Blazers thriving in generally tough shooting situations, and it’s no fluke


The Golden State Warriors have ruined everything. Or I should say that has ruined everything.

In trying to figure out what sustainable offense looks like, what is a new trend of action, and what is just a fluky stretch of shooting excellence, the Warriors and Curry have skewed things when it comes to the perimeter attack. Curry and his incomparable ability to take long jumpers off the dribble have flooded the highlight reels that once housed nothing but big dunks on top of ill-prepared big men. It’s only natural to see this start permeating into other team’s identities.

The came into the season with low expectations — at least outside of their own locker room — after losing 80 percent of their starting lineup and 66.7 percent of their roster. Perhaps the low expectations hoisted upon them have caused their opponents to not take them as seriously as is clearly necessary, but it’s more likely the Blazers have used it motivation to come out in search of dropping a ton of points on the opposition in front of them.

Or, perhaps we were all just wrong. Perhaps good shooting makes for good teams. 

Go figure. 

Through the first two weeks of the regular season, the Blazers have had some impressive offensive performances. They rank seventh in offensive rating (104.1), third in effective field goal percentage (52.8 percent), and second in 3-pointers made per game (10.4). We knew Damian Lillard could shoot and deep down we all knew C.J. McCollum could do the same (though we’d be lying if we said we saw this hot a start coming from McCollum), but still, this level of overall shooting, and winning, from the Blazers was not something anyone was expecting. And whenever something unexpected comes about, the first thing to do is question whether it’s sustainable over the long haul.

Where the Blazers seem to blow you away is with the ability to make shots off the dribble, which is propagated by Lillard and McCollum. With Lillard, it’s his sheer strength as he bounces defenders off him before rising up with perfect form. For McCollum, there’s a silkiness to the way he dissects the defenders in front of him while he glides to the open spot on the floor to fire off his shot.

Lillard is second in the in points off pull-up jumpers (9.1 per game). McCollum ranks fourth (8.8) while shooting an impressive 44.3 percent on those attempts. Their growth as initiators looking to score as a tandem has replacel Pellegrini says they haven’t changed their style after victory at Watford.Having picked up a first win of the season, after a heavy home defeat to Manchester City and a draw with Brighton & Hove Albion, Pellegrini believes his preferred style od the once vaunted ball movement-heavy system of Terry Stotts. Instead, the Blazers have gone from a team cutting through and swinging the ball with reckless abandon to the team looking to break you down with dribble penetration. Their passes per game are down six percent while potential assists are down 10 percent from last season.

Now, in theory, the idea of shooting more off the dribth boss Eddie Howe hopes for late transfer business this week.Bournemouth are preparing for their fifth season in the Premier League and have signed four players in this transfer window – Lloyd Kelly, Jack Stacey, Philip Billing and Arnaut Danjuma.Hoble and passing less doesn’t seem conducive to consistency. It makes it easy to doubt what Portland’s offense has been doing because it’s a rare skillset to produce at such a high level. The problem opponents face should correct itself.

Portland Trail Blazers’ 2014-15 and 2015-16 Shooting SplitsType of shot14-15 Freq14-15 eFG14-15 Rank15-16 Freq15-16 eFG15-16 rankOff the dribble 20.6% 41.4% 8th 26.9% 48.7% 3rdPull-up 28.0% 42.9% 4th 30.9% 49.3% 2ndCatch-and-shoot 33.9% 51.1% 12th 28.2% 54.5% 4th

The frequency of shots off the dribble and pull-up jumpers (these are only recorded outside of 10 feet) has increased significantly with an even bigger increase in accuracy. The Blazers were already a very good shooting team last season, but beiFootball Federation of Australia (FFA) has confirmed the appointment of James Johnson as its new chief executive, reports, /.Johnson was most recently senior vice president of external affairs with City Football Group (CFG) and will take up his new position in January able to not only maintain that accuracy but also improve upon it with such a new core has been remarkable. With those increases in shots off the dribble and pull-up jumpers, the catch-and-shoot frequency has decreased even though they’re more accurate than last season.

Stotts and his team are playing to the strengths of their newfound youth and athleticism by letting them attack more off the dribble. Because Stotts’ system is often so good with spacing, it doesn’t matter if they’re using that spacing to create for themselves or move the ball for others. Either way, it’s keeping the opponent from being able to crowd the shooting spots with multiple defenders and increased pressure.

It’s why we’ve seen a 2.7-point per game and 4.2 field goal percentage increase in Lillard’s scoring off the dribble. It’s why McCollum’s been able to go from being a nice surprise at the end of last season to a 20-point per game scorer and one of the best players in the NBA off the bounce. Even someone like has gone from being a complete non-factor a year ago to a player who is thriving with opportunity and the space to do work on offense.

All of this leads you to believe that not only is Portland’s shooting sustainable — it may even get better.

