Roy's defense, by design, wants you to shoot 3's instead of 2's. The problem is our hedging and rotations are so bad this year that we leave guys wide open every time.
Zeller and Henson were great in that area. You would assume McAdoo would be because he's quicker than both. Alas he's not.
I agree, but they were hitting pull-up jumpers in transition over and over again. Didn't think something like that was sustainable but they sustained for a good stretch.
Like the smallball lineup Roy went with in the second half with Hairston, McDonald, and Bullock all on the floor at the same time. If they could defensive rebound better (which they should since Reggie and P.J. are two of the better rebounders on the team) that could be a pretty dangerous lineup.
