@Bry Bry She's true to her brand.
@kiwi_thunder @Jax Raging Bile Duct I think it's lack of focus. Or maybe you can call it distractions. Three major lineup changes over the last two weeks have increased the number of things each guy has to be aware of, and they're letting their defense be the thing they don't focus on.
@kiwi_thunder I struggle with this only because if the non-thabo, non-perk players on the court can give good defensive effort while thabo and perk are on the floor, then they can give good effort when those two are not on the floor.
It's not a matter of forgetting schemes. Maybe it's a matter of communication. But what I see is poor effort. That's not a thabo/perk issue.
And I realize the guys replacing thabo and perk are not as familiar with the schemes, and that other starters have a bigger role on defense that they usually depend on thabo/perk for. But again, it's the effort I'm not seeing.
@f5alcon @GlendaGonzales My only real gripe about his choices last night was that Serge and Nick were not able to defend either of the Morris twins. Serge would do poorly, then Nick would come in and do poorly, then Serge, then Nick.
I would hope that in a series that if Serge and Nick didn't show any ability to adjust, that Brooks would adjust them out of the lineup. Hard to blame him on the basis of one game though. Gotta give your guys a chance at least, can't pull them after one bad play. Just so happened that both our guys were unable to make a dent in the Morris twin's game.
Same deal with guarding Green. No one we used to defend him had much success, not even KD.
@f5alcon @Stephen Jackson is not about this spelling I think his defense is best suited for a half court game at this stage of his career. Probably will be more obvious in the playoffs when the game slows down a bit.

@Bry Bry @Jax Raging Bile Duct The PJIII faction has an argument with this chart. Although it doesn't say anything about having to sit him because of his fouls. Even though you can't find anything PJIII did in the box-score, the suns went on their big runs while he was on the bench.
One game is NOISY though.
@Bry Bry @Jax Raging Bile Duct A few of us do from time to time. But it takes a few minutes to fully absorb the data in these charts, especially going from game to game. Your average poster doesn't have the real interest.

@OKC_Gooner Long story short, you can either blame Alaska or Jooseppi.
@OKC_Gooner Last thread. Scroll some.
@OKC035 That's a really good find.
