"Does campaign play in a starter's role the way he played a season ago as a starter? Because that was, you were winning games like that. So I don't know what is your take on it? First of all, Devin Booker, the sons are plus 128 raw points with Devin Booker on the floor. That's number one in the NBA. They're -27 when he sits. Wow. Second of all, Mikhail bridges. Mikhail bridges was a cute kind of, well, if we're talking about kind of all star snubs at the bottom of the snub list, maybe you so much to mention Mikhail bridges. This year, Michael bridges, if he keeps playing like this, is going to be in the all star conversation full stop. 16 points, 5 rebounds three assists, no grit doesn't sound great. 59% shooting. 46% on threes, 63% on twos and boy oh boy, those little leaning, the little leaning mid rangers are a thing of beauty and the defense is what it is. He's the first team all defense level player. That hasn't dissipated at all. And when you look at the sun's, my whole thing coming into the season with them was, I just think they've maximized their style of play. I don't think they can stay atop the west with this offense that is all mid range jumpers. No threes, no free throws, no offensive rebounds. Too many fouls on the other side of the floor, so we're spotting teams 5 points again at the Fallon. They have to adjust little by little, none of it is big. Here are some numbers. They were 29th in free throw rate last year. There are 13 this year. And if you look at who's getting to the line more, it's just everyone's just a little bitty bits. Devin Booker a little bit more, McGill bridges a little bit more. The bench unit with Torrey Craig and jock Landau is sort of lifting their rim toughness stats. Offensive rebounding. They were 21st last year. They're 11th this year. And again, you look at the numbers, it's Landau, it's Tori Craig. It's everybody else just a little bit little bit here and there. They took the 25th most threes last year. That's up to 18th this year. It's just a couple threes a game. It's not big. They took they were dead last in shots at the rim last year. There are 27th this year. So the only moved up three spots that doesn't sound like much, they took 25% of their shots in the restricted area. That was last by a mile last year. They're up to 31% this year. That's like 6 shots a game. They've redistributed from the mid range to the rim. That has taken them. I know there are only 27, but they're like a normal team now. They were an abnormal team last year and again, you look at the numbers who's getting to the rim where it's just bit by bit, Mikhail bridge is a little bit more Landau a little bit, book a little bit more. It's just everybody Tory Craig crashing the glass, little bit little bit little bit, and as you mentioned with cam Johnson, although it wasn't playing out in the aggregate, I think the idea of starting him was we just got to shoot more threes. We got to get more threes up Mikhail bridges. You got to get more threes up. And those numbers, they're little. They're little and a lot of it is the bench scrappy guys lifting them up, but they're just, I'm just gonna watch them because I think it reflects a little bit of self awareness that they needed of we just have to get a little more modern and diverse if we want to stay where we are. And they have emphatically stayed where they are to do this without Jay and now cam and with Chris get again looking like a shell of himself. Although I gotta tell you DB. Even when he looks like a shell of himself, Chris Paul, 94 assists in 15 turnovers for the season. It's like ridiculous. And who do you want managing the game down the stretch, you know, like give me Chris Paul every day of the week. What should take on Deandre ayton? The first presser where he said, you know, somebody asked him about he and Monty and he said, we haven't spoken. That was jarring for me. You know, any concerns about that or him at all. You know, I guess my concern would just kind of be like, maybe this is just it. He's at 15. I'm looking at it as a 15 and 8, his minutes are a little bit down, but so per minute he's probably about the same. Still doesn't get to the line, okay, passer, okay offensive rebounder, still kind of wants to fade from contact at the rim ride, catches in traffic and his default is spin away for a fade away. And you keep, but he's just good. He's good at lots of different things. And you keep hoping from the leap for the leap from good to all star, which when they made the finals look like it was kind of in progress. And he's 24 now and it hasn't happened yet, but I guess I'm not worried because again, that, as you said, that was sort of an alarming press conference, but he's playing well, like he's doing he's doing the Deandre and stuff on both ends of the floor. And they just keep on keeping on it to your point. We could be if they win those two games against Portland, they are ten and one, and they are at the top of everybody's conversation through all the adversity they've had. I think this goes a little bit to what they've established as a baseline of acceptability and standard and accountability and all those things. And it feels like a complete contrast to the team we just spoke about Minnesota, where in those games that can go borderline either way, they're winning those games. So it's been impressive. I don't think they're on my schedule, and that disappoints me. 'cause I like watching book in person, but. You know, by the way, their first sale. That's 7 scandals ago. I forget sometimes they're for sale. That's right. That's right. They need to get bob Iger involved with this. He had the Midas touch. Doris Burke, you got to go to work in Memphis. We got Memphis Minnesota tonight on ESPN. That's correct. What time? 8, 8, 8 eastern. What do we got? No, 9 30 eastern, I think. Over the late game, you're the late game. I think there may be college football on before us, I'm not a 100% sure. Football. Make way for football. We're working so hard in addition to everything you're doing. I feel like your podcasting more. You twice a week. Twice a week. Who do you got on play by play tonight? Mark Caster.

