I hope there’s an archive available, because I’d like to go back and look now. In real time, I didn’t have the same reaction to KR’s defense. It feels like Lidner took a number of contested jumpers – which I think is what we’d want. His penetration is the killer; I’d take my chances with his jumper, I think.
I’d also like to watch that last play again. I feel like KR got a decent look, and AP’s was even better. The dice just didn’t come up our way.
I do like JG on the pick and roll, though. It’s often led to that little baby lob from KR, which is usually pretty effective. I only remember one recent instance where it didn’t work, with a mis-handle of the catch. JG can go up and get that lob.
