No..He's just Dudley. Expect this when the real season starts.

^That's true, this is what he regularly does during a whole season

See how fundamental Redick was defensively? Deny post position, follow his man around screens, not give up on the play and find his man again, then now, stay with his man and contest enough to cause the miss. You don't have to be a great shut down one on one defender, but if you put effort, have the IQ and know the system, you'll help your team.

LMAO I love CP3. Jordan wasn't ready for the lob and CP3 screamed "GET UP!!!" at him.

This is why I was very low on him. His basketball iq is nonexistent. He loves to take the dumbest shots and his defense needs work.

The single biggest improvement from Blake this summer has been his D. He really needs to go back to rookie Blake on the glass though.

He really does I don't like seeing him outrebounded by a 5'11 PG.

Same here. I think people thought he had higher IQ than he did, but in the Dj vs Mullens conversation that came up in summer, someone mentioned DJ being low IQ as an argument for Mullens, and I had to remind them that Mullens has even lower basketball IQ.

If he was a high IQ player, the hope for him to be useful would be a lot higher, but it has always been part of what was holding him back in terms of being as good as his size, athletic ability and skill-set would suggest he could be.

Maybe over the season playing with these guys he'll slightly improve?

Wait Dudley has low bball iq? Did you make a mistake with that lol?

Yea DJ isn't the greatest in terms of bball iq but he knows his role offensively and is getting smarting defensively. He isn't Javale Mcgee at least. I know I bashed his bball iq lots of times but compared to Mullens he looks like a genius.

What the hell kind of play was that? I like when Blake handles the ball, but not necessarily before the buzzer.

Somehow my autocorrect made my Mullens typo change to Dudley, I really don't understand, haha

DJ's IQ doesn't seem so bad anymore, thanks Mullens lol.

So far the best performers were DJ, Redick and CP3.

Dudley and BG did fairly well.

Our bench in general was craptastic.

JJ"s got his hands full with Hayward, that's for sure!

Thoughts:

Redick is awesome! Everything I hoped he would be

Still worried about Dudley

Concerned about Blake's ankle a bit

Our bench is a major liability - worse than I thought. Hate to say it but we need more of a defensive anchor like odom in that unit

Without fail every game we go several minutes without scoring. This is really bad, it's now a trend.

I don't see the defensive intensity from DJ that he had early in preseason (but he is for sure the second best big on team)

Crawford still sticks out likea. Sore thumb - I don't think he's shot above 33 percent this preseason. I'm in of trading him for backup big.

Also guys, remember that Barnes hasn't played. There will be the option to play:

Collison

Crawford

Bullock

Barnes

(Center)

To try and help out the defensive situation, even though it's a small ball situation. Yea, sad that doing that is supposedly a better option defensively.

Why can't Hollins stop hacking people though, it's like he can't control his limbs well enough

I think Blake's still adjusting to the system. I feel like we're gonna see more and more of old Blake once he gets comfortable with everything that's going on.

Redick+DJ+Blake were the only standouts for me first half. CP3 had 7 assists but a bit of sloppy ball handling and took just like 1 or 2 shots.. which I'm not cool with. It's time to stop the 1-3 shots in first half deal. He's in the best shape of his life and he needs to attack from opening tip which will open things up for the team. He doesn't need to shoot 10 times.. but say 5 shots minimum a half just to keep the defense honest. Everybody else pretty much outside of Dudley a little bit was a complete nonfactor including Collison.

Man what our bench needs badly right now is a drug free, somewhat in shape Odom. People don't realize that he was our best defender last season and the guy who anchored the bench defense along with Bledsoe and Barnes. Too bad Odom has all of those issues....

Well to be fair 3 FG + 4 Fts is the same as 5 FG. 5 FG in the first half is fine especially if the offense is running smoothly.

Redick hustling back and bothering Jefferson's shot, I really love his effort on defense

"Dudley deflects the ball" is going to be a frequent phrase

Aw, good pass by Blake, but JJ missed the layup. He'll make that in most games.

Check Denver's roster, another guard makes absolutely no sense.

Lawson/Miller/Fournier/Hamilton. Chandler is also a SF/SG. Not happening. Even if they didn/t, value wise, no one acceprs that deal.

Mullens is the best thing that could happen for DJs image and perception.

I saw the 3rd quarter against PHX and now im watching a brickfest against Jazz. Kinda worried about the big guys.

Despite the fact JJ played better than I expected figuring he'd be extra rusty tonight, I'm not sure I'm loving the way the team looks overall tonight.

Definitely need Barnes back. Our lean 6'7 defender, slasher, rebounder, team player.

I'm not loving the way the team looks tonight either. But this is preseason and we're still missing one important player in Matt. Perhaps he'll play next game.
