Jermareo Davidson put up his camp-highs in points, rebounds, and blocks today, definitely having his best all-around performance, putting together a lot of the flashes hes shown in the previous days, playing like many people knew he had the ability to do. Davidson stuck to his strengths here today, scoring mostly on finesse moves from the 5-10 feet range, primarily off back-to-the-basket situations, and by cutting to the rim and finishing on strong, athletic jams. From the mid-block area, Davidson went to work by scoring with various hook shots and fadeaway jumpers, using his length and touch to get the advantage on his defender.
Defensively, Davidson was on and off, struggling a bit with perimeter defense on Ivan Radenovic
, not really showing much in the line of fundamentals defending perimeter drives to the basket. He also lost Radenovic a few times with off-ball defense, leaving him open on the perimeter. Davidson did do a good job contesting shots from the weakside in the lane, though, using his athleticism and length to make some nice blocks on opposing drivers. Davidson did manage to grab a nice amount of rebounds over the course of the game, but he doesnt always box his man out and he could pursue the ball in a crowd a bit better, as he has the tools to rebound over most players here.
Davidson has a great set of physical tools and some nice groundwork in terms of skills, so teams will definitely take a long look at him in the early second round. Davidson could use some more bulk on his frame, though, and he would also be a more complete player if he spent more time in the post, as he often settles for face-up type stuff from the mid-range.
