The Warriors Beautiful Offense: No Durant, No Problem

  • Published: 20 May 2019
  • To Increase Your Basketball IQ:

    The Warriors are up 3-0 against the Blazers in the NBA Conference Finals, and their offense has been great with Curry, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green. Despite lacking great shooting around their stars, they're able to create open shots due to their motion, screening, and smart basketball IQ. I breakdown how they counter coverage's, their post split, and more. KD, Kerr, bucks.

    Draymond is like the Quarter Back of the Warriors in terms of finding the open man.

                      @Coach Daniel I think they are clear enough. And the most insightful and well explained that I've seen, for a regular average IQ fan to understand the inner workings of a nba game. But I have a bit of attention deficit and can't keep up well enough with the game sequence running and your explanations. Also I don't master well enough the basketball lingo. But really, really good thing you're on youtube revealing the true greatness of the game. Keep doing this, please, and more often if possible.

                      Thanks man. Are the videos not clear enough the first few times or is it just a lot to digest?

                        Can they do this offense instead in raptors instead of traditional pick and roll? since the raptors are killing them in p&r.

                                    dude, defending an offense like that is as tiring as running that offense itself, if you got me. Its not only their bball IQ that is great, but their stamina is crazy as hell. Soo much offball movement. Thats why i am a warriors fans since steve kerr become their coach

                                      I wish you would speak about how different this offense is from standard offenses. They run plays that other teams don't. The cutter kicks out to the wing and runs off a screen on the baseline for a quick turn around 3, just as the defense has begun to relax b/c they handled the cut. Suddenly, 2 seconds later... an uncontested 3! Who does this?

                                                no durant = no problem
                                                (no durant)/no = (no problem)/no
                                                no-no durant = no- no problem
                                                durant = problem
                                                thus durant the title is saying that the warriors is better off without kd

                                                    You saw what happened when HOU & POR fried the same thing & it didn’t work LOL. In order to beat the warriors, you have to be the warriors because the only time these guys lose is when they beat themselves & that’s with bad transition offense & defense & silly TOs. Even when all of that comes into play, they’re still in the game because they clean up their mistakes & give theirselves a chance.

                                                        Beautiful offense in principle - but can we just point out that the refs are missing (?) tons of moving screens, hips, hands on defender ?

                                                        2:30 , 3:57, 4:05, 4:24, 4:30, 5:57 , 6:27

                                                        Not taking anything away from the systems but it's unfair and impossible to defend if the defense makes the correct adjustments but the refs miss (allow?) that kind of illegal move. On some screen I get why a ref would miss hit as his eyes are somewhere else on the court where the ball is (though you do have 3 refs on court) - but other illegal screens are just simply allowed by them.

                                                          I really like seeing the younger Warriors picking this stuff up.

                                                          The Warriors mix 4D chess with shooting and mind games. By the end of the game, the clutch plays are not for open threes. They are layups, dunks and alley-oops through the slipping. It's almost unfair how good a team this is. The IQ is unmatched.

Taking advantage of the player's strength and weaknesses formulated by the coach and its staff, and the player's intuition and executing it through practice/experience. You just can't have one over the other, you must have both. Kudos to GSW! The only way you could beat a durant-less GSW is when both(or one) of the splash brothers are having a bad shooting night or the opposing team having a VERY good shooting momentum. There's really an unshakable feeling of threat having 2 shooters who moves well around the court, this just consistently drain the physical/mental aspect of their opponents and you can't do anything about it until the splash brothers go past their prime.

                                                                  • Marcus Smith

Even if one or both of the splash brothers are off, they’re still a threat just because you have guys like Draymond Green who can single handily destroy you on a one man fast break or guys who know how to step up when called upon. It’s incredible to see a team dissect a team throughout the game in short amount of minutes. These guys are the reigning champs for a reason; they don’t just play to for the love of the game or money, but for the championship at the end of the season & to actually win. The Warriors are a dynasty and continue to become better every year as they’re core 5 Steph, Klay, Dray, Iggy, & Livingston stay together

But once they step on that court, the communication is there. The understanding of where everyone is supposed to be is there consistently. You don't ever really see them have crazy lapses. Offensively, constant movement off the ball and everyone is always looking to get Steph open; always looking to screen for Klay. And when they're open, the ball is delivered on time and on target consistently." That, is what separates the Warriors from everyone else.
