Deception play - foul Noah


In the last 2 minutes, when we were up by 4 and ripe for Derrick Rose's heroics, I would have:

 

1.) On defense = put Darren on Noah, Roy on Boozer, Tyler on Deng, Danny on Korver, and Paul on Rose.

This would confuse Rose for a while, and chances are he'll recognize the crazy mismatch that Noah has and put Noah on the post.

Once Noah gets the ball, foul him hard and make him shoot freethrows. 

- There's a good chance that he'll split.
- With Noah taking the free throws, we get good rebounding position.
- Takes Rose out of his rhythm.
- Spares us from being carved up by Rose once he drives in.

 

Of course, this is easier said in hindsight...
