We give up 65+ points in the first half because we decide to double down on good one-on-one matchups or employ perimeter traps...all the while leaving shooters wide open on the weak side.
Then, in the second half, we come out quick to every beat, playing nasty on-ball defense like we did in the Phoenix game - forcing them into a battle in the paint where we can control the game with our superior size and skills inside (speaking of which...Kaman's footwork the past few games on the offensive end?!).
More tomorrow, but I thought this was a really heartening win replete with gimpy heroes and palpable team chemistry. Yeah, I know it's a cliché, but tonight we seemed like a team that understood its anatomy...the way good teams know who they are.
