Damn, how about Al Harrington? Every time he gets the ball, he is making it. Hitting that open three, driving to the lane, posting up on someone. He has been awesome, and for those of you who are complaining about Dunleavy going off, look at Harrington.

Completely agree with BD, AZ, and Al. And Harrington’s just been a beast.

On a completely different note, this is just an observation, but doesn’t B-Wright run like Neon Deion (aka Primetime)? I didn’t think anyone else would have that style.

Those three are definately the best performing three so far. Pietrus has been pretty solid and consistent, Monta looks like he is coming back to last season's form and Barnes has been pretty good lately also. Biedrins has alos been looking a bit better but he is the one that I expected a bit more from, maybe I'm expecting too much but he was very good in the Euro championships

In terms of individual performances, the W's are doing fine (with the exception of FT's). What is the other huge problem is team defense (including rotating over to open 3pt shooters). We need to improve our D, which is an area Jax can contribute in once he gets back.

FTs are still a demon for the team and one they must really overcome once and for all. They are "free" throws, it should not be that hard

thats why i dont like sticking with the zone for so long. thats the only defense we are running while barnes is in. given, its the only defense he's successful in...doesnt mean we should stick with it. stick with the zone for too long and teams wil find a way to break it. celveland put in two three point shooters (jones and gibson). gibson tore us up every time down. dallas is a good shooting team. am i suprised that terry and dirk beat us with stack twisting the dagger? hell no im not. dont get me wrong...the zone works...but only for so long.
