"If it's not working you gotta try something completely different. How about on the injury side harrison will barton. Pj dosier are we getting any closer to those guys. I kind of felt like we might see barton in this two game. Swing here against portland on the road. Yeah barton's getting real close I think he's getting really close. I i wouldn't be surprised if he's available in one of these next couple games maybe game four maybe game five dosier. I would be surprised if he came back in this series maybe if denver advances but if they get barton back yeah expect them to come off the bench definitely initially and look if he can shoot the ball. I mean that's that's one more shooter Like i said if they do choose to double yolks which the game plan and make the nuggets role players. Hit shots tiresome. What are you working on. Forest man that we can check out. I'm sure some aftermath but also gearing up for for. Hey an early game tomorrow afternoon. Yeah i mean. I published a little rundown of what austin rivers did last night. And just kinda big into this guy was humbled and i think he genuinely reassess just who he is as a person you know and as a player because that's kind of what was preventing him from latching onto a teams out questions about his character and i think he's a totally changed person because of it. I believe it. And i mean good things come to people who buy into the process and our patient and that's what he's done in denver so i think game free for him of all deserved. That's what i wrote about on dvd and vr. Right now awesome in. We'll we'll be sure to check that out. Always appreciate you and hey up to one. Nuggets can take complete control if they can find a way to get a w. tomorrow afternoon. Yeah can't wait. Thank brady predate harrison wind. Dnv are nuggets. Denver finds a way to get it. Done what a big big win last night. Your thoughts on that one. If you guys want to chime in on the first advantage text line nine seven four. Seven eight thirteen o.

"No doubt well said he's very fun to listen to. But of course more importantly for the nuggets finding a way to get it done and kind of reclaim that homecourt advantage last night. you brought up. Michael porter. Jr. let's go there harrison. Fifteen points had a nice surge in the second. But i believe the next step and correct me. If i'm wrong the next step for porter will be to to become a shot creator whether that's ball handling. Or what have you because they are. They're game planning around him. They're trying to take him completely out of the game. Kodaly totally and offensively. I think he's just gotta be stronger with the ball like this. The playoff physicality is up. The intensity is up. They call less valid than they do in the regular season guys are gonna get into. You guys are going to be aggressive with you. Try to get into your head. You just gotta own that. He's just gotta step it up in that regard. Be stronger with the ball. Be more forceful physical and it will come. is a process. I mean he is way ahead of where he was last year in the playoffs and every game that he plays we'll be valuable valuable experience for him defensively. I thought he was bad last night. And i expect portland's they continue to try to take on him on the pick and roll. That's gotta be like their best strategy heading into game four. I'm not sure. What other adjustments terrorist outs can even make at this point. But i've gotta think continuing to go up. Quarter will be high on coils game plan harrison win joining us of. Dnv are nuggets and again yeah. That's that's what i like to see in playoffs. Though is matchups how guys adjust make those adjustments. Perla made those adjustments knowing. That was gonna try to throw everything at damian lillard lillard still had thirty seven points but but we can see that can't we in the nba. We can see a guy with thirty seven but we could also walk away and say they maintained him. I mean five of sixteen from three point line. He didn't absolutely destroy them. He had those surges though and again the nuggets find ways to contain those. Yeah definitely and i like under the pensive strategy on him kind of shadowing him with sock. You austin rivers a lot throughout the first half and then they're closer on him and the guy guarding a lot. Fourth quarters aaron gordon. I like that. Because it kinda keeps gordon out of foul trouble. You know if you put aaron gordon on Dame at the very start of the game you know. He could get into foul trouble now. It hurt you Three quarters later. So i like how denver's defending dame and you just gotta make it hard Denver's a great job of just forcing him as high up on the floor as possible. Bring big man up and not taking role so it's been a really good adjustment from denver. I think michael malone dares deserves a lot of credit. He's out coaching. Carry stopping the series. And now it's up to portland. The pressure is really on portland. Now you see you see nurk fouled out a now twice in a row. There's gotta be some frustration on that side. Officiating has been strange in this series. Although i thought last night maybe there are a few calls. That went the nuggets way. I mean sure it's going to happen. The playoffs With with nurkic. Though i think merkich might be portland's biggest x. Factor in this series for them to win this series great. He has to be the best version of himself. he's gotta play good defense on nicole..

