We are asking our point gaurd to match up with their shooting gaurd. It has cost us three games I think. If I can pinpoint it to anything it has to be this. To bad Lance had to mess everything up, because he was the only point gaurd we had big enough to guard Rose, and that would have allowed us to leave Paul George on Korver or Brewer and not Collison or Price sprinting late after the shooter about 6 inches to short to affect the shot.
Simple and plain, we need a bigger point gaurd if putting Paul George on Rose will ever work. They are exploiting us at the SG spot when we are on defense and the Bulls have leaned on it to win. Finally last night Frank did a situational substitution. So either Lance has a miraculous turnaround in 24 hours (he won't), or we get exploited by their SG again.
Actually I think just leaving Collison to gaurd Rose may have been the better option. I'd rather have Paul George playing help defense on Rose and if he has to sprint back to his shooter he has like 11 more inches in wing span to affect the shot.
Will we let Collison and Price gaurd Rose next game or are we going to live and die by this strategy?
