    Can't say I've watched alot of him in his career, but he looks like a bonafide all star in this series. Completely shutting Harden down and also seems to always make the hustle play. I only remember him being drafted by the Clippers, why did they let him go again?

    He was traded by LAC to NOP in the Chris Paul trade. New Orleans let him go, signed a minimum deal with Dallas in the offseason.

    Scrubs always play well against us, j/k. I have always like his game because of his length and athletic ability. He is just inconsistent. But he was on my wish list for his defense.

    He's a huge liability because he can't shoot and is generally dumb. He looks good when he shoots 3s at 40% and doesn't have to think on defense.

    I wouldn't really say he has locked down Harden, but he always plays awesome against us

    He is not very good. It's weird seeing him so effective.

    Flukes happen.

    He was a 5 star recruit out of HS. Pretty big player for Wake Forest in college, but he's never really produced like this in the NBA.

    I always thought he was a quality player on the Dallas team. Not sure why he was bounced to Dallas as a 5th seed. The kid has some serious hops. He does need to shoot a little better though. I see him develop into a defensive specialist.

    Only guy on the Mavs I respect. Not the most skilled player but works hard and doesn't try to cheat his opponent

    We should sign him away from Dallas. Mavericks fans absolutely love him right now.

    I hope Cuban tries to go for the big names again and fails to sign them and him back. Repeat of the last couple of years :)
