looks like blaming Bargnani has become the latest fashion ... not sure what did he do wrong in this game, other than one or two defensive mistakes, much fewer than chris bosh, antony parker or joey graham ... Again, mitchell chose to make his the scapegoat by taking him out after the first minutes in the second half, for no apparent reasons. I thought he played ok in the first half, had 5 rebounds (more than Bosh), and held his own against McDyess. Yes, he missed 3 shots, but they were all good shots, so I don't see a problem there.

If anybody is to blame for this loss, it's Sam Mitchell, who apparently learned nothing from the game last week, the same people that burned us then had their way again. For some reasons AP can't keep up with Hamilton, but luckily Mitchell had this great idea: why don't we put our worst defender (kapono) on hamilton, maybe that will work ...

And Bosh, he is completely useless against a strong defense, proving one more time that we'll never beat a good defensive team with CB4 as a primary offensive weapon ...
