Game 29: Hornets at Lakers
No injured players??!!
If there are no injured players, is this even an official Hornets game?
That’s strange. HornetsPR twitter shows Melo, Gordon out.
maybe we had too many for the algorithm.
No Mark, but seems like Miller-Time is back. Let’s Go Brandon!
Saw where Miller was wearing ankle braces at practice.
Gordon out 2 weeks with a strained calf.
Fell asleep so watched the DVR version.
Miles is such a low BBIQ player. All the rumor sites have him as one of Detroits main targets this offseason and hopefully we’re smart enough to work a trade/get a fat trade exception.
Terry, man the dude just doesn’t pass and it’s contagious; guys with the low bbiq like Miles and PJ start doing the same thing. Terry has a load of talent but he’s an expert at putting an “I” in “team”
I hate how Cliff is so stingy with minutes in regards to Mensah and NSJ. Ya Nick is getting more burn but it’s mostly with Terry; have him replace him and let Nick be the offensive focus.
Great having Brandon back. As Eastley pointed out in a previous game thread he promotes ball movement. Need more of him.
Gotta wonder what’s happening in the locker room where we play the 2nd half like another team. Becoming a thing.
What I noticed was Melo and Hayward were not on the bench in the second half.
To me it is telling of locker room trouble, if your highest paid players are not on the bench supporting the team in the second half.
Here is the 1st half:
Here is the 2nd:
I think a lot of our defensive issues stem from having low BBIQ players.
Yes, some of them simply don’t want it enough, and/or only really care about getting their stats, but it’s off ball D where we’re really bad and a lot of that comes down to BBIQ. Look at Miller. Yes he wants it more than most, but he’s clearly got a higher BBIQ, better peripheral vision etc.
Thor, for example, wants it. He just doesn’t seem to get it. No excuse for regressing, other than having a bigger role thrown at him and struggling to cope.
Also, I’m fed up with 6’3” to 6’5” Guards who lack the size/length to defend SFs and the facilitation ability to play PG.
