But when they go zone with bigger lineups, they are intriguing.
Tried from time to time at The Bubble and looked raw and hesitant... they had no practice sessions enough to shape it.
I dont know if Mike The MaloOne gave up about that.
If they can eventually conoct a more or less functional zone defense, that could be a pain in the ass for Utah (hardly the greatest 3p team ever).
If they don't, I think Jazz has a good chance.
Unless The Joker and Murray gets on fire during the serie, of course.
In that case it's just done whatever Snyder tries.
I don't know about stats but my sensation is you're playing your worst defense in last four years or so.
If they run a zone we have like 7 players who shoot 40+% on catch and shoot threes, we will murder them.
