And again, the Lake 'cause I've shown, again, when they play the hardest, they all, again, just buy me a game where they play the hardest and they didn't win. And lately, like you said, they're Marge of error. It's just too small to not play with effort in a game to try to win. And again, tonight, I don't think Russ played with enough effort and I think him Missy a lot of those labs kind of affected his effort and just energy as a whole. So yeah. Red cloud said imagine Russ on the second unit full time, he'd be unstoppable there, no second unit in the NBA can handle his explosion of energy, Lakers would have offensive consistency. You would think that that wasn't the case. We saw it. A stretch at the end of the third, LeBron goes out, Russ is in there. Wizards started catching up. Got pretty bad for a bit there. Russ started taking Dirk one legged fadeaway banks. Bank shots. Yeah. And again, I don't mean to pile on Westbrook too much. This wasn't a good game for him, but I'm saying that that line of thought, it makes sense. Yeah, hey, run west with a second unit, and LeBron's not in. Russ, here's the ball. Go. That was part of the idea coming in. Was finally the Lakers aren't going to fall to pieces when the bronze off the floor because Russell Westbrook can run the offense. It hasn't always worked out that way. And again, it does make sense when you look at things on paper. It should work. But we've seen numerous occasions this season where Russ has had the chance to go on his own and it hasn't worked. It hasn't. It's worked sometimes. But yeah. Look at the hornets game. There's been cases where it's worked, but I'm glad you brought up that stretch to start the fourth quarter where I mean, we were on the live broadcast saying, okay, Frank, call timeout, please. Because Russ was just shooting bad shots. He wasn't being locked in defensively. And again, we're not here to pile on Ross or whatever he has been that good this season, but it just wasn't a good game for him. And that's really as bare knowledge you could say or whatever. It was a good rest of Westbrook again. And you can honestly leave it at that without having to go too deep into it. This is an interesting one. Question says, would you do Russell Westbrook for kristaps porzingis and fillers? The wizards fan base was one fan base that I found that was not opposed to bringing back Russell Westbrook. Now, most of the scenarios, this was a bot out wrestle Westbrook. They were okay with bringing him back in. But he did have some success there last year.

It's kind of remarkable that Simmons and Hardin have ended up in this situation they've ended up in his all I'm saying. I'm just going to throw out one more though. I know that I think it was Peter who was praising the wizards in the winner's pod that we did. I think the wizards of mavericks are like dual losers for this two way salary dump basically. Like the Mavericks had to basically decide that porzingis was a bad investment so they dump him off on the wizards who realized very quickly that Spencer Dinwiddie and Davis Burton's their last two big free agent signings were bad investments. And so neither of them it's not catastrophic, it's not a bad deal. It's not a great deal. But it was both sides having to admit to pretty big recent poor investments. So I just want to throw them in there. Howard real quick to clear my name, I said everyone who left the Washington Wizards was a winner. The exact opposite. For Washington. All right, sorry. Maddox was pumping up the wizards for their blockbuster acquisition. I think Dallas is a bit of a loser in this one. I mean, porzingis is better than the Dinwiddie Burton's combination. I don't know. I don't even know. I don't know, but they're running into problems finding the right talent around Luka Dončić. Like they are. Like they haven't been able to identify even the type of players that work around him. So maybe I mean, didn't what he's kind of ball dominant to at times like, how's that going to work? Opposite Dončić, like, can you back in the Western Conference? Will DOM has been Texas? Will Davis Burton's find his shooting stroke once again? That's another one. I don't know. They're rolling the dice that they catch lightning in a bottle there and did what he just needed to get away from Washington Berkeley..
