    MDA teams playing LOCK DOWN defense in crunch time.. 11 points and 12 points allowed in the last two 4th quarters.

    D'antoni making defensive adjustments mid game

    WTF is happening right now...

    ITS SO WEIRD.

    like soo many complaints I've had with D'antoni as a coach, he hasn't done in this win streak.

    He has made adjustments in games

    Hes managed time outs perfectly and called them when we needed to

    Like when we had horrible lap in defense and STAT just let Barbosa blow by him for a lay up he called time out to stop the run and fix the D.

    Used the rotation well, made subs and switches when he had too. When players were playing awful like stat and walker where a few times in the game HE took them out!

    The seven seconds or less, chuck threes non stop offense is DEAD AND GONE.

    THANK GOD.

    He actually benched STAT after this play. THIS WAS A GREAT job by MDA...

    Thats because we won......If we lost it would be...Stat should not have started, why is billy walker in, Lin has too many minutes, why was shump not guarding calderon earlier, why no set plays for novak....

    when your winning every decision is good .....but the hypocrites pop out when they complain when we are losing.....

    I agree most people are critical after a loss. I wouldnt call them hypocrites. Passionate may be a better word.

    As for tonight Lin did in fact play to many minutes...

    Gotta call it like I see it. STAT let the man he was guarding blow by him like he was a fence post. I was saying take him out before he took him out.

    He still played Lin to many minutes though. Baby steps. Baby steps...

    PS You gotta let STAT know right now defense will be taken seriously going forward. This is why I think it was great for him to sit him a few minutes...

    Lin was pretty pivotal throughout the 3rd and 4th on offense though, finally getting STAT going etc. I'm not sure we could have rested him and still won.

    I would eat all the crow in the world if D'antoni coaches an NBA team to a championship.But I have a better shot at playing back up PG for the Knicks or dating Miss America than D'antoni has at accomplishing such a feat.

    Maybe the team can win one despite MDA? No?

    passionate without a doubt.......I think we tend to question every move Dantonio makes....I am not defending him but we have done this with our past 3 coaches so one starts to wonder....

    Listen when we are winning the glass is half full.....especially wins like these because we all know from seasons past these are always the games we lost...
