Carter, Miles, West aren't making those 3's overtop Malcom, Justin, Joe

Nor would they allow an opposing PG to grab 10 rebounds!! Sorry to live in the past but It's crazy how good those guys were rebounding and defending the perimeter. At the same time, we might have a better interior Defense now than we did back then. Anyway, our personnel is different now and it will be fun to see our young guards develop. Kyle and Ty having plenty of developing to do on Defense while the Devon's are both excellent defending against penetration. I'm loving the defensive trajectory of Hunter and Diakite. We still have a dominant Defense, but we are doing it with completely different personnel. To me, this speaks to the fluidity of Tony's system on defense. If we hold our last opponent to 60 ( which we most often do) , we win despite so many turnovers and no inside production. I don't believe there are more than 4 opponents left on our schedule who can score 70 against us.
