How is Ross supposed to play well when if he makes one mistake he's benched for 10 games? He has to feel like he has the trust from the coach. Or atleast the rookie needs an opportunity to earn his trust back which he can't do if he only plays for 3 minutes or not at all. He completely killed his confidence and like I said wont give him an opportunity to earn his playing time.

I'm sick of this coach. I blame him for a lot. Gay wouldn't be nearly as inefficient if he would get some plays called for him besides ISO's. Ross would be playing. The offense wouldn't look like everybody pounding the ball into the floor and chucking up a contested shot. Jonas would also be playing more.

I thought this was a great quote I read in a Nazem Kadri thread on the main board:

Quote:
Confidence can do amazing things for a player that has skill.
Applies to Terrence Ross

No Rudy tonight. Bargs and Fields into the starting lineup, Amir to C, Jonas to the bench.

and did I hear Leo count Anderson as a good, positive bench contributor during the pre-game?

What the hell is wrong with the basketball world?

Anderson's last 10 games:

vs Ind: 14 points on 6-12 (0-4 from 3-point range)
@ Cle: 4 points on 2-5 (0-2 from 3pt)
vs Wsh: 4 pts on 0-4 (0-2 from 3pt)
vs NY: 4 pts on 1-8 (0-1 from 3pt)
vs Mem: 19 pts on 6-7 (4-5 from 3pt)
@ Wsh: 5 pts on 1-9 (1-5 from 3pt)
@ NY: 26 pts on 10-16 (6-8 from 3pt)
vs Den: 10 pts on 4-7 (2-3 from 3pt)
vs NO: 11 pts on 4-12 (1-2 from 3pt)
@ Ind: 0 pts on 0-1 (0-1 from 3pt)

Memphis game aside, he only scores when he cranks up a ton of shots and is successful from 3-point range. And except for the Pacers game in Indy, he never played less than 13 minutes and usually played 20+.

This is not "good". This is a chucker/volume scorer. This is the opposite of "good".

The starting 5 (Lowry, DeMar, Fields, Bargs, Amir) has played every minute of the 1st quarter up to this timeout with 50 seconds left.

Yep. That's smart. You're missing your top scorer, so obviously the thing to do is to completely gas your starters by leaving them out there for the whole quarter with no rest. This surely will pay off in the 4th quarter.

The only reason he's playing over Ross is because he's old lol. Ridiculous that a scrub like AA gets better treated than our 8th overall pick

leo has a propensity to make inaccurate comments on players and teams. a reason why hate when he is doing the broadcast over jack, also i question how he became team canada's HC, i mean there has to be someone more qualified no? **** neme, go sign up i'd vote for you.

also, HOLD THE PHONE, why is bargs starting. i understand amir is better suited as PF but why couldn't gray start. he actually does good things on the court.

starting : lowry, DD, fields, amir, gray
bench : JL/telfair, ross, chucker, primo, val

Gray over Bargs? ew.

Bargs has struggled, but if he finds his game, he can put up 25 points.

We NEED to win this game. Bargnani is the best player on this team after Gay, even if he's been complete crap for months.

the Coach Casey mindset-

Anderson misses a shot: "Keep him out there. He'll shoot his way out of the slump. He's due to make a big shot."

Ross misses a shot: "Sit the **** down and keep your ass stapled to the bench, son."

With Gay out, they need some supporting frontcourt offence in the starting lineup (which, in theory, Primo provides if he gets his shot back). Put Bargs at the 4, slide Amir over to the 5, and then have Valanciunas go out on the 2nd unit with Chuck and Chuckier (Lucas and Anderson) to get some good minutes against weaker opposition. That is if the Chuckington twins ever decide to pass him the ball.

and meanwhile Telfair and Ross can stay on the bench for no apparent reason. Except maybe to keep Acy company.

Nem's boy Anderson just hit a clutch 3 ball

then makes a terrible shot selection and lets the Bucks grab the lead

**** off Anderson.. you're terrible

Fields is unreal tonight... we need Vally in.. we need to stop giving up so many defensive boards. jesus.

should be Raps ball.. nope, good call. Bucks ball.

I was about to scream at Anderson but it went in somehow

Oh my god Lowry.. seriously? The season riding on this game and you do that? **** you. I want Calderon back so bad. You ****ing suck.

DeRozen is a joke tonight.

It went in somehow though. I don't like him either but at least he's not putting forth a performance like Demar or Lowry. **** is Lowry horrible.

Did Lowry just put that in his own net?

He's garbage. Calderon is a warrior. Lowry is a prima-donna. Hate him so much. Now if he can hit a clutch 3, maybe I'll change my mind.

On a different note, I have no idea why we gave up like 5 offensive boards all game, and this quarter alone the Bucks have got about 10. Horrible.
