We had 17 offensive rbs and still lost.
Our bench scored 38 pts (with Jamison as our starter mind you) and we still lost.
We allowed 54% shooting and only forced 9 turnovers. That's why we lost.
Yeah, forcing turnovers is a very underrated stat. Since we lost Ariza, we've been seemingly forcing less and less turnovers, and the games just seem harder and harder to win.
Not that Ariza would have solved all our problems; we just don't make a concerted effort to play pesky defense. Well, guess it's hard when you don't get the calls, but oh well, whatever.
