After playing 4 on 5 offense for a couple of months now, Ty should be able to figure out that Jamaal and Earl CAN’T SCORE!!!
Nobody bothers to even guard them. They put up a shot and might just as well throw the ball out of bounds, so at least the other team has to inbound the ball, instead of having a fast break.
There’s a simple solution.
Put Jamaal and Earl on the bench where they can’t do any damage. When they are in the game their defender doubles whoever has the ball, because they can’t shoot and everyone knows it.
Added to that is their defense. Jamaal is just terrible.
On top of that, they get very few rebounds.
This is not a new thing. This has been going on all year. When Mo was healthy, it was masked somewhat, but the last 2 months have been glaring.
Once you’ve benched Jamaal and Earl, Ty needs to run a 3 guard rotation, until Mo gets back. Gordon, Alec and Randy rotate the 2 guard positions throughout the game. No Earl. No Jamaal.
Rebounding, defense and scoring all suddenly improve. How can it not?
As a side note, why can’t Kanter and the Junkyard Dog get more minutes???
Come on Ty…Do some coaching and make some changes. Get out of your rut!
