Kaninang madaling-araw ko lang napanood nang buo ang game 1 ng Dallas at Miami. At kung ako ang tatanungin, isang stat ang kapansin-pansing nagpanalo sa Dallas: defensive rebounding.
No team can shoot a hundred percent from the field. Given 'yan. Litaw na litaw ang halaga ng defensive rebounding after Dallas took a ten-point lead about 4 minutes into the fourth quarter. Miami started to catch fire, pero as is always the case, there'll be some misses. Ang magandang nagawa ng Dallas, hindi nila hinayaang makapagbuild-up ng momentum ang Miami by letting them grab offensive rebounds. Parang ang mantra ng Mavs noon: one possession, one shot. You can only defend so well, and with scoring machines like Shaq and Wade on the floor, the best you can do is limit their possesions to a single attempt. At, dahil nga nauubos ang oras, pag ganyang nakikipagpalitan ka lang ng shoot sa isang kalabang lamang sa iyo, well, sorry ka na lang.
But then again, Dallas' brilliance in the defensive rebounding department can be largely attributed to their solid perimeter D and great post-denial defense. Hindi ko naisip na sasabihin ko 'to sa tanang-buhay na 'to, pero Eric Dampier did a great job denying the entry pass, at least for that valuable six-minute stretch in the third quarter.
Sa Game 2: Expect the Heat to try to dump it low into Shaq, and expect the Mavs to try to run more. Expect Riley to play Shaq and Alonzo Mourning for at least a few possessions-- especially when Dirk's not on the floor. Expect Marquis Daniels to shadow Wade a bit more. Expect Dampier to play more minutes and get into foul trouble earlier; expect Dirk to be more aggresive on the offensive end. Expect the Mavs to win it by at least four points.
(Tangina hindi ko makita ang box scores! Pero itaga ninyo sa bato, wala sa +/-10% ang defensive rebounding ng parehong kupunan sa Game 1.)
