Jackson brought the right attitude to team but he should have kept himself in better shape. Too bad, he is worth more than Mullens

Doc did say he was on DJ the last 48 hours because DJ was getting out of focus on his defense. Tonight DJ really did well overall.

Doc said what I've been saying and got criticized for. DJ's D dropped off lately. He said he came down on DJ a lot the last few days and was happy to see him return to early season form.

Luigi I agree 100 percent. Crawford has been borderline "good" on D regularly this year. For the first time of his career at 33 years old lol.

Damn. DJ looked like Bill Russell tonight. Awesome performance.

Since I'm in Central Florida I had to watch Orlando's call of the game. They mentioned that DJ and Blake are the 3rd best rebounding duo since the 1980-81 season (minimum 10 rebs for each).

  1. D. Rodman (17.3)/D. Robinson (10.7) 1993-94 SA

  2. C. Barkley (12.8)/M. Malone (11.8) 1985-86 PHI

  3. D. Jordan (13.4)/B. Griffin (10.5) 2013-14 LAC

  4. D. Mutombo (12.3)/G. Anderson (11.5) 1991-92 DEN

  5. C. Oakley (12.1)/P. Ewing (11.2) 1990-91 NYK

Hope we keep it up!

Barnes was 1-10 tonight. And it FELT like it. I liked the defense by Morris. He couldn't hit but that's no surprise since just jumping right into the fire. For a guy who didn't shoot well (was well defended I thought) and only played 23 minutes, Blake did well with 16 points, 8 rebounds, 6 assists and 2 steals. In a way I'm glad he didn't have to have a big performance tonight. We'll need him to play bigger in other games. But Blake must understand we need him. We can't afford him to have foul trouble. Admittedly I didn't like the first two calls against him, but that's the way it goes.

I'm emotionally done with barnes. I'm hoping a gm will take him, all the better he is on a "decent" contract, even though he is still overpaid.

According to Brian Sieman (@bsieman)

"Matt Barnes putting up extra shots after hours."

He was practicing all by himself on his shots, after the game today. Guy knows he is struggling form the field.

Ah okay. I mean he was never great from the outside. Merely okay. What I liked about him last year was his versatility. Slashing, shooting, at times even posting up. To go along with his defense, rebounding and steals.

Collison was wonderful, i hope he isn't really hurt. If he can play near that level we will be just fine.

He's not a 3 point shooter. He should know that by now. His priorities should be finding a way to slash through for an easy bucket or do what he does best by leaking out

That Is good. He needs to cut down on the 3s unless they are open corner 3s and try to slash/shoot from mid range.

DJ really is one of the better C's in the league this year. Just dominating again tonight. Team looked crazy good and we still missed a ton of open shots. Barnes will be fine, this is only his 10th game back. He might need another 20 games but he'll be sharp in the 2nd half of the season.

So Jax is a goner. If he didn't play tonight, he's probably waived soon. I don't really see how Hedo is going to help us but maybe (hopefully) it's Bynum.

I agree with you. I think all of us know. He is better at slashing then anything. Just hope that his shot-missing doesn't get on his head. Probably why he commits some mental errors at time. He is pressing the issue.

That is what woked for him last year. Hopefully he goes back to it.

As THE DUDE said, he is coming back from injury, heck most of this guys are (Dudley), but we will need them for the final push.

Barnes is a year older and not playing for a contract...these things are important. I'm tired if signing past their prime players to multiple year deals

I think barnes is forcing his game.. Every Time he gets the ball he wants to shoot and that is not how he plays. He needs to worry about defending and making the right decision not forcing up anything.. Btw willie green looks good tonite aka wet willie

He has and maybe for the first time in his career he is putting forth a honest consistent effort. The issue is that its affecting his shot because of the increase in minutes due to JJ being out.

I said this earlier but CP and jamal (since he entered the starting lineup) had been playing some very good defense on opposing backcourts for the most part. The offense just hasn't always been there.

If DJ brings that type of game every night, he'll be a lock for DPOY... probably MIP too.

All I kept thinking all game is "why is Matt Barnes taking such terrible three's". Early in the clock, medium contest, or on secondary break, and Barnes is just firing away, lol

I understand open catch and shoot 3's, definitely take those, but he wasn't even taking smart 3's.

is this something that needs to be wondered? Wink
