we have no intimidating presence in the middle and teams consistently run a lay-up drill on us. we have to have possibly the worse interior d in the league. until we get a shot blocking presence were gonna always being among the bottom tier in d
I agree with what you said about a shotblocker, but Hughes was doing a pretty fine job.
Not to mention, the officiating at the end of this game was diabolical. Not that it's any excuse, but when we're on a 0-12 run and when we get our first good look in 3 minutes they call offensive foul, then defensive foul on the other end... Then Wade barges straight through Hughes and ofc no foul. We probably would have lost anyway but that **** is frustrating.
I know one rule D.Wade made perfectly clear....the rule where you show all the Knicks weaknesses for a Knick Loss....he showed that in just 12 minutes by scoring 24 points in the 4th quarter.
That "certain rule" does not apply to any team Dantoni coach (No Stops in the 4th Qtr.) do Dantoni have a 4th quarter playbook...
Hard to tell this season....our passing-game won us a couple of games playing little to no defense this season (24 wins)....adding Hughes for 32 and more minutes a game put a wrench in our passing-game with Harrington and Nate chucking the ball while Duhon team-work only increase the turnovers each game.
Is Larry Hughes a 32 mpg player this season???
Knicks are the Chicago Cubs of basketball. the way this franchise is run the Grizzlies will win the championship before us.
Whoa now don't be so quick to blame Lee on that lose.Yes he and Duhon got mixed up there at the end but it should'nt hav'nt come down to that.Am I the only one that saw Nate and Harrington throw up brick after brick and bad shot after bad shot after the first quarter on.They're the two that really got the ball rolling for the Heat and their comeback victory.I really like Nate as a player but he HAS to calm down his emotions during a game.He want him to keep the emotion that helps him play better BUT he has to get rid of the emotions that makes him ****y and get into other players faces wanting to fight.
Like I said I like Nate as a player but he has to work on his emotions b/c they will getting nothing but trouble.
