Of course it Docs fault that Ray didnt shoot more. He is the coach lol. You gotta run like 3 or 4 touches right at the start of the 2nd. He might have gone off for 50 and a win for the Celtics.
Well he didnt get the ball. Whats your point?? He scored 18 points in the first quater and how many shot attempts in the 2nd before he went out?? They went away from him and the offense sputtered until House went off in the third. If someones hot like that you like to get him some touches insteand we get Powe going vs Martin in the post and Baby shooting 15 foot jumpers.
and its doc's fault ray didn't shoot? he had plenty of contested looks he passed on, if you wanted him to shoot those.
do you honestly think that doc tells them who should shoot on a play by play basis?
The Pg calls the plays most of the time, and most plays have 3-4 options based on who's open.
this isn't a video game, doc doesnt hit the x button once ray has the ball and he shoots.
also, so far you've bashed doc for taking him out, which didn't happen, and for "making him not shoot" which im quite sure didn't happen.
Isn't it more likely (and what actually happened) that the nuggets were tired of getting killed by ray allen, switched billups, thier best defensive player onto him in the second quarter and beyond, and denied him the ball forcing others to carry the offensive load(which they didn't do well)?
but, i mean, facts are crazy sometimes.
