Apricot's In-Game Notes
Looks like GSW playing Wiseman in drop, and feels like the right idea. He already bothered one pull-up jumper in drop
James Wiseman defending Anthony Davis respectably on a few plays, except for leaving him for open 3s. I’d think JW should run him off the line and trust the rotation, but the game plan could very well be to let AD shoot 3s
Heh heh There’s definitely a game plan, just a question of how complex… Besides the base defense (ICE, drop), you can see GSW is putting a shadow helper under the free throw line every time AD posts up. It’s not really working, but it’s clearly a plan.
Juanito has been as usual making all kinds of little winning plays Sigh
On Anthony Lamb: I’m getting tiny Anderson Varejao vibes
JW saying at halftime that he has to stay closer to AD, confirming that “let AD take open threes” was not the game plan
Looney ad suggests Kevon is launched by a little Windows 3.1 .exe file. Appropriate
JaMychal Green in Japan didn’t seem to be caught up on the GSW playbook. He’s been doing all the right little things tonight. Great passing out of the post, always setting the backscreen in early offense for Steph, and as I type this, he’s getting into the passing lanes
Felt like Steph got serious about that 3 after he dropped JTA. Nothing like scoring on your brother
Poole outside-in dribble into a round the back floater. It is nasty
