I think Royce is one of those dudes teams will test. If he misses a couple of shots early, teams are going to leave him open because they know he struggles with confidence in his shot. If he hits them early they have to be more respectful and have to at least run at him.
Agreed.

I hope they find time to give Royce a few days off. It’s pretty clear to me that he’s playing through something.... just let it rest, broughs.

Yes, if they stop randomly, they also continue randomly. It's like the guy chasing bets at a roulette table, think black is "due" because the last 5 were red.
I've had to endure a few conversations with someone explaining their roulette "strategy," ugh.

It's like a coach has decisions to make. Who do we want our best defenders on? Who should we double? If we are going to leave someone open who should that be?

Do we leave ingles open? Donovan? Conley, niang? Clarkson? Bojan? Royce? Then they might look at how each of those players is CURRENTLY playing and make the decision to leave the guy open who is currently in a shooting slump to the tune of 2-21 or whatever and who isn't even close on many of his wide open 3's.

Or the coach could choose to really defend that player tightly with one his best defenders and not use his defender to help and instead let one of the other guys who is shooting better be open instead because a while back the guy who is shooting horribly was shooting pretty good.

I know what most coaches would do.

Royce, because is a low usage player, not because you have a mistaken belief in how slumps work. However, the goal is to avoid leaving anyone open.

Do we leave ingles open? Donovan? Conley, niang? Clarkson? Bojan? Royce?

There is a 0% chance they leave Mitchell, Conley, or Ingles open, if they they went 0 for their last 20.

No one is putting their best defender on Royce (again, low usage).

I know what most coaches would do.
Put their best defenders where they have the most impact, right?