"Twenty four seven pretty. Good percentage lillard was fifteen to thirty one five for sixteen shot. The ball shot the three ball. Sixteen times made five again. Five three-pointers is nice. But he's throwing it up in the air a lot. So thirty seven is a good stat. Line sure but when you look at the percentage compared to fifteen to thirty one for lillard twelve twenty four for joker joker shot seven last times then than lillard and only managed to miss three less baskets so the efficiency is there for nicole your kitchen. It also goes to see where he's taking shots again. Seven foot guy. He's gonna find his way all over the floor. Why now the reason. Mvp bad thing colefax. I got to watch this. I was happy you know direct. Tv good for me know. It's easy for me to say. Oh i but i do care about the rest of these fans what happened last night is absolute garbage. It gets blacked out in the area. It's not on any of the national networks. How do you have an mba playoffs schedule. First off on the national side and not have all of them have all of the games. But that's that's worse the number one thing. Where are you altitude. And i love our friends at altitude. Let me be clear. They have nothing to do with it. By the way the broadcasters and chris dempsey and all those guys we love and talk to colfax. Do you realize the denver market tv market altitude that is the tiniest tiniest blip on the radar for comcast and dish network. It is a tiny for all sports. Any basketball hockey. Tv station is a tiny blip for them. So it's take it or leave it. That's what we know fair or unfair. That's the way the world works man. They're making money either way and that's how it works. So when they went to altitude. Basically said yeah. This is what it's going to cost this year from my understanding and altitudes like no we like our product. Okay i'm all about valuing your product but at the end of the day you're not fighting for what it's all about your fans you have an mvp year man..

"He's got ways to go ballhandling not their meaning. He can't create create his own shot by utilizing a dribble. Kevin durant can so. I mean there are. Comparisons shooting is is certainly comparable the length the body make up those comparable but porter has yet to show that he can be a creator by using the tool. That is dribbling the basketball. He has some great headaches. Some great jab steps. He could've had mellow several times or at least once or twice in the air but porter doesn't have that yet porter's score man puertas a score. He doesn't think about getting fouled which is good and bad. It's good because what pure basketball should be you think about scoring basketball not about getting fouled but bad because puerto probably could have gone to the free throw line two three more times and maybe shooting three free throws so we're going to impact michael porter jr. a little bit later on but i mean ultimately there was no help it was nicola yokich porter had fifteen and i was the second best for the most part. Gordon had thirteen millsaps with five. Green with eight morris with eight all okay games but nobody was stepping up composite. Had eleven still really fun to watch it. Boards eight assists big numbers but as far as the point total. No one was there and you need another guy coming with you at the twenties and finally it was austin rivers who looked extremely hesitant before he's passing up open threes even when it gets guyana fake. He cuts around them wide open. Mid range shot from the corner nothing. He's passing it away. And then settles bad. Shot mike malone. Was you know he believes in this guy flat out believes in him. Here's mike malone on austin rivers and the nuggets resiliency in game three. Couldn't be happier for the kit. I'd just told that team think about this guy was sitting at home for two and a half months. Waiting.

