The Golden State Warriors (12-4) defeat the Philadelphia 76ers (8-7), 124-116.
This game really highlighted how bad Kidd's defensive scheme is as a coach
It feels like sixers we're playing at 100% at the half, and 50% from there on out. They're young, so that first half showing has incredible upside and I'm sad I missed it, but I felt like their play started deteriorating and they were gassed partway through the third quarter. I think that with more intelligent play, better rotation management, etc, we could be looking at another 2012 thunder down the road
The Dallas Mavericks (3-14) defeat the Milwaukee Bucks (8-7) 111-79. The Mavs tie a regular season record with 19 made 3s
Jesus, he's ripped
He about to start on the cardinals
I completely forgot about him
There are few things I hate more than hearing people say professional basketball players are “not so good at basketball”
Knight was truly a fringe all-star before he got to Phoenix. He got fucked by poor rotations, a crowded backcourt and injuries.
I promise you, Brandon Knight is anything but a “not so good basketball player”
Got to put those European soccer skills to use somehow.
It doesn't look like Capela was trying to grab his shoe though
The NBA should review this and change the rules if there is even one, getting a tech for caring about the safety of other players is fucking pathetic.
Clint doesn't even look at or reach for his shoe. It looks like he wanted to set a screen for Anderson. I think the refs are just being too eager to blow their whistle.
UNLEASH THE LAVINE
Justin Holiday gon chuck a career high 15 3s before Lavine can come back.
Finally damn. Forgot about dude
LaVine has the potential to average 25-26 ppg on that Chicago squad.. boy is gonna be good
He's back baby!! Gonna make that Bulls offense a little more interesting
He just said that
So was Jaylen Brown
A) No, and B) Kuzma is like 4 years older
Some of those steals were pretty slick
Lebron was right
"epitomy of $habazzle dazzle"
Players who peaked in their rookie season?
What are some examples of players who peaked in their rookie season, NOT due to injury??
MCW peaked in his first game
Literally his best game was his first. His stats were ridiculous,
22 points, 12 assists, 7 rebounds, and 9 steals
OJ Mayo, MCW, and Tyreke (kinda)
Tyreke is reviving his career right now man
Which young/unproven player are you higher on than most people?
For me it's Malik Beasley. He doesn't play much and nobody seems to talk about him but he has the kind of athleticism, body control, shooting ability and work ethic/attitude that lead me to believe he will be a starter one day.
What about you? I'm interested to see if there's any hidden gems i should be looking out for
OG Anunoby, was high on him during the draft and like what I've seen this season.
I'm still incredibly high on Fultz, but I'm not sure if everyone still is.
What hes not autistic lmao.
Anunoby because bias
With 4 triples last night, Chris Paul joins Gary Payton and Jason Kidd as the only players in league history to amass at least 15000 PTS, 8000 AST, 1900 STL and 1000 3PM
If the STL constraint will be removed, Steve Nash should be included in the list.
It's easy to forget how great Chris Paul really is.
I remember an SI issue from like 9 years ago talking about Chris Paul and how hard he trains to compete with peers like Gilbert Arenas and Deron Williams. Those dudes almost definitely didn't get the most out of their talents, while CP3 is still going strong.
Curry has almost 2k threes wtf
He's the leagues greatest ever chucker, but he actually makes them so it's not even really chucking.
In other words. Embiid just doesn't give a crap.
The Sixers could be down 50 and Embiid would probably still talk shit. You gotta respect that.
I fear what his trash talk game will be when he is at 100 percent, after all he is only at 69 percent.
real recognize real
