This problem with the defense could put a serious damper on our title hopes. As somebody mentioned, MSU has had trouble cracking 20 in halves before tonight.
Michigan vs. MSU bball open thread
fuck is Dakich babbling about?
Do you fellas think GRIII is done being a contributor for the year? I mean anything other than 4-5 pt games, 2 rebounds per game. He looked shell shocked and his confidence is gone. This is nothing that a summer wont take care of so I expect him to be back and in good form next year but unlike Canadian BAcon who still walks around with swag GR simply looks like a broken guy on his close up shots. Or is it as simple as this kid hitting 4-5 from the field in some game in the future? I am worried he is just going to be a space eater for the rest of the year and tourney. This is not a 2-3 game slump - he has been completely ineffecitve for 3 weeks now.
GRIII and Canadian Bacon have two different personalities. Hopefully he'll get some confidence back whenever our schedule lightens up.
Maybe Nix can do some good and take him out for the rest of the game.
Maybe Michigan needs to start fouling. All year it has been said they are the least fouling team etc. However, that means teams are getting free shots way too often.
Did everyone not see this coming? Izzo's teams always start the season like crap and then completely turn it around by January-February
...is that you, Caris?
Spin move awesomeness...
LaVert on Dawson? That looks like trouble to me...
Levert with a smooth jump shot there.
People need to calm down. MSU is shooting the lights out but they're only up five. They'll cool down.
You could not have stated this more clearly or accurately.
Why are they shooting lights out, because no one is D'ing them up? No one's in their face?
I Gary Harris has a bad back, why would you give him an inch? Make him work. Make him exert himself offensively and defensively.
Moar Spike Albrecht.
Did Dakich just say Hardford?
we would run something that wasn't always a handoff beyond the three point line.
MSU recruits hateable fat dudes.
I want fouls to go both ways once..
That was kind of a cheap foul call on Horford, wasn't it?
I wish we played D like that.
The fuck was that Spike?
We have no offense with this line up
Man, teams realy have figured out how to defend us.
gotta get burke back in here
What is with this lineup? Seriously.
That actually was a very good defensive possession for Sparty.
We're in deep shit.
really hurting us lately, so timid anymore.
He doesn't shoot open 3's and then works his way into a defended 2....just go ahead and shoot the open 3 dammit
and too much dribbling by too many guys
What the hell is this lineup?
McGary stop throwing the ball away
Why do I feel like 95% of our offensive possessions take place outside the arc? You're not going to win many games like that.
Worst offensive lineup ever? Yes.
I don't know the percentages, but I'd guess opponents are shooting above 60% in the first 12 minutes of games at their place.
cause we play shitty defense?
Your answer is truth though
5 on 3 and you stop and hold the ball. then mcgary with another TO. horrible.
Get off the court Izzo
We have no offense. We're screwed.
if we don't get it together
McGary's second giveaway tonight.
Why do this to spike? Burke should never come out.
Announcers just a bit over the top.
this is bad...come on
Not good....we are rushing everything.
