Howard needs to understand...he cant go & try to block each and everything
It isn't just Howard, no one else is rotating after the first one. I mean, when Dwight rotates, for example, Pau doesn't rotate to try to cover Howard's man and that gives up a ton of open looks. Happens more on/around the perimeter as well.
You guys need to make some small roster changes. Cut Morris, sign Mike Taylor. Taylor can press and create a fast break on his own. Open up a roster spot for another defensive player such as a Quinton Ross, who will guard the best of the best on the wings. Or go for a high energy defensive guy like a James Singleton.
So many options, they just aren't doing it.
