Yeah 21ppg on 43% shooting is impossible for Siakam to duplicate.

If that's what those rosters will look like in the playoffs, both those teams look vulnerable. In crunch time I saw Reggie Jackson, Marcus Morris, JaMychal Green, KCP, Kuzma getting minutes. Those guys aren't real.

I'd take the team that comes out of the East over either LA team at the moment

Bucks, Raptors or 76ers (if they get their acts right) > Lakers and Clippers.

Clips will not be able to handle Giannis, or Siakam/Gasol/Ibaka, or Embiid.

Lakers have 0 guard depth and have scrumba like JR playing.

FVV/Lowry/OG would eat them up like chicken.

Not talking about that. I’m saying in crunch time turning it up a gear and getting me 3 clutch and difficult 3’s to tie the game up with ease.

PG was always clutch as we saw first hand when we face the Pacers couple of years ago

Is it just me or are these away from the ball fouls way more common so far in the bubble?
When will we just change the name of 25 of the 30 teams to the Washington Generals?

Please advise….

Offense has never been JV's problems, even when he was on the raptors. He has beasted for us in a number of games.

What struck me watching him now though is how bad his positional defense is compared to what I have come to expect from Marc. Marc is always in the right position while JV constantly lets guards get past him. This has been his problem since he was with the Raptors. We would not have the #2 defense in the league with JV out on the court.
Game, blouses.
