In the middle of a playoff series, he made an adjustment to play Draymond Green on Griffin and go small. In what world or alternate reality, would "etched in stone rotations" Monty, allow himself to make such a crucial move to breath life back into the series? Truth be told, I actually see them as fairly similar. Give me the guy that knows the view of the game from the perimeter over the guy that views the game from the trenches any day of the week in the modern day NBA.
That defines it all. Knowing rotations and setting the tone of the game is how you rip a win away when you shouldn't. They played a VERY hard 7 game series and came short against a very good LAC team without their starting center.
