I would love to just put Garrett on him, but it will probably end up being a lot of switching. And double-teaming him on high ball screens.
I’d pick him up right at half court and play him REALLY physical from there. force him to do one of two things. Either drive or pass. But he is not going to beat me by shooting the three ball. If they try to shake him loose with a high ball screen, I would hedge extremely hard with Doke/Mitch/De Sousa and let my defender be able to go over the top of the screen to prevent an easy 3.
The one thing I’d really make sure I did is put in a play where we post him up. Either with Vick, Garrett or Svi. But I would love to see an isolation where we force him to defend in the paint. at 170 lbs, he is either going to get warn down or foul. Sometimes good offense can be your best defense.
Sounds good but you can take it to the bank he isn’t going to foul. - he will let you go first, won’t begin to contest especially in the 1st half. I don’t know if it is Kruger or him or a combo of both - but he is not risking getting in foul trouble to where he has to sit. I’ve seen him to many times just totally back away – wave an arm as you blow by him - and jog down the court on defense in the 1st half.
Could be coach tells him not to worry concentrate on the offensive end don’t know - -but he isn’t going t be in foul trouble - he just won’t allow that to happen. - -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY
