I know shit about basketball tactics, but Miami seems to be doing a great job of getting Kemba switched onto bigger guys on defense close to the basket, and it’s no contest from there.
Has he been scored on a bunch down there? He's def been switched onto Butler a few trips down, but I don't think Butler has scored..

Miami missed a golden opportunity to bust this game open. The Celtics need to come at them hard the rest of this quarter, and need to stop making mental mistakes like not boxing out

They're playing like garbage and still hanging in there, somehow.

I don't understand why the entire team is playing like dogshit. Just terrible effort after 4 days off

It's not at all difficult. If you know the other team is going to switch on a P&R, you just target the matchup you want and run the P&R with that pairing. The other team will do what they do - switch - and voila, you've got your desired matchup. It's exactly what Jim Calhoun did on the famous Kemba setback against Pitt when he was at UConn. Calhoun knew Pitt would switch on a P&R and got the exact matchup he wanted - Kemba against a slow-footed big. And the result was predictable.

Amazing how getting one to drop changes the whole mindset.
