    This is what Kenny brought up last night on TNT and today on Sirius radio. Flip uses zone a lot more than needed if at all with this team. He feels that this team is built for man/man and zone is for regular season game.

    What do y'all think?

    I did think that the zone helped a lot in the 3rd quarter of game 4, but i think it carries risks (inducing passivity; making boxing out harder).

    i don't think i'd use it tonight unless ALL of the following conditions were fulfilled: 1) we are playing with a ton of energy defensively; 2) we are trapping; and 3) d wade is still shredding the defense at will.

    if that were the case, i might try the zone for a couple of minutes only just to disrupt their flow here and there.
