Where ya got Chauncy now? Can we use injuries as an excuse?
Chauncey is doing good overall. Dealing constant injuries to key rotational guys snd we are still competitive every game.
Chauncey is coaching at almost every stop of action and seems to constantly be in the guts ears about things.
So far he is doing as good as could be expected in my opinion.
So injuries do make a difference.
Not only has it been on our mvp caliber player, but it stems the growth of continuity of having a consistent lineup.
Coaching can only make so much of a difference. The balance is the talent the coach has available to utilize.
We have been out playing most teams this season, with seemingly less talent on the floor, on average.
Our rotation players now are almost all dealing with nagging injuries.
Sharpe....fingers taped together
Jerami....both ankles taped up so they are basically immoveable
Justise....horrible case of the flu on the road trip
I forget what Josh is dealing with but the fact is we're dinged up.....not that other teams aren't but this is where we're at now
Keon hip pointer
Bump. Hate away
Coaching matters. Somehow Stotts, for all his warts (I’m a fan but not everyone is) got this franchise to 8 straight playoffs. Now we are looking at 2 straight (yeah last seasons tank job it’s still two straight). There’s more talent for what they are producing nightly.
when it comes to the regular season, Stotts teams generally overachieved. So far, even allowing for a half-season tank-job last year, Chauncey's teams have underachieved
Bring Ime Udokaon as a defensive coach. Somebody needs to give the man a second chance!
Not sure Ime could help this team but I'm open to trying about anything at this point.
