They literally could have thrown it over the top to Adams. There was nobody between him and the hoop, and the defenders wouldn’t have gotten there. Easy layup.

Does Donovan not know how to draw up a play or do they not know how to execute? Both? It looked like confused dudes running into each other.

The last few minutes of the game looked like that for OKC. They had two timeouts and didn't use either of them until it was too late. I kept waiting for them to call timeout when they got the ball back with under a minute left and they never did.

SGA choked hard on the first inbound attempt and they let him do it again. Put Paul there and let him throw a lob to Adams

Agreed. They could have just thrown it over the top to Adams. Tucker can’t stop that pass if you throw it high enough, and the other defenders were too far away to make a play. Really makes you appreciate Rick who is one of the better coaches at drawing up plays to get a good look.

He was very tentative to the point I thought they should pull him. He did hit a big 3 down the stretch though.

I thought OKC matched up better with the Lakers and would’ve made for a better series. I guess this is the ultimate test for Morey small ball, going against team behemoth.

It's put up or shut up time for AD. He's been one of the five or ten best players in the league for nearly a decade but he's never been past round 2. He needs to completely dominate this series. As small as Houston is, there's absolutely no excuse for him not to.

Hope he has an experienced staff. Does Nash have any coaching experience? I know he was with the Warriors, but I thought that was more of a consultant basis?

He was a consultant. They screwed Jacque Vaughn IMO........Vaughn has been coaching for years and he did a good job with the Nets. I guess he'll be that experience for Nash.

Yep. And he was picked over Vaughn who is staying on the staff. I have to believe Nash was picked by KD though, or at least approved it.

I thought Vaughn earned the job. But then I also didn’t think Atkinson should get axed.

the last 2.4 seconds of the Rockets/Thunder game took 14 minutes.
Maybe they should experiment more with the Elam ending more?

Steve Kerr had zero coaching experience (though 6 years as consultant and GM in Phoenix) when he took over the mess that Mark Jackson left behind in Golden State.

Nash's biggest challenges in Brooklyn won't be Xs and Os, but more likely Durant's gimped achilles and Kyrie's overrated game, over-inflated ego, and the long knives that he likes to bury in coaches' backs.

Again, Good Luck, Steve. You're gonna need it. And if things don't work out in BK, then maybe hustle on down to Big D in a couple of years to team up with Dirk on the Mavs' bench, when the fans finally run Carlisle off.

Why on earth would you put tack fall in when he hasn't played at all? And then the shooter is left wide open...wow.

I get putting Tacko in. He’s a big guy just covering the ball. Make the inbound pass tougher. Lowry made a great pass. Not sure why OG wasn’t being covered though.

Man the Bucks are a sorry ass team. Absolutely no killer instinct. No effort to get Giannis the ball and horrible shot selection and body language.

Giannis gone

letting Brogdon walk because they cheaped out one year before max extension time and two years before UFA free agency was so freaking stupid

Giannis’ inability to hit a shot from outside kills them. Teams will let him shoot all day.

random comments on games 9-4-20
Jimmy Butler yelled loudly - "He can't guard me" (about Giannas)

LeBron going scoreless in the 4th quarter.

Bucks coach catching major heat for not playing G.A. and Midleton more minutes.
Played Giannis only 35 mins and Middleton 36 mins in a do or die game 3.

After the game - they asked Mark Dan Tony (see what I did there...) about the overall team height and he said "well all of our guys can touch the rim so..."

Harden on people calling the Rockets small: "You can be 7 feet tall but if you don’t have heart it doesn’t matter. If you don’t have dog in you it doesn’t matter.”

Coach Spo on Heat Culture: "Our culture is probably U.D. screaming at everybody in one of the timeouts. And us liking it."

Middleton is the Harrison Barnes of the Bucks.

Westbrick is such an incredible dumb basketballer.

And MDA shows again why he is a terrible playoff coach. No guts whatsoever

Lakers have no talent outside of Bron/Davis. They literally needed Rajon Rondo making jump shots to win this. Mavs would have done well against them.

They really don’t. I hate having to root for them but can never root for a Harden team. Really pulling for Raptors v. Nuggets final. Dislike the rest of the teams, though Boston is all right. Hate Miami, both LA teams and Houston.

The Clippers were easily the worst possible matchup for the Mavs, and they took the Clips to 6 games with their second best player absent for about half the series. If they could win 2 games against the Clippers, I have no doubt they could win three games against the Lakers. Maybe 4 with a lucky break here and there.

The weird thing is, before the pandemic, the Lakers looked really dominant towards the end. The supporting cast was solid. I think it really just goes to show that this is basically a whole new season. Anything that happened outside of the Bubble is ancient history.

I think not having Avery Bradley hurts them a lot more than anyone realized. He's easily their best defensive guard. Kuzma was supposed to be the third guy, but he's just too inconsistent. They the same problem the Mavs do. Guys who look great one night will look like scrubs the next. Kuzma, KCP, and Danny Green are to them what guys like Seth, THJ, and Maxi are to the Mavs.

Nuggets totally threw that one away. So many turnovers.
