And games like that will happen again, but you need 50%+ wins for the playoffs. You know that something is wrong just with looking at their starting 5 yesterday. 3 of them are bench warmers in any serious team. I don’t believe there’s anybody in Nba, who can win alone against a team with great shooting night, if the rest of the team is shooting 30% Fg.
I was under the impression that Luka is supposed to make those around him look better. It's not a coincidence role players stop hitting shots once the star is playing hero ball. I'm sure Luka will revert to a more team-oriented player after the All-Star break though.
That is a horrible take, my man.
I can smell the bitterness from here.
You clearly did not watch the game. Luka was passing the ball all night long. In fact, I am urging him to be more selfish at times; he should have dominated that ball Harden style after seeing how his teammates missed wide open 3s and layups. Justin Jackson alone missed 2 layups 3 minutes apart.
His only hero ball moment was his brain fart in the end - which of course, is what some people conveniently remember.
No bitterness, my man. I'm not a players fan, more of a team fan and Luka is not playing a team-oriented BB right now. He can change it anytime though, being they didn't teach him to play this way in Europe. That's what makes him unique I guess, being able to play different styles of basketball.
His last shot was not even that surprising. In LA game you knew he'll try to score on Lebron on the next play after the 3 in his face. In both cases he could have played it smarter, but he preferred hero ball. His character is the reason what he's right know, a great bb player, but certainly didn't help in those situations.
