The guard first came into the game in the first half, where he played for two minutes and turned the ball over twice. Coach Mike D’Antoni quickly took Marshall out of the game, but put him back in during garbage time at the end of the second half. That’s when Marshall took his only shot, a 3-pointer, which he made look easy. However, he had two more turnovers.
When asked about how his new player did, D’Antoni said:
It really isn’t fair to assess how Marshall will fit in with this system, especially since the lineups have been constantly changing since the beginning of the season.
D'Antoni on Kendall Marshall in the few mins he saw him play: "It's hard, didn't see a whole lot." (on TWC)— Lakers Nation (@LakersNation) December 22, 2013
Marshall has already had quite a journey in the NBA, after spending a year with the Phoenix Suns, and then was waived by the Washington Wizards after being traded to them. He’s signed a non-guaranteed contract with the purple and gold.
