    Iso ball and weak bench performance is a direct correlation. Guys coming in cold without time to get a rhythm going shouldn't be "involved" with only 3 seconds left on shot clock. How many damn 24 second violations last night.

    Yes the bench needs to be average, but you have to include them in the passing and movement. Can't expect a guy to stand still with a defender who gets to chill and then knock down a contested shot with time expiring. No how, no way.

    Also i wasn't feeling the post game presser from James and CP. Not 'remembering' instances from game. Not wanting dialogue. "What? What do you expect" just seemed contrived and bothered to be there.

    I respectfully disagree here, if you followed Dantoni's Suns they most certainly were built for it, their offense worked, it was their defense and ALOT OF INJURIES that prevented them from advancing past teams that evenutally either won the chip or went to the finals.

    As for right now, play style has been working this whole time. We are in the WCF. Won the first two rounds in 5 games. We are just facing one of the most talented teams of all time. Lets not be unfair here.

    Possibly true. We definitely over-ISO'd.

    But ISO can't be to blame for missing open shots.

    Yet both are stronger than Durant.

    If we take the next two that would be shocking. I really want harden to score 25 and keep the ball moving. He killed the momentum dribbling the clock down then passing to a bad shooter with 5 seconds left on the shot clock. He can’t keep doing that

    I don't like Marcus Smart but sure wish we had a guy like him. When Thugmond Green pushed Jimmy someone should have been all over him but no one came to defend Jimmy.
