Well that was embarassing. Watching the team give up 120 points to the Spurs, 9 straight losses and a miserable 5-15 record means only one thing. Singletary for Head Coach!
Jokes aside Spurs deserve a bit of credit. They are a fundamental Basketball team with an Offense that creates smart Ball movement, unselfish player and open shots. The Warriors at the moment have none of those and the gulf was evident tonight. The Spurs have always been near the top at the West because of Great coaching. Excellent defense. Teamwork. Discipline. Nelson has failed to take any of these on board this year. In other words really with the Spurs and Warriors play it's always a mismatch.
Jackson did't play at all during the second half but then again when he is still doing the same thing over and over. I don't like the fact that he is still our number one offensive option even though Maggette and Crawford weren't exactly lightning it up either. He might be a good 3rd or 4th but not first.
Sticking with Maggette and Crawford neither bought anything to the table. Neither shot well from the floor, both were good at the Free throw line and neither knew how to pass the ball. Maggette went 1-10 from the field and 0 assists while Crawford went 2-5 with only 3 assists. I knew Maggette had a tendency to ignore his teammates but if you watch him play it's astounding.
I still don't get why fans have to tolerate the horrible sight of Maggette jacking up a horrible shot when Wright with his great inside moves, a monster dunk, and hustling hard on defense is easier on the eye. This year is all about the youngsters so it's peculiar seeing not getting the PT he is but then I lost trust in Nelson a while back.
In contrast Marco looks worthless. The hopt shot shooter out of the draft was 1-6 with 2 points and 1 assist and did little else on Defense. Last season I called on him a lot to get more playing time but Nelson saw something he didn't like and it looks as if he's correct.
So err I don't really have anything to describe from the debacle The only thing good about last night game's was that it wasn't like Monday's game against the Heat something which no fan wants to sit through again. The Spurs are a better team and thats fine. However against the Thunder a one win team a lot more could be on the line. If the Warriors find a way to lose well stay tuned for some possible drastic changes