"Talk before we hit Phoenix. And again, what Phoenix is doing without cam Johnson Jay Crowder and now Chris Paul is fantastic. The last thing they did was go into Minnesota who had everybody and beat the living snot out of the Minnesota Timberwolves. Let's talk about the Minnesota Utah connection because obviously they made a gigantic trade together in the off season, the Minnesota Timberwolves was our 5 and 7 and look awful. Do you tell jazz or ten and three? And look incredible. And oh, by the way, everyone is rushing, you know, Sam aime wrote this piece interviewing executives from other teams saying, oh, Daniel will Daniel will sell like Danny doesn't want to be good. They want to try to get one but Yana, one but Yama or scoot or whoever. They'll trade Clarkson they'll trade. But whatever, maybe they will. Maybe they will. If they lose 5 of their next 6 games, I think it becomes much more likely that they will. But I can tell you this, they're loving life right now. They are okay for now seeing what this team is. And I can tell you the sample size is now big enough that this is a team that will hit a slump at some point. Reality will come at some point. Lowry marketing is not going to shoot 65% on twos all season. Kelly Olynyk's not going to shoot 57% on threes. Opponents are going to start hitting threes, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera. Even so, this is a decent team. This is not a bad team. This is a 500 team ish at worst. That's now got a 7 game cushion on that. And oh, by the way, the people rushing for them to tank, you know who's picked they own unprotected this season? The Minnesota Timberwolves unprotected 2023 first round pick. All those Timberwolves fix most of them are unprotected, including this year's and the Timberwolves and I know you're excited to talk about this. They are look, I've not seen them in person, so I'm getting the vibes through the screen and from talking to people that have seen them in person, I just can't believe how awful it all looks, how awful it all sounds. And that Phoenix game coming off the blood against the Knicks, your New York Knicks doors, Burke. If that doesn't raise alarm bells and get these guys to get their in gear now, I don't know what will because that Phoenix loss and that Nick sloss. I didn't see the Knicks game. I saw the Phoenix game. There were ten possessions in that Phoenix game where my jaw was a gape at how disorganized, unhappy, cranky, slow, discombobulated, the Timberwolves were. I don't know whether I want to go to Utah first or them because I have Minnesota tonight at Memphis. And so obviously I've spent a lot of time on them. First of all, to your point about Utah, the one thing you didn't touch on and where they might hit the slump is opponents are getting a lot of shots at the rim, and they're not finishing those shots at the rim yet, and that will change, I think. But I watched Holly road do a little bit of a piece on Lowry market and will hardy and sort of will watch and the finished national team. And fun, and for years, we knew what Utah was. You were getting high screen and roll with two shooters in the corner. And Rudy was going to be at the rim. And Donovan was going to try to get downhill. And it was relentless with that boom boom boom boom boom. Here we come. You know what's coming, but this is what we're going to do to great success, right? There are offense was always, I don't know, top 5. And now it's totally different. Now it is run, you know, get it off the window and run, run, run, run, run. They're shooting the three most. They're down to their 5th most recent league, but they're shooting the hell out of it from three. Yeah, Lowry, not only shooting the three. And it was open in an article that happened earlier this year about how things got away from him. In the past, how, you know, you get hurt and then you press because you, you know, the shots that find you are, I've got to make this because I'm going to get X number of these and if I don't make it them, I ask, I'm going back to the bench. And so I don't know there's just something very likeable about this team. Here's a fascinating thing to me. Jordan Clarkson was loved by Quinn Schneider because he brought a different vibe and feel, but he was a player who, not about himself in a bad way, Zach, just in about my job is to come in and be Vinnie Johnson. I'm supposed to come in, and I'm supposed to change the tempo, and I'm supposed to score it. What is Jordan Clarkson? I looked at this this morning, no, we're going to talk about him. 5.2 assists per game, a career high in minutes career high in three point percentage and looking like part of a team as opposed to I'm going to just go dominate the game with my own individual scoring. My calmly looks like he's having fun, 8 assists per game, like I agree though they'll level out at some point, but will hardy, what a job he's done out of the gates. And they're fun. They're just fun. If you ask me right now, you know, they are, they're kind of in the catbird seat among the rebuilding teams allegedly. I mean, they're ten and three. Maybe they're not rebuilding. Maybe they're just built, I don't know, whatever. They have the best players to trade of those teams. They have the best sort of available veteran players of those teams may be accepting Bogdanovich in Detroit, who's not trade eligible immediately because he just signed an extension with them. Again, we'll see if Charlotte jumps in the fray at all and if that if that matters. My guess right now, let's just say they go 500 for the next 20 games, right? So they level out, but it's not, it's not bad. They're still 5, 6 game door 500. I think their stance is gonna be depending a little bit on how Minnesota does and how that pick looks. I think their stance is gonna be, you can call us, you gotta offer us something really good. We're not selling just to sell and get bad. Like, we're cool.

"No, he's not, and he's shooting into 20s. And in that Indiana game, two days ago, he took a couple late in the game because they were trying to come back and he was open and he had to take him. And by the way, that game filed that one away. Because I watched that game, I was at Barclays center and I was watching that game during commercials and halftime and all that. They fall way behind jokic has 4000 the second quarter 5000 like a minute into the third quarter has to sit forever. And it just felt like a game where you let go of the rope and just say, next day is another day. And their bench hung around, hung around, hung around, chipped the lead down to like 8, 9 by the time Yoko should come back in the game, and then they come back like it's at India and it's not no great shakes, but it was a win that I just filed away as like this team has a little bit of steeliness to it that I like and you look at that bench. Everyone was concerned about the bench and I get that. I mean, there are plus 13 with jokic on the floor and I'm looking it up now. -17 per 100 possessions with you guys. They got to figure that out. But between Bruce Brown, Jeff Green and bones island. Those are three guys right off the bat that I trust off the bench. Christian Brown, I have to stop every time. Christian Brown has been okay. Devon Reed has been okay. They floated in other rotation. I don't even think Deandre Jordan has been bad for them. I think they have just enough. They could use one more guy. Everybody could use one more guy. I'm just filing that win away and Murray to your point. He's not all the way back. And you can see him when teams switch big guys on to him, think to himself, can I get can I get by this guy? No, you know what? I'm just going to dance with him and shoot a step back too. And I'm good at that. A couple times in that pacers game, you said to himself, wait a second. I'm Jamal Murray. I'm bubble Jamal Murray. I can get by that guy and roasted him for energia and Smith, whoever I was for layups. I just, I was super high on them coming into the season. There are pieces fit. They're starting lineup is incredible. They're second starting lineup with Bruce Brown and Michael Porter junior's place is incredible. And why did Brooklyn not resign Bruce Brown by the way? Like, why is no one talking about that? He was exactly what they needed and they was like, yeah, we're cool take him. Oh my gosh. I mean, think about his cutting skills around Nikola Jokić, you know, those playoff moments where there's an opportunistic backdoor cut to be had because you're paying attention to the dribble handoffs or whatever's happening or you've got to shade to Michael Porter junior who's lights out. What there is a team number one and three point percentage, I think. I worried and I heard your podcast with Jeff, I'm a huge Monte Morris fan. I go back to when he was, you know, at Iowa state and not turning the ball over. He's like the trade Jones, you know, the tyus Jones family, the guys turn over a verse. I remember Michael Malone at the start of the season sort of saying to bones has got to get command of the second unit. But bones is growing, bones is shooting it well. He's not finishing at the rim. He's 6 for 22 at the rim. I think he can at times get pressured, so I'm curious about that, but he's playing well. And I think he's growing every day. And so I just worry that they lost Monte Morris because of how sound he was and I know he spent most of last year as a starter, so I'm thinking second unit guide, but bones. I like that team. I like that team. What did Aaron Gordon have the other night 17 and 16 or 18 and 17? Yep. So I'm with you on the dental. And they're just fun to watch. I liked that I loved that. I didn't love it because I like Monte Morris and I knew what the risk was involved. I liked that trade for them and I kind of frankly didn't get why people were so upset about it because I was high on bones. Bones is not a patch first caretaker on offense. Bones is like, I'm the best player on the floor. That's what I'm gonna do. So I'm gonna be and that's cool I like that. But KCP versus Barton is just such a fit one 80 for Denver starting 5 KCP is everything they need. It's just a better, a better player. And they are after, like you said, kind of a rocky start like weird loss to the thunder. I think just a couple of losses were like, what's going on with this team Michael Malone was black able and was pissed in pre season already. He was like pulling dudes in a preseason and now they seem to be kind of gelling into your point about jokic's usage. I kind of like that he's taken his foot off the gas a little bit this year as a score. Like save it for the playoffs, let these other guys feel the ball, let these other guys get involved and MPJ,

