you need to understand that the triangle is not a set play or even a group of plays, it is a formation to spread the defense and set up mismatches, from the triangle you can run pick and roll pick and pop three pointers from an open man pass the ball into the paint or whatever you want to do, so just because you see the team use the pick and roll does not mean they abandoned the triangle...
as for smush and his defense ya right ok... you guys just keep hanging your hat on him and there won't be a game 5...
