"These guys. my friend who lives added houston and he moved. There used just to be on the same time we moved to win. the warriors. Run the rise and he sent me a text. One time and said this steph curry guy. He's really good. Helen's he in the league for cheesy a there had a wide. You okay guys. Lots to talk about here as always with no dunks. We're gonna start with a little newish segment that we're calling five games one thing. I mean there's nine games on in total. We're not going to get them all. But you know what. That's the best part about tasks having that little mini podcast. We may not touch on that game but tassie might of go. Check that out but five games one thing. I'll hit you with the game and you guys give me your biggest takeaway first. One is the knicks. liles is new york knicks. Beat hawks one thirteen one hundred eight. The knicks are four in surreally. Really have at him. Listen first off another fun. Game between the knicks and the hawks two teams who are in the cell alaska's and not really playing a lot of fun basketball. This was a great guy brought to the end. The knicks neely blue. Ideally nick themselves but in the end they hang on for that victory and honestly. I don't even know where to start. Do you start with julius randle. Who is bringing back. The point forward position. he's been fantastic for the knicks. All season long was again. Phenomenal last night or do you go with the sophomore. Aja barra another very good game from him. What do you even go even lower down on the food chain to menu quickly. The point god rookie point guard. Who came in the third quarter was fantastic for the knicks through so much happening in this game. The hawks nearly pulled it out at the end. But i think ultimately the star of this guy was julius randle he was fantastic and he really is maturing as a as a player in the nba. You know he was a high draft. Pick from the lakers. What five years ago. Six years ago now any broke his leg in his first game he ever played. We didn't for that first season and then he went to new orleans. He was at there but he didn't really fit. He goes new york. And it's like well. Why not who cares you. Play for the knicks. But now he's actually not just playing well. He's being a leader for that team. The team is winning games. And there's obviously now a lot of all star buzzer and amenities deserved. Because he's been fantastic and it's not just on the offensive end defensively israeli making presence. Foudy six nine. He's a big guys is big strong and just showing he can have an impact on both sides of the ball and that's just great the top debris nixon started off a little bit slow but now they're rolling. They've got a late at to go. Who can score the ball. They got a guy who's like the main part of their defense especially because it missing a couple of plays to defensively a couple of bigs. So he's taking on a bigger role there. Julius randle and teams playing fantastically. Well fun bastable. Another great game and man. The sky's the limit. The knicks look their identity. Is it's tips installing a defense. Is it not trae. Like that's what they're hanging their hat on right now reynolds awesome. You said barrett's starting to blossom here quickly. Changed that game against the hawks. When when he sort of he. I think he played the entire fourth quarter. Tips was trusting him. What he's doing at the point guard position. But it's defense is an entree and no surprise when tip is your coach. It's defense and it's the full tins effect to be quite honest. Welcome to the tips of new york knicks fans. The defense has been good their eleventh right now. They were tenth probably coming into last night. But a lot better than you would expect from the knicks. But the other part of the ted's experiences that julius randle and rj barrett our number one in two minutes per game. That's how you do you win. Some games play your best players a lot now. They've they wanna get out there. You know the knicks would like to who knows if they're going to actually build around. Julius randle probably not likely but they would like to increase his trade value and this is certainly working him looking like prime chris webber out there meanwhile barrett just looks like a different player. He looks stronger. He looks more decisive and tips has kind of unleashed them a little bit here quickly. Like you're saying almost played the entire fourth quarter. Pick and roll guards. Do pretty well. Tom izzo. Dj augustine had his best years as a bull. Nate robinson. john lucas the third. They're all these random guys that tibbs with put out there that could handle the ball and just get some shots up. You know we think of. Tom has a defensive coach. Obviously he has but the rumor is when he played basketball back in the day. He was a shoot. I point guard. So i always love this back up on cards. Just come in and gun. It's awesome and it seems to work quickly was good last night. I think ended up with sixteen. Had a nice assist. Austin rivers made a few more days. The knicks are getting contributions from everyone. It's not going to last for the whole season. It's probably not going to but maybe if if these young guys are able to stay on. The court threw the tips forty minutes a game. Maybe it gives them a chance at least Be knocking on the door that play tournament. Yeah wouldn't it be so knicks like to in a year where we possibly can have fans in the arenas for playoff games at the knicks would make the playoffs and we wouldn't poor knicks fans could attend msg games but Yeah this is a this is a great star and it's really just that identity to meet. They're playing hard There no doubt yeah there. There been cast of misfits there and when you look at the roster though there is some young talent that is again. It's starting to improve. But they're just plain their asses off no got a little nick. Issue linked specifically some turnovers reggie bullock throwing a pass off the back of the backboard trying to save it. That was interesting but they had. It built a big enough lead. And of course. The held on to keep the hawks at bay at the nixon hawks lowlights from the last one. Minute of this game felt like when they were both ten teams that right cam radish botching the dunk with a massive brick off the back it goes fly. And that's how reggie bullock even gets that to have the turnover. There was some wild stuff happening. If you're a knicks fan and you see the knicks winning that game it must just feel completely asinine to you that your team won a weird game like that had a comeback. The way they did. Randall was unstoppable on the glass. Not keep this guy off the offensive boards and it was huge. I can't believe it. The next are back knicks knicks. Twitter was hilarious during this game because they were down big though down. I think fifteen points in that third quarter. So it's like you know all right. The knicks the knicks back to being the bad knicks. And then they're in a comfortable laters like play offs baby and then it was like the nixon nixing in that last minute and a half they because they just couldn't specter of knicks fandom. There yeah but you mentioned austin rivers. He actually was very good for them. Defensively last night to on trae young at the end there you know he. He's able to sort of keep the keep in front of trae young. Just make things difficult for him. Trae had another good game but he wasn't able to really sort of take over dominate at the end. Lucky would have locked to a scoring wise. The hawks offense really slowed down in that. Fourth quarter and an austin rivers deserves some credit of credit for just being right in the grill of trae young. They're just making it difficult for him. So you know he. He's talked about ripping their knicks..

