How did this play go down? We present to you a quote from each of the coaches, then we will let you draw your own conclusions.
“I have drawn up a play like that before for Brad Miller,” Minnesota coach Rick Adelman said, referring to his days as coach of the Sacramento Kings. “It was the same kind of shot because usually big guys won’t get out there and Kevin has great range, as you saw. With a second and a half to go we thought that was our best opportunity for a wide-open look.”
“It looked like it was a double screen. We got squeezed — we didn’t fight through it, then he popped up and Kevin can shoot shoot those shots,” Clippers coach Vinny Del Negro said. “We didn’t go over it, we just didn’t do the coverage like we were supposed to.”
