Parker calls for balance

Quote:
Parker's answer to what can cure the stagnant, mostly one-man fourth-quarter offence the Raptors have put on display in back-to-back losses?

"I think it's a balance between T.J. running that high screen and roll but also mixing it up and trying to get some movement," Parker said. "From a defensive standpoint it's easy when you know what is coming and you don't have to move around. We can get the same kind of looks but maybe after some motion and things like that and then every- one feels like they are part of the offence. I think in a lot of those cases we would get better looks."

"We just have to find a balance of T.J. being able to do what he does," Parker said. "He did a lot of good things. He got to the basket. He got to the free throw line. But I think we can make it a little bit easier for him."

Sam pleased with Parker

Quote:
Parker, who sits fifth overall in the league in three-point field goal percentage, is driving the basket with increasing regularity and it's opening up things for both him and his teammates.

In the absence of Chris Bosh, Parker has become a go-to guy in the offence, scoring 20 or more in the past three games and averaging 20.2 over his past eight. He's also shooting just shy of 56% from the field, and 50% from three-point range over that span.




Fourth-quarter issues proving costly for Raptors

Quote:
The effect of all that standing around as Ford pokes and probes the defence more likely to end up taking a shot himself rather than spotting an open teammate is detrimental.

It is simply human nature to let inactivity affect effort, and minds wander when there is nothing to do.

"That shouldn't be the case but I think, just being honest and realistic, it's human nature," said Parker.




The fourth quarter Ford show

Quote:
Ford has lifted 22 shots in the past two fourth quarters, making 10 and scoring a combined 27 points. He has made some circus shots, got to the free-throw line, and been the offensive catalyst.

But his success has also come with a price. Other players are not factoring in during those critical late possessions, and the ball is not moving.

Thanks Hoops.

So, is Sam alluding to Ford needing to share the ball more with his teammates instead of trying to take things over himself late in games?

I find it very telling that a guy like Parker decided to speak "around" it publicly. Means they are talking about it house, but are not getting any results...he was very careful with his words, hes a pro...but I dont think it is a good sign....someone should aask Primo what he thinks.
