Been watching alot of Rockets games recently and they are very adept the short lob pass. Player drives deep into the lane, draws defense..throws very short lob to diving big...nearly impossible to stop.

ennis tonight was getting into the lane at will, and on several occasions had not one but two forwards wide open underneath who were begging for the lob. he never threw one.

of course he was great and this is not to take anything away from his game tonight..but with the "new" attacking Ennis commanding more attention from Helping D...this short lob is going to become more and more available.

That type of play would be outstanding in our system with Rak / Grant being the recipient of the pass off the penetration.

We were incredible at this with Scoop and Fab.

Actually, how few lobs do we have this year? Very strange. I chalk it up to lack of penetration and transition.
