The defense never looked good. When we were up, it was only by 2 to 6 points. We were merely outscoring them, they scored 25 in the first quarter. And I think we need to break this mentality of offense first. Hopefully the team isn't thinking that way. As talented as this team is, we won't have problems scoring. Doc Rivers realized this in '08, n spoelstra did in 2010 as well. We need to rely on out defense, not offense. If we don't we won't be beating anyone, not even the spurs, because even though we're more talented, they can hang with ANYONE if it becomes an offensive competition...Chillbongo wrote:1) Bad offense leads to bad defense.
2) We have Steve Nash. An offensive system within itself. No stagnant ball/iso plays if we run Steve O.
3) Who says the bench cant continue to run the Princeton once we decide it's a moot point for starters?
4) The coaching staff needs to get their rotations down. And STICK to them. Spot changes are ok once in while for matchup purposes. I have yet to see Mike Brown establish set "rotations" in LA.
5) Mike Brown is the head coach. Don't matter "who's" offense it is. He's the man behind the schemes. His decision.
6) The defense looked good in the 1st quarter. Why? Because our offense was flowing. Good O= Good D. Denver adjusted their defense the rest of the game, causing confusion in our offense which led to our defensive failings. See item 1)

I think PnR's, and dwight n kobe post plays, should be run 60% of the time. I think this will eventauly happen. Nash is on the record for saying that he is in a peculiar position of trying to get the princeton going smoothly, yet getting in pnr's. Brown has openly said multiple times that Nash has free reigns on the offense. I just think that Nash being new, doesn't want to look bad coming down court and saying "ef this, i'm running a pnr", while everyone on the team knows that they're trying to get the princeton down. I think once everyone gets used to each other, and they can run princeton pretty effectively, nash would feel comfortable breaking it for more pnr's n playmaking. I don't see this as a big issue.
