Just an observation from 48hrs that has passed by...

My fellow casual members,

Yes it was a tough loss (so therefore no need to beat a dead horse about the game), however no one (from what I've seen on CH) has talked about was the 'defensive adjustments' made by JT3. The game was a very hard pill to swallow, but as we know was that, the only individual who was the total difference maker was Kris Joseph who had a career night.

As we know he did his damage from the perimeter, and yes the 2-3 and Man-to-Man was effective (for the most part), but I was shocked to see JT3 didn't at least use the 3-2 or 1-3-1 zone against the Orange. The Orange didn't have an 'effective' inside game (even though Melo had a few dunks via penetration and certain lapses in responsibility). So therefore we can say it was more of a non-factor.

We as fans understand is that each zone has a weakness, but in the aspect of strategy, I believed that these particular looks (3-2 & 1-3-1 matching/trapping zone) would've made Joseph kick out the ball to another cold shooting player from the perimeter. Waiters/Jardine/Triche were pretty much out of the mix from the outside.

What is your take on this....

Stay Casual, my friends.
