“If we’re winning and I’m sitting, I’m happy. Tonight, we got beat, and I’m on a 10-day-contract leash. I’m not happy about that, just because we lost. If we’re winning, I’ll sit over there for 48 minutes.”
A quote from Kevin Martin via Jonathan Feigen of the Chronicle
I think Martin has a reason to be unhappy. I dont think McHale is utilizing Martin to his full potential. Everyone know about 75% of his shots get created by running screens for him which they are not doing. He only took 3 shots last night in 18 minutes. At least he is not forcing shots and passing the ball, but if we are not going to use him properly something has to be done.
McHale sometimes really irks me. Last night no one except Lowry had some kind of life in them. Why not throw T-Will in there for a spark like he did with Adrien in Denver? If you are the coach, you have to maximize what you have. Something similar to Tebow in Denver.
When the Rockets headed out on their six-game road trip, Kevin Martin was on a roll. He had led the team in scoring in seven consecutive games in which he played, topping 20 points in six of them.
How long until he is traded to Minnesota?? Boston maybe seems to be a fit as well as they run similar plays for Ray Allen. Or does McHale need to run more plays for Martin?
