HoopsHype Jordan Farmar rumors
On the season, he's averaging 14.7 minutes per game, averaging 4.3 points, 1.8 assists and 1.2 rebounds. Each statistic represents a career low for the 28-year-old point guard. "When you don't play a lot, yeah," Farmar said when asked about the difficulty in adjusting to playing with the Clippers. "You don't take more than two shots, and if they go in, you had a good night, and if they don't, you struggled. It's tough. There's no substitute for the game. Even if you go in [and practice] and play one-on-one or two-on-two or three-on-three. You just have to stick with it. Things happen. It's a long season. ESPN.com
While Darren Collison was able to play with Chris Paul last season and was used a defensive weapon, that's simply not an option with Farmar, who isn't on Collison's level as a defender. Paul and Collison averaged 11.6 minutes together on the court last season, but Paul and Farmar are averaging just 2.4 minutes together. And while Collison was able to be a true point guard last season for the second unit, Jamal Crawford is often the one bringing up the ball for the second unit. "I just need to find a way to get more comfortable and get them more comfortable with me and build as we go," Farmar said. "It's a long season and I've been trying to fit in, and sometimes you just got to make a statement and that's all I was trying to do, just really be aggressive." ESPN.com
Farmar’s 13 assists this preseason are second on the team only to Chris Paul. While Farmar would like to continue getting into a groove with his new teammates, his focus is on Oct. 30 and the start of the regular season. “As much as I like to be out there every day, these don’t mean anything at the end of the day,” he said. “I’m really just trying to be healthy and have a long, healthy, productive season.” NBA.com
