One of the things that makes me really laugh is the idea that certain coaches have brilliant systems when it all comes down to good outside shooting.

Watching the 76ers beat Denver and the Lakers, then lose to the Celtics, you would think Brett Brown is a genius in the first two games and complete crap in the loss. But all they did was miss wide open three pointers against the Celtics after making all of them in the wins. (And have Al Horford prevent Embiid from dominating the game inside).

How many times have we seen Boston do a single ball screen and then pass back to the guy in the corner? The only difference is that the winning team hit their wide open three pointers.
