Fox doesn’t get enough hate for how bad and lazy his defense is. Fastest dude in the leauge just getting beat off straight line drives and doesn’t even try to recover. Really disappointed in him lately. So much so that I’m wondering if he’s injured.

He did take a lot of dirty “screens” during his hot streak. I doubt he is that hurt though. He needs to add more strength.

Not defending Fox since he’s part of the problem on defense too, but I think that was mostly him trying to avoid picking up his 3rd foul
