Default Second Half Offensive Droughts Losing us Games

I have noticed that during this now 4 game winning streak we stop scoring in the second half of the game. Whether it be the 3ed or 4th quarter we just go on these huge droughtsshooting say 6/28 barely scoring and allowing the other team to score a shit load of points to basicaly win. How can a team with so much "offensive Firepower" continue going through these scoreless final quarters. Like we go an entire quarter shooting complete bricks and for what i remember against the suns we went on like an 8 min scorless 3ed quarter. Anyone else noticed this trend?

*could it be that Bosh is getting so many touches that no one else has a change to get grooving?

Yes...the offence has struggled lately. Bosh is only averaging about 21 for the past bunch of games and the others (minus Jack) have been inconsistant but it's still mostly to do with defense. Lots of teams win by only scoring 100 points. The passion and commitment to defend just hasn't been there consistantly for this team.

We won't win squat with Jack playing the 2 and with Bosh having crazy glue on his hands. Triano's mind set has to change.It really bothers me that guys come to our team and just because they were used a certain way on their previous team that it will automatically work for us. i.e Jack playing at the 2 big shit he gets his points, just look at what its doing to the rest on the floor. Look at Bosh the guy is having a great year so far stats wise.He can even be that much better and help the team be more deadly if he would just kick the ball out and let the ball move.The key to Hedos game is Bosh. If Bosh just keeps his defenders honest it would give Hedo some better looks to drive and for his shot. With the ball sticking in Boshes hands I find that Hedo is forcing alot of shit making him look pretty bad so far this year.

Bosh needs to re-learn how to pass. double-team doesnt mean flail into them and hope for a call.

But he wants his 20-10 numbers so we can give him his max contract and trade him.

I really hate this Jose/Jack combo especially in the 4th quarter with the game on the line. Jack is very careless passing the ball and the turnover for the other team usually results in a fast-break uncontested dunk. Last night; three times in the 4th with the game on the line Jack came down and didn't look to involve his teammates and shot contested jumpers that didn't go in and with none of our guys even near the basket for a chance to rebound.

I also don't understand why Rasho routinely doesn't see any playing time in some games. He is much better at defense than most of the guys on this team. Wright seem to be a complete non-factor in games lately, we are getting nothing from him, not even decent defense.

So far not impressed with Hedo, Wright and Jack.

Jack should only be playing backup pg and that is all.

Washington, Charlotte and Memphis are not good teams, we should be able to beat those teams easily.

Where is this teams pride? I guess they don't fukin care because it is not their country's team.

Seriously.

If Hedo plays for Turkey again this summer he should be smacked. I don't care if your the "MJ of Turkey" you just signed a fat contract with the Raptors, there is no excuse for you not being ready to go in training camp come October.

Same goes for Jose, Bargs and Belli.

i agree. its not like hedo is the most athletic dude ever, so its not like hes subjecting his body to wear and tear on the same scale as a lot of players who have played as much as he has over the past year. hes lazy and needs to have his butt kicked by someone so he realises that effort will guide his talent to big numbers and wins.