"Four year offer believed to be an excess of ninety million to all star center Nikola boot Cevic in hearts of completing a deal shortly after Sunday's opening bell in free agency threat move. Smart move for them is a very smart move. That's Mark Stein. Don't, don't let me go anywhere else who's four years night. You're not going to be better. No, I looked great deal before the trade, I thought which was kind of a sneaky Ida too, 'cause like a good pick and roll partner for, for Louise Nikola Yokich. He's a good shoot. Yeah. Yeah. Good player. Just not he's that's the kind of guy can hit the three. Yeah. With regularity. You wanna talk about just annihilated the Lakers last year. Oh, yeah. Yeah. DJ Augustine the Nyland last too long list. Last year. People who've annihilated the Lakers. We got an eye. And that's a good reason goes on. Jayjay Berea, by the way to that's not always the best measurement. He'd be a minimum deal, right? JJ. Yeah. Only if not if he gets to play against the Lakers. He's a max guy against Ricky Rubio though, if you wanna go phone. Points a game because longer the league shoot against and it's the lake Dave mcmanamon reporting after the Lakers finished summer league practice today. Macabre n-. Kyle Kuzma the only two Lakers currently under contract with the team are going through drills together with Frank Vogel. And rob Pelinka observing from the sidelines. So a very quiet practice. A two-man practice. For the Lakers today. I mean you don't wanna we've only got to don't wanna add too much, when you think about the note we only have two guys on the roster. That is it. Well Jonathan Williams. Alice caruso. Yeah. Harder. They extended offers, but they're not part of the team true. If John Williams accepts then he's a two way player. Correct. Look, here's practices. Just LeBron's crew the reality of getting no each other. Very well is if they signed Kurai, they believe they're going to be running a promotion, like through jersey. Mike's or something where if you go in there and buy sandwich. You get to be the sixth man at like. I don't believe it's going to be that bad. Is it doesn't matter like you can run out just about anybody in this restaurant right now for fifteen minutes night, we've got tears, and right? And they'll still win because you have Leonard and Davis and LeBron James, your eighth guy is not necessarily that important on a day-to-day basis, we're going to walk into Chevron and they're gonna give us by one. Get one free tickets like pretty tickets. Yeah. No. That is to the clippers. Do they do that? Yeah. They actually walk around and say here if you buy a ticket, we'll give you buy a movie ticket, and get the clippers remember this happens where they'll be giving away all the clippers tickets all the clippers fans will be in the ocean.

"Or likely scenario as of right now is that instead of creating cap space? They instead have about forty million not, including Moscow stretch underneath the tax line that they could use to resign maybe resigned Ross, depending on what is asking prices, use the mid level and function as an over the cap team. And that's a compelling situation for wealth men in their front office. But something that I wanted to kind of put at the outset here as I was running through for a different project. I was running through their books is the idea that to some extent Orlando is choosing between twenty nineteen twenty twenty twenty twenty one to potentially make more potent expenditure. So MAs gov theoretically expires next season if they don't stretch him then forty year after end. So Orlando can really go after free agents in one in any one of those three years, but the more players they signed at any given time the more limited that flexibility becomes. And that's why is the pivot point because if you keep. Then not money. Whatever he ends up getting, but it's going to be significant stays on their books and then contracts like forty as and and DJ Augustine potentially getting a new deal. Then you're kind of looking more in that term, as opposed to becoming a cap space team in the future with this young core or not core. But with this young group still on their current contracts, and that really gets to the crux of what the plan here is in Orlando, I think you might say, are these guys have been in the doldrums for years and years. They finally made the playoffs. They're really on the way up. Well, okay, their best player is gonna be twenty eight this off season and a free agent and just had the best year of his career. Ain't got completely rates in the first round of the playoffs as they were not competitive after that game one that same player was also drafted behind when they picked Bo. Baba six overall end. But then baba disappointed. It seemed like when Jeff Weltman in John Heyman came in two years ago, they started off, but by drafting, John Isaac, they had the suspect than they drafted baba really seemed like potentially their mandate was to blow up. Yup. What had been blown up and restarted but to affect it. Several times of the previous four years, and then all of a sudden, they get good enough so that they don't really have a way now to add the superstar talent that they so desperately need. They don't even really have a way unless they move on from food to get someone who is going to be a difference maker, attacking the basket DJ Alliston is done way better than anyone could have expected. But expecting him going forward here in the fourth year of that deal in his thirties, to be your primary pick and roll guy not to mention to be good enough for this team to take the next step, just isn't realistic if they resigned boots, they're looking at, at the mid level, maybe if they resigned Ross and they met not even have room under the tax for the full mid level. Now they also have Markelle Foltz for next year. And maybe maybe somehow hill, come out of hiding and actually be able to provide them with something at the point guard position like that is a reasonable lottery ticket. And the fact that they are stuck like this is why I thought that was a good trade for them. Even though it the. More or I should say the last we hear about Foltz as time goes on, makes it seem more and more unlikely that he's going to contribute, and John Isaac. I don't think offensively has shown enough to think that he's going to be more than kind of a decent offense a player who's really good defensively and then Aaron Gordon who's on evalu- contract is probably their second best player. John Isaac plays the same position as him, basically. And it's just going to be hard to get enough offense going with a blow average point guard in two guys who are aren't great shooters, at the three in the four and maybe lose Ross's wab in the if they do keep food shoot..

