Rodney Hood (illness) lasted just 13 minutes on Friday against the Raptors.
Hood should be commended but he’s not ready yet. Joe Ingles was productive as a result, scoring nine points with seven assists, four steals and two threes in 29 minutes. Anytime Hood isn’t going, then Ingles is getting close to being an auto plug-and-play. Shelvin Mack added 17 points, four rebounds, five assists, two threes and a steal in a line that’s pretty fluky before the Christmas break. He’ll be more of a borderline play while Dante Exum is out.
