McKay vs Jawai
Is there anybody out there who can explain Gleeson's tactics to me???
This is what we know, going into the game:
1) No way can McKay hold Jawai defensively.
2) Mckay sometimes give s away soft fouls early, gets benched, then struggles to assert himself.
3) If he doesn't get into trouble early, he can use his speed and leap to advantage, builds confidence, and have a night out.
4) Jawai will tire as the game progresses.
So WTF does Trev Do? Puts McKay on Jawai from the start, waits till Jawai sits down then immediately benches McKay.
Even after Brandt has proven better at guarding Jawai, he persist with the match-up until McKay completely loses his shit.
But once Jawi fouls out, he leaves the league's best rebounder sitting on the bench.
I'm not bashing Gleeson for the sake of it, I'd just like somebody to explain his strategy.
Nor am I bashing McKay. Both he and Jawai have limitations, the trick is in how to best use their strengths. Trev used Jawai well last season, and Fearne also does a good job.
