He was pushed out of bounds super hard, I think. As I think Claud said earlier, YES network hates replaying questionable calls though, so maybe I'm wrong lol.


they didn't show it at all...i'm just like...how the hell did this even happen?

Allen’s passing is a joy to watch. There are bigs in the league who have played for 10+ years that can’t make that pass to the corner.

Toronto has gotten away with physical play and flopping all game long, but as soon as Rodi busts someone in the head they want to call flagrant fouls.

The Nets are the favourites to come out of the East next year IMO.

17 turnovers to 9. There's your answer.

He can't carry the load vs this elite defense.

Nobody else does anything on offense besides hitting open shots, and Allen rolling to the rim.


People are asking a LOT right now from LeVert. and this roster in general.

Yeah, chucking today aside, he's grown immensely this last month and a half. And there's no one else to take charge and put the pressure on anyway. He's being overextended against a premier deflopse and he's still got his own limits.

Complaining aside, I am in no way mad at Caris. You can't be mad at a guy because he didn't suddenly go from a young Joe Johnson type player on the rise, to prime LeBron in one night, or mad at him because he's thrust into a bigger role than he's meant for. He's gone out and exceeded expectations and in this series, this game, with this current roster, there is no one else.

This has kind of been buried in all the talk of how far Caris has come. I've been extremely impressed with him as well and in particular his passing, overall defense especially on switches to smaller faster players and recoveries in the paint, plus his rebounding.

Another positive I’m seeing from the Nets is we’re getting better at limiting transition buckets.

I thought Allen was immense defensively today, that was the biggest positive for me today. He played like a proper defensive anchor today, while working his ass off on the offensive glass. Still has a long way to go on offense but he was comfortably our best player today.

His hook shot is money. No hesitation either lol.

He's already one of the top tier 2 centers in this league and has a ton of untapped potential that will likely come just through experience and built confidence. That's why I'd be hesitant to give him up in any deal that wasn't for a guy like KAT, Embiid, Beal, Mitchell, or someone of the similar ilk.

I love when young players add something new to their game every year. Plus he’s a no nonsense hard worker. As he bulks up, he will be able to throw his weight around more. I wana see him taunt people and stare them down after he blocks shots. Makes mf’ers think twice about coming in the paint!

Siakam has been ass these last 2 games offensively. Locking up and clamping down on Levert when he switches on to him or anyone else for that matter on the defensive end but on the offensive he has been assss cuz no one on the Nets roster should be able to guard him.

For Allen to unlock his game he need to develop a shot to spread the floor a bit. He is good.

You know I didn’t watch the game. Had to work. But I watched the play by play online. And I know I didn’t have expectations for this game. But to be ahead the whole game to only lose it at the end actually feels worse that Monday

He is facing ELITE defensive pressure that is usually reserved for superstars, and even then superstars usually don't have G League level players to kick the ball out to. Next season the Raptors won't be doing any of this against us, they'll be getting cooked if they even dare.

If he can get get a 15 foot jumper to go down consistently that will be a championship level move for this roster

Sean needs to sit KD and Kyrie down and nip this in the bud. Politics should not stand in the way of progress. If Allen is playing this way or even better come training camp, Jordan will need to check his ego.
