Mike Brown's awful coaching is continuing in Game 6.
I’ve been very critical of Mike Brown during the Eastern Conference Finals, but it’s really hard to watch the Cavs defensive strategy – along with the offensive strategy, substitution pattern, etc.
Dwight Howard has gone to the middle of the lane constantly throughout the series, allowing him to easily see over the weak double-teams the Cavs send.
If he starts to go baseline, he always spins back to the middle.
I don’t know why the Cavs haven’t tried to force Howard baseline. It would be more difficult to double him, but Cleveland’s defenders should stay at home on Orlando’s shooters.
In the end, none of this will matter because the Magic will advance to the finals. But as an NBA fan, I refuse to let the NBA coach of the year off the hook.
Brown deserves to face scrutiny for his pathetic effort in this series.
