Sorry, i know everyone here seems to like him and wants to give him a chance. But tonight, he was badly outcoached.
hit 13pts in the first 7 minutes, was smilling, on a roll & and is yanked for some stupid reason after not playing much since Sunday after foul trouble on wednesday.Therefor looked fresh. In a game like this where you need to win, you've gotta ride the hot hand and allow your best players to take over the game. He then played a total of 4 minutes the rest of the half. Every starter played more minutes then Bargs
in the first half. I know he picked up his second foul with just under 4 minutes left in the 2nd, but come on.If he picks up his 3rd just play him less in the 3rd.When you've got JO behind him, give him a little bit of rope.
-5 minutes in, yanking Bosh
when he isn't in foul trouble. Most of this was to play JO more. Then they don't draw up plays for JO,minimizing his presence on the floor in the 1st half.
-Not getting Jose/Bargs into the game in time with 2+ minutes left. Bonehead!
On a side note: If Pat Riley doesn't want to make a trade for JO after tonight, he never will!
