1 bad game and he is trade bait, one good game and the VC of 2000-2001 is back for good.

VC has had many good games this year. He will have many more good games.

I'm just glad he broke his streak of so-so games, finally. I don't expect him to drop 30 a night, but I think now he has his confidence back, and he will do his best to carry our team to the ASG weekend.

Vince looked good against the Pistons. Like he did to start the season.

What impressed me was his effort on D and the nice offensive rebound he got at the end of regulation. Those blocked shots on D were sweet. VC can be a very good help defender, he just isn't a good 'on the ball' defender against quick guys. Raps should give VC a soft defensive assignment and let him roam on help D more.

Did anyone notice the crowd starting to boo Vince when the lead slipped away and he was relying on outside jumpers. I swear the crowd groaned as he put up one jumper from the top of the circle instead of driving.

After that VC drove into the lane and finished two nice buckets that gave us a chance to tie it with his 3 pointer.

The big advantage the Pistons had in overtime was that Hamilton took almost every possession into the paint for relatively easy looks, while VC settled for difficult shots (that he usually makes in the crunch). Percentages will usually favour the team with the easier looks.

I heard the groan too....Vince took a jump shot and there was definately a collective "oh man, not again" type sound from the croud.

I have never left the Vince bandwagon. :D

Kidding aside, I have always said that Vince is a better defender than most people want to say. He can be a very good as a help defender. It is always easier to be a good defender when you have a PAINT PROTECTER. And IMHO, he has the sweetest "J" and he can drive to the bucket with the best of them = rare, rare to be both a great shooter and a scorer.

Kids thread.

WTF, it wasnt Vince suddenly went back to where he was, it had a lot to do with the opposing team style of play.

And Popeye Jones had a career night with 28 rebounds one time, and another time with 25 points.

By point is that was just ONE game. When Vince goes hot for a streak of 10 games, then he is back, and until then its just one game luck.

If you watched the game, you'd know that Vince played like dynamite. When Vince plays like that, the opposing team's style of play is irrelevant. He does what he wants, when he wants to, and how he wants to. That's what I saw yesterday, and I'm looking forward to seeing it again and again this season.

until he can consistantly play with this kind of enthusiasm (when was the last time you saw him playing with that kind of emotion), i'm still gonna doubt his real passion for the game nowadays.
