Hes playing much better - I dont think theres any doubt to that. And thank goodness, because he needs to be if this team is to go anywhere.
Gotcha.

I think the difference between how he's looked over the last 3 games when compared to the rest of the year is night and day. He looks quicker, more deliberate, and he's making the kind of plays that have earned him his reputation of a premier playmaker.

My main concern is that this is the same kind of thing we saw last year. He can't make a habit of being awful for 85% of the regular season and then "figuring it out" leading up to the playoffs.
