    I just bought the EuroLeague Final 4 Package so I can watch Doncic live. https://www.euroleague.tv

    I'm very much on the "Draft DeAndre Ayton" bandwagon, but I think it's good to be as informed on Doncic as possible, especially because I don't know for certain that McDonough agrees with me on Ayton.

    Today at noon (or 1pm?...I've seen conflicting reports), Luka Doncic plays one of the biggest games of his life so far. I'm excited to see how it goes!

    Seems to be a fair and balanced write-up

    So will this be televised or streamed for free? It's said you can pay to watch it live, but is there a free option after the fact? Like an ESPNU at 3am or something or some website?

    I believe it's also on NBA TV (http://www.nba.com/nbatv/schedule), but my cable guide shows something else at that time.

    Sarver is there. That should make Cheesy feel good.

    Real Madrid is up by 1 at the half.

    A few observations on Doncic:

    • He has 10 points on 3/6 shooting, as well as 2 assists.
    • He has made a couple nice plays on defense.
    • I don't get the athleticism concerns at all. He's not Vince Carter, but when you combine his size, strength, and motor he looks like a standout athlete out there to me.
    • Doncic plays off the ball when Sergio Llull is in the game. When Llull is out, Doncic runs the point.
    • Overall, I've been very impressed, but it's worth noting that Real Madrid had their best run with Doncic on the bench. It was 30-20 CSKA after the 1st. Doncic sat for about five minutes and returned with Real Madrid up 1. So he's a -9 for the first half.
    • I would say my opinion of Doncic has gone up slightly based on the first half.

    Was someone else on the bench on the other side to give Real an advantage?

    Jaycee Carroll caught fire from three.

    Doncic is playing point guard for the second half so far. Real Madrid up by 3.

    Doncic just hit a 3 to put Real Madrid up by 9. Continues to bring the ball up the court as the point guard. Not sure why Llull isn't playing in the second half.

    Doncic has 13 points, 4 rebounds, 2 assists, and a steal. He is the leading scorer.

    He looks really fast for his size and pushes the ball aggressively in transition.

    Doncic goes to the bench at the end of the third with Real Madrid up by 7. He was the point guard for the entire third quarter and looked good. CSKA has missed 1 free throw and Real Madrid has missed 10; otherwise they would be up more. Doncic starts the 4th on the bench; the announcers are very impressed with his performance.

    For those that have NBA TV, this is a good game. Real Madrid up by 4 with nine minutes to go.