"It's ridiculous on top of that though. I saw great headline that said game two against the magic is going to be the biggest game raptors history. And look we know there are some really sad franchises out there. But not even the Washington Wizards whatever circle a game two in the first round against the Orlando Magic and try to prop that up as the most important game franchise history. There's no way Andrew and the jokes kinda right themselves. We've seen it before the meltdowns before. I'm actually not that worried on behalf of Toronto. I think they're going to be okay against Orlando. It was a pretty fluky game. Like you. Mentioned. But yeah, they went straight into the panic mode so fast like faster than we can even keep up with. Yeah. Well, here's the thing. I want to add as far as we're Landau is concerned. It was fluky. But it was also crazy impressive on the magic side because there were probably five or six times in that second half where the rafters would go up for five six points. And I was like, okay. So this game is over. And then the magic would keep kind of wiggling things down and hanging around and fighting back, and it was just awesome and DJ Augustine our guy riding high off his first open floor. Mention all season of. Of the seven months in the NBA season. He was phenomenal. So they deserve a lot of credit. I am not particularly worried about the raptors the Lowery thing is the Keeleys. He'll and it's funny when I was thinking about finals picks, I really do think that we've been sleeping on Kawai allot this season. And he has a chance to come through and own these playoffs. He and a couple of other guys they're only a few people in that category. Who can really like put their stamp on the entire postseason. But Kawhi is one of them. The the problem is that Kyle Lowry is still Kyle Lowry. And I don't I'm not even going to allege that he's like choking or anything else. But he's older and less explosive than he was even a couple years ago. And he was O for six from three in that moment. You would want him to attack the rim, but that's just like not really his game anymore, which is also its own problem. There's some like four man's Chris Paul stuff. Avid him isn't. Exactly. Yeah. And it's hard to watch. Because I I like Larry, and I don't wanna see him just meltdown here doesn't I'm actually on the stuff. I think you're really onto something there about him being slept on a little bit. But I do think we need to hold him accountable for game one it's going to get better for him as he's playoffs on for. Oh, but when you look at that last defensive possession where they just botched that switch, right? It's him. And it's Mark assault. We're talking about to defensive player of the year winners in the same picket role against the Orlando Magics DJ August in which I think and they botch it completely. They just don't communicate off. Augustine gets a wide open. Looks at a step in easy off the dribble. Three point or not even deep as walks right into it easy as pie. That's that's on. Kawhi Leonard understand maybe marks should have switched. But you know, what? If quiet actually shown up played games for the entire season. They're they're going to have the chemistry and the cohesion necessary to be able to handle that situation..

"Listen, if you'll end up magic shoot forty eight percent from three point range again for the rest of the series. Then Toronto could be in trouble. That was they showed only thirty five percent all season long. They hit some key ones down the stretch, particularly that one from DJ and the raptors I mean, Marcus all had a perfectly open one in the corner that he couldn't knock that down. We've seen this before from the records and they've gotten out of it. So it's not the end of the world. But it's also concerning that when you have all those plans with all that experience it goes, Saul and Kawhi Leonard and Kyle Lowry, particularly and I copied a team that's into the playoffs for the first time in six years when they lead everything sort of went the raptors way, but I just couldn't close it out. So tell me how you feel. It is the same old. I knew something was off when I didn't feel antsy going into this game. I felt comfortable. Yeah. And that's not right with the Toronto twin to Boston. He didn't even want to be here for tonight's show knowing that. Lose. Yeah. He signed up for this marathon after the raptors lost just to get out of here. Yeah. They've dropped nine of their last ten playoff game ones. Kyle Lowry, obviously was off the defense was off that. The intensity was off. But yeah, it was an awful DJ Augustine killing market soul in probably won't happen again. But there's enough if ands or buts they just didn't play hard enough. I know it's. DJ Augustine going inside like that in scoring. And then you see Kyle Larry going seven. I mean, that's that's bad for Larry. Like, he's opposing point just slide in like that in school, and he's got a score. Point. That is a good thing. Kyle score more than zero point the raptors won't win. And Kawhi Leonard. I think compla- more than thirty three minutes that was a bit. We now with the load management books. We'll be better than all, right? We gotta take a break weekend. Whoop. Sees. Yes. The playoffs. Still have whoopsie is coming up. We are back and sewer the hoops and blue even in the play offs. Oh phillies. Start to the postseason was not so good. This was supposed to be a pass book. ESPN's David men took this video of some Sixers balloons getting thrown into the trash after their game one loss at he said, just rip. It's like confetti drop. Kyle lowry. Did it hit a basket? So we're just going to show you subs. Yeah. He was for some from the field O for two from the three throw line hate to see. Go to practice those free. People thought Patrick Beverley was mocking Kevin Durant for flopping during game one. But it turns out he was actually paying tribute to the wacky inflatable to men candy so mad. Everybody loves those things seem at the car dealership. Come on in free financing zero percent. Despite the win the warriors. Sloppy side was on display. They had twenty one turnovers, including that view to retrieve the bully was pretty quick. Off the bench, maybe got to. That's not bad. Drummond guarded John us on such a coup bowl while he was happy to give them some three pointers hand, waving his tents. And guess what it worked? Soon times at work. The guy is a twenty five percent three point shooter. Von go in sometimes still better than getting dunked on your head. Gordon? Hayward entered the game here with the Celtics and the communication was a little off on his first bass just checking it out of bounds..

