QueenBee, sweety. I remember VERY well that I pointed out that CP didn't look right even in the WINS because of the way he was playing. I've said he's looked hesitant SINCE the Houston game. I really think he's got a mental block. I think he's terrified to get hurt again and watch the season be basically over if he did for a big chunk. Especially since he sees so much potential with this team. I don't think he's hurt. I see the explosion still there. Some of it came out against DWill. But I see more hesitancy than explosion. Again, I only see this because I personally KNOW it. I know Jack hasn't had very much time to jell with this team, but the more I see from him, the more I preferred Bayless. I got reamed for not liking the trade, but last night was a night that Jack SHOULD have shown his worth playing against a PREMIER back up PG in Hill. Even if he hasn't learned the offense, did you see his defense? Instead Monty went with Green down the stretch because Jack struggled to play off the ball when NOH went small. But the more I think about it, the more I'm starting to wonder if we got Jack to just trade him. Maybe he will be the key to a Melo, Captain Jack, or Iggy swap? Lets wait and see. Lastly. This is a little out there. But a new name struck me yesterday. Anyone notice that Hedo Turkuglu has been coming off the bench for the suns lately? He's struggled to fit on the team because the team has sooo many ball handlers and distributors and creators. Hm. Isn't that something we're lacking right now? His shooting, passing, and creating would be an AWESOME fit on this team, and the guy is actually a SOLID defender who likes taking on big matchups like Melo, James, and Kobe. Something to consider, I guess.
Ziko, care to pull together some data from the boxscores from the 4 wins up to and including Houston (since I think you are focusing on this due to the `tweak' Chris had at the end of the game; correct me if wrong), the 8 wins after Houston (or maybe the 4 `worst' as well), and the 4 losses? I'd like to see that. BeesGivingEffort has been saying Chris hasn't been right and I think at least the 3 of us would like to see if we see it in the numbers or if we need to pick out particular plays or perhaps play selection by Chris to get deeper into this. We could get the OKC numbers, too, but it'd be really nice to have this going into the game so we can look tonight. Of course, we can see more Wednesday (at least I can) since I can choose what to look it with binoculars in the Arena and won't have to be limited to what Cox shows tonight (alot, but not all). I fully admit that we may not `see the injury in the numbers.' If we do, great. If not, we need to know what to look for. Right?
