Yes, it's taken 24 hours to get over the shock of watching Anthony Johnson outplay Deron Williams. Or, technical difficulties. Which is more plausible? I ask you.
I have a couple of requests with regard to the Hawks' offense from here on out:
- Throw it to Al Horford in the post or throw it Josh Smith in the (low- or high-) post. Let the shooters (Joe Johnson or Marvin Williams, ideally) get open looks from the resulting double-team.
- Run the pick-and-roll with Joe Johnson, especially if his defender is going under the screen consistently.
- Stop posting up Joe Johnson so that the opposing team can leave Anthony Johnson and Josh Smith free to take long jump shots as the shot clock expires.
