    Mike D doesnt believe in adjustments.

    He trusts the process until he gets booted from the playoffs.

    Get used to it by now lol

    Hope that fraud is fired soon. A regular season coach paired with a regular season player. It's going to be unbearable to watch the f*cking Bucks win it all...

    I heard a while ago that the number one sign of a great coach is the ability to make in-game adjustments, like a grand chessmaster, countering opponent's moves as quickly as possible. When you have a dummy as a coach, that ain't happening.

    If the Jazz are getting away with illegal defense, than have Clint camp in the paint doing the same thing and stop switching him to the perimeter which only accomplishes getting Capella even more winded and having absolutely no defensive presence in the paint while also having no defensive rebounding.


    These are the things that MDA doesn't pick in a game and it's absurdly pathetic for a NBA level head coach not to pick up something so obvious and change his game plan

    All I want is a time out
    Maybe just to cool the other team down

    I’m not asking for him to change into Van Grundy

    You should watch the Spurs Suns playoff games from back in the days.

    Popovich used to completely out-coach him.

    Pop would control the tempo of the game with his timeout and would make in game adjustments to keep Suns offense in check.

    Which is why Mike never won a playoff series against Pop.

    You guys really lose yourselves when Rocket lose. Rockets win 3 straight and not a peep from you guys.

    That was the most frustrating thing about this loss. I know, I know, it’s just one loss but I didn’t see one adjustment other than when he went to his small lineup. Utah Owned the 4th quarter because we couldn’t grab a damn rebound and they were getting point after point inside the paint. I still don’t understand why Nene isn’t being used. He’s the one guy with the muscle that can keep their bigs off the boards. Capela is just getting pushed around by Favors and Gobert and he’s useless if he can’t get the lob pass from Harden.

    Capella also gets switched a lot and gets stuck at the perimeter when he should be always near the paint.

    In game adjustments
    When you start losing
    You need to make adjustments

    Change personnel, call time out . Etc

    No brah this is the truth .

    here's another gem for all the MDA fans out there.

    https://lakeshowlife.com/2014/05/07/jalen-rose-mike-dantoni-doesnt-prepare/

    "I played for the Phoenix Suns. 2007. My last season. As were playing against the San Antonio Spurs. And I remember us coming to our first practice before Game 1. And we brought it in. And we were excited about our playoffs getting started. And Coach D'Antoni put in some film.

    I'm like "ooh, ooh, ooh, hey coach. I gotta ask a question. Are we going to talk about how we're going to defend Tim Duncan on the post? Are we going to talk about Manu Ginobili in pick and roll? Keeping Tony Parker out of the paint?"

    He looked at me in front of the entire team and coaching staff and said: "We're not worried about what they do. If we play to the best of our abilities, and do what we're supposed to do, there is no way they can beat us. We don't mind if Tim goes off. If Tim goes off, that means everybody else is quiet."

    So, people gave us a pass. And we were a great team. And Robert Horry did knock my guy Steve Nash into the scoreboard. And Amare Stoudemire and Boris Diaw got up off the bench and I should have been paying attention and being a vet, and grabbed Amare -- maybe I'd have a ring to this day."

    if the league was so confident that mike is a terrible coach. why send tony brothers to ref this game

    also i know you are a hakeem only fan and want the rockets to lose, you are afraid of hardens dominance. Just be glad david stern was the commishner when hakeem played and not this players coddling cuck of a commishner in adam silver or hakeem would be ringless

    The simple minded posters here don’t understand

    You don’t make adjustments when you are winning you do it when you are facing adversity

    The last time I checked as Nipsey Hussle would say

    MIke DAntoni has never won title as a coach in the nba

    Listen simpleton

    I didn’t say he is a bad coach

    I said he doesn’t make adjustments

    If you put words in my mouth I can do the same to you

    So step off
