Anthony Morrow looked like was fully back Monday night vs. the Cavaliers: 16 points, on 6-of-12 shooting, and 10 points on 4-of-5 in the fourth quarter, when he hit critical shots under pressure.
More importantly, he played 26 minutes, about 10 more than team trainers would have preferred.
But that doesn't guarantee him a return to the starting lineup, says his coach. "We’re in a pretty good rhythm, we’re 3-1 in our homestand with the rotation exactly the way it is," Avery Johnson told reporters at practice Tuesday morning. "So, sometimes you can 'overcoach' and try to screw things up.''
Morrow has no problem with it. "Stephen Graham’s playing great basketball'', Morrow said who will share spare shooting guard duties with Sasha Vujacic. "He’s defending well, he’s stepping up to the challenge of guarding different guys, elite players every night, and he’s doing a pretty good job."
