Running should happen all by itself - focus on the stops, and the transition game will come. Defense has a long way to go before transition offense is a concern.
I agree with the uneasiness, but Casey did qualify that quite a bit. To me it sounds like he just doesn't want it walked up. He wants the pace picked up, not necessarily for quick shots, a la Jay, but rather to get an advantage over the defense setting up. It could be a very good way to get Valančiūnas more involved if he is able to beat his man down the court.
