Request Title: Additional settings for late game
We have one setting for "Close and within 3" ... I realize that this is a saying that we have a one possession game and there are less than 12:30 on the clock, so it's a wide band.
That said, if there is, say, 1 minute to play and I'm up 3 ... I'm looking at a very different strategy than if there is 1 minute to play and I'm down 3. In one case I'm looking to take off the pressure, just play solid half-court defense - I have the lead and I don't want to give up an easy shot. In the other case, I'm desperate to get a turnover.
I'd like to see this divided into two: Late & Up 3 or less. Late & tied or behind by 3 or less.

Coaches In Favor of Change: Stephen Thompson, John Henry
Coaches Opposed to Change: none
Stephen Thompson: No doubt there could be infinite settings. I just think that late and up 3 versus late and down 3 are so foundationally different as to warrant different settings.
John Henry: Current Settings
Late and Ahead.
Late and Within 3,
Late and Behind,
I would like to see this a bit more defined for late game situations something like this...
Early - Would be 1st quarter until last 4 minutes of 2nd half unless blowout settings kick in.
These settings then kick in at the 4 minute to go mark. I am not sold on 4 minutes, just about the time in the game teams get a higher sense of urgency as the clock is winding down and the final TV timeout occurs.
Late and Ahead more than 3,
Late and Ahead 3 or less,
Late and Behind more than 3,
Late and Behind 3 or less
Finally these would stay the same as today
Status: In Work (last updated Jan 10 22:26:45 2019
Priority: Under Discussion
Clearly there could be a near infinite combinations of situations. Would like feedback from coaches on what they would like to see differently that most improves flexibility while most making the game better.
