I expect them to play with the same effort and intensity on the defensive end that they always do...
We usually go into "crap parts" of the game, but they're hardly ever because of a lack of hustle, or intensity on defense like today...I can tolerate cold shooting, guys making tough shots against us, and an occasional brainfart on the court...what annoys the hell out of me, is when a guard drives past our guy, and then our other 4 guys stand and watch as he drives into the lane for an uncontested layup...this has happened multiple times today...
still waiting on you to prove to me where i said we were playing good? our d is **** poor.
Announcer had it exactly right, there. Game turned when they doubled Brackins.
If we just had someone else to step up and hit some shots when they do that, we're still in it. Unfortunately, we flounder in that respect. Not sure what it is, coaching, or players not executing. I find it hard to believe that we don't have a game plan for when a team doubles your best player, so it is really pointing at execution.
What to do about it is a whole different can of worms.
Why wouldn't you double/triple the only guy on the team that can score? Seems foolish not to.
