Rushing the court is like baking a birthday cake.
You need the proper ingredients, climate and timing to do this thing right.
Not enough people in your court-rush? That's like running out of flour. You told everyone you were making a cake and showed up with a birthday muffin.
Is the win a ridiculous upset? If not, you're baking with match sticks. You need a victory over a top-ranked team to generate the heat necessary for a rush.
Most important of all is timing. If someone in the crowd has time to ask, "Are we going to rush?"—nope. That's like blowing out the candles a day early. You're doing it wrong and getting ahead of yourself.
