Default Avery Johnson is damn smart

I havent watched any of the games all the way through due to other commitments but avery johnson has figured out the perfect way to stop the heat.

For example, when double teaming shaq, johnson doubles him with the people guarding non-shooters or shooters that suck. So he leaves jason terry and adrian griffin on wade and j-will and people guarding haslem and walker go off and double team shaq which forces shaq to pass out and then ends up in a missed shot.

it's not really something innovative. it's working because the team isn't built around Shaq. if they had shooters like last year they wouldn't be able to play D like this.

i do agree that Avery is a great coach though. he's good at adjustments. we'll see if Riley responds.
