This Warriors team is nasty. Obviously the stars are older but this rota...
May 02nd 2022

      let's compare the cast
May 02nd 2022

                I meant in the finals*
May 02nd 2022
55
                     my argument isnt that they are playing better
May 02nd 2022
56
           new squad more talented, less savvy.
May 02nd 2022
68
      I prefer the diversity
May 02nd 2022

May 03rd 2022
76
I legit meant to pose the question to the group…
May 03rd 2022
77
He won’t get fried. He’s already over cooked and burnt to a crisp

May 03rd 2022

      lol
May 03rd 2022
132
If Memphis goes down 2-0 at home it might be a sweep
May 03rd 2022
128
these 1st 2 games are about the best memphis could hope for.
May 03rd 2022
131
minnesota prolly made memphis look better than they really are.
May 03rd 2022
133

May 03rd 2022
134
Another dumb ass play by GSW
May 03rd 2022
135
Otto Corner Jr is who we wanted Oubre to be
May 03rd 2022
136
warriors actually killing memphis around the rim.
May 03rd 2022
137
wiggins is the unsung hero of this series.
May 03rd 2022

      ^^^^^
May 03rd 2022
141
      I agree with this
May 03rd 2022

May 03rd 2022

May 03rd 2022
156

May 03rd 2022
146
Lmao
May 03rd 2022
148
Danny Fortson level fouler.
May 03rd 2022
154
Rough way to get your sixth foul lol
May 03rd 2022
147
Klay stunk it up tonight
May 03rd 2022
150
that foul on Draymond's offensive reb. re: Ja was such a shit call.
May 03rd 2022
151
Nah, Scott Foster made the call. It was legit.
May 03rd 2022
153
      ...Scott Foster.
May 03rd 2022
159
Memphis steals a win they had no business getting.
May 03rd 2022
155
Just think how much MEM could’ve won by if Ja hadn’t played!
May 03rd 2022
157
L-STAH! WHERE'S MY GODDAMN MONEY!?
May 03rd 2022
158
Why is it when Memphis lose you’re nowhere to be found.
May 03rd 2022
161
Both Boston and Memphis put on a show!
May 03rd 2022
160
memphis was supposed to dominate on the inside.
May 03rd 2022
162
Even more than the shooter, GSW really missing Klay the defender
May 03rd 2022
163
Fractured elbow for GPII.
May 03rd 2022
164
Kuminga gonna have to step up.
May 04th 2022
166
Devastating to lose our seven footer
May 04th 2022
172
Brooks should be out for game 3
May 03rd 2022
165
nah
May 04th 2022
168
The penalty cant be the same as draymonds
May 04th 2022
181
playoff basketball!
May 04th 2022
170
at the end of the day GS shot 18%(7 for 38) from 3...
May 04th 2022
167
Exactly. Warriors had a historically bad shooting night, Ja
May 04th 2022
178
Yeah because 18 TOs had nothing to do with it.
May 04th 2022
179
they played about as stupid as possible. dumb, unforced turnovers.
May 04th 2022
187
Looking forward to Dillon Brooks' reception in Oakland lol
May 04th 2022
169
LOL@Kerr calling Brooks dirty
May 04th 2022
171
Oh well. Stole one in their house
May 04th 2022
173
Brooks should be suspended for game 3
May 04th 2022
174
No. That would be excessive. Brooks doesn’t have a reputation
May 04th 2022
175
nah I want him out there
May 04th 2022
176
You know what?
May 04th 2022
180
For sure. His penalty cant be the same as draymonds
May 04th 2022

i was on the fence but im here now.
May 04th 2022
184
I don't even think intent matters when you whack a guy's head.
May 04th 2022
185
      its equal to or worse than grayson allens foul on alex caruso.
May 04th 2022
195
           Oh, if that foul was by Grayson and not Dillon Brooks...
May 04th 2022
197
                yeah sometimes intention isnt more important than lack of risk aversion.
May 04th 2022
202
                I once put my hands on a dude's back in transition at the Y.
May 05th 2022
203
                That’s the thing if GPII isn’t injured this whole thing is forgotten...
May 05th 2022

                     Both
May 05th 2022
210
                          ^^^
May 05th 2022

                               yeah...actions have consequences. i don't know if the league considers
May 05th 2022
227
                                    i never understood why people say the result doesnt matter.
May 05th 2022

I’m not sure what adjustments Kidd can make to
May 04th 2022

You really said this with a straight face?
May 05th 2022
214
      Brunson was playing at a high level before entering this
May 05th 2022
235
What happened to Duncan Robinson?
May 04th 2022
186
Good question
May 04th 2022
189
He’s absolute food for the other team’s offense when he’s in there...
May 04th 2022
193
A horrendous defensive liability in certain matchups.
May 04th 2022

      Nah, Max Strus took his minutes
May 05th 2022

That (presumably) Golden State matchup will be interesting.
May 04th 2022

No they don’t fuck them dudes, I’d rather see GS get another
May 05th 2022

LOL but i agree.

