ah - gotcha. I think a lot of that can be attributed to Triano's gameplan. There wasn't as much emphasis on running screen and rolls as with Mitchell for instance. Not by a long shot. The main emphasis was on early offense where Bosh was asked to beat his guy down the court more than anything else. When you look at the numbers that these stats guys are talking about - 187 plays - I think that bears that out. That doesn't seem like a lot of plays off the pick and roll. That said, there was till more popping out on those picks that remained later in the season, with Bosh not as strong and defenses packing the paint.
