canada goose coats Post Game Thread The New Orleans Pelicans defeat the Portland Trailblazers 131
canada goose Gentry destroyed Stotts and this needs to be talked about more.Gentry designed the Pelican defense to trap ball screens, which Canada Goose Outlet severely hindered Lillard and McCollum. The high ball trap forced the Portland guards to pass out and made someone else beat the Pelicans. The Pelicans did a great job switching back and when the switching was slow, AD was able to fill the cracks of the defense as an elite rim protector. When the they chose not to attack the rim with Canada Goose sale AD roaming, canada goose black friday sale the Pelican chose where the ball ended up by giving Aminu 3 pointers, which he actually hit at a decent clip in game 4 but not for the series.It was an amazing defensive game plan that Stotts was never able to get his team to adjust to. Scotts could have added multiple outlets from the trap and played more guards but he was never able to get his players to execute an efficient response. Instead, Portland generated offense through other means like off ball screens, through the post, and buy canada goose jacket Iso. While these were canada goose able to keep their offense from becoming anemic (McCollum even drove a good offensive performance in Game 4), Gentry’s defensive scheme never let Portland explode offensively as a team and especially Lillard.In particular, McCollum was able to recover more in the series since he isn’t as reliant on high ball screens Canada Goose Parka and wasn guarded by Holiday canada goose factory sale as much, but Lillard, as uk canada goose the primary ball handler, canada goose uk black friday was not able to recover as easily. He doesn’t use off ball screens as much as McCollum, and gets much of his offense through ball canada goose uk outlet screens and Iso. The trap defense took away the ball screen offense, and Holiday limited Lillard’s Iso offense when matched up. Speaking of Pelican uk canada goose outlet players, we should give credit to the them (Mostly Holiday and AD) for there execution of the defensive scheme, but the scheme was designed perfectly for the Portland offense, which heavily relies on their two guards to initiate and perfectly for defensive skill set of the Pelicans.I don’t want to make this any longer so I’m gonna canada goose clearance let other people tackle Pelicans offense vs Trailblazers defense.You saw Oladipo adjust by doing that and going straight to an ISO against his defender last night. The previous game, he had two plays that Zach Lowe got really excited talking about, where he was trapped, so backed off a little, the trapper thus starting retreating to get back to his man and right then and there Oladipo drove right then and there.Wade canada goose coats waved off a James Johnson screen near the end of cheap canada goose uk the game because that would meant Simmons was guarding him, instead of Reddick.Of canada goose clearance sale course, none of the primary defenders in those cases were as good as Jrue is. But let take out the situations where the ball handler handled the trap by himself.(Harala)bob Voulgaris talked a lot about possibly getting Rondo man screening for Lillard. They should never have had any plays where Davis man was the one screening for Lillard.Having release valves that could get the ball and canadian goose jacket then having Lillard use off ball screens, hand offs, cuts, etc.Hell, if Holiday isn guarding CJ, then give CJ the ball and let him run the high pick n roll with Lillard as the release, or have CJ handle the play one on one.The point of a screen is to create separation. If every screen cheap Canada Goose you setting near your ball handler is killing that, don set them!Also you would Canada Goose Online expect a team as young as the Blazers to have a number of let down losses. For sure they did early in the buy canada goose jacket cheap season, but they finished the year so strong, taking care of business night after night. I think Canada Goose Coats On Sale that is a great indication for the future. They clearly have good chemistry and they seem to respond well to Stotts. People in the RipCity sub are saying there need to big changes. I disagree. The core is young and should continue to improve. The biggest problems are the contracts of Turner and Leonard which are just atrocious. I also not sure if CJ and Dame are a good Canada Goose online combo. They are both excellent players but their games just seem canada goose store to overlap a bit too much. But I don think that concern justifies blowing it up just yet.Baron Davis era teams were stopped by injuries to Davis and Mashburn.Chris Paul era teams were stopped by injuries to everybody and their mama (including Paul).Anthony Davis era teams were stopped by injuries to Tyreke, Gordon, Ryno, Asik, Jrue, AD, and every single fucking role player you can possibly imagine.Shit this might be our best team ever and they missing a fucking superstar to an canada goose black friday Achilles tear.People canada goose uk shop don joke canada goose coats on sale when they say this team is cursed. It fucking hard to win when you have never had a healthy season in franchise history. Seriously, this is the closest to a https://www.canadagooseoutletstore.co.uk healthy team we ever had, and we missed our starting SF for the entire season, our superstar center for half the season, and our starting point guard for the first month of the year.It absolutely insane, and we still got a FUCKING SWEEP BABY!!!!I not gay but I want to live in a log cabin in the woods with Anthony Davis. We won ever have sex, but there will be a simmering erotic undercurrent as I stand in the kitchen window watching him tighten his ass as he chops wood, shirtless, sweat pouring off his body. I run upstairs and masturbate, the entire time forcing myself to think of women while my thoughts drift back to Anthony. I won be able to climax and I eventually go back downstairs, angry. Sometimes we will look across the table and catch each other eyes, and in that second, anything is possible, but we both deny ourselves and go back to what we were Canada Goose Jackets doing. One day one of us will die, and the other will bury him outside the log cabin. Then he go inside, pen a brief missive to his departed friend, and commit suicide, never able to deal with life without his one true platonic love.
