    WTF is Mason doing on the court instead of Walker?

    You're an idiot Mike

    Mason was in for his defense.

    How hard is it to forbid the players from shooting 3s for a game? How about a half? A quarter?

    Already 1-9. NOt only are they lost possessions, but they usually come at the worst times (normally when opponent is building a lead).

    It's like they try to make up for mistakes and get 6 points a possession by chucking a quick 3.

    You would think after 4 staright losses, coach would prohibit anyone from taking a 3 and forcing them to earn high percentage shots.

    Guess not.

    What defence!? He was in for his shooting by the looks of it, and goes 1-4.

    I don't like the Wilson Chandler vs Scola matchup at all. He's getting killed.. Nice finish to the half.

    STAT can score at will.... Why are we bothering to chuck up 3s? STAT had 12 points in 1st quarter and we barely go to him the rest of the half.

    I don't need to see Douglas take 7 shots in 5 minutes. Please stop.

    Randolp and Gallo played well, Chandler looks lost again.

    This is going to be tough. I sense another 4th quarter collapse.

    As usual, we'll live/die by the 3.

    You know, I hate to say it but...

    I think Douglas is the problem.

    I think Douglas needs to realize that he can't keep chucking 3's and try to change the game. I think the fact that he had those amazing first few games of the season is getting to his head and he thinks that his shot will always be falling like it was then.

    Well, newsflash, it won't be, and if Douglas had passed to someone else instead of shooting 1-7 (1-5 from 3) then the game would probably be tied.

    And I feel bad for Anthony Randolph - I want the kid to get some minutes because, quite frankly, he's playing really well given the limited amount of time he gets. He grabbed 2 boards made 2 of 3 shots and blocked a shot all in the span of 6:30....

    Yep. STAT can learn some post moves from Scola. He's slow, deliberate and patient. STAT's already taken on 3 defenders on 3 separate occasions for 1 point on a FT.

    mafra, I agree entirely.

    I know D'Antoni's system lives on the 3 and having a bunch of good 3 point shooters. And we do.

    But there are some nights (like this one) where the shots won't fall, and instead of just shooting MORE (*cough*Douglas*cough*) we need to drive to the basket more often.

    STAT has played well tonight, Gallo has done just that (he's only taken one 3 and he's been trying to go inside which is really good), Fields had a nice dunk...but Douglas 1-7 and Mason 1-4 really kills us. Imagine if we had taken slightly better shots on those and instead of 2-11 made 5-11 or even 4-11. We'd be tied, or even WINNING with better shot selection...come on.
