Commented on NBA Playoffs 2014: Can Randy Wittman pull off the upset? on Apr 18 2014, 9:52p - 1 reply
The moving screens that don't get called are moving AWAY from the basket to push the trailing defender a bit further off his line

That's why all bigs hold the screen like Nene in this example

No. There's a reason why NBA bigs either hold the screen or slip it entirely.

Yup, their perimeter defenders stay home. That's why they're #2 in the league at preventing corner threes as mentioned in the OP.

Nope. Nene holds stationary until contact.

Didn't Nene (and not Wall) create a lot of those shots?

Would it help to put Ariza on Hinrich to apply some light full court pressure and make it hard to get the ball in to Noah?

He'll get into the paint. He will have trouble getting to the rim.

Yeah, I'm not expecting Gortat to outrun Noah. Booker vs Boozer on the other hand.

BTW, for context, league average on 3PAs is around 22 per game, so they held us to half of that.
