Every team needs energy players who keep things rowdy and I have to give this guy his props for staying ready when his number is called and for not pouting just because his PT has been cut down.
He honestly strikes me as a dude without much worries. I don't know that he cares all that much (relatively of course) about his playing time, he's a professional in that respect.
I'll give him props for coming in and having a couple really nice dimes to Clark and to Sacre. It's important that when we bring in our PG off the bench, the offense doesn't get away from what we want. It can be a different look, but it needs to be the same idea: get the ball inside.
He and Blake do a good job of penetrating (whoa that sounds weird) and giving the ball to cutters. It's a slightly different look than Nash who attacks with the pick and roll and really picks apart defenses. And of course both are pretty different from the "Kobe-post-up" offense. It's a luxury and a great one to have when you can attack from so many different places.
