We agree on this.... this style rarely if EVER has won a chip....

Not sure we can play a better half than that with this group yet we are only up 8.

Was it 62 points last game's first half? We're put up 182 points in 6 quarters since D'Antoni was hired.

When is the last time we had BOTH PG's for us playing well and knocking down shots?


Well...

I... hmm... honestly, I'm not sure.

As much as I've complained, can't disagree with that, at least we're winning and it's more fun to watch.

I don't think we will be this bad on defense, I think everyone is just getting too hyped on cause our offense is flowing so good that they lapse for a second on the defensive end which is the difference. Even with these defensive lapses, with Nash back how can they actually outscore this offense?

Repeat this, and it's a 16 point win. You can look at it that way if you want.

And I think we can repeat this easily. It looked effortless. Brilliant games from 24 and 12.

A few days with MDA and he hasn't coached a game yet.. and we are playing some amazing offense :bow:

I have no idea how Mike Brown had us playing that bad on the offensive end.

gotta have the team get to know eachother better and dwight 100% and our D will get better and our offense can only get even better with Nash and 100% dwight. cant wait! kobe wont have to assist this much but even if he does with Nash it would be cool

2nd law of the D'Antoni effect:

3 pt shooter + D'Antoni system = more wide open 3 pt shots + 1.5x(increase in 3pt shooting ability)

It's truly a mystery, the difference isn't even a minor change, it's a complete night and day change. If I were Brown I'd be pretty embarrassed. We struggled to score 100 last year, we are on pace for 136 with ~6 practices under MDA's belt.

So what happened? Was there something about the NY team that sprung this guy for over a dozen games? This was sports phenomenon that needs to be explored. You called it though and everyone isn't seeing it. Needs to be analyzed.

It's the D'Antoni effect
Every PG that has played in this system has looked like an All-Star, only to drop off in production when they're traded.
I should get an assist for that. It's an intentional pass to oneself, so it's an assist. That way people can't say all I do is shoot.

When Nash comes back it'll be interesting to see who will be backup PG. I like what Morris has shown and has improved a lot...his tempo and energy would really do us well in the 2nd unit, but idk if he can run the PG for that unit as hes just play SG with Kobe playing PG with the starters. I like Duhon and what hes done alos familiar with DAntoni but Morris is nice so maybe they can split backup mins

It's so fun to watch Kobe play like this, but when Nash comes back he'll stop handling the ball as much. Probably a good thing though because he's exerting a lot more energy doing everything on offense
