On Second Thought: KC’s “15 Minutes or Less” offense

In soccer, as with most sports, patterns indicate tendencies and game plans. Part of my role analyzing the team is to search for patterns. There were plenty of great things to take away form the Los Angeles game. By beating the league-leading Galaxy 2-0, the Wizards kept their playoff hopes alive and continued their torrid form. But, if you’re hunting patterns, there was something far more interesting: It was the seventh time this season they won when they scored the first goal. (The team has won 7 games all season. Go sick with that math geeks.) Scoring early is a beautiful thing. And, the way the Wizards have done it recently, reminds me a lot of the Phoenix Suns.
