Arrow Koreen: Sunday was a nightmare for Jay Triano

Quote:
There is a compelling argument to make that Sunday night was Jay Triano's worst as the head coach of the Toronto Raptors.

In his first full year in charge, Triano struggled on and off the court.

On it, Triano's Raptors frittered away a 17-point lead, falling 97-94 to the Miami Heat. Billed (and entrenched) as an offensively gifted team with defensive shortcomings, the Raptors scored just two field goals in the final six minutes. One was a jumper from Sonny Weems, after a diagramed play. It was mostly lucky that the ball wound up in Weems' hands. The other was a desperation three-point shot from Jarrett Jack.

After the game, although point guard Jose Calderon stood by the shots the club took, star forward Chris Bosh said the offence went haywire.

"I don't think our spacing is correct right now and it makes it easy to continue to double," Bosh said, meaning that teams are able to focus more than usual on Bosh with the offence not functioning properly.

Things were even worse for Triano after the game, though. Whether he likes it or not, Triano is one of the key faces of the franchise, especially when it comes to espousing the direction of the club on a daily basis.

While always cordial and polite with reporters, Triano is guarded. And with two controversial storylines brewing, Triano seemed ill equipped to deal with both.

Chris Bosh leaving our team with nothing but overpaid European players left. One such player will be skipping games, mid-game, to hang out or get drunk, for another 4 years.

I don't get how Bosh yelling at Jose to foul is a major issue. Just a lack of focus.

Sam would have handled both things easily. He would have said it was a coaches decision, and that it was between him and the player and the rest of the team, and that nobody else needs to know the reason for Hedo not playing. And with the call on whether to foul or not, he would have been off the bench yelling like a madman immediately, one way or another. Triano just keeps drifting. And yet he keeps getting so much slack. If he comes back for another year it will not say much for this franchise.

As you said before, the raps are behaving like young dogs without leashes... on their own agenda because he is not strict enough. Although I think they've already run away, with new owners lookin to pick them up ;D

+1 as for what should have happened. As for the foul, Jay should have said do no foul in the huddle, no one really screams out "do not foul from the bench" the other team would just hold the ball for the last possible chance leaving 1.0 on the clock.

Sorry to burst your bubble but we paid some prime prices plus their vet bills are ridiculous, we probably would have to put them down. *cough cough* looks at Hedo & Jose.

The decisions that Triano makes at important points of the game look like addng fuel to the fire. Timeouts are late, substitutions are not accounting for how well players play. And whatever he draws to play after timeouts, well its not working.
The players, BC, even Triano himself knows he is not up to the task. And it shows in the so called "chemistry". Rookie coach without signs of getting better.

Bosh saying "I'm good, but not that good to carry the team" is not helping either. He is not that kind of star to say this. He should be playing off others, not forcing stuff.
