The zone was handled pretty awful, expecially during crunch time. It was usually a Lebron 3 or jumper, Chalmers trying to force the issue, or Wade losing the ball..........and when either of them did not have the ball they were usually just standing in a corner.
There should have been more off the ball movement, pick and rolls, quick passes.......that's how you get at the zone. Nevertheless Dallas looked so comfortable defensively whenever they did run the zone. They knew if the Heat missed they did not have to worry about offensive boards either, they loled at the thought of it even happening.
Too many jump shots. Too much standing around. It's a combination of Dallas' defense, and the Heat (surprisingly) having no answer. Their offense looked way too predictable too often, considering they have two of the most explosive players on the court. I would have liked to see James pull the ball back a little away from 3 point line when starting the play, exactly like Manu Ginobili does, and give himself more room to get past his man on an isolation play and slash to the rim, shoot, or dish. Instead of getting the ball right at the 3 point line or lower off a pick-and-pop and having no room to create/no room to put the ball down. He's better in the open court, I don't know why it seemed like he let off the gas in the Finals - but I don't think the offensive sets helped him thrive.
The Lakers got killed by their zone too. What do you expect? Best way to kill a zone is offensive rebound like madmen and shoot the lights out, neither of which Miami is good at other than brief stretches in games.
