Re: NBA Season Thread 2020-2021

Nuggets were also awful first 2 games against Utah last year. They played them like a lottery team that didn't want to be on the floor and turned it around later in the series.

It's going to game 7

I thought the drop would be ideal as well, that's why I went back into NBALP and watched. Man I've slept on Phoenix's offense these last three months. Basically them having two capable PnR ball-handler's, one of them being a top 3 OAT PnR guard, allows them to reverse the action every..single..time. If you're dropping it's always going to be to one side, and when they reverse Rudy is always going to be out of position which forces their defense into rotation.

And they don't reverse anything from the normal angles. From what I saw it would be Devin Booker cutting into the paint from ATB and then curling around the action from under the hoop. Utah had it scouted well and would rotate, but they aren't a team that's built to be in rotation. What your left with is an elite passer and 4 other good to very good ones forcing you to run around the court.

I haven't watched them defensively yet, but I suspect they are doing some great stuff there too.

Re: NBA Season Thread 2020-2021

They made a ton of adjustments, dunno what you're on about, but none of them seemed to work. Both first halves this series were good process/bad results imo. That led to bad process/bad results against a team that doesn't make any mistakes.

@guivre1408, I don't think this is going more than 5, Phoenix is too good and Denver's role-players are playing poorly.

Re: NBA Season Thread 2020-2021

And when I say role-players, I mean the guys that weren't in the NBA earlier this year. Jamal going down hurt a lot, but it's compounded by Monte Morris, Barton, and Dozier also going down in the span of 10 games. They were still awesome when Monte Morris slid into Jamal's role, but now they are stuck in this weird spot where their two best guards are backups that came off injuries. Sure you can put them back in the starting lineup, but I suspect the chemistry will suck and they'll get blown out anyway.

The adjustments are likely coming down from the office of one Daryl Morey.

Milwaukee should just fire Budenholzer during this challenge time-out.

When Milwaukee loses this game, we can all look back at Budenholzer allowing Bruce Brown to change the momentum by leaving Lopez on the floor to be repeatedly exposed by a simple get the ball to the mid-paint action that Brooklyn's been using since mid-season.

Didn't work so well 2nd half

Although Nets are in no trouble, if that is all the Bucks had in a gm 3 up 2-0 then Nets will likely be fine
