No screens off ball, no back door cuts, nothing. Nash literally has non shooters standing in corners watching Harden and KD attempt to score versus 3 defenders.
Marks needs to wake tf up before his buddy destroys this team. If he already hasn't
So I'm honestly curious, what's your ideal rotation where we would have ample shooting around KD and Harden?
LMA as a stretch 5 maybe, and Mills and Bembry? Nobody really pays attention to LMA at the 3pt line anyway, and Bembry is a non shooter. So that still leaves just KD and Harden and Mills. And how many minutes are we going to run those 3? We have guys like Brown and Duke and Edwards and Griffin and Johnson off the bench too. Literally none of them scare a defense from deep whatsoever.
We don't have shooters. IDK why people keep harping on that point, like Nash has options here.
I pointed out that our guys can't shoot in my first sentence. But that doesn't mean that they should be standing around while Harden drives into a wall of defenders either. Guys need to start moving, setting screens and cutting. We aren't even hitting LMA in his sweet spots for jumpers anymore.
Why are we having guys that shoot 26% from deep standing in corners? That isn't helping.
You have to cater the system to the personnel to effectively produce the best shots. Having Harden drive into a wall of white jerseys or KD taking contested pull ups over 2 people are not the best shots that we can get. Why aren't we setting screens for KD when KD is off ball??
The Nets offense is laughable right now, and way too easy to stop.