"Low pool. Welcome to the low post podcast on a Friday morning where boy oh boy do I get excited when I see this lady's face across from me virtually and in person and now the world gets to see your face because they made me do YouTube podcasts and so here we are live on YouTube apparently the Hall of Famer, the one and only Doris Burke, how are you? Superb superb? What are we 13, 14 games in for some teams? It's been a good start. As usual, Zach, there's some things going on in the standings that we're all like, it's this real? Is it not real? Is it going to find its own level at some point? So I'm so good. We're 13, 14 games, and by my unofficial count, 72 NBA scandals into the into the 2022 2023 season. We're going to talk about basketball today. And then I don't know if you if you saw this, but one of our former colleagues, Chris Haynes, dropped a piece yesterday about some notion that the Lakers when LeBron signed his extension, which is really only a one year extension. People acted like what a long-term commitment he made is one year. Sort of implied to him, we will go all in to put a championship contender around you every season. And flash forward, it's 11 games in. There are two and 9. They stink. Russ off the bench, Russ and the starting lineup, Russell and popcorn. It doesn't matter. They're just not good. And now there's this pressure building of are we just really going to sit here and waste a year of LeBron James and we have these two first round picks we can trade. We have this disaster that's unfolding in Brooklyn, although the nets have looked spirited and are winning games since Kyrie was suspended. Are we really just going to sit on our hands here and DB? I think one of the reasons that that noise is not going to go away is you look at the Western Conference on top are the Utah Jazz, no one expected that. Portland, no one expected that Phoenix. Okay, no one's really the big teams are not that scared of Phoenix Phoenix was really good. We're going to talk about them beyond impressed by what they've done. The clippers, 7 and 5, the warriors four and 7, I think those were kind of consensus one and two maybe in the west. And the nuggets is we're going to talk about sneakily starting to look a little scary at 8 and three, but the west doesn't feel as open and shut as clear at the top as people thought. And so I think if you were the most optimistic Lakers fan in the world, you could be like, well, there's, you know, we got this trade right. We still have a brown we still have AD. Maybe we could make a run none of these juggernauts are doing anything and we're going to have that conversation. I think where do you want to start Denver or the Utah Minnesota nexus of trade trade different trade feelings we'll call it? Well, first of all, let's start with Denver, but I do want your take on something because I've heard you talk about this in all of the settings we put you in. And sort of like the sleepless nights that the Los Angeles Lakers must have as it relates to those two picks. Would you do it if you're them? Well, I mean, that's the thing I'm going to talk about later is I just don't know the trade. They're so bad. And LeBron's heard already. Anthony Davis isn't. Ruled out for tonight. He's out for tonight. And look, maybe it's just one or two games, but it's not encouraging that we're 12 games in and he has an injury that he's had before. AD is very good but not top ten good. And if those guys aren't just gods, like if LeBron's not in LeBron shooting 21% out the reason, those guys are gods, everything else is just window dressing, like the whole model of the team is those guys are the third best in 9th best players in the NBA or whatever you want to rank them. And if they're not that and they're not really even close to that in AD's case, I don't know what the trade is and then you look at the teams. It's like spurs. No. Charlotte, Charlotte's interesting and looming as a potential they've lost 7 in a row loss to Miami and overtime last night. They should just dive all the way to the deep end of the wembanyama pool. Just go all the way in, but like Gordon Hayward's hurt already. I don't know even though they could trade Rozier, fine. Like, is that changing your life as the Lakers? The Indiana one is the one that I've said I would lose sleep over, buddy, healed in miles Turner, but two and 9, two and 9 in this bad, even with the conferences jumbled as we just said, I just, am I just going to destroy my entire future? I mean, those picks are like golden chip. Picks. Right. And then that would bring you to Brooklyn and the guy there, which I don't really want to talk about right now. So I just don't, it's easy to say, you got to go all in and go all in, go all in. If you go all in on a deal that's a half measure, that's like a couple okay players, pretty good players that Utah, guys, the way you talk, by the way, ten to three, we're going to talk about them in a second. Why are they trading anybody? Do you? Unless you give them everything. And it doesn't work and you're the 7th best team in the west. And then you get to 2026, 2027, 2028, 2029, all your fans are going to be like, oh my, oh my God. LeBron's 40 something and retired and AD? Is a shell of himself, and we don't have our we don't have our draft picks? How did this happen again? What were we agitating for in 2022? What about you? My

"You're just creating an extra meal for me because I don't even know what could be happening around me and earthquake could be happening. If there's pizza, I don't even care what the topping is. I'm eating the pizza, so you're just setting me up to get fat with a 3 p.m. pizza option. I can't resist it. It's impossible. This is a lot of information. I'm sorry. Piazza I think that's the name of the place we went to the pizza was absolutely stellar and the company is just exceptional. So, hey, listen, all I know is I'm lucky. I can't wait to get to game two and see what Steve and he may have in mind and see what these incredible players do. So last night was so fun back and I felt like Boston had to get one here in order to make this the series we thought it was and they did and you're right. Now prosperity prosperity is not been kind to the Boston Celtics they tend to make things hard on themselves so we'll see how they react. Well, I think we both picked warriors in 7. We did, yeah. In theory, the Celtics winning game one should not really dissuade us from such a long extended pick like that. I did come away from that game one feeling like, oh, that was that was a pretty emphatic boss who went and you can show me the 21 threes and all that and obviously those guys won't shoot like that, blah, blah, blah. It didn't feel it felt like a piece of information that changed the way I thought about the series a little bit. Sure, I would agree with that. And I would agree with that because of the way they were able to defend after the first quarter. The mind boggling stakes, there's a transition three by step where Derrick white and one other Celtic were standing right there. And they both ran in the other direction. I said, what the hell are you? It was Pritchard. It was Pritchard, the other one. Are you kidding me? Two guys just walked away or actually turned and jogged away from the greatest shooter in this race. Oh, it actually be fun. It would actually be fun if you could make this like an attraction that you would pay like an enormous amount of money for. In a 5 on 5 situation, I would want to see how it feels like because you see some teams do this. Okay, so I'm playing the real warriors and you just plop me onto the defensive team. And you say, you're only job is literally ignore everything else happening on the floor. Do not avert your vision from Steph Curry. The other, it could be Wilt Chamberlain Bill Russell, Michael Jordan and LeBron James. You don't care. You're only job is to chase him around. Do not pay it. I don't care if he's 75 feet from the hoop or at the basket. That's your only job. I obviously I would fail on that after one cut by Steph Curry. I'd be in the dust. I just would like to see what it feels like to just because when you play pickup, you don't just have one job, like some guys are just face guard them 94 feet. I just would like to see what that feels like. I would pay some money to do that and it would be horrible, but it's very unique, but to your point, it's like, dude, that's Steph Curry. Just guard him no matter where he is. And if somebody's coming up the floor, who should not be left on attended in transition, it's that guy, go find everybody, you know, leave everybody else out alone. Oh, it was too crazy. That's enough. I've wasted enough of your time. You're the best to indulge me on this stupid podcast. The one and only Doris Burke, I will see you soon. Thank you for your time. Keep up the great work on ESPN radio and.

