Some good stuff on here........ I don't even watch the game/players that closely until later in the game. I am most interested in when and how Flip starts subbing. They were bad in the first, I don't know if it was from not playing for a while. While watching I was thinking Flip should have subbed earlier just to try and break the rut. The argument can be made though that maybe they needed some floor time to shake the cobwebs. If this were any type of back to back or 3 in 4 type situation, then I would be more upset if he left them in to rot. It is funny to me also to hear people get on Hayes for his D. Stuckey can come in and commit 3 fouls in a minute and peole will parise him. What also impressed me is that Amir was kind of invisible when he first came in the game. Flip stuck with him and he started manking an impact. The develpment of players is a hot topic around here. For the most part you either got it or you don't. AJ is the one guy where PT will help him with the little things like sliding/moving his feet. If he can do that it would help them a lot with the Nocioni's of the world who have caused some problems for them. Hopefully, it is the little things going forward. Cut Rip's minutes, stop playing some dudes for 18 minutes straight. P.S. Perhaps the biggest miracle is that Flip didn't play Sheed for the entire 3rd quarter up to the 4 minute mark of the 4th because he was hot.
