this article by A. Sherrod Blakely of CSNNE is spot on IMO. this can be a huge weapon for the C's.

Last night in the first quarter, when JR checked in I'm screaming at my tv "Doc put Courtney in the game!" That's the reason Terry started IMO is to be able to bring Lee off the bench and face JR.

I really hope we don't trade either one of these guys

i luv them both

nothing like bad arse deffense to put a smile in my face.
yes Rondo and those two will probably make other team guards cry all day long.
They still have to cover 3s a little closer theyre fast enought to do that.

PP better keep jumping on 3s like yesterday, that was another remark for me and another smile in my face.

Lee deserves a ton of credit for the way he's played for a little while now.

He's gotten out of his funk which couldn't be easy with trade (albeit soft) rumors and the return of AB.

He just seems so focused on team play right now, just seems like he's shutting out the noise

agreed, so many have focused on his offense, or lack thereof, but his calling card is D, he's not the ideal spot up corner 3 shooter, though he can hit those shots. he's got a pretty good midrange game and is athletic enough to get to the hoop and get out in transition. Keep playing that D and he earns his pay IMO.

Lee needs to play more, don't know why Doc is playing him so little particularly with Terry's shot not falling.

I'll admit i like lee's defense lately. him and AB help us big time on the perimeter. Hope he keeps it up. he may not be traded now. we will see.

I think it'd be a mistake to trade him for lesser value.

The guy has shot threes well his whole career.  It'd be foolish to give up on a bad streak.

To me that's all he is doing wrong.

And he's shooting over 41% from 3s since December.

He's definitely fitting in better now that the team has renewed its defensive intensity and upped its pace as a result. 

Lee/Bradley is a workable tandem as long as Pierce is available as a shot-creator and the opponent doesn't have a good press guard.

Ah I wasn't aware of that, though I could see improvement.

This is where he should be.

Lee is bringing up the ball anyways for the 2nd unit, so having Bradley or Terry in there won't make much of difference one way or another.

There aren't many guards who get playing time that adequately pressure PGs, and considering that Lee is a SG, it's questionable if they'll put their PG defender on him.

Not going to do the math again, but prior to yesterday's game, he was shooting over 50% from the field during that span, helping improve his season to 47.5% which is a career high so far for him.

He's been playing great for us for a while now, and it's a bit of a travesty that Doc has been limiting him this much, particularly when you consider he's our best defender on our bench.

Lee has done a nice job playing through slump.  We have started season with Lee, Terry, Bass and Green being in slumps or inconsistent.  What I really like is when we are playing well there isn't much of a let up when 2nd unit guys like Lee, Green, Sully and Terry come in.  If we start playing as well as we can as a team you could see regular season minutes for kg, pp, rondo and terry kept in control.  Maybe sully and bass aren't starter material compared to the best pf in game but those 2 don't give much of a let up for opposing players.
