Default Jack Armstrong on the Fan 590 Criticizes Point guard play


If had to pick one thing, the point guard play should be an absolute major strenght of this team, and isn't.

Not just offensively have they struggled but defensively, Lowry gambles a lot, classic riverboat gambler, will get you stats but that exposes defence.
At times he doesnt compete hard enough defensively, trying to get a steal, trying to hit the home run too much
Calderon tries hard, but can't do it, hard time keeping people in front of him, but not lack of effort.
Offensively, they zone out, jose is affected when he's not starting, and it impacts his performance, lowry of late has been passive, its one thing to put it on cruise control in the first half then try and be a hero in the 2nd half, ya you end up getting big numbers and your team pats you on the back, but you still lost.
Whos the leader on this team? There isnt a leader, suppose to be Lowry and Calderon, they are your lead guards, and they are not leading.

Tried to quote as much as I could, and some other stuff about talent level and being better than Charlotte, Detroit, and Orlando yet not record wise.
