Suns just kill us. They’re big and long and when we can’t hit threes, we’re bad. KP and Doncic are playing worse than bad

But by all means, its Rick’s refusal to play a center who is limited to 15mpg

Seriously though, this is becoming ridiculous. It doesn't take a rocket surgeon to put Boban at the 5 with KP at the 4 to throw out a twin towers lineup that shuts down the painted area. But, but, but... ANALYTICS!!! But, but, but .... better be able to hit 3's consistently on average ABOVE 35%+ or just pack it up and take the "L".

RC should be proud of this pathetic bullshit. Why take the starters out? make their asses suffer through this.

Good thing is at least Porzingis won’t play much tonight. The bad thing is looked awful out there tonight. Luka looked like he took the night off too.

KP got absolutely waxxed all night on the glass and defensively and we're getting destroyed on the perimeter right now. It's just a lack of effort on D. Also Boban to shut down the paint has nothing to do with the 3 and layup analytic

But, it doesn't matter Luka and KP are having bad games. Boban isn't going to make them magically good, but hopefully he gets burn in the 4th quarter since this is a blowout anyway.

Seriously, some games we just suck. What do you expect when out three starters all lay an egg?

It happens to every team.

At some point, I have to see why we paid so much for KP. I know it's coming, I just know it is.

I don't disagree, but as a coach, you have to be willing to throw different looks out there if for no other reason than to change the tempo. Hell, getting blown out like this is the perfect opportunity to be trying some different things now. Time for WCS to play the entire 4th qtr. This game is too far gone.

Not until they change his role on offense where he is more comfortable.

Are you guys creating new usernames just to bitch about RC? You guys know the mods can see your IP activity, right? (you know who you are)

I love Boban, but he doesn’t shut down the paint. Where did you get this idea from? Is it because he’s tall? He gets rebounds and buckets.

Guys playing off 3-point shooters as if their afraid to let them drive, who gives a f if they drive? No one is blocking out, not that they ever do, wide open shooters, this is just a mess. KP, wasted space of 7'3

I'd like to see WCS and Maxi paired for the majority of the 4th. Unnecessary to put more mileage on KP at this point, but let's get WCS some extended burn working with Maxi. That'll at least give us some more size in the paint.

Boban may not be the best defender but his size alone changes shots. Add KP on the floor at the same time and the overall defense improves, as well as the offense.

This.

We have no defensive centers. Kleber is our best defensive big. Boban is statistically our worst defender.

I agree about WCS and Porzingis. Time to pull the plug and let the new guy get some run.

Really? Go back and rewatch when he's in the middle, especially when he's paired with KP. Guards just don't venture into the paint. If they do, and they're smart, they dribble right back on out. No layup drills with the twin towers in the paint. Don't tell me you can't see the difference.

Edit: If the coach is a dumbass and doesn't go to a zone with them planted in the middle of the paint, and instead has them come up on the perimeter to guard pick-n-rolls, then for heaven's sake, don't be bitching about how they can't defend. That's the friggin coach's fault.

having them both in only works against certain lineups. this game makes no sense, KP can't keep up with any 4 the Suns are throwing out right now and Boban definitely couldn't. They've only really been paired one long stretch against the Lakers and that's when AD and Dwight were out there.

Nothing else does. Everyone here is grasping at straws. Might as well try it

They got away from us because of pathetic defense. Bad lineups definitely played a part as well. Cmon

having a center with strong presence in the paint can make a key difference on both ends of the floor, especially when you can't make 3s as your only offensive weapon.
i can't see how Rick's refusal to play the only legit center made any positive contribution to this ridiculously bad game.

I'm not talking about stats. I'm talking about players and what different pieces can do when they actually PLAY, not some generic number on a stat sheet.

I haven't seen any stats that show Boban is a bad defender. Unfortunately, he hasn't been on the floor often enough to appear on the 5-man roster stats on 82games.com.

Sorry, you’re right. 15 minutes of Boban would have made our defense functional, our offense functional, and we’d have won

I just don’t really think this is true. He’s never been a big rim protector over his career.
