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.

If he had hit half of his 3s, that dunk wouldn't be necessary. He needs to get his butt back in the gym & shoot 10,000x 3s.

Yes he should have hit more shots early, but he came through at the end of the game. Not from the perimeter, but from attacking the basket and from making free throws.

Props Jodie for coming through when the chips were down. :jam2:

he came through in an important time...but had he hit some shots earlier in the game it wouldn't have been as close. oh well, at least he came through

No one shot well this game. Especially from 3 % wise. I will say hes missing way more open 3's than hes making but he came through when we needed it and created something for himself in the O which is something no one was doing consistently this game nor can continue doing. That dunk he created for himself and it was a big 2 points. the wide open 3 he had when Harden was crying on the ground he should have made. BUT he was aggressive, hustled, stayed with Harden the best anyone on our team can do, bothered him, and was fighting through Asik's illegal screens all game and not giving up.

The games are not gunna be pretty by any means so its a mentality like Meeks' that will really help our team out

Ice cold from outside. What the hell.

Reminds me of 2010 Sasha. A shooter who can't shoot, but can hit free throws and run around.

The dunk and FTs were huge. The D was hit and miss but some of the things he does with the basketball in his hands are truly depressing and sickening.

I can give him a pass for missing those shots (ok not really but still)..but gonna give him kudos for trying..he hung in there and made a critical basket down the stretch and played decent D on Harden in the 4th and OT.. but he HAS to get over those dman screens, giving Harden wide open 3's wtf are you thinking?

mentality dont help us win games, hitting shots does


basketball is mental and physical. doesnt matter if you CAN hit shots if your not tough enough mentally to attack and shoot more after missing a bunch then youre useless. yes he has to hit shots and he is streaky so when hes not hes doing other things and he did tonight.

everyone has to stop hating on a guy who gave us 4 huge points when we needed it and without it would have had a harder time winning this game. Without him that pass to Pau would have been a turnover and dunk instead of 2 FT's for us. Without that baseline dunk that possession would have been trash and we prob would have given up 2 points in transition.

you can do more than hit 3's. he needs to do that but can do other things for us too. others shot like [Swearing is not permitted at Clublakers. You must edit this post prior to submitting.] but still did things on both ends. everyone shot terrible and contributed in other ways.

everybody else impacted the game much more them some dunk, defensively I dont know what you saw or just basing it on box score but just cause Harden had a bad shooting night doesn't mean Meeks had any part in that, players just miss WIDE open shots. IF Harden was a lil smarter he could've driven in anytime he wanted against Meeks. This argument sounds like the one where people gave Sasha a pass for his whole season of crappy play because he hit to those 2 crucial fts' at the end of gm 7 against Bos :freak2:

I have to believe he had stage fright tonight. Probably doesn't perform well under pressure. Well, whatever it is he needs to snap out of it. We NEED him to hit open 3s to stand a chance against anyone. Especially for a team that doesn't have anyone to get their own shots. Dwight & Pau will be kicking it out often when they get double. Everyone pray for Meeks this weekend.

Better do more than pray, better start doing some vodoo goat sacrificing stuff, he shot 23% from 3's last year during Phi playoff run.

Harden missed open shots and contested ones against players who didnt back down and meeks was one of them. he had a couple steals didnt turn it over and played with energy. he's not kobe. hes a backup streaky SG starting. 9 points, a important dunk, big FT's, few steals, hustling for loose balls to save a turnover late in the game. he did things to help us win when it counted and no one can argue that. he isnt gunna be some amazing starting SG but he'll do things that dont show up on the stat sheets. he'll be streaky and its frustrating as hell but you gotta back him up bc hes our starting SG and we know he wont give up. basketball is so much more than just hitting shots. alot goes into every possession and he does it for us. his job is to hit 3's....when it doesnt go down he'll do other things and try again. dude has a shooters mentality and we need that bc in this offense thats what dantoni wants.


idk but i think when the lakers are only up 1 with a little less than 1 minute left in the game, 10 seconds left on the shot clock, possession pretty much a bust, guarded by harden baseline, blow by him, and dunk on 2 defenders to put the lakers up 3 with 50 seconds is pretty big to me.

Strange, he has one of the best-looking shooting strokes I've seen, but he just doesn't hit 'em.

At least his defense was a little better than usual, and that's not saying much, especially allowing Parson's to hit that 3.

Jodie and Sasha have good looking shots and make 80% of their 3's during practice. But they are not making them during the games. If Jodie does not hit his threes during the playoffs, we are not going to beat SA.

agreed. Dunk wouldn't be needed if he would have made one of those wide open looks.
