    McHale made a big mistake first not putting real PG on the floor for too long, then he blamed young guys had too many TOs. How long takes him to know TD is a shooting guard without PG's mentality? :mad:

    He is mad because he still did not realize his mistakes.

    Both coaches fall in love with TD not Lin.

    He fumbled trying because he thought he could do a better job than Douglas. He doesn't trust Douglas's facilitation or handles.

    Well said. I think the coaches do not have a good sense of the fluidity in a game in which each player feels comfortable and is more likely to excel. It's like they only see trees instead of the forest.

    McHale: the guys made too many turnovers and didn't move the ball well
    McHale: let's keep the point guard on the bench when he's having a great game

    I don't know what everyone is complaining about, this sure beats watching a Kubiak interview after a Texans loss where he takes responsibility for everything from Lindbergh's baby being kidnapped to the Kennedy assassination. "That's on me", blah, blah, blah. I'd rather see the players get called out.

    But a PG is just supposed to give the ball to Harden. Duhh.......

    from this video, does it look like he understands that maybe this loss has something to do with his rotation?

    its his fault that we lost. he sat lin and harden for long stretches while he had a huge lead and instead of building on that lead while already giving harden and lin rest, he let the lead dwindle and the nuggets take control of the momentum and the game.

    horrible coaching job by mchale. he might have invaluable championship experience and he is a atg great player himself, but i feel mchale does not have the strategic cerebral coaching mind needed to win an nba title.

    McHale: I thought Jeremy did a horrible job of sitting on the bench and not contributing to the game.

    McFail doesn't realise that his small-ball in the 4th quarter is the reason Rockets lose a lot of games. Hasn't noticed that when Asik is out teams feast on our boards and/ or create a lay-up line to the basket.

    McFail doesn't realise that by subbing out his starting PG for excessive stretches of games causes the offense to stagnate.

    McFail doesn't realise that Harden isn't Lebron James and can't be expected to do everything for 40 minutes a game.

    McFail doesn't realise that defense requires understanding of each other, so he makes random dumb ass rotations which causes players to get confused and miss assignments.

    Good job McFail.

    I hope McHale was so angry in the video because he knew deep down he screwed up last night. Would have loved to hear him man up and admit he killed momentum with head scratching rotation moves at end of 3rd Q but oh well. It's games like last night that show McHale has low coaching IQ.

    You know I'm tired of all the McFail talk
    Play the reserve players
    Send a message to the starters.
    Otherwise the players stop playing for the coach

    Come on, he's got the team at a better record than I ever expected at this point in the season. If you had your dream coach coaching this group, how many more wins do you think we would have?

    You can't be serious right? That's what you're supposed to do when you have a decent lead. You rest your starters so they can get a breather.

    I prefer McHale being pissed to Kubiak's typical garbage. So at least he's emotional and admitting there is a problem.
