I don't know that we have a third best player. This team fuctions best when the role players simply excel at their roles, like Scott did last night.
Not so fast, my friend. We're talking about "Best Player".
3. LS Jr.
While everyone is focused on LSJ's intermittent scoring disappearing act, I'll argue that his rebounding is more important than any one aspect of Scott's game. Smith's D (guarding 3s and at times 4s on switches) and hustle are also critical. While Scott is coming on, particularily in transition, until he can finish at the rim or hit more than half of his free throws in crunch time, he cannot be considered as good or as valuable as LSJ.
Scott is a great rebounder for a point guard, plays great defense as well and hustles as much as LSJ. Scott needs to improve on his free throws, but LSJ struggled with them last night. LSJ at times just makes poor decisions and presses his offense. I think it's a valid comparison that Scott may be the third best player over LSJ or vice versa. For me, it's Scott.
