That's just too high. He's in there mixing it up inside hard for rebounds. He's trying to baptize centers and put them on posters. He went to the FT line 12 times last game.
It feels like he's been our best scorer, playmaker, and defender - and he's probably hustling the most. If Nash isn't willing to hold him back - this might work.
Nash has been over-utilizing KD as a security blanket instead of doing his job and making the proper in-game adjustments. I hate that we're losing Kevin in a moment when we're already struggling, but as a coach you simply cannot allow your team to perform the easy we have with defensive rebounding and turnovers. I mean, this is the Patron Saint of Passing, and he's allowing us to throw these errant, underhanded passes without any sort of correction?
Durant's absence means we're taking off the training wheels for Nash. A below average coach should not go 0-4 in this stretch, not with the remaining talent on this roster. Show me what you got, MVP.
