Casey Urges DeRozan To Attack Rim, Draw Fouls
DeMar DeRozan recorded his best game of the season last Sunday, with a season-high 27 points and a career-high 16 free-throws, but followed that up with a poor performance against the Hawks on Tuesday.
Dwane Casey and his assistants continue to preach the need to attack the basket.
“Get to alleys,” he said. “Recognize going to the hole.
“We want him to go at guys,” Casey said. “Go at the shoulder. Don’t veer, don’t avoid contact. I’m a big believer that in any sport, you can’t have fear of going to a guy’s body. You want him to almost treat it like a football hole, and bust through and get to the rim.”
