I know I am in the minority here but I have been pleased with the improvement that Matt has shown this season. CWC has decided, of late, to put Matt in as a starter but he is actually averaging less minutes per game. While still slow afoot, his hands seem quicker and has had some noticeable deflections that have turned into teammates securing a turnover. His long-range shooting beyond the arc is the best on the team.
Here are the key stats so far this year vs. last year:
Agree that his positives particularly, shooting, have canceled out his negatives... concerned that he maybe a little to mechanical passing in PO... that's why I liked his mid range jumper & his roll to the hoop in Q game which resulted in 2 made Ft's... agree he knows & executes the D rotations well enough not to be a liability... think the minutes are about right
Before the Q game when a combination of foul trouble and CBC's getting JF more minutes, which resulted in only 15 mins for MH, in the 3 games before that one, his minutes were considerably higher than 18, with the highest being 31 vs Albany.
