Let Them Have It


I am talking about the other teams PF Or C having what they want. Let them have the 20-30 Point games with10+ Rebounds.

The last time I checked Basketball was a team sport and no one person can beat a team. (Except Kobe Dropping 81 on a team and some such miracle)

One of the main reason for our losses has been that THE OTHERS have torched us. By the others I do not mean the usual suspects like a Derrick Rose / Kobe Bryant / Manu kind of player.

These are the kind of players that will have theirs and there is no avoiding that. The only thing you can hope for is that they do not torch our Suns for 50+ Points.

 

Also, big guys like Pau / Duncan will get their share. It's time to man up and play One on One D. All the Weak Side Help / double teams are leaving THE OTHERS open.

Like it or Not, these are NBA Players and they will score when left open. I shall now look at the stats and break them into With Rolo and After Rolo

With Rolo

Game 1 - Portland Trailblazers - L 92-106 - Nicholas freakin Batum scores 19 Points with 11 Rebounds. He has double-double to start the season ???? Nicholas Who ????

Honorary mention in this game for W.Matthews who has 13Points 6Rebounds and 3 assists. Again a part of the Others. Roy Scored 24 W/6assists. But with the sheer volume of shots he takes, he will score.

THE OTHERS cost us this game.

+1 to the Others

Game 2 - Utah Jazz - W 110-94 - What can I say ? None of the OTHERS did much and Deron did not have a great game. We Win. AK47 + Millsap with 19Points / Jefferson with 20 Points & D-Will had 13Pts.. These are good NBA players and they will score.

THE OTHERS don't come to Party - We Win

Game 3 - Los Angeles Lakers - L - 106-114 - Tough loss - Kobe contained (25Pts)/ Pau Contained (21Pts) / Odom not so much (18Pts + 17 Rebounds). I will give this one to Star players. Who is not a Star Player on this team ???? Hon Mention - Artest with 14Pts + Fisher / Blake with 11 each.

Stars +1

Game 4 - San Antonio Spurs - L 110-112 - Tim Duncan leads with 25Pts + 17 Rebounds.

Stars + 1

Game 5 - Grizzlies - W - 118-123 - Double OT game therefore stats are inflated. OJ Mayo / Gasol / Gay score 20+. The rest, not so much.

THE OTHERS don't come to Party - We Win

Game 6 - Atlanta W - 118-114 - The Usual Suspects Torch the team - J.johnson W/34Pts - Horford W/30Pts + 10 Boards - J.Smith W/19Pts. the rest not so much.Bibby / J.Teague / J.Crawford / J. Powell - Score 29 Points in a combined 88 Minutes of Play.

THE OTHERS don't come to Party - We Win

Game 7 - Memphis - L 99-109 - Z-Rand + R.Gay played well and won the game for them.

Stars + 1

Game 8 - Sacremento Kings - W - 89-103 - T.Evans W/18Pts + 9Assists. The rest are nothing to talk much about.

THE OTHERS don't come to Party - We Win

Game 9 - Los Angeles Lakers - W-121-116 - It took some magic to win this one and this is the game ROLO got hurt. We know HOW we won this game. Kobe / Pau / Odom scored 75 of the lakers 116 points. Fisher / Artest - Combined for 19PTS.

THE OTHERS don't come to Party - We Win

Without ROLO

Game 10 - Denver - W - 100-94 - Low Scoring game where THE OTHERS played well, but we still managed to pull out a W. Aflalo / Hilario / Harrington - Combined scored 43 Pts.

THE OTHERS Party - We Win

Game 11 - Miami Heat - L - 96-123 - Chris Bosh happened. He was having a Sub-par season thus far. He Scores 35 and E.House Scores 15. Until now, he had been performing like THE OTHERS. And since I am a little biased. I am going to say

THE OTHERS cost us this game.

+1 to the Others

Game 12 - Orlando Magic L - 89-105 - Everybody played Well for the Magic. If they had not played well, I think we would have still lost.(I Think). ALL Starter + Pietrus in Double Figures. D-Howard scores 20 with ONLY 12 Rebounds. I will call it on the OTHERS.

THE OTHERS cost us this game.

+1 to the Others

Game 13 - Charlotte Bobcats - L - 123-105 - This one was BAD. S.Jackson has Triple Double, but the more important story here is Diaw with 26Pts + 06Assists / DJ Augustin Scores 16Pts / T.Thomas Scores 22Pts. I am putting this one on the Others Too.

THE OTHERS cost us this game.

+1 to the Others

Game 14 - Houston Rockets - W - 123-116 - Everybody from Houston came to the party and they still managed to lose. High Scoring game again.

THE OTHERS Party - We Win

Game 15 - Chicago Bulls - L- 123-115 - Double OT Game, therefore some Nos are inflated. The 2 Bulls Stars Scored. Deng is a fringe star and he scored 26Pts. Korver With 24Pts and J.Johnson with 12

THE OTHERS cost us this game.

+1 to the Others

Game 16 - Los Angeles Clippers - Ryan Gomes and B.Cook with 36 points and we still manage to win. Thsi is the Clippers we are talking about. So, no points to anybody.

THE OTHERS Party - We Win

Game 17 - Denver Nuggets - Another High Scoring affair. JR Smith explodes for 30, but I would consider him a star. The plot line is Aflalo / T.Lawson / G.Forbes / S.Williams / N.Hilario scoring a combined 71 Points.

THE OTHERS cost us this game.

+1 to the Others

 

Before Rolo

Won 05 Games where the other’s did not play well. (Jazz / Hawks / Grizzlies / Kings / Lakers)

Lost 01 Game when the OTHERS played well with the stars (Trailblazers)

Lost 03 Games when their stars played well. (Lakers / Spurs / Grizzlies)

After Rolo -

03 Games the OTHER played well and we still won. (Houston / LA Clippers / Denver)

05 Games the others played well with the stars and we lost. (Maimi / Bobcats / Magic / Chicago / Denver)

Rolo was injured in Game 9.  Which is pretty much the half-way mark.

In Summary :-

We can contain the OTHERS with ROLO Prowling the paint as the team can guard better on the perimeter without double teaming OR Weak side help when the ball is in the post.

Some Games the Stars will play well and ther is nothing you can do about it, except hope to get them fatigued.

We can still pull of a few wins when the OTHERS play well with the stars. But it can only happen against the weaker teams like the Clippers / Rockets where the stars are not as dominant.

I believe that we need to stop out helter skelter defense / doubling in the post, because if the OTHERS don't go off, we still have a chance. Not all teams have dominant stars like the Kobe's / LeBron's Or Dwade & Duncan's.
