Miami Game Thread - 11-28-18

Postby mumuskie87 » Wed Nov 28, 2018 6:56 pm

22-17 at the 1st half mid point
Naji off to a good start
I think I would be fine if Q didn't shoot another 3 the rest of the season
Jones has to shoot better than 50% from the line or teams will just play hack a shaq on him.

19 seconds left in the half and Q takes a step back 3 with 13 seconds left.
Terrible clock management and terrible shot selection.
And Miami gets the board and gets the bucket at the end of the half.

Out of a time out no less.

If that’s the play Travis drew up for them to run (which I doubt) he might as well gone south with V Ice.

1st half stats -
X only 2 TO's
X had 14 points off TO's vs 0 for Miami
I will take that every game.

Scruggs is a fouling machine
Picks up his 3rd early in 2H
Has fouled out of 2 of the 1st 6 games and had 4 fouls in another

X outscores Miami 28-0 in points off TO's

Miami probably the best of the 3 opponents before UC
Was ranked 155 in KenPom
Ohio is 161 and Oakland is in the 200's

T Steele has been less than impressive, but he has only coached 7 games. I don't think he called that shot. It was Goodin being his rouge, selfish self again. Steele's offense is eerily similar to Mack during the Tu-Lyon's tenure, where they basically dribbled around the perimeter for 25 seconds, then had someone chuck up a low percentge long three, or drive 3 on 1 in the lane. The team played great defense today, but I think the opponenet had somethimg to do with it. The offense was definitely better overall, except for the obligatory double digit low IQ shots, led by the ever delusional Goodin who still believes he channels Tre when shooting the ball.

Steele needs to have a "Come to Jesus" meeting with him soomer rather than later. Some of his tweets after the Maui tourney tells me he doesn't get the fan's critcism of his play.

Only 3 t.o.s as well. While Goodin's shot selection continues to be a problem, he made some very nice drives on buckets, and assists, like the one to TJ. He is a very effective point guard when he understands he is a distributor and slasher, and not a shooter.
