Nets’ Coach Prefers Plumlee Down in the Paint

“They leave me open 15 feet and in, I’m taking the shot,” (Mason) Plumlee said Sunday. “In preseason, I didn’t get many. But hey, they will be there, and a lot of that, too, is just figuring out the offense and when to find guys — what passes I’m looking for. But it’ll be there.”

Maybe so, but there could be someone delivering special instructions not long after the 6-11 second-year pro fires one from the perimeter.

“I’d rather for him to never shoot a jump shot,” coach Lionel Hollins said. “I want him to be more comfortable in the post making moves. He has good footwork, he’s quick, jumps well and has a nice jump hook with his right and left hand. I’d like him just to be more confident in going to that and making that his basic go-to move.”
