To me the big thing happening at this point is that there is just not the commitment needed for defenses to work. They've become far too easy to pick apart - it's like a shootaround. That puts the whole team on a treadmill with a steep incline. I see not only Bosh, but quite a few guys looking a little stymied. And it all goes back to needing to find those lineups that click on both ends and just go with that.

At what point does this team come to the conclusion that some kind of change is needed?
You're right, and echoes Jack's sentiments last night that this team needs to find an identity.

This team gets so excited, the fanbase, the gm, the coaches, with every addition during the offseason, that's it seems Triano has this need to use them all. To find an identity, he has to realize who his horses are. Who are the guys who are going to get the DNP-Coach's decision when the games matter.

You can't tell right now.
