Also a matter of talent.

MM's teams/offense struggles more when the other team also has top players and they play a pushy, in your face defense. What team wouldn't struggle in that sort of situation? Love them or hate them Geno and Waltz both preach aggressive defense and at least at the moment have great players to challenge ND.

I think the reason why this team looks so good on the break is that is what they are seeing in game situations no matter the opponent. This team is lethal off a steal or a quick clean rebound because that is what they see game in and game out. Even in games where they see tough, aggressive defenses, they seldom see teams that have the athletes to keep up with them, so they can break them down or just continue to feast on the breaks.
