Come on kenny, during the NO game everyone (except ty) knew to put in favors for defense on the last NO possesion while the game was going on not after the fact.
Most of us wanted the big 3 lineup all year last year but didn't get it until the season was almost over.
Most of us wanted bell to either not play at all or al least be getting very few minutes all of last year.
And most of us have wanted jefferson to be held accountable on defense all along as well.
None of those thing required hindsight (at least not for me) and all of them should be pretty obvious to a good head coach.
These two run high-low pretty efficiently (something I've been calling for more of). Millsap continues to stretch the floor further each season & that only adds to how well they can play together.
Interior defense isn't an issue either when you have competent front court defenders. Jefferson is a great post defender, Millsap is good enough and gets a ton of steals.
Quoting stroked79 makes the worst sig.
in all seriousness, i just thought the timeout was called because sap was down on the floor with 6 seconds to go. and time being precious it was a disadvantage playing 4 on 5
Great win for the Jazz, but I'm not ready to say coaching had much to do with it.
