Jazz have the Rockets right where they want them. Overconfident and complacent. Jazz in 5
More 80s Pistons ball...90s Pistons were all flash with Grant Hill (beyond the very early 90s, which was an extension of the 80s era Pistons).
Does anyone know why we changed up our entire defensive strategy for game 1? Why do something for 82 games and then change it all up for 1 game? Just curious, had this defense been successful before? Who used it before?
The Bucks used it against Harden when they played the Rockets two or three weeks ago. They had good success with it as they held Harden to just 9/26 shooting and they beat the Rockets by about 15 points.
When you try out new strategies in the post season that you have not prepared for during regular season, it’s probable that you will fail.
I woke up and feel good about tonight. Not sure why. But I do.
Let’s ****ing go.
Bucks used it to check Harden and it worked. There video of it out there labeled as how to defend Harden.
Rockets were ready for it. Watch that video and then highlights of Game 1. Houston's spacing Sunday night was completely different.
Don’t disagree with any of that.
I like a bigger sample size than one game when you are basing a whole defensive scheme change for an entire playoffs series.
Do we even know for sure that the scheme was the reason for harden and the rockets struggles in that bucks game anyway? Sometimes teams have bad nights. Could have been that the rockets just happened to have a bad night in that game and it had little to do with the defense.

Good points. I wasn’t defending it. I was just saying that’s what Snyder based his plan off of.
I expect to see the Jazz try the same defense with better execution.
The offense is every bit as worrisome as the defense. Really hope the Jazz can compete better.
Will Tucker go off like that again? His 3-straight 3's was a turning point, in my opinion.
Do people understand that we only scored 90 points? Against Houston? Do people really think that our defense was the problem here?
We had the same offensive problems in last year's playoff series against Houston. We just have a really hard time scoring against their switching defense. We need more players besides Donovan that can create their own shot.
We just have to manage our rotations better. I think Gobert did well when he showed up and forced the Harden floater. Harden, iirc, had one made floater. Other guys needs to close out better and pass the force. I expect we do better with the scheme.
On the other side of the ball, didn't we hire a greek coach to better attack switches? We tweaked some stuff attacking the switch but it wasn't very visible in game 1.
The sets Quin runs are designed to create "advantages" due to mismatches on switches. Unfortunately many teams are compiling rosters that minimize these advantages, as they have players that can effectively guard most positions. When your offense relies solely on these switches, you get into trouble. Which is why I wish the Jazz had sets with more off ball movement with back screens, etc.
I feel like the Jazz will make tonight a bit of a dog fight. If they do and muck up the waters, getting under the skin of the Rockets players, then it will put them in position to win and be their game to lose.
My bet is they do, they have to. Jazz by 5.
From what I've read I think most respectable people see that our offense is the bigger issue but there's still no excuse for 120+ points. We will never match them offensively with this roster. Defensively we can
