    there are two sides of the court and Marshall’s play on the defensive end has been shockingly bad. The Lakers struggles lately have been mainly on the defensive side of the ball.

    What we can see with our own eyes in watching Marshall play as he has taken a large role with the team is that he lacks any semblance of lateral quickness. This is most prevalent when he is in an open space, such as defending a fast break, and the offensive player blows by right by him. In these situations you don’t expect the defender to stop the offensive player since they are in a huge disadvantage, but this is where you can see just how slow Marshall moves. It is Marshall’s shortcomings in his defensive abilities that are hurting the Lakers on the defensive side of the ball.

    If we focus only on the time that Marshall is on the floor, the numbers will match closely what we see in the Lakers as a team in the second half of their season above. Marshall’s defensive rating is 109.8, which means that the team gives up 109.8 per 100 possessions when Marshall is on the floor. That rating is inline with the teams overall defensive rating in the 2nd half and significantly higher than how they performed prior to Marshall leading the point.

    Furthermore, that defensive rating would rank Marshall close to the bottom in the league for guards. For comparative purposes, Jason Terry ranks lowest amoungst guards at 112.9 and CJ Wason of Indiana ranks first at 91.2.

    Will take Marshall over Steve Blake, and old man always hurt overrated Steve Nash. Just hope Buss, and Kupchack have sense enough to sign him for next year. Cant wait to see him play with Kobe. When Marshall gets a consistent jump shot the sky is the limit. Go Lakers! Heck Ryan Kelly had 20 last night.!

    This is driving the likes of 903, Pwnt/Harr, KatY, Alex, Hal, and ToolSAC completely insane with envy and embarrassment after they all predicted his demise in the D league. Karma be a big ol fat cow plopping down to squash the collective rage and hate cults...

    Marshall handed out a team-high 14 assists and scored 19 points on 7 of 11 shooting from the field, including 4 of 5 from downtown, and 1 of 1 from the free throw line. Three of his four treys came in the second half, including two in the third quarter. He did all of his damage in 44 minutes of game action, also adding four rebounds and one steal.

    Marshall has double-digit assists in all but two of eight January games. He has averaged 12.0 points, 12.2 assists and 3.4 rebounds over his last five games played.
