“He was on the other side of the court, screaming: ‘Good shot, Kev!’” Durant said, shaking his head in delight. “I’m thinking, this guy’s an All-American type of teammate right there.”
we need to play better D. the shots will fall.
That was one of the more awful possessions before a half I've ever seen.
What the hell was that? We had 20 seconds to do that?
Pass the damn ball Burke. You are 3-234 tonight.
This team is playing like shit at home right now. Think they got a little too cocky after beating an overrated Wisky?
THJ really steppin up. If we don't start playing hard on defense he's gonna need to go truly HAM for us to pull this one out.
Encouraging news on Horford today. With Smot, Novak, and Morgan in perpetual foul trouble (even at home apparently), and McLimans being McLimans, we could really use Horford down the home stretch.
About the only complaint I can make about Beilein's coaching is that for some reason, we regularly struggle to get off a good shot on these end-of-the-half possessions.
You will not win a game shooting 28.1%. You've got to be shitting me. MAKE SOME SHOTS. PLAY DEFENSE.
We're just settling for crappy outside shots, UGGGGGGGGGLLLLLLLLYYYYYY.
I think that point is arguable. There have been a few ugly/forced shots like the one at the end of the half, but most of the shots have been the same open shots that the team has been taking all year.
The shots just need to drop consistently. Our guys have to knock them down where they are there. Most of the misses have just been missed shots that are bound to go in at some point, considering the statistics from the previous games in the season.
Someone has to guard Crawford and Shurma for Christs sakes!
It's pronounced "fergodsakes."
A lot of this has to do with the fact that Morgan is the wimpiest big I've ever watched. Even McLimans has been showing more grit.
Oh, and the fact that the refs are calling Novak for touching another player at all. Why did they create those arcs in the paint if they're not going to use them?
OK, we've got this. I just now had the chance to put on my lucky Maize Rage shirt. The shirt will be the difference.
God I can't wait for McGary.
"Hardaway drives, kicks it out to Burke...Burke at the top of the key, uses a nice pick from Robinson and throws up the pass...AND WHAT A DUNK BY MITCH MCGARY!!! AND THE CROWD IS GOING NUTS!!"
Sounds good, doesn't it?
Let's hope your right
Let's hope your right
Let's hope your right
NW isn't going to shoot 61% the entire game, they have to cool down. I have no doubt we will win this game.
Man I wish Horford was healthy... He would play hard at least
Against a 1,3,1 zone. The team also did more film study than running court situations the last couple days to get back their legs after WI game. I think burke will have a solid second half.
Shurna has such an ugly release! How do those shots drop?
We're undefeated at home but 0-3 when trailing at the half.
What happens when an unstoppable force runs into an immovable object?
Shurna has missed one shot. ONE!
Terrible shot but it went in
Denard, Devin, and some other bros in the student section.
Robinson's in the Maize Rage. Game over.
Death from above, indeed.
trading 3's is not going to work.. and Evan can't hit a shot anymore
No middle range for Evan. Either he is on fire or is just awful
The crowd's got to get into this game. Even the Maize Rage isn't totally bringing it.
fully bring it?
shots are there. just arent falling.
Put Mattison in for defensive coach! This team is playing pathetic defense and needs a turn-around soon or we're toast.
Need to wake the hell up.
Nice to see Denard supporting his cagers.
Yeah, that's right. I used the word cagers.
I love that term. We always used it when I was at the Michigan Daily.
Yeah, that is definitely a journalistic term. I used to be a sportswriter at one time, and tried to used it as much as possible without being redundant. Haha.
Probably should show a sense of urgency, too. Maybe some emotion? They look like they don't care if they win or lose...
At least Smotz lane defense is good.
Horrid shot selection...
Everything is going wrong on our side
THIS IS REALLY REALLY REALLY FRUSTRATING GODDAMN
Tough team to come back against. Gotta try to speed this game up a bit.
The guys don't deserve it. They're playing with absolutely no heart. Dis they just want a game off?
