No OG for the Raptors as well. This game all of a sudden doesn't mean much.

His quad injury came from overuse. So it makes sense they are being careful. It's something he's went thru before iirc

Pacers, 76ers, Heat, Knicks, GSW, Bucks, Lakers, Spurs, Nuggets.

I vote for the Bucks, not because I'm a Buck myself, or because I think they have the better team, but rather because I think that the Bucks will want this game more for psychological reasons, as to have the team believe that they can beat the best out there and really maximise the confidence in the roster.

Even without Giannis playing?

It certainly makes it far more difficult, but the confidence will be off the roof if they can win this without Giannis...

I expect Ilyasova to start and Wood to have significant time too... IMO, there will be no "3 towers on the floor" tactics from coach Bud tonight, it will be extra time for Ilyasova + Good minitutes for Wood + extra minutes for Snell playing SF that will make up for Giannis minutes and then some more minitutes to the rookie Divicenzo, taken from Snell's internal rotation minutes from the luck of playing SG...

If the above players can keep the defense as if Giannis was there and score extra points the total of which will be 8 less than Giannis, then they still have a chance...

EDIT: I exprect the Bucks to play like "mad dogs" tonight, being psychologicaly "doped" by their coach... Giannis not playing might have been an intentional move from the coach, although he could have him...

I assume you don't watch them like I do. The changes from the start of last season are significant. 1 new starter, and McGee, West, Young, Casspi, and McCaw all gone from the bench. Kerr is trying to figure out how to use them.

luke needs to stop with this run n gun offense. IDC if we struggle to score 100 but play a different style where we're not giving up 125+ per game. It's clearly working against us.
MIN had some open looks too.....Lakers were lucky not to have gotten blown out late after the Wolves went up 9. I just think that without somewhat consistent shooting, you're right, run 'n gun offense isn't the most ideal way for this roster to play in today's NBA.

Nothingís changed though, he still play with a bunch of bad defenders and they made Ingram guard Butler from what I saw. LeBron just isnít going to play D until the playoffs if they make it.

yea and it was smart last year but the west is deeper... he isnt going to be able to get away with it this year... he doesnt need to be an all world defender but he at least has to try... outside of ball/mcgee and rondo nobody defends.

I assume you don't watch them like I do. The changes from the start of last season are significant. 1 new starter, and McGee, West, Young, Casspi, and McCaw all gone from the bench. Kerr is trying to figure out how to use them.

********. West, Young, Casspi, McCaw missing arenít the same as All Defensive studs like Green/Durant/Klay. And theyíre still there. Livingston and Curry arenít shabby and theyíre still there and how much was McGee playing for the Warriors last year? Again, it doesnít matter because he was no Green/Durant/Klay for them.

81 first half points against that team full of defensive studs. Then they put up 92 first half points against a bunch of no defensive playing scrubs and people are fawning.

Fultz is a bust. He can ďmaybeĒ salvage a NBA career and be a Eddie House or and best a Mike Miller but thatís it. Nothing close to a #1, especially when that draft has the ďtruthĒ Jayson Tatum going #3. Tatum is always going drive his stock down unless Fulton can deliver in the playoffs. Only then can he escape his draft position.

da **** how can he be a bust like 30 games into his career?

He definitely isn't a bust yet but saying he is 30 games into his career isn't exactly honest either. He is in year 2. If i were the Sixers I would be very concerned. With no jump shot he simply doesn't fit next to Simmons who'll likely never be much of a shooter. The Sixers have top tier talent right now. Fultz is not a great fit next to that talent and is not good enough at basketball at this point for his talent to trump fit. Imagine you could replace him with versatile shooting wing. You could go traditional with your offense running through Big Joel who would have more space in the post or could go small and play Simmons like a point center and just run/shoot people off the court. Simmons, Dario, Tatum/Danny Green type, Cov, Reddick. Fultz isn't bust and I don't think he should be seen as one for another couple years but with the way the Sixers are handling things starting him at PG he better develop pretty fast

some of you are ridiculously hard on Fultz, if he doesnt continue to improve during the season then we can call him a bust or not a fit next to embiid simmons, but come on right now hes looking solid and gaining more and more confidence

well he isnt the starting PG, Ben Simmons is

is there concern? for sure. hes got to get better, and hes got to get more consistent. But its 7 games into the season and its not like he looks terrible. He looks better last night than he did game 1 vs Boston. Let him get more comfortable, let him get more of a rythm. He did miss an entire year of basketball let him get to his groove

if he was around 25% from 3 and looks shot, I would have HUGE concern, but I have little concern right now with Fultz. At the very worst, hes an active defender who can drive to the rim. Yea I know thats not what you want from a #1 pick and if he becomes his worst, he deserves criticism but man its 7 games lol

Itís a year and 7 games. He did not miss a year of basketball. He was sat down. If he tore his Achilles itíd be different. If anyone guarded him and didnít only take that shot when he was most comfortable his % would be awful. I watch 2 and half Sixers games so far and if anyone defended me the way they checked Fultz Iíd score every play. I donít know if he will get there and he very well might (he was a top pick for a reason) but right now he ainít there and is only on the floor bc of his draft position

congrats on that world series. i hate you guys. making new york sports look garbage

gracias senior was super sweet


Itís a year and 7 games. He did not miss a year of basketball. He was sat down. If he tore his Achilles itíd be different.

he didnt really play tho lol idk what the hell the yips/shoulder was last year but he basically didnt play at all last year. I know he played like maybe 10 games at the end of the season, but something happened to him and he basically didnt play the entire season.

they guards Fultz similar to Simmons, give them all the room in the world to shoot. The difference is Fultz is willing to shoot and shown he has room for improvement and consistency in the J. Ben flat out just refuses to shoot. If he was flat out refusing to shoot at the rate Ben does, I would be a hell of a lot more concerned


but if i rank the how concerned am I about Markelle Fultz on a 1 to 10 scale, I would be at a 3

The same way Embiid was a bust 2 years into his career.

Yea we should have def traded him for 2 2nds like several unnamed posters said :laugh:

as for the other topic... all the talk today is about the lakers and how lonzo ball is their worst player this year... and you people wonder why i hate people that dont understand defense or pay any attention to defense... the only time the lakers ****ing play defense is when ball/mcgee are on the floor and all people are talking about today is how bad ball is and how he has the worst plus/minus on the lakers and how they need to trade him and get a shooting PG etc etc etc.......... DEFENSE ****ING MATTERS Holy ****.

I hate arguing for ball but the dude has been a defensive stud so far.

When McGee isn't on the court and LeBron is, Lakers have two players (bench player replacing Mcgee and leBron) who don't play defense. Lakers need a backup Center who can protect the rim badly.
