I was at the Bulls-Nets game yesterday and Thibs did it once again.
Anyone who watched the game or read up on it knows that we were winning by almost 30 for practically the whole game.
With 3 minutes left in the 4th quarter...Deng, Boozer and Noah were still playing. WHY????
There's no reason for that at all. Why risk one of them getting hurt in garbage minutes. There was obviously no chance for us to lose why put our team in that kind of position?
We have a good bench and he uses it pretty often why not let them play all of the garbage minutes too. He put Scalabrine, Lucas and Butler in with only like a minute left. No reason for that. These guys could have played the last 5 minutes of the game and we would have still won by 20+
I love Thibs but he really needs to stop doing this.
