hich means Nova had at 7 guards make that 8 as Bridges was a G/F They had at least 3-4 points.
I asked a ref if he could give me a technical foul for thinking bad things about him. He said, of course not. I said, well, I think you stink. And he gave me a technical. You can't trust em.

If the team is loaded with guards, that depth opens the door to full court pressure or at least half court traps to bolster the defense!

It comes down to the type of team they want to be. Having a bunch of guards like Nova doesn't make you Nova. Nova had 5 guys on the court who all shoot the 3 better than any returning guard X has coming back. Naji, Scruggs, and Goodin are very good players but none of them are 3 point threats. Nova can spread the court and force you to play permitter defense opening the middle if they need to drive or post. Brunson was able to post so much because you had to guard the other four players. If X is looking to play a bunch of guards, they need be able to shoot well from deep. Nova's biggest issue was supposedly interior defense. While it was probably an area where they weren't as good, it didn't matter because they were trading 3 for 2s and built big leads.
