DerMarr Johnson received 21 minutes against the Kings.

3-8 from the field including 0-4 from beyond the arc.

5 reb
2 assists
1 steal
6 points.

His shot looked off and short which leads me to believe his legs are not under him yet.

He had a couple flashes, the dish to Melo and taking the ball to the hole for an easy dunk.

Kid still needs more consistancy.

Thoughts? Will he improve? Should he get the minutes to do it?

He did seem to pester Peja on Defense a few times with his length.

i have been on DJ's band wagon since his first pre season game, he is a great team mate, and i feel jeff (i am a moron) Bzdelik should have played the kid a lot more.

he causes a lot of people problems on defense because he is so long and also he has pretty quick feet.

his shot will come also it will just take a few games

DerMarr Johnson reminds me of Jalen Rose both very tall for their position. I believe Johnson could grow in to a Jalen Rose type player given the opportunity. SO yeah give him the minutes.
