re: #1 problem with this team IMO - corndeaux
What's funny about Ball and Ingram is that their performances from 3 may just be one offs. They could be career highs they never reach again. Sample size is real and these things need to be looked at from all sorts of perspectives. Game to game is always going to be high variance. Hell, even the...

[quote]I said we do a great job finding the right players, in the right spots,[b] on the right nights, using a now complementary rotation[/b], which clearly we do, and you concede[/quote] ??? My last post literally questioned the bolded parts and asked you to show how the Pels clearly do that. ...

[quote]You start off claiming the team shot poorly to start the season[/quote] I said we all thought they would struggle shooting at the start of the year. That was the biggest presumed weakness heading into the season. They haven't. We were all wrong. Is that because of the system? Likely. Becau...

I'm flattered that you are copying my posting style. You still haven't really shown how the Pels are streaky as individuals, but not as a team....

[quote] There is a reason Jrue has only taken more than 6 threes when he isn’t shooting well like once or twice this season, all other times it is because he is hitting.[/quote] He has 15 games with more than 6 3s. Depending on where you draw the line on hitting them, 5 of those were poor perform...

Take this even further for the "Get the ball to Zion" crowd. He's shooting 67.5% in the RA according to Basketball-Reference. A 3pt shooter has to hit threes at 45% to match that efficiency. There are a handful of guys in the league that can do that well from 3. JJ is one of them. Otherwise, ...

[quote]This whole thread is focused on the wrong thing IMO. It's the right problem but the wrong solution. The Miami game last night really illustrated it. Good defensive teams can both pack the paint and challenge spot up 3 point shooters. So you need another option when that happens.[/quote] It...

Confirmation bias is a hell of a drug. People tend to dig in on what they think, but you take it to another level. There is no such thing as the hot hand. [link=(https://www.samford.edu/sports-analytics/fans/2017/The-Hot-Hand-Myth-or-Reality)]LINK[/link] The Pels offense works because they loo...

[quote]tend to agree with the sentiment from an observational standpoint[/quote] I'm all for seeing any evidence to support what they're saying. My guess on all of this is a sample size + negativity bias problem. We watch and live within each game. We tend to remember the negatives more th...

I'll be excited when your word of the day is logic. Bronc: Pels have streaky individual shooters Me: They are one of the best 3pt shooting teams in the league by any measure over 63 games Bronc: The players are streaky, but the team is not Me: ??? Bronc: Synergy I'd love to see an...

They are 3rd in 3PT% on the season at 37.3%. They make 14 3s a night on the season, also good for 3rd. They have 5 guys with > 100 3PM on the season, more than any other team at this point (and that doesn't include Melli or Moore). We are 62 games in. They are not streaky. They are a good 3pt sho...

[quote]I’d also like to point out that ball movement and AST% doesn’t necessarily equal success in the clutch.[/quote] Agree 100%. You can be an extraordinary offense and not pass the ball much or have much player movement- the Rockets of the last few years are an example. [quote] I don’t thin...

[quote]Zion finds his second wind and we need to feed him as a go to gu[/quote] Zion ain't ready for that. I'm all for letting him get reps, but he will likely not find much more success than what we're seeing. He struggles putting the ball on the floor and not turning it over. He can pass out of...

re: Pelicans in the Clutch: by the numbers (long) - corndeaux
Great, interesting post. There are definitely some things going on in NO. I think there are legit questions about what the Pels are doing and how they can keep their offensive tempo going when things get tight. I don't think Gentry is changing the offense down the stretch to be ISO heavy, but th...

[quote]Seeing that convinced me that players matter much more than coaches. Part of what makes Pop so good is that he works so closely with Buford.[/quote] Ding ding ding. Those stats I listed come after both Favors and Zion returned to play for a reason. It's not rocket science that the team...
