We really didn't appear to gameplan this one very well, especially in the second half. We had no scheme on offense beyond "give IT the ball". Not nearly enough ball and player movement. We made it easy for Toronto for stop us, unless IT hit on several very difficult shots (he didn't tonight).
On the other end, look: Derozan is going to do Derozan things. He's good, he's going to get calls, and if he's hitting shots you just live with it. The problem is when you let their bit players play well too. They kept forcing our defense to switch bigs onto their guards - especially Jerebko - and we never really adjusted to that tactic.
Lastly, I know the trendy thing right now is to complain about Danny not trading for a rebounder. But the guys we have need to make a better effort. Notably, Horford had multiple loose balls in his area tonight that he did not go after. He didn't grab a single board in the second half. We need better from many of our guys in that phase of the game, but we particularly need better from him. I get that he's a glue guy who does many things that don't show up in the stat sheet. But he's way too talented to be putting up 8/5/1/1 stat lines. That just isn't good enough.
I'm going against the grain. I believe our current team has the pieces to make a good run and give Toronto and Cleveland very competitive battles in the playoffs, especially when Bradley gets back. But we need to play smarter, and we need to play harder.