I… dunno wtf we do about Ayton and even McGee off the bench tbh

           I *really* wouldn't zone the Phoenix Suns, lol.
May 05th 2022
226
                Lol, Bridges would have 40 points on baseline cut dunks
May 05th 2022
228
                Yeah you're right
May 05th 2022
229
That’s the criteria for MVP
May 05th 2022
213
This is true of a decent amount of elite players, imo.
May 05th 2022
220
      You can’t exploit the Yella Mamba.
May 05th 2022
225
Brooks out for Game 3
May 05th 2022
223
a lot of people thought a 1 game suspension for grayson wasnt enough
May 05th 2022
231
They should fine him severely. IMO should be more than 1 game.
May 05th 2022
232
No brainer
May 06th 2022
238
gary payton ii out 3-5 weeks.
May 05th 2022
234
Luka is avg over 35 a game against PHX, so he is producing.
May 05th 2022
236
Brunson is not going to produce against "big" guards.
May 05th 2022
237
I think he's better than that, but I do think his talent has a ceiling.
May 06th 2022
242
shit someone tell that to the knicks.
May 06th 2022
243
      A non-All-Star seeking a max deal to lead a team to a first round exit?
May 06th 2022
244
It’s not hard to see why Brunson’s numbers are down.

I neither have, nor need, and ESA- but you really like to use mental health as the basis for your snark. It’s much worse to see your general take on mental health, i.e, the “lame mental health crutch”. framing of it.

the fact that you assume that I have one underscores your ignorance, as though anyone who calls your repugnant take in the subject for what it is must have one.

You’re the worst kind of backward ignorance- the sort who wears that ignorance with pride and arrogance.

Plenty of people are happy to be dog shit human beings though, so rock on with that I guess.

Hopefully you get educated and whatever spec of compassion and decency you have inside you claws it’s way out of the rest of that sewer you call a soul, and takes control.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

On one hand, fuck Boston

On the other, JT is a Kobe guy, so I want to see him win.

But then again, fuck Boston.

Giannis has a chance to add another major accomplishment to an already ridiculous resume at a relatively young age- and watching history in the making is ALWAYS a draw for me.

Also, fuck Boston.

All told, I’d rather see JT win a chip, but mainly because Kobe means that much to me personally, and I know he means a lot to JT. So I want to see him put his name into that level 1 pantheon.

Then, ideally, he leaves that shithole Boston for somewhere else. Lakers, ideally, but anywhere but Boston will suffice.

Of course, I also want to see Steph/Klay/Dre add another layer to their already significant legacy- and I still want to see CP3 get a chip.

Not aure which of those I want to see more.

39. "What Philly needs to do against the Heat sans Embid (ESPN+)"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

NBA playoffs 2022: Without Joel Embiid, here's what the Philadelphia 76ers must do against the Miami Heat

What does Joel Embiid's injury mean to the Philadelphia 76ers' chances of reaching the Eastern Conference finals for the first time since drafting Embiid in 2014 as the centerpiece of their rebuilding process?

On Friday, the Sixers announced that Embiid suffered an orbital fracture and a concussion during the late stages of Thursday's Game 6 win to close out the Toronto Raptors. Philadelphia did not offer a timetable for Embiid's return.

With Game 1 of the 76ers' conference semifinals matchup against the top-seeded Miami Heat set for Monday in Miami, Philly must prepare to play without Embiid, a finalist for the NBA's MVP award this season. Embiid was a strong candidate in part because he played a career-high 68 games this season, missing just four since a stint in the NBA's health and safety protocols in November.

Let's take a look at how the Sixers might adjust their offense, with James Harden set to play without Embiid for the first time since being traded to Philadelphia as well as how quickly Embiid might return. Can he resume a breakthrough campaign and go deeper in the playoffs than ever before?

How Philadelphia's attack must shift without Embiid

Embiid's durability this season makes it difficult to predict how the 76ers will play in his absence. Remarkably, Harden has yet to play without Embiid, having missed both games (including a seven-point home loss to the Heat in March) that Embiid sat out after the trade deadline.

It's hardly challenging to predict that Philadelphia's attack will be different stylistically. Embiid has been an enormous part of the team's offense; his 37% usage rate this season ranked 10th all-time since individual turnovers were tracked starting in 1977-78 (minimum 1,000 minutes) per Stathead.com. Given Embiid's unique ability as a scorer in the post and out of isolations, the Sixers can't shift those possessions to whoever replaces him in the lineup.

