"2020 NBA Bubble Eastern and Western Conference Finals"


          

Heat vs Celtics ( Heat are up 1-0 )

Nuggets vs Lakers ( 0-0)


I’m rolling with the Heat, and , of course, I’m rolling against the Lakers.

i didnt see myself rooting for the heat but here i am. i think celtics vs heat goes to 7. heat take it.

i have to say im really not familiar with denver. cant underestimate them but i think the lakers do take it fairly easily. as they have shown denver always has the chance to claw back in but i dont think it will happen this time. 4-1

i think the heat scare the lakers in the first couple of games but lakers win in 5 or 6.

i do plan to watch as much as possible from here on out.

I genuinely like so many players on BOTH teams...ugh

Lakers in 6...Murray will have one go off game...and Denver will get a second, because they're just a good team. Lakers will just be too much, in the end. We have yet to see the full freshness of Bron's Covid Legs.

...cleaned up my act, made a few violent songs...but, they wack like Glen Rice with New Balance on - Sean Price

>I genuinely like so many players on BOTH teams...ugh

obviously I love JT and I love Smart but as a Laker fan its hard to ever root for the Celtics plus I'm wary of how their going to try to crown Brad Stevens if this team gets to the Finals.

In the West I love the matchups for the Lakers, who are they going to put on Bron? Millsap? Grant? and Jokic trying to guard AD? I think AD can give him problems defensively. I think we can run different guys at Murray like we did with Harden.

like i can't imagine Murray or Jokic pulling off that G7 performance in Staples. but maybe now players will come out thinking no matter where you are, it's just hoops. go do your thing.

No hustle

I’m watching the low level and dude has been on the same side of the court for the whole second half on offense. No movement at all.

TBH the fact that you're even a mod here fits squarely within Jag's narrative of OK-sanctioned aggression, bullying, and toxicity. *shrug*

He is a rookie, and rookies don’t have the experience to deal with the pressures of
The playoffs. Spo plays him as needed. And he prefers dragon in the second half to close the show.

They can’t really hang in man-to-man with Boston’s perimeter weapons. Zone is a definite game changer for them. Brilliant coaching by Spo.

It really says a lot about Stevens. He's watched this defense for five straight games and hasn't done anything.

Doesn’t look to score or do star shit ...just looks to make the right basketball play
on every possession and takes over as needed

That’s hard to fock with.

And that zone is brutal. And the shooting.

Almost Everyone can shoot on that team...they are not streaky.

It’s not like Boston isn’t good ...they were up by like 17 points!

In response to Reply # 38


          

It’s kinda bullshit though. It was banned before 2010 and all the greats played straight up defense.Without zones, raptors don’t get A ring and would the heat even be here?

Celtics were killing them, so Spo switched to a zone out of desperation and that shit just happened to work.

The reason why zones are used in grammar school ,high school and college is because kids are not totally developed yet to play man to man.

I’m glad because I got the heat....but I still feel some kind of way about zone defenses.

on the surface the question sounds kind of crazy but I think it's closer than people think.

them intangibles (and great defense) go a long way in the playoffs. at least when compared to relying on stepback threes and and one's (and little defense).

also, player movement is really important when teams lock in on defense in the playoffs. harden quite literally does not move one foot after he gives up the ball.

if anything...these playoffs more than any other...has exposed exactly who teams really are.

its as close to an 'everything being equal' situation as you can get.

same venues, same practice time, same rules for everyone.

no hiding behind home crowds, schedule splits, extra days off, flight times, etc.

just straight up gotta face the same team every other day and man up.

Naw it gets a asterisk.


Not being able to have your normal nutrition, all day basketball, being in the bubble 24/7, that’s a problem. Taking a break from basketball allows you to actually concentrate on basketball. You get to relax. However ,some people thrive from that
concentrated, dorm existence. Some people don’t.

Keep in mind a lot of players didn’t want to be there, and some arrived late.

This isn’t a normal surroundings.

And I personally feel a lot of them didn’t and don’t give a fock.

However the teams that are able to concentrate and have veteran leaders do have an advantage.

Always felt this way in college too. The “zone is for cowards” stuff is the same as the “hack-a-Shaq is for cowards” stuff. Make your shots and they won’t do those things. You’re a professional basketball team. Can’t make shots? No sympathy.

And Brad’s refusal to adjust is so embarrassing. Straight up bad coaching.

He’s young and this is his first taste of the ECF...and a squad full of mostly youngins. Plus that hard ass series against raptors already proved that he is a good coach.

He just has to take his lumps just like spo did.

Spo is a championship veteran with dragic, jimmy and crowder ...that’s some serious ass experience and toughness.

Celtics just aren’t there yet.

Forgot about those finals against the Cavs... because Cavs would go to the finals every year. It wasn’t memorable, because lebron dominated the east during those years. A lot of those games I don’t remember to be honest with you.

It’s not an excuse. Smart is 26, Brown and Tatum are 22-23. Kemba doesn’t have a lot of playoff experience from playing with the Hornets for so many years. They don’t have Hayward. I mean they are right where they need to be.

