That is the problem -- they can't seem to dial up focus, or whatever it takes to match an opponent's energy, as games wind down. Which can happen in the 3rd quarter when they have a big lead. Sad.Just don’t know what the fix is when the players and coach have no answer for the simple fact of being shit in the 2nd half when the other team starts trying harder.
He went into the game 92nd in the league in three point shooting percentage. He's gotta shoot it, but I hate seeing it late in games.
I think you're grasping at straws. How'd he do with 2 free throws right at the end? Missed the first and then on the second attempting an intentional miss couldn't even hit the fucking rim. Yeah, he's Bird, Havlicek and Pierce all rolled into one.I think I saw Tatum make 2 great shots at the end of the 4th quarter
That’s totally what he said. Your posts are dogshit.I think you're grasping at straws. How'd he do with 2 free throws right at the end? Missed the first and then on the second attempting an intentional miss couldn't even hit the fucking rim. Yeah, he's Bird, Havlicek and Pierce all rolled into one.
Its the defense that disappoints me so much. They continually give up these monster runs and watch huge leads evaporate because they can’t just fucking guard someone. The players play the game and they just don’t seem to learn that you can try to kill as many runs as you want with a barrage of 3s but it’s a lot simpler to just get a few stops. They just can’t seem to knuckle down and get them when they need themI expected a real rough stretch because of the injuries-roster situation, but losing a 24 pt lead against a so-so team is prettty inexcusable.
A decent effort on defense can cover some stuff and can turn into easy transition points, and can make up for problems on offense, but the effort doesn't seem there.
This team chokes when it gets that option, and its hard to watch.
