WTF Harkless just blocked a dead ball shot by hanging on the net, turning upside down, and blocking it with his foot

Re: NBA Season Thread 2018-19

Fired because his star got Viral Meningitis, inherited a rudderless group of nobodies that included a castaway second-rounder who couldn't get minutes in Portland (Barton) and one of the worst rookies in history (Gary Harris). Then he and the franchise decide to take a fat European drafted 41st and build their entire franchise around his unique skill-set.

Congrats coach Malone.

Which one of these names doesn't belong...


Elfrid Payton joined the likes of Russell Westbrook, Oscar Robertson, Wilt Chamberlain and Michael Jordan in having 5 straight triple doubles.

I hope the west ends up with standings as it is right now. Nugs vs Jazz and Rox vs Thunder is ideal, then puts teams with less intrigue (Warriors vs Clippers and Blazers vs Spurs) together

Back up the truck and load up on HOU. I figure they will be around -220 for the series, close to free money.

I like UTA at +230 or better. I see matchup problems for DEN.

Re: NBA Season Thread 2018-19

As a Warrior fan having Den/OKC/Houston on the other side of the bracket would be ideal.

Re: NBA Season Thread 2018-19

Bogut was pretty solid for the Warriors yesterday considering it's been over a year since he played and he's probably still suffering jet-lag.

I loved the starting lineup as it reminded me of the 15/16 Warriors (still my favorite Warriors team even though they didn't win it all). The only difference was a slight upgrade to Barnes...

Re: NBA Season Thread 2018-19

NBA TV having a bad day. Giannis and LeBron both out of tonight's game. So it will be 60% of the Bucks starters against the Lakers castoffs that LeBron couldn't cast off.


EDIT: Ersan reportedly out, too, with an illness. It's like a preseason game tonight.

Re: NBA Season Thread 2018-19

Those graphs are great. Why does Harden bum it up from that one corner?

Alex Caruso looks like he drives a van with a performance exhaust system.

Re: NBA Season Thread 2018-19

I have no data to back this up, but harden's struggles from that corner may stem from being left handed. I feel much more comfortable as a rightie from that corner than i do the opposite corner. Has something to do with arc required and natural way the ball spins off the hand.

Notice how iverson's mid range is more effective from the left. It is easier to put the optimal english off the backboard as a rightie from that side.

Re: NBA Season Thread 2018-19

Collin Sexton trying to bring back that early 00s swag, he is currently on pace to have the worst TS% in league history among people who shoot 41% from 3(3+ attempts a game) through some ugly ugly midrange shot selection*

*He just missed the cutoff I made up, but Pat Garrity had a truly wild 2001. 43% from 3, 36% from 2 at 6'9".

Re: NBA Season Thread 2018-19

Think Celts better off getting 4 seed than 3 seed pretty easily. Which is good for them because that is likely where they will land (if not 5 seed)

Tor > Mil w/ Brog hurt and BK is better than Indy. BK is atleast better than Indy in terms of being a high variance/upside team capable of pulling an upset.

Alex Caruso looks like he is going to be Johnny the shoe shine guy from "Police Squad!" when he grows up.
