Play like a bitch? Expect to get treated like one!
It's a Red Flag game because Houston didn't even play well tonight.
I anticipate Shaq to get suspended. And maybe even Nash...I don't think he should be, but I just wouldn't be surprise if this f**king league do this.
At least Amare and Boris stayed on the bench this time.
We're not as good as our record indicated. We beat the Nets because we were hot and the Nets were cold. Shaq had a big game against Boone and Yi, like he should. Amare saved them in Indy and LB in Memphis or this would be a 4-5 ball club right now.
I really hate Porter's rotation. Hate it. Who's the 6th guy and who's the 9th guy? Figure this one out quick God damnit! Last game it was LB, tonight it was Boris. How are the guys going to gel? Settle down! And ride the hot hand man! He did it last game to LB, pulled him after 8 minutes. He did it again tonight to Barnes, who's played really well and hitting his shot in the 1st quarter but we went away from him.
Our offense is throwing the ball to Shaq every trip down. The spacing is terrible and the Rockets are long enough and quick enough to recover out to our shooters. I don't mind us posting Shaq, but throwing it into him every single time down is ridiculous!!! There has to be some kind of variation. The pick and roll isn't even being spaced right. We didn't attempt to go small with Yao in the game, to try and outrun him or draw him out of the paint with Amare or Boris. That may have opened up the dribble drive game.
The problem is that Shaq isn't out of the game enough. He is getting too many minutes, for too long of stretches. He should be in for 6-7 minutes and then sit. And when he sits, we should run like hell. This is one of my main beefs with Porter right now, is that he plays everybody for too long of stretches. We've seen him going with a lineup of Dragic-LB-Hill-Boris-Lopez/Amundson for almost the whole quarter. Yes our starters need rest but you can't take them out too long and expect them to step right in and light it up. And then add that the 2nd unit usually gives up lead and couldn't score, it's very frustrating to see.
Right now our offensive strategy minimizes the talents of several of our players who used to be effective under MikeD's system: Nash, Raja, Hill, LB, maybe even Barnes. It's a decent offense for Shaq and Amare and even then Amare isn't getting enough touches often. Basically we are a confused team, and have looked like it for a few games now. They don't know how to run anymore. In the half-court, they dump the ball to Shaq way too much. The spacing isn't there. We don't know how to play the pick and roll anymore because everyone is in the wrong place! Basically, the spacing is very horrible. And that's another reason why no one can complete a pass resulting our high TO rates. Everyone just stand and watch. No one is moving. No one is cutting. Teams are collapsing in the lane because our guys ain't active when Nash is dribbling.
Again, this offense shouldn't focus on Shaq THIS much. We are wasting our offensive talent on our roster. The offense now is focused too much on Shaq to the point where everyone else isn't involved. Again, there has to be variation. When MikeD is here, people said we played too much pick and roll that made us too predictable. Well, with Porter's new offense, our offense looks even more stale and predictable...We need balance. We can run, we can play slow, we can run the "used-to-be-so-deadly" Nash-Amare pick and roll, and we can dump to Shaq. Mix it up!!!
Porter's rigid rotations annoy me every game, win or lose. He has to be willing to play guys at spots other than their natural position....there's a reason we used to crush Houston pre-Porter. We could've do some damage with a lineup of Amare-Boris-Barnes/Hill-Raja-Nash. We didn't. We played into their hands. Boris was the 9th guy off the bench tonight...and again, who's our sixth guy? He hasn't figure out yet! Frustrating.
You can see players are frustrated as well....Nash's frustration really came out tonight. He was jacking up jumpers he wouldn't usually take, he was pushing and shoving in that brawl...
I know it's early, it's a transition period, but I'm worried.
Quote of the day:
I love Tyrus like a man can love another man, in the beautiful, caring way, not the filthy bathroom stall way.
