Hey, at least this game mixed things up a bit. Most of our prior games had been decided in the final 5-6 minutes...but this one was pretty much over before we even reached the fourth quarter.
In the past three games, especially, this team has gone where Rashad McCants has taken them. In Tuesday's game against the Kings, Rashad had a dominant performance, and the Wolves earned every bit of that win. Against the Wizards, McCants' lack of playing time in the fourth quarter helped Washington take control of the game in crunch time. And tonight, Rashad struggled from start to finish- and the Wolves ended up getting spanked by the Hornets.
The streakiness of McCants has definitely been evident during this past week. A few nights ago, Rashad put up a career-high 33 points and dominated the second half- tonight, though, he simply never got into a rhythm and shot a disappointing 2-8 from the field, finishing with 7 points.
Arguably, then, the biggest challenges Rashad faces are of the mental sort. We've seen his talent on full display during several games this season, but we just haven't seen much consistency from him in his young NBA career.no comments
