 Guard Denver’s Perimeter Players

Quite simply, the perimeter players haven’t been doing a satisfactory job on the defensive end.

Ty Lawson is a difficult assignment because he’s so fast, but that doesn’t mean that he should blow by you on every play. He seemed to walk through every defender that was put on him.

It’s also unacceptable that players like Andre Iguodala and Corey Brewer are either left wide open from beyond the arc, or are allowed to drive through the lane unchallenged.

The perimeter defense has got to step up. It’s become absolutely terrible to watch.
