He does give energy and defense off the bench. But because of his reputation people just assume he doesn’t play defense. Fact is he’s put a lot of effort into his defense, and most here are oblivious to it. He’s also valuable to the jazz as the team usually dominates during the time he’s in the game, just look at his +/- for the year.
His defense has improved but his defense is still sh*t. FIVE fouls in 14 minutes of play is not good defense
