Your 3 Stars Tonight for Win Against Lakers 

Post#1 » by NinjaBro » Sun Aug 2, 2020 3:40 am

1. Big Booty Kyle Lowry

Just incredible all around game. Was everywhere and controlled the whole game 33pt 14reb 6ast

2. OG Anunoby

Almost had him as first star if Lowry wasn't so incredible. Shut down Lebron tonight and went for 23pts 4reb

3. Pascal Siakam

I considered Marc Gasol here but Pascal was being disruptive all night. 15pts 9reb.

As much as this would be coach speak, they literally did it tonight as a team.
This game put everyone on notice, and I think solidifies us as being a likely NBA Finalist again.
You can’t teach this style of teamwork unless you have the players willing to. We do, and we have a real chance to win back to back.

Siakam shut down AD. He's definitely the third star.

Nurse is 4th and Gasol is 5th.

Agree with OP

We still can improve on offense too.

Kawhi taught this team how to win big games.

Good point. Siakam is good even when he isn't good. Glad he's on our side.

Nick Nurse taught this team how to share the ball and go balls out on defense without fouling a jump-shooter.

Nick has the team playing elite defense with above average offense and some players that are clutch.

Seriously... its frigging annoying and seems very purposeful to keep the good ol' boys club intact. Probably reading too much into it but this stuff happens too often lol.

I'll go with Siakam for the 3rd star since he was the main guy covering AD. His offense wasn't great, but his defense sure was tonight.

While this is true, Kawhi did teach this team how to remain composed during big games and crunch time. Nick Nurse also gave this team confidence they can win any game by providing top notch world class coaching...it aint just Kawhi.

You can just see how Lowry composes himself now. He was directly impacted by Kawhi in a great way. Let's keep it going!!

Kawhi gave us 27, if we 23 out of him...man. We didn't even have to trade for Paul George!
