1.2 seconds left, pretty much means catch and shoot. here's his mistake
1) not putting in sacre to use his height to defend the inbounder
2) not using clark on the floor to play the potential last shot but instead putting him in on the inbounder
3) why is nash in there with 1.2 seconds left?!?! i'd rather see morris in there, or even meeks or blake. someone who is athletic and can fight around picks contest the last second shot.
mda, you're a joke
Agreed, Morris instead of Nash for extra length and speed. Clark chasing a shooter or ready to help with a lob. Sacre on the ball is a good idea to help eliminate the lob or make it have to be a perfect pass.
Gasol almost blew that. in fact, he did. he really didnt' affect anything. He got caught watching the ball and the guards on the perimeter and his man snuck in behind him with lots of space for the lob. just a stupid lazy play by him. watch it closely and see how he gets lost and gives too much space.
I don't see MDA coaching any of the little things with these guys, other than when it was a 3 point game he told them not to leave the 3 point line and to let bynum go. Kobe and Clark failed to box out at least 5 times today.
