Rough night for our boys yesterday as we fell by 20 to the Denver Nuggets. We played well for nearly three quarters, but by the end nothing was left in the tank and our defense sagged. As did our offense. When your offense goes against a team like the Nuggets, that’s the end of the game.
The Zan for Three
George Karl is Brilliant.
When a team comes into Denver, the Nuggets have a clear advantage – they’re used to the altitude. So what does Karl do? He plays his starters for the entire third quarter. Naturally, Jay responds by keeping his starters in the game. Our guys get tired and their guys do not. That my friends, was the end of the game.
I’m going to harp on this for the rest of the season because it’s driving me nuts. When Chris Bosh decides to double team the ball at the top of the circle, the opposing team always gets an open shot. Why? He’s running through the motions. He doesn’t double aggressively on the ball (therefore the double is pointless) and the team has to rotate to guard the player he’s supposed to be covering. One or two smart passes later and the opposing team has a wide open look. Watch for it.
Hoops Bar and Grill
I love you Hoops. I watch basketball games there often. But for the love of God, if you’re not going to play the Raptor game over the Leaf game don’t call yourself Hoops. It’s maddening.
Zan of the Night
He was a monster. It was one of those nights. Not necessarily our fault. He was hitting everything from everywhere.
Not Zan of the Night
Nice bow douchebag. Momma says, don’t let yourself get too high when you win or too low when you lose. Honourable mention goes to Jarrett Jack who was once again the worst player on the court.