Dallas Mavericks Sign Free Agent Frank Ntilikina
"The mass have a whole new front office in a whole new coaching staff. With jason kidd coming in. So i think there will be at least some sort of honeymoon. I don't know exactly. How long is all these new key. Figures get used to each other. But you're you're absolutely right. I mean dallas had big ambitions in free agency. They wanted to get kyle lowry. They thought lowry would be an ideal fit next deluca given his defense leadership being an old head the way and still shoot it lowry. They thought was ideal. Lowery went to miami forced his way there in a sign and trade and dallas's moves have also been just of the around the edges variety bringing in reggie bullock. I reported this week that they're close to signing frank ntilikina. That should happen but the mavs have not been able to make the splashy move and really. They're splashing move is going to have to be. Can they get kristaps porzingis. Back to the level he was playing at in the walt disneyworld bubble before he he sustained the second major knee injury of his
"kristaps porzingis" Discussed on Debate Amongst Friends With Doc & Prof
"He's been in every situation that he possibly could be an started. He's rotational blair. He's been a bench player. I'm seeing. He started out a big part of the process. And maybe the process ended with him in reality I think they already had two bigs by the time they drafted him. Maybe this is where the process went. So it'd be hat knows well right in dry him him jalil lan which may have been the mistake. Maybe that's where the process went downhill. Davis should should've went in a different direction. But i don't wanna go process with iran. We don't regard back into that crap. But i feel bad for Because yes so much potential He really i would say this. Think me big duke guy right For even in that draft wasn't i don't think he was a top. I don't think he was talking about big But this is hindsight now. You know what. I'm saying foresight. I can't say that because of hindsight like is easy to say that you know we talked about who bleacher report with redraft like the past ten years. And i'm like i feel like that's fair. Times are so they do it every day to. It's pretty much a month after the draft happens. Do read your but in. So i can say this in that particular draft dot five really quickly karl anthony towns de ngelo russell jalil ghafour kristaps porzingis in mareo hussan. Yeah so i mean looking back at the draft. I'm looking through really quickly just to see you know in the first round who i would replace them with own person. I could think of would be miles. Ternate actually no. I take that back devon booker. Evan booker number thirteen. Obviously you had. Karl anthony accounts who obviously led the wildcats kentucky at that particular time. Then you have willie colleague don who had great potential and honestly i had a huge hopes for trey. Lyles aren't though trae allows would have been the dream on green esq player. But i don't think he's been used properly. I don't think so. Then you have devon booker So just thinking about that is what makes what brings jalil okafor stack down. A lot of people trying to think was in that draft. Justin winslow who people one of my favorite players. Sam dekker just kidding. Obviously orders in that draft as a bb. But we'll have key. Keep an island back but johnny. I know you heard this. Podcast on your favorite podcasts platform. But if you didn't you can always go to our website at.

"kristaps porzingis" Discussed on Open Floor: SI's NBA Show
"That's where it gets tough year and lonzo even though he's six years younger than c. j. c. j. I would rather have cj on my team even on that contract You know if. I was if i was Portland here. I would probably like need something else from new orleans to like i would want. I would ask for like jackson hayes or cairo. Louis or one of those lakers picks and the deal just dies. So that's kind of that's kind of how. How so i kind of you'd it but we have actually another fake trade involving. Cj so buckle in this one comes in from from for marco who writes i came up with the trade and would love to know what you guys think. Some of the picks could be reworked. But i'll let you be the judge. So in marcos fake trade the bucks gets cj mccollum and robert covington the blazers get chris middleton and kristaps porzingis and the dallas mavericks. Get yousef nurkic a first round. Pick from the bucks. In a first round. Pick from portland. And mark marco marco goes onto explain his logic for all sides including dallas's incentive to clear cap space for the maps to build around luca. Now before you answer chris right off the jump. I just have to say that it's very interesting Queue up the russell westbrook the draft. Pick sierra little bit of an issue as admits since the bucks can't trade any of theirs in perpetuity after the holiday trade and the blazers over there. Two thousand twenty one i to the rockets. But i you know if the blazers were willing to include to future i to get something like this done. I don't know if that would work. I mean salary wise. I think it does check out but all that you know. S the preamble. Chris what do you think of this absolutely monstrous Victory that marcus. Yeah i've been so again props. I i don't have the Like i'd never i guess. I'm a little young for the tetris generation. But i've never had the patience to sit through on the trade where they got the trade not trade doctors. They call man. I'm young but i'm old in the sense that i can't even remember what a trade machines so shout out to anybody that has the patience to to play with those and work with those So my purse thought looking at this is kinda man it's a. It's a really optimistic viewpoint. The teams are going to be willing to give up first round. Picks for kristaps porzingis. If anything it seems like the opposite may have to be true there with dallas. I'm not even sure what their situation is. Absolutely give extra get porzingas in the first place. But he has a lot of money left on his deal for someone who's been relatively injury prone over his career who i think we're seeing quite clearly is not really reliable consistently reliable second option for a contender. So you know that that that's asking a lot to get to fix back for him even in a cap clearing sort of situation. That was one of my thoughts with this. The other thought. I had and i don't know like maybe we can get more clarity on. The dust will settle a little bit too game from now. You know if milwaukee is fortunate. Maybe maybe i guess five games from now but Chris middleton you know for as much as he struggled in this series up to this point had a really good postseason. He wanna game for them. Very clearly I don't know that they'll walkie. I don't know it'll be interesting to see what sorts of changes milwaukee wants to make if they get smoked here and the second round the way that is happening right now because at this point it'll be clear that you probably need to shake up..
