When the game's on the line, the offense can fall into isolation 'hero ball'
Let's talk about the end of the game here with the Celtics ran a play that the coach called and you've been on the floor move and you've played with Paul you've played E'Twaun we love. But it's one love those threes in the manner he did and end but. So tight they actually ran the play and it worked so Walter explain to me -- for the majority of the game. Teams will run place for when they need a bucket to win a game they go to one on one hero ball why was part -- -- NBA. You have guys who. That's Augusta their paychecks you know the mark -- Jordan's mom to all those guys that they won't take the -- -- run in the brunt of it but is it the best way to win. If you levels dozens this. Reasonably Reynolds does that to make the big play when it counts in this levels does -- you believe you that you won't you vocal required to have the ball in his hands. You know I want to all of. We've got to have the ball but let's let's be honest on the final play that they drove for Jeff Green and worked perfectly what we all -- This is going to be appearance right elbow fall away jumper went from nineteen right with a second left it's going to be a prayer. One of ten chance to go and the things going over time we get to get actually. Do something like this it's almost always -- the right now all of us gave us. This this this player worked for one reason that people not think about it not put it he goes beyond players in the best position. It was is not used to guarding the ball for the guy out there coma for too many games Luis Bismarck it -- that -- didn't view this was the play is just wandered back to it. And luckily green lit up when I played the ball is actually better -- haven't brutal we got what. They did it used to just love with the place so it worked out who Wilfork. OK I need -- -- a -- to the spot a little bit. The percentage of plays. Pick coaches called for the players actually broaden that because I've been there I've heard coaches called a play. The players go well and it's not even been close low doesn't. And -- yup I forgot. So what you think. -- -- -- Courses this is what we -- -- but so many things happen you don't both of them -- play ability had to play. For the record that was whistled gods are really really indeed was what happened so. You know that is taking advantage of that knowledge of how to -- to play. So I thought I. Fell 1% of the time at the go to -- translate but 10% 15%. Problem sources the pills you know we have a go like Paul here's -- Paul thinks he can beat his man was he usually did -- go to the left -- he's like you did this play right in on. This guy he just out -- in. You just not well to do so as coaches -- that this is part of the NBA. As part of and that's what the paper on that money.
