Unhappy Kaman Yanked Early From Game
Center Chris Kaman started Tuesday night, but was pulled from the game after just 2:14 had elapsed off the clock.
Coach Rick Carlisle took blame for putting Kaman in that situation, but it didn’t make it any easier for Kaman to understand. He was clearly not happy to get yanked that quickly. He never re-entered the game.
“It’s obvious disappointing that he feels that way, that I shouldn’t even be playing,” Kaman said. “But we’ve been playing well. And I’m happy (for the team). But from a personal standpoint, it’s frustrating because you got a guy who’s played in this league for 10 years and I’m a pretty solid basketball player.”
