    I like the idea of being able to pair Jax with another C on the floor as it really works in some matchups. Would like to see him continue to expand his range as his activity is such a nice addition to the game.

    Another great game from Kira even having to deal with multiple screens and a bigger guy. Ended tonight with 3 steals.

    I wish yall would stop begging for a top 5 pick.

    When that player comes into the league and doesn't become an instant all-star, you'll just complain that this team has too many young players and Griff is bad at drafting. You already did that to Jax early this year.

    Be happy the youth already on the team is promising and they can win.

    Well done Stan !
    Amazing what this team can do when they play team defence like Stan has been preaching from day one.
    Just another Kiwi basking in the reflected glory of Steven Adams....bask bask...

    Big nights around the league:

    Zion: 37/15/8
    Tatum: 53/10/4
    Towns: 30/11/7
    LaVine: 50/8/5
    Trae: 42/8/9
    Jokic: 20/11/11 (still a quarter to go)
    Cade Cunningham/Usman Garuba/Scottie Barnes/Moses Moody/Corey Kispert endorser.

    Eye test people: analytics people watch more basketball than you do.

    Oh and Steven Adams proved his worth tonight.

    The Adams bashers just gonna have to punch air on this one.

    Embiid back on the court shooting after the game.

    Big fella frustrated tonight.

    I'm afraid I'm punching; love the guy, but he's still a horrible fit.
    Disclaimer: I would never denigrate or defame Zion Williamson as a man or as a basketball player; he will go down as an NBA great and perhaps a Top 10+ player of all time. Any inference derived from any of my posts to the contrary is your mischaracterization of my words, or a sign of insecurity on your part (perhaps both).

    Respectfully,

    AISI

    I can't wait to see him in a less condensed season with more rest with ample back up to keep him around 22-27 minutes a night..

    You can go searching for Unicorns, but I promise you that it's not easy.

    If KAT demands a trade. Maybe.

    the main reason i want us to make the playoffs is because we play up to the level of the competition......i dont think we would get swept by anyone in the playoffs if we are healthy......we could win a series if coach and players be on the same page and dont crack under the pressure....

    Yep. Held Embiid to 14/9 on 5 of 16 shooting.

    Adams scored 7/5 and team high 3 steals and 3 blocks.

    Same, I think that less minutes is key for same reason, when he is fresh it makes a big difference.

    Zion stats this year against elite defenses:

    Number 1 Defense - LA Lakers:
    - 21/12/4 on 47.4%FG
    - 27/9/5 on 69.2%FG

    Number 2 Defense - Philadelphia 76ers
    - 37/15/8 on 53.6%FG

    Number 4 Defense - Utah Jazz
    - 32/5/3 on 72.7%FG
    - 27/3/4 on 64.3%FG
    - 26/10/5 on 58.8%FG

    Number 5 Defense - Phoenix Suns
    - 20/2/0 on 69.2%FG
    - 28/7/6 on 85.7%FG
    - 23/5/4 on 72.7%FG

    Number 6 Defense - Miami Heat
    - 32/14/1 on 55%FG
    - 21/9/7 on 53.8%FG

    Number 7 Defense - Memphis Grizzlies
    - 29/4/5 on 71.4%FG
    - 31/7/6 on 81.3%FG

    This is just absurd stuff. He's not just feasting on bottom feeders, every single time we face up to an elite team he does this.

    Funnily enough his 3 least efficient games of the season (the only 3 where he's shot below 45%) came against the 11th, 25th, and 27th ranked defenses respectively.

    You'll note that there are no stats provided for the Number 3 defense. Simple reason why: that's the Knicks and we haven't played them yet.

    Wow. Thank you, Wiza.....Westbrook.....Wizbrooks.

    And Knicks and Nuggs.

    Great night all around.

    PSA: Not a single elite poster or pels "insider" predicted the Cousins trade, Jrue to the Bucks, or the Adams trade. They didn't know about the Adams extension before Woj and Shams reported it and no one connected us to Kira Lewis in the draft.

    Because there ARE no elite posters/insiders. We're all equals in Pels Fandom.

    I was really surprised how well the lineup of two centers, two power forwards and one guard played especially considering today’s nba. I am very impressed with Jax improvements on both sides of the floor as well as with his desire to compete now

    Against the Sixers, that can work. They, ironically, are a very good matchup for our weaknesses. They cant shoot and want to own the paint. And since we are built like a 90s team, we can play with them. I would rather play Philly in a series than say Chicago, even though Philly is clearly the better team. I wouldnt get too excited about last night. That was a good matchup. We didnt improve our defense, we just ran into another team that thinks its the 90s

    I agree 100%. Very useful vet on both ends of the floor. Huge improvement from Melli
