Re: What do we have to do to take out game 3?
I had to change the channel after we lost the lead on the 2nd game - I was also very upset, at the risk of breaking my tv.
TO's are killing us. Nash is making passes that his teammates are not ready - I saw a couple of around the back type passes that were missed by the recipient. Don't waste shot clocks.
Our bench players are missing shots - how can Barbosa go for 0 of 7 shooting. Hill also ended up with 0 points.
Amare and Shaq and everyone else has to drive to the boards even if it means the only way the make their points si from the foul line. Especially if Amare's midrange shooter is not dropping for him. Amare & Shaq must not get into early foul trouble and not get offensive fouls.
Our shooters need to show up and stay hot.
We need to win to get some confidence.
Game 3 our final stand. If I were the coach - once he has figured out who's hot - I will play them to the ground, and forget the scheduled breathers and rotation. If we don't win game 3 no way we're coming back to win 4 in a row against SA.
