    Did you not see him have very good rotations and defensive positioning? LMFAO. Stop it. You have plenty to comment on a good Jalen game tonight. You don't need to blatantly lie.

    Unless you mean by 'good rotations and defensive positioning' - that he is the only one who constantly messes up a switch, then sure. Seriously, it doesn't take much to discredit what you just said. All it takes is watching Jalen on defense. You should try it some time.

    His homers are insufferable when it comes to him on the defensive end.

    His homers?

    Man you really lack basic self awareness.

    Coach specifically called out Jalens great attention on the defensive side in the post game presser.

    As long as Jalen can keep shooting 50% from 3 he will be good....

    ...or maybe this was the hot 3 game stretch we needed to move him?

    Im not a Jalen homer, im more optimistic than most but i follow him around the court a lot when i watch the games. He had very good rotations tonight and solid defense.

    Idc if you believe me tho, Udoka literally said it in the post game interview lol

    Jalen outplayed Cunningham, Ivey, and Bogdanovic--for anyone keeping track . . .

    I think u ride it out this year with Jalen unless we receive a monster offer. He deserves the full year with Ime. If he can string together a good second half we’ll see that reflected in our win #’s. If not, at least we know who he is, and it will be a much easier decision what to do with him this offseason. I’d still like to add shooting and a backup center at the deadline, but we should be able to make those moves without giving up Jalen.

    Paired with Senguns last 6 games and it shows you how great this duo "could" be.

    Just need much more consistency from Jalen obviously.

    Jalen is streaky. All we have to do is start coaching up the good and coaching out the lows. I consider this season his first true rookie season. Last two seasons were glorified G-league.

    I agree with the first sentence, just not the rest.

    He shoulders just as much blame as the poor environmemt he was in.

    He has improved every year, just not at the one place all the fans want, which is shooting efficiency.

    His efficiency hasnt changed much since entering the league but everything else has improved.

    How dare you not post his TS%, that's the Holy Grail for the anti-Green club members
    so up you have to post that with the good/bad stretch of games

    He also has to perform like this for 11-12 more games to crack the magnanimous 14/15 game stretch tier that the anti-Green club holds in high regards as well

    Do it in the generic Jalen Green voice.

    The mumble voice diss is already on the list of the anti-Green club, the voice thing is played out

    Think of something new, outside the (voice) box
