Yesterday marked Day 132 of the NBA lockout, and the first practice day for the Mavs’ D-League affiliate, the Texas Legends. HittingNothingBut.Net offers plenty of video from that practice session, including this bit from Legends head coach Del Harris:
Nothing revolutionary, but a smart point brought up by Harris on the offense/defense dynamic in a practice setting. We often limit our consideration of basketball to what occurs in-game and conversely, see practice as an ambiguous cure-all. But the path toward improvement requires a good sense of both offensive and defensive logistics.
