Give the dude a break, i think he deserves a pass on his first game back from heart surgery, against the world champs, on the same floor where he last played 2 years ago. It's a pretty emotional situation.
If he was capable of playing great in the preseason then really all you're doing is giving him excuses.....it was as predictable as anything for him to go from a very promising preseason to an absolute dud where he looked like he did on the same floor 2years ago..awful
You did not just compare opening night, against last years best defense in the league, not to mention, on the opposite teams ring ceremony, to the (dang) preseason, against teams' benches.
Look, I know jumping to conclusions is fun and all, but that's all it is, a jump.