"And I am on the side that he's going to be good enough. I just don't expect him to go two for 7, four turnovers and look as young as he looked. He just, I just, I don't see that. I don't see that but he can not be a piece of tissue paper floating around on defense. He has to show some, I remember saying this on a telecast early. The question is, I think you and I have had this conversation. And these are the things you see early that you say, Kenny hold up, can he hold up? Can Jordan Poole can those lineups ten those minutes when you are that small? Can they hold up? This is the question. This is the question and we asked it when we first saw it. But as we mentioned earlier, I think it sometimes gets portrayed as like this parlor trick. Oh, pool party? It's a little short minute burst. Curry and pool. No. Curry and pool together with draymond was like a massive part of their turnout. It was not just a random parlor trick. Let's wrap real quickly. What did you think of opening with Robert Williams on Andrew Wiggins, which I speculated about on my podcast and in my column and then sort of concluded that it kind of feels too cute and they came off of it in the third quarter. They put them on to loony. I wonder where he'll start game two if it's Wiggins or if it's a loony, what did you see there that you liked and you didn't like? I mean, I get the idea of it. I talked through it before the series. I think there's some smart reasoning behind it. Obviously the warriors are going to try and attack it with curry Wiggins pick and rolls and sort of test them out that way. And I think the idea of it is, fine, you do that. You run curry Wiggins pick and rolls in the starting 5. That means loony and draymond are somewhere behind the place so you're spacing is not going to be great. Not going to be as good as it would be if one of those guys were screening for Steph. But what did you think of it and how and how the warriors responded to it? It's funny because one thing I have said throughout the course of this run for the Celtics is and I thought you saw this on display in the Miami series, particularly in the game 7 where Robert Williams bumped his knee early and just didn't move the same the rest of the way. You know, you've talked about how the defense elevated as soon as they made the switch to putting Robert on the wings and letting him roam around. And even Steve Kerr private game once said, because I have to occur this point blank. You know, basically, what do you expect? What does it look like if he's healthy versus not? And he said, listen, just what you said, we're going to put him in the screening action if he's guarding a wing and we're going to play out of that and we're confident about what we'll get. And I had read your preview after interviewing Steve, and I saw the line about having him guard Wiggins, could be too cute. And I just smiled because I asked him, who is he going to check to start? And he said, wig inside, just put a big smile on my face. It goes back to your point, I think, you know, like Celtics downsized. Who's the big? If Al Horford shooting it the way he is, how many ministers Robert Williams get moving forward, I do think they may go back to the kavan loony matchup as opposed to that. With Robert Williams, and again, you know, the beauty is, you know, you can probably do both as long as Roberts getting two days between and so he can be at that point of attack. If there is the pick and roll with Wiggins and curry, Izzy Robert, who can move laterally, he surprises people, I think. He surprises people with his ability to be in the middle of the page shading off a Wiggins and still get out and contest a shot. I mean, I don't know how many threes he's blocked this year, Zach, but it's quite a few. So I think that's the beauty of the Celtics is you can move all these parts and pieces around and adjust on the fly, I don't know. I don't know. I would start among Mooney. Me too. I would start them on Looney, but I don't know what he is going to do. Regardless of who Robert Williams defends, in the second half they started doing the thing where the warriors would call his guy up for a pick and roll and the Celtics would switch him out of it in the middle of the play. So before the pick actually happens and then the words would say, okay, so you switch them over there. We'll just bring that other guy up so you're still involved. The dangerous thing about that against the warriors is when you play that kind of mix and match, then you get caught up in, okay are we trying to get back to our original assignments now or are we sticking with these and the warriors move so fast that if you're confused for half a second all of a sudden one of the splash brothers is going to be launching an open three. So I would keep an eye on that and I say this, I say the following, I'm cursing myself saying this. Daniel tice is probably gonna score like 14 points on 7 of 7 shooting in game two. I just don't understand why he continues to play. I know he made a shot last night. He made it. Did you make a three? Was it a long tour? It was a three. He made a three. Yeah. I'm with you. I just don't get it. The Celtics, the Celtics love Daniel tice. Did you just can't get enough at the end of Daniel tice? If Daniel tice gets traded in the next 18 months, they will trade back, they will trade it for him back like 6 months later. I just don't get why he's playing, especially if you're going to go small a lot. But hey, look, hats off to him. He made a shot. DB, I will see you soon. If you go, if there's a pizza pasta wine, just let just keep me in, I'm not, you know, the Napa wine tasting with Cassie, that could get out of hand. I don't know if I want any part of that, but the pizza pasta postgame wine. I want and I want PJ Carlos simo to be like really, really gruff and telling old stories about seton hall and what a Terry to hair and stuff like that. Can we make that? That guy could shoot it. He was electric and you kidding me, John Morton. Oh yeah, PJ's got all the stories. And we would love for you to join us in our postgame pizza pasta. I promised myself. I literally said to mark Tessa I'm gonna be so disciplined. I'm gonna have a protein and a salad. Before we even sit down like four, four pizzas to send on the table, I take one sip of wine and everything went out the window. No, you can't. You put pizza in front of me. It's a debate in my house, 'cause once you have kids see, I didn't realize this, your pizza frequency with kids, it goes up like 500% because when they're all together when you have an outdoor gathering, the easiest with responses like, let's just order a bunch of pizzas. Every kid's birthday party is pizza. So I've realized I could eat pizza literally every single day from multiple meals. My wife is like, get sick of pizza after like a little too much over a couple of weeks. If you put pizza, it doesn't even when kids, birthday parties are like at 3 o'clock, so I've already had lunch and dinner is coming and there's pizza at the birthday party. I'm like, you're just, it's just entrapment..

