Can someone explain wth is going on with Pacers defense here?

LeVert hanging around not defending anyone, Justin not guarding Alize, Sumner somehow positioned behind that Nets player, Brissett the big man defending the Nets ball handler at the 3pt line

Seriously, what is going on with this defense?



It’s a 3-2 zone, it appears. Looks like Nate is pointing out that Levert needs to drop down to the corner on KD, so that Justin (?) can drop to tag Alize sneaking in from behind. A lot of zone’s are now putting the “longest” defender at the point on top of the zone. We’ve even had Myles on top, as his length allows him to disrupt a lot of the zone killing passes that go over or through the lane. Looks like Sumner was guarding the ball, who passed to Oshae’s guy, so Sumner needs to drop back down into the lane-ish to be ready for another assignment.

Could also be a box and one, too, where Justin is the one chasing Durant, and Levert needs to drop back down to his spot in the zone to tag Alize sneaking in behind. That would actually make more sense, but I’d have to see the video leading up and after to see which it is, truly.
