Keys: more Fields on JJ. Helping on JJ is killing the defence. Need to try to let Fields run some PnR/PnP with JV/PP. Helps the offence not having him off ball, and he's a capable ball handler/passer.

More Patterson, period. 30+ minutes. No Hansbrough. His defence is not up to scratch in the playoffs.

If Lowry can't keep up with DWill, give GV a little more run with Ross on the floor. Only thing Ross has done even half decently has been guarding DWill for stretches. Needs to be locked in though, as he got blown by a couple times.

Most important thing: DeMar needs to drive with aggression from opening tip. No jumpers unless absolutely wide open and set, or time entirely up. His drive game really drove the comeback last game, and he's perfectly capable of doing that all the time. My main problem with his offensive game is his ability and yet seeming refusal to pressure the opposing defence non-stop.

For some reason, I feel good about this one. Less phantom calls on JV and smarter rotations and I could see a double digit win. Go Raps!!!

Watching the washington and chicago game right now. Both teams playing better than raps. Very dissapointing that, imo, they appear as the worst peforming team in east playoff right now.

Gotta set the tone early and not wait for bkn to set it. 4th quarter defence and intensity from the tip. Get 'em on their heels.

They are having a rough half getting shots to fall. But they r executing. Washington csn be a juggernaut offensively with they way they r built and they r showing it right now. Strong defense strong execution.


Not trying to start an arguement with posters that obviously feel their basketball knowledge is far superior to mortal men, just posting an in my opinion in terms of execution on both sides of the ball. I always assumed 50 odd turnovers in 3 games and pourous defense from the wings meant bad offensive and defensive execution.

So i hear on abc's broadcast that players fouling as a result of being pushed by a third player was a point of emphasis for refs coming into the playoffs. Just pisses me off that much more for that third foul called on Jonas last game.

How dare you have an opinion and say anything negative or non-positive about the raps.

You and snooch can use the kettle to brew some tea and have a pit-tea party. That was a semi-joke. Get it? I didn't really get yours. Just seemed like whining.
