no game thread but just incase anyone wants to post on it I thought I'd add one..
anyway is there any reason why Carlisle is still trying this Zone? It's so ridiculous how poorly it works.. Okay so it has worked on really good teams under some circumstances randomly, but no matter who the Mavs play (Bobcats, Wizards, Raptors, whomever) TEAR IT APART. We give them such an advantage because they dont have to even rely on being good they can just swing the ball around and hit 3s.
And to have a zone you need some sort of inside presence, and while Kaman rocks on Offense he is TERRIBLE on D and Rebounding.
any upper level coach knows how to beat our zone.
-Work the ball around till you get a 3 at the top of the key
have you seen every miss shot other teams have? Our zone puts us so out of position to even get a rebound unless Kaman or someone outmuscles the other opponent. Even if it does come to Kaman the opposing center at least gets a hand on it to shoot it out.
We are TERRIBLE at rebounding it's PATHETIC. It's the worse I've ever witnessed personally
