No one that bashed him in the previous game thread deserves to celebrate the win today.

As for J-Rich, I am really surprised with his defense. He and DFS should definetely be the starting and finishing the game with Luka/KP.

If the sample size was big enough to declare THJ the worst player that should be traded asap it is big enough to declare him the 2nd or 3rd best player of the early season after tonights game. The numbers certainly back it up.
You point out THJs streaky shooting but what about DFS and Richardson. So far we have:
THJ 17/4/2 45.2% FG 40.7% from 3, -4.1 on/off
Richardson 14/3/2 42.5% FG 32.6% from 3, -10.3 on/off
DFS 9/5/1 41.5% FG 28.6% from 3, +4 on/off
But THJ is the problem?
I agree that both are way better on defense and once they start to hit at least league average percentages from 3 both are great fits next to Luka but right now (especially without KP) the Mavs desperately need more shooting next to Luka. That´s why THJ closed the game. Everytime the Rockets closed the gap he made a big shot.
For some reason people are in love with Richardson (maybe because fans missed a really good defender) but so far THJ is clearly the better shot creator, shooter and even passer.
