Default Jefferson's D is looking really good

I was suprised by how well he played defense against Phoenix and LA. Especially against Pau. He was contesting everything extremely well, and really seemed to bother him. His defensive rotations still aren't that great, but with how well he's playin one on one, I expect his team D to improve too. I'm really impressed by how well he's playing.

Default Re: Jefferson's D is looking really good

When he's at the top of the key and looking to pass he needs to make those decisions quicker. It looks like he's to scared to turn it over to make the quick passes.

Anyhow I've liked his defense also.

But more then anything I like the fact he can't create his own offense and score at will whether Deron's on the floor or not.

Think about it, This guy shot near 50% facing all double teams and triple teams like a season ago and still averaged 23 ppg, so playing in single coverage is just too easy for him

He is a bit of a ball stopper, but I don't really have a problem with it as long as he passes out of doubles and keeps scoring as well as he does. I don't really expect him to be a good passer.
However, I don't like Millsap shooting all those jumpers. He was fine last year when he took them when they were sure things, but I don't like him playing out on the perimeter. Hopefully he stops once D-Will is back, you can tell it really hurts his offense when Deron is out.
