This team refuses to play defense now.The last time this happened they had to bring in Dominic McGuire to shame guys into playing hard again.
Team has always been poor on defense this season. Last night was terrible. But the defense has been terrible all year. The difference was the offense took a plane to New Orleans instead of Minnesota.
They are young and defense is more about preparation and experience at this level. Poring over scouting reports, knowing where help will be, not ball watching, etc. One mistake and the possesion is over.
They are bad, but such a young team was always going to be bad at those things. Kevin Durant is just now becoming a dominant defensive player. It takes time.
Matt Moore has a great article with Iguodala this week talking defense.
