John Wall's Monster gamePosted on January 17, 2012
John Wall played quite well last night - scoring a career high 38 points - with 8 assists - 6 rebounds; he ran the floor well; played great defense and handled the ball well with very few turn overs. Our team shot 48 percent - we rebounded well; we just can’t close out games - we don’t shoot free throws well enough and we make a few extra turn overs showing our immaturity and inexperience compared to vet laden teams. The stats were very even last night - little things are derailing us now as a team from being competitive to winning close games. It is a shame that we continue to create distractions for our franchise - we just need to focus on incremental improvements as a team. We need to be a meat and potatoes team; focused on fundamentals and playing the young players to gain experience. We also need to meet the other team's runs at us - and match it with smart well executed runs of our own. I like our team when we run and show athleticism - we hit a few more free throws; we close out a few lay ups in traffic; we take care of the ball a bit more carefully and we would have a few more wins. The line between success and failure in pro sports is in the tiny details sometimes; we need to focus on little things every day - and NOT get distracted by drama and noise.
