well, i hope there is a lot of game tape rolling back at them today as a result of that horrid defense last night. the suitcase falls right open if there is a weak link.
with regard to how morbid, lazy, miserable and uneffective rondo played for over half that game, i don't know. this team wants to win and for the vet leadership to take a ham sandwich of a center and get him so involved in the offense that he gets half as many FTA's in 6 games as he had ALL YEAR with OKC, well that says something.
maybe THEY have had it and are looking for easy ways to get the job done, despite the "floor general" making things harder as often as he facilitates. but alas, there is nothing you can do when the ball is being usurped and flattened into the floor at the top of the key. that crap has to stop!
i really like the green-pierce-kg and ray to a lesser extent ball movement i've seen in the past few games. these things are moving the ball around and krstic is getting rich on dunks, layins and foul shots. we've never had an easier time of inside scoring.
and i must admit that i had INSTINCTIVE thoughts of "oh good, a guy is there who does things decisively" when i saw arroyo in the game last night. he does do things crisply, whether it be shoot, drive or pass, without the painful delays that just allow the defense to dig in harder, 3 second calls, broken plays, etc.
i don't think arroyo at 31 is starting material, he only started 1 year in his career, but he does do things like a point guard should, and can shoot the outside shot. nice to see in a green uniform, a real back up guard. maybe he can push rondo into player better.
