    Not true... Brewer has the basketball IQ of Gomer Pyle, but he does play defense...

    You forgot Ariza driving to the basket or in any sort of pick n roll with Dwight. For the life of me I can't understand why we continue to use Ariza in a ballhandling role. Ariza CAN'T DRIBBLE. Every time Ariza does anything but shoot corner 3's we suck.

    All that may be true. But we are still much better off with Harden checking Piece than Redick. Redick got 40 off us. Harden simply can't check him. He should have never been on him for even a single possession. Harden could check Pierce. He could wake up and guard Pierce. He has no chance against Redick.

    The post could be summarized in two words really....WASTED POSSESSIONS!!

    Add to your post the Ariza pull up 3 in transition and dwight trying to get a fast break with stupid outlet passes...unless someone is wide open dont throw it.

    We are a very stupid basketball team and we will never take the next step unless that **** stops.

    The biggest problem is, its happening on both ends of the floor

    on Defense...Know who the hell your guarding, you cannot close on bamoute and leave redick open for a 3...that is just plain larceny

    Dwight shouldnt always go for a strip or a block....make your opponent shoot a tough shot while still keep you in position to get the rebound...his PnR D needs a ton of work too ...very slow and lethargic to react

    You have to match harden against the weakest offensive weopan every game , we know he has **** defense, now react to it instead of letting him get burned

    Rotations on PnR Defense Pleaseeeee....i mean its too frustrating to watch easy dunks and layups everytime dwight has to help , for the love god show some fight for one another

    On offense......start taking advantage of matchups, iam sick of watching harden do everything even if an elite defender is on him....Dwight is a superstarr for crying out loud, he can dominate 20 of the 31 other centers in this league

    Stop having dwight at the top of the key doing dribble handoffs, it makes no sense
    Start the offense earlier in the shot clock so they can adjust if the first two options are shut down ....MORE MOVEMENT , the ball watching has to stop!!

    Coaching....I mean you would think by now you would know which players work with who, but JB has no freakin clue!!
    Put thornton and lawson with dwight always, thats a deadly PnR combo

    Bench Brewer and Jones for thornton and harrell

    Play KJ a little more because he specializes in something our team doesent have , DEFENSE!!

    i can go on and on.....sooo many problems with our team , and whats so sad is that it has nothing to do with talent..
