Why doesn't Jrue Holiday seem to ever pass on the pick and roll / pop

I'm not posting this because of his turnover at the end of tonights game vs. the nuggets, I've noticed this over the course of a couple games this year. Tonight early in the game there were 2 opportunities I noticed where Jrue had an open man after spitting the defense on the pick and instead of looking for the pass to either Brand or Nikola he runs straight into a brick wall while Brand was streaking to the basket and I've seen Jrue do the same thing all year NOT passing to Spencer Halls After the penetration creates space for the kick.

Ive never been one that was ready to crown this guy the next great young point gaurd Ive always had a "lets wait and see " opinion about this guy and really havent been paying too close attention to him other than that i hear alot of praise thrown his way early in his career but the more i see him the more i dont like him. I dont like his instincts or his discission making, I've seen him bring the ball up the court too many times and take long jumpers without working the ball around to get a good shot, he did this 3 times against the Knicks the 1st time he hit a crazy long distance 3 pointer and the next two times he missed a long two and another 3. I think he thinks he's "that dude" when he's NOT, I think he's been reading his own press.

On the other hand Even Turner looked great tonight with the ball in his hands and was making GOOD choices with the ball in his hands. He was the only guy late in the game that WASN'T taking jumpshots when they were down... He was penetrating and getting to the foul line he's the guy that kept them in the game... I say start Evan at point I'm tired of the Jrue Holiday Hype machine. And again I'm not writing this because of his turner over late in the game, I've been feeling like this foe awhile.nbsp;
