Wow man :D
Do you know how bad you have to shake someone of Gobert's length to get his shot contest basically out of the frame. :lol:

At this point, I’d actually be a little disappointed do not make the Western Conference finals – what a crazy change in expectations from last year.
Right?! I told my son in NY that I'm flying out and we're going to a playoff game at Barclays Center if we play the Nets in the Finals. Speaking of which, they are scary with all of their firepower.

Reminds me of certain Suns teams from back in the day coached by a certain coach who is now part of the current Nets coaching staff and now head coached by a certain player from said Suns team of the past.

Speaking of coming full circle... Wouldn't that be something.

Yes, it is beautiful and can be watched many times over. Gobert reminds me of a dance number from West Side story as he leaves the screen in dramatic fashion, stage left. And then I see ballet as two Jazz defenders jump back into the picture in a unison choreographed jump. This is all followed by a silly comedy dance performed by the rest of the stage crew.

Ha! Trying to lessen the loss, Jazz fans?

No it didn't. The other team won. The team representing the Suns in this case which is my point.

We made Nash a 2xMVP and first-ballot HOFer. He owes us.

Any Jalen Smith highlights?

Here's a Jalen clip plus some others



I think this is that play Baja was mentioning about Mikal flashing to the FT line. Sometimes he takes the jumper but it's also a good option for the lob to DA if the defender is fronting. DA also looking like he has the option of kicking it to the corner for Cam if he's in trouble.

That defensive possession where Bridges blocked Clarkson twice was beautiful

Cap: I wouldn’t. Somebody remember to check this post in five years and see which of us looks the fool.

And he started by pushing Gobert out from under the basket and fronting him.

I had the same reaction. That was a great defensive possession by Bridges.

Sometimes Bridges has "meh" offensive numbers, but it's important to remember that he's busting his ass and being a general terror on the other end of the floor.

I don't care if it is garbage time. So good to see him do something good on the court.

The first 2 shots by Smith were just him taking advantage of being wiiiiiiiide open. Still good to see him hit those shots with no hesitation.

The 3rd shot is nice because he got that bucket doing the same thing he did so well in college. He kept moving until the defender lost track of him, then got himself into position to score.

I still hold out hope that he can be a rotation player for us next season.
