After we went as far as to say we may have been wrong about Jimmer, the giant-jawed dynamo has hit a three game cold streak. In his last three outings Jimmer has shot 7-24… ouch, and 2-12 from 3-land. Yikes. When your claim to fame–in lieu of your dismal D and tendency to match assists with turnovers–is your shot, these numbers aren’t going to keep you on the court long, and his recent minutes are a reflection. Today against Orlando, Jimmer logged only 14 minutes, and most notably sat out at the end of the game when the team was in desperate need of a few three point buckets.
We might venture to guess that Paul Westphal probably loved Jimmer as much as he hated DeMarcus Cousins. In regards to Kieth Smart, this might not hold true. This could be a critical juncture for fidgety Fredette fans. We’ll keep an eye one it. Your boy might be fizzling out of favor.
