Curious if anybody thinks JBB could have bested the Hawks in game 5 without Jimmy and Lowry? Spos did exactly what you should do and what we didn’t do against the hawks attack attack Trae

I'll grant you Butler, but I'm not 100% convinced that the current version of Lowry being out actually hurt the Heat. Also, teams and players give up at a certain point in the series and Trae clearly did. If Hunter doesn't foul out on a really dubious call, I'm not sure the Heat close that series out last night. He came to play.

Lol
Well we might have won Hawks if we played small instead of playing Allen with broken finger against Hawks small lineup.

Now is the time to either ditch JB or let him resume his role as an Assistant Coach which is what he is. This team is too good for him and his coaching is far too suspect. I just don't see enough game-planning, strategy and innovation and I do not want this team to be squandered with talent level we now have. He's an OK head coach for a mediocre or lottery team - not this one.

If he remains HC I see us having a very lackluster playoff performance, and DG firing him at the end of the season anyway.

Bickerstaff deserves a chance with this team. 2 years in a row we saw offense we liked and then lost more and more playmakers and the offense was simplified.

They were running sets for 2 ballhandlers and then they couldn't. Health and JB running a longer rotation so guys don't get run into the ground are crucial

I think this year will be quite telling. He's now been given a hell lotta talent, so will he expand his regular season rotation (8 guys with 1000+ minutes played last year) or grind guys into the ground (like Coach Thibodeau)? Not all of it can be blamed on the coach, but there was only one guy who played more than 70 games (Love). If we want to go further, let's try upping the threshold...
