    Very good question matt, this team is unbelievable. If Batum is injured then sit his *** down there is no excuse for 11 turnovers in 2 games Stott's needs to handle his business.

    Whatever the reason it's still a big question of how we could have executed so well early on and so poorly now.

    Watching plays with lazy passes, or guys not boxing out, or not rotating, or not taking opportunities on offense... it's understandable why we don't build any momentum unless we are just draining a lot of 3s.

    Something could be said for LA being out and maybe guys are getting confused with the change in what they do. But we were losing with him too when he wasn't giving 100%. Maybe it all comes down to a healthy and motivated LA.

    It's actually pretty natural for this to happen. Stott's doesn't utilize our bench enough to get our starters rest throughout the season. They are burnt out and playing like it. The combination of fatigue and teams knowing that coach doesn't know how to change his game plan. Teams clog our passing lanes cuz they know what we are going to run. We haven't progressed. We are playing the exact same way as the beginning of the year and our starters are capable of running the system but can do it effectively when they are fatigued.

    Yeah but it is hard to imagine the little things like boxing out not happening because of fatigue. It's not that hard to do.

    Good points though, I'm guessing you're right about fatigue being a large factor, and at least Stotts seems to be using the bench more now with the injuries. But yea I think it would've been helpful earlier in the season to rest the starters more.
