    If you have to ask why, then you need to watch more sports.

    So, golf and bowling are not sports?

    I was hoping you could give an actual reason instead of just repeating a cliche. I think good offense beats good defense in basketball, although I think it's actually more complicated than just offense vs defense.

    Sometimes......but for the most part, teams with the best defense, and some offense to compliment it, to me win the most. The crux of this thread is about that very same thing. Our offense hasn't been stellar the last couple of weeks....but our defense has.

    I mean...Seattle didn't win the Super Bowl with their offense did they?

    ...and if you sorted out our (and everyone else's) fast-break possessions, I bet we would be slightly on the slow side of average since we do a good job of making multiple passes to look for a quality shot on most of our possessions.

    I think it's true that one of our strengths is we can play well at different paces. The bottom line is to get better quality (and more) shot opportunities than your opponent. I think we do that pretty much every game, but then the variable of shooting (how well you are shooting and how well your opponent is shooting) looms large over everything. Coaches don't like to "go there" however, because shooting is not a very controllable factor.

    Not that you were looking for a serious reply...

    The course provides the defense in golf, often coupled with weather. Watching either one of the opens (especially if the weather gets involved) will bolster the argument that defense often wins.

    You can play defensively as well, but it's not much of a way to win championships.
