Bron is better than Giannis but difference is you can’t breathe on Giannis when he drives since he yells like he gets shot.

And it’ll only be worse in the playoffs when the NBA tries to push their Bucks-Lakers agenda

OG is lowkey going to do a great job of filling in that defensive hole that Kawhi left...he can def give guys like Lebron and Giannis a hard time, but of course you'll still have Gasol and others coming for the double team

The "wall defense" will be used again against the Bucks.

Lol what? There's like an 33 minute video of Raptors locking Giannis down.


Yes with Kawhi as the primary defender who can match up much better from a strength perspective. Giannis has clearly improved too.

Ogugua Leonard, Kawhi's younger brother?

Only other Ogugua I know of averages 10points a game and isn't ready to have the offense run through him

Be on the look out for Bubble Ogugua...this guy has been working on his game.



The BOG will destroy Giannis and win MVP this season, book it

You need to throw multiple bodies at Giannis. Last year it took the combined effort of Kawhi and Gasol to bother him. OG by himself is not doing that, as much as I'd like that to he the case.

They don't have to worry or gameplan vs the Raptors until the finals.

They played hard a few quarters but are saving the full effort and health for the west teams.

You can disagree with me that's ok

Eastern Conference playoffs 2nd round is going to be fun as hell to watch, assuming the favorites win in 1st round,

Bucks vs Heat - where MIA has defended Giannis and the Bucks better than any team this year

Raptors vs Celtics - Toss up with two pretty evenly matched teams

Kawhi might have been the primary defender but he still had great help defense... Raps might have the best help defense in the league it's insane how good it is. Mostly because players spurt like crazy. Also Gasol is still there...A player i personally think did more to hinder Giannis than Kawhi.

Wasn't there stories of Lebron having secret workouts with his teammates during the countrywide quarantine?

Unlike other teams the Raptors have a different game plan for every single game. Also this game plan you saw tonight will only be one of many approaches Nurse will use if and when we meet in the finals. It's how he rolls. also why he's the best coach in the league.


Impressive

Raptors eliminated Giannis in the playoffs without Kawhi too lets not forget.

Putting CJ Miles on Kevin Love also probably didn't help either


I could honestly do without that ever being brought up again.

Lakers had a lot of open shots, esp on pass-outs by Lebron. and they bricked everything. was just one of those games.
