when matt bonner is driving by you and dunking, you know your d sucks. what's sad is he blew by wright who is supposed to be our best perimeter defender. so he's supposed to be able to stay in front of carmelo and kobe and lebron but he can't stay in front of matt freaking bonner?

Perfect example of how soft this team is.

Bargnani needs to put a hard foul on him there. If thats Howard or Garnett I gurantee Bonner is on the ground after getting a good hack. Look how much finesse Bonner just glides to the rim with. He knows no one on this team is going to challenge him.

There's no excuse for Antoine Wright letting him get by in the first place.

LMAO, it's funny how you think he's going to dunk it on two people in the second gif only for the defenders to be behind him.

You could see how he grins right before he dunks in the second gif. Probably grinning at the thought of the raptors D.

you're right with this one, wright was just killing us this game. i would have much preferred having weems in there instead of him, wright simply wasn't fast enough on any of his coverages, he kind of sauntered around. I think weems, being a much more athletic player could have recovered to cover the 3 point line a lot better, that is if he'd stop biting on the pump fake.

He blew by Wright because Wright was closing out on him from what I remember. We want contested twos, not open threes or lay-ups remember? Our team has extremely slow help D. They wait until it looks like they're going in for an open lay-up before moving in.

I'm not sure what our system's supposed to be, but generally I thought once your man gets beat, the help D rotates over..preventing the opponent from getting into the lane. The next closest defender rotates to make sure the guy who's left open doesn't get hit with a pass and the man who got beat either rotates back to his original man or to the remaining open man.

Basically, Wright closed out hard, but didn't have the legs to adjust for a drive and the help defense was non-existent. I remember when JO played with us, he got to his positions early..whereas our players are spectators until it's too late.

That was not a hard close out by Wright, it was just bad footwork. Bonner didn't even need a shot fake, he just drove to his strong hand and got there unimpeded. Not that the help D couldn't have been better, but I'm sure nobody was expecting to have to help on Matt Bonner when he has the ball out at the 3 point line.
