Layups: Jon Nichols On the Remaining Teams’ Weaknesses

Posted by Neil Paine on May 8, 2009

Our friend Jon Nichols runs, but he's also writing a weekly column now for Hardwood Paroxysm, stepping into the stathead breach left by David Sparks when The Arbitrarian was assimilated into the Collective. :) This week, Jon looks at the weaknesses of the 8 teams that survived round 1 of the playoffs. Particularly interesting is his take on Houston's low steal %, and why it may not be such a bad thing for the Rockets' D.

(H/T: TrueHoop.)
