Our final 4 should be good, Golden State, Portland, and San Antonio all fighting for positioning down the stretch. Of course we’re just better than them. After tonight, our final 7 should all be good. Atlanta, New York, and LAL are the other 3.

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

Like I said in the game day thread, we're playing all playoff teams after this game from here on out.
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!

15 years ago today Tim Thomas reached the pinnacle of his career, sending Game 6 to OT with a game-tying three to keep our first round series alive.

As clutch as Thomas' shot was, I always remember the rebound by Marion first because it defined who he was as a player.

That classic Tim Thomas clip was the perfect way to start the day; thanks. What a team that was.

It's a shame to see so many injuries in Cleveland. Those guys were playing tougher than their record shows.

I’ll never forget that shot or the Raja clutch three against LAC in ‘06.

Amazing seeing that footage and remembering nearly our entire front court was in street clothes most of the year. Amaré, KT, Brian Grant... the championship that could have been.

Brutal Brutal run of games.....

8/52 from deep
1/7 on pull-up jumpers

I'm not too fussy about the (shot selection) on lots of his wing 3s recently. Most of them are a step or sometimes even two steps behind the line and yea shooters shoot but in a funk...
Well idk bout some of those ones

More importantly the corner 3 numbers are the real eye opener. The quote n quote "easiest shot", just no way you can be shooting 4/18.



So yea there's the awful truth. Shooting is technique, mainly repititon and confidence. We know Cam's form is pure so it really isn't ideal for it to be mental at this point as he/we approach the most important games.
Well I gonna hang in there with my boy though 😬😤

I'm not too worried about Cam Johnson's poor shooting. He's just in a cold stretch. I don't think the rest of his game has suffered, so I still have confidence in him. He has been streaky this year. This is the perfect time to go cold, so he can get hot again right as the playoffs start. :D

I've noticed he seems to be rushing his shot at times. Well, better now than in the playoffs.

Maybe someone should not punch Cam in the face again. He had a pretty good game with the mask on, IIRC.

Remember when Paul came into the league with Deron Williams and there was talk about who was the better PG prospect? :lol: How long has Williams been out of the league now? Feels like a decade.
