Okay, I don't have any beef against one of Posey or Solo in, but this is bound to get ugly down low with both of them. Granted, Dallas has Cardinal and Chandler definitely no world beaters.

SO just exactly what was that offensive foul called on Danny in the first qtr that broughth him out of the game? Was it cause he brought his forearm up? Cause clearly the defender was moving. I mean he was back pedaling from the half court line.

Ok, I know this is sacreligious, and I am going to be on about 20 people's ignore list, but George's defense leaves much to be desired. He does real good on offense, and has a lot of promise, but his focus is lacking a bit on that end.

Pretty good half, aside from our last two possessions. That was just a really dumb shot by Dunleavy, he's not Ray Allen...and Granger has to shoot the ball there.

Nah, i don't think that's a very big deal. He's getting the minutes, he's getting the touches, he's just not executing. He knows it's on him.

But what about yankin him in and out the lineup, changing the players around him, the fluctuation in minutes

Do you think his problems are mental or he has regressed or not that talented?

To me his problems scream some kind of mental aspect to the game

Jim just couldn't wait to put Posey in for Tyler and for whatever reason, Solo too.

Tyler's kinda been non existent tonight

That's because he has hardly played. He obviously worried Rick Carlisle b/c he started Alexis Ajinca and his 7'9 wingspan on him. Tyler didn't get a couple foul calls and O'Brien took him out.

Ajinca hasn't been back in so apparently his only job was to disrupt Hansbrough

Spacing the court is irrelevant compared to being able to run the offense.

Clearly Hibbert and Hans are the two who are behind.

The team is playing better with a smaller dose of both of them. I just hope Jim doesn't bench them because that would be mistake.

Props go to Jim though. Even though I don't like his system, I think he's found the best mix of players for it. Just a hint though. McRoberts can operate in his offense as well.
