WMC 12/13: Mercy kill. (0-4)

Re: WMC 12/13: To many mistakes= costly loss (34-32)

Postby dwighthowardsdad on Fri Mar 15, 2013 12:43 pm

^In that last 5 games, Metta is shooting 26.7% percent from the 3-point line. In limited minutes(less than what he was getting 2-3 weeks ago), Clark is shooting 23.1% from the 3-point line in the last 5 games. Jamison is at 16.7% in the last 5 games. Blake is at 25 % from three the last 5 games.

On the contrary, Meeks is at 37.5% from 3-point line the last 5 games; Nash is at 46.2% percent for the last 5 games. Kobe is at 37.1%. So within the last 5 games, most of our rotation can't shoot effectively. How is Dwight Howard going to get the spacing he needs to operate even with Kobe out if you can't effectively space the floor? This might be a problem tonight and going forward with Kobe being sidelined if we're trying to play through Dwight or Nash is creating for somebody who can't shoot well consistently.

And yet, we keep launching the 3-ball; This stretch without Kobe is going to be interesting....

Meanwhile:
Wilson Chandler: 42.7%
Danilo Gallinari: 37.5%
Andre Iguodala: 31.6%
Corey Brewer: 29.6%

Iggy and Brewer aren't doing amazing, but Chandler is coming off the bench for goodness' sake.

So we must be due to make some 3's tonight!

LOL at the Pringles comment! We need to hit our 3's tonight. Indiana is a great defensive team. They will pack the paint; so you have to make them pay for that by hitting outside shots. If we do that, Dwight can effectively work down-low. This will give us a decent shot at winning this game.

I don't understand why we never went after Wilson Chandler when he was available... He wasn't commanding super-star money, I'm sure full MLE would've sufficed.... What's his pay with the Nugs?

I know you are being sarcastic....and Kobe has toned his shots down. Right now he doesn't shoot too much.

BUT...he has become a ball stopper. Too often he eats 5 seconds off the clock before making a decision. He really needs to move the ball faster and reduce the TOs while he is at it. Leading the NBA in TOs is kind of embarassing.


I actually agree (at times). No ball movement is still, in my opinion, a sign of no movement off the ball. There are time s he is doing to much solo but I haven't thought he has been hurting the team.

He's getting about 6.75 million per year.

Do you know when someone says, "Not to be that guy" they really are meaning to be "that guy?" The WMC thread listens to the people even "that guy" and has fixed the issue :man1:

WC was traded to DEN and since we're over the tax threshold, we only have the mini-MLE (half).

The ref ruling at that final play before half time was the most idiotic thing ever. You either award them the basket since the clock started early and hence he would have gotten the shot off or you redo the entire play from the moment the last indiana free throw went through and give them 4.5 seconds left. :bang:

Yeah but they cant award the shot because the clock started early. It would be a guess to determine if the shot got off in time. Its like the dumb call/rule where they review an out of bounds and if a guy hits a guys arm and makes him drop it, they award it to the team who committed the foul.

Both dumb tho I agree but right now only way to do it. They need to change it.

EFFFIN Refs. How the hell did they screw up that play before halftime when Nash hit the J. Either give us the entire 6 seconds and replay or give us the basket. WHat is this nonsense of just 1.5s and the ball out of bounds on the other end. Idiots

Refs were terrible, but I'm done complaining. Let us enjoy this win, which most of us did not see coming

Refs trying to screw us over again. No WMC for this team, could have been better at not leaving shooters, but great effort. Best defensive effort ive seen from this team on the road this year.

Offense really, really struggled at times. I guess that's all I can complain about.

Get well, Kobe. Get well, Gasol.
