and he put Gray in when JV was hurt because Gray is the only 1 that can body Hibbert
But we didn't play zone,we played man to man.
Now according to your theory, it is good idea to play zone with 3 slow bigs on the floor while trying to avoid 3?
So the way they were positioned JV would be left to defend top of the 3, Gray and Gay would be protecting the rim While Bargs
and DD would cover the sides, guess what would happen than, JV and Bargs
would be matched up against Hill (i think he was inbounding) and George, i think i don't have to explain further.. Luckily though Gay followed Geogre all the way to the 3 to contest the shot.
