First-round (non-Suns) playoff games

Post by Mori Chu »

Thought we should have a thread for all these games.

Jimmy Butler is currently shooting 3-15 against Milwaukee, wow. Narrow lead for the Bucks entering the 4th.

Big bucket by Jimmy especially after the game he's having
OT it is.

Hit the game tying buzzer beater to send it to OT though
Split: I would trade DA for SGA right now(11-24-2020)

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

Speaking of Butler(s)

Didn't know Caron was an assistant coach and he is basically there playing the whole game from the bench :)
Don't think he has sat down in the 2nd half

I don't remember Bam not having the confidence to take n make that FT line jumper 🤔
The space Brook is giving him so he can help on the off ball cuts is really affecting Heat offense

That was absurd.

Remember when crowds would count out loud every time Karl Malone spoke in tongues to himself before taking free throws? That was fun.

Mavs beat the Clips in Game 1! Wonderful. I love how LAC tanked a few games to avoid LAL and now they're losing to their preferred opponent DAL.

Mavs/Clippers is my 2021 definition of a hate watch.

The Mavs won the game with defense and getting shots at the rim in crunch time. I'm trying to mentally prepare myself for the Suns hunting three pointers like its early January. I might need a blood pressure prescription.

Giannis is Shawn Marion with slightly better handles. A great player. NOT an MVP. Especially not in the playoffs.

Hey now, Shawn Marion was a career 81% FT shooter.

I counted it out and it was 11 in the middle of his shooting stroke. I was wondering if they were going to start calling him for that. When I watched Bucks games this season, I remember I couldn’t work the remote and skip the FTs like I sometimes do mostly watching non-Suns teams when Giannis was at the line. He was regularly taking over 10 seconds per FT.
Wormwood/Superbone 2019/2020 season bet: Suns win < 30 games, Wormwood wins, else 'Bone wins. 1 month avatar shame starting July 1st of winner's choosing. ACCOMPLISHED! 34 wins in a shortened season! Like it mattered. We rarely see Wormwood anyway!

I like Giannis, and I think he is a great player. But I hate when these "star" players hold franchises hostage and make them bend over backwards to make questionable moves to pursue a championship when the "star" players ISN'T EVEN PLAYING AT A CHAMPIONSHIP LEVEL. Giannis, before you start making demands of the front office, why don't you make the following demands of YOURSELF when playing in the playoffs:

-Make free throws
-Don't get called for 10-second violations at the free throw line
-Learn how to consistently make midrange jumpshots
-Stop traveling all over the court

Take care of those things, then start giving the front office orders.

I mean, I agree with you, but he did just have 26-18-5 in a win and was probably the 3rd or 4th MVP this year.

Watching Blazers-Nuggets. Jokic is so much fun. McCollum looks very sharp, driving to the basket with ease.

This is a terrible take (and comp).

It would be apt comparison if Marion had been bigger and a better scorer, passer, rebounder and defender.
