Koval 20 / Lakhin 10 / Ado 10

The nice thing about our depth is we can play very different lineups. We can go very big or very small, all shooters or all defense.
I am bumping up my win projections by 2 games based on our quality depth and the idea that Lakhin is a major surprise as well Dejulius just had the type of game we were hoping for. I don't think DD is good for 20 or so on a nightly basis but if he can get in that 13 range average it means his %'s are going to be better than last year or the first two games of this year. That is a big IF but he was pronounced best player in pre season practice so there is hope. Lakhin also got some run just before the season started as the best stat stuffer in practice.

Early season reports you can usually take with a grain of salt...but if they hold true our offense suddenly takes a significant jump in potential output. The play of Vik so far has made me an early believer and last night DD finally got some shots to fall. Hopefully that is the rule rather than the exception.

Defensively we took a step back but some of that can be adjusted pretty easily with game film or lineup adjustments.
