Pau has been playing too many minutes and it really hurts our transition game and our defensive rotations.
Ideally, that starting team gets us a lead by running out on the break and if we play a half court set, then Nash, Jodie, Kobe and Toine are all good perimeter shooters. Kobe, Toine and Nash can all dive and finish at the rim. So Howard has plenty space in the middle to operate with dangerous shooters on the perimeter and slashers on the wing.
Run up the score and then go to a bench that will slow the game down to secure the lead and drain clock.
If Mike Brown has done nothing else, he has made Jodie Meeks into a hell of a fan favorite. UTAH 30, LA 19.
