Maurice Cheeks Trying to Help Jennings with Running the Offense

I was reading an article on MLive about how Maurice Cheeks has finally started to coach. According to David Mayo: "For an hour after Saturday's practice, Detroit Pistons coach Maurice Cheeks and point guard Brandon Jennings holed up in video study. Andre Drummond dropped by to sponge information too, but it clearly was a moment for a former championship point guard to try seeing the game through the eyes of the point guard he now coaches, one day after a near-meltdown in the fourth quarter of a 103-99 victory over Brooklyn. A day later, Cheeks still was confronting the all-too-frequent lack of offensive flow in fourth quarters, when the Pistons' philosophy is to use Rodney Stuckey and Jennings as centerpieces. The Pistons' minus-2.2 fourth-quarter scoring margin is the NBA's second-worst, often because of structural breakdowns which don't show until late in games." It's nice to see Maurice Cheeks finally trying to correct some of these 4th quarter issues and maybe cutback on some of the Pistons' 4th quarter collapses we've come to get used to. Another interesting thing in the article was about how Josh Smith is trying to learn the ways that Kyle Singler moves around the court and cuts to the basket as a small forward, so at least he is trying.

Here is a link to the article if you are interested:
