I would much rather see World Peace try to exploit the mismatch than Kobe... 6'6 vs 6'7 and WP was the guy launching airballs and bricks all night. 3-12. Regardless I was glad to see the Jazz get a W.
I dont think that it matters who the Jazz had guarding him. Kobe went into me time the last 5 mins of the game. He was going to draw fouls on whoever we put on him. That being said I am overall unhappy with the D from Foye so far, hope he gets that part of his game going.
You are talking statistics and math. You talk like you have never played and had that "I can hit any shot out there" feeling and had it actually happen.
While there does need to be some collaboration between the math nerd assistant coach and the head coach, the HC still needs to go with the hot hand.
Never go in against a Sicilian when death is on the line!
Well that seems to be the trick with Foye. He doesn't look like a closer so you have to figure out when in that period of maybe 6-4 minutes to go to take him out in favor of a more steady player.
Who that player is, could be one of several. I'd go with the best defender so Marvin or 3 bigs.

David Blatt (former coach of Russian team) did exact that in games at the Olympics this year. Corbin is far from such a feeling of the game.
When did Foye hit his last three? Sometime over 6 minutes left if memory serves. Lakers called timeout. Foye had one more three point attempt after the six minute mark. It was a miss. Did he still have the hot hand with 2 minutes to go?
