When a talented team loses a 22pt lead to a fringe playoff team without it's top 2 players.. it's on the players.
First of all Avery cannot make Lopez grow balls and make him not get bullied into horrible shots and make him faster and smarter to play better D. He cannot force Humphries to become smarter and make him not get the ball ripped off his hands by guards. He cannot force our 100 million $ player to play like a top 5 pg that fans claim he is and make him penetrate and playmake and not take dumb 3pt shots.
Our defense is just atrocious and Avery has no players on the roster outside maybe Wallace and Bogans that can play great defense. Johnson is ok and Deron is barely average if that. NONE of our bigs are good. All our bigs suck defensively.
62 points in the paint to a team missing it's top 2 players does not fall on the coach.
