He needs to get more minutes until Dwight is 100% and Pau can play better. There is minutes there

Played well, and hustled as usual. The refs robbed him a couple of times.

he needs to be in the rotation. it sucks he only gets to play when dwight is in foul trouble but there has to be a way to get him solid minutes every game. him and metta were easily the reason we got back in the game. 6 offensive boards and 14 points (6-9 FG) are you kidding me. def got fouled a lot too so prob would have had more than 2 trips to the line which he was making. his midrange was ON tonight and he was ready and aggressive with nash's passes off pnr. loved his game tonight.

seriously hope this game woke dantoni up and made him realize he has to play him and especially play him with nash and metta. sorry jamison but one player at a time and hill is first

hope we dont trade him bc his so vital to our bench and team energy...his trade value is at a all time high right now though so i hope dantoni wants to keep playing him bc hes sure earned it more than any bench player from last years playoffs and now imo...

Awesome effort. Definitely a big reason to why we got the win

I think Hill's nickname should be Predator because he is one ugly mother ....!

Predator was certainly awesome tonight. That little jumper of his is automatic. Love the hustle and energy. If I were a betting man I think Pau will be traded before Hill. Hill doesn't quite bring all the stuff that Gasol brings but he nearly replicates what Pau does, in a different way of course, and is by far cheaper!

I like this guy. I'm really glad he got to get some burn. Hopefully he continues to get time as we go forward.

If he had a better mid range game he would be starting over the cowardly lion.

Mid range game is something that can be taught/learned.

Hustle can't. He's a keeper.

Gasol: 3-9ft: 23% 10-15ft: 16% 16-23ft: 41% PER: 14.19

Hill: 3-9ft: 28% 10-15ft: 50% 16-23ft: 33% PER: 17.3

Pau's passing is a huge asset, as is Hill's energy and defense.

It's an insult to Pau that this comparison can even be discussed. He deserves to be insulted and Hill deserved to be cheered.

I found myself more amped and hopeful when I saw a Nash/Hill PnR being set up vs a Nash/Pau PnR; and the results confirmed by gut judgments.

Jordan definitely should have regular rotation minutes. Hell there's times out there he looks better than Pau or Dwight in some of the areas where they normally look good. If not fighting back from whatever is hindering them still at this point. And on top he has and he's starting to hit with regularity a sweet, nice elevation for a big man.....midrange J. He keeps trying to tell "Dan" that he can play in his system. Hell yeah he can. Night in and night out. Play the man. :bang: You're an idiot if you don't or worse push to trade him.

Hill's offensive rebound rate best in the league at 21.2. Next is Andre Drummond w/16.8. A 4.4% difference. Let's process that for a second.


Play Hill more and Pau less
