Our staring backcourt of Nash/Blake 3-20 FGS, 11 pts, 13 ast, 3 TO's...Blake played 31 minutes; Nash played 23 minutes. Farmar, playing about 15 minutes, shot 3-6, had 7 points, 4 assists, 2 TO's...he had a stretch where he didn't play so well, but as you can see, aside from the assists, he's more effective then Blake in about half his time.
Not only do stats back this up, but he's by FAR the best PG on this team. He's under control, his decision making his solid, his shooting is on point, and he usually does a good job of initiating/directing the offense, and when things break down, he could create his own shot. Why wasn't he out there during the 4th quarter last night? Why was the slow, non-athletic, can't shoot Blake even sniffing the court? And why is Nash getting more minutes when he's just terrible on both ends of the court?
Another thing; Jordan Hill; play 11 minutes, 5 points, 4 rebounds (3 offensive), and you decide not to play him more throughout the game? Are you stupid MDA? Kaman and Williams weren't nearly as productive nor did they provide the impact that Hill did in his limited time. I didn't get that. As far as the rotation line, he fed the media of not playing Hill, I don't believe it. I don't think he likes playing Hill; he never has even in the days of when Hill was a NY Knick; and MDA was coaching for that franchise.
All in all, we should have won this game. I'll never get this rotation/experimenting; you play the guys that are productive and play well for you. MDA is seemingly clueless to that fact...
