MILWAUKEE – Markelle Fultz could have been a week or even a month away from his first game play with Magic Magic, but there is already an increase that just changes the landscape, but a change to a help system to go back to the form that helped him to be a pick No. 1 of the NBA 2017 Draft.
In Philadelphia, where Fultz struggled most for injuries and jumping out the last and a half season, 76ers ran most of a bid offense where the first option was to pitch the ball inside of 7-footer Joel Embiid. As a result, the least selected players in these players are running this week (656) and the smallest optional plays, according to analytical data from Second Spectrum. Last season – the first Fultz in the NBA – ranked the Sixers pick-up and a drop-down roll and the latter recently in pick-and-pops.
As a result, Fultz is rarely allowed to play for his strengths from college – acting on pick-and-roll settings. He only made 57 pick-and-roll play in the 2017-18 season, where he was a ball handle and 49 pick-and-pop plays. In this season, in the 19 games that played before being diagnosed with a lateral outlet syndrome, Fultz handled the ball in 63 pitch-and-roll plays. The defenders introduced many of those plays going “; on screens because of their reluctance and shooting struggle from the 3 point line.
The Magic trade with the guard point 6-foot-4, 200-pound before the Thursday trading date, feeling that they could help Fultz go back to the kind of play that was sweeping before the NBA 2017. Draft One season At the University of Washington, Fultz received an average of 23.2 points, 5.9 help and 5.7 rebounds game and 47.6 percent at floor shooting and 41.3 percent from the 3 point line. In addition to having 10 games at least 20 points, five rebounds and five rebounds, the first person was 25 years old to 20-5-5 while shooting 40 percent from a range 3 points.
Compared to the fun style that the 76ers use, the ninth Magic stage in the NBA is the number of picks and rolls of this play. About 55.1 percent of these came to the ball handling shooting – the highest 16 percentage in the 30-team NBA, according to the Second Spectrum. In addition, they ran 683 pick-and-pop plays, the top 20 in the NBA.
The magic coach, Steve Clifford, is using some of his bad time on a third night road trip, through the team city to watch some of the Fultz's NBA games and analyze his play in his short time with the Sixers. Clifford said on Saturday night, he was watching four to five games. & # 39; & # 39;
Brett Brown Clifford and Philadelphia were close friends for many years, and Clifford said he intends to come out to Brown for a deeper analysis of Fultz.
The first business orders for Fultz, of course, will be getting their shoulders healthy and working to improve their shooting form. Undoubtedly, Fultz will work extensively with the assistant coach of Magic and shooting dresses Bruce Kreutzer and co-assistant Steve Hetzel – committees with the goalkeeper of Charlotte Kemba Walker 's best-standing guard to make it an elite shooter.
It's a great deal “ How you are fit for your staff, and the best players can play with any system in any system, 'said Clifford. “ For me, if you want to start a different city, a new start, a different team, things like that (it could help Fultz). But to be of course, the issue of a shoulder (Fultz) and its shooting and if you do not have a shooter range, you will not go well with a pick-and-roll player. With that part, we will see. & # 39; & # 39;
MAKING TO MAKE: In time when there was a 3-point shooting – and which restricts other teams from 3 point shooting – it was not even more important, the Milwaukee Bucks made the protection of customization like a statistical badge.
Milwaukee is the highest defense of the NBA (103.8 points per 100 holdings) this season despite the first ranking in the 3rd point allowed (12.9 per game) and three candidates (36 per game). As well as being exceptional in protecting the edge and keeping the paint over, the Bucks have a moderate job on 3-point shooters. Despite the great number of efforts and efforts, people are shooting only 35.7 percent over the arcade (NBA 17th) against the Bucks.
`Their offense is great, but the difference in their team is their defense, & # 39; & # 39; Clifford raved. “ In life (basketball) where everyone is accepted, Do not put up trips and you have to transfer everything (to protection) & # 39; and we're right along the same, (Milwaukee) back to how everyone was a few years ago. So, it's very interesting what they are doing. & # 39; & # 39;
Milwaukee committee Mike Budenholzer said the 22-year-old squad squad in February for Dallas said: `We do not want to be the team who is giving up the most, to be honest with you. I love that we are one of the high-rated defense teams in the series and that's why we take great pride. We would definitely want to take out the paint and take off the basket and start with it. … But could we be smarter and give up fewer trees? That was the next step towards getting better. But we're not proud of the same (the NBA is lasting 3 points). & # 39; & # 39;
Milwaukee Giannis Antetokounmpo took over the Superstar game against Magic because of the team calling for a knee's right illness.
“ The disease and the pounding on its body are quite significant. I do not think it's a long-term thing, just back-up and the times it puts on, at night, this is a need tonight, "says Budenholzer.

But all staff (travel extensions are difficult), so you need to cope with it and try to give it every night. & # 39; & # 39;
