The Bucks are a 16 -24 record team for a reason....NO DEFENSE
Coach Skiles offense/defense system is considered tier-3 strategy....
He depend on Jennings creative leadership on offense, and Gooden's vocal team leadership on defense....Tier-1 coach Pop depends 25% on Parker & Duncan leadership, the 75% belongs to coach Pop strategic system.
The Knicks allowing the Bucks to get 17 offensive-rebounds to the Knicks 9 offensive rebounds gave the Bucks 93 shot attempts to the Knicks 83 shot attempts....who assignment was it for the defensive-rebounds? was it one of the most minute played players, which become a team factor?
Lin 42 min
Stat 37 min
Melo 37 min
Fields 37 min
Bdiddy 31 min
The Knicks have a roster load of talent on top of talent, yet the Knicks dont have a 2nd half strategy to win a game....this was showed and proven in the Knicks past four road games losing in the 2nd half of the game.
Defense is a team responsibility (all 5 players), its not one or two players....Lin-Sanity prove that in his 7 game win streak with a 30+ minute rotation of co-exist defensive players -Tyson, Jefferies, Fields, Shump....it didnt matter if a 40 minute Lin-Sanity made 15 turnovers these 5 Knicks players caused "STOPS" in the passing-lane, peremeter, or any fool who was willing to challenge Tyson Chandler in the paint in the final quarter of the game.