"But it sort of so bad that it's good. If he just does it score zero points. I think they win this game. And the fact is they still have Leonard who was fantastic. So I hope that you regress to the mean in terms of the talent on that team. They were plus eleven with him on the floor. Right. Like, it's pretty simple minded to only look at this. Wow. He scored zero points. He's the reason why they lost the game when he was on the floor. They seem to be affected know the limitations that used rawal, plus minus bef- riven who scored his fourteen points. His plus minus was not nearly as good as Lowery's was. Maybe just maybe they lost that game. This is what I will give Larry though, sometimes you gotta look realize the shotting fallen for you. So you don't take shots part of me also things speaking of Fred bend leaf that bizarro. Fred van. Leads DJ Augustine also kind of the game of his life. And that entire magic team did as well, they shot forty eight percent from three Bomani. I don't think that's gonna happen again for this team. And the raptors constructed if you gave them not to buy stock in that franchise, I'm doing it. Now, I don't think that game one is going to be the rest of the series. I would say that bizarro forever. Bleed is actually Ron Baker his college teammate because for the longest I thought that Ron Baker was free event bleed in vice versa because their names and what they look like. Now, these Augustine is actually bizarro Jamir Nelson because I am not the only person who has not intensely watch the magic in seven years, and I looked up and that guy wearing number fourteen. And I'm like, well, Jamir Nelson is still in the NBA. Oh, wow. Wow. DJ Augustine is still the when is the last time you on purpose turned all to west your Landau magic. And did that game involved White House that game was the game? We just talked. You intentionally turned that game? Because I just looked to the mass is going on at the same time a bunch of guys encounter each other at the same. Thinking this appointed for Luke. Said warriors coach Steve Kerr Lakers fired Luke Walton just days later kings, GM Dilaudid butts fired his coach Dave Gaiger and then hired Luke Walton. So Boeing surprise Walt and got hired socio losing the job. I would just like to make a note is that if we've learned anything from the tenure in Sacramento is if they want to hire you maybe just maybe you're not as good coaches. You thought you were lying Lou walls in his place. Like, it's a job. I'll take job roster. The roster is talented. I will go ahead, and I will sign up for that. But am I surprised he got a job? So soon. Just kind of not sure, but the best defensive Luke Walton is that as you put it. We're fees law applied to the Lakers this year, everything that could have gone wrong. Did go wrong. But Luke Walton wasn't really the guy who went wrong, Luke, Walton was just kind of there the whole time. I don't know if they can blame any of that specifically on him. Right. What is he done right since you got that job? Right. Like, the best argued that anybody has relieved Walton is coaches. It wasn't all his fault. Right. Give me something in the affirmative that he is he had that job before last year's Murphy law situation. What did you see leave you encourage about him as a coach again? We'll see this pretty quickly Sacramento has eighteen that should make the playoffs next. Yes. They have young roster. This should be improving. If they do not make the playoffs next year. Honestly, they should probably fire wall because he has demonstrated any other place that he is ready right now to be an NBA head coach, Luke Walton has is great recommendation. Steve Kerr says that he knows as much about basketball as anybody Steve Kerr has met ever. But I caution anybody who. Thinks that Luke Walton will enjoy this job because you you alluded to it earlier..

"Well, this is one of those series. I I heard you say this earlier in the week, and I agreed with it these game wants they're just weird. It's a weird start time. They're just something about it. And it seems that we saw today in the Eastern Conference the road team. Maybe doesn't have the advantage. But if if a team especially the Pacers are going to steal a game. I certainly think it's going to be possibly tomorrow and game one. Well, that's what they did a year ago. Remember, they went into Cleveland in the in similar fashion at stole game one alternately lost the series seven. But you're right. I mean, it was intriguing today to watch. Brooklyn really dominate still Adelphia and an Orlando led a lot during that game against Toronto. And then a former pacer DJ Augustine, it's a big three part of it. I enjoy the part of it. I was disappointed because now Brad Stevens in the Celtics that they meet tomorrow prior to the game can look to two games and say, look, if you're not ready to play then, you know, you're gonna get beat. So, but I think the Pacers are in a good place. They have good competence. Even though they didn't end the regular season with the type of record that they wanted to. I think a good place. I think they're more rested. Now, I think they're focused. I think you've been able to clear their minds. They're now one hundred percent healthy Wesley Matthews Darren collison, the starting back or but we'll start. There was some question about that. I think week ago. So I think they know what's at stake. What's at hand? They're the underdog and they like playing the role of the underdog. And I think they'll be ready to go to mom Kris with. Us from Fox Sports, Indiana as the Pacers opened up the first round of the Eastern Conference playoffs in Boston tomorrow afternoon defense this team is kind of hung its head on defense over the last decade, especially this year with this isn't coached Burke hundred four points allowed per game. I think if you don't let Boston get over one hundred eight hundred ten points, you have a chance to win is it that simple. Or is it you've got to defend three point line? What can the Pacers do defensively to slow down the Celtics team? Well, I think a couple of things Stony that they can't allow Austin to get out in transition Boston in the regular season in the four games averaged about twenty seven points in transition the Pacers average twelve so all of a sudden you're down minus fifteen and then you've got to deal with Boston in the half court in the three wins that Boston have a shot better than fifty percent in all of those games. And so the Pacers have to be a little bit more efficient defensively. And then you've got to find a way to break down Boston defensively. The Pacers were one of the top five shooting teams in the league