Datz, I felt like the D was playing for the 3 on that dunk. Do you think it would've been that easy if they were down by 2? It might have been.
Perhaps, but Jet was lost anyways because he had his back to the ball and it was misdirection where they made it look like Pierce was going to rub off a Green screen or vice versa and then he went the other way for the lob.
Inexperience beat the Cs tonight (not taking anything from the Mavs here, just pointing out an issue, before anyone gets upset). Green giving Stackhouse that dunk off the backdoor play and letting Harris take the inbounds play the length of the floor while Allan Ray celebrated, two big mistakes that I hope Rivers emphasizes to the team. Also would have liked to see Perkins out there at the end of the game instead of Ray, for defense and rebounding, but I guess that was part of testing Ray out at point guard.
Real your boys played good tonight. They kept saying how Al wasn't a good ft shooter and he kept knocking them down. And Green busted out of his slump in a big way.
Yeah, the two main young talents played well, but Green still has a lot to learn about team defense. He says that he's going to work on his skills across the board with John Lucas for the first part of the summer and then come back here and lift weights until he's 235. IMO 225 would be enough.