"The heck is going on everybody. Outside jimmy butler just did not show up. That was. That was the question coming into the series. Is tyler hero. Gonna be tyler. Herro is drudge. Going to be dragged which targets has been a little. Bit of tyler heroes. Just the we mentioned your holiday the beginning of the season. Everybody was contemplating the jrue holiday packages for the new orleans. Pelicans would you trade him to denver. For michael porter. Jr. would you trade him to miami for tyler hero. The consensus was you know what maybe porter jr. would would be the player to go back. I think i'd want to keep hero. If i was the miami heat will obviously. It's flipped right out hero. Just not looking like anything like guy. But the biggest disappointment is bam He's frigging all star. And i guess that bubble was a. I mean you call this last year saying the heat just heads up and going there. The recipe was perfect in orlando. But i think that a four games that they had when they sweep last year against the indiana pacers in round one one of the first round sweeps. There's three first round sweeps last year. Totally forgot about that and that could happen again this year. I guess those four games really helped them. Just find find their place because it's tough to watch. It's just tough to watch all these guys who you expect to go third quarter. There was like thirty seconds of miami heat basketball right like you know. The driving drift was happening guys getting into the lane and finding guys in the corner a lot of movement and then it just stopped. It's so strange watching this team. Which is weird because they played so great down the stretch of the regular season. That's the other thing here. Everybody was like talking themselves into like he could win the series win the we'll they got the bucks number and i think it's a bit of both trae right. It's like the heat obviously especially ban. Even jimmy and a lot of these games definitely hear a lot of them not playing up to the capabilities that we know the plate and then on top of that the bucks looking and playing so much better than we've ever seen them or at least recently seen them of course in playoff series. And that's why we're getting twenty five thirty point blowouts. The bucks are on another level right now. Drew holidays been amazing for them. I mean you're upgrading from eric. Bledsoe to jrue holiday. I'm sorry like that is huge. I compared it on twitter to the raptors. Going from two rosenthal leonard. I got some hate responses. But i stand by because my god. Just the gap of where you're going in terms of these players in a playoff series is huge. But anyway what do you think of the is this the case of the bucks looking dominant and maybe going to be able to challenge the nets trae or is it the opposite as the heat just throwing up stinkers here left and right or is it somewhere in between in your opinion. It's probably in between. But i'm gonna give some credit to the bucks because i think janas has taken another step on his superstar journey because before game one tipped he was saying. I don't know if things are going to be different. You know how can how can i say. I'm wearing a shirt. That says be different but i don't know if they're going to be different. Turns out everything is different. He's pulling lebron here. Saying i don't know i don't know how things are going to go. And then they came out and the bucks have been smacking him because they play a different style of defense. They play a different style of offense. Yarmuth has been sticking jimmy which is real thrown off the heat's drive and kick game which is a big part of the way they get their three pointers and jimmy gets to the line. Things actually changed for the bucks. Obviously the eric bledsoe to drew holiday upgraded is a huge one. But i don't know the bucks have just been super impressive. They wanted this series. They never ran from it and they played coy with it. Saying maybe we won't beat them and then come out and straight up smack him impressive stuff you include game ones overtime period lead. The bucks won nine consecutive quarters in this series dot is tough to do just every once in a while. They'll be like twenty five to twenty four for the team even if they are getting killed in a game but excuse me milwaukee is just crushing them yet and we wanted to see convincing victory to see if they could potentially battle against the nets and i think we all sing that we sing convincing victory on both ends of the floor other than game one. And that's that's exactly what it is. A menace wasn't in the top three for mvp voting this season as far as the nba awards there. And maybe that's a good thing because maybe it's like you know what there's a little bit less pressure on him to perform and he's going they're doing well. I think putin holes so far has gotten everything wrought and you're seeing that in the results. Not the heat is certainly in these last two games even a chance. They're not get letting get clark putting it away early on and that's what championship. Caliber teams do is they. They really drop the hammer on those weaker teams but the other thing. I really want to take out of this game. We've had a couple of ugly incidents in the last few days. How good was at the miami heat county janas at the free throw line last night. I thought that was fantastic. Just getting into his Into his head. They're like that. That's the sort of stuff