Can't stop thinking about that final 20 seconds of the Milwaukee game. Mitchell has Connoughton on him and Bogey has Bledsoe on him and yet Mitchell looks him off. At this point Bogey sets a screen for him and tails out for the corner three kick-out option. Mitchell proceeds to drive the lane and Lopez collapses for the easy block. The term we use around here is hero ball, but I'm not sure that's accurate as Snyder is the one with the playbook and Iso Mitchell down the stretch in close games has become the norm. Mitchell has been groomed for this role, he is the designated shot taker in close games, unless a timeout has been called and he becomes the decoy on the inbounds (first Milwaukee game). We are too predictable in these games where Mitchell exclusively goes Iso for the last shot IMO. Watching a Clippers game the other day and Doc was asked who gets the ball at the end of close games - Kawhi, PG or LouWill, and Doc goes, "it depends entirely on match-ups". Why aren't we employing that approach? Bogey had a mismatch with Bledsoe and could have had a nice little pull-up shooting over the top or the shorter man. I mean I love DM, he does so many things well, but is he the kind of scorer that should be regularly closing out games for us in iso mode? I know on some nights, he'll have the quickness advantage, but he'll almost never have the height advantage. We need more options in these situations IMO, and of course Bogey who's done it before with Indy needs to be part of that. I know it's anathema right now to consider Conley for this, but he's done it before as well and he will improve (he's also the best feed man for Gobert). I also like the "6th man" Iso option for a guy like Mudiay similar to LouWill or Vinnie Johnson (microwave) back in the day.
