    You can criticize Jennings offense all you want, but that's his strong suit.

    That's like pointing out the Elephant Man's jacket doesn't fit.

    He's a great shooter all of a sudden. Loved his aggressiveness. I'm a believer.

    He's always had great form... it was just a matter of time until he developed the confidence in his shot and a sense of the range of the NBA three-point distance (and got the two ballhogs out of the way).

    Agreed. The speed of the game is an adjustment, too.

    He seemed like he went up a level physically these last 10 days. He was better able to mix it up with guys.

    The dude had a different expression this game - like he was mad - bring that every game young fella! This team is f-n lazy when it comes to the little things.

    I watched KCPs highlights from the OKC game last night. Wow.

    Really hope he can provide a little more of that next season. He doesn't need to get 30 every night, but just bring that 3 point / slashing threat.

    Yes, that more than anything and then getting your energy level that borders on meanness.

    There are times that you just have to stand up for yourself to prove a point. When I saw KCP go right up to Markieff Morris and stare into his neck like that, I knew KCP had proved that he will never back down to a bully.

    I loved the comments from SVG:

    "Yeah, well. I don't know, guys can mouth off, I'm not sure maybe he knows what Markieff Morris has accomplished in the league that gets him to the point of mouthing off," Van Gundy said. "I don't like the mouthing off anyways. It seems like you should participate in a playoff game before you do."

    "But maybe not, maybe that's not the standard anymore."

    I love how SVG stood up for KCP like that. I have to say, the no-filter thing on the coach is a pretty entertaining thing.

    Yea, plus it was more than just sticking up for KCP. "play in a playoff game before you start talking trash". That was awesome. SVG laying down the smack talk!!!

    Especially considering it was a player from the Phoenix Suns he was talking about, the team that pissed away a playoff spot late last year by arguably lacking enough heart. Maybe Markieff should "checketh himself before he wrecketh himself".