Instead, most of them will surely go to the perimeter trio of Harden, Tyrese Maxey and Tobias Harris. Harris boosted his scoring average per 36 minutes from 17.4 to 21.2 in nine games without Embiid this season, while Maxey's skyrocketed from 16.2 to 24.8.

After veterans Paul Millsap and DeAndre Jordan proved lacking as backups for Embiid, Philadelphia coach Doc Rivers embraced using energetic second-year big man Paul Reed in those minutes late in the regular season and against Toronto. Reed solidified non-Embiid lineups, though the Raptors still outscored the Sixers by seven points in 44 minutes with Embiid on the bench and Harden on the court during the first round.

Harden and Reed have developed pick-and-roll chemistry, and Reed will undoubtedly play a key role in Embiid's absence. Still, Philly's best strategy with Embiid out might be to go small and stretch the floor with Georges Niang as a center.

Admittedly, the 6-foot-7 Niang provides limited resistance at the rim. His 13 blocks this season were a career high. That's the reason Rivers all but abandoned using Niang at the 5 after experimenting with it early in the season; 72 of Niang's 91 minutes as the Sixers' center came in October and November, per analysis of lineup data from NBA Advanced Stats.

Philadelphia might need Niang's floor spacing to give Harden and Maxey the ability to get to the basket when they beat their defenders in this series. Miami opponents attempted a league-low 17.3 shots per game in the restricted area, according to Second Spectrum tracking, a measure of how aggressively the Heat have protected the rim.

The flip side of that strategy: Miami also gives up 3-pointers in bunches, as an NBA-high 46% of their opponents' shot attempts came from beyond the arc. Niang, a 40% career 3-point shooter who made a career-high 2.1 per game this season, can feast on those opportunities when his defenders help and make them think twice about crowding the paint.

Playing Niang at center might also be more palatable in this series because the Heat don't put much pressure on the rim on offense. Their own 18.2 shot attempts per game in the restricted area were fourth lowest in the NBA, per Second Spectrum.

Why Embiid's timetable is uncertain
Just how long Embiid might be out remains unclear. The timetable for orbital injuries often vary widely depending on the location and whether the bone is displaced. A handful of players who have suffered orbital injuries missed only a game or two, while others -- including Embiid in March 2018 with an identical injury that required surgery -- have been sidelined for an extended period.

The NBA on ESPN and the ESPN App

Friday, May 6
Heat at 76ers, Game 3 (7 p.m.)

Saturday, May 7
Celtics at Bucks, Game 3 (3:30 p.m., ABC)

All times Eastern

Embiid suffered the injury on March 28 of that year and missed the remaining eight games of the regular season as well as the first two of the 76ers' first-round series against Miami. He returned on April 19, 22 days later. Naturally, that kind of timetable would rule Embiid out for the entire series.

Unfortunately, serious orbital injuries are more common. Jeff Stotts of InStreetClothes.com noted that the average time missed due to an orbital injury during the regular season is about 10 games.

Of course, even if Philadelphia gets a break on the severity of the orbital fracture, Embiid's concussion is a serious concern in its own right. For Embiid to be able to return, he'll first have to clear concussion protocol.

As a result, the Sixers should prepare to play at least the first couple of games of this series without Embiid, as they did in 2018. Back then, Philadelphia was able to split the first two games at home using a smaller lineup before winning the next three games after Embiid returned to finish off the Heat.

This time around, the 76ers will have to start on the road, making the timing of Embiid's injury more difficult -- especially with Miami potentially affected by injuries to Jimmy Butler and Kyle Lowry at the start of this series. With Harden, the 76ers have enough offense to win without Embiid, particularly if they go small.

The bigger questions are whether Philadelphia can get enough stops without their defensive anchor -- and whether he's able to return at all this series.

The betting market doesn't seem optimistic about those answers. Before the Embiid news, the lines at Caesars Sportsbook (+150 for the Sixers, -180 for the Heat) implied a 38% chance of Philadelphia winning the series. The current line as of Friday night (+300 for the Sixers, -380 for the Heat) has cut that to 23%.

We'll have a better idea after Game 1 whether Philly can find the right answers.

would balance playing time between Steph, Klay and Poole I like how he started GPII to get another defender on the floor, Ja and Triple J still got theirs but the rest of the Grizzles were relatively quiet.

I should have clarified

16 5 and 4 and he had to guard LeBron


if Wiggins or Poole do that, AND manage to stop/slow down Giannis...then yea

I think it's a bit premature though to say they're playing better in the *2nd round*

its that the supporting cast is better

Even if you think iggy(then) was better than Wiggins (now) no one on those teams is coming close to poole.

