Restore the Roar
That's what I was getting at, though. Some guys - like a Pop - would have changed things. Scrapped the plan. "My guys clearly can't shoot well enough for long open looks to work, we've gotta flip the script and hit'em someplace else." Bud's guys were getting open looks, but they weren't the same guys, in their same rhythms, and the shots didn't fall.Atlanta still had more open shots by far than anyone in the playoffs. The popular narrative was that the slower pace of the playoffs would suffocate Atlanta and that wasn't the case. It was just a combination of injuries and bad luck with shots not falling.
