    JV gets a lot of shit for that head fake
    I know, I could never understand that. He should keep using it, he just also needs to take the jumper sometimes.

    I think he's only comfortable shooting if he's WIDE open. Any time the defender is near him he wants too badly for the guy to bite to give him space to drive so he doesn't have to take a contested jumper. It's like he wants to do the right thing (get what he thinks is a better shot), but he tries too hard and forces it.

    If you guys aren't watching the American feed, I strongly suggest you find a stream to switch to. Most refreshing bball I've watched in a long time. Even keel, unbiased, funny from time to time. And strangely enough...insightful.

    Nice for a change.

    Rudy got blocked 3 times in 17 minutes. Pretty cool.

    The thing about DeMar is that he's far less often a ball-stopping flow-killer like Gay. He can be. But he can also be used well in team schemes. Gay is like allergic to following an offensive plan.
    This is very true! Demar just plays smarter as well. He takes bad shots at times but he definitely takes way less than Rudy and as Leo said he's more crafty. Rudy makes up his mind what he's going to do before he does it. That's a mistake rookies make not someone whose been in the league for 8 years.

    The difference between bad shot and good one is if it goes in

    Dd still takes a lot of bad shots

    Very true. It makess sense. Gay basically hasn't changed his game since entering the league.

    He's not used to getting so many minutes in one half.

    Denver's bench is outscoring ours 27-6 or something like that.

    Why ref doesn't call any fouls when JV is doing jump hook move/shot? Bump = foul isn't?

    I have no clue. I mentioned eariler how it seems like Jonas is getting a worse whistle than when he was as a rookie. It's truly odd.

    Why do they talk about everything except the Raptors in the half time show?

    Because the raps are shit and there is nothing to talk about. It's the same old thing every year and every game. *Sigh*

    I just switched. Should have done it earlier when Matt was talking about Rudy banning stat sheets as a good team leader move.
