Yeah, and that second night of a back-to-back doesn't seem to be bothering them too much. That's pretty much only an impossible challenge for us, apparently. roll

DJ having his annual huge second half of season drop a few weeks early. He's been a scrub lately. I don't care if he rebounds he's getting obliterated by everybody he guards and showing the worst rim protection I've ever seen. I'd consider bringing him off the bench and starting Hedo/Blake for a while.

He just had 20 rebounds a night ago. Last year we'd be ranting and raving about a 20 rebound game, and now it's not even mentioned. Realize that DJ has been excellent on defense 80% of the time, and unfocused 20%. He rotates exceedingly well, however when the rest of the team does not, you end up dropping the blame on him. Unfair and stupid.

Actually DJ is well below average in individual rim defense and if you can't admit his drop on D the last two weeks I'm not sure you're watching much. Not only is it proven by numbers but anybody watching sees it. DJ has ZERO business cheating 15 feet off his man EVER and he does it 15 times a game. How often do you see Hibbert at the 3 point line as his man gets a dunk with nobody within 10 feet of him?

Bad perimeter D or not DJ's is to protect the paint, nothing else. Blake is far superior at switches and PNR traps, let him handle it.

I see a 4-game losing streak on the horizon playing like this. Already lost to the Warriors, and the Nuggets (in Denver) and Heat are coming up. Looking forward to the excuses about how "tired" they are like the grind of an NBA schedule is not something that every team has to deal with.

Have you seen Blake try to protect the paint? He doesn't. I agree with your point that DJ 1) cheats too much, and 2) Has become less effective on the defensive (and offensive) end in the past stretch, but in no way should we slot Blake at the 5 and Hedo at the 4. DJ is trying to shore up one of the most pock-ridden paint defenses in the league. And I agree, he's not trying hard enough.

You would complain either way when he rotates to alter or stop someone his man is left open NO ONE HELPS and then he is being destroyed if he sticks to his man easy buckets why is he not helping when the rim is being attacked.

I want him to focus on his rebounding and man d I'm happy with the help d.

I know this may sound stupid but I was playing NBA 2K14 in myCareer and I am signed by the Clippers. A guy got beat and his man is going to the goal for an uncontested layup. DJs man was on the opposite block from where the drive was occurring. DJ could have easily stepped over and blocked or altered the layup but he stayed with his man and let him get a wide open layup.

DJ does this a lot in real life as well. Instead of altering the shot he is worried about his man and you can't do that. You have to help, once you help there is this thing called "Helping the Helper" the next guy is supposed to rotate over to your man.

Would you rather DJ step over and alter or block the shot ( a la Dwight Howard or Roy Hibbert ) or would you want him to stay with his man in hope for a miss and rebound?

He has had some bad lapses I just believe its not a horrible choke streak. He was pretty damn important in the Wiz win even last year it wasn't really being horrible in the regular season just Vinny having more faith in Odom.

I feel the D could be even worse if he had not improved a leap I think as a team Doc needs to continue to pound a defensive mindset into everyone.

Seems more often than not whenever he rotates a kick off happens. I rather he sticks to his man because most of the time the opposing C has a jumper.
