"donovan stan tom" Discussed on WGR 550 Sports Radio

"Tom havoc show is going to join us here in just a second. I have get to these poets from Damian Lillard that he gave Chris Hanes yahu interview. Have you seen this story, Tom? I'm I'm having you on talk about someone else's writing. But if you seen these Lillard boats where great the light in varying Westbrook, quite the life. I would have been quite the light reading that story. Chris. Hey and unbelievable close from Dame. So we'll get to that in a second. But what did you make of what it is that you saw yesterday because if anyone thought before that Russell Westbrook? Former MVP the league average or of triple double was better than Damian Lillard. They would have had their mind changed last night. Yeah. I mean, I'm sitting here baffled by okay? See game plan because I put them to win in six games tennis cancer turnstile defensively. I thought they would attack him relentlessly, but Dame Lillard Russell Westbrook. Over half his layups zero dunks. He pulled up from the mid range rather than tacking. And I didn't think the McCollum coming back from that injury with the you know, looking good as did. And then gain Lillard just ruined all of that you played incredible. And I think everyone today there's this debate that's happening on Twitter where we're wondering whether Paul George was right that this was a bad shot for gaming Lillard. And normally you would say yes that is a bad shot thirty seventeen and he's taking a step back but Dame Lillard this season has thirty nine percent from thirty to forty feet that is one of his best shots. And so as stand knows it is impossible to get a good look in that situation potential. Go ahead shot in the playoffs over the last five. Postseason. The shock goes in twenty six percent of the time of Dana Lillard is creating a shot that goes in high thirties. That's a great shot. Not a good great shot in that scenario. So I think that the conversation around Damian Lillard is so fascinating because he had something that for years for decades. We thought it was a bad shot in Paul George either. Looking at the scouting report didn't think it was a good shot. But really the number say the opposite, Dan, what do you have for Habur show? Well, Tom, I was reading I think you pose this question. I just want to know if you have the answer was that the longest game winnowing playoff history. I think it is someone who stuff that Reggie Miller hit a thirty nine footer to send in overtime a game winner winner. And so far, I have not been told that there's something that's been longer in that scenario. So. It's going stand. The we talked about it. The the NBA is trending towards brook. Lopez didn't take three and make three pointer in the first six seasons of his career is now beating Vicky as the most three pointers taken by a seven footer in NBA history. And this is where it's going trae young Steph curry date Lillard taking the threes. So I think it's you know, Russell Westbrook doesn't have this shot. And it's made him really inefficient and Lillard is now he's moving on in the postseason. I think a whole generation of players are going to watch this and say I need that Tom two guys to have that shot and hit them at a high percentage, obviously Damian Lillard at Steph curry as well is there anything in the way of criticism for Paul George what he did defensively only say this. He was planning out. He realized he wasn't up on them enough. And then took a step out and took a step back Georgy take a step back. If you if you're gonna hit from that range with that type of accuracy blame who can he blame is what he's asked to start the game changes you have to start rethinking Gordon those guys right at have. All right. Who makes someone else beat you? Can you blame the only person you can blame just Billy Donovan for not sending a double right? Like the game plan is to not let anybody else shoot that ball. But really he let game take that thirty seven footer. And instead they could have just thrown at the ball enforce the ball out of his hands. But in that situation, and it was a great shot for gaming Lillard in. I don't know Billy Donovan could've done anything different. But Paul, George, maybe he gives them little west airspace in that moment. But clearly didn't know about Damian Lillard shooting percentages from that spot. I'm not making this up when I say that Stu just wrote the word Billy Donovan the words Billy Donovan down on a piece of paper. And then circled the. Yeah. I did. I mean now, I have my guy to blame. Billy D. Kevin durant? Need a guy to blame? Stay sports radio. Stan I mean, you've been doing this long enough. You gotta blame someone. I don't want to do the Paul George. It was great last night. So Billy Dee that's fine with that. Billy Donovan STAN Tom are used the coach always coach, Tom. That's who they blame. Always never the coach. That's who stand blame never coach. So when Golden State is minus three sixty against Houston. Are you in any way surprise Tom that that Golden State is a bigger favorite against Houston? The Milwaukee is against Boston. Yeah. I think that's going to be an amazing matchup with the rockets. But you just you wonder about the