Why does this team not show the sense of urgency from tip-off? I just don't understand.
Aynways, since this is the optimistic thread I'll add something positive by saying that Clark could be a useful bench player in certain matchups. He's honestly better than anything Ebanks has shown.
They showed that intensity from the tipoff against Houston to start the 1st quarter, then stopped playing defense for the rest of the game. Tonight, they played D in short spurts until the end of the game where they had a long stretch. It's about focus and intensity for 48 minutes.
I agree that Clark has shown more than Ebanks has in the last 2 years. I hope we see more minutes from him.
I missed yesterday's game, but you're definitely right about today. We had a long stretch in the 4th where we probably played our best D of the season. I just hope they figure out how to keep that intensity and focus up on the defensive end for the entire game -- and quick. Our window is closing.
