Dubs smash!! (Sorry Orlando)
Wiggins gets his Klaynadian passport, Warriors just too much
The Golden State Warriors put the hammer down, and easily took care of the Orlando Magic at home. After losing two of their last three games, many suspected a big night was ahead - especially against an Orlando team with more holes than the US tax code.
Stephen Curry is now just 17 threes away from setting a new record, setting himself for the combo meal game where he could pass both Ray Allen (career) and Klay Thompson (single game) in the record book. I’m here for it.
Wiggins was absolutely magical tonight too. I’m sure we’ll be hearing more about his game tomorrow.
Wiggins got hot? Curry cooked… what else could you possible want?
Oh? A Kuminga sighting? Yeah, they had that for us, too.
As always, this is just a short fresh thread for the community to party in. We will be back with our normal top notch coverage tomorrow!
Wish we would use kuminga as more of a bigman his rookie season and keep things simple for him, let him post down low, iso from the high post, get cut actions and set screens, he could be great as the post man in the split action, instead they keep iso'n him and running PnRs through him.
Seems like a similar list mistake to last year where we were posting wiseman yo and running high post actions for him instead of letting him just be the roll man and spot up on the 3pt line
Layups and 3s used to be an easy predictor of team success. That’s not the case anymore. Why did that relationship disappear? And where is this evolution leading?
The difference between the modern NBA and previous eras isn’t where stars shoot. Instead, it’s that “teams have gotten much smarter about role players not taking bad shots,” the lead analyst says.
Offensive success “always was more tied to your personnel than your types of shots,” the lead analyst says, “but it was easier to overcome your personnel before, and now it’s become more difficult to do that.”
