Play Calling for the Last Shot

We got to see a little of the play calling down the stretch in a tight game on Saturday. The first play was designed for Jamal Murray, who was able to get into the key and shoot a jumper with the last shot going to Ulis. Or at least attempting to go to Ulis, as we all know the rare turnover committed by Tyler.

Earlier in the day we saw Oklahoma’s Lon Kruger design one of the best plays I’ve seen in quite some time in the win against LSU. He had Buddy Hield post in the high paint as if he was going to get the ball, fake a screen into a flare cut before Isaiah Cousins was able to take two dribbles into the paint and hit his jumper. Would you rather see something like that or let your guy in Ulis and Murray create?

I’m completely fine with the giving those two the ball and having them make a play. We saw Murray do it on Saturday and we’ve seen Ulis do it time after time. My question to you is which one would you rather have creating that shot? Give it to Ulis, who is better at not turning it over and quicker or give it to Murray who is more creative and seems to hit contested shots more than others?

    You definitely draw it up for Tyler, because he will pass to someone if they have a better look. If you draw it up for Murray, you’re using a permanent marker on that dry erase board.
