Have you watched the league? Scoring has been up for the last few years. It's not just the D, but also pace of play. Every time they scored, we inbounded and tried to score within 3-4 seconds on transition. That's the way the old Denver Nuggets used to play, which is why Scott Skiles had 30 assists 31 years ago.
But transition D was atrocious tonight by both teams. We scored 94 points in the paint. A big reason? No Myles Turner. Sabonis is not a true center, nor is he a rim protector.
