Can't go wrong with BJ/Ellis/Dunleavy

I went Ellis for icing it at the end, and having 0 turnovers.

Ellis and Jennings with nearly the same games, but Ellis clinched it late. So Ellis for me.

Dunleavy kept us in it early, Ellis made some huge shots late but Brandon was our rock the whole game.

This has been the most difficult POG vote of the year so far, went with Jennings for having the same stat line as Monta but not making those silly Monta mistakes we always see from Ellis.

I voted Jennings. His 4 steals took possessions away from an offense that was scoring almost at will. Ellis had some big buckets in the 4th. It's close but IMO Jennings.

Anyone got any campaigns going to get BJ into the allstar game? Probably a loooooooooong shot.

If we keep winning I think he gets in. No way if we are just around .500 or under

Yeah, Ellis for those last baskets. Those were the last counter punches we needed in a 15 round prizefight to hang on for the win, Jennings and Dunleavy also tremendous with important punches during the course of the game.

Dunleavy is like a coach on the floor. A veteran presence that he provides is invaluable. I'd give Ellis POTG, with Dunleavy a close 2nd. Dunleavy carried us in the 1st half.

Jennings ran the game well, Monta made some huge shots they were still Monta shots. I know people will think I'm hating but hitting 30% shots are nice but they are still not good shots. We are just going to have to ride the variance with him I guess. Dunleavy was his usual self, Fatty was good after his awful defensive first quarter. Ersan tried his best to find his way into the game, Udoh made two defensive mistakes which was weird. Larry made two great defensive plays late but was a bit out of control trying to block shots he was never going to get to. Very good win against a team that hit a lot of shots.

Really a tossup between Jennings & Monta, but I'm gonna go with Monta since he hit some clutch shots down the stretch and was outstanding making plays from the SG position.

Went Monta because he hit the ice free throws while Jennings missed one. That was the tiebreaker for me.

Went Monta because he was great in the 4th but Brandon played extremely well again. Monta for me just edged him out by the slightest of margins.

And I know it's been mentioned before but wow, watching this game made me realize just how easily Monta can get into the lane. He practically got in there at will when he wanted to. Why he settles for long twos is beyond me.

I think Jennings will be a shoo-in for the ASG with Rose sidelined.

Brandon with another great game,has really improved again this year but still needs to hit consistently from deep.

Monta. He closed the game out.
