[QUOTE]How often will we keep posting BBD and watch him miss
layup after layup and not even draw any fouls? Doc? How many more times??? Rondo
got very aggressive in the final 2 minutes of the game, when it didnt matter anymore. Hes back to driving hard and pulling up inside the foul line, almost tripping over his own feet lookin to pass
... Doc takes alot of blame in my book...
force feeding BBD when it was clear he sucked and leaving JON on the bench to keep Green (with his best playoff game going)

Agree totally ... Doc mismanaged his personel completely!
/> Rondo looks to get to Ray for a three despite having easy layups
/> BBD is inaffective at center down low and only shoots well when PF from the outside
/> West is mostly used as backup point when indeed his true spot is shooting guard. Instead of getting Arroyos minutes at point he s/b spelling Ray
/> JO'N needs to be on the floor as long as possible ahead of every center on the team ... Period!
/> Green clearly plays best when with the starters ... get him more minute there even if PP plays some mins with the second team as Ray does on occassion (If Green can't screen for Ray or defend then somethings wrong)
/> Ray didn't get enough easy looks tonight for a lack of screens ... Fix it!
/> KG needs to find his shot from the low post where he has an advantage and an opportunity to put key Heat players in foul trouble
/> If PP can't defend Lebron and get his offensive game in gear simultaneously then Doc needs to utilize Pavlovic more to help PP and confuse LeBron with different defensive looks
4th Qtr Pet Peeve: 4 minutes into the fourth qtr and the Heat have 4 team fouls and the C's 1 ... We never challenged them inside to put them over the limit and slow the clock down ... That just BURNS my azz watching 4-5 mins run off the clock with nobody taking it to the rack!
Dumb Suggestion: The C's insist on playing man to man with a team that thrives on getting into the lane yet for an older team Doc never utilized Zone Defense against a much younger/athletic team and I doubt we could even play zone now as they probably never practiced the concept for certain opponents. A Zone D could shut down the lane and turn the Heat into jump shooters and I'd be fine with that ... let their shooters beat us, not 3's from LeBron and Wade on "and ones." Other teams used the zone against the Heat during the regular season and the Mavs are counting on it against the Lakers. Come on Doc ... Improvise some will ya? The Mavs are willing to use it:
"It's not usual for NBA teams to play zone defense, but the Mavericks have added a few extra wrinkles this season in hopes that it takes advantage in Dallas' length with two 7-footers in Tyson Chandler and Dirk Nowitzki and a wide wingspan in Shawn Marion. Just getting the ball inside through penetration and through post play," Lakers guard Kobe Bryant
offered as a solution to attacking the zone." Swinging the ball around the perimeter will only get you so far." The Lakers didn't exactly follow that formula against Phoenix, using the zone as an excuse to fire open outside shots, which led to stagnant movement."
Might work against the Heat and save some energy for our veterans on offense too ... Think about it!