Look at how many times Jordan came up short in the playoffs, got his first ring at 28. Shit ain’t easy, and all of these games are close, and he is losing against a system defense which isn’t easy to beat ....ask Giannis. We all know man to man Celtics are clearly the better team. They were up by 17 points.

Dude is a good ass coach. It’s just gong to take more time, development and adjustments. He gets another 2 years, if they lose , to figure it out.

We just want to fry heads every time someone loses.

But that’s the point. Zone isn’t a pro level defense, which is why it used to be banned.
The whole purpose of being a NBA player is playing on both sides of the ball, playing
Offense and Defense.

So ,since players can’t play on both sides of the ball, or stop the other team, let’s just all sit in the box.

It’s equivalent to parking the bus in soccer.

it was played more in the paint. the middle would get clogged. zone and hand checking made for more defensive games, which a lot of folks find harder to watch.

today, outside shooting is more prevalent. good outside shooting will nullify zone, but also less consistent.

Y'all buy those labels, I was born supreme

That's one of those organizations that is clearly beastly at finding ways to maximize the talent of young players. If Duncan ends up in, say, Sacramento, does he become remotely the same player?

That said, yes, Cleveland is stupid and has been stupid for some time. Between Cleveland's front office and the massive culture change between dealing with non-five-star college kids and millionaires who've been stars their entire lives, Beilein honestly probably should've known better.

but its pretty apparent that he came in as a full grown adult with a floor above sea level. raising that ceiling to a cold-blooded Klay was definitely all Miami.

well, yeah. and that hurts to admit. but when they are telling you all the right things, and you're the most ethical guy in a dirty game...i imagine they pushed all the right buttons in the right sequence.

although i would posit that those kids were stars *as kids*. there are no stars when your team is that putrid.

and also.. regarding Belein, I was all in, it's certain veteran players that were not (allegedly)

we'll see what happens under BIckerstaff. KPJ was playing way more in his lane after the switch

77. "The way L.A. has approached game 1s thus far is fascinating"
In response to Reply # 0
Fri Sep-18-20 07:44 PM by Vex_id

          

Dropped both game 1s (and LeBron has actually dropped quite a few Game 1s in recent years - but has then gone on to win the series).

It reminds me of how Floyd Mayweather approached big prize fights. He would often use the first round to feel out his opponent, study, and would even concede the first round to the opponent as he felt out the rhythm, spacing & timing. Then, he'd adjust on the fly and absolutely dominate the middle and late rounds, completely solving the puzzle.

Will be interesting to see if this trend continues tonight for the Lakers and LeBron - or if they get off to a good start for the first time during this playoff run.

Jokic picked up like 2 quick fouls, and then back to back foul turnovers for Denver.

Malone is heated. Probably get ejected before the game is. It’s just a matter of time before it happens.

If you’re going to let him just bull his way to the paint, and push guys out the
Way and call a defensive foul, might as well not even have this series.

Players are playing him physical like he is playing them physical. Better off just letting it be a non-call.


First quarter none of those calls are made, and they are all
Playing, but now you get the whistles out ...which appears to be the only way to slow Denver down.

Their whole squad is going to foul out if it stays like this....

Milsap, Jokic, Murray had to sit the entire 2nd quarter ...thats their scoring right there

..Jokic, Milsap, & Murray with 3 fouls a piece.

Dwight Howard being the smart troll, aggressive on both ends of the floor.

Should be interesting to see how Bron & AD pace the 2nd half.

95. "Malone is going to have to figure "
In response to Reply # 0


          

out how to keep his stars on the floor.

Denver won the first quarter, and then the lakers went on a 17-1 run in the 2nd quarter and that was pretty much ball game.

During that stretch Milsap,Murray and jokic picked up 3 fouls a piece, so all of denver’s
scoring was on the bench for the rest of the half. And it forced the team to defend less aggressively.

Malone is going to have to solve that if he can. As much as I hate zone, might as well play it to keep players out of foul trouble.

Like Melanism stated, the calls are going to be the difference in this series.

So Millsap and Jokic-- any Denver interior player, really-- are gonna stay in foul trouble. Unless they zone or some shit.

In response to Reply # 0


          

C’a were up by 20 again, and they ate that shit up in the 4th quarter. They had to play perfect, but they got sloppy down the stretch, and it almost cost them

For some reason the heat barely played zone ....made no sense. Very confusing.

If the C's didn't build that lead, it would be 3-0. And Hayward is back so everyone (Tatum, Brown, Smart) is going to play harder to stay on the floor.

I still pick them to go the NBA finals. They are a team that reminds me of the Warriors. That they could afford to send Justise packing when they did told me a lot.

You have Duncan Robinson being "Klay" and Tyler Herro who is special.
Bam who is better than Donkeylips.
And Jimmy just coming in and wrecking shit.

Celtics got their hands full.

2020 is truly bizarre

Yes, I'm mad. Let's move on.
