Jokic is having another beast performance. 35,11,4 on 14-21 shooting.

He's getting absolutely no help though.

Lee passed up a 3 in the final secs of the Knicks game after the game he said Wiz assistant coach was in the floor and yelling like he closing out on lee. Lee seemed to think a defender was closing so he passed on the shot. Weird

Knicks got screwed hard.... also watching this prime time game... Jordan is putting towns over his knee... towns defense is just so poopoo... I think its the wiggings effect honestly... much like porz they are getting very little defensive help around them and its killing them. Towns defense needs to be better. His offense is ****ing :drool: though.

The play with coach is just weird. The problem is that it's almost impossible to stay off the floor. Just move bench back two feet you greedy bastards. The play I didn't like was Walls break away dunk. He double dribbled. That's grade school **** and a call they will never make.

Left knee contusion for Embiid but able to return.

He's also at 13 points, 7 boards, 5 assists, 4 blocks so far with 3 minutes left in the 3rd. One more block gets him a 4x5.

5X5 with the turnovers ; )

That is one area he really needs to improve. Can't be averaging 5+ turnovers a game as a center, especially with mediocre to subpar playmaking ability (for others). He's just got to stop watching Jokic and real in his PG aspirations a bit.

He'll get there. He's only in his 5th year of not being hurt and playing basketball so he's still very very raw. There's also been a few passes that have hit teammates hands and gone OB or got taken away lately. Of those 5 TO tonight, I would say about 2 are really 100% on him today.

Part of passing is knowing your teammates and what passes they're capable of handling.

From the games I watch his TO's are mostly a product of trying to do a little too much through his double teams and also attempting cross-court passes that frankly are just over his head at this point. Not watching tonight's game though, on the Dubs/Rox.

He's the new AI for us. He wants to give his heart, soul, and body to the city. He slipped twice in the exact same spot after landing solidly, so I suspect there's something with the floor in that area.

The Bucks are paying Plumlee 12 mill/yr to play 8mpg. Given age, contract length and injury history, Noah, Mozgov, and Deng are worse. Crabbe with his trade kicker is worse. Evan Turner's contract is terrible too. I could probably name more.

Biyombo struggling this season does not negate what he did last season. He's on a new team and dealt with various injuries. He's not the league's worst contract.

You should recognize what we did at the end there. It's a common Spurs go to in a pacing scenario. Top screen, dive, ball handler curls, cross key pass.

I figured they'd come out firing against those guys, (sans Westbrook) considering they'd lost to Cavs/Rockets already. Even from last yr, they seem to play at a higher level when they play against a team who beat them already.

Cavs haven't been in the best of shape of late. Okc sucks and rwb ia overwhelmed against such an overloaded team. His mvp credentials have nothing to lose by losing this kind of game. Houston is i guess a good win but i have a subjective take About them that i wouldn't bother you with. In other words, gs is living up to it's enormous talent edge. Trust me, they aren't measured by the regular season no mo.

When the team who shoots the most 3's faces the team with the best 3pt defense. Rockets now 4-24 from three.

The Rockets missed some wide open ones too, though. Anderson has been out cold all week and couldn't go for more than a few minutes and Gordon hasn't been able to hit the side of a barn the last few games. They're streaky and in a slump.


In saying that, this game basically happened the way I thought it would*. After matching blow for blow last month in GS and besting them, I knew the Warriors would come out with a vengeance.


*Figured Green or ZaZa would goon it up some way and they didn't, so kudos to them not being complete *******s tonight. A rarity these days.

SPAK would sweep the Bucks.

I'd expect GOAT to be somewhat consistent in a playoff series (though I see a LOT of turnovers and lower FG%) but all the little bum roleplayers for the Bucks would crap the bucket in the playoffs. Henson and Snell and Terry and Brogdon. There's a reason why SPAK has dominated several teams in the East in the playoffs despite losing the regular season series to them.

Next year or the year after might be your year, bud. Let the big boys play the game.

Giannis on SPAK, Broggy on Kyrie (would be ROTY if Oden Jr. wasn't on the senior circuit and eligible for ROTY), and Henson on Love.

I like our chances. We can do to SPAK what GSW did. Not a doubt in my mind. Bucks in 4.
