There’s still no box score up, but this is dumb. Halifax can’t win close games which is almost always a sign of a bad coach. This is really starting to get out of hand.
The Daily News also reports that the location of the game was changed and no one told the Rainmen. A classic ABA incident. I am just glad that the game was played at all. The Daily News article also has this classic quote from Rick Lewis:
“They didn’t even tell us the game site was changed until we showed up at the gym,” Rainmen head coach Rick Lewis lamented. “Game-wise, we just gave this one away. We have to learn how to finish.”
I am sick and tired of reading this after every game the Rainmen lose. If they give away close games, don’t finish games, lose concentration, have emotional lapses, exploit mismatches, etc. then it’s your fault Lewis. It’s a coach’s job to make sure these things don’t happen.
