But is Gordo our most consistent productive player?

I know it's only been 10 1/2 games and a small sample size, but geez - he just produces in such a consistent way quarter by quarter, game by game.

i havent watched this game, but in what I've seen, its that he makes it look so effortless. always at his own pace, never looks rushed, just smooth.

Regardless of how he is handled I'm not sure Barrett will ever be much more than just a "meh" player.

He just has far too many holes in his game for my liking.

Hornets lead the league in assists and are a top 10 defense and play a great zone. Who saw that coming?

Jackson had those "purple patches" in some games (every now and then) when he would have a 10min period or so where he would just go nuts and be hitting shots all over the place - but prior to that 10mins he'd be kinda ordinary and after that 10mins even worse (because his confidence would be high) but at the end of the game, because of that 10mins his stat line would look healthy with 20+points.

But Gordo just does his thing every game, every quarter, most every time he has the ball. He just quietly and effectively accumulates stats and impacts games in a positive way.

I'm glad you mentioned Jack because I was just thinking a couple days ago that Gordon kinda makes me think about what Jack would've been if he was focused on being an efficient scorer and was more steady than streaky.

We've done an exceptional job at limiting the opponents best player this season. Doncic, Trae Young (twice), and now Randle.

Yeah that guys done something behind the scenes, and all we can do is speculate.

Personally I've never liked his game, but sheesh.

What a weird game. Hard to see a way that team has won 5 games this season, just no shooting and felt like their offense was super slow and boring. Did not think we played all that well for most of the game and we looked sloppy for long stretches.

I know they were missing a few guys, but even just the beginning of the game was like watching an overmatched division 2 team who was just settling for long jumpers even though they aren't good shooters. Barrett especially just looked exhausted every time he touched the ball, was expecting Randle to be a bigger factor but even he seemed super disinterested.

Graham looked like his old self tonight. Still has not had a game where he is just lights out shooting, but I think it is coming. Tonight is the type of game LaMelo will have sometimes where he can't get his scoring going, but he is still going to always impact the game in so many ways.

PJ looked really good tonight, came out aggressive and thought he just played a really good game without worrying about the box score.

Gordo showing everyone why you spend up to get a player in his tier and not go the cheaper route of Bogdanovic, Gallo or Grant. He just has a better skill set and he impacts the game so much.
