Anyone watching end of Warriors Raptors? Or at least what I thought was the end. The superstars Laker target free agents are living up to what you'd want to see on the Lakers. Great duel between the two, neither backing down. Man. Fun 4th. Kawhi v KD mano a mano. Dash of Lowry, more of Klay. Bit players for Warriors stepping up, for Raps kinda looking nervous.

Raptors besides Kawhi at the end of the 4th had the same look they did vs Lebron in playoffs...anxious and scared.

Has there ever been a team to have 3 different guys drop 50 in one season?

Question might be 3 different guys drop 50 in one season...twice. It's early.

The Lakers

1961/62 season Baylor/West/ and a player named Rudy LaRusso (with whom I'm not familiar, I'll have to look him up)

I saw this on the Twitters this evening

Mudiay starting to find his game in his 4th season at 22 years old. Things do seem to take time.

I will never understand this cat....so much talent, but have never been able to put it together....(for the record, that was his only FG on the night).

Hezonja's biggest problem was that his years of development went to waste on the Magic.

Mudiay's seeming to finally start to understand the game though at 22

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5fcQd-T6TSU

He improved his jump shot and is starting to get strong enough to do some of the finishing he was known for in high school and improved his explosiveness

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jfq43EheWuQ (2:36)


Fizdale being the only one that's believed in him as of late seems to have boosted his confidence, so hopefully he continues to build on it. He's got the talent, now it's about putting it all together, and having a coach that believes in you can do wonders.

If the Pistons progress ahead of schedule or end up adding a 3rd star to the team, that’s another team that can challenge the EC, very exciting season for basketball fans

Never seen anything like it, so many teams popping up and doing better then expected that’s the crazy part IMO.

If I was the AD at a school considering making a change in coaches....I would jump on Hoiberg....he was a great college coach. I think it is just where his style belongs.

Might not seem fair, but for unproven coaches, injuries is where you either prove your worth or lose your job. Think about it, if you can only win with good players all in good health, then how do I truly know how good you are? I don't, but because we're winning, there is nothing to fix, status quo maintain, you keep your job. Most coaches can perform when everything is fine. When there is adversity, management gets to see if there is something extra in you. And if there isn't then you're no different than a handful of other coaches who can perform well when everything is in optimal condition. So they have nothing to lose in firing you because the next guy they hire is at least as good as you.

Yeah I don’t watch the college game but that’s what I’ve always heard was he was an excellent college level coach. And the Bulls organization is apparently crazy so yeah

Speaking of crazy, Trae Young’s hair is a masterpiece of confusion. Lol

I think if I were a Pelicans fan, I would be so exasperated with the coaching. Julius Randle benched in crunch, and AD playing second fiddle to Holiday. It's all Jrue down the stretch.

Julius fouled out. He picked up two dumb fouls down the stretch and that ruined their momentum

I was just about to say that.


The coach was running the ball through Holiday instead of AD
