Gafford's energy

Gafford has no fouls. Why is he gassed? Does he have a girlfriend keeping him up late? He should be able to play 35 minutes if not in foul trouble. Just don’t understand it.

Reminds me of Portis at the end of his last year here. But his fatigue didn’t show until a little later.
Got to remember that these big guys exert more energy just fighting for position and constantly having 2-3 men pushing & shoving & leaning on them. Especially when we don’t have another threat inside.

It’s bc he’s been misused. Been saying all season that playing him as a traditional back to the basket, block to block 5 was a mistake. He needs space and his body and game isn’t equipped to bang in the post all night.
