Mason Plumlee making a case for being the worst player on a good team.

I was hoping they would go away from playing him after their success with him on the bench last game. He only brings size and screens.

I think Plumlee must have incriminating photos on Malone. Why does he stick with him? They are better smaller with shooters.

Man, this Lakers-Nuggets series has been crazy intense. 3-1 is really misleading. Murray has been absolutely jaw-dropping through the entire postseason. I can't even count how many incredible shots he made tonight that just had no business going in. He sounded completely devastated in the post-game interview. You could tell he was physically and emotionally drained and gave that game absolutely everything he had. I feel bad for the guy. But he's only 23. He's got a really bright future in the NBA.

Yes, the Nuggets are easy to like, and the series has been great. I think both the team and the coach are light on experience relative to their opponent, and that's the difference.

Experience is important, but I honestly just think it's a bad matchup for the Nuggets. The Nuggets really just have no answer for AD, whereas the Lakers have several athletic bigs they can throw at Jokic.

Incidentally, I think the finals ends up being Lakers vs Heat as it appears it will, I think the Heat will be a far tougher matchup for the Lakers than the Nuggets have been. I do pick the Lakers, but it will not be an easy series for them by any stretch. I'll be very surprised if doesn't go at least 6 games, and I wouldn't be at all surprised if the Heat end up winning the title.

Also, Jokic's lack of athleticism or conditioning or whatever you want to call is finally showing up. After the game the TNT crew pointed out that Jokic has gone scoreless in the 4th quarter the past two games, probably because he's gassed. Unfortunately, I think that will probably always be a problem for him. If he doesn't have good stamina at age 25, even after losing all that weight, he's probably not going to get it later on.

Barkely is the only one worth listening to. Jokic was in foul trouble. He has to guard AD.

Remember that Denver is missing Barton's 15ppg and MPJ is on his way to beasting. They will be the team to beat in the coming years.

Murray has some incredible baskets, but I think a lot of those will soon hit the wall. He has some Luka in him, but Luka uses better footwork versus trying to always make a tough shot go in.

And Luka makes those great plays look ridiculously easy. Murray is amazing, but makes everyone look so difficult. He won't be able to play like this for very long.

I don't disagree with what you're saying, but I just can't believe the guy with the most lethal high pick and roll combo in the NBA can't figure out how to punish Vogel for playing McGee/Howard. I also can't believe we aren't seeing more Laker possessions end with Rondo/KCP 3's.

KCP is shooting 39% from 3 this series. That may not be the best result for Denver. Iíve only watched some of this series, but Iíve been seeing Rondo hot his shots from midrange (but Iíll agree that they should be letting Rondo shoot all he wants especially from 3).

Anybody else noticed that Lebron looks gassed in the 4th quarter? Think I saw a stat the other day that he was averaging like 6 points in the second half of games.

I was thinking that the exact same thing last night. He looked totally gassed through the second half, until the last couple of minutes, when he really got going on defense. He was constantly settling for long, contested shots, and his shots were consistently short. Couldn't break the defense at all. I mean it makes sense. The dude is going to be 36 in December. Just goes to show the Lakers really need that 3rd option so Lebron doesn't have to carry so much of the offense. Kuzma was supposed to be the guy, but he's just so inconsistent.

They need to be more decisive on the pnr and run some misdirects. Itís become a little predictable. Also, if they run it at the top of the key itís harder for Jokic to exploit the mismatch on his end (defenders can run at him as he back down). Iím surprised they arenít posting Jokic up more and letting him draw fouls/double teams. His great passing has been largely negated. Some of that is the Lakers are a legit good defensive team.

Also, I maintain that Plumlee is just a space filler in this series and they’d be better served using a bigs rotation of Jokic, Grant, Millsap, Porter, Craig. And what happened to PJ Dozier?!
