Lakers News: Marcelo Huertas Talks About Impressive Preseason Debut
Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

After missing the first five preseason games with hamstring and immigration issues, point guard Marcelo Huertas was finally able to get on the basketball floor for the Los Angeles Lakers on Saturday.

Although no one knew what to expect from the Brazilian guard, Huertas didn’t disappoint in his preseason debut in purple and gold. Huertas came off the bench during the win over the Golden State Warriors at the Valley View Casino Center in San Diego and instantly made an impact on the game.

In 12 minutes off the bench, Huertas scored four points, dished out six assists and blocked a shot. The 32-year-old clearly made an impression and convinced many Lakers fans why the coaching staff seems to be leaning toward giving him a spot on the final 15-man roster.

Huertas will be back in action on Monday night with the Lakers going back home to the Staples Center to play host to Damian Lillard’s Portland Trail Blazers.

  • Didn’t get to catch the game, but any legit help will be welcomed with open arms. Especially if it gets Kobe some rest without giving up leads or going down further.

  • Huertas – You have very Superior NBA skill and ability, right today ! Your abilities are what Our Rookie D’Angelo will have as a Point Guard, in about 9 years. Welcome to the Huertas Era ! You are on the same team as the NBA’s best Point Guard ever, Magic Johnson – so glad you showed us what a point guard is really like, once again

  • BS should play him with Nance jr. & Upshaw. The way he runs the pick & roll i feel we have a few highlight plays coming up, even can’t jump Sacre was able to get a dunk because of him. Imagine what Nance Jr. can do.

  • I was in J. Brown’s corner but was quickly convinced by Huertas playmaking abilities. Sorry J. Brown your skillsey is almosy the same as Young & Williams, Huertas just brings a new dimension to the 2nd unit.

  • Why did you copy/paste what you just wrote in another thread?

    It wasn’t insightful the first time.

    And only trolls and children are inept enough that they can’t write something new.

  • J. Brown was CLARKSON team mate and played SG and Clarkson PG, they both can play with hi IQ, its that Brown is very quite and just does his duty, he is a great shooter.

  • Did you notice he raises his one leg when he shoots just like NASH I noticed that last night, a very good PG, he took charge and moved the players around and made every thing very simple which lead to 31 Pts same as the starters.

We are going to have a great bench, they will change a lot of games.

  • This guy has not disappointed! He is very talented. His game reminds me of Nash so it’s a shock that he hasn’t played in the NBA sooner but glad we have him now.

    As soon as he got into the game the tempo changed completely. I haven’t been that excited about a Laker game in a LONG time! Very entertaining to watch.

  • Huertas, Bass, Williams, and Hibbert.

    What awesome veteran pickups !

    They all provide us with triple A insurance this season.

    Great or positive “Ability, attitude, and Assurance.

    The veterans obviously offer the glue to so many young talented promising prospects. But these young guys can really ball too. Nice mix of players !

    We are lucky to have guys who obviously want to be here playing with the Lakers.
    We have less ego, immaturity, and selfishness. Which means less distractions and divisions. And more team unity.

    Still we must expect some ups and downs with so many players who have never played together and a new coach. It will take time for the coach and all the players to get on the same page. May they remain healthy during the process and exceed all expectations.

    Go Lakers !

  • I liked how he played yesterday, he is a good player, sometimes too much “Accelerated ” (don’t know if that word is correct). My fear is about his injuries history and age.
    But we have no other PG like him, so we need him. And D’Angelo can learn a lot from his experience.

  • That’s what i wanna see, at least in preseason! With kobe and hibbert randle! Clarkson played great as well!
    One thing i noticed is that it’s not the fact that kobes absence from the team, plays better, it’s the fact that it opens up opportunities for other players to step up!
    So it opens up a whole other world of pace and play.
    I love kobe Bryant to death but he’s a ball stopper alot of times, especially based on somehow every time kobe sits out against warriors we serve them up!
