He got another pass later on in the third where he had a decent lead, but the defender got back and stopped him from even getting a scoring chance.

Most of where I feel he played poorly was on decision making and confidence, not necessarily with effort, which is why I'm not opposed to having him continue to play. He can still do a lot more; I just think that we're used to seeing him play worse that the bar's been lowered a bit.

Hopefully that makes more sense, whether or not you agree Maybe there are things I missed, as well.
