yeah, i remember that too. in particular, the defense was being sent in to attack/pinch on every possession. i thought it was actually effective. then they started to regress back into a phalanx. not sure what happened there. seems now the players are just so afraid of making a mistake on defense and getting benched they wont possibly take a chance offensively... until they're completely backed-up against the wall. then, like last night, they look good in the last 10 mins...
