Thread: Jarrett Jack Attacking the Interior

    Default Jarrett Jack Attacking the Interior

    While he sometimes looks wild and out of control, I must say that I really
    like what I've seen from Jarrett Jack and his penchant for penetrating and
    attacking the interior. He seems very bold when going in against the bigs.

    Jack is a physical point guard - what he lacks in pure quickness and pure point guard skills - he makes up for with his physical play - and one way you can tell he is phycial is that he gets to the free throw line quite a bit

    It's interesting, I can't remember the last time the Pacers had guys who could penetrate at will, now you have two guys at the point who do so in distinctively different ways.

    This season has the makings of something really different.

    You have point guards who can penetrate and big men who can pass. Both things that puts enormous amounts of pressure on opposing defenses.

    The thing I'm looking for the next few games is the point guard penetration to lead to easy shots by other players much more often.

    I got a feeling Dunleavy is going to thrive in this offense.

    He's a bit slow, so he relies on positioning and perfect execution. Last year, he had almost no space to work with. This year, he will have a ton.

The whole team listens to him, and it makes my job a lot easier. Having players like him is what pro basketball is all about for me.” —Larry Brown

    Jack's biggest offensive strength is his ability to run the pick & roll and to use picks to attack the basket. He's has an excellent ability to split the double teams that come off of pick and rolls and then attack and wreak havoc on defenses. I just hope that we realize this and utilize it as the high pick and roll has not been a huge staple in our offense.

    Also, I think that giving the ball to Rasho or Roy on the elbow and then posting Jack against a smaller PG or getting him the ball on backcuts will be a good play for us.
