OT- Darius Morris first minutes

He just checked in third quarter Lakers vs Jazz, those are his first career NBA minutes. Nice to see him in there, I'm happy for him. He did play in couple pre season games but this was his first career game that counts.

He didn't exactly look good out there, but not too bad for his first NBA minutes. 

Luckily for Morris, the two guys ahead of him are either old or super fucking old so as the season goes on, he should get more minutes.  If either of those guys gets just a little banged up, the condensed season will mean missing more time, meaning more PT for Morris.  Hopefully Steve Blake's bruised hand is pretty bad (both for Morris and because I hate the Lakers).

Darius just needs to settle down a bit.  Both of his turnovers were completely self-induced, he just dribbled his way into a turnover.  He's a playmaker, but not enough of one yet at the pro-level to warrant the ball as much as in college.  But he'll settle in, and in a couple years he might be the NBA playmaker he was in AA.
