Edited ratings/tendencies (except for touches) for the Lakers and ran a sim against the Knicks.
The Knicks did something they never did against my un-edited Nets team - attack the rim with ferocity.
The Line: 12 points, 12 assists, 3 turnovers (3-9 FG, 0-3 3PT, 6-7 FT)
What Happened: All three of Felton's baskets were "And One" layups.
The Line: 17 points (5-8 FG, 0-0 3PT, 7-7 FT)
What Happened: Chandler had an "And One" dunk that rattled in. He obviously got 7 FTA from attacking the rim a lot. I don't have too much of a problem though, because the rest of his shots were Isolation jumpers.
The Line: 13 points (4-9 FG, 2-7 3PT, 3-4 FTA)
What Happened: Two open threes, two semi-fastbreak dunks. I won't complain about the two dunks, because those were his only non-3PA of the night.
The Line: 30 points, 7 rebounds, 4 assists (10-15 FG, 10-11 FT)
What Happened: Gasol and Odom simply could not keep up with Amare. That's accurate, but I felt there were 2 dunks Amare had that came too easily (due to the animation). In total he had 4 dunks, 3 layups, and 2 jumpers.
The Line: 6 points, 12 rebounds, 4 blocks (2-5 FG, 0-1 3PT, 2-2 FT)
What Happened: Both shots were dunks. One off a cut, one off a rebound.
The Line: 10 points, 2 blocks (4-6 FG, 2-2 FT)
What happened: All 4 shots were dunks. This is what pissed me off and made me write this.
Dunk #1: Ratliff contests Felton's shot but he passes out to Turiaf who has a clear path. I didn't like this before but it's mainly the CPU defense's fault rather than a baseline exploit. Dunk#2: Amare passes from top of 3pt arch to Turiaf (who has to gather the ball). Turiaf then does a standing dunk. I would have preferred this pass go out of bounds given the passer & receiver.
Dunk#3: Fastbreak dunk off pass from Gallinari. I'm okay with this - it's why I boosted PF/C speed.
Dunk#4: Dunk off a basket cut from the Double Roll play. I'm definitely okay with that.
So really, I'm OKAY with the results... and I suppose it's better than him scoring on post-ups... and this is exactly what I wanted... I just don't like when there are too many dunks is all.
The Line: 5 points, 5 assists, 0 TO (2-3 FG, 1-1 3PT)
What Happened: A three off Douglas' favorite screen play, and a fastbreak layup.
The Line: 13 points, 6 rebounds (5-7 FG, 3-3 FT)
What Happened: Surprisingly, only one dunk. Randolph had a mid-range shot off a broken pass, a fastbreak layup, a pick and roll layup, a putback off a rebound, and his dunk was also a putback but a strange one. He rebounded the ball, FAKED A PASS, and then went up for his standing dunk. The defense didn't react to the pass fake, and really should have been trying to swarm him, but instead just watched Randolph gather himself.
The Line: 14 points (7-17 FG, 0-4 3PT, 0-0 FT)
What Happened: Mason scored 6 times via his favorite screen play. I think it's time to take it out of his repertoire.
The Line: 11 points (4-5 FG, 1-1 3PT, 2-3 FT)
What Happened: One fastbreak dunk, two Iso jumpers, one "and one" layup off a cut
Aside from the usual Mason rubbish, Knicks didn't run too many plays (at least plays that worked). In total there were 15 dunks, and I'd like to try and cut that number in half. I might have to drop some dunk ratings to do it.
I'm not going to get too into detail on the Lakers since I didn't adjust their touches and haven't analyzed their playbooks.
The Line: 4 points, 2 assists (1-3 FG, 0-1 3PT, 2-2 FT)
The Line: 46 points (19-32 FG, 1-1 3PT, 7-10 FT)
What Happened: It's better to just make a list.
Iso Drives: 4 (one dunk)
Iso Jumper: 3 (one with foot on 3pt line)
Spot-Ups: 4 (one three, one with foot on 3pt line)
Off-Screen Jumper: 3
I'd heard that Kobe was taking too many off-screen jumpers before, so it seems my tendency changes fixed that.
The Line: 8 points, 6 rebounds, 8 assists, 4 TO (2-6 FG, 1-3 3PT, 3-4 FT)
The Line: 15 points, 10 rebounds, 2 blocks (5-8 FG, 1-2 3PT, 4-6 FT)
The Line: 36 points, 7 rebounds, 4 assists (14-22 FG, 8-9 FT)
The Line: 8 points (3-4 FG, 1-2 3PT, 1-1 FT)
The Line: 5 points, 3 assists (2-2 FG, 1-1 3PT)
The Line: 0 points (0-3 FG, 0-2 3PT)
The Line: 0 points, 4 rebounds, 3 assists (0-2 FG)
The Line: 2 points (1-1 FG)
The Lakers only had three dunks (one for Kobe, one for Gasol, one for Brown), which I found a bit surprising, especially since Kobe took a lot of shots. Of course, the presence of Andrew Bynum probably would have changed all that.
Looks like it's time to make some Touch adjustments, and solve Roger Mason once and for all.
