Brian Ward: Keep Pouting, Evan


http://www.depressedfan.com/assets_c/2013/02/poor_evan_turner_020513-thumb-510x212-14323.jpg

Standing on the weak side, with his man a few feet away, waving his arms wildly in
the air as if he's open. Holding his hands out at his sides, begging for a foul while the
other team is busy converting his turnover into a transition hoop. Shoving someone
out of the way after they've dunked on him so he can retrieve the ball and pass it
inbounds. Pointing fingers when he's in the wrong spot on the defensive end and his
man gets an easy look. Raise your hand if these things seem like Evan Turner's
signature moves.

Evan Turner is a subpar athlete for the NBA game. That's fine. That's OK. His jumper,
while greatly improved from distance, is still broken. That's OK. His handle, while
flashy, isn't enough to get him by anyone. That's alright too. At this point, it's safe to
say that Turner is who he is. A number two pick who was not worth the number two
pick in the NBA draft. He's been given a chance to reach his potential, and he's pretty
much done it. He's a guy who will grab boards for you. He can run the point for a half
-dozen minutes at a time in a limited way, and he's even surpassed his potential in
that he's hitting a high percentage of three point looks (if he's spoon fed by someone
else's hard work).

Everything in that paragraph is regrettable. True, but regrettable. Once in a while, he
gets a matchup he can take advantage of and he puts some points on the board. Every
once in a while his 20-footer is falling and he can score on anyone (because anyone
will give him 20-footers all night long). He's a role player in the NBA. A role player
being paid too much money, but that's because he was drafted about 15 slots too early
after a fool's gold run at the college level. That mistake is on Tony DiLeo, Rod Thorn
and Ed Stefanski, not Evan Turner.

I've come to the point where...CONTINUE READING AT DEPRESSED FAN (http://www.depressedfan.com/basketball/sixers/keep-pouting-evan.php)

Jared Dubin: Pacers, Sixers Using Flex-y Screens to Create Open Looks

Welcome back to The 3-Point Play, a semi-regular recurring feature here at HoopChalk.
Every so often, I’ll take a quick look at sets from three different teams that have
something in common. Rather than devoting a separate post to each of them, they’ll all
be grouped together here. Today, we’ve got the Pacers, Sixers and Clippers freeing
players up with flex screening.

<iframe width="560" height="315" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/JmvhZIbyJqk" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen=""></iframe>

We’ll start in Indiana, with the Pacers leading the Bulls by four points with about a minute
and a half left in the game. George Hill brings the ball up the court and swings it over to
Roy Hibbert at the top of the key, kicking off the flex motion. Hibbert then hands it to
Lance Stephenson moving from right to left just as Paul George sets a back screen for
David West on the right block.

West floats along the baseline and ends up with great position on the left side. The idea
here seems to be to make it look like the play is to post up West on the left block. That’s
about as good a decoy option as the Pacers can design. West is one of the best post-up
players in the league, and he was 11-for-18 with 25 points at the time.

However, at the same time West is floating to the opposite block, Hibbert is coming to
set a pin-down screen for George. Jimmy Butler, trailing George on the play because he
appeared to be contemplating a switch with Luol Deng when George screened for West,
gets knocked too far off course to credibly contest George’s shot, and George knocks
down the open three.

<iframe width="560" height="315" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/2jaPVYcAiYw" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen=""></iframe>

In Philadelphia, the Sixers ran almost the exact same set for Jrue Holiday on the first
play of the game. There were a few slight differences, starting with the alignment. While
the Pacers had George and West on the low block with Hill, Hibbert and Stephenson
outside, the Sixers eventually wind up in a horns set with Holiday handling the ball at the
top of the key, Spencer Hawes and Thaddeus Young at opposite elbows, and Evan Turner
and Nick Young in each corner.

Holiday enters the ball to Hawes at the left elbow and cuts down the middle of the lane.
Technically, that’s option number one on the play. If Holiday flashes open, Hawes can hit
him with the pass for a layup. He doesn’t though, and then Holiday sets the first screen
in the flex action – for Turner coming from the right baseline across to the left block.

That’s option number two – Turner reads Holiday’s screen and decides whether to come
under or over it, and if he’s open, Hawes can hit him with a pass for a layup. Turner
doesn’t flash open, so he just continues to the opposite block.

Young then comes down...CONTINUE READING AT HOOP CHALK (http://hoopchalk.com/2013/02/05/pacers-sixers-and-clippers-using-flex-y-screens-to-create-open-looks/)

The NBA thought they had us right where they wanted us, playing three straight nights. They're angry we won the first two and beat one of their sacred cows (Chicago), and are leading in this one.

When Paul George tries to split two defenders its really odd to watch. He never does it smoothly like Dwyane Wade or Harden per say, the ball almost always gets knocked away or loose, and yet somehow he tends to always come up with it and make something good happen lol

That was a great move by OJ.

As for Roy, OJ literally took the ball out of his hands. That would be a little annoying. I don't think it's a major long-term issue; I think OJ just knows he's gonna get a lot of burn tonight and is raring to go.

We don't suck at it exactly. We're just below par. We are 21st with 74.5% to be precise. Miami and Houston are tied at 15h with 75.3%.

The thing is that last year we were shooting 78.1%. We were 5th last year and that same figure would have us tied with Orlando at 10th.

The 6ers haven't sent out the info, NBA.com's isn't workin either. They're not just inept on the floor it seems.

I'm catching stats on cbs while watching the game feed. They're showing Roy with 3 blocks but the feed has him at 4 though.

There is no stats to be found for this game. Nothing on ESPN, as has been mentioned, but there is also nothing at all on NBA.com or Yahoo. If i order league pass now can i watch the 2nd half of the game? They forced my hand. I think i picked a bad game to decide and finally order it

We don't suck at it exactly. We're just below par. We are 21st with 74.5% to be precise. Miami and Houston are tied at 15h with 75.3%.

The thing is that last year we were shooting 78.1%. We were 5th last year and that same figure would have us tied with Orlando at 10th.