Overall i think the supporting cast is better than those 2015-2016

In response to Reply # 52


  

          

however the core of steph, dray, klay (and iggy) is way more savvy than the assorted vets that the earlier squads have. so this incarnation is better. only caveat is size.

>2015
>Barnes <<< wiggins
>Iggy >>> current wiggins
>bogut
>Livingston
>Speights
>Barbosa

i liked that squad w/ exception of barnes who (to me, at the time) always seemed to be klanging wide open 3s in crunch time.

none of them is as dynamic a scoring threat as poole. i'll take young glove over anyone there except iggy as a perimeter defender.

>2016
>Barnes

ibid, re: barnes.

>
>2022

>Poole
>Looney
>Porter
>GpII

you forgot kuminga. he had some good minutes vs mem (even though he had a negative +/-. his energy and explosiveness can be game changing and he's a very good young, on ball defender. (gets lost off the ball sometimes).

>I'm having a hard time finding anyone on those earlier rosters
>better than Wiggins or Poole

rather, wiggins + poole + current iggy >>>> any combination of them other dudes + OG iggy.

and livingston was my guy. solid defender. fresh taper. and smoothest midrange in the game. reliable.

wigs has been a better defender, hits threes, and, of late, a better rebounder than livingston. gives another shooter to close out on and therefore spaces the floor.

peace & blessings,

in size that pre-KD squad had in terms of varying how they could defend in terms of not only size but speed as well over this current squad.

Offensively, this is a better team since there are more three point threats compared to the pre-KD squad. That's at least going off memory from back then.

He's doing ALL the little things to help us win games. We'll get 15-17 efficient buckets from a guy who plays really good defense, attacks the rim, and yes is even willing to do the dirty work. The polar opposite of the empty scorer/ medium efficiency player he was earlier in this career.

A perfect find by Myers. Wiggins was always going to excel in this type of role, and huge credit to Kerr for weaving him in so seamlessly into the squad.

also looked like Klay got a piece of Morant's layup: https://imgur.com/a/Ej97RmJ

https://theathletic.com/3289461/2022/05/02/warriors-grizzlies-game-1-film-breakdown/

Hollinger: Five key clips from Grizzlies-Warriors Game 1, and what they mean for Game 2


One marker of how well a team is defending the Grizzlies is to just look at the easy stuff: second-chance and fast-break points. That’s where Memphis does a big chunk of its damage, and it will be a focus all series.

However, there’s another one we don’t talk about as much: what I call the “Desmond Ratio.” The idea against Memphis is that you’ll pack the paint and live with semi-contested 3s from any player on the roster except Desmond Bane. If the Grizzlies take a lot of 3s and Bane has a small proportion of them, you’ve probably done your job.

Well, in this game, Golden State had a “Desmond Ratio” of 7.0: Memphis had 35 3-point attempts from players not named Bane and just five from Bane. Sure, Jaren Jackson Jr. got cooking, so Memphis did a bit more damage on those non-Bane 3s than you might expect (15-of-35, which is a 64.3 percent true shooting), but playing the long game, this is advantage Golden State.

Missing from those stats are all the times the Grizzlies drove into a packed paint or record-scratched out of promising possessions because the Warriors were daring poor-to-middling shooters to fire away. As our Fred Katz already noted, Morant took 11 3-pointers in part because the Warriors went under every screen and dared him. The horns sets where his defender hung out below both screens were particularly emphatic examples.

The above clip is a perfect example, a possession to nowhere where the Warriors dared both Morant and Kyle Anderson to shoot from distance (automatic fine if you go for Slo-Mo’s shot fake) and had zero fear whatsoever of Xavier Tillman doing anything on his roll. The Grizzlies ended up with a shot-clock violation after Morant drove into three waiting players on the reset.

Second quarter: Defending Steph Curry
One reason Memphis will regret losing this game is that the Grizzlies mostly did an outstanding job on Curry, using Brooks as the primary defender, switching most screens involving him (although trying very, very hard to keep Morant as far away from him as humanly possible) and harassing him into 24 points on 8-for-20 shooting.

The Grizzlies struggled more when they tried to put two on the ball, as Golden State got a four-on-three virtually every time but went away from that as soon as Tillman checked out. Even the shots Curry made were earned; stepback 3s off the dribble, drives into traffic and the like. Those plays where he scrambles around off the ball, gets a pin-in screen and emerges with a wide-open 3? Those weren’t really a thing in Game 1.

