I'm saying it's not sustainable. Most nights his long 2's don't fall (just look at his avg's) and he's an overall detriment to the team.
As to his aggressiveness. It's largely as a result of his long 2's dropping that the lanes opened up for him. He starts by chucking, then he gets aggressive. But if the chucking turns into bricks, the lanes won't open up. So yeah, great, 12 FT's -- but he only had 12 FT's because his BAD LONG 2's went in. Still the same problem, just different result.
@Dr. Naismith Agreed. More importantly, he responded to what he was doing wrong and made the appropriate corrections. This is what makes a great player.
well DeMar went HAM shame I missed the game :/
But he does have to be more efficient and take better shots. Looking at his points there are still way too many long twos .

Long twos are not evil. Many of the long twos DD took tonite are what I would consider good shot selection. When he didnt have the shot he was quite willing to pass it, where as in the previous three games he would force the shot.
MLsE is up to something with all this "it's time to forgive" talk. Bell and rogers own tsn and sportsnet respectively and look at how alllllllllll of their contributors are talking, I believe in politics they refer to it as talking points....combine that with drakes VC lined jacket on drake night and I guarantee they're up to something. Book it!
Also good comeback, last time they did this against Dallas it led to some pretty good ball, so I'd say its safe to assume....nothing
The thing about long two is that if you're open for a long two, take it. I don't mind Demar taking long twos if he's open or is on fire. I'm only annoyed by Demar's long twos when there is like 10-12 seconds left in the shot clock and he jacks up a long two.
