I want to blame the refs as much as anybody, and the missed layups by Stu and Novak were killer. However, I think the real reason we lost last night is the way we decided to depend on Manny down the stretch - he killed us on both ends of the floor. Dylan has a nice bullet list over at UMHoops describing Harris' performance over the final 10 minutes of the game - it's not pretty... I think this has been mentioned before, but while Manny has NBA potential, this team would be a lot better (as would he) by operating within John's system, rather than just trying to create for himself - drive to the lane directly off of a screen, not after standing at the top of the key for five seconds, letting the help defense set up before the drive, and for the love of God PLAY A LITTLE DEFENSE!!
at least it's not just us?
