Seeing DD fight for position and get a good bounce is encouraging. Is he free from any criticism? Absolutely not. Still, it's encouraging. End of the day, he can contribute and we need this team to be confident going into playoffs. So, I'm happy by some of the hustle he's showing lately. It's encouraging.

FWIW, I believe DD's PPG was higher in 2nd half of last season than in first. Hopefully it's a trend we can use here.
Agreed with what you've said. Still not impressed with tonight's performance and I'm not going to act like he did.