Doncic and Mavs Beat Clippers 127–121, Take 2–0 Series Lead
"King to goes to the Mavericks one twenty seven to one twenty one Dallas takes a two oh series lead Luka don church led the way with thirty nine points Tim Hardaway junior had twenty eight Kristaps porzingis finished with twenty the mavs made eighteen three pointers Kawhi Leonard and Paul George combined to score sixty nine of the clipper points while the rest of the squad totaled only fifty two Leonard with a game high forty one I am mark Myers
Doncic’s 31 Points Lead Dallas Mavericks Over Jazz
"Utah. Dallas luka doncic. Talking about those guys would pay to see well hill win and mvp down the road this one season. It's not it. He started slowly and his team suffered because of it but the mavs have won five straight. They're two games. Back from the sixty they toppled a jazz team. That couldn't hit a three and that was part of it for sure. They're kind of like the nuggets mavericks. Our team started slow. And here they come. They found her identity. A little bit without kristaps porzingis. Who was sitting this one out. They beat those utah jazz. It was an off night for you to snapping their streak. That's fine they can have can have an off night.
A Deep Dive Into Rudy Gobert After the Jazz Lose To Denver
"Talk about Rudy. Gobert. What? What do we want to know about mr. Gaubert because I thought before today and obviously today is Sunday. I thought before the day that he was running away with the defensive player of the year award. And then today happened today happened. I would not go as far as running away with the defensive player wage. I thought he was running away. I thought it was a significant gap between him and everybody else. So I totally understand why you would say that their top five and defense coming into town today. They're really really good team Utah. They are arguably playing better before today than anybody in the NBA just point blank. Especially now that the Lakers have hit like off a bit of a bit of a malaise having said that I'm still saying Anthony Davis Ford Prince of player of the year because they've number one defense and he's the one the keys the number one defense in the NBA off. He's by far the most versatile defender in the NBA Rudy I think is a reasonable like honestly probably would be second for me right now Myles Turner has a case sneaky class that I've been advocating as much as I can Larry Nance would probably be in my top five right now. He is the whole reason that the Cavs have a reasonable defense. Yep. Right now a top-10 defense, but I digress nonetheless Rudy gobert has been very very good for the Utah Jazz this year and I thought that Utah's games this week. We're kind of a perfect encapsulation of the Rudy gobert experience against Dallas. He was the reason that they just come holy month and utterly annihilated the Mavericks in both of those games and I watched the first one close cuz I bet on Dallas because Utah was without Donovan Mitchell was without a favors and Dallas was getting back Dorian finney-smith was getting back to like Powell. I thought that they'd take that energy and catch you too on the back end of a back-to-back and be kind of run away with that game and that absolutely one hundred percent was the wrong side to be on and in large part. It was because of the incredible grass. City that Rudy gobert holds as a pick-and-roll offensive threat, he is completely obliterated kristaps porzingis in that in those two games like butterwood obliterated him like wipe them off the face of the Earth on both ends. He averaged 23 points and 16 rebounds. He had like three blocks. He had a couple of steals. He was dead thing that people who are Jazz fans and that yell from the rooftops about Rudy. Gobert. He was everything in those two games that people say about Rudy being like a top-12 impact player in the NBA. You'll hear sometimes in this game today against Denver Nikola jokic made him look like a parking cone on defense and
Mavs' Kristaps Porzingis has meniscus tear, ruled out against Clippers
