Comment on The Hawks’ defensive scheme has some problems by Eric Yeboah http://hawkshoop.com/the-hawks-defensive-scheme-has-problems/#comment-98924 Tue, 14 Mar 2017 17:46:38 +0000 http://hawkshoop.com/?p=10737#comment-98924 Really appreciate your take on this and breakdown! i completely agree with your take on dwight and what he needs to do to make a bigger impact. I think another issue is loading up on one side far too much allowing teams to use the skip pass over the top of a hawks defense that does not have enough length to cover ground quickly.

Thabo said after the raptors game last week that they are focusing more on the 3 point defense in film sessions and making adjustments.

Comment on The Hawks’ defensive scheme has some problems by northcyde http://hawkshoop.com/the-hawks-defensive-scheme-has-problems/#comment-98913 Mon, 13 Mar 2017 09:01:23 +0000 http://hawkshoop.com/?p=10737#comment-98913 This is a good article, but it doesn’t show why guys are wide open for 3s. What it shows, is that the sagging bigs will give up midrange jumpers. Honestly, I’d rather give up an open 18 footer, than an open 3 pointer.

A lot of the 3s the Hawks give up, are because the wings are too busy “ball watching” and sagging in the lane when guys get beat off the dribble. At some point, they’re going to have to trust that Dwight can be enough to not only deter drives toward the rim, but also not leave shooters open under ANY circumstance.

This is the same issue the Hawks had back in 2010, under Mike Woodson’s “switching defense”. When the switching worked, it was a thing of beauty. But teams eventually figured out that if they could isolate Mike Bibby, the Hawks would be forced to help him. And if the wing tried to help him, the ball handler found an open man out on the 3 point line.

That situation was made worse when we played Orlando, with a then dominant Dwight Howard. Woody was so concerned about Dwight dominating on the inside, that he’d send the wing down to double, and all Dwight had to do is kick it out to the open man. When the Hawks scrambled back to the perimeter, the Magic simply made a few extra passes to get the open look.

The same thing is happening under Budenholzer’s scheme. For some reason, the wings always collapse in the paint, trying to shut off drives, no matter who is going toward the basket ( just as Bradley Beal said ). When that happens, people are open out on the perimeter.

The 3 point breakdowns on defense are disturbing as hell, because the coach can correct that. But if he doesn’t change his scheme, those shots will continue to be available.
