Jimmer Heats Up In New York

I’m not jumping on the Jimmer fanatics bandwagon but I am very proud of what he did today in New York against the Knicks in Madison Square Garden.  Jimmer was a great scorer in college at BYU but his game hasn’t really transitioned to the NBA very well.  The reason for his up and down performances could be from multiple reasons.  He has shown glimpses of his college shooting days in a Kings uniform this season but has been very inconsistent in his play on the court.  One thing he has shown this season is that when given minutes, he makes the most out of it.  Jimmer is definitely a rhythm player and playing for 5-10 minutes on and off the bench doesn’t work for that type of player.  For the past month, his minutes have been a bit more consistent which allowed Jimmer to know that he’s going to play before the game.  That always helps.

But tonight, Jimmer went off.
