Not surprisingly, the Lone Ranger lost.
On April 2, Beijing time, the Lone Rangers challenged the Heat away, and they had a poor performance in the fourth quarter, and finally lost to the Heat 122-129, ushering in the sixth loss in the last seven games. Doncic performed eye-catchingly, cutting a quasi-triple-double of 40 points, 10 rebounds and 8 assists; Irving was mediocre, finishing with 23 points and eight rebounds. Hardaway Jr. played well as a surprise soldier, shooting 6-of-10 from three-point range and scoring 31 points.
However, losing is not terrible, the terrible disunity that appears on the pitch and complains about each other after losing.
First of all, Owen. Irving couldn't touch the ball at all in the fourth quarter, only got one shot in the entire fourth quarter, and could only stand in the bottom corner and watch Doncic single. Irving said in an interview that he was "disappointed that he couldn't touch the ball in the fourth quarter."
And then there's Doncic. His old mistakes were repeated, and he complained about the referee many times during the game, and even did not return to defense many times. And through the broadcast footage, Doncic seemed to yell directly at Irving, and the two stood on the sidelines and began to communicate, but Irving spread his hands all the time. In the post-game interview, Doncic fired at the referee again: "I don't really want to say something about being fined, but some of the current situation is really disappointing, because of the referee's problem, the Lone Ranger lost at least 5 games, which is an unforgivable mistake, and they will always do something against us." Then the reporter asked about the suspected roar Irving, Doncic said: "Actually, I don't remember much about what happened between the two of us at that time, but we both want to win, and the roar Irving is just exchanging tactics, we often communicate in a very drastic way."
No matter how both sides explain the whole thing, it is certain that Irving and Doncic are not suitable, and it is only a matter of time before they break up. And this series of things happening on and off the field all shows one thing, the lone ranger has lost unity, trust, confidence. So, they can already buy a fishing rod and get ready to fish.
Perhaps, Boss Ku can consider asking a master to change the name of the team, after all, after changing the name to the Lone Ranger, it has really become a team with one single and four people. Dear fans, do you say this strategy is OK?
