First half -

DD: 6 points with 1/11 in the field and -11.
JV: 16 points with 7/9 in the field and +26.

Casey be like: good first half by DD. He played composed. Didn't let missing some shots get to him. We need to get him more shots. JV just needs to set screens. DD is our guy.
"I definitely knew he traveled, but I didn't know they were going to call it. That was one of them situations in which a great player made a move...and they called the call. And I was like, 'Oh, man, there is a God.'

If Casey would've only fed JV the ball, could've made the series vs Lebron closer. :D

Are you drunk? The 2019 Raps were exceptional defensively with Gasol being a huge part of that. Embiid had 1 good game against us in that whole 7 game series.
9. Similarly, IF THOU HAST SPENT the entire offseason predicting that thy team will stink, thou shalt not gloat, nor even be happy, shouldst thou turn out to be correct. Realistic analysis is fine, but be a fan first, a smug smarty-pants second.

Yeah no need to try and put Gasol down, he was amazing and a big part of our run, still, JV is awesome.

Yeah, Gasol was incredible for us defensively. As much as it sucks seeing JV have games like last night, you still make that trade. Gasol was a big part of that championship team.

JV was never utilized properly here. Most of the blame has to be on Casey.

Glad to see Jonas thriving in big games. His play never really dropped off in the playoffs with the Raps, always dependable under the bright lights. Not sure why people are still harkening back to the trade. We all knew Jonas was really good - hence why the Raps were able to land Gasol, whom without the Raps don't win the title. Win-win for both teams.

I can't believe there are people that still regret the Gasol-JV trade lmao. We won a championship and wouldn't have with JV. If you can't understand that there is no hope for you.

Guys it was only one guy who claimed we shouldn't have traded JV for Gasol, let's not confuse that with the general JV fans, who are just pointing out the years we spent under utilizing him and feeling vindicated after seeing JV breaking out this season.

JV was sent to the worst situation (tanking MEM team, interim Coach) and 2 years later he's back in the playoffs in the brutal West

guy is a winner