this year better than forty seven percent. But the only shot forty three percent in the four games against the Celtics. And then the other thing I would say is in all four games. Even in the win. They had at Indianapolis in November. They got behind by double figures in the first half. And even though the Pacers during the year and really during the last two years have been one of the best teams in the NBA when down ten or more points and winning games. They want fifteen this year. That's really hard to do in the playoffs. So gotta get off to better starts and really that starts on. Both ends running an officiant offense and making sure you don't allow Boston delete out to get easy baskets, Chris scenario with talking Pacers and Celtics tip time tomorrow, just after one o'clock and set on Fox Sports Indiana Pacers and Celtics how important is democratise of bonus in the series. I think is very important because I think that's where the Pacers have an advantage with a backup center who averaged nearly double double this year. And you know, he had some good games against the Celtics this year. He'll be very important. I think you'll see Savona and Turner they're continuing to play more and. More together. And you've got to take advantage of that especially on the offense event. So I think the entire bench. Tony is is important you need to have tyreek Evans perform at the highest level. Can he I thought he played very well in the final regular season game in Atlanta. And he's had some good performances this year. He's got to be somebody you can rely on in this best of seven series. If he is giving you some meaningful minutes and some meaningful points. Then I think we've seen all year. The Pacers are much better team miles Turner is averaging a double double against these Boston Celtics this season he'll be matched up against Al Horford. Hum. Motivated will miles Turner be. We see some of the defensive player of the year chatter around the NBA and a lot of times, he's not mentioned can miles us this motivation and kind of go after Horford all week. Well, I think he can. But but you also have to be careful you gotta keep your emotions in check. You can you can be a little too amped in a situation like this. You hope I mean while you'd like to make it a short series on year end, you probably envision that. This is going to be somewhat of a longer series of the Pacers are to win. So I think you got to be mindful to keep your emotions in check, you know, the real advantage for miles as he's been through this before he's been in a playoff series with Toronto. He's been in two playoff series with Cleveland. So he's as veteran of a postseason player as the Pacers. Have you at twenty three years of age Chris scenario with us? We know Kyrie Irving is probably going to quote, uncle get his average twenty four point two game. Who's the one other play outside kyri that the Pacers need to keep in check. Well, I think from what we saw in the final regular season matchup of Friday ago, Gordon Hayward. He is played his best basketball here in the last month. He he he's willing to take more contact any was earlier in the year, of course, coming in off at injury. So I think he's somebody you have to worry about without Marcus smart as well Terry Rozier will probably look to pick up his game. It's been a disappointing year for him. He's not gotten a minutes that he got a year ago. He's not scoring points. He got a year ago. So he may be a guy that's looking to do some more damage if you will in the postseason, and he's very capable if you remember what he did in last year's playoff. So they have a lot of talent. Tony that's the one thing that even with a guy like Marcus smart on the sideline. This team can still hit you in waves. Chris with us we're talking Pacers and Celtics tipping off tomorrow at one o'clock as always kept said on Fox Sports, Indiana pace. Sers and Celtics tomorrow as mentioned before we let you go. I can't remember teams in the Pacers. That had as many free agents to be heading into the playoffs. Is that something that we could see maybe too much individual ball or will that motivate all these players to play at their highest level do thing. I don't think I don't think it affects them individually at all this team's been so together all year long. You know, I've had a chance to visit with a number of them. They are super focused on what lies ahead. So no, they know I think also to the point is they know that this could be the last time that a number of these guys play together. And though if they play well who knows Sony? I mean, you had might have more of these guys back next year than we think might be back. So I think it can work advantage asleep for the Pacers. Because I think this is a group that is ugly hungry. I think it's a group that enjoys playing, you know, on the team together, and maybe they use this as a focal point to say, hey, we don't like to come back and give us. Another run a year from now you've been in this locker room Thad young mentioned it's about elevating elevate your game after victory depot. Avait your game down the playoff stretch. Can these guys elevated again now that the play offs have started? How does that switch kind of turn? And you put everything in the review mirror and say, this is what we got. And this is what we can do here in this first round series. What part of it? Tony is pretty simple. And this is where listened to Dan Burke, and bait mcmil you've you've got to do it a plate at time. You can't get too far ahead of yourself. I had a chance to visit with Darren collison on paces weekly on ten seven fan earlier today. And that's what he said we have to focus on on each cuts on each screen on each past. We can't get to four ahead of ourselves. If we are focused on those things, then usually good things will happen. If you start letting your mind wander, and you wonder about you know, it's the first quarter when it would've I need to do in the third quarter of the fourth quarter. That's when things can get away from you. So. I think it if the old cliche you have to keep it, very simple. But you gotta focus on your task at hand and in particular possession by possession. If the Pacers can do that, I think they can have success Chris scenario from Fox Sports, Indiana. Coverage begins tomorrow at twelve thirty. Your my Johnson. Eddie Gill, Quinn Buckner and our guests Kristen area, Saint Vincent sports a foam. It's hotline have a great call tomorrow. Enjoy the first two games in Boston. And we'll see you coming up next Friday when the series shifts to Indianapolis and bankers, I feel house that sounds great. Tony, thanks for having me on. Thanks again.

