Alo - Passed up open shots all night. Over penetrates and throws up a wild prayer with no chance

Harris - Been aggressive and shot well all night. Gets to a spot in the lane he is comfortable and pulls up and hits a floater

Harris's shot could have also been characterized as over-penetration and wild.
He wanted to pass, but the defender checked off, so he changed the shot while in the air.
Thankfully it went in.
For shooting, I'd much rather have Tyler - don't get me wrong.
But that example was not soooo much different between the two.

You are thinking of his earlier floater.

Harris got the ball and never had any intention of passing and his man played him straight up the entire time on the "game winner". He got to spot around the free throw and hit the floater (albeit a tough shot) over his defender.

The shots were wildly different. One was under control with a very confident scoring guard and a shot Harris makes probably 50% of the time and the other was wildly out of control and prayer that is made basically 0% of the time, again not to mention shot by a guard who had been passing up wide open shots all game.

You're right. I watched the replay last night and realized my mistake.
Does it change the point though? They are both capable of wild drives into the lane, needing help and luck to finish the play.
But, again, as a an offensive PG, I will pick Tyler every time.
D...We gave up a lot of 3's, but there were only 2 I can think of that were specifically Tyler's fault...Jury's still out.

There is also another huge difference between the shots...The most obvious one.

One guy had the dribble the entire length of the floor in 5 seconds to get his shot the other had the entire shot clock to figure out how do do anything he wanted.

People need to stop laying all the flaws of this team at the feet of Lomax...It is just not fair.

Life ain’t fair bub. Nor was it meant to be

life is just a bunch of sideshows


RE: Alex Lomax Dad - Eagleonpar - 01-11-2022 01:38 PM

Funny thing is Lomax dad basically called Penny a liar saying that he didn’t think Alex was really injured.

In no way have I done that...

And realistically 5 seconds to get from free throw line to free throw line is a decent amount of time. It came down to decision making in the end. I blame Penny as much as I do Alo. He should not have been the guy with the ball in his hands with the game on line. Like say, he is not comfortable shooting wide open midrange shots so why he would be comfortable taking the game winner is confusing and he clearly was not.

Harris on the other hand is comfortable taking any shot, sometimes to a fault.

Don't worry they will find someone else to blame. The fellas on the team just need to drown all of us out with their team play. Play for the team guys not for misfits.

Some times a dad gets out of prison and messes with his son's head.
Ruins chemistry for all the others around him.
Ask Jamie Dutton.
