He is lost on some defensive rotations; the helping and fouling is right on; although, I would like to see how many of those fouls came from defending the '4' position. He's too small and needs to play the 3 exclusively. Defend and hit the open shot should be his job. That's it. This PF crap needs to stop.
In the Clippers game, he was okay. But yesterday he was throwing shots up with 20 seconds on the shot clock. If he was a knockdown 3 point shooter, I would not be as irritated, but he's not a shooter. His midrange is alright. But he took ill-advised shots that irked me last night especially when GS was starting to pour it on. He needs to be smarter in the offense and learn to make timely plays.
His man defense isn't bad, but David Lee is too strong for him in the post, so he compensated by slapping at him. When he was guarding a 3, he was lost after being picked off, and when Jordan Hill was fine with handling JERMAINE O'NEAL, he decided he needed to help so he came over and fouled him on several occasions.
