Bloated shooting percentge

JJ's 5-8 shooting meant nothing because he didn't really have any positive effect on this game. JJ sucks for most of the game and will hit 3 or 4 shots in a row to pull his percentage up.

not denying what you are saying is wrong.

my comment was just saying : "you sure you want to be saying that? think what you are saying about the Hawks defense."

Too bad I own him in one fantasy team, and playing against him in another.

WTF are you talking about? They were down 14 and pulled within 2. Just because they didn't win doesn't mean the points didn't count.

Last game he hit two consecutive 3s at the end of the game to pull within 1 of Detroit.

Did you watch the game? JJ was nowhere to be found almost the entire game. Running in to take a few shots late in the second half doesn't overshadow the fact that he was often nowhere to be found when the Hawks needed a basket.

Nobody is going to be on all the time. Everyone has off nights. But he had 2 very strong games against two title contenders to start the season and you give him no credit but are quick to point out his off night.

There were times when he really needed to take a shot or try to score and he simply kept passing the ball. It drove me nuts.

Tontoz why do you insist on arguing with Uncle Ruckus? He isn't a Hawks fan and probably never lived in Atlanta ever so just ignore his azz

i'm not a big fan of Joe Johnson either. I only flicked to the game a few times last night but i did watch alot of their first game. His shot selection is awful sometimes and its like he looks more for himself than the team.

so is Horford going to the bench once Pachulia comes back? it seems like they really are limiting the rookie.

Funny because uncle ruckus was just criticizing JJ for passing instead of shooting.

No idea whether or not Zaza will start but they aren't limiting Horford at all. On offense he is limiting himself.
