Who would have thought. A backup playing against backups to make them look better.
There isn't a single team in the league with a bench full of players that would be as effective if they became the starters. There might be one or two players here and there but the vast majority are backups for a reason.
They do well playing against each other, which is why they usually play against each other.
You must not read the entire thread.
No, Ive read the entire thread and I watched the entire game. My point is that he's not a starter. He's a bench player. Of course he's going to look better, against bench players.
If you need someone to admit that, then we can also admit other known facts. The sun is hot. Grass is green. It's a universal truth, which is why they're bench players, and not starters.
It's not a knock on AJ's defense. It's a compliment to how good GH is. I would have hoped that Frank was smart enough to put a well above average defender on the best player instead of an average defender.
I expected them to play Hill at the point on defense, it was a surprise when they didn't cover up Lance, especially when George Hill is undersized at the two.
People aren't saying AJ played a good game for defensive purposes, just like hardly any one knocks on Lance for defensive purposes.
It's the difference in how they run the offense, and the difference is easily noticeable.
Dahntay Jones played some offense last night without needing the ball.
We haven't really seen that since he's been with the Pacers but that's how he played with the Nuggets. He's a very capable passer and we saw a little bit of that last night. He deserves playing time if he's going to play like that.
He's not Steve Nash, but compared to what we're used to, it almost feels like it.
can we close this thread. We all know Boston is one of the worst teams in the East already. No need to degrade them any longer. Feel sorry for them.