"And is starting to figure some things out about the playing defense in the NBA, which is refreshing to see he's like he looked very good in another freaking overtime game involving the sons that I watched last night against the magic magic. He he looked like you got to watch every team people ask me like why are you watch the Catholic? I have to part my job. I have to watch the Cavs every now and then eight and looked much. It was the best defensive game. I think I've seen him play. And if he can become an adequate defender, he is just a monstrously talented offensive player. The he's in Phoenix though. I'm just enjoying the clutch. Terrence Ross season. It's taken a turn for the worse lately we had a big shot yesterday. And then he quasi turned it over on the last play of the game. I think yesterday was like his first good game a month. Phoenix almost lost that game on that on that absolute Bs that shooters do did you see the DJ Augustine drawn three point foul. Yeah. Where he I mean, it was like he had an open corn three Mikhail bridges closed out beautifully like flu. Adam and avoided him to aside and DJ Augustine didn't jump a little bit to the side. He jumped completely sideways, maybe kind of a little bit made contact with bridges. It wasn't even clear three shots. I'll that's that's they need to legislate that rule. I this is the rule. I would make is that if you get a guy in the air, and you don't start into your ordinary shooting motion and not this is subjective. But if you start if no one takes three jumping at the rim straight towards the rim. Nobody does that in the whole world of NBA basketball. Make that illegal. That's not a foul. If you get a guy in the air, and you have to take a whole step forward to lean into him. That's terrible. It's just bad basketball. That's one of my least favorite causes this here as well. I think there's no consistency with the first step travel. I think it's just given to role players like when they you know, in theory, take two steps before putting the ball on the floor. You know superstar is never called for that. But if somebody's swung gets the ball on the swing and attacks from the coroner gets a little excited. Yeah. It's like Haskell, especially as a PASCAL Ceac first year. It's called for that. And then like people adjusted to how he moves, and I think you should be somehow, humiliated, if you do that, you should be they should start finding people for flops again, which they've stopped doing years ago, and you should have like your picture should have like a dunce cap over and on the Jumbotron for like, thirty seconds. It's just It's it's just just awful. It's bad basketball. One thing that's interesting when we talk about the raptors, and we start talking about other teams in the league you start going around the league, and you go if Golden State isn't a looming in the same way that they have like Golden State has been has been like a Trump card just for the whole league for at least two years as soon as Durant got there. Everyone knew they were going to win. There was one moment against Houston where people wondered if it was going to happen. And then it happened because the margin for error was miniscule. You look around the league now, and you look at all these different teams, and you go Milwaukee's good. Boston's good and Philly might get good. And then in the west there's this Golden State and there's a couple other teams, but it's a more egalitarian feeling league than it ever has. And that if you're talking about the raptors gives you a little more hope in that this team is really good. And it's still trying stuff. It's still just messing around and trying stuff and they still once the once the playoffs start. There's nobody you're really scared of if you're the Toronto Raptors there's no LeBron anymore. And it's it's an interesting place to be. I'm not opens up the conversation about the warriors. Right. And how good is this team in house real Arthur struggles? And you know, I'm still I'm still taking the warriors over the field. You know? Yeah. I take the words over the field. They still have the number one offense in the league for all the attention..

"In colleges first year. Yeah. Nine points. The most points the average was here. We went to the final four. And I think he averaged a little bit over fourteen because we told him he had to start scoring a little bit more. But he was a guy that understood every gown in Saint he knew how to make them better. And that was the sole position. And he also taught me a lot about a player coach relationship, you know, everybody talks player-coach relationship, and when you coach guys hard, and which we do. You know, one thing that I don't wanna do. I don't want guys not looking forward to coming back to practice the next day. But TJ said to me one day said coach you, and I are going to have a great relationship because I don't care how hard you coach me. I won't make you love me too. And and after every practice he'd come over during a game, we'd come over. And he was the only play Ivory Coast. And I was he was coach what are you thinking right now? And I'd say, well, here's what I'm thinking. What are you thinking? And I'll give you a great example of TJ forty what made him a great player. We're playing at Oklahoma the year that we both end up with a number one seed in the NCW tournament senior night. The place is going nuts. We're down Ron vodka out of the game told him I wasn't gonna play anymore. I said you gave up to office rebounds, us said just go to the ends bench. Instead there that was pretty much the gist of the time out we break that time out we walked back towards the bench and PJ grabs me coach. What are you thinking right now? I said what do you mean? He said you want to win. Yeah. Well, you gotta put Ryan Bader back in the game. Wow. I said TJ TJ you heard me tell him. He's not won't back in the game. He's coach you don't want to win. So I kid you not he walked away from me. I walked to the end of the bench. And I said, Brian I'm gonna give you one more chance. We he goes back in the game. And in forty five seconds hit two three point shots. And we go from being down nine to winning the game. And when we're walking floor someone came up behind me and hit me so hard is one of those things where you get stunned and you turn around like what just hit me? And I looked at TJ said you a heck of a coach. That was TJ Ford. I mean, he was not afraid to tell me. Hey, you don't wanna win. If you don't wanna put Ron Bacher back in the game. And so I learned to listen to players that are willing to talk to you. And because they do have a feel and that I can go with Kevin Durant. Kevin was a guy that we had a bag of at times. Man, you gotta take this game over and at towards the end of his first year with us when he was the best player in college basketball. He knew when it was time to do that. But I think coaches can learn from players, but I still think you ask about TJ. He was a guy that loves to play. He didn't particularly like to work out per se ended jam he just wanted to be in a jamming play all day long in between his freshman and sophomore year. That's when he really started knowing he had to work on his jump shot. He had to get better shooting the ball. And he really did become what I think is the consummate pro in charge of understanding that you've gotta get better. Rick Barnes, my guest. Rick really quick follow that point you made about Kevin Durant. Why did you have to beg? Him to take over games was he that unselfish Tillack Hoffman's early on. Why did you have to push him to take over? Such a great teammate. You know, his idea was it's a team game. Like that today. But you know, we when Kevin came in. We literally we'd all PJ Tucker. I mean think about this. If it wasn't for the early draft PJ talker. Gibson? Lamarcus Aldridge would have been on that team with Kevin Durant. DJ Augustine Dana James net crew of guys. But when we came in we had developed his great work ethic at Texas where Royal Ivey, James Thomas. He all those guys random move on had developed force all at once. We lose all these guys and we got four scholarship players left in the program the year Kevin came in. We were concerned more than anything. We're going to have to totally re rebuild that culture. Little did. We know that we had just signed a guy who I knew was going to be the best player in college basketball. But you had no idea his commitment to being in the gym. And now he got Damian James DJ Augustine all those other guys to come come into Jim wisdom, and so not only do we not lose their culture. It really kind of went to another level the cabin was so one selfish that he was a guy that when I told him he was going to be the first freshman ever go to the big twelve media day because again we had four. Guys back and the only guy that played was AJ abras who almost whenever year because a guys leaving. And Kevin said to me, I don't wanna go is the whole team's not going, and that's not how this works. But he was such a team oriented guy and one of the great teammates. If you watch him today, I still think he's one of those guys good things are happening to him. He's always deferring to his two teammates, Tennessee, nine one number three in the AP poll and they're at home against Wake Forest on Saturday their head coach Rick Barnes, my guest. Rick. So get caught up. Really appreciate that conversation, especially today. Nice to have you. Thank you. Thank you. Jim goes Christmas. You gotta merry Christmas. Rick that was great. Appreciate anecdotes. Appreciate the stories. Good. Good stuff. Right. Thank you. Rick barnes. All right. We ran a little heavy there. But that was worth it. Time now for a sports update.

