Tough loss but I'm glad our team showed some heart considering we have a playoff run to make. Vinny was terrible as were the refs. Rose messing up two key plays is worrisome, Tyrus taking two jumpers at critical moments in OT wasn't great either. Lots of blame to go around in a game like this.
Hope Vinny was keeping him out because he was hurt and not just because he thought Hinrich was a better option. Hopefully Salmons is alright, we need all the help we can get on these last few games. Having Salmons out there would of helped us, but it shouldn't have come down to this. We should of made stops in the 3rd quarter and took control of the game. This was ours for the taking!!
I hope John isn't hurt too, hopefully it was just Vinny being Vinny. I thought Rose and Noah spearheaded the 3rd quarter run where we cut it to 3-4, but then Vinny pulled Rose and Noah with 5 minutes left in the 3rd. Noah had 16 points in 20 minutes then Vinny pulled him until the last few seconds of OT. I really think we need a new coach, but it will only happen if we totally collapse down the stretch here. I pray we finish strong and make the playoffs, but that also means more Vinny next season.
Yes, that's the one thing I was baffled at too. Why was Joakim sitting for that long? I hate to push blame and all, but I don't really see why he and Brad couldn't have been on the floor. Tyrus couldn't guard Bargnani at all.
