Zone Experiment #1
Guard Average: 52/64/61 (ATH/SPD/DEF)
Forward Average: 63/39/62
Forwards: 11 and 51
My opponents two main scoring options are:
1. A guard that takes about 60% of his shots as threes.
This guy has an advantage on my guards. I will be playing a +2 defense to try to limit him.
2. A guard/forward that relies on ath/spd to score.
Less than 10% of his shots are three pointers and he seems to get fouled alot. I think this is the type of guy that the high block center will help on it. We'll see.
The guard I was worried about went 4-12 (2-7 for 3FGA).
The guard/ forward actually played the 2,3,4 and 5 during the game. I don't have the time to isolate his shots per position but he went 9-19 (1-1 for 3FA) and took 11 FTs (although 4 were when we were intentionally fouling).
As a team, my opponents shot a little over 42% for 2 point shots and a little under that for 3 point shots.
We had been playing a 3-2 previously. As expected, the 2fg% was lower in the 2-3 and the 3fg% was higher. Although,the computer "adjusted" my defense at 1/2 time from a +2 to a +0. Against the +2 my opponent was 2-7 (pretty much our season average) against the +0 they were 3-5.
