1 for 9 before that dunk. I'm sorry, that's just pathetic. It's not like he was making up for it on the other end either. This is not Gasol going 3 for 17 but blocking three shots and grabbing 16 boards. This was what it was - terrible shooting from your shooter. He's had some real duds this season, but this one was particularly glaring. Come one dude, your one job is to make those open shots . . . so make them! Don't miss 80% of them. That just sucks.

He hit some big free throws and had a nice dunk there in the end. But I hated having him guard harden there at the end of the game. Kept going under the darn screens and Harden was just missing.

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


True. What I learned from him over the years living in Philly is that he is inconsistent. 1 or 2 out of 5 games. he will get hot and can not miss shots. But the other games he can not hit a shot. But he will always hustle and try his best on defense. That's why when we signed him, Sixer fans didn't really care about losing him. He is a liability on offense, but he will always hustle and try. It's weird like you said, since he has a nice stroke.

I yelled when I saw him drive to the basket, did not expect that kind of dunk, or any dunk from him.

that missed layup was SO bad that i actually laughed...it reminded me of Duncan swatting him to the floor...someone should make a lowlight reel...hopefully Cahooka gets bored one of these days

Damn, the hate for Fisher is ridiculous. I know most of you new generation fans don't remember what he's done but come on. You'd think a dude who won 5 rings with the franchise is immune to this kind of crap :disagree:

As for Meeks he needs to learn the MENTAL aspect of hitting shots. Dude can shoot obviously but he's over thinking it when he's out there. He just needs to shoot.

Understand the criticism completely but lets give him some props for the opportune FTs and dunks!

ok then, maybe he can learn how to draw fouls on his miss layup attempts, that better? and you can't teach Clutch.

April 3 PT% - 28.6%

March 3 PT% - 32%

Our "sniper" has been shooting 30% the last two months from 3. Step yo game up.

I thought Harden was going to outscore the squad the whole game. :man5: Then Coach Hee Haw had an epiphany...slide World Peace there and let Meeks handle Parsons. Yeah, that dunk in traffic was as surprising as an SI supermodel showing up on my doorstep.

this should not surprise anyone if they knew how he finished off his career in Phi....pretty much benched towards the end of the season and shot a 23% from 3's in the playoffs. I'm not a rah rah lets cheer him on and hope he gets better in the playoff because all indication point to a NO, I would hope he proves me wrong...I'd gladly eat my words like I did with Blake.

He really needs to start hitting those wide open shots, otherwise he's just a huge liability defensively without bringing anything to the table. With that said I did like how he came through for us towards the end with the dunk and clutch FTs. Step it up Jodie.

Please let him go after this season.

Can't hit a shot and gets smoked on defense. Barely scraping together a 30% 3PT over the last two months. Say it with me now....
