We did have a lot of great defensive possessions this game. And the effort level was playoff caliber. The biggest difference is just that they stole our schtick. Their D is suffocating. I can respect that. I was pretty disappointed when we didn't respond better to the Perkins flagrant. Flagrant 2 and we only came out of that with 1 point net. Then got smoked on the next 4-5 possessions. Besides Max, I don't think our guys took it personally enough. That was a disrespectful foul. One other thing that I couldn't help thinking during the game watching Stuck on a couple different defensive stands- he has the tools to be a spectacular defender... like Jason Kidd-esque. He's tall, strong, quick, and has a workman-like attitude. Why can't he be a top 3 defensive PG in 3 years?
