Frankly, the biggest concern I have with the offense is the lack of pick and rolls. Why does Lowry carry the ball up the court, hand off to a big, then run around the court? Lowry is our PG - I want him initiating the offense, not our bigs. And with Bargs off the ball (especially when Fields is off the court) we have the spacing to have a killer Lowry-JV or Lowry-Amir PnR.

Lowry being taken off the ball in half or more of our offensive sets is a misuse of assets. Let the PnR be the first option on any play, then run some off ball stuff to get an open curl or deep post for DD, then at the 8 second mark reset to a pick and pop with Lowry driving to the rim. Sure, vary it sometimes, but this team seems built for that sort of offense and it bugs me that I haven't seen that sort of set run consistently (or at all, really).
