Morris keeps getting better with consistent minutes, hopefully he doesn't get buried at the end of the bench when Nash comes back, his defense and athleticism is needed.

The crazy thing he is only 21 and still can be way better than he is now!

How in the world will Morris not get the backup PG spot after his impressive performance lately? I am so gonna shoot MDT if he plays Blake over him when we are already lacking in defense.

Dallas Mavs had Jose Barea coming off the bench and Tyson Chandler being a defensive Anchor where what they need to push them into the playoffs they've had the same players for a while but they needed that inside presence and somebody changing the dynamic coming off the bench

Just so you know, Barea was nearly 27 when he won it, and Chandler 28. They weren't young...and to be honest, Dallas didn't need Barea...he gave up more points than he scored and was a horrible defensive player, and defense was the reason Dallas won it all.

-----------

Anyway, relating to the topic, Morris is better in ISO, and if he continues to pass the ball like he did this one game (ONE game), he will be a more productive player. But, his jump-passes will get him in as much trouble as they did in college...you can't keep attempting jump-passes to trailing players behind you if you're in traffic, and if it wasn't for Howard leaking to the rim, one of those (the one that I saw) would have been picked off, initiating the fast break (I didn't get to see the whole game, I was watching others on League Pass...but DVR'ed the Lakers game for tomorrow morning).

However, Blake is going to space the floor more, so you're going to see him getting that backup role in D'Antoni's system, at least for a while, and rightfully so.

Morris did good tonight, but Blake SHOULD get first crack at the backup spot. For those who think Blake is absolute trash and Morris is hands down the better player, Morris should have no problem retaking the backup spot when Blake comes back right?

Morris was 2/3 from 3 tonight and he had 6 assists his last game and you still put Blake over Morris.... Right now your a hater point blank period while everybody gives him props you throw dirt on the lil compliment you give him(even if you consider it one)

This offense fits Morris' strengths more than Duhon or Blake. That doesn't mean he's got the job...just that he has more potential to succeed in this offense than the others.
