So many bailout games and bailout wins. He doesn't look geniuis when we win and stupid when we lose. He looks exactly the same. If we had a coach like Greg Popovic, we would actually be good at winning those tight games on a consistent basis because of much better execution and playcalling as well as better defense and sub rotations.

You forgot to mention winning a game because Indiana just carelessly threw the ball away at the end of the game.

Chalk me up as someone who doesn't see the strategy of "have a shitty 4th quarter due to bad rotations and poor playcalling from timeouts then hope Rudy can iso FTW" as a sign of a great coach. And really, is the bar so low in Raptorland that just having the team mostly playing hard is good enough?
