It was not about one bad game. Rasho and Jose were incompatible - if Rasho had to play alongside Jose he usually ended up with DNPs eventually. And there were health issues with Bargnani. All Bargnani has needed is a meaningful role, and he got loads of big shots under Sam - not inconsistency. Look at this season and you'll see that when Bargs was playing well he played meaningful minutes. That was always the case, and last season he actually got more leeway with terrible play than most of us would have allowed for,

Anyway - I was ecstatic with much of what Andrea did tonight, and I want him with a bigger role from here on out, and not in the shadow of JO. Call me crazy, but I think he's shown he's more committed to this team, win or lose.
