Give credit to Miami coaching to have a defensive scheme that exposed our extreme weaknesses ... our guards are very small and can't get to the rim with their size easily, our forwards are generally poor ball handlers, and our bench is very limited given the injuries. FVV hasn't been the same since returning from his injury and is frankly hurting the team. If Powell was shooting this way ... the comments on this board would be exploding about how can we ever get rid of him. I'm not suggesting that with FVV, but we need either Davis or McCaw to help as the primary PG .. I'm not suggesting they are the solution given they really aren't PG's. FVV struggles against length and playing him off the ball is the best chance to get him going in a game like last night.
I'm back to stating that we need Masai to get a PG with some size on this team ... one that can break down a defense and get the team going.
If Davis or FVV hit a couple of open 3's we could of won the game ... was very happy with our defense that kept us in the game.
This game exposed weaknesses that we have even after our guys come back .... Thomas, Powell, Siakam, and Gasol would of helped with 3 point shooting, but our weakness against teams with size exposes our small PG line-up that I believe needs to be fixed to address this issue or other players need to become the primary ball handlers.
I'm very leery of giving FVV a bloated contract tbh. I really like him but he's always been a little up and down and injuries have been an issue with him. And I agree about his size limits him vs certain teams. I'm not convinced he's our PG of the future who should be making 25mil/yr. Although right now I don't see a market for him next summer where he would get that tbh. But a lot can change.
