ZOMG. LeBron has moved up to #2, but won't catch Steph for most playoff 3-pointers. However, he could get more rings than Steph this year. Nervous.

"James passed former teammate Ray Allen, who is very much known primarily for his shooting, for second place on the NBA's all-time playoff three-pointers list during the first half of Sunday's game against the Houston Rockets.

It was the King's 386th career playoff three-pointer, which placed him behind only Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry.

With all due respect to the 35-year-old James, he's likely not catching the younger Curry, who has already drilled a head-turning 470 triples by age 32 even though he has played 134 fewer playoff games than LeBron.

James is surely more focused on creating some separation from Curry in another category since they each have three championship rings and only one of them is in the playoffs this year with a chance to add to that total.

Lakers' LeBron James Passes Ray Allen for 2nd All-Time in NBA Playoff 3-Pointers

Toronto forces game 7 in double OT.

Celtics young players are very good but they don't always take the best shots. They are a bit too prone to heat checks.

They can get on good hot streaks, like Smart. But then they will try low-percentage shots too often.

Brown's a very good shooter with catch and shoot. Also very athletic so he tries to attack closeouts but sometimes gets into trouble. He's probably not getting some calls when Lowry and Van Fleet are stripping him.

Tatum is very talented with the ball but he ends up taking low percentage shots. Step backs or fadeaway which are well contested. He has the talent to separate from defenders but often goes for shooting in their face. The hot streak he had back in the middle of the season probably gets him star calls now. But he also forces it, either thinking he's a lot better than he is or expecting the call.

Not sure how much physical play he can take. He's kind of slight of frame and takes shots which tend to lead to a lot of contact. KD is also slight of build so he has more finesse in his game, looking to crossover and get off clean looks. He will post up but he's not trying to get a lot of contact on most of his touches.

Kemba is a good player but he probably shouldn't be a top option on a playoffs team. When he was the #1 option in Charlotte, they didn't play a lot of playoffs games. That contract the Celtics gave him may be an albatross in a year or two.


Toronto, Lowry and FVV are tough players. They get away with a lot of physical play but they're working it.

Siakam is talented with his length and athleticism but he's not going to shoot the lights out as a jump shooter. So he tries to use his length and try to back down to the rim. That works sometimes but it's one trick. He could be very effective at turnaround (the one step turnaround like KD or Dirk) or one dribble and pull up for a 5-10 footer.

If this Rockets v Lakers game isn't enough proof that we should take Wiseman I don't know what is. This is just brutal watching these little guys on the Rockets get the crap kicked out of them in the paint all game. It doesn't matter how good your guards are or how many 3's you shoot if you are a layup line that can't rebound on defend the paint. I thought this was the point West tried making with the Ellis for Bogut trade.

Brings a smile to my face that Houston's window for a title has closed.

So much for the NBA changing the entire way of playing the game. Unless they have an epic comeback. You never know.

I don't understand all this happiness about houston being down 1-3 agaisnt the ****' lakers.
Firstly, because that means lebron james and the circus that's been surronding his figure since the very first day he came into the league is going to the WCF with all the annoying narrative around it.
Secondly, because that means there will likely be a ****' L.A. derby in the WCF. And I can't think about two teams more hateful than the L.A. ones.
I personally don't wanna see the lakers nor the clippers winning a chip, even though the chip this year will have an asterix for obvious reasons.
And last but not the least, the rockets winning the title (although with the asterix) would have cemented warriors' legacy even more, because they would've won the only time the warriors weren't in contention. And that in particular would've been a hell of an argument against every dubs hater.

Still wish we traded D-Lo for Covington/Dieng/Okogie 2021 pick instead of Wiggins.

Tatum really loves that side step or step back jumpers.

He has the handle to cross over to get a clean look but he throws up some bricks on side steps.

Ant Edwards may have always been on losing teams and doesn't play defense, but his side step and step back look really good based on his age. Stuff like that makes me think he's high on the Warriors board. I hope the Wolves take Ball and let the Warriors choose who they want from the rest.
