I'm stunned by Bogdanovic's defense today.

Major props to the pacers. I watched.some of that game. They were up 23 in the 3rd and the Cavs made.a.rum to.cut it to 6. They pulled it together and answered with a big run of their own.

Huge game for Dipo.

Mil/ Bos game was sickening to watch.

I like Oubre a lot but Terry Rozier was who I hoped the Wizards would draft that year; he's paying dividends while we can only hope that Oubre is able to come to life in the Wiz/ Tor series.

I was so heated when Rozier came off the board the very next pick; I knew the impact drafting Rozier to play behind Wall would have but instead we drafted 'potential'.

Fast forward...since that draft the Wizards have been through how many backup PG's hoping that one sticks?

And then there's Khris Middleton...wanted him to be drafted 2nd rd the year he came out.

Why is it so damn difficult for the Wizards to identify the most pressing area of need and evaluate talent?

Ersan and belinelli were nice pick-ups for Philly.

This board has wanted Ilyasova for about 6 years now - back when "stretch fours" were still somewhat unique.

These days, as the PF position gets smaller and smaller, and looks more like a slightly oversized SF, I don't think Ilyasova is all that valuable. He's not worth sacrificing much to acquire. Didn't Philly sign him off waivers?

Yep. Coach Nate did a really good job in investing the defensive gameplan around Bogey - him fronting Lebron and providing back help, etc. More indictments against Scotty when last year it seemed Bogey couldn't defend anyone.

To be fair, Bledsoe probably thinks it's a ghost on the court or something. If he saw guys stealing the ball or intercepting his passes before it happened, they wouldn't wind up being turnovers in the first place. And Bledsoe clearly on the other end of the court as Celtics are enjoying the layup line. He probably hasn't even seen Rozier at all this series.

He crossed him pretty good in game 1 of the series for that go ahead 3 that was almost a game winner until Middleton hit that 3.

Shoelaces will do that to you, damn things keep tripping you up. He probably thinks Rozier is just another Dante Cunningham - a made up name and fictional player designed to deceive the masses. How wrong he is.

The pelicans just keep rolling without cousins. They are a nightmare matchup for Portland. They have guys who can play tough man d on Lillard and CJ and if they get beat the Brow is waiting. He has been the best player in the league since cousins went down.

Edit: just got done watching game 2. What a great game. Holiday came up huge. They are playing him at the 2 and it is working well.

It was a tie game late and the Pels just outhustled them to close it.out.

Heat and 76ers are evenly matched so far. Very entertaining game.

Turned into a 20-point blowout. Belinelli with 21 points and 5 assists on 4-8 from 3pt in 33 minutes and Ilyasova with 8pts off the bench. Thank God we have Sessions. :nonono:

Yeah Beli or Ersan could have helped. But neither give you anything defensively...

Blazers are getting swept by the Pelicans. It kind of reminds me of the Wizards-Raptors 2015 series
