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

Re: WMC 12/13: Its all Kome Iso Faults (15-17)

Postby Azndude2190 on Fri Jan 04, 2013 11:52 pm

So many problems with this team:

-The uptempo offense only works when you have athletes who can run the floor and shoot. Meeks is horrible when he has to put the ball on the floor and compounding that problem is the fact that he was 1-7 from 3pt today. Same goes for Metta.

-Horrible defense. We have players not closing in on their man (specifically Kobe) and atrocious transition defense (against the freakin' Clippers of all teams). I swear god, I can't count how many times where I saw a Clipper player shoot the ball going unchallenged. If Dwight Howard wasn't on this team, I don't even want to know how much worse our defense would be.

-No passion, no energy: this is specifically directed at Pau, but goes for pretty much the entire team. It's so sad watching a player who was the 2nd option during our championship run 2-3 years ago become irrelevant.

-No production from the reserves. Hill is our only decent player coming off of the bench and now he's injured.

At some point the guys are just going to give up once it becomes obvious it's too late to salvage the season. Man this is just a nightmare

there's no such thing as a moral victory anymore. these are pretty much playoff games for us for the rest of the year.

i dunno, dwight's offensive game has been less than stellar. it's almost at the point where i'm expecting him to get stripped, brick it, or turn it over over half the time.


That's a health thing, though. As the season progresses, he'll keep getting better. Nash-Kobe-MWP-Dwight are a solid unit... Nash-Kobe on O, and MWP-Dwight on D.


i dunno, i'm less inclined to buy that health excuse as time has been going by...guess we'll see though

Metta & Gasol only combined for 4 points. Are you kidding me?

^IIRC, that was the quarter that Pau didn't play until D12 fouled out.

Coincidence?

I know Meeks shot a really bad % from the field but the dude competed like crazy in the 4th, he hit a 3, made 6 free throws got 2 stops on Chris Paul. The guy was ineffective for 3 Qs but he was trying his hardest. This is what we want from Pau that fighter attitude, Metta has that, Hill has that, Kobe has that, Nash has that, Dwight im not sure, Pau has shown he has that in the past i havent seen it in 3 years

Pau + Metta + Morris = 4 points in 72 minutes

That's hard to do even if your trying to suck

Luke Walton put up 4 points in 17 minutes for the Cavs tonight. He added 3 boards, an assist and a block tonight as well. :man10:

Yeah but Meeks played too dumb for his presence to a be a + in different stretches. I just don't get why he keeps driving and attacking the basket, he NEVER finishes and sometimes gets embarrasingly blocked.. He's got that tunnel vision

Meeks failed to box out Bledsoe on several possessions down the stretch too ... let's not underrate this

meeks needs to start hitting those WIDE open 3's. otherwise why is he on the floor. i think its time for Dantoni to play Jamison more than 3 mins or play him period. AND to give Hill more minutes. I'd be fine with either starting over Pau. Let Pau be the backup 5 where he can "be used properly"

Nash needs to be more involved offensively. He's one of the greatest shooters ever! Him just passing off to Kobe and watching is not helping the team.

Howard is still obviously not 100%. He doesn't have the explosion he used to have.

I have faith in Meeks' shooting. He had an off shooting night but he plays hard. Though his drives can get funny.
