    Iso Joe should be at the end of the bench. I only want to see him in garbage time.

    It's obvious MDA trust JJ more than anyone on the team currently other than Harden and CP3. He's been playing significant minutes. Wonder if it will continue when Gordon returns.

    Good to see him getting minutes. We need to see if he is going to mesh or not. Let's see if he has anything left in the tank.

    His minutes will be reduced when Gordon returns for sure.

    But I’m hoping that he’s going to play him like he plays Nene. I hope Green gets the minutes tomorrow.

    Joe Johnson was fine besides a bad stretch with like 5 minutes left where he turned it over a few times and had some bad fouls. His minutes should've been split with Gerald though. They could've gotten about 14 minutes each.

    All i know is JJ got dem clutch free throws at the end. Solid. Shame that GG didn't get any playing time, but hate the coach not the player.

    You have green who has been absolutely on fire ... And he can't even get or ahead of this 36 year old ... Who "might" be nice for us to have.

    Even if JJ is playing great . He shouldn't get minutes over . James , Chris , Eric , Trevor , PJ , or Luc . i don't like that we are benching Green to give him a tryout .

    Green earned his ****ing spot . And JJ gets to waltz in and take it on reputation .

    MDA just tries to incorporate him into the team. He can be a big weapon coming playoff time.

    Watching us begin to use Joe on the block made me so happy. When the playoffs roll around that is going to be a nice option to have.

    I love how fans are so confident they know so much more than NBA coaches.

    Gerald Green makes threez, therefore there's nothing else he's doing poorly.

    Still shocked at how so many coaches keep refusing to play KJ.

    JJ shouldn't have been in to end the game when defense should have been enough to ice the game. Not sure why some hate him though, he did some good stuff out there.

    Joe in the post was pretty fantastic too. He was backing down a Power Forward and passing from the post. Another dynamic MDA can add to the arsenal.

    I think Green is better right now with his athleticism, ability to shoot off the dribble, but I think Joe adds more to the team with shooting, ability to guard forwards, and post offense.

    Let Joe get his feet wet.

    I never thought KJ earned his minutes. Gerald has. Joe and Gerald could've easily split those 29 minutes. 15 for Joe and 14 for Gerald.

    Guys, we know what Green has to offer us already. He doesn't need additional game time to figure out his chemistry with our team. He has basically done the same thing from day 1 signing. JJ we signed because we believe he could help us in the playoffs. Why wouldn't we be playing him over Green?

    Why couldn't they just split those minutes? 29 is a lot. Gerald lit up the Nuggets the last time we played them.

    Again, we are thinking long term here. What is the benefit of playing GG? Win by more points? What is that in comparison to giving JJ as much minutes as possible in a crash course on team chemistry, which would pay dividends in the playoffs. JJ has already done some pretty great things for us in each game and in general, has improved immensely. We need him to quickly figure out how he is going to fit into our team in those key moments against actual competition.

    He's playing a ton right now but I think that's to get him ready for the post season. That's the only thing that makes sense when you consider the lack of pt he had all year and I like it. Gotta find out now if/how he fits before **** gets real.
