Dav over the Bills by 2

Recommended Posts

2 down 2 to go....

Great win yesterday ...see Day spread thread for post game analysis

Meanwhile....it is on to Dav....another team we owe payback to...a game we should have won in Jan....while everyone focused on the final FTs in that 1 pt loss, it was really a matter of poor shooting overall that cost us that game.... a normal Bills slash is 42/31/60...Last Dav game....35/27/65...we were missing three 2's (easy ones) and one 3...in another words we left 9 pts on the table...should have won by 8...What I am doing in this thread is not dwelling in the past but seeing what went wrong so hopefully we can fix it. 

Dav is a B+ team  overall....trending at B+...The Bills are a B- team ...trending at B+...Dav is a better team as far as the season goes but right now the teams are just about equal. The spread variable on this game is 1-4 pts in favor of Dav...very close game. Dav  is similar to Day in that they have a good defense..similar to us...And like Day a better offense than us.  The difference between Day and Dav is 3s....They shoot better 3s than Day and defend the 3s worse. As you will see in the report card, they are not an outstanding shooting team ...just above average (except FT shooting where they are an A)

Let's take a look at the report card......

..............................SLU..............................Dav............................................SLU..................................Dav

 ..................................................OFF......................................................................................DEF...............

PPG.........................D-.................................C-...............................................A .......................................A

FG%..........................F+...............................B-...............................................B+.......................................A

3P%..........................F..................................B-...............................................A-.......................................B+

FT%...........................F-...2nd worst ITN......A .........................................................

Reb............................A+...17th ITN..............C-.................................................B+.....................................B-

Off Reb....A+ ...4th ITN...we are currently tied with Duke. (you won't see that sentence very often)

Report card change..... UP...OFF 3P%....DEF Reb( total reb allowed)

Top 100 ITN

Stls....Goodwin 53rd.

Blks....French.......61st

Rebs....French.......78th

Off Reb....Goodwin...11th...French...82nd

WWN2D2W...Shoot better than last Dav game....Again we don't have to do something extraordinary...we just have to play Billiken ball and make our average slash...42/31/60....all parts....Dominate the boards...by double digits would be good...win the TO battle.. the last 2 games we have averaged 8.5 ...that is a winning pace....Stop Mr, Davidson ...Gudmundsson...leads in  PPG,  Assts,   Reb and Stls....Last time he scored 27 pts against us ..too many...Hold Gud and Grady to 13 pts /player. 

WCGW....We give them open shots... we make mistakes (TOs)...we don't stay on Gud

Bottomline..... Overall they are the better team...HOWEVER...right now we are playing equal to them ...some would say we are playing over our head , others would say we are playing to our potential....either way,  right now things are pretty much even....It all comes down to 3 questions.....

1...Can we continue to play to our potential?

2...Do we have the stamina to play to our potential?

3...Do we want this game more than Dav? 

If the answer is yes  to these questions....then WE WIN

Go Bills.

That is roughly what the Vegas spread was prior to the game. Of course we ripped the spread to shreds with our 23 pt. win.

Let's start with the orig post.....

WWN2D2W...Shoot better than last Dav game....Again we don't have to do something extraordinary...we just have to play Billiken ball and make our average slash...42/31/60....all parts....Dominate the boards...by double digits would be good...win the TO battle.. the last 2 games we have averaged 8.5 ...that is a winning pace....Stop Mr, Davidson ...Gudmundsson...leads in  PPG,  Assts,   Reb and Stls....Last time he scored 27 pts against us ..too many...Hold Gud and Grady to 13 pts /player. 

 

Shoot better against Dav than last time... ...we did....After shooting a better % on 3s than 2s yesterday , we almost did it again today...48.6% to 47.1%.... amazing...let's look at the slashes...both sets...The Bills....A- / A++/B......Dav...F-/ F-/ F-... And That was the ball game...The immovable object (Bills defense)  stopped the unstoppable force. (Dav offense)...While we lost the TO battle  but only had 9 for the game...2nd half only 2 ...that was huge...3 game total 8.67/ gm ...A+....Win the the Reb battle by double digits...another strong yes...beat them 45-29....Stop Gud and Grady...hold them to 13 pts  /player....13x2 =26pts...actual ...Gud 15 pts  Grady 7= 22pts......net gain 4 pts...another yes.

Now let's answer the questions from above.....

 

Bottomline..... Overall they are the better team...HOWEVER...right now we are playing equal to them ...some would say we are playing over our head , others would say we are playing to our potential....either way,  right now things are pretty much even....It all comes down to 3 questions.....

2...Do we have the stamina to play to our potential?

3...Do we want this game more than Dav? 

If the answer is yes  to these questions....then WE WIN

 

And the answer is...........

1 ...Yes

2...Yes...actually Dav was the team that looked tired

3...Yes...Bills always get an A+ on Heart

So...3 yeses = WE WIN

Tip o the cap to....Isabell ...19pts... plus 4 reb & 8 assts... .....Bess 24pts,  shooting 71% FG% ...and 50% from 3 (3-6) plus 7 rebs....Foreman...11 rebs...French ..10 rebs...AND 3 starters Goodwin , Bess and Isabell  have averaged 37.8 min /player /gm for 3 gms...that is 340 out of 360 min.

Let's hope there is 1 more game in there.

Go Bills....

Fix it...I have cranked out a boat load of numbers in the last few days ....Next year the Bills  need to finish 4th place or higher so the Bills  and I can  get a double bye..... We both could use a break....lol
