This would be a huge win if they can hold on?
Karl has, and will do very well with this team, and any other he coaches. I have never said different.hobiecat said:Really...I think missing 9 of 20 free throws in the fourth is what made it close...
And winning 5 out of 6 since Melo was traded ...and the one loss by a point...Gallinari injured and out....I'm gonna give Karl an A since the trade.
So was it a mistake not calling time out? (I didn't realize the title of this thread is because we are 5-1 since the trade, that changes the weight of GK's hands).hobiecat said:Sorry...I didn't realize the title of the thread was Karl mismanages clock yet nuggets win in spite of his ineptitude.....
Destroyed Memphis by 13
Beatdown Boston by 14
Lost a squeaker to Portland by 1
Won by 10 against Atlanta
Destroyed Charlotte by 40 points
Won against Utah by 2 on the road
I'm still giving him an A.
Yep, and I have seen it time and time again where obvious mistakes in the fourth quarter cost us games. Particularly when he does not call time out or mandate his players use the entire shot clock with a lead. It's simple math and I have watched dozens of games lost in the fourth quarter when we have a lead, all the while, dudes shooting with 14 seconds left on the clock. That is pure coaching fail.zman said:Kmart flubbed it...but I remember a Laker series where Karl teams couldnt get the ball in twice and changed the complexion of the series...and may have cost them the western conference finals...and possibly the title...
Exactly, and like Schot, he is a great man, and a very good coach... but both have made critical mistakes with their teams... coaching mistakes, that cost more than just a game or so.Deuceu72 said:I do like George. That being said. He reminds me of Marty Schottenhimer. Good coach. Always has winning competitive teams, but can't come through in the clutch.
It's also a non issue if you call time out and have a more proficient, heady player in bound the ball and have a set play. Not to mention that you just had your best defenders in there who are NOT the best free throw shooters... Even more reason to call time out.hobiecat said:It's a non-issue if a ten year vet with six hundred games under his belt tosses the ball to a guy in blue.
