I have tried to defend Nixon most of the year. I must admit, his second half last night was not good. I actually thought he played a decent first half, with one huge exception, shooting and shot selection. I thought he defended and rebounded well. Second half, he just came off the rails. On occasion, being a primary ball handler, he gets stuck hoisting up a bad shot to beat the clock. Once last night he forced a bad shot when nobody was moving to provide him a passing lane. You could see he was frustrated over it. But, that said, I think we are better when he sits. He needs to just play defense, rebound and not turn it over. Do not shoot unless a layup or a desperation shot to beat the buzzer. Takes too many bad shots.
