Upsizing – Cleaning the Glass
Nance and Thompson have also punctured the Celtics’ switching scheme with their offensive rebounding. This is an overlooked weakness of the switch: with good offensive rebounders rolling hard to the rim, a switch means there’s a mismatch on the glass. One study I did years ago showed that when a shot was taken in the immediate action following a switch, the offensive rebounding rate exceeded 40%, a very high number.

Sure enough, the Cavs’ offensive rebounding rate the last two games has been great, an effort led by Thompson and Nance:

The NBA Playoffs Are Finally Getting Faster
“James’s teams — a constant presence in the East playoffs for more than a decade — not only play slower than most believe, they also like to slow the pace even more during the playoffs, in an effort to allow James to control every inch of the floor. His teams, either the Cavaliers or the Miami Heat, have played slower in the Eastern Conference portion of the playoffs than in the regular season in 12 of the 13 years he has made the playoffs, including this year. On average, they’ve played 3.40 possessions slower, and this year they’re 6.70 possessions slower.”

LeBron & Co. are faced with a spry Celtics contender ... and organizational fatigue
"Like the Miami Heat before them and to a certain extent the last generation's Cavs, it seems to be a side effect of having James: where the quest for championships combined with a lack of security over keeping James leads to some win-now, pay-later decisions. Acquire older veterans instead of developing younger players. Sign players to large contracts because they fit with James or because they can't be replaced if they leave in free agency. Trade draft picks to get veterans or as a way to relieve payroll pressure. Deal with the stress of repeated long playoff runs, endure massive media scrutiny, manage varying degrees of drama."

Inside the tense and wacky NBA draft lottery room
"It's always fun watching the televised lottery in the locked-down drawing room, already knowing the results. You wait for people to have their hearts broken on live television. This year's highlight: the camera zooming in on Gertz after the Hawks moved up. She leaned back, triumphant, and mouthed, 'Oh, yeah.' The room erupted. One person yelled, 'This is the best part of being in this room!'"
