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
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.