"Everyone's going to try to play poker at this point. I just think they're going to be better. I think draymond green will be better. I don't think he goes to for 12. I just don't. I just don't. I expect a better performance finishing an opportunity, not necessarily making threes, although one thing I will say is I felt like draymond green was more there were times in this playoff run and you correct me if I'm wrong. Where remember the best year he had he was making some of those threes and he certainly was willing to take them. I felt like I've seen glimpses of that draymond in this run up. Am I out of my mind on that? He's made some big threes. I just think that draymond is gone forever, the one who hit all those threes in game 7 against the Cavs in 2016 when they lost and all that. I just think that that was a one year jump shot fluke and we're never going to see that guy again and most of his threes are going to look like they did in game one. And by the way, that's fine. He does a lot of other great things and he knows better than anyone how to leverage you ignoring him into getting shots for his teammates. Some things that I'm going to look for for the warriors that I want your thoughts on. I was surprised how often they gave the switch of curry on to Tatum and pool on Tatum. When we just saw them against Luca do so well with Steph hedging out and recovering. And I don't think it killed killed them like Tatum was just three of 17 Steph is pretty physical now in his late prime so to speak. He'll body up people as best he can and forced a couple of tough floaters. The help from the warriors was aggressive in there, but to help has much less distance to travel when Robert Williams is in the dunker spot and Al Horford is in the corner behind him, then it does when there's only one of those guys on the floor and all of a sudden the floor is better space. I wonder if we'll see them try to get under more smart Tatum pick and rolls when smart is the ball handler. Now Tatum has become very good at kind of bulldozing his way down and forcing that switch but maybe more hedging more going under and I thought I was surprised when the warriors went small, I thought one of the benefits of that to them would be they had a little more freedom against Boston small lineups. If they were both small that they would have a little more freedom to play around with who draymond green guarded. Like we could put auto Porter on Al Horford and have draymond on jaylen Brown or Marcus smart or something like that. I thought we might see that and I think we might see it in game two. I think you'll see more draymond on Jalen. That's for sure. To your point about Steph on Tatum, there were two plays in particular back to back possessions where he catches it sort of, you know, step battles him, he catches at mid post area, I feel like he forced one tough shot and forced him to become a passer so to your point, I absolutely think you're going to see more draymond on jaylen. And you made a great point like Steph was really good hedging out and then being cleaned there to get the matchup they wanted defensively, so yeah, and I agree with you about money. If pool can't play, he is your 5th best guy. And just how funny is first of all, a shout to kavan because Steve Kerr said early in the year and he's a 100% right. I had had a Golden State game. And I sort of I described kavan loony as really solid defensively. And Steve Kerr in an interview said blank basically blank that the guy is, you know, and he went on and on about how smart he is. And to come on's credit, he's rebounded at a higher rate. He's finished at a higher rate than he's ever had and he probably doesn't get enough credit for what he does defensively. And the other thing is, I am anxious to see Jordan Poole's response. I am. I this guy earned the trust of those two guys Steph and Dre in that in that 15 and 5 and in the play in game against Memphis. And I was stunned at how young he looked. I do expect him to play better in his minutes. Well, in going through all of those who's the 5th guy options, you know, Porter, Iguodala, aside from Looney, who we know is going to start at center when they go small. Will we see Peyton? Will we see moody? This is a very dumb ass side. I miss Juan toscano Anderson. I was kind of surprised he didn't, he just completely fell out of their rotation. In the regular season because I think he's actually good. Probably too late to play that card Damien Lee is a guest now a deep bench guy. In going through all those options, what I came to in the end was defense aside, not defensive side, but we know what the defensive issues are. They're just going to need pool to win the series. And I don't know if that means they've got to get braver bravers their own work is not like they're not brave, but if they've got to just sort of play that pool party line up a little bit more and see how bad it gets defensively versus how good it can be offensively or just mix and match so he's out there more with their best players and going through those options, I just I'm like they're just, they're just point blank. They're just going to need them. They're going to need them to win the series because Boston is that good. And if that if Jordan Poole is just not good enough to play in this series, he's going to play in this series. We're being sort of a flip saying that but if he's not good enough to be trusted to play 25 or 30 minutes or whatever and he's going to get exploited defensively and you're going to be a net negative, then I think then he's just maybe not as good as he looked in the regular season when the competition gets illegal lead elite because you go through all those answers and I'm like those are all fine kind of stopgap answers, but they just they're going to need Jordan Poole. I refuse to believe that he's just not good enough. It feels like you have to trust what you.

"Take all shapes and forms, paths take all different forms. Draymond green said this last night when he was asked about it. And I, you know, you know, Tim Kyle will call me the great writer out here is talking about is this false bravado from the Golden State Warriors, their reaction saying, you know, draymond green saying, we dominated for 41 or 42 minutes. We feel pretty good. Those guys aren't going to sustain the shooting. Essentially suggesting that it is response. But draymond green's response is we have to do it a different way. We take a different path this year. So we lost and being one. Like this is the drama of this is what makes this league special. You know, listen, I'm going to Napa today, but Sunday can not get here fast enough for me. Give me give me the wine. What's the type of wine you're going to want to sample most? Is there a are you a Sauvignon blanc person or are you a Merlot person? What are we going for today? So the Jimmy Buffett song, there's a song by Jimmy Baba. And it says that frozen concoction that helps me hang on. That's right. And he's talking about margaritas are bigger or whatever. Listen, I am not LeBron James or Kevin Love. I am going up to Napa to be educated. Cassidy halberd has got a spot picked up for out for us. And I'm just gonna go out and enjoy the day and try to pass the hours before the real business at hand, which is game two of the NBA Finals. I'm so jealous. This sounds just tremendous. So you guys are gonna get up to some mischief together in Napa. Remember when after the we believe warriors upset the Mavs in the first round, the top seeded Mavs, Dirk, Dirk, Dirk Nowitzki, like went to the outback and disappeared and grew a beard to reflect on life. If the Celtics lose that game, like Jalen brown or Marcus smart, if I was on the Celtics, I'm just leaving the arena in my Jersey walking into the Gulf of Mexico and just living on a deserted island. Like no one will hear from me and suddenly I'll like swim back with a beard down to my toes and be like, okay, I figured out why with a 5 point lead and 50 seconds left, I drove into bam adebayo's face. I'm ready for the next shot. Like that is a walk into the Gulf of Mexico and vanish for two months level loss..

"I am still recovering shell shocked dazed from the Boston Celtics delivering an absolutely hellacious fourth quarter, 40 to 16 running the warriors out of their own building, which I still refer to as Oracle, even though it's not Oracle, it's not even the same city as Oracle, an absolute just punch right to the face, the Celtics take home court advantage. They take a one O lead, and if I'm a warriors fan, you can look at this one of two ways. You can say, well, they hit 21 threes. Al Horford career high 6 threes, Marcus smart four of 7 Derek white 5 of 8, the three of them combined 15 of 23. They'll never do that again. That's a fluke. That's a just lucky shooting game. And yeah, Tatum was three of 17, but he compensated with 13 beautiful assists. He didn't play that badly. We got this. And if I'm a Celtic to him, say, well, hold on, hold on, hold on. Hold on. Three of 17 is a bad game. You guys shot 19 of 45 from three. It's not that you guys were some slouches from three, we just beat your ass. We wore you down with our size, our defense once we got through the inevitable first ten minutes of like what the hell do we do against this offense where stuff while we lost him again, Omar is smart he's yelling at everybody. Oh my God, once we got through that, you couldn't figure us out and you're not gonna be able to figure us out going forward to help us understand which of those reactions is correct. We have an oh my God, are we lucky? The one and only the Hall of Famer calling this series on ESPN radio with Marquess and PJ carlesimo, Doris Burke. What's up DB? Oh my goodness, Zach. I am so excited to be with you and I have to tell you I feel so incredibly lucky to be calling this series. I think you felt it. I think everybody at ESPN who works on this, you know, bantams go down the line of our incredible group of people. I think we expected this series had the potential to be special. And I'm just going to talk about that warriors crowd for one second. Because it felt to me, and let's remember that this is a knowledgeable basketball crowd, right? Through all those lean years in Oakland, when those fans showed up and were passionate, to me, when the Boston Celtic absorbed that barrage of threes from Stephen Curry and the first quarter. And the game was still tight. And you knew that the Boston Celtics would find their footing because they found their footing through everything all year. I almost felt like there was this dawning realization in the Chase center like, holy. We've got an opponent who is tough. Who is well coached? Who is up for the challenge? And, you know, certainly the third quarter performance, which is been the Golden State Warriors. Probably, you know, enhance their confidence. I don't know where to begin with what has impressed me the most about the Boston Celtics exact. I'll let you start with what impressed you the most. And then I'll react to you, but that fourth quarter, jaylen Brown sort of triggering that fourth quarter, it.

