Looked so much better out there than the previous game. Kaman must've clearly helped. Picked it up on the glass especially too and shot a much better percentage.
Yeah him and Kaman really seem to play well off of each other and get each other easy shots galore. I think 4 of 5 of the shots Kaman made were dunks and Gasol was able to post up on mismatches cause the bigger guy was on Kaman.
I'll question Shaw's coaching a little because for some reason he thought it was a good idea to have Faried try to play the post game AGAINST Gasol..
But when it comes down to it McGee is gonna jump at everything, so Kaman and Gasol are a bane to the Nuggets starting 4-5 combination because we'll always have the mismatch advantage when we go into the post.
That and Shawne Williams AND Jordan Hill were able to hold Faried in check for the most part. He was very frustrated cause of that front court.
We have a very deep and strong front court, and a very depthful backcourt, so Faried was frustrated on both fronts, in one avenue he has to fight Jordan Hill for rebounds and was outdone, in the other avenue he had to fight Shawne Williams on the defensive end and couldn't score on him.
So I like our interior defense in the half court set thus far, and the depth of our wing attack. We have options everywhere pretty much and I like it a lot!
Gasol and Kaman's chemistry for early offense and easy shots which allow us to get back on defense and get set is very vital for us defensively.
