Losing me guy.... everything is the long ball... gonna wait til Kyrie and KD make it look like a great plan? No bueno

That’s why I’m cringing at the idea of giving him the job.

It won’t work and we’re going to need more than a Rockets level offense identity to integrate and mesh KD’s post scoring at the 4 with Kyrie, Caris and Spencer with ball handling and scoring duties.

We should be a little more competitive than this. I just don’t get what we’re doing on defense. Are playing Zone? Are we playing Blitz action? Wtf are we doing?

I’ve seen and played more defense in NFL Blitz(game ref.) than I’ve seen from the NETs from the last two games thus far.... that’s not all personnel.... there’s a coaching fingerprint in that... idk the whole staff is inept perhaps.... might need a clean rinse TBH

Great hustle by Allen....

Toronto without Lowry n FVV(majority of the first half) could score 80 pts still....

That’s terrible....

I agree but even a Pop coached team stay true to principals. I don’t see a consistency of it. It should stick regardless of who’s on the floor.

I don't think its any expectations of beating Raps, people are looking at the system and finding fundamental flaws tactically.

It’s not, but for a coach who wants the job, no excuse not to deliver better tactics or vision to beat/win the game. Especially in must win game 4 where it’s for the series.

Obviously we’re not talented but grit and competitive spirit knows no gap... it comes out regardless of the situation...

I really don't understand TLC's thought process on defense.

TLC shouldn’t be playing at the PF position. Again, huge mistake from Vaughn.

Not really.

He signed Beasley who contracted the virus and he also has Kurucs who’s been misused for quite awhile now. It’s not on Marks decided to prepare Kurucs during scrimmages as a Center and then, refuse to use him when it matters.

It isn’t on Sean that Donta Hall can hardly get minutes against a team with multiple 6’10 bigs.

Poor coaching.

It's not gonna happen but we need to try and play bigger to somewhat compete. All the work we did to give Rodi confidence during the bubble is completely gone. He should be at PF then rotate down to backup C if we need him there.

Good to see LeVert playing aggressive. He was way too tentative last game. He's finally taking pull up 3s with confidence and attacking the rim.

I haven't really taken a deep dive into what Vaughn is running to be honest, but he was dealt a horrible hand.

Talent > tactics and vision. If KD and Kyrie are out there instead of Chiozza and Temple i doubt the focus would be on the coach.

Alright that's fair, but I still think that this is about talent and not anything specifically that Vaughn is doing.
