Yeah, he played pretty badly, but our offense was completely off the entire 4th quarter. I agree that he's a defensive liability, but we were coughing up turnovers every other trip down the floor, and they got layups in transition.
If we had established him early in the 4th, his scoring would have been a huge help. Of course, it's true that he may have gone 1-8 for the quarter, but he's our best offensive player, so not putting him in until the 4 minute mark is inexcusable when the entire offense is playing like shit. Every trip down the court, we got lucky when the ball went in. None of the shots we took were good shots, and it showed. With Bargs
in, we at least would have given ourselves the best offense to try to pull this one out.
I think we missed Jose tonight. Bayless was great for the first three quarters, but he forced things down the stretch and didn't look for the best shot.
