Max Christie will start in place of D’Angelo Russell (knee soreness) tonight against Denver. Christie’s perimeter defense and rebounding in particular have been impactful of late.

Had a procedure done on his knee (likely a knee drainage which is often the case with NBA players) that's pre-scheduled. You're usually good to go 48 hours later.

So he should be ready by next game.

Christie's defense tonight will be tested as he's likely Murray's assignment.

KCP is out tonight which honestly is helpful for us lol. He's been balling out whenever I've watched a Denver game. Hope you miraculously recover for the next game KCP

He thinks the Lakers are 3rd behind them? What's he smoking? I would say the Lakers have a shot of taking a game or two from the Clippers in a 7 game series. Nuggets? Nothing has changed from last year. OKC and Minny better. Dallas better.

We can play with the Suns and Pels I think.

That's similar to a style of lineup we put together a solid run with at the start of the season. It was just with DLO running the point with Reaves as 6th man.


Max Christie being the defensive wing that can hit threes instead of Reddish, and Hachimura instead of Prince.

Not that they’re third, they obviously aren’t because they’ve lost a bunch of games they should have won this year. But that they’d be the favorite against any of the other teams in a series.

So I guess DLO went to the wrong mechanic for his "tune up procedure" Still can't get over that wording by Ham xD

Let's go Max, hopefully he has a great game
