Valanciunas still adjusting to NBA
Valanciunas said last week that he still had not adjusted to the rhythm of the NBA game, but said on Wednesday night that he's feeling better -- but still isn't content.
"I feel more comfortable now, but we're still losing, I need something more to help the team to win," Valanciunas said matter-of-factly and you have to respect that attitude from a rookie.
"Not saying that I'm going to lead the team to victory, but I need some more, I need some more."
Valanciunas said he has been working on his jump shot in practice, because if it becomes an effective weapon he will create opportunities for teammates because opponents won't be leaving him alone and doubling elsewhere.
After a bit of a lull, Valanciunas has picked up his game in a major way and already has become one of the more important players on the team.
