The diminutive Wolves guard shows absolutely no qualms about taking it to the hoop, and the behemoths who surround it.

JJ is an important part of this team. He's a sparkplug, gets assists, draws fouls, and is very aggressive and energetic. We're fortunate to have him. Stay healthy JJ. You're a key to our postseason success.

Now that Lee is down again, what will the starting lineup be if Ricky returns Saturday? Will Shved start at the 2, as he did in the second half when Lee couldn't answer the bell? 1. Rubio 2. Shved 3. AK47 4. KLove 5. Pek Should be an effective lineup. The Russian Rubio and the Spanish Shved, paired up at last? Should be fun to see.

"Barea was fouled hard by Ron Artest, which led to Artest's suspension." It was actually Andrew Bynum who delivered that dangerous cheapshot.

Yeah it was Bynum, not Ron Ron.

JJ is a nice part of a team as shown during Mavs championship run. He may never be a day to day starter, but brings great energy and change of pace off the bench.

I applaud JJ hustle and ever quest for the ball but I wish he would play a little smarter and tone down the almost impossible play that usually leaves him injured. i.e. diving out of bounds for a ball that he has no chance in retrieving. He doesn't do the Wolves any good on IR or limping around.

Both Bynum and Artest (WP?) got suspensions for flagrant fouls against JJ in that series agains LAL.
