Teams with a lack of talent just can't sustain it for a full 48, especially against really quality teams.

I don't have a huge problem with him, but the ball can get pretty sticky in his hands.

Exactly. He keeps putting the wrong people at crunch time. He leaves Bargnani in when Davis is scoring. He always has the wrong players at the end of the game. Awful. I think they should FOCUS on how they are being freaking coached.

Last year, Casey didn't have a choice of people to play. He was left with what he had. This team is a much better team but they are not being used to their fullest. They blame it on lack of focus or lack of effort. Well, if someone doesn't give any effort then freaking bench them. But no, Bargnani can't score with his life on the line, but he keeps him in the court.

Maybe it's not talent, it's more to do with effort and chemistry. Coaching too. What happened to Casey?

Totally, and then tonight he leaves Ed in when they need scoring and spacing. It's brutal. That second unit just got bogged down.... it was very difficult to watch.

Ed Davis was 2/6 with 3 boards, 1 turnover, 1 steal, 1 block -9 (against Odom/Turriaf etc..)

Bargnani was 5/15 with 2 boards, 2 assists, 0 turnovers and 1 block -10 (Against Blake Griffin)

Davis has impressed lately, but tonight wasn't one of those nights where he deserved more minutes.

Bargnani was playing solid D on Griffin, despite Griffin putting up decent numbers.

Regardless, neither was the reason we lost this game. Poor player management, and bad rotations.

Derozan looked like a young star tonight. Better freeze him out next game and keep him from getting any ideas. #focus

The defence was on point and they could have won. It was bad play n coaching decisions in the 4th that killed it. DC waited way too long to call a timeout when the Clippers were on that run in the 4th aswell.

We always knew they were going to lose to the clippers. But playing solid defense and staying close the entire game till the 4th and then being blown out because your coach makes stupid decisions ... sucks! Casey kept the starters in too long and gassed them out, and because he didn't play his bench they were cold which equates to a 10 pt 4th quarter.

I can see the team responding very poorly to Colangelo's "ripping", and rightfully so.
