One possible move for Vogel is to stagger Hibbert’s minutes differently so he’s playing more against Elton Brand than Antic.
Space, space and more space. Korver backpicked for Antic on Hibbert as misdirection on that Teague drive. How many teams can do that?
George Hill’s D has been off for a while now. With the action happening baseline, you can’t let Teague go middle that easily.
Cartier Martin just stripped Paul George.
This guy approved of Hibbert’s corner three. http://t.co/8DfjzGtLr2
We’re just discovered how to unlock the Pacers’ offense: Roy Hibbert for the corner three.
Pacers’ on-court chemistry problems, part II http://t.co/d5CJEExsgb
Kyle Korver blocked Roy Hibbert. That’s it. That’s all I need to say.
Behind, but this sums up Indiana’s on-court chemistry issues well, yes? http://t.co/J4z6Rl3E3Q
And did it on purpose
3-1 pick and roll with CJ Watson screening for George is an interesting wrinkle.
How is Indiana-Atlanta on TNT and Toronto-Brooklyn on NBATV? Need to switch that.
When you can post Millsap, induce a double and space your center on the weakside angled 3, you’re able to find openings against Indiana.
This is not going to be an easy series for Indiana. You’re seeing how Atlanta’s shooting is a problem.
Too funny what Blake did to that GS fan
Not sure I’d have DeAndre in here, since it’s a need-a-3 situation with no TOs.
Darren Collison playing some great D, though Curry bailed him out a bit on that play.
Great show on that pick and roll by Blake Griffin.
Wow, Chris Paul.
And DeAndre’s back in, so OK. Still, strategy is the same: involve DeAndre in the play, make Blake be the rim protector with his five fouls.
DeAndre not on the floor late in a playoff game. This seems familiar.
This would be a rough loss for Golden State. Clippers have plenty of offense, totally possible. They should keep involving DeAndre in p&rs.
Snapchat me kslife13
No reason for Big Baby to double that Klay ISO.
Again, GSW uses the pick and roll as a vehicle to induce a trap, then moved the ball.
Like … what is DeAndre doing out there on that last play? Scheme calls for him to be aggressive, but not like that.
The Warriors “guarding” DeAndre Jordan. http://t.co/0SoIJESaqa
The Clippers’ D is so easy to beat. Deal with trap, short roll, quick pass, and the next rotation is never there.
This game keeps Charging forward.
If it’s going to take that long for the refs to call defensive 3 on Jermaine O’Neal, Warriors will be thrilled.
Warriors are paying zero attention to DeAndre Jordan offensively and involving him in their plays defensively.
Warriors are just accepting the traps and moving it. Good teams do this; bad teams don’t. That’s why LAC’s D has such a big discrepancy.
Hate that call.
Bad switch by Paul there, and then he leaves Klay Thompson wide open.
Eurostep that, Dre
Reminder that the Clippers stayed close the entire first half without Blake Griffin.
Weird first half. Don’t think you can take much from it.
Seriously though, LAC’s pick and roll shows have been sloppy against good teams all year. This is a big problem.
Clippers should be worried about how they’re defending these Curry drag screens. That’ll cost them eventually.
This game’s appropriately ragged. I’d say it favors GSW, but Griffin isn’t in.
Mark Jackson would put Jermaine O’Neal on CP3 before he’d put Curry on him.
So … Marreese Speights, huh? How about that.
Clippers should take San Antonio’s strategy and let these post-ups develop. Don’t send much help at all.
What exactly is DeAndre Jordan doing flying over there?
The Clippers’ bench cannot rebound, which is a problem. Lots of matchup confusion on rebounds and secondary breaks.
Jamal Crawford is now GUARDING Jordan Crawford this is weird.
Jamal Crawford and Jordan Crawford in the same series is weird.
Awwww Harrison :-(
Hopefully the hotel has Showtime! Fights come on tonight, if I remember correctly
Surprised LAC went to their tiny lineup this early, unless they are trying to bait Golden State into these post-ups & playing percentages
One good way to use Iguodala’s D would be to have him shadow Crawford. Curious if GSW does that.
If you have to say “Marreese Speight has got to be ready,” you’ve already lost.
Curry may need to go NOVA early. Nothing else’s working.
David Lee dealing with the Clippers’ many cross-screens will be a problem.
Jermaine O’Neal will pick up 5,000 defensive three second violations in this series.
Casey probably stuck with DeRozan too long, but tough to fault a coach for sticking with him. May be confidence ramifications if you sit him
Scary thing is this could have been way worse if Brooklyn hit a decent clip from three. DeRozan needs to get in the film room.
Amir Johnson’s injury hurts, because I think the play under normal circumstances is to put him in, take JV out and run Lowry/Amir p&r.
That KG backscreen on that Pierce three was brilliant.
DeRozan HAS to work harder to get open there. That’s not going to work in the playoffs.
Patrick Patterson is the ideal guy to stop Pierce.
Really curious to see who Toronto throws out there out of this timeout. That’s your crunch-time lineup.
Nets have missed so many good looks from three. This should be a blowout if they make a decent number of those.
Raptors have to get into these sets quicker.
Toronto’s crunch-time lineup will probably be Lowry, Greivis, DeRozan OR Ross, Patterson and Amir OR Jonas, right?
They should yell SHOFAR instead. http://t.co/4QS7tCNK2i
“Steve, what’s it like as an official dealing with a situation that never happens"
When do you abort on all these DeRozan sets?
There sure are a lot of people watching this Men’s League game.
“F*** SHOT CLOCKS” -Masai Ujiri.
Better NBA first-round playoff series feud: Drake vs. Jay-Z or Jay-Z vs. Soulja Boy?
Terrible shot by DeMar.
If DeRozan reads the traps and moves it, Toronto will thrive. That’s the big key.
DeRozan with no vision on that pick and roll. Valanciunas was open.
Great little set there by Toronto.
Will be interesting if/how Ujiri is punished (he shouldn’t be but whatever). Stern would have fined him a lot. Will Silver?
Will keep saying this: The league HAS to get Game 2 off NBATV somehow.
Salmons cannot get beat that easily.
The ball screens on Deron Williams’ defenders have been fantastic today.
Ross in with three fouls, DeRozan still sits, huh?
Interesting thing about this series: both benches are pretty deep. So both coaches have a lot of different cards to play.
KG should be immortalized on a statue in that “What, me?” pose with his arms straight up.
