Tyronn Lue quickly became known as one of the smartest head coaches in the NBA. Lue was the former assistant coach behind Doc Rivers.

Luka Doncic, his stepback 3s, and the Dallas Mavericks were torching them. They had no answer. Their centers were being taken out beyond the 3-point line and attacked. When that wasn’t happening, the Mavericks were rotating the ball around the perimeter and going at other perceived mismatches.

Clippers coach Tyronn Lue is often at his best in his 'happy place' of the NBA's postseason. Colleagues believe he's underrated. Here's a look at why.
There’s been a lot of narratives out there lately with what has gone on the past couple years, do you feel like you have something to prove this postseason in Philly? James Harden: No, I don’t. I don’t. For me personally, I always want to go out there and play well and contribute in whatever way I need to contribute but for me, it’s going out there and playing my game, trying to help my team win. I don’t feel any pressure, I don’t feel any of that. So when you see people like Ty Lue comment that you wouldn’t be a Top 10 scorer without free throws, do you just laugh at stuff like that? James Harden: I don’t even pay attention to it. Free throws are a part of the game. You look at who leads the league, Joel and Giannis, what about if you take away their free throws? I don’t understand what that comment meant. Free throws are a part of the game. It’s on the defense to have discipline and not foul. That’s what coaches should be teaching their players. For me I don’t pay attention to it, I just try to go out there and make an impact on the game in a positive way every night.
