    Tell Mitchell to drive to the basket.

    If Crowder keeps clanking when playing PF put Ekpe in.

    Let Niang shoots more threes.

    We need athletic players who can attack the basket. Plain and simple.

    Our shooting isn't great, but I think what's being exposed here is our lack of athleticism driving to the hoop. Even playing Grayson more might help.

    Don't let Favors and Rubio shoot unless they are within 10 feet of the basket. If they get the open 3, tell them to drive to the hoop immediately and either look to score or kick to the open man on the perimeter. Tell Crowder to only shoot the 3 if he is open and has time to set himself, none of those forced threes. Tell Donovan to continually attack the basket and stop taking forced threes. With the continual attack of the basket, keep Jingles, Korver, and Niang on the perimeter ready to catch and shoot the 3. On defense, try to trap Harden but also don't let them get open for 3 in the corner. Keep Rudy back to protect the rim and prevent the lob. Maybe this is being unrealistic, after all I am not a coach.

    I really think this might work in game 3 with Houston, use Grayson Allen to guard Harden. Grayson is quick and a good defender. He is not afraid to guard a star like Harden. Houston is going for a title, and Jazz is not, we need to play hard defense and be aggressive. Nothing to lose. If Grayson gets into foul problem that is fine, but we need to create enough difficulty for Harden. Grayson Allen can be another Dante Exum for us. Dante did an excellent job guarding Harden last year, Grayson Allen could do the same.

    I'd like to be optimistic but we are just over matched by the Rockets. They have shooters who can't be stopped or covered no matter what we do. I see no scenario in which the Rockets shoot a low enough percentage where we can outscore them. We have no defensive scheme in which we can keep them from shooting lights out from 3 point range. They are in the same category as GS which means there hasn't been a defense invented that can keep them from outscoring us big time. I have no answers, do you?

    I want to see the Mitchell/Royce/Ingles/Crowder/Gobert or Favors lineup get serious minutes.

    Jerry Sloan once comment on how good Jeff hornacek was at defending , in his latter years , basically playing on one leg

    “He is able to stay in front of his man “

    With that quote , I think that would be a good start for game 3

    How come Favors isn’t getting more minutes? He has the best PER on the team. Seems to me we’d ride Favors a little more and not by having him stand in the corner and shoot 3’s.

    I hate all the 3’s we take. Yeah, we get open looks, but we repeatedly clank open looks. To be a 3 point shooting team, seems like you’d have to have the personnel, and I’m not sure the Jazz fit the criteria.

    From what I understand the reason we are employing the embarrassing gimmick defense is because we are scared of harden shooting threes and stepback threes in particular.
    Why are we so afraid of that again? Harden shot 36.8% from three this year. That's ok but nothing to freak out about. I'm fine with him taking and making threes at a 36/37 percent clip. That's what he shoots against defenses that play him straight up.
    Against the jazz and their gimmick defense in the playoffs harden is shooting 44% from three.

    The rockets as a team shot 36% from 3 in the regular season.
    Against the jazz gimmick playoff defense they are shooting 39% from three.

    Doesn't seem to be working.

    Won’t you have to watch to see if they’re doing it though?

    Quin has **** the bed in this matchup. I think it's obvious the players aren't buying what he's selling.

    I'll break it down for you: if Crowder is missing all his shots I would rather see Udoh take his minutes as Udoh is a better defender (including help defender) and only takes high percentage shots (tough to get production out of Crowder when he's shooting 16.7% from the field this series).

    I actually do have an answer for this situation. Houston is not that much better than Jazz actually. We beat them twice in the regular season. The problem we ran into right now is we are too afraid of foul trouble with Harden. If we have to lose by over 20 points per game, let the foul come. The key problem is Harden, we let him get into the paint freely and does what he wants to do there. That creates open shots for other players. We need to play Jazz basket ball and not Houston basket ball. Use Grayson Allen, get to Harden's body, be aggressive, let the foul comes. See who is afraid of body contact. That will change the game.

    Don't put Rubio on Harden.
    Don't stand behind Harden on defense.
