    "I was just asking if I got hit in the head, how's that not a foul?" said Doncic, who on multiple occasions showed referees scratches on his arms after drives that didn't result in foul calls, once leading to a stoppage in play for infectious disease control because he was bleeding. "Just should have concentrated on the game and not talked to the refs. That was my fault."

    Coach Rick Carlisle agreed with his team's 20-year-old star.

    "I was upset, too, but I'm not going to spend 50 grand to criticize," Carlisle said. "It just doesn't make sense. These are hard games. I don't know what else to say. They're hard games, and they're very emotional. It's tough. It's tough when you think you're getting hit and the whistle's not blowing."

    The Mavs also were upset that Howard wasn't called for an illegal screen that freed up Danny Green for the overtime-forcing 3-pointer in the final seconds of the fourth quarter. Howard clearly grabbed Mavs guard Seth Curry from behind with both hands to prevent Curry from getting into the passing lane, a play that unfolded after Dallas failed to execute Carlisle's plan to foul before the Lakers had a chance to shoot.

    Warriors embracing the tank. I can’t wait for the giant pile of 10 days phase.

    Jokic has looked really bad and passive in these last couple games. Idk where the near mvp caliber player is, he was so fun to watch.

    I'm going to have to see what the biggest margin of a team going from best to worst is in one year.

    The Warriors might challenge that this year at the rate they're going.

    @Knight_ and the refs turned a blind eye on grab to free up shooter for winner, so everything worked out in the end.

  • Knight_Knight_ Dead Dead Dead Registered User regular
    I only just got home, had to drive to the airport with like 5 minutes left in the game, was freaking out in the car lol

    That’s a bit of illegal screen but horford has some sort of field that lets him get away with those, they would drive me absolutely insane whenever the Sixers played the Celtics.

    If they’re able to match the Cavs with Lebron to Cavs without Lebron (both times!) that would be impressive

    Simmons is so tremendously bad at basketball. It’s truly pathetic that a 6’10” guy can’t even fucking lay the ball in.

    When the Sixers go out in the 2nd round again it’s going to be because Simmons hasn’t improved one fucking iota his entire carrer.

    I think I might have to stop watching the Sixers. Simmons is so tremendously shit he breaks the entire offense, and now he’s not even trying on defense. Dude just cannot play anymore.

    That’s contract is going to go down as a huge god damned problem.

    Edit: god this team is absurdly bad. Jazz should have won that game by 25 given how insanely wide open they got every offensive possession. Sixers are among the most overrated teams I’ve ever seen. Whoever predicted them to go to the finals should be fired because they’re just stupid.

    Sometimes I think your level of negativity about your title contending team is some kind Kaufman-esque satire or performance art. Is your online persona really some 11th dimensional troll on the rest of us about the very concept of fandom?

    Watching an nba team for 5 years turn the ball over 20 times a game and never once properly run or defend a pick and roll will break anyone.

    he's been much worse at those things this year.

    eFG is sub-50%, dropping him like 125 places from where he was last year. Turnover ratio up pretty significantly. Rebounds have also been lower but i'll give him that one because the team is bigger.

    His games aside from boston have been pretty passive on the offensive end, and after detriot teams basically stopped guarding him and he still can't make them pay.

    edit: the turnovers and the pnr stuff is brown tho, that stuff has always been a problem under his system and it's never getting better.

    honestly this is better for the hockey - switching back and forth between rink and court night to night is awful for the quality of the ice.

    Ah weird, I wonder why. It’s such a common arrangement. I guess scheduling gets rough if east coast teams can’t hit a bunch of west coast teams all at once?
