Lakers' David Nwaba: Sees 22 minutes off bench Sunday
Nwaba went for seven points (3-5 FG, 1-2 FT), five rebounds and one steal over 22 minutes in Sunday's 125-120 loss to the Cavaliers.
With Nick Young (illness) sidelined, Nwaba saw a healthy allotment of minutes off the bench and was reasonably productive. The 24-year-old guard didn't respond well to a brief run with the first unit but his recent move to the bench may provide him the opportunity to hone his craft against a lesser quality of competition. Although he's been modestly involved offensively, Nwaba does encouragingly have a 62.5 percent success rate (5-for-8) from the field over the last two games.
