    Yes agree was a difficult game to watch at times.

    Both teams have in-circle defenders that work intuitively together while there was a lot of 1-on-1 midcourt defence. Combined with a lack of dynamic attacking play (using ball speed), this created some messy passages through the court. I also think Jackson is the perfect defender for Bird – Bird’s height encourages high lobs but Bird’s (relative) lack of elevation made for some easy pickings for Jackson. Also, both teams are missing their best attacking shooters. I normally love defensive games but this wasn’t one of them.