This clip above is a great example. The play above starts with De’Anthony Melton on Curry, but the Grizzlies switch a screen to put Anderson him, negating Curry’s curl. Curry retreats with a live dribble all the way to the opposite 3-point line, but Anderson harasses him the whole way and eventually pins him against the sideline. Curry regains his dribble when Anderson deflects the ball, but he drives right back into Melton, who blocks his floater.

Warriors fans will note that the primary trigger for a lot of Curry’s open 3s is a screen or pass from Green, who wasn’t around for the last 25 minutes. We’ll see if he can spring Curry more often in Game 2.

Third quarter: Poole party
Jordan Poole was the catalyst for both teams’ offenses at times, but his scoring and passing more than made up for the vulnerability at the defensive end in this one. In contrast to the Grizzlies’ rotation usage, which we’ll get to more in a minute, the Warriors played Poole 38 minutes off the bench, starting him in the second half after Green was ejected and only removing him for two very short breathers. Those 38 minutes are more than every Grizzlies player except Morant.

Poole finished with 31 points and made five of his 10 3-point attempts, including one where he got hit on the side of the head by Clarke with no call. (Another fine moment for this crew.) As sweet as the scoring was, however, the passing might have been even better. His development in this area isn’t getting as much attention, but it’s a pretty huge deal in terms of his overall value.

Poole finished with a team-high nine assists, and several were sweet dimes far above the pay grade of your typical get-’em-up bench scorer. To start the third, he dropped a perfect pass in between three Grizzlies to set up a Kevon Looney basket and then had the ping-ping-ping sequence in the clip above to get Curry one of his easiest looks of the day and an and-1 opportunity after Morant crashed into him.

That pass looks like the obvious play, but most guys on a heater like Poole are taking the first swing pass from Curry and letting it rip. Poole read Morant closing out on him, and perhaps that Tillman behind him had a chance to block his shot, and realized zipping it right back to Steph was the better play.

While we didn’t see much of the Megadeth lineup due to Green’s ejection, the pairing of Poole with Curry and Klay Thompson continues to show so much offensive promise that the Warriors may need to live with whatever defensive warts it brings. Whether he technically starts or comes off the bench seems secondary; either way, Poole has just been too good to keep off the court.

Fourth quarter: Grizzlies don’t stagger
Taylor Jenkins is going to regret a few things about this game: not pushing harder for a two-for-one or calling timeout when they got the ball back with 36 seconds left, not playing Jackson more in the first half (he finished with just 31 minutes and three fouls; he could have helped in that second quarter clip above, for instance) and not tightening the rotation further.

One of the biggest things he’ll likely regret, however, is not staggering the minutes of Morant and Bane better to keep more firepower on the court. Both players rested at the start of the fourth quarter, and it got ugly fast.

In a one-point game to start the fourth quarter, Memphis sent out a lineup of Tyus Jones/Brooks/John Konchar/Anderson/Clarke. That shooting-deficient group had a hopeless first possession in the clip above. With three non-shooters on the court and limited shot creation, they ran a split cut action with Anderson in the post to … get Brooks a tough 2?

Morant subbed in quickly, but that put even less shooting on the floor since he replaced Brooks. By the time Memphis got its best five back on the court, the Grizzlies were facing a 10-point deficit.

How can Memphis manage its bench units better to keep more shooting on the floor? Playing Konchar may be a luxury unless Bane is out there with him. Pulling Melton out of cold storage after two DNPs against Minnesota certainly helped; he was ghastly awful in that series (a PER of minus-4 in 47 minutes) but was a huge bench energizer all season. The Grizzlies didn’t have Ziaire Williams and Steven Adams available, but I’m not sure they would have made things any different.

The Grizzlies likely need to tilt the rotation toward even fewer Tillman minutes (like, zero, for instance) and more with Jackson playing the five; that risks fouls against most opponents, but the Warriors are so perimeter-heavy that it may not matter much against them. That takes them down to an eight-man rotation with a few scraps for Konchar/Williams in the ninth spot, but that’s the playoffs.

Fourth quarter: The Warriors win the board battle
Finally, let’s finish with the most amazing stat of the night: Golden State finished the game with a better offensive rebound rate than Memphis, yanking down 16 of a potential 47 misses. Memphis, of course, led the league in ORB rate during the season. Golden State … did not. The Warriors finished 18th in this category, and the Grizzlies were a respectable 10th on the defensive glass. Golden State also did this despite missing Green the entire second half and being forced into smaller arrangements that included getting Porter some run at center.

And yet, this might have actually been the reason the Warriors could rebound so well. While a few of their boards were just pure energy plays by Gary Payton II, several were the result of the Warriors’ shooting stretching the Grizzlies to their absolute limit, leaving Memphis chasing its tails on the glass. This was particularly true in the fourth quarter, when out of 16 potential rebounds the Warriors kept the ball seven times and should have had an eighth (the missed out of bounds call on Brooks).

