Maybe it is just me but Barton seems to playing like a guy about to be traded.
It was a hard game to watch, especially after the 1st quarter it just seemed like we lost focus until the last 8 minutes or so of the game. It felt like we were just toying with them the whole time.
Agreed about Barton, he's gotta know his name is being bantered around. And while Fournier is as much of an iso player, at least it feels like he's more efficient than Barton, less hero-ball
Fournier as the 6th man makes some sense, he is a better scorer than Barton, but not even the defender that BArton is. Yet I see people talk about how we need him to start at SG, which is a huge mistake if you ask me.
Well, I can agree with Fournier as a 6th man, but only when Harris or Morris gets healthy. Until then (presuming Barton is part of that trade), Fournier has the scoring and experience that would fill an immediate need. Putting him on the bench would help make it more of an offensive threat, something we could use going forward.
Speaking of the bench, I did like the performance Zeke gave, he's coming right along IMO