"Happens live. Your beloved nicks are 11 and 11, 16th in offense, 19th in defense, and you know tibs is just straight up grouchy right now about the refs about the defense about probably about the weather about the food he eats, whatever. He's just grouchy. Oh, one of their feet writers say two minute postgame press conference. Quickest one all year, I went out. Yeah, they got to turn those court side mics down in some of these arenas because I'm starting to hear the tips chatter and it's a great time. This is your team Long Island and Jersey Shore's Doris Burke. This is your team. What's the temperature take from you? Well, first of all, my heart heard for Kemba Walker. You know, I have had some best moments, you know. Brennan show a Dave passion I called that run through the biggie's finals. But to me, there were signs of this in Orlando. That was the first time in my life. I'm like, oh boy, you know, can Kemba be kembo? Can he be the guy of a high screen and roll quick into the three point shooting had worked because. Steve Clifford had said you're not going to be successful in this league unless you get consistent from the three pace of price becomes an all star, so that I thought it was the right decision. You know, they feel like they're more switchable, they're bigger, Alec Burks, a little bit more defensive versatility. I'm going to ask you a couple questions. First and foremost, you know, they make the moves get better offensively. Is it me or does it feel like they're getting less consistent focus from Julius or art? I don't know, they feel different defensively. I think we knew they would because they tried to change to a more offensively balanced team. I don't know, I just feel different to me, defensively. I don't know that there is locked in that there is the consistent grinding effort on that side of the floor. Accurate inaccurate. Accurate. I think Randall has been worse, he's been back cut a lot this year and last night, Derek Jones got a baseline out of bounds dunk on him when he just wasn't paying attention. He was quote unquote blitzing, pick and rolls last night, but just sort of standing around doing nothing, not rotating with urgency. He had the best defense of season in his career last year. He's back slid a little bit this year. I think Robinson has just been inconsistent and their centers aren't rebounding. And I think one of the reasons if you ask Tim's why Burke's because I do think Burke's fournier Barrett, it's not quite enough playmaking around Randall, which leads to Randall doing too much Randle ball. But I think part of the reason is rebounding Burke's is a good rebounder. The rest of their guards are bad rebounders. And fournier, look, I thought the fournier signing was fine. I liked it, but I did say I've said this about him in fournier a lot. I look at the numbers, he's up to 39.5% from three. I just never have he's always had this thing in his career and I've said this a lot. This is a new, where I look at the numbers and I watch the games. I just I don't I don't feel that he's impacting the game at a level that fits his numbers part of the reason is he's not as good. He looks like a good playmaker and then you're like, oh, he's averaging 1.6 assists again. He's just not, you just don't feel him. And they're just so dependent when Derek rose comes in the game. There are completely different teams because suddenly someone could get to the basket. They're plus ten with rows on the floor and minus ten with rows off the floor per 100 possessions. They can't start him. They can't play them too much because he'll wear down, but they just feel a little scarily dependent on Derek rose right now to me. Yeah, and it's interesting. And listen, there are never one thing. And look at Julius, you know, from 24 points per game down to 19. Rebounding on par, assist down almost a full one. Effective field goal percentage way down, three point percentage way down, still taken about the same amount. You know, he made 2.3 or 5.53 pointers last year. 41.1% unbelievable. Now 1.85 .4 to jump shot did not hold up in the playoffs. And now it's not holding up this year. RJ Barrett, very similar story, actually taking more threes per game this year, 4.3 last year, 5 at an 8 percentage point dip. So I think there's a lot going on and talked about it himself. He said, I didn't like the direction my team was trending. We needed to make changes. And he did. You know, the question and you, when we were fleshing out ideas for this podcast, you know, one of the things we you mentioned, and you can look up and down the whole standings and see the number of teams within one or two of 500. Have to leave is within one or 205 hundred. Look at the west, 11 and 9 Dallas 12 and ten Memphis 12 and 11 Lakers 11 and 11 clippers 1111 wolves 11 and 12 blazers ten and 11 nuggets, old conference. 11 and 11 sixers 1111 nicks, 1311 hornets, 12 and ten Celtics on and on and on. What reason for optimism? Let's get off in a very good positive note. What's the thing that should give Nick spans hope. I think well, I can think of a few. I think Barrett's shooting was real. And I think so I think Barrett, who was out last night against the bulls with an illness, I think he'll rebound shooting wise. Look, I think the offense has been a little scattershot 16th how much better can it get? Maybe a little bit. 19th on defense, I do think this team is gonna have a stretch where just by force of will top down will. Tips down will. They're gonna dig in and start flying around and have a 15 game stretch where they look like they did last season defensively. And your point is well taken because Mike green on a game earlier, we were discussing the Knicks we weren't covering the Knicks but we were in the pre game situation waiting for people and he did say, remember, the next didn't start out well defensively. There was what you just said a stretch. You got a Christmas tree behind you. You gotta decorate that thing, DB. It's time. It's empty. It's bear. It's a minor miracle that it went up prior to the trip out to San Francisco. The holidays are like just joy to me. So minus up and I'll probably decorate it. Well, you said the word joy. I wish you joy with your family on the holidays. And one joy thing and I'm not saying I said this to you in person. I was in Los Angeles, my first trip to LA this season, I think it was opening week of the season and I didn't because I'm so clueless, I didn't realize that we had the Lakers game.

You look at Anthony Edwards to me, it's like looking at camera if you're just going, oh my God, you want to put together the perfect basketball frame. Like, look out Anthony Edwards. This dude, he's, and I don't use this term loosely. He's overwhelming, physically. People are people are scared of him, physically, because he's so strong and so explosive. Yeah, I don't quite know what my favorite timber was that the lineup they were starting before pat Beverly got hurt. So pat Beverly delo Edwards Vanderbilt cat is plus 86 in 92 minutes. It's wow. It's plus 50 for 5 zero per 100 possessions. My favorite lineup, I think, for the team is Russell Beasley Edwards McDaniels cat and McDaniels again has a made shots. He started to make shots a little recently. That's their apex lineup to me. That line is only played 48 minutes. So I don't know what to make of this team in terms of what they look like 60 games from now, but I know I don't think 11 and 11 is a fluke. I think they're solid. And look, Portland is missing Lillard. They got shellacked at home by the spurs who have won three in a row. Everyone in the west other than those top three is either a mess, IE the Lakers or injured. I don't see any reason why I'm Minnesota.