playoff year. We we talk about the switch teams hat have this which where they can flip the switch researchers showing that there is no such thing as Bente that the second half of the season doesn't matter. It's everything resets in the postseason. So I'm a little nervous about pointing to the Houston Rockets track record against the Golden State Warriors in the regular season saying, hey handle them in the regular season. This should be an even series because I just know that the DeMarcus cousins thing was weird the postseason. I think they're gonna play a better brand of basketball against the clippers. I think they're playing better defense and overwhelming that team. So I think it's going to be much more even series than what the regular season says. But yeah, it's gonna be great. They're healthy. And says it I'd rather have the rockets faith voyeurs now, then wait until the Western Conference finals of being on that side of the bracket. It could work to their advantage. If they're healthy, you can get into with the Habur show on NBC sports. That's where he's working these days, the podcast, the Habur show standing what do you have Tom before it gets out of here? Well, I I mean, I just I would like him to tell us which second round series. He thinks has the best potential of upset with the lower seeded team as the guy who predicted that. Okay. See would win and six Tom given. I did too. Because of for a lot of what you said. I just thought cantor would not be able to hold up. I didn't think his defense would hold up. But none of that proved true blazer, we'll give you another chance which one which team has the best chance of an upset round two. Game last night. I mean, they they outscored opponents I guess the Brooklyn nets by seventy one points in forty nine minutes when they're starting lineup is on the floor that starting five again, seventy one points over the course of what amounts to a full NBA game in that series. So that that lineup is so good. They have so much shooting. Everything I think Toronto is right for for an upset if you wanna call it that three over to because that that lineup with J J radical bio-terrorist Jimmy Butler. Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons. They got everything you need, and they showed it against Brooklyn. And I think it's if you're gonna pick in upset because I think every top four seat of the United stance here. So that's probably my best bet is Philadelphia seventy six Toronto who also have ridiculous starting lineup. The biggest threat to Golden State. You can only pick one is Milwaukee is Houston is Philadelphia. I'm going to say a walkie simply because Jaanus I don't think anyone has an answer for that guy. Like in the same way that Steph curry and Kevin Durant or unicorns. Like, there's nothing you can do against Kupa when they are stretching the brook Lopez. It's so hard to guard. And I just don't know if there's much of a track record what we're seeing with Milwaukee. So I would say Milwaukee as the best chance both both ends of the floor their elite. The only thing that we can say a weakness is Yana hasn't done it yet. But man, they get into the regular season sixty one team elite on both ends of the floor. I would say Milwaukee is the best bet now that Billy Donovan is gonna get fired who's going to be the next coach of Oklahoma City. I'm not even going there. I have no idea for not going there. You kidding me through? That's when a series. I mean who the bills are nine Tommy. The Havers show NBC sports. Thank you for being on with us time. We appreciate it. Thanks, tom. This is the best of that ten lebatardshow with.

"And so far I have not been cold. There's something that's been longer in that scenario. So it's it's where the NBA's knowing, you know, in the we talked about it, the the NBA is trending towards deep threes brook. Lopez didn't take three point and make a three pointer in the first six seasons of his career is now beating Dirk Nowitzki as the most three pointers taken by a seven footer in NBA history. And this is where it's going trae young Steph curry Dane Lillard taking these deep threes. So I think it's you know, Russell Westbrook doesn't have this shot and it's made him really inefficient. And Damian Lillard is now he's moving on in the postseason. I think a whole generation of players are going to watch this and say I need that Tom two guys seem to have that shot and hit them at a high percentage. Obviously, Damian Lillard at extent curry as well is there anything in the way of criticism for Paul George and what he did defensively only say this. He was playing him out. He. He realized he wasn't up on him enough. And then took a step out. And lower took a step back is Georgia to take a step back to the Logan. If you're gonna hit if you're gonna hit from that range with that type of accuracy blame who can he blame is what he's asking. I think you gotta start. You have to ten if the game changes you have to start rethinking Gordon those guys right at have. All right. Who makes someone else beat you? Can you blame? I mean, the only person you can blame is just Billy Donovan for not sending a double right? Like the game plan is to not let anybody else shoot that ball.