You’ll notice that the Blazers look impressive nearly everywhere on the floor except for the corner 3-point shots. Without having guys like and camped in the corners, it’s been a tougher transition for connecting on what are generally the most efficient 3-point shots you can take. Even if their above-the-break percentage goes down (they’re one of only four teams at 40 percent or greater), the baseline for their corner 3-point accuracy should increase to at least 32 percent, as only eight teams in the last 15 years have been under 32 percent from the corners, and six of those teams happened from 2001-03.

Listen, the Blazers are going to keep shooting. The question is whether they can ultimately get enough stops on the defensive end to make it ultimately matter. Portland is currently 11th in defensive rating, which isn’t terrible at all. They do a poor job of forcing turnovers (28th) and opponents live at the free throw line (28th) against them.

Portland’s team won’t be confused with the Warriors on the defensive side of the ball any time soon, if ever. But the shooting and the offense might be able to exist on at least a similar plane.

Scott: Metta World Peace and Kobe Bryant are Lakers’ best defenders


Byron Scott wasn’t really expected to win many games this year. Just improvement — in performance or record — from the  would be enough, as long as there was a decent amount of development going on with the youngsters. Those were the goals management talked about, though Jimmy Buss did say he envisioned the team as a playoff squad, for some reason. 

Instead, , the Lakers have been finishing games without as he sits on a tight leash, and the other young guys have been threatened with having their minutes yanked if they don’t improve defensively. The team is 18th in offense, 29th in defense, and 26th overall in net points per possession. The other major goal for this season was to manage ‘s minutes and games. There was a lot of talk that Bryant was completely on board with the plan, and then later revealed that Lakers coaching and management hadn’t actually sat down and had “the talk” with Bryant. 

To Scott’s credit, Bryant has been kept to under 30 minutes per game. However, he was also supposed to be held out of back to backs. How’s that plan going?

Byron Scott said yesterday that he would talk to Kobe today about back-to-backs, but said it didn’t happen this morning

— Ethan J. Skolnick (@EthanJSkolnick)

Lakers’ plan: Kobe will play tonight vs. Miami and tomorrow vs. ORL. His appearance in future back-to-backs will be based on how it goes.

— Mike Bresnahan (@Mike_Bresnahan)

And then less then five hours later: 

Kobe Bryant will not play tonight in Miami. Team has decided he will rest.

— Mike Trudell (@LakersReporter)

So I suppose they talked to him and maybe he’s on board with it? Seems confusing, but it’s possible.

So that seems like everything’s fine and dandy. Meanwhile, here’s what Scott said about his team’s woeful 29th-ranked defense:

ByThe 19-year-old has attracted a wide range of interest after scoring 22 goals in just 15 matches for Red Bull Salzburg this season.The Guardian says the Gunners have sent scouts to watch the two-cap Norway international in action.But Unai Emery’s sidron Scott: “Our problem is our two oldest guys guard guys the best.” Talking about MWP & Kobe

— Ethan J. Skolnick (@EthanJSkolnick)

For reference, World Peace does have an excellent 86.7 defensive rating, in the two games and 33 minutes he’s played. Bryant, on the other hand, has a 112.3 defensive rating, which is fifth worst on the team, just behind and the three youngsters. The bigger issue is that, via Synergy Sports, the team is getting torched in pick and roll coverage, and in transition, two areas where Bryhe tactical battle is what motivates him every day.Speaking with Ara, Guardiola was asked how he maintains his motivation.He said, “The fear of losing. And the same competition. And tactics. The reason I am a coach is the tactics. It’s a game. What cant struggles.

To Bryant’s credit, opponents are shooting 0.5 percent worse against him when . The help defense mechanics, thouransfer for Chelsea star Pedro during next summer’s window.Pedro has featured eight times in all competitions for Chelsea this season, but only three of those have come in the Premier League with Frank Lampard opting for a young and exciting startinggh, seem to be underwhelming at best. 

If you want a good indication of how accurate that statement is, ‘s defensive rating remains a stellar 101.4 when Bryant does not share the floor with him. When the two are on the court together, it’s over 10 points worse per 100 possessions. That’s not good.

Maybe Scott’s able to identify subtle things that mean that Bryant is doing things other people don’t see and that the data can’t quantify. The overall messages, though, seem fraught with confusing evidence, across the board, no matter where you look. 


Civilian review board: Police had no right to arrest Thabo Sefolosha


According to New York City’ser and agent of Paulo Dybala has sent a message to Juventus coach Maurizio Sarri.For Saturday’s 0-0 draw at Fiorentina, Dybala was not only left out of the starting line-up, but didn’t even come off the bench.

But the panel cleared the officers of accusations that they had been unduly brutal while subduing Mr. Sefolosha, according to a disposition letter summarizing the board’s findings.

“We are pleased that C.C.R.B. found his arrest to be completely unlawful,” Mr. Sefolosha’s lawyer, Alex Spiro, said, adding that the N.B.A. player had filed papers signaling that he intended to sue the city.

In simple terms: the review board found that Sefolosha shouldn’t have been arrested, but the broken leg he suffered wasn’t due to excessive force from poilice.