"Big items that easy narrow we all knew that skinny guys? Cappella, you know, struggled him that phase of the game early in his career in in. Now, the the new kind of rules this year to kind of really difficult for bomb to two screens, plus thirteen point nine Geog Steen's critical for them. He's plus twelve point six. In so Greg gal floor, but do Cevic having a career last. I checked you had the top PR among centers in the league that are playing twenty minutes or more bo-bottle these kind of messes up just go with weapons against in that vein. Does he just could conduct without even leaving the floor. But you know, I watched Gordon this week whilst Jonathan Isaac this week. I really had my eyes open to how much DJ Augustine can do just as a game manager in try to come look at what's really opened up for USA bitch. You know, he's always been a pretty good shot makers making more shots. He's not doing anything. It's like profoundly different than when he he he's been doing in previous years. But may maybe it's just need Clifford. Does not a lock, you know, things in players is certainly a coaching stability. In a veteran guy. Who knows how to work with veteran players to to kinda really folk. On these are the things that you can do these parts of your game where you can make the most impact hail skies foot on that. So that's just kind of a an introduction to kinda. But what were your observations the magic sweet? I mean, it's it's good to see them getting some wins playing competitive basketball because I'm this to me, they're they've been one of the more disappointing teams over the last few years, not in a major rebuild not in a blow it up mode. If had some veteran players that are good players as good player forty. You know, he's he's a flawed player. But he's still solid. It'd be a scorer shooter guys like Jonathan Simmons. Terrence Ross they had a, you know, guards guards guys that can help them. So in a they should not have been a bottom five bottom eighteen in the league. Based on the talent that they had if you go back to last year, I talked about, you know, these guys betrayed pieces on food his contract was so favorable for what he provides that someone would love to scoop him up, but you know, maybe Landau never even was entertaining. A caller anything on that. But I think the one thing which is doing differently is. He's just he's he's been committed to the three point shot last year shot a little bit over thirty percent. I mean, he's one of those guys you go back over his first five seasons. He took like maybe twenty three point attempts and five years in a now how the NBA has changed in this year last year. He took you know, maybe three or four game. And he's doing the same issue with issue shooting. Forty percent anytime you have a five that is skilled offensively. And he's more than just a a five spot up and shoot it is a guy that can also go out on the block working to pose get things done down there as he's gotta play side now. So I think he's helped him a lot. But really the difference is Steve Clifford has plan in the right kind of defense. It was very interesting..

"But I know that it had if they care slimmer you'd probably a lot more hopeful about that where I'm just thankful that that injury looked so bad that it's not as bad, but his wing Dinwiddie, especially more now in clicked us there. He's one of the best. I don't know what I just guessing right now on the best forty players league would not be shocked if I can arrange it out of that's where fall into that range, and it is going to be to see. See guy that could was kind of laughing like he could be in the running for both sick, man. Most improved player. You know? It's I don't recall a guy being lists. But it seems like Muslims herald might be able to end to go on a talk here. But about your team award about that I gave that to Orlando for their win over Utah Saturday down in Mexico City that was an interesting game because it was their second game down in Mexico City of playing at elevation, but Utah came in Utah team that's used at elevations. So thought that'd be tough assignment or Orlando. But both teams really struggled offensively throughout the game. At the end of the third quarter. I think that was like a fifty five fifty four game or something of end of the third quarter. And then Orlando put forty-one points on the board of the fourth quarter. It should watch them play. 'cause I've always kinda. Grown the fact that they're really kind of a roster would one guarded in a way, you know, really DJ Augustine is the only rotational guy who's a true point guard but early in the fourth quarter was they run their office through tariffs. Ross anyone DJ Augustine came back in. It was still kinda running a DJ grey spot up shooter is great off the ball player of is also really important to them offense with the ball his hands. But as a team just put forty points to the board after struggling get a second win in a row against you know, Utah's been up and down in consistent real jecklin high team so far but still that's a good win for Landau playing a home game away from home at elevation against the plays at elevations. So I wanna Landau in that game. Kinda enjoy the game too. There was a lodge. The Clifford turns Ross on the bench after he was so hot record really is. What turns Rossel's what Orlando the separation? A game. But Ross is a gunner, you know, in the Ricky Davis kind of style, he's a gunner. I'm not I'm not saying that all ever does. He's he's been defector this year done some of those things. But you know, these had a couple of games is clear. The knows what it feels like when it really gets Clinton. And it seemed like Clifford was like, okay, he's really feeling himself right now. I'm not sure that I'm going to be willing to get him back to the point where we need to slow down and use the shot clock in, you know, run through some very specific actions. Just be a little bit more kind of strategic that Ross with the bids glittery was like, okay, be erected mayor. And kinda, you know, Terrance thank you for helping his separation. No Dego kinda close close the Bill and manage the rest of their team for so interesting much my team awards Pacers. So seventy Sixers they have almost identical record two point in this just so critical, Indiana. The everyone seems to be as being less talented than Philadelphia Boston Toronto Milwaukee. I think everyone still not really sure like, you know, was that one year from big, you know, or is that the is at the Vic we're gonna see European Year imported into wins even played five hundred dollars to fourteen to keep them kind of you know, I in range, but it was a game where they said, okay, Joan be wearing let you have all you want. We're gonna control everything else. Be that forty twenty one in that game. But the Pacers in three point line excellently. And then really what they did was they attacked when it was stuck in versus second unit. So Cory Joseph was you know, I thought was flipping the last two years as having a really really good season this year Aaron holiday is playing well off the bench at times, which is fun to see in Samoa's playing Neuner..

