Remember that it was the playoffs, not the regular season. Completely different animal. For the most part, he was sound defensively, and was not an offensive liability. As he got more comfortable as the games went on, he got more and more physical and lost his innocence. From the 2nd half of the Washington series, into the NJ series, you could see how different and how much better he was playing. And I'm not even looking at his stat line from that time period. Just watching him play, he was playing much better.
