One thing I'd like to see the team improve on...

It's hard, sometimes, when you are playing an over-matched team to see areas in need of improvement, but one stands out to me.

We need to get better at finishing drives through contact of the "-and one". Too often our player is contacted around the basket during the shot and the ball rolls off the rim. A lot of that, I think, is due to the extraordinary effort our drivers go to attract contact from the defender. Take 5 for instance. When he drives, he hangs in the air not far off the ground and flips the ball up from underneath as he fades slightly away from the basket. He draws the foul most of the time, but his move robs him of the power needed to finish the shot successfully.
