Instead, we leave Al and Sap hanging out to dry on the initial post entry. They pass out when they're doubled, and a wing player creates an ugly jumper, usually Mo.
Just for the record: Mo Williams is averaging 16 shots a game. That's the highest of his career, and this is a contract year. The plus side is his shooting percentage is pretty good. The downside is he's presently shooting at career high averages. With regression to the mean, those same 16 shots will look uglier and uglier.
Now I see what you were saying originally. The problem is they don't have AJ in the second unit. Can't replicate an offense when your offense is... pass it inside, stand around and watch Jefferson.
Incidentally, that is why Marvin is having such blah numbers imo
I liked that Hayward moved well without the ball and stayed aggressive. He got a little out of control on a few drives but he'll get better at staying under control and drawing fouls.

Should Mo Williams be leading the team in shot attempts every night?"
That's a very tactful way of saying our offense is a mess. In another of his factoids, he pointed out that after 4 games neither Al nor Paul have led the team in points. And they're like 3 and 4 in shots. Mo has taken 16 shots a game, Foye is averaging 10. And that doesn't take into account real shots versus box score shots. This is absurd.
And not that it would matter in Ty's offense, or that we would have resigned him, but AK is just killing in Minny. Better than any player we currently have. I will start DVR'ing some of these games to see how they're using him. But my guess is he hasn't shot one curl all season. My other guess is he's beasting cutting to the basket like Ronnie Brewer used to do when we had a multifaceted offense. And my last guess is they're posting him like we should have done the whole time he was here.
Wow, I'm ****ing shocked that Corbin doesn't know how to orchestrate an offense. Shocked.
(first update) Offseason to-do list:
1. Let Mo, Foyeeee3, Al (s&t?), Watson, and Tinsley go.
2. Re-sign Carroll
3. Draft McCollum, Schroeder, and Giannis (leave the latter two in Europe for a year [maybe two years for Giannis]).
4. Sign Tony Allen
5. Try to keep Millsap. If that doesn't work, explore s&t options.
6. Remove Corbin. Hire Brad Stevens or SVG.
7. Sign Calderon to a one-year (2 max) deal, or see if the cash-strapped Lakers will let us absorb Nash's last year.
