    Need a Kobe type personality in here. Don't give a damn how much he is hated.

    Great analysis

    It's up to the coach to make adjustments and call timeouts

    Even Rec Leagues call timeout

    At least call it to give your guys a rest

    MDA only called 1 timeout in the quarter we lose 22pts lead.

    Call timeout for what? It's not like Tilman gets to save more money with more timeouts.

    Tilman or Morey needs to tell MDA to stop being so dumb again and again.

    Call a timeout for ****ing rest.

    We already know MDA has zero game plan in his stupid mind.

    Seems like only the Astros have good coaching cause the rockets and Texans have coaches who can’t adjust once things go off the rails

    He called a timeout when the lead was cut down to 14. Which left them with 4 timeout left for the rest of the game. What more do you want? Call another timeout and be left with 3 TOs for the rest of the game?

    You make it seem like he has unlimited TOs.

    Paul George and Dennis Schröder went off in the 3rd quarter, you can't do anything else about that.
    At some point, it's up to the players on the floor to do their job which is play better defense or score buckets. They did neither in that 3rd period.

    The up-tempo offense and the exaggerated tendency to pull three points (if you are going to insist on this is necessary to dominate the offensive rebounds) permanently expose this team to waste advantages in the scoreboard and to close the games badly.
    I understand that it is the MDA style, but you can not make the same mistakes over and over again.

    I wanted a time out before they cut the lead in half

    You can tell the momentum change in the game

    Rudy t, bill fitch , van gundy
    And rick would have called a timeout

    MDA use of timeouts is absolutely trash, but at the same time the reality is that players shouldn't need to be motivated to come back into the game playing like it's not already over, especially against another contender. I mean, i can understand a rebuilding team full of young guys like Atlanta, Phoenix etc, but we're a (supposed) contender filled with vetarans and guys over 30, if they still need to be motivated in these situations, we're in trouble.

    And just saying but, don't expect MDA to pull a Pop or even a McFail by benching guys or go hard at them cause he would end up like him, fired.

    Once Schroder went off on 4 possessions inarow he just kept sitting there and looking at the floor. You have to stop there momentum