we want to see from fans having some fun out there trying to troll your opponent in a good natured white so keep that up my effective the fact that the fact that he was still there on the game Experience and trying to get back in. But that's fun that's great. That's really good stuff even though you team getting smacked you wanna have some fun out. There didn't work but grab key tasks this one over on the weekend. Is this a sweep in your opinion or do you still believe the heat have some fighting now. No no it's over. And i hope it's over for for miami's i'm sorry for milwaukee say because i want them to be fresh for the brooklyn nets when they sweep the celtics want them to to not have to go out and play a few extra games. Then we'll probably have this scenario where the second round starts before the first round. The first runs over with the hawks in the next Situation i did not remember this but last year. The four series in the eastern conference in the first round last year. There was only one extra game. There's three sweeps and a five game series box. Remember that we're and it was the bucks. Beat the magic at five and there is three sweeps. The wraps beat the nets The celtics swept the sixers and the swept. The pacers This one the hawks and the next is going to go live in five games but the other three series probably going to be sweeps. It's possible and they will. I guess they do in years prior. They sort of start up the next round like they're not gonna wait for the other series in their conference to completely end sir but yeah yeah because the because the hoax knicks could go seven and i mean that could be ten days for some of these things. The nets and buck series. Be done by the time the next time. We'll see now looking good for the heat. We can get into dissecting what they should've done maybe trading for some of these guys and maybe giving up tyler herro and some package deals. If those reported deals were true number. Hardin lowry Other ones like that. We'll get to them and of course we'll start looking ahead to bucks net second series my god. That should be amazing in the coming days probably like next week early next week. We'll wait to do that. No rush right now because we got some questions for you guys because we're one weekend questions for everybody in the team. Everybody listening later. Leave your comments below the youtube video or tweet a minute dunk one weekend. I want you to tell me who is your playoffs. Mvp right now. Who would you give it to if there was an actual award for this. Don't lee john mccain fantastic plaid..

"It always seems like jaanus is the one we're looking at right now. No matter how much he says yo might be standing milwaukee from a player's standpoint into that same question of are we waiting for a big fish too far players around the league even thinking about him as that. We need domino to fall before we can do anything. Are you guys as being like he's gonna stay put so we're probably going to get our our deals under normal circumstances i i i think deals will go quick the summer for everybody because i think teams just want to get their team. I think i think i i'm not a gm. So i'm just going from the outside. I think deals will go quick in a. They wanted their teams established as quick as possible. So guys can already start getting acclimated to each other. You know what. I mean like you. Just kinda wanna try to get set as possible. So that's that's what i suspect but who knows knows. I don't know it's gonna be crazy. Yeah i i've never seen. I mean the only thing closest thing i can think of this reality is just like the lockout i think rick was. It wasn't a rookie It was the when you were at duke but it just seemed like a just a a wild thing but i do want to talk about a. You did talk about the rockets. I want to talk about your time So far he says typically last season. It seemed like whenever i think about your you guys. He's in last year. It just seems like two chapters the chapter where you guys were a very balanced team and then it was the second chapter where you guys said fuck it. We're gonna go fool small ball. What were those two chapters like for you. It is interesting because as a player you kind of just have to sit back and just know your role and continue to you know. That's what i lock into such just all these decisions kind of made you know. I didn't know what i mean like. I'm not in that so we And our team was great. You know what i mean. I had a really really good team. And i love clint but then we wanted to play a small ball style. Which is appealing a lot of ways in his is hard to guard and we went with that and network to so many as things that We didn't win the championship but only won t one so it's like just because it. Did it work this year. Doesn't mean like that philosophy again. I'm not. I'm all for big. I love centers. I'll just saying. I don't think that method was was like a madness. Method of thought was smart as unique workman a but maybe maybe with different personnel maybe with different personnel and know different decisions being made. Who knows what. I mean but that's all you can do is just a part of it and just buy into because if you don't buy it and it's never gonna work right you know it means so no matter what philosophy whether we play small big ball. Whatever if i'm on a team. I gotta buy in bro. Otherwise i'm not going to give you my best and our team's not going to have the best