I don’t think that’s what happened. Paul had the assignment and Bane set a pick and instead of switching Mikal and Paul both stepped towards Bane and gave Morant a head start. EJ kept harping on this during the break.JeremyG wrote: ↑Mon Dec 27, 2021 9:37 pmChris Paul came to double on that last play and just ran past Morant. Terrible mistake from Paul for the second straight game in crunch time.Split T wrote: ↑Mon Dec 27, 2021 9:33 pmIt does seem like Ja lands before he shoots sometimes…that last play was just bad defense. How do you let him get all the way to the rim? I know he’s fast, but make him shoot a jumper, even if it’s mostly an open shot…or just straight up double him. Make Anderson make a play.
That last play design for Mikal, I get that it’s not expected so there’s the element of surprise but he takes a while to wind up his shot so that was not great coaching.
