The pseudo-rookie wall has hit him pretty hard.

Wow. I know he isn't this bad. He has really hit a slump. I hope he gets it together at some point; I like what he adds when he's playing well for us...

His jumpshot looks AWFUL. Its not just the makes and misses its like he doesn't even comes close and clanks it hard off the rim. At least keep hustling, we're gonna need him since its the 2nd of a back to backs and Nash/Pau are usually awful in these games

^That's a good point. He can still be a valuable rotation player, IMO

He needs to play with that "I'm trying to make the team" energy again

Exactly what I was thinking. At least we'd have someone on the bench who has the potential to play great if called upon. Unlike Morris :freak2:

He missed some jumpers and airballed an open 3 lol but other than that his energy was incredible in that 3rd Q when we went on a 13-1 run. Keep it up. I have faith in him to play much better at home

Great effort, but what's up with that jump shot? looks terrible

Played better. But he just can't defend anymore. He'll actually make an effort to try and block the shot, but after that, he can't jump anymore. He's done after one jump. Sad, really.

He was better all-around tonight, but the shot is still off. He was all over the place - too strong, offline, too short.

^^ Agreed. Great to see him hit a couple early though. He played with that old hustle and heart again which was good. Got to get his mid-range more together again.

He is looking much more like himself tonight. Hopefully that shot falls.

I only watched the 2nd half and thought he was a total offensive liability out there ... fortunately 8 mile switched on Little Buckets too

I really hope he's back, maybe the little rest he was getting going back to the bench and getting much fewer minutes has paid off and he's gotten a 2nd wind.
