I think we should all keep in mind that Toronto offense is run and gun. Which we are doing with a great degree off success (first in the league in fast break points). The half court is a little less formed. We seem to be shifting from a drive off of a high screen with Barbosa and/or Derozan. Or pick and pop with Caldron and Bargs. The need for spacing trumps the need for movement in these situations, so we end up with a lot of flat footed jump shots as second options. This becomes more evident when the rotation is shrunk and there is far more desperation to keep up. The last few games have been lost by margins of almost 20 points consistently. Can you really blame guys for shooting out of their range. Traino, should be looking for something more dynamic, I agree, but imo there is disconnect when it comes to executing the game plan. Which makes question this teams ability to deal with complexity.
