Did we try to run before we could walk?
it did feel like, from coach/media/RF (inc me,) comments that we would definitely be solid and quite a lot improved from last season from the get go. Maybe we should've just stuck to the kind of sole-focus on D vibe from last season? And hoped that lowry, DD and Bargs
would do what they could offensively?
Really i think it's been 2 terrible performances so far, i include dallas, we were never really in that game, even tho we got it close near the end.
Our O is about the same or worse than last season and our D is a lot worse. Not a good recipe!
I'm still optimistic, i try to stay that way! last 2 games have been real hard to watch though. I think we'll improve, i still trust DC and i still have faith in DD and Bargs
(even tho i don't think Bargs
fits with how we're trying to play.)
right now, just to mix things up and send a message i would go with: lowry/DD/AA/Amir/Val and 2nd unit of Jose/Ross/fields/Ed/Bargs
at C, not as important in 2nd unit. Also could be a lot rotation involved, Bargs
comes in early at PF, amir switches to C, Bargs
at PF with gray at C for 2nd unit, etc.
Kleiza is a mystery, see what he can do when he comes back.
