So did I. He was actually able to keep Parker in front of him minus a few times he got picked off on a screen.
I'm not a stat junkie, but if anyone can pull up the advanced stats for when Morris was on Parker it would be really appreciated.
On offense however, Morris is a freakin train wreck. I think they should only play Morris with Kobe and have Morris play a Fisher type role aka camp out in the corner and hit the 3. Anything more than that is a turnover waiting to happen.
My WMC: That line up to close out the game.. MWP/Kob/Jamison/Pau/D12.. At the critical juncture in the game when we absolutely have to tighten the screws on D, we give the Spurs the advantage of a HUGE mismatch by putting MWP on Parker. Jamison is good to spread the floor I guess but we all know his D is nothing to write home about.
All in all, this was a very winnable game and our lack of execution is what cost us at the end. I don't believe in moral victories, but if I did then this would go in the moral victory column. We have shown improvement every single game since we got rid of Brown and if we would have faced the Spurs last week with Brown at the helm, I'm confident we would have gotten blown out by 20+. We are taking steps in the right direction and with a real coach on board this weekend I expect us to keep improving.
