Taking Stock: C's - Heat Game 4


Taking stock 
After each game, we'll be taking stock in each players… and maybe coach's… performance.  If we like what we see, we're buyin'.  If we don't, we're sellin'.  Or maybe we'll just hold onto our stock until we see more next game

BuyRajon Rondo:  This is just one tough kid.  He didn't have a great game, but that he had a game at all was amazing.  I will buy him for the balls to go out there and do his job alone.

Delonte West:  He's the only guy off the bench we can count on right now.  And his clutch 3 was a gigantic reason we even had a chance to win.

Sell Glen Davis:  Holy mother of God is he just terrible right now.  Earlier this season, he was a big reason why we were winning games.  Now he's making it impossible to play him.  We needed 25 minutes out of him last night so KG could rest a little more… but the 17 he played turned out to be way too much.

Hold Doc Rivers: 38 minutes for a 1-armed Rondo was too much.  They sagged off him too much and it affected the rest of the team.  It made it too easy to double team in the post and neutralize KG… it made it too easy to clog the paint.  The C's needed to make another adjustment.  

The Big 3:  The execution down the stretch and then the little bit of bickering was uncharacteristic.  

The C's demise:  Last rites are being read and the doctors have one hand on the plug.  But I've seen enough episodes of "House" to know that sometimes a patient survives after the plug is pulled.  Yes, I'm relying on fiction to keep me going.  But until they're dead… I'm holding out hope.