I understand being beta to to Russ's his alpha. And this is not the old depot that the thunder traded now innovate cume.

He's incredible. I love is him in the top sixty trade value. Yeah. And he's what amid rounder so was eleven or twelve something like that. God, I really I really enjoy the bonus. He's he's their guy. Look they kept him in the game last night. There were still thirty. Yeah. So they want him to get his numbers. His the second leading score for the Pacers. We'll get to this a little bit later. But it's bogdonovich right which surprised me because miles Turner's taken up another step back. The only thing I really don't understand that's going on in the league this season that just flummoxed as me in. I can't explain it. And I watched them, and I don't get it is Orlando like went to that Celtics game. When the magic beat them. I didn't understand it as it was happening watch last night there just hanging with Golden State. They're going toe to toe with Duran who's got forty nine points ends up with Klay went crazy. Klay had to go crazy in the fourth from the win that game that was a tough game. Was out. And then whenever he got double the kick it out the Terrence Ross and the terrorists down a reverse happening. Why do they suck? I DJ Augustine's out there. That guy's been on forty teams is it because of that is that we just passed that DJ Augustine Terrence Ross to have dudes what if somebody offered Isaac in a first for Tatum unprotected that trading Tatum. I just wanna see how much you like Isaac. I do like Isaac. Although he did the classic not is it costs. I can't believe guys do this. It drives me nuts. Where the words are up. One Durant has the bond the top of the key. If you just pause it. I would say we're watching TV and I just positive like he's gonna pull up from three. We know the spot that he shoots from. We know what he's going to do is. It goes four feet beyond the arc three inches pulls up and shoots the three. I would just just take your layup. Take the lamp, I don't care go by me. I'm not giving you three you make three or four but Durant over and over again, he does this. That was watching your Orlando Bronco two ropes the ropes these dudes into it. He'd like Jedi mind tricks them. Yeah. There's just nothing you can do because the release on it even though by the Orlando broadcast like, oh, he wants to screen, and he didn't he didn't want the no one showed. And just he just all right? Who do you think speaking of last second shots? Did you see Zach LeVine shot last night for Chicago? I ended up not seeing it somehow. Okay. So they're down one to San Antonio. And he has it. And he just dribbled it out and took a three down one. And it was so bad like they didn't run anything. And I thought the wizards were bad like they won an overtime correspondent play for the rockets. I mean harden, Gordon went nuts, but they had a play where they ran it with wall where they screen harden off a him. So then wall had to take they ran a Jeff green John wall pick and roll deadly to get harden off of wall and get wall into Tucker. And then they both my green smart shockingly didn't work.

"And they done that consistently. I just feel like if it was the New England Patriots that we're talking about the New Orleans Saints in the way that they play football the pretty way looks we're speaking of this team differently. The other thing that I think we sometimes do a terrible job of remembering is that. The Shawn Watson is still only in his second year. He didn't play that much last year. And when this started he was still coming back from the knee, and they had the issue with the kidney where he's on a bus to Jacksonville. He's getting healthier and playing better and looks really this is why we thought this team would be where they are. Now at the beginning of the season we were expecting to Houston Texas to be here. But when it starts in three when you have a quarterback getting it set the scope put on his back every time he goes to the satellite. You say guys look like. Football and for for the Sawada to catch a bus to a game. That'd be able to fly with his team. I believe it galvanizes the men in the locker room. And now you see this team playing together and playing will remaining schedule looks like a cakewalk for the for the Texans. Obviously, we looked at the schedule. The colts game is the beginning. Right. Every look playing extremely well. They're on a winning streak. Now. That's a team that's trying to chase for the AFC south lead. They need to win that game. It'll be exciting to see these two teams play into week bottom line of it is right now the Houston Texans have played their way not only into the top of that division but into the conversation as a legitimate Super Bowl contender. All right basketball to the NBA we go, and we'll get to Houston and a little bit. But first we start with the warriors. And the magic the warriors down seventeen points at the half their largest deficit as a hat in the season. But Jalen rose. Kevin Durant was like, no, this is not going to happen. He comes back into this game and ends up trying to make. Game fourth quarter under seven minutes to play warriors down four Klay Thompson right here. Jalen rain in the three after Claes at its best either catch and shoot off a standstill or down screen as you see quick catch fire, bang bang. Klay Thompson fired up and we're finally take the lead and just over three minutes to play warriors up to rejection by the rand this. Cousin my job to cover NBA basketball particular big Mussab is really good player for the Orlando. Magic the as well on the perimeter gets you almost twenty points per game. The magic downto- DJ Augustine drained into three pointers there in the magic back on top. They're they're getting going here. They're trying to make the gaming for your ears notice. The goal. Stay worse. A remix an offense. It's a lot of past catch screen shoot. Not a lot of one on one. Not a lot of ball handling. Not a lot of driving kick that you see when that guys in the lineup. They wish they had stepped Korean the lineup for sure Durant. Don't side at that point. But he would end up being fouled and under thirty seconds to play warriors up by one Durant takes time here. It's a three pointer to put the nail on the cop and win it one hundred sixteen to one ten how did do it? Put on the gun and trying to get the money on school, especially when we don't have many points. If you can't generate enough offense got trying to get to it. So tonight, you know, different. She was down. To do something. Saw the bowling defense. Kiss to come up. The main mug competing late night game. Good stuff yesterday Martinez. Second consecutive forty point game. The third time he has done that in his career. And the first time with the warriors. He's for ninety three points in his last two games. Have most rain any game span in his career. Not about some rockets and wizards James harden, and the rockets trying to get this one started first quarter Houston up by fifteen and pardon Bland's at home terrific score. Like, James, harden, layups and dunks. Why did you think? What?.
