As a result of Felts shooting so well tonight DJ only really got to play the point in the 2nd half.
He wasn't bad - wasn't fantastic, but not bad tonight.
Just wanted to add that I was very happy that in 31 mins of play and while dishing out 6 assists, DJ only turned the ball over the 1 time - and even that was questionable IMO. I thought he made a great move into the paint, faked out his defender with a little Dream Shake and made the shot all while keeping his pivot foot down.
I don't think he travelled.
If I remember the play you're talking about IMO it was close and could have been a no call. I'll look at it again (because I have it on DVR!!!!!), but if memory serves someone got a hand on the ball as he was coming in, then it "looked" like his pivot foot shifted just a little right after he regrouped, and it was more of a slide vs. lifting up.
But regardless if it was or wasn't, I'm all for him getting in there and trying. It was a good move.
TOs are a double edged sword, and as I said earlier in another thread some are worse than others. I have no problem with anyone making a somewhat risky pass if it's trying to feed the interior guys, and the way we're crowded in the paint normally there will be TOs.
That lazy ass pass Mek did on the perimeter east to west? That's the kind that drive me crazy, as those almost always end in a fast break/layup dunk for the bad guys.
I still think (the lack of assist from DJ) that it falls on what he is being asked to do when he goes into the game...we were obviously scoring last night (which has not been the case in recent games) so he was in a position to dish and he did...I still think he is doing the role LB wants him to do or he'd be ripped if he were not performing the way LB wanted him to...again this is just my opinion...
Tonight in DJ's start he had 15 points and 8 assists, and he looked pretty dang good
Felton, had 26/7, so I can't really tell you which one was "the" point in the first, and I couldn't tell a difference in the second...pretty impressive for that shoot first guard, huh :p
