How did Kemba score 43? Isnt that the 3rd PG to recently score 40+ on our stout defense? I dont get it.
He is totally in a zone right now and didn't miss anything. He is also just too fast for anyone on our team. Surprisingly, Smart played some pretty good defense on him but it didn't matter.
Every game we have someone on the other team that just torches us. We just aren't that good. We are the 7 seed right now. Our effort last night was good. I liked the new rotations but our defense is not good if we can't stop a player from scoring 21 in the 4th quarter alone. I thought maybe they should have played Jaylen a little more at least defensively on Kemba to make him deal with more length but even that probably wouldn't have mattered. And because we had to spend so much attention and energy on Kemba, they were getting offensive rebounds and 2nd and 3rd opportunities on misses. And when 55 year old Tony Parker can torch us with two consecutive jumpers late in the 4th - it's over.
