I remember plenty of BG boneheaded plays in the 4th. He cost us a game earlier in the streak with his stupid back to back turnovers and made a couple of der plays last night.
Gordon blew a dunk, Kemba missed a lay up, MKG missed 2 ft. Blames goes all around
How many times have you watched a Bobcat leave a shooter at the arc to double or triple the paint and thought "DON'T LEAVE HIM!! OHHHHH!!!
How many times have you watched a Bobcat sprint back at the shooter and do the MJ Jump Man leap right by him, missing the ball by about 4 feet? Doesn't look good on SportsCenter boys.
Is desperation defense something they work on in practice? "GENTLEMEN WE NEED QUICKER LEAPS AND BETTER EXTENSION ON YOUR RUN OUTS IF THIS SYSTEM IS GOING TO WORK!"
The Cats need to start learning from their mistakes you'd think huh.
The only thing I've noticed about the run outs by the defense are how slow they are. They just jog or shuffle their feet out to shooters instead of running them off the line.
Leaving shooters open to double down. Dunlap must have learned that one from Roy Williams smh
I guess we can say it's been a while since Ben Gordon's Bulls days but the 4th quarter was his bread and butter back then. As much as we've been losing with Sessions in the game instead of Gordon in the 4th quarter, I would much rather take a risk on BG making yet another careless turnover trying to be the scorer that he is than Sessions driving into a wall of defenders to get blocked time after time.
Anyway, I'm tired of this defense. Whether it's too much zone, overloading the strong side, slow rotations, or just lackadaisically leaving the 3-point shooters trying to help, I'm tired of it. Dunlap wasted almost all of the preseason preaching how he was teaching this team defense. Endless hours of practice primarily focused on defense, and yet still we have the worst defense in the league and probably headed for one of the worst in NBA history.
3 great perimeter defenders in Kemba, MKG, Hendo...and soon to be Tyrus. Dunlap should go man-to-man and use our personnel to our advantage.
