No one is aggressive in attempts to break down the D. I love ball movement but it purpose is to get an advantage to attack and then further magnify that advantage with more ball movement and successive attacks until we get the best look. We just move the ball without any idea what to do with it unlike the previous season.
Defensively i saw much more effort than last season and i like the new PnR scheme but the effort comes and goes. We also have the problem that our back court is not only young but not long enough. I do like the defensive improvements of our young guys and the effort of everyone. Still needs more work.
I hope this is just a not enough games played together thing and not something permanent.
Guys seem hesitant to shoot and 1 second is all it take for most NBA players to rotate. CATCH-and-shoot means NOW!
Fat Lever was talking during the game and he said on Westbrook he'd go under the screen every time. Last year and this year, they are going over the screens when ever it's a guard and mostly going under on forwards.
At the end of last season, they said they were going to look for long, athletic wings - oops!
Imagine if we drafted Kuzma with our pick. I know that no one expected him to be this good but if we lucked into him we would be legit future contenders.
Alatan, you really need to get over this Kuzma love, that 20/20 hindsight crap is annoying and gets old fast . If we'd have just done......is for LOSERS !!
