MartinToVaught wrote:It's been a pleasure to watch a team that actually passes the ball so far this season. Doc seemed to think passing the ball was like a trick play that you only use sparingly (and never in the playoffs).

Every coach in general wants their team to pass the ball, Doc definitely wanted them to do so, and they had their moments. Not every coach can get their team to pass the ball the way they want though.

There's both coaching and personnel aspects to it too, not having shooters or enough playmakers is one such problem. Defenses such as a great switching defense can make a passing team become an iso ball team, etc. Many fans will interpret this as the team just not passing the ball and not the offense getting disrupted.

Doc was not able to devise an offensive system that could adjust to playoff defenses well enough, and you can argue also didn't have adequate enough personnel, sure. Hopefully Lue can get the system right, but also hopefully personnel is good enough to do it.

I like the fact that when the bench comes in, even at the end of blowouts, they're still running the same offense that's been installed for the team and not a free for all.
