Lakers sharpshooter Kentavious Caldwell-Pope is taking it 'to another level'
Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, who hit seven three-pointers in Thursday's win at Milwaukee, is cementing himself as a perfect complement to the Lakers' stars.
For a month it was miserable, a shooter who didn’t make shots drawing the ire ofthe Lakers’home fans brick after brick.But on Thursday night in the Lakers’ 113-106 win at Milwaukee, here was the same player, angry at himself for passing down shots earlier in the week, firing at every clean look, hitting seven of 10 attempts from three-point territory as he continued to cement himself as a perfect complement to the Lakers’ stars.
“It’s one of the more rewarding things in coaching,” Vogel said Thursday in a videoconference. “When you have a player that was basically not a fan favorite of Laker Nation to start the season last year, came out of the gates a little bit slow. But when you see a guy that plays as hard as he does, that brings value whether he’s making shots or missing shots, guys like that earn minutes. When they earn minutes, they get more comfortable shooting the basketball, and he really had a remarkable growth year last year and has taken it to another level this year.”Read more: Los Angeles Times »
