Suddenly the defense stopped.
I mentioned in another thread that the effect of a running team, especially an older running team is that the players will rest coming back up the floor and on defense......plus, teams know we are playing defense as individuals and not as a team, this makes it very easy to find easy ways to score....and it's not like 'Antoni will fix the problems...no, dumbo will just try to figure out how to score more points
