I was impressed with the defense on Lillard in the 4th without fouling.

Not sure I agree with the criticism of Luka's shot at the end. You can't pick and choose when you like him to take those shots. It's who he is. And for the most part, we benefit.


All the greats play hero ball at the end.

Yeah I only see that excuse for him when hes missing shots. As Rick says he has flair for the dramatic.

I think he was looking for a dagger. I actually wanted him to take it, but it's easy in hindsight if he misses to 2nd guess. Still, my money's on Luka, so he can take that shot every time in that situation as far as I'm concerned.

THJ has the tools to become a good defender and just needs to focus on that aspect of his game. He could become a solid 3D guy for us if his defense improves.....just needs to work on it.

I don't mind the three from Luka at the end, he was hot from three and it's a good shot, the one legged elbow floater thing from mid range distance was a different story though. That is just not a shot you should ever take, mostly because it doesn't really exist, and for good reason.

So many highlights for one game.

I think my favourites are the hesitation move at 1:08, the pass to THJ at 2:14 and of course everything in the 4th quarter.

BTW, possible foul against Mo Harkless at 3:45??? lol

Hes better off the dribble and attacking and itd be ridiculous to limit his athletic game to just threes.

Wasn't able to watch, but caught highlights on Get Up! this morning. All three dudes were drooling over Luka and brought up the would you rather have Ben Simmons or Luka question. All three went with Luka. Absolute show in the 4th there and crazy to think he should have had a couple more and-1's without garbage reffing. A LOT of contact but at least they let Maxi go straight up with Dame so I guess the refs were consistent?

It wasn't terrible. There are always going to be missed calls, but I think Maxi and Luka are starting to gain more respect slowly. In a couple years, guys probably won't be able to breathe on Luka and he will get calls.