We talk about better help a lot on this show in this month, we're discussing some of the stigmas around mental health. For example, some people think you should wait until things are unbearable to go to therapy, but that isn't true. Therapy is a tool to utilize before things get worse, and it can help you avoid those lows. Many people think therapies for so called quote unquote crazy people, but therapy doesn't mean something's wrong with you. It means you recognize that all humans have emotions and we need to learn to control them not avoid them. We've been taught to mental health shouldn't be a part of a normal life, but that's wrong too. We take care of our bodies with the gym, the doctor and nutrition. We should be focusing on our minds just as much better help us customize online therapy that offers video phone even live chat sessions with your therapist so you don't have to see anyone on camera if you don't want to. It's much more affordable than in person therapy and you can be match with a therapist and under 48 hours. Give it a try and see why over 2 million.

"Just gonna say that that you know it's bad call or know that that's a i. My personal bill to i think is just telling them like that. It's outside burry are low. Like when i know for sure i'll just tell them like right out like that fall is outside not even close And then go back to doug on. Hold them right. You know you feel like you're you're right when you're on your That right now. Obviously you're going to be a little biased here because you're hitter. But now we've got this whole thing with the pitcher scuffing the ball and using illegal substances foreign substances ever. You wanna call it. Do you think it's being done more now than ever. Do you think people just talking about it and it's always been done sort of the same amount i think. I think it's being done the same amount but i think what the big issue is is. The substances that are being used are better. Write this down right. Yeah this is what i'm curious about. Break this down for me. And i think and listen. I'm not a pitcher. Like you said. I have dougie exactly what's being used but i mean i can tell you that like if you look at the numbers like the spin rates are higher than they've ever been by unknown guys making jumps from you know. I think it's probably physically possible to like you know. Make a hundred or two hundred. Rpm jump you know based on like maybe mechanics or like you know figure out how to hold the ball differently or good pitching coach or whatever but like some of the jumps that we're seeing and spin rate Are like through the roof. You know guys just and you know. The i think the the scientific analysis of it or like the You know the the reason why becomes incrementally more difficult to hey guys when they spin the ball is because everything like a fast array when it's spinning the same it every pitch look the same so like if you can throw a basketball at at you know twenty eight hundred rpm and a breaking ball eight hundred.

eight hundred twenty eight hundred rpm two hundred every pitch a hundred

"That's not something you'd wanna like. When you're game is over you go back to the hotel and you wanna unwind. That's not what you should watch. You know that you got to pay attention to every little split-second of that so it's a little more difficult. Do you have a favorite arena to be in for a game. Well i mean you know. And i think. Tnt made this point last night. Just just how good madison square garden. I've said for years people probably disagree. Member. i'm shaded because of where. I grew up new york niches. I just think when the knicks are good It makes a difference in the nba. In i could be crazy on but that place is really really special. Golden state i in that run in and it was loud. It was so so so loud. Wash angeles lakers are a lot of fun. You know you can feel the energy especially when they're good stars around that's the funk lace Do you ever do you ever. I mean obviously this will have to be pre covid. But do you have any stories about your at staples. Doing a lakers game and one of the celebs is trying to talk to you or me. You know you have a thing with about someone you know jack say like hey dr is. How's it going. No i've always wanted to say to jack. He and i share the same high school. Jack went to madison high school in the jersey shore. And i've never had that opportunity to To say it because you know. It's funny when los angeles last titles You know i was relatively new to the sideline -sition. So i i didn't have time nor did i have the confidence to be going up to the jets at that moment but yeah always stay bringing. We're both men swan warriors here. That would lead to a good conversation. He last thing. I'm just curious about doing sideline give me when you did sidelines. And now doing the color for the game. What is the most difficult thing about each. The sideline is probably An- it's funny. I hold the first time. I did sideline so while ago. I didn't. I didn't have any experience my call to people i called altro i called. Michelle mccoy Both were extremely helpful. And i'll never forget without trout He said dr. So they're going to be nights. Where you get off the air as sideline reporter near going to feel really good about what you did that you helped. Elevate the experience for the viewer. And you're gonna feel like you participated and it was great because there's going to be far more nights where you get off the air and you think to myself. Oh my god. They paid me to do that. You prepare the same way as the the analyst in the play by play but the fact of the matter is gain dictates whether or not you get into the show. Or sometimes it may be the producer philosophic we believe the role. Maybe who knows. There's a million things that may contribute to. What's your impetus the sideline reporter. So you have to be prepared to leave a lot of stories in your pocket. The analyst role on.

How Doris Burke Became An Accidental Pioneer

"We'll. So Dana I can you tell us a little bit about your own relationship with Doris Burke Yeah? I'm Lucky Kavita I. Mean I worked at ESPN for eight years. So Doris was one of the people that I interacted with frequently. I mean we had so much in common with our love for college basketball and we would just chat at games or she shoot me a text. Love that story that you did today you are. You're just you know you did a great job you knocked it out of the park or I would text her. So we've gone back for years and She's just always been the same. That's the coolest thing I can say about Dr is I don't care if she's super popular people are making t-shirts. Drake and all this, and she's still the same that she was when I first met her how would you describe her on air personality and her style in the booth I think what people like about Dr She's She's she's very intelligent and on point about all of her observations, he's got US billy. Donovan says excellent lower body strength and he doesn't reach over. Don't give the official even a window cut the angle. She is not loud. She's not there's no stick to her tough shot contest. Yes. Yes she says something and she really hones in her. She really calls somebody out everyone's Kinda like both. To Me is where Andrew Wiggins has stood in the corners on several possessions. Like steals reporter to. And if you talk to people in the game, they actually say that they they are very respectful of her opinion and they know if she has a problem with something, then there's a problem. We'll Dana you recently wrote a profile on doors for the athletic I. can you tell us a little bit about her background and her early days? She's like a lot of us or at least like me you know kids that grew up just interested in sports. Super. Star Sable. Start Tonight number eleven she moved from Long Island to the Jersey shore to a small town happened to be a park across the street and a basketball hoop and it was like divine intervention right? She hadn't really played a lot of basketball growing up in Long Island. But when she moved, she was young enough that she just that's where she went and there was never a sense of Oh Doris girls don't play sports. It was just whatever you're busy go outside and play sable from outside. and. So she just became a really good ballplayer where really good basketball players are often developed, which is on the playgrounds took all comers boys girls didn't care. The BUZZER GUARD SABLE Head. And grew into a good enough. Basketball players to get a scholarship to providence. We forget that that was a really big deal for young women. Athletes are just weren't a lot of them. That wasn't normal and she recognize it immediately as what it was. It was a ticket for her to get to college and pay for college and established herself in a career. She wasn't there was no WNBA obviously, she knew that this was the path for her future in her life and she just kinda followed it along. Well, she definitely likes to make fun of herself when talking about in her plane, I had it all going on bad hair bad teeth bad clothes, and the only thing I care about whether my jump shot would ever Mack my triple driveability. She does she downplays herself. She doesn't think she wasn't. You know whatever she wasn't the greatest player. You know she was more of a thoughtful player than a an athletic player that sort of thing. Yeah. I mean she's very self deprecating even about her broadcasting career, which is just hilarious. But again, that's what makes Dr. Stars is that she doesn't take herself too seriously. How did she get her start in broadcasting accidentally which I think I can relate that myself but in her circumstance she was coach she went back to providence to be a coach but then she got married and she got to look around. You know this was back when there weren't a lot of. MOMS that were coaches, you know a lot of coaches, maybe one or the other they couldn't do both and she really thought I want to start a family. So she stepped away from coaching and by Dumb luck at the same time Providence decided you know what? We could put a couple of women's basketball games on the radio and we need somebody to do the radio for us and Ella Dar's. You're sitting there. Why don't you do this and she did and she jokes pie five people are listening you probably honestly not wrong. Let's be honest providence women's basketball and some regional network probably not like drawing huge numbers but she loved it and it was easy and it was comfortable and that just sort of Begat one opportunity after another and an big break came because one of the men's basketball. Analyst for the Big East Games couldn't make it into a providence men's game and they were desperate and that she tells us hilarious story was at the emergency room with her son. He had fallen off the weight bunch cut his head open blood everywhere. She's GONNA to bloody shirt and they told her to come down and do play by play and she said, well, I can't play by play but I'll do the color and boom she's on TV and there she. Is I mean no intent to climb some corporate ladder it just sort of opportunity presented itself and she took it.

