Now that's a win! No more excuses, no more reluctant mediocrity and no more refs. Break out the defibrillator, they've got a rotation! Great job Flip. Why did it seem like DET played with a football? They couldn't even catch the thing. This is the first time I saw the Stuckey I was reading about in the pre-season. AA can ball. Hayes helped. Amir just needs the little things. Protect the ball after rebounds, hold his defensive position, move his feet and not his hands. I am impressed they let him handle the ball/feed the post on O. It's only going to help him. The refs were atrocious. Flip has such a meek demeanor. I wish he could lay into the refs more forcefully/support his players. I would have punted the ball into the stands after the 3rd T if I were he. Thankfully though, Kobe was able to vent his frustrations whenever he felt the need. Perhaps you find getting a foul called in your favor every time you move annoying?
