    Default On the downside... JO's jumper?

    I liked it better when he posted up. I understand SVG's system does a good job of denying him position.

    But the jumper just wasn't working for him tonight. Not like he had many other options, but still.

    Luckily, though, the FTs were pretty durned good.

    He was hobbling a bit because of the hit he took in the Houston game.

    Yeah the jumpers were pretty bad. But he probably did not have any real lift
    Don't ask Marvin Harrison what he did during the bye week. "Batman never told where the Bat Cave is," he explained.

    Yeah, I'm still amazed that the knee is still bothering him from that hit. I hope it's not an ongoing problem.

    The only jumper I had issue with was the one he missed to take the lead late in the game. We need JO to nail that jumper to take the lead late!!

    He did, however, hit a big one late in OT.

    His free throws and the fouls he forced Shaq to make on him were together with Tinsleys leadership, drive and multiple cluthc plays, Reggie's clutch jumpers and Scots defence play the vital ingredients in this victory in my opinion. Freddie did some good things too, but also some ... lesser things. Certainly played better offensively than he did a few weeks ago.

    I never liked his jumper. Even when he's hitting, it seems to come off his hand crookedly. Doesn't have that pure, sweet stroke. But then how many dominant big guys do.
    Main problem is his tendancy to fall in love with it if it's falling. We NEED a post presence on the floor at all times.
    Hopefully Harrison develops into a consistant LP threat and then Jermaine can REALLY play the 4 spot.

    I'd like to see JO, and plenty of other players, use the backboard more on those short-mid (side-angle) jumpers.

    I agree with that.
