Not to be picky, but it was a 4 turnover game. It happens.

I think the multitude of lineups screws with all the guys that handle the ball on this team. The assist level is putrid - for every body. How in the world can you have assist makers when you can't get comfortable with the people you play with on a regular basis? I really was hoping that IT and Robinson could develop a raport as the season progressed. I'd love to see more pick and rolls. I'd love to see some more lob passes to Robinson. Those opportunities are there; I saw some opportunities missed in the last game. But it's going to take a consistent lineup and some consistent minutes and film work to get there.
See this just goes to show what a nutcase of a coach Smart is. Now, we might not be winning more games with a different coach, but we sure as hell wouldn't be losing more. You don't go out to the media and say that you're going to get more PT for a player, then continue not playing him or playing him little. It's like ... Smart has never ever been able to stick to his word. He's a smooth talker, but he doesn't walk the walk.

Spurs damn near beat the Heat with Duncan, Parker, Ginobili and Green out. That is one heck of a well coached team - their "scrubs" executed far far better on offense than our team ever does. See if Smart was Pop he'd now go "oh dang, I need to get more PT for these guys!", and you'd see Tony Parker sitting an extra 6 minutes a game so that James Andersen gets to play. See that's what Smart doesn't get - your main team consists of 8-9 guys, and all the rest are there to do a good job filling in when one of your main guys is hurt or suspended or something (or in this case sent home to take the day off). It doesn't matter how good a job they do, because you're supposed to have settled on your 9 best players long ago.
