Are you hopeful that backcourt will break out?
“Of course, I am hopeful. Kirk, I don't get too concerned about his shooting right now because number one, he is a rookie, number two, it is late in the season. He does so much for us. He is all over the place guarding. Last night he was guarding 4 or 5 guys on the same possession, being active and helping. He is our best defensive player. He brings so much energy, I don't get too concerned about him.”
This is in essence why Skiles and Paxson for that matter are so high on Kirk and not on Jamal. Kirk can have a bad shooting night and still have an enormous effect on the game. When the shot is not there for Jamal everything else suffers. Question is can Jamal improve on that or is this mostly a matter of style of play differences between the two?