The above sequence is probably the most telling one, even though Golden State ultimate didn’t score. Two 3-point misses by Thompson and Curry produce long rebounds that the Warriors are able to chase down, while the Grizzlies are scattered all over the court from trying to defend the initial action. Andrew Wiggins gets the first one when it bounces long and he’s the only player left on the weak side because two players chase Thompson, and the clip starts after he’s kicked the ball out to Curry. Once he gets up, he’s unattended under the basket while the Grizzlies scramble to chase Curry and Poole. (Although Morant might have tried blocking him out instead of just trying to out-leap him.)

Part of the benefit of Memphis’ switching is that the Grizzlies theoretically should be less prone to this, but the threat of Golden State’s shooting is such that even the best-laid plans end with two guys flailing out desperately at Curry or Thompson and the boards unattended. In retrospect, it’s shocking this team didn’t rebound at a higher rate in the regular season, so an interesting subplot will be whether this was a one-off fluke from some long rebounds going to the right places or whether it’s sustainable for the rest of the series. Certainly Payton, who had a team-high four offensive boards, could play a big role in this question. One can argue Adams returning could even the score here for Memphis, but it’s not clear how much he would play if the Grizzlies are committed to a switching scheme. Nonetheless, it was an underrated key to the Warriors stealing Game 1 and taking advantage in this series.

In response to Reply # 70


  

          

i guess i'm just speaking more to the EFFORT put in. Closing out on shooters, sprinting back on defense at key moments, etc. These are things you don't have to be an all world defender to know to do. Its effort.

I'm obviously a Warrior homer. But I've always observed Steph putting in the effort on that end. Even if he was getting taken advantage of. The effort has always been there.


And as I was saying above, the effort is the foundatino for a guy to improve. As Steph has over the course of his career. I don't ever see Luka doing that

In response to Reply # 82


          

He tore his hamstring to pieces for Brooklyn when he was out there
playing with a 2 degree hamstring. He couldn’t jump or sprint, and it hasn’t
been the same sense.

It’s clear as day his first step is gone because of it.

89. "its weird because he and Russ have been friends since high school..."
In response to Reply # 82


          

and played together the one season in Houston and Russ had a kind of similar sudden falloff.

Russ was always an erratic shooter but this past season he seemed to miss so many easy baskets at the rim that used to be dunks in previous years. He had actually struggled at the beginning of the previous season in Washington but came on strong in the 2nd half and a lot of his early season struggles were written off to injuries/covid but had similar struggles in LA. Like the saying goes "Father Time is undefeated" but its rare to see elite players fall off that quickly.

They are going to fock around and lose these series. Memphis simply doesn’t
make mistakes. We saw it when they played the wolves. Memphis didn’t play well,
but the wolves made all the stupid mistakes.

GSW are doing the same dumb shit. I mean damn


Poole is even worse than Curry...

Game 1: The Warriors had 26 second chance points, steals blocks and turnovers were essentially equal across the board and the home/away foul split was negligible.

Game 2 so far: Steals and turnovers are way more lopsided by Memphis hasn't turned any of that into points outside free throws which, still, is a negligible home/away difference with a live crowd.


Both these teams are playing fast and wild, it's just a stronger narrative with GSW because it's been going on for so long and a handful of would-be turnovers for MEM saw the GSW player lose control or step on the line in the process.


Just look at how the Warriors made that 10 point lead look stupid by cutting through and clowning on the MEM defense. There's no way you can argue Memphis is SMARTER than Golden State, more explosive sure.

What I’m saying is like what we saw with the Wolves...who were
the superior team, Memphis will steal wins.

This should be a blowout...but GSW is so stupid with the ball at times they
defeat themselves

And Tyrus Jones has the best assist/turnover ratio in the league...and
has been like that for the past 4 years

Jones- zero TOS
Morant:2
Melton:2

Curry: 5 TOS
Green : 4 TOs

They let you defeat yourself. They could easily be up 2-0 in the series.

If the warriors just simply protected the ball, they would have won by
at least 10 points.

Warriors keep focking around ...they will go home for good. They play some stupid
basketball at times.

It felt like Curry and Poole were Morant's primary point of attack first line of defense and that's just not good...but without Payton, they don't really have better options, either. They clearly need Wiggins to keep ballhawking.


Hope the home crowd gives Klay some juice, pretty rough show from him in Memphis

They can shoot 50 pct from 3, but if they keep doing dumb shit with the ball
you will see the same result.

