I wonder if him or Devonte Graham wins most improved?

https://www.basketball-reference.com/boxscores/201910260MIL.html 3 for 5 from deep and a W.
https://www.basketball-reference.com/boxscores/202003020MIA.html 3 for 7 from deep and a W.

So Miami is 2-0 vs Miami this season. :o With Crowder and Iggy, they spanked the Bucks around.

Interesting point Zeno raised, Giannis seems like he gets rattled by our crowd, same with Embiid. This might be better for those kind of players with their shots. Damn Lowry bout to win finals mvp :lol:

He did have his best 2 games of the finals during game 3 and 6 in Golden State. :o

2019/2020
Home: 40.7% (32.3% from 3)
Road: 42.6% (38.6% from 3)

Though over his career it's even.

Will teams that leave team open for 3s by design like the Bucks and Raptors for that matter need to change course? I have a lot more confidence in Nurse adjusting than Bud. While I think there is a chance the Raps (or some other team can beat the Bucks), I would still see the Bucks as the most likely team to represent the east.


I think there is a big difference between what we do and what Bucks do. We leave bad shooters open.

MIP belongs to Bam

Miami beating the Bucks in the 2nd round would be ideal :D to not only winning the year but also our pitch to Giannis. We can't eliminate him 3 times in the last 4 years :lol:

We send the double from the weak side and make them throw a long dangerous cross court pass or make 2 passes to get to the open player and hopefully the defense rotates quick enough. Either way it could get the opposing team out of their offense and make them have to make more difficult decisions.

But that might up the Heat (no state tax) probability to sign him to like 20%, like the Raptors. :reporter:

MIL has had excellent supporting casts for Giannis enabling the best regular season record for 2 of the past 3 seasons. If we beat up on him for the 3rd straight time, that would make him like a rich man's DeRozan - a playoff choker unable to carry his team to an NBA Finals. Whether he wants to join us or not... do we even want to sign a guy like that and give him a max contract?

if the raptors make the finals this year, even if they don't win the chip, I'd put it up there with the greatest season in franchise history. I'd certainly enjoy it much much more...

I still have respect for Kawhi but the guys around him on the Clippers are very unlikable....PG, Bev, Harrell, Morris, PPat, Lou will.....I do not want to see any of those guys celebrating.
