I just finished watching the game on DVR. The game didn't seem so bad after reading all of the game time comments here. The biggest reason for the loss was no defensive intensity to start the game and just a bad 3 point shooting night all around. Almost all of the misses (2-13) by Parsons, Harden, and Lin were wide open shots.
Harden actually looked for Jeremy quite a bit. I'm not worried at all about their chemistry. This is a young team that just needs some time together. They have a lot to learn and the only way that happens is through game experience and some tough losses. So, lets have some patience and don't panic just yet.
Jeremy really turned up the d in the 2nd half and ended up with 6 steals (now averaging 3.25 spg, 2nd in the NBA). His defense on one possession when he switched on to the 7 foot Galanari was amazing.
Jeremy's shot looked fine to me. He still seems a little hesitant but at least he's letting the 3's fly. He is shooting 93% from the line. That tells me his stroke is fine. He just needs to keep shooting.
My bigger concern is Jeremy not getting to the line. This is probably a combination of his injury (not having full explosiveness around the rim) and trying not to be as reckless to cut down on his turnovers. Not sure this is such a good thing. I was never too worried about his high turnover rate last season. Once he regains most of his explosiveness, I bet you'll see him being much more aggressive going to the basket.
