Why can't he D up like this during live ball situations?
Westbrook is the smallest guy there, but looks ready to fight.
I love that they had LeBrons back
You love to see your teammates sticking up for you. DJ, Russ, Melo, Rondo on the bench - all the guys were there.
Suspension all around
Maybe good as a body in practice. He's unplayable right now
Damn, that's bad. I feel like he's really trying out there, but he just can't bring it anymore. He does have good hands though - catches the ball and finishes those lobs very well.
+/-.... defensive rating... poor fit, or whatever else the complaint is, I'll give him credit for his 3rd Q play. No other big on our roster matched that level of sustained energy and effort all night.
DJ gets credit for last nights game. He hustled out there and tried.
It's not working. If Vogel wants to try someone at Center, might as well give Dwight a shot
He usually plays hard so I don't want to say anything bad about him. Obviously, the numbers are pretty bad, but I have a feeling he really gives us his best. It is what it is. Coaches are the ones who need to figure it out. It's not like DJ will suddenly turn into 27-year old version of himself.
Really good game tonight, if Frank is going to insist on playing him we have to hope for games like this.
Yeah I thought he played well tonight.
I think he gets too much hate in general. We need size down low if AD is going to chase outside and we have been getting killed on rebounds with AD at the 5. Plus he’s a great lob target with good hands and yeah he’s trying hard out there. Surprising to not see Dwight at all tonight.
9-6-2-2 while making all 4 baskets with good effort on D and the glass. Can't ask for much more.
I agree. He's one of the guys who actually tries hard.
Cut it out
Did he get yanked for something anyone picked up on or then have any words with Frank about it that the cameras picked up? He was there in the lineup and then poof he was gone with his a** benched.
I think Dwight was just playing so well that Frank wisely kept him in there. Jordan usually brings effort but just doesn't have it anymore IMO
He's done and shouldn't be playing unless it's garbage time.
It's been evident the whole season.