chance of winning. Everybody has the buy it so well sure i mean i know i'm of the mind of maybe not going fool one way. No maybe not. Don't be too too big but also be too to too small right. And you want balance on your roster. Do you think i. I know i think the best. They're just just i don't care. How big is the best. Part that position you guys. Then you guys you guys at fill-in and guys are good teammates. And you've got you might have to get a guy that is okay playing five minutes a game. But it's going have good energy every day. Like does the whole different methods. Dr phil in your roster. You know what. I'm saying so small ball big bowl. I think you just try to find the best guys. And then you've got obviously go town get the best players so it's a hard task. It's not easy job when you guys. Were planning to lakers and you had to switch on onto bigs all the time. No how did that make you feel because you about like you got as tall as me. I'm not as big as you but you've got as tall as me. play guard. swiss seven footers. How was that experience guard. Ad and garden even dwight and all these people on switches. Like the way you did just gotta fight. Run down up down box out white. But when i got to push me under the room so easily you know. That's that's what we had to gang rebound. We did a pretty decent job. The lakers were just. I mean that was just really really big but I don't think that was the reason. They beat us beat us in other areas too. So is bad as they did. Kill some aboard. I don't think that was a defining reason why we lost it. Would you say it was the final reason why you lost it. Then i think a lot of things man suits starting with just Their team defense consistency. There always people talk about like eighty greatness in the lebron's of rightfully so but that team in general plays just really good defense. All the time eyebrow the weak sides always air helps is always air. They're always shifting always moving still one thing that people never talked about. The warriors team talked about their greatness in. You know the shooting guards and all that but that team defense was incredible. Ns that's that's what people don't understand wins championships to you. The teams all those great teams. The celtics minima celtics They all had great defensive teams man. You know what i mean. in the lakers do both row consistently not just when they're making shots they. They still depend when they're missing implying badly still defend. You know what i mean. There's a different everybody. Everybody defends when they're hitting shots. You know when you're when you're shooting you hit go down. Hardly everybody plays davis when you hitting shots but they just on a consistent basis are solid lead. That's why they were known anthony for a long time. does he. the best big league did he show that did he show that against you. Guys like how was that was useless. Who is who is okay. Even before he flew we played a who else in before this season. Who else is the job ahead of them. Curious wait. I personally you know what i mean. I personally i'm asking. I was asking. I personally believe that aids the best big in the league for sure. Yes i do but also who else would put. I don't even know who. I'm trying to think. I don't know if you consider. I mean you could consider jaanus a big. I don't know if you can consider. Because i consider lady. Maybe i consider joel center. Okay so you just best big big okay you jolla there. But he's not. I i eighty is the best big league and i will joel and yoga joe right behind him. Mogo yoga just right. Bon yokich is tough but jones. Right there two men. Judge joseph george jolson. Stop on the block. You got everything. And how was it in that bubble though right..

"austin rivers" Discussed on Skip and Shannon: Undisputed
"But he took a lot I. You know what? Absolutely and a lot of people feel that you know nepotism bet he's even in the league. Yeah. But I believe he's done enough. He carved out amid for himself. As you mentioned over eight years, he's averaged nine points a game. He's carved out a nice niche for himself. He had to be that way skill because everybody went at him a little a little tougher because they wanted to see Oh, you coach your son you gotTa Silver Spoon of your mind you're not that up in a way so he had to. Step up back down and he says, almost the occasion was skip. If you look at it, he played the most minutes. He's not going to get that opportunity he it'll be playing more minutes to hard more ministers. He got almost thirty four minutes yesterday, but he was phenomenal. He couldn't miss from the three early on and I was like. But if you give let James Harden, get thirty two and you let a guy come off the bench and get forty, one you you're probably GONNA lose okay I it. But that guy is not just a bench guy that guy believes himself and I think he could be invaluable to the rockets. There's going to be a night when Russ doesn't have it and maybe James that we've seen in. Albany. There's going to be a night when you're going to need fifteen or eighteen hot. Austin rivers and he is highly capable of providing that because he can create is only shot skills. If you saw last night, they were playing three and he durable. That left it. They let him finish the game to try to break forty and he starts driving up and under. That's what you need is like that with a lot of these guys get our catching shoot guys but he's a guy yet.

