Analysis of Chris Bosh's game (against the Spurs)
 

bjjs 03-16-2011 11:05 AM

The analysis is done trying to prove a perception that this guy already has in place of Bosh which he quite clearly states at the beginning of the video.

Poor analysis.

It's kind of laughable.

He says Bosh is settling for jumpers, and then he promptly says that is what the Spurs seem to be giving him. OK coach Nick...is that light bulb turning on yet?

He hits a few...the Spurs guard him and all of a sudden he's going to net like this guy says he should of been doing all along.



Maybe hitting that jump shot when it was given to him wasn't a bad idea after all??? Maybe that's actually what opens up space for him???



This analysis is so bad...Dampier is occupying the low block and he's ripping on Bosh for not joining him, instead, occupying open space on the weak side and swishing open jumpers. He should of just taken options away from Wade and LBJ and left them forcing contested shots.. OOOOOOKKKKKK.

This guy needs to stop making videos.

I don't think I've ever seen Bosh do a pick and roll in Toronto.

Bosh needs to be aggressive and play in the post more, I don't like him taking jump shots and I know he doesn't like it either.

just because he's one of the taller guys on the floor doesn't mean he can catch it in the post and be effective. dude has no post game. he's effective from the elbow working in.

He doesn't really have the body to dominate down low. Maybe if he was a bit bigger.

I read a piece about this the other day - he rolled more than 50 percent of the time last season. So either the stats are whack or you are my friend.

this is the article I was referring to - written after Bosh discussed his need to play bigger than he had been -http://espn.go.com/blog/truehoopmiamiheat/post/_/id/5148/does-chris-bosh-have-a-point

Synergy Sports tracks every player’s shots from the floor. For Bosh, we can see how he gets his shots, where he gets his shots and how effective he is when he gets those shots.

In Miami this season, 49.6 percent of Bosh’s shot attempts have been jumpers. In Toronto last season, the jump shot made up of just 30.9 percent of his overall shot repertoire. We rarely see a player’s shot distribution change that dramatically year-to-year, but there’s a reason: his role has dramatically changed from last season.

Bosh was targeted by the Heat to stretch the floor with his inside-out game. As a finesse player with a silky midrange jumper, he can open up the paint and keep the big man guarding him away from the rim. Theoretically, that opens up the lane for explosive attackers like James and Wade to penetrate to the rim.

This is all part of the plan. Erik Spoelstra likes to anchor Bosh on the right elbow so he can facilitate the offense, using handoffs to James and Wade or pick-and-rolls to create mismatches and disruption.

But if you’ve watched Bosh over the past couple of seasons, you’ll notice a huge difference in what Bosh does after setting the pick. Following the screening action on the ball, Bosh typically pivots to the perimeter where he can spot up for the midrange jumper. Yes, the pick-and-pop was a large part of his arsenal last season in Toronto, but Bosh has become almost exclusively a pick-and-pop player in Miami.

Synergy tells us that of Bosh’s 187 plays after the pick-and-roll last season in Toronto, 50 percent of them were pick-and-pops while 46 percent were rolls to the basket. That’s a pretty even split. This season in Miami though? He pick and pops 84 percent of the time after the screen and rolls just 10 percent (the remaining small portion consists of Bosh slipping the pick).

i really find it hard to believe he rolled almost 50% of the time. he never set the greatest screens, so maybe the roll just wasn't that effective, which is why i can't seem to remember it much.

I do think it was weighted more towards the first half of the season. It is a little too easily forgotten just how big he played to start things off. That whole stretch of winning at a high rate featured him going to the basket a lot. And that is also where he was getting to the line an awful lot.

thought 03-16-2011 01:44 PM

i agree he did a good job getting to the rim before the all-star break. i just don't remember many clean screen and rolls, with a pick, seal, and a roll towards the basket with a catch.

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.

Why are we looking at Bosh's game?
He isnt a raptor.
He wasnt playing the raptors.

The guy can ball. Nuff said.

24 + 10 avg. over his last 3 games (since he asked for the ball more).

Victories against 2 of the best teams in the game (LAL and SA).

60% FG

More than half of his points scored IN THE PAINT.

And there are STILL people criticizing his game lol.... jesus.
