    I really like Max’s take here. Efficiency in shooting assumes what shots are able to be created through their offense. If they’re wide open in that spot, then not taking it is less efficient than a contested layup. I just can’t take a coach like D’Antoni who refuses to adjust seriously

      Everyone knows that. He’s one of those coaches who will tally up a ton of wins but won’t win anything

    Perk isn’t wrong. If you run Houston off the three point line where are they going to go? The free throw line. They’re offense is so predictable and infuriating. They ruin the game. It’s just 3 pointers and free throws. That’s not fun basketball to watch.

    You’re an idiot if you don’t find the Rockets predictable. It’s Harden dribbling doing his iso at the 3 point line and everyone just standing looking at him most of the time. And when he gives the ball up because he’s getting pressure, he’s a passive guy looking at the ball moving around to other teammates.

      Bradley chose not to play, the league is prohibiting House to play when him and the girl herself declined having any contact with each other…..

    Houston’s coach is upset when they don’t take 50+ threes a game. So why would we expect him to revert to mid-range when the Rockets system is threes. Like most of you have mentioned he’s not smart enough to make the adjustment. Lakers totally switched up the way they played in game 2 which led them to 2 straight wins. Houston could come out aggressive but they won’t shy away from their tactic, and that’s threes.

    Small ball works when it’s Steph and Klay putting anything around them and it’s a real series …. any other team it’s just a jv game and not a good one

    If we’re being honest, Dantoni should receive as much criticism as Coach Bud. No adjustments, ever.

I thought molly was annoying interrupting max and Stephen a but man Kendricks breathing got her beat!

    It’s so stupid that such great players don’t shoot mid range shots. Kawhi has won rings doing so. D’Antoni is not a championship coach.

    The Rockets tried to play small ball which is hard to do against AD and Lebron. Lebron was taller and bigger than any player in that line up of Westbrook, Harden, Gordon, Covington and Tucker. Then you throw a 6’11 AD in there. It gave the Rockets zero advantage and if anything, a disadvantage. D’Antoni’s style of coaching is stuck in the 90’s.
