Jazz scouted Perth

Seems the Jazz took the wildcats pretty seriously. Doesn't mean other teams didn't scout their aussie opponents but says alot more to me than an of the cuff gsw like comment.

Yeah, well, they may have. But a lot of what happened was Perth shooting themselves in the foot. They got plenty of open jumpers so their offense wasn't completely broken, but I don't think I've seen a pro team shoot that poorly before.

I think they will do better against Denver. Or at least I hope so. I'm done making fun of them for the loss for now. There are a lot of reasons why what happened, happened, and I think they can do better.

Purely from an outsiders assessment of the coaches, it does not surprise me at all that one (Quin) would scout and the other (Doc) would not.

Perth need to redeem themselves against Denver, not so much for the people on here laying crap on them but for themselves and the NBL.

People are forgetting that along with playing a great NBA team, they were playing at altitude as well. Probably contributed to a lot of misses

@Nogg - After reading your post I checked out the altitude in Salt Lake City compared to Perth. Never really thought of that impacting a basketball game. 4100ft in Salt Lake City compared to 103ft in Perth CBD.

I hate Perth, it's part of my Sixers DNA.

West Coast Eagles won the most significant sporting event in our country. The vast majority of the team are supporters of everything Western Australian.

They played like they had planks of wood attached to their legs. It was embarrassing, however like other posters said. They got open, they just couldn’t hit anything all night. I don’t blame them after the 40 hour travel there, 1 day feel for the venue and then to sit and watch the Eagles claw their way back into the game and eventually win it

Mind probably back in the game for Denver.

@Train, altitude just means the air is a bit thinner. If you're not used to it, you don't have the red blood cells to get enough oxygen to your lungs. It's why Denver (even more altitude) has such a massive home court advantage

It was even worse than the stinker 5 years ago: Perth vs Townsville 25/1/13
Perth 31.9% field goal percentage
Townsville 39.1%

It's not hard to scout the horn sets and flex offense.

Quin Synder is an unbelievably good coach - and very professional. Im not surprised he scouted Perth - takes his job very seriously.

Denver is higher than Utah I believe.

maybe altitude referring to 11ft, not 4100ft?!

Correct - marijuana is legal in Colorado.

LOL! Philly scouted Melbourne, I think most teams would do some scouting for a pre-season game and practice executing their scouts.
