Watching the game last night vs Brasil didnt do much for me. Yea, USA won in a game that was close most of the time but never seemed in danger of losing
Then theres James Harden. Whether on a 3v1 fast break or in a half court offense, all this guy does is shoot. If there's an inch of space, hes taking the shot no matter who's wide open under the bucket.
Steph Curry is another that wasnt impressive. Forcing shots, driving hard when there was nowhere to go, playing espn ball. Also, the preoccupation with ally oops is sickening. Looked more like a pickup game. How many out-of-bounds plays were layups for Brasil?
Ok, KD pulled out and messed up plans. They said last night the offense was centered around Durrant and his leaving threw a monkey wrench into the offensive game plan. OK, you get a pass, I suppose. However, this looks more like a bunch of players using their athleticism to run over opponents. Maybe it will work but was just hoping Coach K had more going on.
