What i would suggest is to sit him out for a game. In the press box. Or atleast take his minutes down a significant amount. Give him the kick in the butt he needs to wake up & play better defensively. Tonight was not the only time his defense gaps have cost us. This cannot keep going on throughout the stretch drive & into the playoffs. AV must take care of it now. Maybe it's that he's trying too hard offensively? Either way he needs to be told to simplify his game defensively, and that the offense will surely follow. This is one of those times an organization has to take the reigns on a players performance so it doesn't become a permanent habit!
