Great read on Grantland about how we are a threat to emerge from the West, largely because of the post-Rudy success, but only if Zach gets right. Zach is shooting 41% out of the post this season...31% the past 12 games. Yikes...it also discusses Bayless' increased role off of the bench, our reduced turnovers and increased shooting percentage post-trade.
Zach is the key to this playoff run. If he can either A. Recover and be 3/4ths of the player he was in November or B. Accept his role as garbageman on the boards and allow the offense to be run through Mike and Marc more often, we are going to make a run. If not, we will fall in the first round, again.
