Great Piece. Thx, Coach. One thing, though. I think there's a misplacement in one of the videos. In the "vs Switch" section, you mention how CP3 is yelling at Crowder to set a backscreen, and in the video, I see no Jae on court at all. And the whole sequence seems not to be the one you've described in the first place as well. Except for that, really really appreciate the awesome masterpiece of a breakdown.

Hi Coach, I'm just now going back and trying to learn from all of your old breakdowns. First of all, GREAT stuff - I've learned so much already.

But one question I have, from an X's and O's standpoint, is what happened to the Suns in Game 7 vs. the Mavs? From this breakdown and others you've had on the Suns, they're an elite and well-coached offense and defense. You had an in-series breakdown vs the Mavs, but unless I missed it, I didn't see anything after Game 7. In the aftermath I saw mostly "they collapsed" or "they're not clutch" from most analysts. But from an X's and O's POV, how did Luka and company destroy them on offense while containing them on the other end in Game 7?
