And this is Jameer's reaction to that.

We let a scrub in Amir look like Karl Malone.

I don't understand how we go AWAY from the scorers when we need points? we go through a scoring drought so we take out the scorers and put in McRoberts and Gustavo? Yeah they can get us buckets. Dunce cap going to coach on this one

Our team just isn't that good defensively to stop runs like this. And we're don't have consistent scoring to overcome droughts. Not surprising. Not really mad about any of this. Guys are playing hard. #SuckforShabazz

I guess no one told the players that if you press Calderon he's trash. Play loose on him he'll make the right decision every time.

That used to work when we had Dwight protecting the paint. We have no one that will pick him up once he drives.

Well, was about to write that. Jameer let him do whatever he wanted. And Jameer's shooting was pathetic. Plus those TO's when Raptors started to make the final run. Our 'general' sucked.

He doesn't drive so that point fails.

Yea too many times he gives up on BOTH sides of the ball if he misses a couple shots. We are bad and his effort seems to go into hero mode when we struggle. Most notably in this game was in the first half BBD missed a shot and then on the defensive side he went to try and weak double calderon and left ed davis wide open for a dunk. He just seems to get tunnel vision on both sides when we are struggling and it is so frustrating.

On a pick and roll he will penetrate if the big pretends to play defense like ours do.

This was 80% on Baby.

Didn't box out, didn't guard Amir at all. Took 16 seconds off the clock on one possession only TO DRIBBLE LIKE A POINT GUARD and get blocked by ANDREA BARGNANI.

Trade this clown.

Also, we switch and show on almost every possession because apparently we can't play man to man without double teaming? Or so I think, we don't even get to see.

I just wish he'd shoot less, and the other players take the shots he's taking. It's painful to look at the box score and see him leading the way in FGA.

On the bright side...+8 with Drew on the floor. Slowly but surely we need to get Davis out. Also really need to start playing Kyle. The only guy who can block a shot around the basket on this team.
