Teams that extend a lot of pressure out to the perimeter bother us

because whoever brings the ball up often waits at the perimeter for a 1st mover and usually ultimately a 2nd mover to get open out on the elbow. The first wing moving almost never gets open against a solid defense and the second one is a 75/25 prop at best. At that point the 2nd mover usually either takes a 3 (depending on how open he is), passes into the post or looks for a cutter to the hoop, but the 2nd mover still has to get open and against big physical defenses, they can struggle with that, especially Kyle, at his size. When our first two potential pass recipients are both taken out of the mix, our offense usually bogs down badly.

Sorry if that was crudely explained... I have a good understanding of our ball movement from watching so much but a horrible understanding of the Xs and Os way to phrase it.
