I will say this about Big Al, he does seem to do well in end-game situations, close 4th quarters. But yeah, Favors handled things last night. A tough game. A lot of potential with this team, but still playing middling basketball.
Did Tinsley steal Haywards Shooting ability? Good god, Hayward couldn't hit anything and Tinsley was hitting everything.

I hate having to wait until February for Hayward to start hitting his outside shots. can Hayward consistently be that player from Feb-April of last year.
Also, he really struggles in traffic with the ball. its a guaranteed strip.
Big Al in 14 game so far: Total 42 fta - 3 fta per. game
In this game: 10 fta
I didn't watch the game but it looks like he get rewarded for being more aggresive offensively.
If Jefferson can get to the line 10 times per game, I can overlook his total lack of defensive awareness.
He's averaged 3.53 FT attempts per game over his career.
Last night's game really helps skew the following stat greatly, but over his last eight games, Big Al is averaging 4.75 attempts. Not amazing but an improvement.
billy shelby nailed it with his comments hayward and carroll. Repped.
When one guy doesn't cut, it's the guy's fault. When the whole team doesn't cut, it's the system. This is on Ty.He's such a big guy and has great footwork. I've never understood why he doesn't take it strong every time. I was watching some boozer highlights recently and I noticed how quick he was with the ball. Al holds the ball much longer which seems to stall our offense. One thing that really bothers me about our offense is that when Al has the ball on the block, everyone stops moving. I don't understand why guys aren't cutting and running off curls? Is that Ty's system or AJ's fault or a little of both?
Denver, a team very similar to us, gave us a full demonstration of the blueprint in the first half. We'll see if Ty was paying attention.
Not saying it is or isn't Corbins fault but that is only partly true IMO. The system he's running maybe they should be cutting but aren't for whatever reason or when one person misses the timing it trickles down and then everyone is out of sync. I would think the weak to non existent screens they set would be a good example of poor execution and then that throws off the rest of the play.
I guess if I believed Corbin was telling the players to not move, cut or set good screens I would want him fired as well. I think it is more poor execution, why that is, I'm not sure, could be he or the other coaches are poor teachers which would be on Corbin. Could be players not having confidence or are trying to learn it or other things, but I'm just throwing it out there.
