Monty threatens to bench players who don't play defense

quote:

Memphis, Tenn. -- New Orleans Hornets Coach Monty Williams wasn’t pleased after Friday night’s loss to the Houston Rockets and he threatened Sunday to sit some players if they don't improve defensively.

The Hornets' transition defense flaws were exposed by the Rockets, who had a 20-9 edge in fastbreak points during their 100-82 victory. The Hornets' last four opponents have scored at least 100 points.

Seeking improvement, the Hornets play the Memphis Grizzlies Sunday, another team that likes to push the tempo with point guards Mike Conley and Jerryd Bayless.

``We’re certainly not going to watch guys play on the floor and allow transition baskets,’’ Williams said.``Transition defense is a fundamental and usually is not something you have to teach at this point of the season.’'

re: Monty threatens to bench players who don't play defense
one time my elementary school coach was pissed at us for not playing defense. he started benching anyone who he didnt feel was fully hustling...he benched all the starters within the first 2 minutes of the game. then when the bench players weren't hustling, he threatened to forefit the game

Good. We gave up way too many easy transition layups on Friday. I hope they let Miller play to see if he deserves minutes over guys like Xavier.

I think Darius just being alive makes him deserve more minute than Xavier.
