Seth Curry, Sixers open up on playing zone defense in their latest win

USA Today


Article Summary:

A lot of the zone’s success came from Matisse Thybulle being able to use his length and his defensive instincts to get out and into the passing lanes.

With the Sixers facing a Rockets team that features a top playmaker in John Wall as well as shooters like Eric Gordon, Danuel House Jr., and even DeMarcus Cousins who can get out and shoot the ball, the zone threw them out of their groove.

“The zone was good for us,” said Seth Curry. “You got to use different things in this league to just throw off offenses especially ones like the Rockets who spread it out. They have a lot of good playmakers and scorers so you got to go throw different looks at them and it was good for us in a few games this year. It’s good to have that in our back pocket to switch it up on teams.”

The Sixers were able to hold off Houston after they were able to figure out Philadelphia’s zone, but overall, it turned out that it was a very good tool for them on the defensive end of the floor.
