MIAMI -- Detroit Pistons coach Lawrence Frank, asked why he didn't put two of his better 3-point shooters in the game for a final shot in Wednesday's 85-82 loss at Chicago, said the second-half inactivity of Austin Daye and Charlie Villanueva left him reluctant to use them.
Frank made the remarks at today's shootaround before a 7:30 p.m. game against the Miami Heat.
"That was just more rhythm," he said. "If I had played Charlie and Austin in the second half, I would've had them both out there. In fairness, if I would have played Austin and Charlie, I probably would have. But to throw them out there, I just didn't feel good."
The Pistons ended up getting two good looks at 3-pointers in the final seconds but Tayshaun Prince and Rodney Stuckey both missed. Greg Monroe and Jason Maxiell were in the game for screening purposes, Frank said.
"Just didn't feel good"
Some great instinctive coaching...
Glad to see our coach is using the force to make in game adjustments....maybe someone should tell him that it is just a movie.
