WTF? we got open looks all day for guys like MWP and Meeks who turned into garbage tonight. Seriously. If your coach and players are able to generate open shots then they've done their jobs
Well..... it's not all about just creating open looks, it's about getting players looks where they are efficient. Pau is open at the 3 and takes some..... according to your logic there, the shot is created, open than it's Pau's fault for being inefficient..... that is just foolish. MWP is not a 3 point specialist so if your offense is designed to get him open 3s than again you have not done your job. When you create long shots from the perimeter for spotty shooting you race directly into what transition up tempo teams want to do to you... catch you standing still, rebound and get out on the break....... Again MDAs offense plays right into the hands of our opponents, especially the ones that are athletic and want to get out on you.
There is too much standing around and no actual ball movement because of it. The only time they get the defense moving is when Nash is more aggressive within his game..... any other time it's a bunch of slow ball movement and contested shots unless it's the perimeter look. That IS NOT doing your job as a coach.
This team's hole issue is that it expands way too much energy not only running the offense but learning one. They first start one way, completely change after a dozen games......... this team is perfectly designed for a defensive minded philosophy that triggers offense..... this team is all offensive thinking and if it's not working than it's a long day in transition and on the other end of the floor...... bad mentality when you actually look at this roster........ unbalanced offense is not exactly helping them on the defensive end right now. They need a coach that is going to seriously hold them accountable on that end of the floor..... if they did they might find out they can run some with nash in there and get what they want out of creating TOs and rebounding. The best way to run is to create defensive stops..... not the other way around which is the MDA way....... just so HS.
