D'Antoni has high regard for him soooo he'll get good minutes assuming he stays intact on and off the floor.




true...let's just wait til Blake misses his first 2 jumpshots and is behind Duhon in the rotation lol


better yet, hesitates on wide open shots and allows his man to come and cover him after he pump fakes with no one in the vacinity :man10:

Steve Blake isn't the best backup PG by miles in the NBA, but sure is better than Duhon/Morris at the very least. I for one am excited for his return.

Better, yes. That doesn't tell us much about his game, but yeah... he's better. :man10:

None of them are the best backup PG's.......

None of them are average backup PG's.......

All of them are on the same level of bottom tier players in the league. Saying one is better than the other is really just fighting over who gets to finish the race 2nd to last.

Haha I can't wait till some of you change your negative perception about Blake. He was actually doing really well on the defensive end and had a quicker step prior to his injury. He didn't really have any turnovers either.

fail, he turned it over when he tried to pass to Jamison foot and lead to a 3pt play on the other end which was on him as well.

I'll continue to be the sole praiser of Blake on this board. The guy manages the team very well. Before he got injured he was playing very well. Tonight he came in and kept the offense flowing. He doesn't look for his shot but will take it when he has too. Solid game from Blake after being gone for so long.

LOL. Yes, he should be benched for having that turnover. Forget that 4 assist cause the dude sucks.

I praised the guy for a long time man, but he really doesn't deserve a whole ton of praise. :man10:

I think he played alright today. Definitely his energy is different than Duhon's. Duhon a lot of the time seemed like he wasn't trying all that hard. Well now he's on the bench where he belongs.

I look forward to Blake's effort if not his effectiveness.

Hey, I've been "defending" (not hating, pointing out the things he did well) the guy too. He can stink it up once in a while, but I never understood the level of hate he got. I understand criticism, I understand being annoyed, but some here just seem to go a little bit overboard on their perception of his level of play.

You are right Real he doesn't deserve a whole "ton" of praise. He also doesn't deserve nearly any of the hate he gets. The guy puts on the floor, he doesn't make a great deal of mistakes and he usually keeps the offense flowing. He isn't agressive enough at times but he is a very solid backup. I remember getting into a discussion about how Blake was actually not playing bad last year. When I broke down all the plays all I got was crickets. His defense is pretty darn good.

My bad.... I did not mean to alienate others who aren't just trying hating for the sake of hating the guy. :bow:

Blake does not do anything to impact the game most of the time BUT he does not screw up much either. He sometimes passes up opportunities to shoot. When Blake takes it upon himself to tee it up, he isn't too bad and makes the defense account for him.

He was solid in his first game back tonight. Moved the ball well, kept his dribble alive, didn't get trapped often or make many dumb mistakes. Veteran play from a veteran player. You don't need Steve Blake providing heavy lifting, but for a team that has struggled so much with turnovers, dumb plays and other self-inflicted nonsense, having a guy that can be more reliable and intelligent is a big upside.

why should a guy get praise for doing the basics? Sure if you compare him to the other scrub like Morris, Blake does deserve praise......guys over the years who played above and beyond expectation deserve praise like Brown when he 1st got here and got his chance, Ariza, and now Clark. These guys deserve praise cause they played beyond what we would've hoped for.

Feels way more comfortable having him on the court when nash is out than when morris or duhon are in.

I don't disagree. I think people get caught up in needing someone to blame or needing someone to be hard on. Sometimes there's no clear cut "zero" in the game. He went out there and he did some nice things on the floor. Nothing special, nothing great, but certainly he was a lot better out there then Duhon/Morris are.
