Raps/Bucks Game 3 is on SN1 right now. Middleton and Bledsoe were so bad in this game that it is convincing me the Raptors never would have lost the Bucks series this year if they had played it.

Watching this too. Damn Kawhi looks limpy AF. Cant believe he got us through that series in his condition. They playing game 6 right after this one.

Lowry's thumb is so messed up as well. I love Gasol's defense and playmaking in this game.

Bledsoe missing wide open threes with a minute left by like 3 feet long.

look up Middleton and Bledsoe's overall stats in the ECF series....it's a joke, they should be called the trash brothers just like Lowry & Demar were. Bledsoe is a 10x worst choker than Lowry ever was yet the media never talks about it.

He had quite a bit of help from Gasol, but Kawhi essentially willed this team to victory in this game.

Yeah I watched that game 3, now game 6 closeout of Bucks. Kawhi really carried us both games. Fred, Norm had their moments, Pascal was invisible lot of the time, not to mention choking at the line at the end of regulation game 3, he could have sealed it rather than going to OT

Kawhi and Gasol were monsters in that Bucks series.

If I was a ranked college player, there’s no chance that I’d go back to school to play another season. I’d be looking to get drafted/paid considering the uncertainty of the future after this pandemic. I’m not even sure if I’d play in the (shortened?)tournament if projected top 30.

No, because Graham was as good as Malcolm Miller last year and is now a starting calibre PG shooting well from 3.

They are in the conversation for MIP on their team. Siakam should win that award on the Raptors. :nod:

I had no clue who 'Graham' was since I mostly only follow and watch games of teams I'm interested in so I had to search through the bad NBA teams to find Devonte Graham on the Charlotte Hornets. :lol:

You have a point but I personally have Fred and Norm getting the nod over Siakam.... I guess it doesn't matter. They all improved and everybody wins!

Edit: I'll throw OG's name in here too. He improved as well.

He shoots so poorly from the field. Classic case of high scoring on a bad team. I feel like what Norm has been doing this season is a lot more impressive.

Lowry is the greatest Raptor of all time.
