I didn’t say Jacobson played well, I said he played better than Lard. That’s the context of this whole discussion. Lard didn’t play well in Lawrence because he played so badly he fouled out. Being “nothing more than a body” is far better defense than fouling out in 6 minutes. You can’t play defense from the bench, and fouling the other team is rarely good. There’s nothing that supports that Lard is infinitely better on defense than Jacobson, other than blocks, which is a very poor metric of defensive quality.
