@neo12 @Old Man Game @calebli we could've fixed it by playing some defense. we thrive on turnovers leading to fastbreak.

@OohWeeItsVelvetHoop @calebli If Ibaka is out, if you played Durant, Adams, Collison, Perry Jones, Westbrook...


i would love to see them try to score from 3 and at the rim. that'd be too much size and speed...

@Lost Ones i've rewatched the Heat series. you'd be shocked but Russell Westbrook played awesome defense on LeBron. doesn't allow LeBron to post up.

@MJOKC Look as bad as Sefolosha is, it gets compounded by playing with Perkins. but he does have the closeout footspeed to help on defense and run to the 3 point line.


the sefolosha vs. butler debate: can't play sefolosha with perkins, that's about it.

@Di_charden @calebli to tell you the truth, he sat PJ III and Jeremy Lamb for huge stretches of the regular season, it's hard even for me to justify to play them. but i think he should.

@Lost Ones @calebli Caron Butler gets hot from 3, he might be a positive maybe... but dude he is 34 year old journey man, and he plays 25 mpg for us.

@Aren't @calebli you do realize that KD, Butler, Fisher never stick to their man at the 3 point line because Perkins can't guard the rim? They tried to give half effort in doubling.

For all these idiots that don't want to blame scott brooks: we play two of the worst players in the 2014 NBA playoffs over 20 MPG. Butler and Perkins are the worst in Value-Added and in EWA.

The Fix? Play players that are actually a positive to the team. Look at the TEAM PER. It's all here.  Look at the winshares. I rest my case.


This is purely a lineup issue.

1 year, 6 months ago on What should the Thunder do with the 12th pick?

Reply

If Brooks were coaching the Heat, Joel Anthony would be the starting center. Anthony, a 6’9 245 defensive specialist, was a mainstay in the Miami rotation for four seasons. An undrafted free agent who clawed his way into the NBA, he is an excellent shot-blocker whose work ethic earned the respect of everyone in the Heat organization. However, his anemic offensive game was exposed in the 2011 playoffs, where he had a 7.9 PER. Spoelstra has steadily eased him out of the rotation ever since. Anthony has played only 17 minutes this postseason, going from a starter to end of the bench player in two years.

Anthony, like many defensive-oriented centers who can’t score, is less valuable in a more perimeter-oriented NBA. Spoelstra recognized this, moving to a smaller line-up with Chris Bosh at center. Brooks, in contrast, has faithfully stuck with Kendrick Perkins for years, despite ever diminishing returns. The 2012 NBA Finals, when Perkins couldn’t defend the smaller Heat players on the perimeter or punish them on offense, should have been a wake-up call. Instead, Perkins rewarded Brooks’ faith with a -0.7 PER in this year’s playoffs, the lowest mark in NBA history.

Royce, missed out on Perkins excerpt. this is great!

3. The play call for Perk
Kendrick Perkins catches quite a bit of heat for his many flaws, but it’s often unfair that he’s the one receiving criticism for it. The Thunder’s penultimate possession was a prime example of why Brooks, not Perkins, is largely responsible for the center being a detriment to his team at times.

Down five and badly needing a bucket, Brooks drew up a play that had Perkins not just handling the basketball, but being forced to pass, and make a decision on the move. It was a microcosm of the entire Brooks-Perkins relationship — the head coach putting his big man in a spot that more often than not leads to failure.

Perhaps the most stunning part wasn’t even what Perkins was asked to do on that particular play, but that he was even in the game. Brooks pulled out a superior offensive player, Reggie Jackson, just to get his limited big man on the floor. A head-scratching decision all around.

@Diallo309 @calebli dude i hear you man. but if we are aiming to win it all this year, we are going to have to play Kevin Durant a crazy amount.

Just like Jimmy Butler.

With Russell Westbrook, we don't miss a beat if KD is on the bench. We clearly notice when KD is off the court. The Net +6 is extremely meaningful. The guy was out for what 4 minutes?

@Diallo309 @calebli I understand that. but we had a lineup of Fisher, Reggie Jackson, Martin, Thabeet, Collison.

Liabilities on both offense and defense.

If we want any hope of winning a championship, we need Durant to play 46-48 minutes. We can agree that the whole team takes a HUGE step back if KD is out. Unless Reggie Jackson or Kevin Martin can initiate offense.

one more thing to note Thunder Fans. Jimmy Butler has played 48 minutes for 3 straight games now.

Kevin Durant was NET +6. We can't sit him. We lost the game because we sat him. I firmly believe it.
