Suns take out Redd so they don't embarrass us with a shooting drill like Boston did in '08.

And Darius Morris just did more in 1 play than Blake did in about 20 minutes. :man10:

I don't. In fact, I think Pau was the biggest culprit of it. He's just too passive.

I have kept a running log of how many times the Suns pulled Andrew and Pau out of the paint on Pick and Rolls......

Andrew 30 possessions he was out of the paint when the shot went up covering someone other than his man. 5 times covering his own man
Pau: 19 possessions he was out of the paint when the shot went up covering someone other than his man. 11 times covering his own man.

We need to change our scheme or teach Sessions how to play the screen/roll.....

Doubt if this team could rally at all if Kobe were out for an extended time... what a liability ... no bench to speak of... this is not a championship team...

Only lost by 20. Not bad.

Just rip apart Steve Blake's contract and make him digest it. Or something. He's a D-League PG at this stage of the game. Honorary mention goes to Mike Brown, for juggling lineups without rhyme or reason. His defense-first approach has fallen on deaf ears, which signals that he's a horrible motivator. He needs to go. JVG would be a wise choice for this team. Rick Carlisle, once he gets fired from Dallas, as well.

We don't force enough TOs. We give up 15 a game and only force 11.5. Today we only forced 3 measly TOs.

Well done. I'm amazed. Bet the coaches know about this? Was it the line up tonight? I'll be watching this as it goes.

Our perimeter defense sucks..... that is where you get turnovers. We don't put any pressure on ball handlers and we are fairly slow on the the outside as well......

I've been noticing since we got Sessions that teams are targeting he and Bynum in the pick and roll. I think Bynum's lower recent rebounding numbers are in part due to this.... he's expending his energy chasing the screen roll all night instead of staying in the paint. Pau is targeted a lot less it seems.

I'm going to start doing this every game for a while to see if this was an unusual or the new norm.... I with I had the time to go back and look at the games when Fisher was starting to see it it is as bad as I think it is.....

^^^So if Kobe would have played, they wouldn't have put up 125 points?

Doc Brown if kobe had played we had scored more and wouldn t had lost it with 20 points and that s the truth.because kobe was in all three games so dominant and if kobe had played he would draw the suns attention on defense and that had given the other players from lakers squad better looks to score :bang:
