Yep. That did happen. Ace had a bad shooting night. He had some steals and assists. His assists would have been close to 10 if guys could shoot.
yup - another point I would make is MR needs to rethink his pick n roll combos -
in the majority of situations the picker is not someone that creates fear in the opponents (JJ , Fermin or Tobi , specifically) (think of the guys in prior years Ward, Douglass etc that had no real business in pick n rolls IMHO)
think about the Nuggets pick n roll with Murray and Jokic - that creates real FEAR because both can score at all levels
NBA teams also create better angles for the pick n roll to make the pass to the cutter by spreading the floor with actual shooters that can hit the open 3 or move the ball like it is HOT (Yeah I cringed when I wrote that)
right now I would solely run the pick n roll with Brandon Johns, (good footwork and ability to finish at rim or get fouled - nice looking jumper but question whether he should have green light with 3, based upon results for first 9 games
I would love to see some analytics on VCU pick n roll success vs other teams success (like points per Pick n roll etc) (maybe I am cray cray with this thought)
