He was atrocious in the paint. No amount of offense can make up for pathetic defense from your centre. Even if he averaged 39 ppg.
is the only reason we didnt get blown out that game. Miami was still scoring with Ed on the floor but we werent. Outside Bargs
and Derozan there was barely any offence from us so either way we would have lost. Bargs
didnt play great defence but he did keep us in it with the offence. Tell me who you think would have stepped up and scored in the 4th other then bargs? No one has shown the ability to put up points in late stages by themselves outside him.
BTW, when Ajinca and Bargs
were paired up in the back court, we played some good defence. We need to pair up Bargs
with a real good C and then decide what to do with him.
