I think Q is the most patient forward with his footwork I can remember. He'll fake turn, fake and turn again to get a shot. I think the travel called on him was that a ref couldn't believe he could move that much without moving his pivot foot,DVR’d the game and just finished up.
Va Tech is a good matchup for us. No dominant big man and smallish guards. It was clear our game plan was to punish their small back court and attack with the bounce. We will beat this team 7 of 10.
We will have success against teams that can’t punish our smallish front court.
Marek drew what seemed like 10 fouls today. We had a somewhat friendly whistle in the first half especially.
Dear Buddy. No more 12 dribble back down iso fadeaway 12 footers please. It’s a horrible pct play. I know it was probably part of the game plan to post up their little guts, but it’s not what he can do.
Quincy is the most improved player in the league right? He’s climbing the pantheon of post players quickly. His footwork might be top five already. Wallace, Otis Hill, Hak are my top 3 here...Q might be 4...I’m sure I’m leaving a couple out.
Watch the difference in off the ball movement when Kadary is running the point. Players cut because they know they’ll get the ball EXACTLY where they can do the most with it. That kind of feel is rare.
Nice energy by Griffin early. Set the tone. He’s a good player, needs seasoning though.
Not having Sidibe really limits our upside. At some point we’re gonna run into a team with a post presence who will murder us.
I’d love to see 4-8 minutes per game with Kadary Griffin up top, with Q, Marek and Jesse. ...and press. Use up Jesse’s fouls trying to protect the rim.
