Nate Wolf University of Virginia '18
I wouldn’t call the video standalone evidence. His defensive shot chart this past season was poor and he’s not been good slithering around picks since the knee injury.
As far as the play itself…yes, I believe Casspi needs to be more attentive. Rondo also needs to cover the man with the ball. Regardless of whether it’s Steph Curry or Tony Allen running to the corner, you don’t just not guard anyone unless they’re a non-shooter. If anything, this shows how poor the communication was on a defense he was supposed to be leading.
That said, you make a good point on how the defense earlier in the play was solid. If anything, the video is just kind of hilarious. Anyways, I appreciate the comment.
