Wolves offense is often quite chaotic. When Ant is hot and has the ball, own players are not clearing out the path fast enough.

Kyrie is a garbage human being, but man, he is a sick basketball player.

Ant-Man’s shrunk at the end of every one of these games.

Dallas has the two best players left In the playoffs.

SVG called Kyrie and Luka the most offensively talented back court in history and I gotta agree

I'd love to see Luka blow a 3-0 lead. He'd never live it down. Of course it would cement the Ant/MJ narrative also but I'd be fine with that as the price to see Luka choke and become defined by that.

Tell me there wouldn't be a 50/50 shot Luka shows up to training camp over 300 pounds, totally dejected. Starts getting technicals for sparking cigs on the bench.

He would hit that step back at 400 pounds and still be more fresh than Edwards to close out a game.

thought ant was gonna go there for a minute - just shrunk back into regularity tho - btw - dallas is winning the championship - i know this for certain because i was watching them play in early May

i had some really good weed - i watched and they were a completely different team - i think it has more to do with kyrie and kidd and the trades before the deadline than it does luka - but it doesn't matter

last but not least - lively and gafford - personally i think jokic would minimize these two but boston can't - nobody remaining can

The rule is, when you keep it close to the end, the aggregate star power difference makes the outcome difference; as evidenced in all the series so far. Suns' problem is, their defensive woes wouldn't have given them any chance to last till the final min.
So, nothing suprising today.:cool:

and somehow the spiritual defacto leader of the team - gets luka to relax and lively play possessed - wtf
I don’t think Irving is a garbage human. I don’t know much about him before he came to Dallas. But since he has been in Dallas he has turned the team around as the leader of that team.
