We’ve lost some long offensive rebounds and some 50/50 balls. Perhaps it’s just standard deviation.

So… Long, long time lurker here (from back in the ziller days of the old site). Planning to be more engaged this season, but had you told me Harrison Barnes would be starting the season like this and outperforming everyone else… I’d have thought something had gone drastically wrong. Definitely not on my bingo card today.

I don’t think it’s entirely his fault. I think the emphasis on physical defense is taking the lift out of his legs on offense. But even though he’s trying hard on defense, he’s simply not a good defensive player. So he’s sacrificing his offense for essentially nothing. It doesn’t help his shot is just not falling, either. Under normal circumstances it’s just a slump he could work through, but he’s got a microscope on him rn. That creates a psychological effect, and suddenly he’s getting beat on D, shots aren’t falling, confidence drops, rinse and repeat. Something’s gotta break the cycle. Maybe getting benched might take the heat off so he can sort it out.

Won’t be starting 0-4 this season. Nice solid win. I’d give Huerter one more start. If he can’t turn it around give Duarte the start. Barnes was unconscious tonight. May end up his best game this season. Can’t afford our 2 guard to put up measly numbers. As a group they did great.