This was literally to teams who who say that the other dukedom Memphis insists that they always were talking about Marshon Brooks that they would have never done Dillon Brooks in a deal though, he's been injured. But you know, he was a second round pick two years ago. Oregon very different kind of player there. Marshon brooks. Marshon Brooks is close to thirty. And he's bounced around he's been in and out of the league. He's been overseas and back woodshed that things will work out for Trevor arisen Reza size a one year fifteen million dollar deal in Phoenix. They had overpay in the marketplace to get him on a one year deal. You take the money from a really bad team. And you weigh that versus taking probably half that stay in Houston or go to another contending team may be on their mid-level exception, and you're out of there before Christmas. So you got your money. Trevor REEs a very good defensive player.
Moving on from the 'John Wall Practice Altercation', what are the Wizards' options now?
"Broke a few hours before a number of reports on recent yelling matches during wizards practices hit the Twitter machine. I'm sure you guys saw this. Just to quickly touch on some of it. Bill reportedly blamed general manager, Ernie Grunfeld for this entire mess. It's been here seven years, and he's seen this for seven years. Two long wall reportedly f-bomb to Scott Brooks Kelly Oubre junior did the same thing. Austin rivers got into it with Bill wall got into it with Jeff green, Joe hells, Joe hose told yawn Muhima that is Christmas look ticky. Okay. I made the last one up Joe has really likes the Christmas lights that a y'all has up in his neighborhood. But this is crazy a fire sale could be on the horizon here. What do you do if you're the wizards? And I tell you something about these wizards and locks don't let them fool you. They're not cheap. What do you do? Then. He's right. Yeah. That's the part of the problem here, right? They have their fighting eleven and they're now saying, they're at least admitting they've looked in the mirror and said, okay. May we gotta do something. Here. We got to break up this core. Yeah. It's crazy because they have one hundred seventeen million committed next year. So there over the cap, but they also have ten free agents this coming off season. Thanks body. Marsha that? So So it's it's a. it's you gotta do one or the other. I mean, you really have to say to yourself. We haven't been good for a couple of years. I don't think John wall and his trade value are gonna go up this year. No matter what happens. And I think he's got to grow up somewhere else. I don't think it's going to happen in Washington. And again, if you treat Bradley Beal, I don't think that's blown it up. I think you have to trade John wall. I thought coming into the season we talked about Dwight Howard is that a good signing. I thought well, you know, what as far as the locker room goes can't get any worse will it has gotten worse, and you have to cut it off. Now. Now, you have to train them to any cost at any. I mean like because I would have to attach pick. You would think with some sort of incentive for team to take that for Johnny? You know is taking that contract is straight up. You gotta take a lot of junk back. Right. So maybe that's the
Could Lebron James win an Oscar before he wins a championship with the Lakers?
"Or may not win a championship with the Los Angeles Lakers. How 'bout this? I'll say LeBron James with an Oscar before he was a championship. That's how well it's production company is doing I'm sorry. I don't think my earpiece is working what you said. Would you say as a member of the Los Angeles Lakers and in the future? Lebron James has a better chance to win an Oscar than an NBA championship. Okay. That is easily one of the weirdest thing you've ever said in this program. We've been doing this for eight years movie, LeBron James and the Lakers had an actual basketball game last night against the match and they were cruising to an easy victory in the match had a furious comeback. The dodgers with the weird left floater there. And for no reason. Westie Matthews fouls. Lebron James with two seconds left in a tiger. That made absolutely no sense. Lebron missed the first made the second and the Lakers snuck off with a win. This was a must win game for the Lakers. Jalen rose. They can ride this momentum and get a couple of wins moving forward. They play the blazers next. Really bad to see decision by veteran in Matthew's right there. But Kouzmin went to the line and may one or two late in the bra also made one or two late. This is why Lakers in particular have struggled in games decide about five points or less and also weren't able to attain that lead that they were able to secure initially because while they're terrific and getting fast-break points, and they're transitioning those into points in the pain a lot of those. They're not able to get stops in particular when they need to. So is great to get that home with. But I'm pretty sure as a coaching staff in the Bron James in particular. They left that game talking about all of the
