I’m not panicking but teams can play themselves into bad habits, even good teams. Lots of vets, but still some youngsters, so this has to be nipped in the bud imo. And these aren’t world beaters, the last three games we played the warriors without curry, the griz without four starters, the thunder without multiple starters.
If they aren’t going to play with effort there’s no reason to put the top players out on the court. Injuries happen in those scenarios.
Unfortunately we are seeing the true biz. He’s just not very good. He’ll be 6 fouls we can use. But he’s not even a very good box out and rebound guy. And his offense is virtually nonexistent.
Cam Johnson has a long way to go to get back to how hot he was when he went out with the charley horse. He looked dreadful shooting, driving the bucket and on defense.
Nice to see shamet still playing relatively in rhythm. That will be important in the playoffs.
Javale seems to be getting pushed around regularly in the paint lately.
They can’t keep playing this way for the final four games. Have to rev it back up and go in on rhythm.
