huffing and puffing, baron played well
haters will hate.
Davis is good. Lin is better for 35 minutes a night. End of story.
He's not even 33 yet so hardly at the very end of his career. You're right about it being an ask for him to remain healthy but he can do it. He was healthy during his stint with the Cavs last year and improved their record substantially making them look like a better team. Lin's done well but he is still learning. We just beat the bucks for the first time this year. This was also Davis' first start of the year. The 2 players he guarded at times shot terribly. Jenkins 0-7 3's, Ellis 2-14 FG's. Defence won us the game and Davis contributed significantly to that. If he does remain healthy, he can only improve this team.
My point is that several or even many fans have been vocal about how Jeremy is no good, or marginal, or over rated, turns the ball over too much, etc. But this game shows why Jeremy is clearly the better option to start ahead of Baron. At this point in his career Baron simply can't bring it for 4 quarters anymore. He was fine at the beginning of the game but really dropped off in the second half. He had no penetration, little to no ball movement, and bricks from the outside, not to mention the 9 turnovers. Baron would be much more effective coming off the bench like he had been before tonight.
Im surprised we won this game without Jeffries, Stat and Lin. The refs gave us 17 more free throw attempts (Knicks 35, Bucks 18). We hit 30 of them, the Bucks only hit 12. Thats where this game was won
Baron can come in when Lin struggles.... at the end of the day both have flaws
Lin still needs to learn how to not tumble over to the floor & Baron needs to continue working on getting back 100% so we just have to live with what we have and continue to go with what works
