Maybe you remember my post dedicated to the poor strategy Ty employed in the game at bucks last week ?
If you don’t want to navigate between pages, here is an extract:
< Take any coach in Europe officiating from U15W up to euroleague and ask him:
“what would you ask your team to do when you are up by 3 and your opponent has the ball in his hands with less than 24 second to play?”
100% will answer:
“YOU FOUL to put them to the line, shoot 2 FT under pressure, then you secure the rebound”
… but there is no way coaches like Ty (and many in the NBA to tell you the truth) would even think about it. They would rather be in Jennings’ buzzer beater poster than giving their team their best chance to win. >
Well … I was wrong, I mean this is not a plague in the NBA. Some coaches are better than I was suspecting. Because it just occured twice last night:
- Bucks at Kings. Bucks up by 3 with around 3 seconds remaining, ball in Jimmer’s hands. Jenning fouls him. After hitting the first free throw, Jimmer misses the second one intentionnaly. Rebound Bucks. Bucks win by 2. Thanks coach Boylan.
- Cavs at Raptors. Raptors up by 3 with 4.7 seconds to play. Foul by a raptor’s player to put Waiters (if I remember well) at the line. Hits the first and misses the second. Rebound. Foul. Raptors win by 4. Thanks coach Casey.
C’mon, Ty …
