lol at Pat Beverly. Running his mouth after the game in the locker room, and jumping on the announcers table like they won the championship. You won a play in game against a team missing their best player. Your 7 points were irreplaceable.

I hate Pat Bev and all

But NBA needs passion. Honestly without the Luka storyline and sometimes even with it, I’ve been bored to tears watching NBA ball. Bad reffing and all emotions are forbidden. Makes for some poor entertainment

Man the Blazers traded 3 first round picks and Gary Trent for Powell, Cov, Nance and turned those 3 plus CJ McCollum into Keon Johnson, Josh Hart and Milwaukee’s 2025 1st?! Yikes

Another fun stat:

Chris Paul is 0-14 in the last 14 playoff games called by Scott Foster

It’s not just the Mavs that have a ref issue.

lol - interesting...
however, to my clearly unbiased eyes (and with the sound off and only half paying attention), the portion of the game i saw was called ok with the exception of a few ticky tacks called in favor of Paul.

C Paul is destined to never win a chip

If I had to choose between Jokic and Embiid providing both are healthy...I'm taking Embiid all day, every day.

Incredible game winner.

By all accounts, Terrence Ross provided the rebuilding Orlando Magic with the ideal veteran presence during the 2021-22 season. But Ross has made one thing clear: He’d like to continue his career elsewhere.

Although he’s made it clear he’d like to be in a different situation, Ross said he hasn’t explicitly requested a trade. He’s entering the last season of a 4-year, $54 million contract ($50 million guaranteed) he signed with the Magic during the 2019 offseason. Ross, who’s the longest-tenured Magic playing having been in Orlando since February 2017, has an $11.5 million salary for 2022-23 — about $1 million more than the projected standard mid-level exception ($10.3 million). – via Khobi Price @ Orlando Sentinel

Nah. Jokic is still a much better player. Great shot by Embiid. But Precious really chumped that down the stretch. 2 missed ft, turnover and on the final play he lost Embiid on a screen by Tobias. He was just totally caught flat footed and so Embiid had a much better look than he should have.

Siakam looked terrible. Guys just sag off him and dare him to shoot and teams can sit on his spin move. Toronto should try to run more. Their half court offense isn’t great, especially without Barnes. Philly just backed off Siakam and Precious leaving all contested looks from 3.

Yeah there may be a time coming but for now I'd still say Jokic - Embiid is uber talented no doubt but gimme Jokic.

now one thing that stood out to me - Precious is a big dude but i have to say he looked small compared to Embiid... like tiny just about.

I respectfully disagree, Embiid can be a little bit of a ball stopper (although he is certainly the more dominant scorer). Jokic is a playmaker who lifts those around him.

But Embiid still averages 4.2 assists per game, so it's on like he is a black hole who isn't passing to his team. I just feel like his dominance as a scorer is more important than the all around play of Jokic.

He also has that intensity as a player that you can't teach. He wants to shove it down your throat and then some.

I like the Bucks. Built the right way, smaller market. Hate the Suns. Almost exclusively because of CP. Not a huge fan of Booker either though. Love his game, he just seems arrogant.

Jokic and Embiid are both f**king awesome.

It’s funny that Goran turned down the raptors (and maybe Mavs, although we may have given up our pursuit after SD) because he wanted to go far in the playoffs

Nets were swept. Raptors are still in and their adjustments are giving them a chance of an upset. Mavs are up 3-2

How would Dragic fit into the rotation here? I'm not seeing where I'd poach minutes. If anything maybe from SD and JG, but then again, the 8-man has been solid, albeit for one series.
