we would worry less about people getting back too late giving a fast break and being in the wrong position on defense while keeping our confidence up on both ends. maybe this game would of been closer.
thats what i got from his post at least.
makes sense. fire casey.
I agree that the offense can effect the defense, but they have gone away from the completely stupid high paced offense of rushed shots and little movement that was indeed very problematic for an already weak defense. They started off last game looking like there was some trust developing. Executing on offense takes one time to develop. There's no way you overlook defensive improvement in order to accelerate that. Figure out the proper pace that best units your chances, yes. Try to build on whatever chemistry is there, yes. But without being able to rely on getting any stops consistently, in the half court or in transition, just leaves any team stuck in a hole.
Colangelo would love to see an offense that liked better, and by trading baskets and catching a few breaks, win a few more games and hide what desperately needs to be done for a little longer.
