There were three possessions in a row last night where we looked legit.
Pick and role to Mav
Double down on Mav and a 3 by JCL.
Feed to Mav and hitting a cutter for an easy layup.
There are some signs of life out there and Mav is in the middle of it offensively. Never thought I would write that.
Well the key to this are two things: 1. A back-to-the-basket scorer who can easily knock down 15 footers as well. This helps a great deal with spacing because it is extremely hard to defend post players one-on-one therefore teams either collapse and help leaving the perimeter open or hope their guy wins a defensive battles. 2. you need guards willing to feed the post and a big willing to kick it back out. I think Mav has done this better in the limited action Thorne got this season. Also, I have liked Lewis' play in the B1G and I think he's done better than the stat line.
