I understand the Pacers decision to put a larger player on Derrick Rose, as he has been able to consistently destroy Darren Collison when he has the ball. Enter Paul George/Dahntay Jones. Good move, Vogel. The problem that I have been having is the Bulls reaction to such a switch. I know Bogans is not an all world offensive player, but he is bigger than Collison in every way. Might be time for Bogans to dust off some semblance of a post game.
I know what 50% are going to say (and what the other 50% are thinking), but this cross-match HAS to be exploited by the Bulls, and not just for Korver's two ten-minute stints. For Bogans to just stand on the perimeter, allowing Collison to play off of him so much is not cutting it. Even Brewer cutting the baseline would be more welcomed than Bogans hiding out on the wing.
I think that given Boozer's inability to establish any kind of presence down there, the good guys have to get someone down there, even if it's just to open some lanes for cutters. I think that if they were to go to a set based on getting the ball in the post every 3-4 times down the court, it might keep Indy on their heels a little bit more, guessing where we are going to try and beat them. What really amazes me is just how much ALL BULLS NOT NAMED ROSE seem to be watching him more and more. I'm starting to feel like Rose's amazing play down the stretch allowed a touch of complacency among his teammates that Rose will bail them out in the end. So curious to see how they respond to the Game 4 loss. Excited to hear Korver already mention Thibs is installing some new plays on the offensive end.
