This is a game that hurts to loose , specially after having 1 chance to win it, and then to tie it. Our line up has been trimmed down to 7 players averaging 20-25 min and the less rotation is starting to show it’s benefits( expect some).
Tonight we gave up too many points from the C’s bench. Barbosa and Green both ended with 16 points,,, YES 16 when they only been getting 4PPG. Not to point fingers but…Randy…….you can shoot the 3, yes ill give you that. But seriously. play some D!. Every team we play against from the Gay to Derozan have completly destroyed him. The question now is . worth having him on to make 3’s when they score 16 on us??…
Now leaving poor Randy alone , I shall move to our point guard who is for me the one that made us loose.
Mo Williams, can assist , can score and make a 10-0 run ( spurs) but his decision making ability has to be questioned. The jazz were down by 1, with a little over 30 seconds left. Instead of making a play, getting to the foul line , passing the ball to a teammate…..he chose to be the hero. FAIL . Then we are down by 3 and catch a break by a traveling on Green. What does he do?. shoot a contested 3 with 10 seconds left. WHYY!! .
Now the positive.. can anyone say Derrick Favors is just a future All start??. He has proven that his defense is amazing. He makes the team better and never gives up. And yes i know he can’t make much offensively, but little by little he is starting to increase those numbers. Im not the coach and probably super biased on what the starting lineup should be, but millsap and jefferson doesn’t seem smart anymore. If i was to choose, i would let paul stay in and Big Al go to the bench.
Big Al can score in late situations, but he is just what you call a black hole . He does more bad than good, his defense is as bad as it gets. If put in a balance, more points get scored on us because of his deficiency .
Well i should probably ended on the sweet note that even though we lost a hard fought game, the unit is looking more solid. And im personally loving it. All those first game jitters are starting to go away. Now on to Philly.
