Steve Nash opened up about the offensive tactics of the Brooklyn Nets in the 2020/21 NBA season.
Nash said the Nets will play very fast on offense and will have similarities to the seven second or less Phoenix Suns (Nash was the leader of that team).
“We want to play an uptempo style. We want to push the ball in transition and play in the open court, and in the half-court we want to make quick decisions, space the floor, take advantage of our playmaking and shooting.
We have some centers that are vertical threats, so we can really put pressure on people above the rim, but also stretch them and make the court big and difficult to cover.
I definitely think there’ll be similarities (to the seven seconds or less Suns). But I also think clearly the way we played in Phoenix is very common in today’s game,” Nash, the new head coach of Brooklyn, told reporters, via CLNS Media.
The Nets are expected to be title contenders this season, with Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving back to the lineup.
