They live-and-die by the three, and, when it doesnt fall, like it hasnt been lately, they have none chance to do anything. They will not go in and get easy layups, which they can every time, if they wanted to. They refuse to play defense. They have no lock down defender, and dont like to rebound the ball.
If they do make the playoffs, it will be because we caught a couple of breaks and some teams lost, but we will not get in there because of our own good play.
I have not given up, and really want it to happen, but, realistically, it wont.
WOW!!!!!!!! never thought Id see that.
For f*cks sake though...........how do you guys not see that all this is to do them being burned out from so much running all season!!!
We lead the league in shots attempted (very tiring to shoot the most shots if youve ever played ball)........we lead the league in steals and forced turnovers (its very tiring to force the other team to turn the ball over and get steals......if youve ever played ball)...........and we lead the league in fast break points (hmm, always though running hard and more than the other team was always pretty tiring)
These last 4 games have all been a by-product of us running into the ground all season.........nothing to do with heart.
I couldn't agree more. If Wright and atson had been used more often and Pietrus, Barnes and Azu had been used in a method where they didn;t have to just be the "hot hand" to play, this team would have not tanked out at the end.
