How?That is not what you said. This is what I replied to: "Not really. He really has not played to his standard. Look at his shooting percentage." You are moving the goalposts. BTW Durant was 39/9/9.
I have no idea. He pretty much sleep walked tonight. I really didn't think he would do that in the playoffs.
This. He isn’t going to keep shooting at this clip. Durant drew double teams even on the shots he missed. If he stops shooting then all of the sudden nobody thinks he is a threat. 100% he need to keep shooting.
Amazing Booker scores 47 points and opponents only fouled him once or so the refs thought.Booker with the only 2 free throws for the entire Suns team outside of KD
He was fine IMO. Terrible start going 1-8, but then he finished 11-23 and honestly kept us in the game single-handedly at points in the game by continuing to get to the line. 39 points after that rough start is tremendous.Durant needs to shoot better or shoot less. Yes, 39 points is good but he shot 12-31 from the field. That's way too many misses and they weren't exactly bad shots. He was just off.
So is getting to the free throw line. If not for Durant we would have zero free throws and been blown out. It’s really important for teams to recognize him as a threat to draw people away from Booker like it did tonight. Booker had a ton of lanes open tonight.
He hit 56% on the year. 4 time scoring champion. I can say with confidence they will start to fall.In the regular season, I agree but when the season is on the line like it was tonight? He needed to pass out a little more. All good we got the win despite his poor shooting but we won't be that lucky often.
Payne did just well enough. He pushed the energy to start the game. He got into Jokic’s space a couple of times, his nuts, he tried to take a charge on a pass, then he tried for another charge on a Jokic floater.
