The problem is Lindsey has "bad nights" more than anyone on the team, and as a ball-dominating PG, you just can't have that. He's not a playmaking passer, and he's not a scorer. So, while the Pistons are trying to force bad shots and turnovers, they're letting the other team get out on the break for easy scores. At his position, and with his style of play, he can't just have good games 1 out of every 5. Even on "good games" (where he makes some defensive plays), he still craps on the offense, so it ends up a wash. He's the perfect guy to bring in for 20 seconds for a defensive stop at the end of quarters. That's about it. And yes, Max had probably his worst NBA game this year. His effort on the glass and getting back in transition was awful. Not to mention he didn't finish any of his shots.
