Jose was about perfect in the first game, as far as what I want to see out of him. The other night he made Marcus Williams look like an All-Star, and I just don't get that.
As far as the defense goes, it has to be about everyone playing their part and making their rotations. If you have a guy like Bargnani
reacting so poorly, and not getting anything in terms of positioning, then it's not going to work. I liked the charge he got on Gasol, but even there he looked a little slow. I'm hoping that he's still getting his conditioning together and that it's not going to be a consistent problem, or I'm going to have little interest in watching that.
Is he being held accountable or treated with kid gloves? If it's not the former, then my optimism is entirely misplaced.
