Brandon for the offense, Larry for his defense.

I voted Larry as his energy carried the team and ignited the BC in the 4th quarter

Yo, you guys gushing over Larry. Did you watch the first 3 quarters when Gortat was handing him his lunch?

Baddy gets the nod tonight.

Yeah Larry played pretty sub-par in the first half, really no one has a case besides Brandon.

John Henson does damage in limited minutes. Larry Sanders was an animal in the 4th, but half his rebounds were due to his own crappy offense. Jennings was a steady hand all game. I'm going with Jennings.

Larry's defense was awful, I honestly have no idea what people are watching at least half the time. He was pretty much the reason we were getting lit up early, the D didn't steady at all until Udoh came in for him. Gortat had his way with Larry.

It's the Camby rule : spectacular blocks = stellar defense.

No doubt Larry came out sluggish, but Gortat/Scola are average to above average offensive players in my opinion. Suns were really pounding it inside early.

Yup. Larry's been incredible but tonight wasn't a good night.

I'll admit in the first half his D was poor, but he came out in the second half like a different player and was altering shots left and right (which he does very often) and set the tone for us on D. He wasn't POTG tonight, but to say his defense was awful and it only looks good because of his blocks, is just plain wrong.

BJ3 for sure.

On a side not, FREE HENSON. He needs way more minutes. It's kind of making me sad about Ilyasova- much as I like him, it seems like he'll need to go in order for Henson to ever get proper minutes. His contract is too big now to be the lovable role player who hits amazing clutch threes... :/

Totally agree with this. Suns were only down three going into the 4th and Larry really stepped it up when they needed it.

I voted Henson but I know it's BJ. Looking at his last 4 games Henson has 48 boards in 95 minutes...........

:lol: I just love the guy's enthusiasm. I expect him to make some mistakes, he was/is very raw and its his first time seeing a lot of these guys / teams.

He was having some trouble early on in the pick and roll because he was making some bad decisions in pick and roll defense when he was getting left in those temporary 2 on 1 situations that are so common in our defense when Jennings gets left trailing the ball handler.

They cleaned that up after Larry came back in though, so good job Boylan or whoever coached him up.

Aside from that he probably saved us 20 points between the blocks and alters, so I'm not really that concerned about it as long as he continues to work and get better and learn.

He'll always be a great rebounder just because of his ridiculous length. Guy can grab a rebound from the top of the shotclock :lol:

Larry always seems to have a bit of trouble with the bigs who can step out and shoot the jumper. His default setting right now is to protect the rim and go for the block which often results in him leaving guys open for mid range jumpers. Gotta clean that up, but he's only getting better.

Oh and I went Jennings.

Probably because Henson logged most of his minutes at the end of the game 8-)
