From logging I did the Lakers ran 0.67 actions per possession in the first quarter last night. The Celtics ran 1.35 APP. That was normal offense, ignoring ATO sets, out of bounds sets, and transition possessions.

The Celtics coaching staff schemed advantages for their players twice as frequently as the Lakers’ staff. Twice as many 0.5-2 step advantages most times on a defender. Twice as many opportunities for the defense to miscommunicate. Twice as many chances to pull in help defense.

The Lakers can out-talent a lot of teams. But they can’t do that vs every team, and numerous Laker lineups can’t do so vs any team.

I like to look at scheme as how well you’re equipping you’re team to succeed. You can have studs w/r/t talent, but if your Green Berets are showing up to a gun fight with baseball bats their job will still be a lot tougher in their fight than it needs to be on equal footing.

Stupid question: what are actions per possession?

I’m defining actions as purposeful player movement almost always using a screening action to generate separation from the defense. Ex: pin downs, cross screens, pick & roll, flare screens, split cuts, back screens, floppy action, etc.
