I'm glad to see that he's been able to step in a little bit more now on his shots....him and mwp get so wide open often but rather than step in they always seem to chuck it for 3's even when they're off. However with that said, his 3pt shooting is atrocious, I though he was gona get it together when he hit his 1st one but just brick after brick and boy does he blow defensively, again I dont care to much about getting beaten 1 on 1 but dude is consistently losing his man off ball every dam gm. Pretty much has very little awareness of his man when they're constantly on the move, I dont think there has a been a gm this season where Jodi doesn't get beat backdoor at least once every game.

Jodie is a terrible man defender. He gets lost on off-ball screens so easily it's awful. He gets overpowered by bigger SG's. Only thing I can praise him for is his hustle.

He had a real nice offensive game, but defensively he's taking too many pages out of Kobe's book.

He stops paying attention when the ball moves quickly. He gets caught watching the ball too much while his man just cuts back door. When he's playing man defense I can almost see his mind thinking instead of just reacting. He's a step and a half too slow around picks, around jump shots...

The one thing he does really well is close out on open jump shooters.

Too much gambling on D, but he hit some big shots too.

better than the usual Meeks game. made mistakes but hit some huge shots. can't complain since everyone was missing shots. he did get hammered on a ton of plays with no calls. no surprise bc it was Joey Crawford baseline ignoring it.

good game keep it up

He hit shots late and I know that's something Finwe has been on him about all season (deservedly).

Good game by him. He worked his tail off on the other end too and just like Morris, it helps a lot when he's every bit as athletic as the guy he's guarding.

Well it is about time Meeks hit a wide open 3. His defense also looked better, too, here and there. Let's hope he keeps this up. :jam2:

Even though he missed a lot, his makes were big, especially since no one was scoring. Good hustle too

Yeah, I used to really get mad when he missed a "momentum" 3 or something like that. Not tonight, he hit some timely shots, especially considering how hard it was to score for everyone

I can't stand his inconsistent shooting. He hit some key shots, though. He's still a liability out there though when his shot isn't going in...

Played better towards the end but I still don't trust him as our starting 2 and getting the bulk of the minutes. I would rather go with a Nash/Blake backcourt if Nash ever comes back.

outside of those 2 3's at the end, I didn't think he had much positive effect on the game....getting backdoored, gambling on D, getting killed on screens, leaving shooters wide open, typical Jodie D. We really need a wing next yr who can create his own shots, his inability to finish at the rim is amazing considering his age/athleticism, its like seeing Fisher out there attempting layups w/o the smarts.

WTF is up with Meeks lowering his head and going spastic driving to the hoop. Dude is WORSE than Fisher. At least Fish was smart enough to try to draw the foul.

dude better have the game of his life cause Harden certainly will eat him up, well just about anyone he'll be guarding will eat him up.

Yeah those two he hit in the 4th were really nice. You could see he was feeding off the crowd and the bench.

I thought guys like Meeks were supposed to be the s*** in D'Antoni's system.

Can't make a shot and gets caught watching all day, but thanks for hitting that 3 in the 4th vs the Spurs and putting them out.

I just want Jodie "miss buckets" Meeks to makes some d*** 3 pointers on the regular. No power drives to the hoop, just "catch and shoot" man! I shouldn't feel such uncertainty when he takes a 3, afterall he's supposed to be our 3 point specialist.

That dunk on harden was huge. like i think that really put us over the top and i knew we'd win. he attacked and didnt settle. and hit huge free throws. numbers wont show what he was doing out there in the 4th and OT.

Him and Morris i thought did as good as you can on Harden in the 4th and OT

How can he miss so many open 3s? I have a feeling I would hit at least one more.

Harden missed OPEN shots, dont go giving to much credit to those two especially Meeks who went under the screen almost everytime giving Harden opens looks....dude need to go I dont give a crap if he hustles blah blah, he's brought here to hit open shots and he's NOT doing that, if you guys think he's gona step it up in the playoffs you should check his #'s from last years playoff with Phi and you'll think otherwise.
