The one match-up that went horribly wrong for us was David West vs. Ryan Anderson. Going into the game, this was the one that concerned me the most because West has old man speed and Anderson is a threat from deep and to drive. I had hoped that West's physicality in the post would act as a counterweight to Anderson's impact on the perimeter, but West (and later Tyler) couldn't get much going down low, and their pass out attempts were more likely to end up as turnovers than easy baskets. It seemed like we were making a concerted effort to go to West, but that effort did not produce favorable results.
1st quarter success was a combination of great ball movement and Orlando playing a little lax. Once Orlando turned up the intensity on defense, we reacted poorly. Players started to hesitate before making the pass and started playing selfish ball.
We need to be more confident in our ball movement, like we were in the 1st quarter and against the Lakers. The fact that we can play like that in stretches is great, we just need to learn how to adjust and maintain discipline under different defensive pressure. A lot of that will be on the development of our guards, in learning how to read defenses and controlling our pace.
Because of our how great we looked against the Lakers, Im not worried at all. I wouldn't be surprised if we pull an upset over the next few games.
You can start the postgame threads from now on if you want too, I'm just the one opening them because last year we got into a point were nobody wanted to do it anymore and I took over, If you want to be the man, go ahead or stop
We got caught in the perfect storm. Coming home off a long trip, after getting a big win in LA before heading right back out on the road. Then we faced a team who got dismantled last night coming in with a chip on their shoulder.
Vnzla81 is correct. There was a tendency in the past for post-game threads to pop up much, much later after losses than wins. As to whether the post-game thread should have in-depth analysis, I don't think that it should. Ideally, the post-game thread should aim to be informative (with a final score or box score included) rather than express a certain opinion that will then serve to frame the post-game debate, if that makes any sense.