In response to Reply # 167


  

          

multiple guys missing wide open threes. (klay jacking early in possessions when he was ice cold). steph just handing the ball over on consecutive possessions.

and wtf w/ the strategy on giving ja WIDE open 3s so he can get a rhythm? (granted, defense would have been better on him had gp2 not had his arm broken).

all that said, if they shoot even halfway decently, this is still a win.

they need to crush mem though, because i don't like anybody's chances against ja in a one or two possession game.


peace & blessings,

of being a dirty player. He went with a hard foul to prevent the layup, and the
act was hostile, but his intent wasn’t to injure or do something harmful to Payton.

The ejection was more than enough.

180. "You know what?"
In response to Reply # 174


          

I thought about it. You’re right. He should be suspended.

That foul was retaliatory and it was intentional. He did it with 3 mins into the
1st quarter, and he knew what he was doing.

If it were the 3rd or 4th quarter, that would be different.

The wind up, the force, the result, and the timing makes it a highly
egregious act.

In response to Reply # 174


  

          

Even if you want to give him benefit of the doubt and say he didn't intend to injure him... then whatever he intended in that hypothetical scenario didn't happen.

What happened was he clubbed a guy in the head in mid-air, caused him to fall, and broke his elbow.

Obvious Game 3 suspension imo. Not even close, really.

(Also, would you say Brooks is... "too good a player to be doing that"? 🤣)

197. "Oh, if that foul was by Grayson and not Dillon Brooks..."
In response to Reply # 195


  

          

... Grayson would've needed security leaving the stadium.

I get Grayson has way more history than Brooks, and that (earned) context matters, but I'm just saying, that same foul from someone with a reputation? No one's even remotely questioning a suspension.

I think too much emphasis is placed upon "did the player intend on that play being dirty?" rather than what it should be placed upon imo, which is "did the execution end up dirty?" I don't really care if Brooks is a dirty player or deserves a dirty reputation or any of that-- but the foul itself was super dirty, and that moment was super worthy of suspension imo.

you might not intend to hurt someone.

but youre aware of the risk of harm to them but putting them in certain situations.

theres a reason people dont make plays like that on breakaway leapers routinely in nba games.

shit theres a reason people dont make plays like that in pickup games. you would get your ass jumped lol.

In response to Reply # 202


  

          

Best believe I started asking for forgiveness the *split second* after I did it. It was just a fucked split-second frustration-based impulse, but I knew if someone did that to me, I would've turned around *swinging.*

Thankfully, I didn't actually push dude and he was fine, so it was squashed in short order, but I was scared literally the *second* after it happened that I coulda hurt the guy. My intent wasn't to hurt the dude, it was just to stop the play from happening in a frustrated moment. Could happen to anyone if they see red and lose track of their emotions.

But yeah. If someone had beat my ass, it probably would've been merited. And if they'd told me to fuck off for a while, I would've understood. Again, I'm thankful it all turned out okay. And that was on a way lesser level in a way slower game and a way less damaging foul, lmao.

I don't presume to know how Brooks or any dirty foul committer feels. But how they feel or felt doesn't really matter. Especially when it's *that* terrible a foul. It's hard not to find merit in punishment when the results of the moment are what they are.

I don't think the result is dismissible, because the emotions of the series, both from players and fans, are running high as a result of the injury.

If Payton got up and was fine, I imagine the conversation around the penalty would be a little different, more room for debate in terms of subsequent punishment, etc... but he wasn't fine, so the hypothetical doesn't really matter.

if a player gets injured on a reckless/dangerous foul...doesnt that validate how reckless/dangerous of a foul it was? the result was exactly the outcome the rules were put in place to address and deter from happening.

its why theres harsher rules for coming under a shooter (especially if they land on the closers foot). because we watched players get injured from that. the rules are literally birthed out of the results/consequences of those actions.

stop or contain Ayton in the paint. They just don’t have a big who can
play on the same level. Everywhere else I think they have some decent
matchups. Booker/Paul vs Brunson/ Luka is pretty even and Dimwiddie/Finney/
Bullock is pretty even vs Bridges/Crowder/Johnson.

Kleber/ Powell are going to have to step up big time. One of them is going to have to
at least go 10/10. 5 points and 4 rebounds aren’t going to cut it.

series. He carried Dallas against Utah while Luka was out. He averaged
like 24/7 in that series, so based on that performance and Luka’s ability, that
would be somewhat of an even matchup against Booker/Paul..where
all players would put up similar numbers.

Let’s see what happens in Dallas.

Like, you could get from commercial to commercial and not sound ridiculous because Steph is looking mortal(ish) for the first time in eight years and Paul is looking durable(ish) for the first time in…eight years?

