    they can shift to 2-3-2 if needed. but I'm not as sympathetic to travel concerns when these series take so long to complete cause there are always multiple days between games

    6 turnovers on 24 assists is still a 4/1 assist to turnover ratio.

    truly fascinating. on the one hand, this “make Antetokuonmpo beat you” strategy hasn’t exactly failed anyone in the past, but i’d be very surprised if this is exactly what Brooklyn plays in a series, having Jordan as the primary. they’ll definitely be sending different types of looks/doubles/zones. but i think he’ll be able to make plays against those

    ^ Miami’s defense is just as inconsistent as Dallas’ offense, so weird

    second straight game Griffin at the 5 has been a disaster in the fourth quarter. some of it is on Irving though, getting beat way too easily by Holiday on drives

    clutch threes raining for New Orleans/Golden State!!

    The last two minutes of the game the other night looked like a team that's had enough this year. NO is probably too far back to catch them but they looked over it

    blows my mind that Clippers aren’t trying to tank to 4th knowing the Lakers likely won’t finish 5th or higher. but hey good win i guess? getting their rhythm with Leonard getting more run

    I'm glad that Shams and The Athletic put out that piece that says the Deer will part ways with Bud without a deep playoff run. He has done a nice job with adjustments this season and is hopefully quicker to make them in the postseason, and the team chemistry seems great, but it's nice to know they're going to make him shoulder some accountability moving forward.

    Re: The NBA Thread

    ^ that piece just came across my feed

    I’m fine with letting Budenholzer go as long as his replacement is an up and comer. Had I known who Daigneault and Finch were at the beginning of the year, they’re clearly a much more interesting look as your next dynasty coach even without being unproven. The one “proven loser” I’d bring back as any NBA team would be Joerger and his no nonsense/running style

    I think Budenholzer has been given a fair shot to “fix” his issues this year. His problem is that what makes him a good NBA coach is his rigid system, which turns average teams into 60-win teams. But yeah, adjustments are in issue. That said the coaches to take him down recently are Spoelstra and Nurse, the top 2 coaches in the NBA. i do like the little flashes of creativity from Milwaukee this year


    Stotts, obvious firing there. 9 years and they need a new voice. and he’s topped it all off with one of the worst defenses the league has ever seen this year AFTER getting Covington and Jones

    Bjorkgren, I think he shouldn’t be fired but he’s clearly not shown anything interesting other than being a Nurse philosophical carbon copy, and by all accounts without Nurse’s leadership and chemistry with his team. that said he’s missing his starting SF and he’s stuck with a “franchise player” that everyone/ownership thinks is good but isn’t

    Brooks and Walton obviously the worst two coaches in the league next to Bickerstaff, so some lazy writing there by Sharania/Amick
