I was ready to throw something at the TV when he called the TO, and just about did when G-League Raul was inserted and proceeded to get roasted on three straight trips by Fox.
The Sixers were ready to close them out, and Brett kept them in the game with the timeout and substitutions. You can't make it up.
That stretch sucked but we had to fill 3 rotation spots last night...who were you expecting Brett to play? My only quibble was playing Pelle over KOQ, but he was likely just trying to get the guy minutes since we were up a bunch and he's barely played the last month. He pulled Pelle after a disastrous 2.5 minutes and didn't play him the rest of the game.
Neto had a good game overall and it seems like Brett's decision to play him was justified. If you're complaining after we won by 17 in a game we were 5.5 point underdogs, you're just a hater.
First, please stop with the "hater" idiocy. Who's complaining? If we can't have discussions here other than waving pom-poms, then what the f***k is the point of a forum designed for fan interaction?
To address your point, I understand rotations, but I also understand that you don't slam on the brakes when you're about to run the other team out of the building with a TO and mass substitutions. That move essentially lengthened the game.
Neto was fine, but he doesn't belong on an NBA roster that isn't a lottery team.
