I donít think itís quite like that. Instead of relying on a couple stars, theyíve been playing as a team more. Theyve built more trust around each other and are moving the ball more. You can tell from the stats too. Their assists are much higher this year.

Ultimately it needs to be Kyle and Demar winning close games, like tonight's against Miami. In previous years they had been playing more "Iso-Ball". Meaning everyone knew their Allstar backcourt was taking all the big shots. Now they still should be taking big shots at the end of quarters, halfs and games. See Kyle's buzzer beater at the half tonight?

What the bench mob provides is depth so they can let Kyle and Demar sit large swaths of games. My favourite bench mob player is Delon Wright. He's not the best shooter by his paint penetration ability is $$.

They've also, finally, realized that 3's are worth more than 2's and 3 quarters of the team can usually hit uncontested 3's. Even JV is able to hit 3s when given an open look.
