The offense of the 2012-13 Duke Blue Devils was very impressive. According to ESPN.com, the team ranked sixth in the country in scoring at 78.3 points per game while shooting 47.2 percent from the field.
Duke had five scorers average in double figures, and when Ryan Kelly was healthy, the team had the ability to score from anywhere on the court.
When Kelly was injured, the offense was still effective but occasionally struggled with spacing because of defenses being able to clog the lane against Mason Plumlee.
The offense next season will likely look very different and be more perimeter-oriented. The guards and wings are tremendously talented, but the biggest question mark will be how Duke handles the paint. Marshall Plumlee has yet to show any reason for optimism, and putting Amile Jefferson against opposing centers would be a big adjustment for him.
Look for Mike Krzyzewski to feature a lineup full of players with tremendous athleticism, which could mean that Duke will try to push the tempo against opponents.
It may not be as efficient, but next year's team has the potential to be much more explosive.
