Nick said something that wasn't stupid?
It was stupid because he just used this game as an opportunity to trash kawhi which is self serving to him because Kawhi is a threat to his king.

Hes a clown either way.

Annoyed that somebody forgot to put the shot clock somewhere on the screen.

Also, maybe just me but the score also seemed to change a tad bit faster than what I'm used to. Almost like whoever's responsible already knew the shot was going in or not before the action on the screen.


Definitely noticed these things as well. Good job pointing it out. We'd score and I'd look at the score and it was often already changed. Not too much of a deal as the shot clock though. Shot clock pressured shots just seemed like really dumb shots.

He’s really trying to claim that lack of fitness from the Lakers is the reason we beat them. You have to understand wording!! Was anybody saying the Lakers looked “lax” against the clippers ? Nah they were talking about how that was playoffs level basketball.

To be honest, I was expecting the W and would have been really disappointed if they didn’t get it. Our roster is just better then the Lakers. Not until Lebron is really trying to dominate out there will I take them seriously as contenders. He’s still in deferral mode.

Derozan
Lowry
Ibaka
Valanciunas
Van Vleet
Delon Wright
Lebron
Embiid

There are only 2 teams in the league that rank in the top 6 in offensive and defensive efficiency: the Golden State Warriors and the Toronto Raptors.

They didn't lose their best player. Keep Kawhi and give away Kyle, and do we win this game?

so its not enough that they have the 2 best players on the floor. They need Avery Bradley too?


Lebron also needs Steph Curry for his outside shooting and Giannis for some defense too.

I was watching on and off and didn't notice why did AD only take 7 shots? How/who did we shut him down? I saw some double teams on him but he should have asserted himself more on offense.

I saw that the odds were +2000 though, I'm willing to play with those odds. Nothings guaranteed but this team has it in their DNA to be able to win a championship, not that many teams can outwill or outperform this team imo.

Those odds won’t be like that for long for this team.

The only team I legitimately think that is better than the Raptors this year is the Bucks and the Raptors are one of the few teams with the personnel/strategy to beat them.

They doubled him every time he caught the ball in the post. He is not used to it and seemed very bothered by the pressure.

there's probably a second delay in the broadcast to accomodate the announcers, so score appears faster.

There’s not a player I love more than Kyle Lowry. If we win a championship and Kyle wins FMVP, idgaf about Giannis coming here. I’m good for the next 10+ years.

OG showed out and Lowry brought that championship DNA, good win while shaking off the rust.
