Miles), but they don't ISO nearly as much anymore. I think last year they were first in ISO plays for Lowry and DeRozan? This year they have truly reinvented the team style of play and have the idenity to share the ball.
This year as a team they're 7th in the league in assists per game. Last year? They were dead last in the whole league in assists.
They're shooting the three better, DeRozan is shooting the three. Why can't this team make it when they took two from Cleveland tying the series the year Cleveland was heavily favored and won the championship? Grant it, the got sweated the following year, but injuries played a role in that.
