Re: Heat > Undertaker
That was a bad loss for the Lakers tonight but I blame it more on Antoni than I do the team. They had just played @Indiana on Friday night and a home game Sunday against the Kings, so it was their 3rd game in 4 days and the 2nd of a back to back. It was still a 5 point game at the end of 3 but they were clearly gassed and Antoni refused to play anyone outside of a 7 man rotation. By the time they got to the 4th, they were just flat out done and got outscored 28-10. Meanwhile, Phoenix was using a 10 man rotation, so they had fresh legs in the 4th. I don't care how good a team is, if they are worn out, they are losing to fresh legs; even if those fresh legs are an awful Suns team.
In related news, the Jazz dropped a game at home to the reeling Knicks, who were playing without Melo, Chandler and Amare. The Lakers loss was bad but this one was just as bad or worse.
