Defensive Agression

KD hyped me to this Kings-centric entry over at The Xs and Os of Basketball site, a place I always glance at but never read. I am wrong for neglecting it so.

This is video package from the Dallas game Xs and Os put together to show off Reggie Theus' pressure man-to-man, which I'd always considered to be a product more of having a bunch of gamblers in the backcourt positions rather than a sentient strategy.

It makes sense, considering the lack of shotblocking on the interior. And it makes me feel kind-of good to think there is a defensive strategy going on here.
