Stole my words. Nash is Fisher+


Man that's an insult to Nash. Fisher made big shots from time to time but he was pretty horrible for most of the game otherwise and his decision making was infuriating. Also look at Nash's 4th quarter numbers this season, they make Fisher look like a chump.


Yes it is.

Nash can make layups.


You jinxed it. :man5: Nash missed two easy layups down the stretch tonight.

You know that Fisher was among the 10 worst shooters in the last 10 years stats wise right ? Lol at comparing Nash and D Fish shooting

Terrible shooting night for Nash unfortunately. He's going to have to step up in Kobe's absence.

He's been having to sacrifice for a while now so that he and Kobe could play with each other.

Now is his chance to show the critics that they're right and he's still capable of being one of the leading assist men in the NBA. That he should be controlling the ball more. With Kobe out, we're going to need Steve more than ever.

That means he should do it even more. Nash and Dwight should be elite in that category.

One thing I dont understand is how the Nash/Dwight pick and roll hasnt been extremely dominant this year. According to the synergy stats or w/e last year Nash was the best p/r point guard, and Dwight was the best finisher on p/r.

Right?

I love having Nash for shooting and situational playmaking, but he just hasn't been able to get it going consistently with Howard. Odd.

its also bc of spacing. we dont have the 3 point shooters that the suns or magic had. and even if it seems like we do the defense will dare us to shoot and metta and meeks are missing most of them so theyre going to keep crowding dwight in the paint and collapsing when he rolls bc they are not afraid of metta bricking wide open 3's.

to me its like they can live with metta shooting 2/7 from 3 a game if that means they eliminate nash dwight pnr. good trade off if you ask me. some nights we make them pay...others we dont.

Dwight's movement & quickness is going to do nothing but improve.. He'll set better screens & roll faster. Next season we should see the real potential of the Nash/Dwight p&r. Better 3 point shooting from the SF position would help the p&r a ton. Teams are able to collapse because Ron doesn't make them pay enough.

There are a ton of reasons , the main one being lack of spacing and opponents forcing us to beat them by the 3pts shot

- Metta World Brick
- Nash has been slower than ever since his injury
- D12 hasn't been himself physically
- D12 hasn't the right footing to roll to the basket from beyond the FT area and finish at the basket ala Stat or even Gortat ... opportunities for him off the PNR action would come more from getting deep position and sealing the opponent helper with the quick entry pass coming from the wing ... back to the Metta World Brick/lack of spacing issue


We'll see more of the Nash/D12 action with Kobe out ... but yeah opponents will still be fine with getting beaten from the 3pt line over D12 getting easy pts at the basket ...

The greatest benefit from the Nash/D12 PNR is D12 recent solid screens free Nash up for a good amount of midrange Js off the dribble , something Steve is very good at

I want Steve to shoot 15 times today. We need his scoring without Kobe.

Steve Nash banged up his calf at Indiana, but D'Antoni doesn't think it's an issue. He finished the Pacers game & will start tonight.

Classic Steve Nash tonight. Great shooting (after a somewhat slow start) and made a bunch of great passes. Him and Blake running the O is really a beautiful thing to watch

He has one of the best running jumpers I've ever seen. And he is unbelievably clutch. Always hits big shots for his team. He does not look 39, not even close.

Great game from Nash - beautiful to watch. He and Blake look really good together. I remember cringing when Blake would swap out to SG, but now everything just seems to flow. Granted, it always looks pretty when long range jumpers are falling - but it's no accident that Nash brings out the best in everyone.

I think the biggest thing he does right now is demand defensive focus. All over. Nash has the ability from anywhere on the court to immediately make a defense pay.

Took him a little while to get going, but he got there. He hit a few big shots in the 4th and was racking up assists in bunches. Good job running the offense and holding down the fort.

he was really looking like suns nash out there tonight. was really going out of his way to set others up and passing up open shots but took them and made them when we needed it. great game and plays well off ball and with the ball with blake at the 2.

his defense actually wasnt too bad. i thought throughout the game there were stretches where the team had so much energy on D that everyone was moving and rotation and contesting so well including nash. it was good to see.
