    Absolutely, off a set play. No worrying about the time, no worrying about breaking down the defence. A guy like Derozan would likely excel in this with a set play designed specifically to hit him with an open jump shot.

    Oh, and nice avatar lol

    So many great comments on this thread, and I agree with many of them.

    Personally, I would love to see a pick and roll with Derozan as the ball handler and Amir/JV as the rollers. If Demar doesn't have the pass or the drive, he hits Lowry with a pass and Lowry can either shoot his shot, swing to Ross in the corner, or hit a rolling Amir/JV. Obviously you can change Lowry and Derozan's roles, so long as they only shoot if the shot is a clear one.



    Bottom line, we need to break down the defence with a real play call, not a lazy hero ball play.
    DD ball handling late game is a sure fire way for him to dribble off his foot. He is not good as the ball handler. Period.

    Lowry or DeRozan or Ross. The ball needs to go to Lowry first though. Either to create his own shot or set up a play for DeRozan or Ross.

    Yeah, I guess I agree with that. Lowry has to be the ball handler, but I still think that Derozan has to somehow be involved in the play, either as the guy who swings the pass into the post or the guy taking the shot off of a screen. Even then, Lowry is #1. Our #2 should be something in the paint if possible.

    Rudy was a good clutch player because his length and high release allowed him to get his shot off even when the defender knew he was going to shoot. We don't have a player like that anymore. I trust Lowry more to take the game winning shot, but Demar has a better chance of getting his shot off in the dying seconds. If you know Lowry isn't playing to pass, he would be easier to smother.

    That being said, I'm all for a high quality play call for the last possession, and what I said above is strictly in a ISO situation with only a few seconds remaining.

    Screw this, let's just give it to DeRozan so he can draw a foul

    I have a play that the other team would never expect

    We take a timeout and during the timeout Casey puts on Dwight Buycks jersey and subs himself in
    We then run a series of screen for Casey and throw him an alley OOP!
    Casey also got fouled
    He hits the free throw ( Anti Salmons)

    Chaos ensues because who would of thought a coach getting a game winning Alley OOP?
