Late in last night’s game Lebron James was isolated just left of the circle (where #3 is in the chart), made a one on one dribble move on Wilson Chandler and buried a 20-foot jumper that put the Cavs up 7 with 33 seconds to go.
I mention this because if James can master the attacking of the open block, or quick trigger pull up that you can always get of DDM, the Cavs are going to be impossible to stop come playoff time. There is simply no way guard it.
If you send a man to double, James will find a man wide open and he’s simply too strong when attacking the block.