But I think if you took the 2K exercise of “Steph plus guys” vs “Chris plus same guys” Steph’s team wins and I think you know that, deep down

In response to Reply # 199


  

          

Golden State has nothing for Ayton... but Ayton can't really play against the Warriors' death lineup. Dray is the best team defender in the NBA... but Mikal is the best on-ball defender in the NBA. Steph is the best perimeter weapon in the playoffs of the last decade... but CP3 has looked unbeatable at times running the offense this playoffs.

Should be a really awesome chess match between Kerr and Monty.

To play at a high level well into their 30’s but really it’s not, Kobe, Wade, Iverson, Carmelo, Westbrook, even MJ to an extent, all took a step back in their 30’s.

Most people were saying CP3 was washed a few years ago when he was traded to OKC but he seems to have rejuvenated himself with Book in Phoenix

I just don't know how you can be considered Top 5 if the other team purposefully isolates to get you one on one in the 4th quarter. That's a really bad look. Players just go right by him for easy plays.

Brunson/bullock fighting thru the screen/momentarily giving cp3 an extra .5 seconds..is that *never* the move? (vs the switch onto luka)

In response to Reply # 217


  

          

Like, maybe a zone can cause some temporary disruptions, sure... but the Suns are one of the best in the country at mid-range shooting, one of the best in the country at passing the ball, and one of the best in the country in 3P% when they do take 3s.

I think if they saw more than a flash or two of zone that CP3's mouth would water.

In response to Reply # 209
Thu May-05-22 11:08 AM by Frank Longo

  

          

I bet if we run down the All-NBA teams this year, half of them will range from mediocre-to-awful on defense. Giannis, Tatum, Embiid, Siakam, and Butler are the only genuinely consistently really good playoff defenders likely to make the list. The others are good-but-exploitable (CP3, etc), good-if-they-try (Durant, etc), and a bunch of bad defenders, lol.

Even some good-to-great rim protecting big men have been getting repeatedly targeted on perimeter switches in the playoffs. I honestly wonder if even someone like Embiid was on a team with better defenders if a playoff team would try to pull him away from the rim and put him on an island. It's basically the Gobert thing with added mobility: he's just so much more effective inside, and while he moves well for a big man on the perimeter (better than Gobert), he's still not going to be able to stop the best guards/wings defensively on the outside in iso consistently. Not even an Embiid diss-- especially because, as mentioned, he'd fare better than the majority of true big men in iso perimeter defender against star guards/wings-- just the nature of playoff basketball and playing against such elite iso players and generally smarter coaches.

Honestly probably good for someone like Luka to be learning this lesson at age 23 when he still may have the capacity to become a better defender. He'll almost certainly never be a *good* defender, but he can at least ramp up the effort to, say, Steph Curry defensive effort levels. Steph has been targeted on defensive switches a healthy amount in his career, and while he's still not a *good* defender, he at least gives a shit enough that he can make some sneaky plays here and there and not be a total matador.

And this is honestly why I posed the question about if people would consider Tatum a Top 5 player right today... because the more and more that fans consider being a two-way player paramount to one's Top 5 credentials, the more and more likely Tatum is on that list.

when he injured caruso...

but oddly think this 1 game suspension for dillon is too far.

and the dillon foul was more egregious by virtually every criteria they use to assess these things...windup, blow to the head, unnecessary (from behind on an airborne player with an already clear path to the basket), no play on the ball, etc.

i cant call it.

The problem is Brunson has disappeared. Brunson avg about 25 a game in the
Utah series, so Doncic/Brunson were able to have their way against Conley
and Mitchell. It’s an entirely different ballgame for him so far in this series.

Let’s see what takes place in Dallas, but so far Paul/Booker have gotten the
best of Doncic/Brunson. Brunson is not holding up his end of the matchup.

242. "I think he's better than that, but I do think his talent has a ceiling."
In response to Reply # 237


  

          

Like, he's the perfect sort of player to stunt on a backcourt like Conley/Mitchell that just straight up can't defend players on an island. And he's crafty enough to get past most big men switched onto him. He's going to make a lot of money, because he can be the starting PG for plenty of teams in the NBA imo.

But I'm definitely skeptical that he has the size, speed, and athleticism necessary to consistently produce when you're facing one of the best perimeter defense teams in the NBA on a nightly basis. And if you're relying on him to be your second option on offense, I'm... not convinced that's good enough to get you to a conference finals.

It'll be interesting to see if he stays or goes, how much he's paid, what role he's asked to do, etc. If he can find a team that'll pay him a ton of money to be the third option, I think dude could be stellar. If he's second option for a team, carrying a heavier workload... I think it'd be fine regular season but could be trouble for any team with real finals aspirations.
