Someone tell me what's going on here?
We're not in the playoffs. Check
We're not playing for a playoff spot. Check
Rick Adelman is not trying to win Coach of the Year Award. Check
Can Someone please explain to me why we're putting such a grind when the season is almost ending with no post-season playing at all. Why did he just not let the bench loose? Worse that can happen is we end up 42-40, which is still damn amazing for a team with a history of bad luck, the gods hating us, Yao Ming's missing foot, etc.
I see no point in this, and I'm a stern supporter for Rick Adelman. I really wanted to see Hasheem Thabeet play, and this was the best time. Rick, you gotta explain to me because I'm seriously scratching my head.
