well, too bad, that’s who it is going to be.
The Jazz could be the best team in the NBA. Suns are 3-0 against Utah beating them with and without Mike Conley.
At least the Suns have a blueprint of how to win.
I'm not looking past Denver though.
The one thing that worries me about the Jazz - in those three games we played them - I can remember in at least 2 of them they shot very poorly from 3 and the suns still barely won.
I am looking past Denver, only way suns lose to them is if we lose multiple players to injury.
I'm hoping the Suns defense had something to do with those wins.
However, those victories only tell me the Suns are capable of beating the Jazz in a series... nothing more.
Man, Donovan Mitchell is on another level right now. A Jazz matchup scares me, they are disciplined on defense and share the ball on offense. They can get 3 happy, and potentially soft in the mid range on defense, but it will be a dogfight.
They scare me more with Conley out. It seems they move the ball more without him. Its not his fault, he's a decent facilitator but without him Mitchell takes over as PG and he's more willing to pass since he knows he'll have it every possession. I'm surprised they didn't make him their full-time PG after losing Rubio because he seems to play better there. Find a good 3&D combo guard to pair with him.
What I love both about the Jazz and Suns are the way they play the game. Balanced offense/defense.
you watch the Nets and they don’t play much D. I watched the Nets bucks game yesterday and was not that impressed with Giannis. He passes up a lot of good midrange shots to go for contested shots at the rim.
Durant is the scary player in that series.
I've always been a fan of how the Jazz play going back to the Jerry Sloan days. They are a good team to pattern for consistency.
Look, there are only 8 teams left playing. They all should be good. No one is likely to be a cakewalk at this juncture.
I heard a stat today, in 74 shots taken in playoffs with 0-2 dribbles he’s shooting 64%. In 75 shots taken with 3+ dribbles he’s shooting 36%. And he’s been abysmal from 3. He’s a classic case of dude, know who you are.
This is what makes playoff basketball great. Even the adjustments.
That Nets/Bucks game with the defensive adjustments. Wow.
PG13 looking very G rated in this series.
Embiid is playing great, but man, it looks like he’s miserable and laboring on that knee.
The 76ers have come alive tonight and lead Atlanta 95-75 at the end of 3rd.
