    Amir was so gd gassed that he literally fell on his face trying to get back and fouled Richardson for the And-1 in the process. Just unbelievable.

    When you put it that way that is really upsetting to think about. Time to see if there is a Clippers Republic.

    Trade Calderon and bargnani so casey can no longer play them. Its like he wants to lose, "Valanciunas is playing too good so i think i won't put him in the 4th quarter. Oh and also i won't play T Ross cause he's a rookie but still a better defender than jose." Wtf is wrong with this guy? my grandmother could have made better subs, fuck this.

    Calderon's productivity on the offensive court ooutweighs that of his deficiencies on D. No need to go blaming him. He's going up against Holiday who's playing like an all-star. Is there a better backup PG in the league that's even close to Jose? I don't think so.

    I agree, Casey was out-coached by Doug Collins. By playing small, Philly managed to open up the court for Holiday who by the way, was very impressive. Some things I would have wanted to see ...

    (1) Take Jose off Holiday. This one is simple. Jose is slow footed and he has a hard time getting over screens. Lowry would have put more pressure on Jrue. Although Lowry had a pretty bad shooting night and looked a bit slower than usual (which is expected), his defense was pretty good, chasing guys off the screen.

    Leading to ...

    (2) Pick and roll coverage: With Lowry on Holiday, the big would not have to over commit on Holiday, which would help prevent the line drives. I would have also tried trapping Jrue off the pick, make another guy create. You can't let a guy walk into your defense knowing he has 3 campers and 1 roll man.

    (3) I would have taken Amir out very early in the fourth quarter. Ride the hot hand. It's not like Valanciunas is slow footed. He's actually a better match-up defensively than Bargnani.

    (4) I would have kept feeding it to Derozan in the post. He had a terrific 2nd half but they went away from him in the last 3 minutes.

    We got exposed hard today letting Calderon and Bargnani guard the pick and roll - then scrambling after to get to 3 designated campers.

    This one is tough ....

    It's like he has forgotten how to coach.

    I still have faith in the guy, but he needs to figure his shit out.

    Its another dumb loss cause of stupid adjustments. Had casey put on a lineup of

    Lowry
    DeRozan
    Maguire
    Amir
    JV

    we would've won

    I could see the matchup between Calderon and Holiday as a nightmare from a mile away. I have no idea why Lowry didn't start the game. I'm confident he would have done a better job at guarding Holiday. If Lowry loses his starting role again, after coming off injury, what message are we sending to him as a team that he should build a future with?

    i seriously hope so. Cause we're beginning to fall and if we lose tomorrows game we're free falling. We're digging ourselves a deep hole

    They didn't start him cause they were being cautious

    All i want to know is why he brings out a lineup of 2 pg's? That lineup sucks so hard.

    If I had a nickle for every time I read "trade Bargnani" from NoPropsneeded I'd have more money then Joe Johnson...

    I agree JV should have played more and that T Ross deserves more burn.

    +1 I agree with all 4 of your points.

    JV wouldve done a better job than Bargnani.

    Also, we did not NEED offense in the 4th, we needed Defense! Calderon shouldve been out and the line up shouldve OBVIOUSLY been:
    Lowry
    Ross/McGuire
    Demar
    Amir
    Val

    You play ross earlier in the 4th to see if he is in the mood to play Defense, if so you keep him in, otherwise DM would replace him and overall you have the most important things when maintaining a lead:
    Perimeter Defense
    Rebounding
    Slashing + foulshot making
    3pt desperation kickout
    and tall interior presence.
