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.”

James has been slowed since spraining his ankle in practice on Sept. 27. The three-time NBA champion sat out the Cavaliers’ first three exhibition games before making his debut last week against Chicago. He played 30 minutes but may have aggravated his ankle while making a spin move in the loss.
