Suns offense to change a bitPosted by Inside Hoops
The Arizona Republic (Paul Coro) reports: The Suns’ offense will be different. Based on what sets coach Terry Porter has implemented in two days, it appears that it will be more motion-oriented and deliberate at times. Porter embraces a transition game to reward stops, but there will be no constant “run-and-gun.” It’s more “cut-and-what?” now as they learn plays. “From what I’ve seen so far it’s very different, but he’s not going to throw everything at us at once,” forward Grant Hill said. “It’ll be interesting to see if we totally get away from some of the old stuff.” Porter has used each session to walk the Suns through plays. Part of the reason Porter was hired was his ability to blend new and old, having spent time as a player and coach under Rick Adelman’s similar style. Under Mike D’Antoni, the Suns averaged 110.1 points last season and led the NBA in field-goal shooting the past three seasons. Alvin Gentry returned to the Suns bench, in part to help maintain some of the offense… Don’t expect Amaré Stoudemire experimenting out there anymore. He wants to post up more.
