They needed to go 8-0 and get help. Didn't quite get enough help because playoff teams started not trying to win. Now we have to watch a couple of teams with negative point differentials go at it.

Re: NBA Season Thread 2019-2020

Let's just hope for no injuries bigt. Wouldn't want the two finals teams getting hurt in a meaningless regular-season finale.

They can control their games, they can't control others. Their main competitor (Grizzlies, Blazers, Spurs) were all below-average competition among the remaining teams of the bubble but won quite a few games against teams not caring because their seeding was already determined.

Not somthing the NBA can anticipate and where would you have then drawn the line?

Why are the Nuggets playing their starters? Game is meaningless for them, but is super important for the Raptors.

Re: NBA Season Thread 2019-2020

I want remind everyone that the Raptors finished with the 2nd best record in the NBA despite being absolutely devastated by injuries all season to key players. They had every starter outside of OG miss significant time due to injury as well as their 6th and 7th men Ibaka and Powell. Also, they lost two starters from last year's team in free agency.


I think it's safe to say had they kept Kawhi and stayed healthy this year they would absolutely be contenders for the all time greatest team.

To my knowledge it was only surmised that Simmons read this thread and stole from it.

Team needed a miracle shot to beat the #lol76ers, a choke job by the Bucks and injuries to Warriors to win a chip.

Weird to think Lillard has more 50 point games than Kareem.

Re: NBA Season Thread 2019-2020

Divac steps down as Kings GM (i.e. forced to resign). Joe Dumars named interim Executive VP of Basketball Operations.

Lateral move?

absolutely.

heard a local sports show today say that levert made a mistake that probably started way back when he was a youngster shooting hoops in the driveway. we all did that as a kid...counting down the seconds at the end of an imaginary game in our heads so that we can make the 'game winning' shot. did any of us make that shot as a drive to the hoop? no. it's always the game winning jumper that swishes at the buzzer. that's what he tried to do

Maybe I'm bias, as he's been pretty terrible against the Warriors in the playoffs.
over the last three games since the two missed FTs against the clips (all essentially playoff games):
41.7 MIN/G,
46/82 FG (56%)
21/43 3pt (49%)
41/43 FT (95%)
3.7 REB/G
9 AST/G
1.7 STL/G
3.3 TO/G
51.3 PTS/G

Re: NBA Season Thread 2019-2020

Nets strategy: double DAME as soon as he crossed half court
DAME strategy: bomb threes from the logo before the double gets there

Ibaka is playing far better this year too, only Gasol is decidedly worse. Kawhi also learned how to pass last year in the playoffs toward the end of the Bucks series. He realized that dribbling the clock out of the ball made his teammates worse. Truly amazing how the greats can just realize something and instantly change their game and do it well
