In response to shines01's comment:
James, granted, but this was sickening. Where was Rondo sending Mayo? What was Terry even doing out there? Why was Pierce handling the ball in the back court? What is Doc saying to them? I mean, seriously, how did those time-outs work? "OK, Brandon, I want you to in-bounds to Paul and then Paul, I want you to throw the ball off someone's back. Rajon, going forward, when you get the ball, instead of running the offense I want you to stand in one spot and drible for 17 seconds. And Jason, nice work on defense, remember to lean toward the sideline like a guy from an over 50 league who's never been coached whenever someone makes the corner and drives to the hoop...don't worry about the baskets, we can afford to let them score whenever they want. Oh, and Rajon, don't worry, it's only OJ Mayo, he's not much of a threat, just take all the chances you want"
im not saying it was pretty, but face the facts. NOONE IN THE ENTIRE LEAGUE has been able to stop OJ Mayo, so idk what you expected to see differently tonite. The guy has been on a tear. The ball movement WAS bad. Paul WAS sloppy and careless at times. But this is BASKETBALL. You will not, CAN NOT expect to see perfectly played basketball every night. Even good basketball every night. Teams lay duds. every single team will lay at least 5 or 6 duds this season, where they just didnt have anything going. The important thing is, we played HORRIBLE, yet come out of it with a W in the standings instead of an L.
Agree with ball movement bad. Rondo WAS like a statue at there on offense at times. About 5 times I thought there was a timeout when we were on offense. Nobody moving, Rondo standing in the same spot either dribbling or not, and yes Rondo WAS sloppy out there last nite as well. KG finally got a rebound after 61 minutes straight without. Yes I also agree a win is a win is a win. It sure was ugly.
