Keys, Concepts & Observations vs. Sacramento 3/30

March 30, 2016
Keys, Concepts & Observations vs. Sacramento:

Contain Rondo & Cousins inside and out
  • Rondo leads the NBA in assists per game (11.7)
  • Cousins is 4th in points per game (27) and 5th in rebounds per game (11.6)

Defend the passing lanes & pack it in on drives
  • Kings average the 3rd most points per game (106.7)
  • Kings score the 2nd most paint points per game

Control the pace with focus on transition D
  • Kings lead NBA in transition points - get back on missed shots

Utilize two man game with Wall & Gortat
  • Work high pick and rolls to pull Cousins & Koufos away from the rim

Board play
  • Bodies on Cousins & Cauley-Stein down low to prevent 2nd chance opportunities
