What were his options? The roster didn't really have options for him to drastically adjust how he was able to defend.
With who though? Ayton and Crowder are the ones with size that’s it.
The wall works with size without it Giannis is free like the hulk smash smash ala Shaq/Lebron.
Not to mention Lopez/Middleton/Holiday/Tucker/Portis as just having more size against their opponents all ends up.
Raptors could build a wall, Giannis was young. But look at their size and quality of defenders. Leonard/Siakam/Og/Ibaka/Gasol that’s five count em five.
Massive massive difference. Monty played his best card for the first two games (pace and space).
Bud just assigned Holiday to Paul and that was that.
Playoffs is highly matchup dependent.
Imagine Lebron having a zero direct counter. Smash smash time and that’s sweet FA you can do about it.
