Jacksonville was hot from beyond the arc in the first half (5-of-9) in their loss to Indiana on Friday night, and it’s a theme that continued until the final buzzer (10-of-17, 58.8 percent).
The Dolphins did hit a few of the contested variety, but some defensive miscues by the Hoosiers also gave them open looks. A look at four such miscues in the latest edition of Film Session.
I. We start this sequence with the Hoosiers on offense. Jacksonville is applying a little pressure in the full court. Yogi Ferrell has the ball and Tom Crean — as you can hear in the video — yells “Get it down to Jordan!” to Ferrell. Hulls is down on the right wing unguarded:
Hulls — as he did five times in the first half — hits the three.
But Jacksonville turns it right back around and gives the Hoosiers a taste of their own medicine. Both Ferrell and Hulls are calling for someone to pick up Jeremy Bogus, as he’s left unmarked. (For the record: Christian Watford – the last one across the timeline — had been checking Bogus during this stretch of the game):
Bogus has plenty of space once he receives the ball:
II. Indiana applies some full-court pressure with Sheeladipo putting two bodies on Marcellous Bell:
Jacksonville is able to get the ball over the top of Sheehey, Oladipo and Remy Abell to Evin Graham:
From there, the Dolphins have a 3-on-2 scenario across the timeline. Graham passes it to Dylan Fritsch on the left wing:
Who connects on the 3-pointer:
III. Bogus throws an entry pass to Tyler Alderman:
Ferrell sinks down into the lane to apply some pressure to Alderman. As he does this, Bogus has left his spot on the right wing:
Ferrell loses Bogus in the mix as Alderman passes out to him at the top of the key:
It’s another three for the Dolphins:
IV. On an inbounds play, Fritsch sets a screen for Kordario Fleming:
Fritsch keeps moving and gets a screen of his own from Glenn Powell:
Fritsch catches just inside the 3-point line:
He steps back and shoots and connects over Hulls, who is giving up several inches to him:
