All the bench needed to do was burn another couple of minutes, maybe score a couple of times, and try and keep the Jazz scoreless, all Mike Brown needed to do was, at that point, put the starters back in. Instead, bench makes the mistake of leaving Foye open, okay, you can live with that, especially when MWP answers, then they proceed to leave him open two more times in as many possessions, and just like that, it's basically out of reach for the starters.
But I still think I'm more pissed that you basically *never* see Lakers players hitting open shots as well as (insert any random professional basketball player) when they get open shots. This game is especially bad to be fair, but all last season, if it wasn't in the paint, it wasn't going in. Even Phil's teams had that tendency, though mercifully we had serviceable three point shooters then. These days, I'm reasonably confident *I* would hit open shots more consistently than most of this team.
