Jrue Holiday Being Allowed To Make Plays

One of my frustrations all year watching the 76ers is how Jrue Holiday doesn’t look to attack the basket enough. Mostly, I blame coach Doug Collins’ conservative offense for neutering Holiday’s aggression. Before Game 6, though, Collins said Holiday needed to shoot more, and that’s just what Holiday needed to hear.

So far, Holiday has been attacking the basket, taking advantage of his new freedom. He took just six shots in Game 5; he already taken five layups in Game 6. He struggled to finish often during the season, but he’s converting his shots at the rim in this game.

This has always been an element of Holiday’s game, but he hasn’t had a chance to show it. With his team’s season on the line, it’s about time Collins let him go.
