The problem most of us seem to have with Flip is his tendency to dribble down the clock and drive through the lane full of defenders to get his own shot off, rather than pass the ball. His turnovers don’t help either and not the best defender on the team.
Now Flip did an admirable job in Chauncey’s absence against the Suns, 18 points 7 assists and just 2 turnovers in 38 minutes on the floor. He even made a few circus shots when we needed them, but does that performance give Pistons fans new found confidence in the ability of Flip Murray? Realistically in Chauncey’s return Flip is not going to see those kinds of minutes. And Flip seems to need that kind of time to be an asset to any team that he’s on.
I was made aware of these cool player widgets from The Cavalier at YAYSports, who is officially back from hiatus.
