Early in the Bobcats game and they've gone 4-5 times to the post with Westbrook and Durant. Is this a way to cover the lack of a bigman with post game? Interesting.
Since when has it been NOT okay for a player to practice posting up and use it in a game?
They've run a whole play for Durant with off-ball screens for shooters after he took the ball. That's something more than a simple post-up.
They probably are trying different things since you can do just about anything against the Bobcats and win. But i've seen both guys post up a lot. The Cats don't have a PG that can match Russ's size and Durant can do whatever he wants, where wants so that shouldnt be surprise
Agreed. Whoa the Bobcats are really AWFUL. They've got outplayed by the Thunder bench in the 1st half.
This season the thunder have been posting up with Westbrook a whole lot. You can argue that they do a better job with it with Russell than Durante because Durante likes to turn around and face the player once he's in the post. Russell is really starting to find a home for the post up turnaround bank shot
