Morris had about 3.5 seconds after a pumpfake (on Gobert) to pass to a wide open Kawhi 3ptr.

But Kawhi shouldnt have passed up a 3 attempt against Joe Ingles for Morris to take a 3 against a DPOY. Rondo's death stare scarred Kawhi.

Clippers gonna clip.

I don't think PG was his first choice. Didn't he try to lure KD? :lol:

Sucks the Jazz-Clips is so late. It looks like there will be some great games to watch.

You get lit up by Luka and now by Spida while you are supposed to be the best two-players in the game.
with all those 3s being taken, I understand but still :-?

As long as Embiid is relatively healthy, they beat the Hawks, probably in less than 7 games.

Embiid is so good. They completely dominate when he's on the court.

Paul George just flat out sucks. I now wish the Celtics had gotten him at the trade deadline a couple of years ago, as it was rumored to happen, just to sink the Celtics boat further by giving up some of their talented youth for such a mentally weak and insecure player.

He belongs out in Orlando or some other currently inconsequential team.

The team rides or fades with his health - as is the case when a superstar goes down for any team. But man oh man he's such a unique player.

If the 76ers were the team that made the move for Harden, Id take them to come out of the East and probably win the title.

Ben Simmons is such a disappointment that people don’t even rip on his low scoring games anymore lol.

I'm scared to believe in the Jazz as well. The disappointment of Mavs not knocking Clippers out sent me into a depression for a couple of days.

So I'm hitching my hopes on the Nets to f the Clippers.

If Conley is back and at least 90% of himself, I think they win.

People are overrating this Clippers team and underrating this Jazz team. People saw them struggle against a one man team in Dallas and said “Oh well they were a better matchup, the Jazz don’t have Luka or long wings to defend Kawhi”

As much as the Jazz let people get the mid range, having Gobert at the rim instead of **** Boban and KP makes a huge difference in the threat of their drive to get those open jumpers. The Mavs were getting absolutely killed at the rim by PG and Kawhi.

Kawhi and PG are not great playmakers and their offense is pretty predictable. The Jazz are basically forcing Clippers role players to beat them. In the first half everyone was having career nights. In the second half, not so much. The Jazz actually looked way more comfortable defending the Clippers when Kawhi was on the floor and seemed kind of confused on what to do with those wonky Cousins/Beverly/Kennard minutes

Clippers also have no answer for Donovan Mitchell, who can blow by any of their defenders with ease and attack the paint as much as he wants.

The Jazz are already really good at zipping the ball around and forcing the defense to rotate like crazy, until they make a defensive lapse that gives up a wide open three or Gobert roll to the rim. Mitchell and Conley just make that offense even better.

For the first time in a long time the NBA may have parity. IF the Nets experiment fails I'd love to see the Utahs, Phoenix, Denvers, Phillys etc battle it out for the title. So much more exciting than the LeBron squad/KD Warrior gibberish (Raptor and Spurs titles notwithstanding) we've seen over the last 10 years.

If the nets fail and only another super team beat them... Well, forget it.
