There was a chunk of the season where they were dominant. They have looked like that team since gm2 against grizz.

Plus we have to judge guys off of the now. Spida thus postseason has been better than Kawai and its not even close.

to pick up that kind of talent, you need to do lot of home work. But its easy to go after shiny objects like DS and Trez.


Jackson CHOSE the Clips as a buyout guy last year. More likely he wanted to stay on the Clips as opposed to us not trying to find bargain basement deals. Clips IIRC now will have early bird rights on him after 2 seasons of service on the Clips.

While I don’t think the Jazz will blow this 2-0 lead, the Clippers aren’t the team from last year that is just gonna roll over either. If somehow the Clippers win the next 2 games I think they can win the series. Fortunately for Utah they seem to have that killer instinct that a lot of championship teams have and I can’t see them losing 2 in a row.

Am not sure they are historically best 3pt. If i remember corrrectly, clips lead the nba in 3pt shooting %.

Clarskson shooting more than 50% from 3 in last 2 games. His season avg is 38%. You think he will hold?

Uh, yeah.

Utah has a 2-0 lead and is going somewhere where the Clippers have only won once in 4 tries this postseason.

I know it hurts to hear that your team is down 0-2, but yes I'd feel comfortable if I was Utah.

He's huge buddies with PG and wanted to join him; the Lakers were never a choice.

Jackson chose his BFF Paul George to play with

You think Jackson scores 29 points again?... Jackson was the reason game 2 was not a blow out... Also PG did pad his stats at the end there.

I be feeling good If I were the Jazz... They only have to win 1 in LA... Even if they lose both they are going home in that hostile crowd game 5.

Yeah, i'm feeling pretty great right now if i'm the Jazz.. They have looked like the clear better team for both games which is all you can really ask for. I don't think the series is over by any stretch right now but if the Jazz take game 3 in LA it's over imo.

You can make the case about role players on either team possibly playing better or worse but in a series like this it usually always comes down to the superstars and right now Mitchell has been far and away the best player in this series and it hasn't been even close thus far. For the Clips to have a chance Kawhi or PG13 ( ) have to be the best player for the next few imo. PG13 especially though has been absolutely pathetic for much of the 2 games so far. All that talk and chest pounding leading to a trash Playoff performance yet again.

As far as overperforming role players go though I see Jackson coming back down to earth before Clarkson who was the 6thMOTY for a reason.

you are correct, they MADE the most per game. Doesnt mean they are the best.

Atlanta not having a legitimate second option hurts them. Easy to neutralize shooters if no one (with the exception of young) can create for them.

"From that angle you can't tell if he tripped or not"

While replay clearly shows Embiid tripping on his own feet.

I love Hubie but he's missing all these simple observations.

Defensively and just overall there’s not really a comparison but stylistically Booker is so similar to Kobe. He not only took a lot of his moves but he really got the footwork down so they look just as good.

Yea I think I said that in my first post, but some of those buckets can be taken for granted. Every hook, flip shot he has he’s making.

For real. Seeing Luka, Trae, Mitchell, Booker and Ja just torching teams has been great. It’ll be even better next year when Jokic gets Murray back.

Side note, MPJ seems to have runaway in the MPJ vs Kuzma debate.
