I'm going to at dinner for part or all of game 1 of Sixers-Raptors. What's the best way to watch it on your phone? ESPN app?

last I heard it doesn’t sound likely that luka will be playing the majority of the first round series, if at all. I have a hard time seeing the mavs beating the jazz without him, notwithstanding jazz cowardice

i think he will rise on the third day and save the mavs from their sins (of being bad at basketball without him)

Yup Brunson and Conley are two of the most prolific floater guys in the league

Kat used to shy away from contact now he’s doing bully ball that seems like a big deal. Really impressive game from the kids

jammin on the dud (Spottie), Saturday, 16 April 2022 23:12 (one month ago) link

Yes he's pretty much better inside this year, it's unlocked a lot of things for him, this is much more the game in, game out KAT this season than the Clippers game

I don't know...this team is good?

Ant could really be an X factor in these playoffs

not ideal.

meanwhile tatum's stat line will not be beautiful but he was doing basically everything on offense for most of the game.

almost exactly the inverse of game 1

The Heat led the league in 3pt percentage on these types of shots in the regular season at 37.3%

was thinking maybe the wrong guys were taking them and obv i dont know which are the semi contested threes but strus 0-7 vincent 1-7 robinson 3-10

lag∞n, Thursday, 26 May 2022 13:50 (yesterday) link

they shot some insane bricks last night too lol

lag∞n, Thursday, 26 May 2022 13:51 (yesterday) link

tracking data tbf is a bit suspect cause when youre playing a good defensive team they speed you up and make you take weird shots maybe you get a semi contested look but you prob had to rush to get it and its not in your preferred spot the pass wasnt precise youre tired and beat up and so forth

lag∞n, Thursday, 26 May 2022 13:55 (yesterday) link

wld be interesting to see what teams do internally with that data i bet they have some real nice stuff

lag∞n, Thursday, 26 May 2022 13:55 (yesterday) link

yeah you would expect most semi-contests are on catch and shoots when someone flies out to the shooter late so that would def be many of the strus and vincent shots.

― lag∞n, Thursday, May 26, 2022 8:51 AM (one hour ago) bookmarkflaglink

yeah it wasn't like the Bucks series where the shots were just clanging off the rim these were Westbrook-style misses

frogbs, Thursday, 26 May 2022 15:03 (yesterday) link

butler can't jump and is pointedly avoiding contact, lowry has been dragging a leg around all playoffs, herro was out and strus was getting treated in the locker room too. i don't think it's a huge shock that they're having trouble scoring against the no 1 defense in the league. not taking anything away from the celtics but it's not like it's some some huge mystery what's going on. if your whole offense in the east finals is gabe vincent, duncan robinson, PJ tucker and bam you're gonna score... 80 points

J0rdan S., Thursday, 26 May 2022 17:44 (yesterday) link

no that is not heat culture

lag∞n, Thursday, 26 May 2022 18:34 (yesterday) link

Otto out tonight. warriors gonna be relying on some shaky players tonight. top 6 is locked in but after that you just have no idea what youre gonna get. i think i trust moody the most at this point.

Spottie, Thursday, 26 May 2022 18:54 (yesterday) link

plus you got scott foster looking to extend the series
