Thoughts Through Day 3
Posted by Glass Half Full, October 5, 2006, 3:56PM
Through five practices - including two sets of two-a-days - here are three thoughts:
* Attention to detail has been emphasized in every single drill. Bottom line: when on the floor, whether setting a screen, taking care of the ball, or being in the correct defensive position, do things the right way. The little things make a difference.
* Like last year, the focus of camp has been on defense. It's what separates the good teams from the bad. Glass Half Full goes back to a key defensive stat from a season ago: Orlando was 1-19 when allowing its opponent to shoot 50 percent or better from the floor.
* With essentially the same group returning, cleaning up offensive execution, limiting turnovers and player and ball movement has also been a point of emphasis.
* Bonus: Camp MVP to date: Keyon Dooling. He brings energy and has shot the ball extremely well.