NBA Storylines Down the Stretch

"Doris Burke is an NBA analyst for ESPN so doors the All star break is over and NBA. Games are back. We wanted to talk to you. About what surprised you so far this season. And how you see the last couple of months shaping up as we enter the homestretch before the playoffs. Let's start in the East right where there is an unequivocal number. One team in Milwaukee they have the best record in the NBA and they are destroying teams winning by an average margin of victory of more than twelve points per game now of the eleven teams that have had a double digit margin of victory over the course of a season. Eight have gone on to win it. All Doris. Is there something that stands between Milwaukee and the NBA Finals? Yeah this is a great question. So in their eight losses the one thread that is consistent throughout those are teams are averaging sixteen point nine threes and philosophically. Their priority is protect. The paint. First and foremost they are so elite. At that that we have not seen this kind of rim protection in the modern NBA. With the possible exception of Spurs team that had both Tim Duncan and David Robinson but the fact of the matter if a team gets hot and really can create shot opportunities then. I think that they can be beat. The other thing that happens is your and you saw in the All Star game. Jaanus is the first player to go twenty five and eleven back to back all star Games but he was over to note points in the fourth quarter because they did playoff teams. We'll do they set up a wall and they said somebody else is going to beat us so well. No one's really doubting the bucks at this point. I think there is still a lot of skepticism about the number two seed in the east the Toronto Raptors. I mean after losing finals. Mvp Kawhi Leonard. They were not seen as favorites coming into this year yet. They have the same record right now that they had at this point last season doors one hand the raptors have been under five hundred against winning teams but on the other they had a lot of. Are we underestimating them? While I'm definitely giving them punchers chance to get to the Eastern Conference finals and a punchers chance to come out in the past historically particularly when Demar Derozan Kyle lowry. Were on the team together. What we knew was they understood how to win in the regular season but they're always seemed to be this level of doubt in their minds when the calendar turn to April but the fact of the matter is. They changed that a year ago with championship. There is a different feel a different presents a different countenance about the entire group and yes unequivocally the record versus plus five hundred versus minus five hundred is concerning but let's remember that their top six guys including Serge Ibaka. Who's having the Best Year of his career? Kyle lowry Markelle Saul Fred Van Bleed. Norman Powell Pascal them. All six of those guys have missed at least ten games so I don't know that we have the clearest picture the other thing working in their favors they have one of the best coaches in the league. Nick nurse wears that head coaches mantle with ease. Why because he's been calling the shots for the vast majority of his career. In any number of circumstances his creative he's fearless. He's a little bit irreverent. And I'm telling you mean ah I give them a punchers chance to get to an east finals and a punchers chance to get out. Did you see this coming at all? Doors not even close and this is the question really ultimately. Do they have enough offense in what you're seeing is to me. What appears to be this grooming of Pascal? Ceac him of all right. You gotta go get your own in those minutes and a playoff circumstance where you don't care whether it's a mid range to a fall away jump shot a jump shot under duress of excellent defense. What matters is I need to put the ball in the basket right now because this game is teetering on our control or there's and we've got to have one and you're watching Pascal. Can he deliver in the postseason? He's been excellent in the regular season. I can't wait to see a play out. I think it feels right now. Like you've got the bucks in a tier of their own and then you've got the raptors celtics heat kind of swirling around each other. There was a feeling ahead of the trade deadline that the heat could vault to that number. Two spot perhaps even contend with the bucks if they really went all in and added Gala Nari. They didn't they did add Igwe Dolla. Do you think that's enough? You know the the last prism through which I saw. Andre Gonzala was a man who was battling an Achilles in the playoff series and seemed to be showing the signs of some age. But what I know. Unequivocally is this man from a basketball intellect standpoint. According to Kerr is one of the smartest in the history of the League. He has got championship. Dna He's got positional versatility on the defensive end that basketball intellect and the ability to process information quickly and to do it under the spotlight of the playoffs. He has all of that. I'm anxious to see how he changes the dynamic the Miami Heat. You know this. They're going to play hard defensively every single night. They're going to mix in one of the most effective zones we see in today's NBA and Eric's bolster is outstanding coach. So right now sitting in that fourth spot how far Jimmy Butler can take them. That'll be interesting. Those young guys. Right Duncan Robinson Tyler Hero Kendrick Nunn all those guys who have performed so well in the regular season when the calendar switches. Can you win with them? Let's see

"To five the fanatic boston wins doris burke called it on espn and watched his philly made turnover after turnover after over it's a theme that was one thing that haunted philly throughout the course of the year let's remember in the regular season this team turned it over to a greater degree than any other nba team all year in critical moments it looked to me all night as if boston was the more mature more disciplined team in critical moments you think about a rare turnover from jj redick where he looked like he was going to give it right back to ben simmons that doesn't happen there their failure to execute down the stretch and it's so interesting because going all the way back to november i had a private conversation with jj radic and he said doris if we figure out the turnover situations we're going to be a very tough team to be you wonder if this is just a step they've gotta get past to to have more success in the future in the playoffs because it's haunted him all year and now this young philadelphia seventy six or team is one loss away potentially one game away from having their wonderful season it come to an.
