Jay Triano: "I want us taking 20-25 3's per game"

After tonights game where we were 2-10 from three pt range and when we've been horrid from there for the last week+, Jay Triano in his infinite wisdom thinks this team should take 20-25 3pt shots per game and was disapointed that the team didn't take more deep SHATS!!

"I want us to take 20-25 3's per game, and tonight we only took 10....that's not enough"

Whoever doesn't think this guy is a major issue at this point....i don't know what else to say?

We should just focus on becoming the best 3 point shooting team in the league. That is our identity. The reality is that we will never be able to drive and play defense. Why not just shoot 25 threes every game.

Because, first off it's stupid to just say take x amount of 3's. Secondly we've shot 1-21, 2-17, 2-10 in recent games from long range. So with that being said why would any coach in his right mind want more of that?

I think it's pretty obvious that he's right - this team is made of shooters who don't want to shoot. Several times tonight we had open 3s that we turned down to make a pass or to drive. We are slowly becoming a team of kaponos

Are you kidding, we more often then not take 18-22 three point shots and shoot like 30% or worse. The fact is, we're not shooting well at all from 3, comments like that from Triano make me questions his sanity.

and one more question does Triano talk to his players in the lockerroom at the half. I see Stan Van Gundy doing it all the time but not Jay Triano. This team needs to be pampered by Jay Triano for our success and hes not doing a good job at that. He needs to stop assuming that things are going to get better. Theyre clearly not and everything needs to be changed including every single rotation.

even after three horrible shoting nights in 10 days, we're still 9th in the league --- we're a very good shooting team.

But regardless, I don't care how we shoot, turning down open 3s is not a wise idea. Turning down an open 3 for a contested 2 is downright stupid, and yet that's what we did many times tonight ...

This is the type of team that needs a kick in the pants once in awhile. If i'm the coach they're practicing hard tomorrow. The players were saying before the meeting that they were tired of hearing, "everything is gonna be alright". It's pretty clear that Triano is afraid to get in thei faces at all. Shit he's even said he doesn't talk to the players after the games, "because they know what they've done wrong and saying it isn't gonna help"

I don't think there's any question that he could be doing more.... but he's not the ONLY one to blame.

The players are playing without passion and they're missing shots that they SHOULD make.

What do you think the strength of this team is? Inside play or outside shooting? With players like Bargs, Hedo, Belli etc OF COURSE we're going to want to shoot 3s. That's our game. Those are the players that were brought in here.

If you have a problem with that then blame your golden boy GM.

I think you're fooling yourself if you think this team is not playing hard. They were very pumped for tonight, they wanted to revenge the loss. And we got blown again (not in a good way).

So here's the sad truth - this team as constructed, CANNOT defend better. Pointing at one player or another is useless. Take any player (except jose) and put in on the orlando team, and he'll not be a liability on D. But, as a team, there's no saving grace, and their weakness just gets compunded.

Well how do you explain putting your hand up half way when Mike Bibby throws a long range three pointer. How do you explain not putting a hand up on most of Joe Johnsons midrange jumpers. How would you explain giving Zaza Pachulia a free pass for a layup withou blocking the shit out of him. Thats a disgrace. Honestly put me on a team and I can play better D than that pathetic shit.

the main blame for this must be on colangelo - there's no question about it.
that being said, he's still a very good GM. He didn't have an easy job this summer, and there's no GM who could have done a better job with what we had.

I think asking for his head would be a major error. Even with the mistakes, he's clearly a very smart person, with a lot of clout in the GMs world. He's probably hated by some for his past success, and I'm sure more than a few are happy to see him fail - but anybody can make mistakes (see Portland, Detroit, NJ and San Antonio - four GMs who were considered elite, but made significant moves who didn't work out).
