Denver is 5-1 with 5 new guys so forget gelling and chemistry as an excuse. We are 2-3 with 2 superstars in the lineup and were a .500 team before we shipped our 4 guys to Denver, you could make a case that the common denominator is D'Antoni's coaching and system.
I wasnt gonna point any fingers but jeffries pretty much blew it, he had way to many mistakes. He gave up way to much on the pick and roll, but the play alot of people are overlooking is the last drive by melo. The lane opened, why in sam hell did JJ go through the lane, (spread the floor) it was his defender who drew the charge. STAT had a bad defensive night too BTW. I know its a rebuilding process but yo play for the moment! Bad coaching down the strecth along with the team defense is why we caught that L.

Statement game my ass!
Giving up 119 against ****ing Cleveland is a joke.
STAT is such a weak defender...it's not even funny anymore.
Our whole team defense was bull****!
Sorry for cursing around here, but I'm pissed!
Losing all 3 against the worst team in the league....can I get a break?
If we show up in Chitown with this type of defense we'll get swept by the Bulls.
Shame on our players they defended like morons!
In a game like this I could only blame the coach.
I have never had a negative email on D'Antonio but this
game is on him.
I think its time for a change.
I loved the way Walker played against the heat....time to boost him up....
problem now is we have Balkman, Jeffries and Turiaf 3 no-offense players on the bench.......
Sheldon williams actually boxed out....
No excuses but we missed 20% (2 of a 10man rotation, more if we use less of a rotation) in Turiaf and Billups
Not to mention a leader and defensive impact player.
Coach figured this game can be won (out of the remaining) with a depleted roster and rolled the dice.
We still are geling but really we are learning how to play with different line ups.
It sucks, but our goal should be to make the playoffs and be clicking on all cylinders. Let's stay focused!
I agree Red. It's all a learning experience. This team will see growing pains, we'll go through a learning curve with two-three new starters in Billups, Melo & even Turiaf... The main focus is playing strong & heading into the playoffs with momentum, confidence & focus.
Cleveland L's behind us; this is still a team that can make noise & compete out of the East. We're only 3-3 since the trade, but the best of NY has yet to come. Still, with Amare & Carmelo... There is no reason to lose to the Cavs.
Hopefully Billups will give us a spark & we get hot starting with Atlanta. Thats still a big game on the road. Beat the Hawks & we're only 3 games back in the loss column for the 5 seed with over 20 games to go.
