He is a nice piece, a jack of all trades but he certainly not an elite scorer and certainly not capable of averaging freaking 20ppg for a series let alone 30.
Not a fan of either teams but its clear that Celtics have the more overall talent. Those heat white boys are going to get wrekt on the perimeter by the likes of Tatum, Brown, Smart, Kemba and Hayward. This isn't the bucks trouting out the likes of wesley matthews, george hill, eric bledsoe...and whatever else they have on their wing. Oh, how could I forget, they also have the ever so overrated Khris Middleton. Bucks just didn't have the personnel to attack the mediocre heat defender, and when Middelton was able to force switches in G4, he ate those boys alive.
Also, LOL at daniel theis being a dollar store Chris Anderson. Dudes better player than Anderson ever was and Heat fans are in for a rude awakening if they think Bam is going to dominate this matchup. He is absolutely not.
Lastly, while Jimmy Buckets is a nice player and all... he had 2 big scoring games against the bucks and then 3 very average to below average games for an all star player. Tatum is clearly and easily the better player and we'll all see soon.
Good luck to both teams, they only playing to see who gets massacred by the Lakers in the finals.
Dude, you are seriously talking like Bam who just turned 23, barely played any minutes his first two years in the league, and is now an all star after playing his first full season in the starting line up as if he has already hit his ceiling. No, he isn't going to carry the team on hia back offensively this series, but he doesn't need to.
He was one of the only guys all season who could contain Giannis 1on1 at all, but you don't see his high value? Dude averaged over 5 assists per game as a big man, 16 points a game which is nothing to sneeze at while playing world beating defense. And you're saying people are over hyping him..
Also, where was the Heat getting torched from the perimeter by the Celtics this game? (After going 1/10 or 11 in the 3rd quarter.) The Heat shot the 3 ball at a higher clip thaln the Celtics did overall in FG%. Where was the supposedly "elite" perimeter defense we were all told about?
Heat played better defense this game.
