I was thinking about the final shot in Game 5. The double team on Kawhi was very fast and very good. Fred was quickly checked. Kyle in the corner was challenged, successfully by the excellent defender, Draymond Green. The commentators thought he had time to fake Green up, pull it down and shoot freely. GS played it very well.
But Danny Green was wide open. Unfortunatley he has been shooting terribly (one game with 3s not withstanding). And Iguadala was in position to challenge that pass.
Why not go inside to Gasol, checked by Green, who also has his eye on Lowry in the corner? Post up to Gasol with inside position.
Not sure they if they would go to Danny Green, but if not, he should not be out there.
It is over and done, and in Game 6, the Raptors win the title.
But strategy and tactics can still be discussed. Certainly not complaining, especially, after the Raptors win Game 6 ... just looking at that play in Game 5.
And I would not title that clip "Kawhi did not make the right play." They did not seem to have a good play dialed up for that situation. It looked like Kawhi was on his own to make something happen.
We the North.
Just imo ...