"Mavericks. Just issued a statement that kristaps porzingis has a torn meniscus. For the rest of the playoffs. We. Burden on our Friday which means that the clippers clippers who have a three two edge in Syria likely committed Vance. That's too bad. Because they are fun to watch together. That's too bad. So the clippers by the way place Sunday, the Lakers play tomorrow four o'clock pre-game six o'clock tip as basketball returns after just a crazy and unprecedented week
Los Angeles Clippers Take Game 1 From Dallas Mavericks After Porzingis Ejected
"The nuggets raptor. Celtics. Clippers. Pick up the win a little bit of drama and the Clippers victory because I didn't think kristaps porzingis deserved to be thrown from that game he got elected. I thought Morris should have been injected as well for the clippers because he's the one who initiated this if if he doesn't start it then it doesn't get to Porzingas they're trying to stick up for Ludovic don-shik with forty two but did have eleven turnovers if porzingas plays that game I, think I think the mavs win it
Is Zion Living Up to the Hype for the Pelicans?
"Were in Dallas for the pelicans overtime loss to the Mavericks. Second night of a back to back for New Orleans obviously but we didn't see the Zion. We've sort of been spoiled by over the last month. So what did you get from Zion? On Wednesday night. I saw someone who had to go through a little bit of adversity. There's two different things working against him in that Dallas Game One. It was the first time he played on a back to back. You didn't see his legs under him. Early actually play but gets the block on Williamson Williamson. Took his time getting up court. You may be subbing out of the ball game here. He is drew and Lonzo Ball. We're GONNA come on up to him. Hey man you you're right you you tired. Are you going to play? You GotTa pick one. The other thing. Going against him was Dallas they started Maxi Kluber alongside of kristaps porzingis specifically for Zion Williamson two. That might have been forcing a psychotic burst that is just perfectly played deep that still by Dallas Cleveland's doing A. They went to the formula. That's been working. Which is the. We're GONNA get the tallest guy we have can defend him to do it. And then have another seven footer. Awesome plus footer at the Rim Ryan got blocked inside again. It's not possible in less. Cleber is being this physical and allowing time for kristaps ticket over there. Lieber six ten obviously porzingas seven three. Those have been the only really match ups that have given him problems when they played the box. Janas guarded him and then you have the Lopez twins behind him. Protecting the RIM defers Lakers game. Anthony Davis guarded him. And you had jovial and Dwight rim so that combination kind of went against his favor so walk me through a little bit of the process on the back to back portion of it because this is obviously part of the Adjustment For Zion. So where do you find the line? If you're the PELICANS in trying to get him experienced doing things like back to backs that he'll be asked to throughout his career and then also sort of adjusting him since he is still getting fresh on the court after an injury yeah so initially David Griffin the PELICANS executive vice president of basketball operations who should have a shorter title. It's a mouthful say every time I don't know I mean if you're going to have a title let's go big with it like if I'm going to have a business card the whole front of it's going to be my title and the backs. Just going to say fits. There's not not my first name. Just I'm pretty sure that's what his business card says. I haven't seen one but I'm pretty sure that's it has to read like that initially As I was coming back from the injury. Grif said he wasn't there. Were probably going to take it easy on back to backs. Now the good thing that kind of worked into their favor there was January. Twenty second was when he made his debut since then the Tuesday Wednesday back to back that they just had was the first time they had a back to back so they got to let him get games under his belt. He mentioned to his own Tuesday. You know I have to do the recovery if I want to perform the way that I'm capable of performing as you try to push for or is this your mutual agreement Little bit of both but I need a push for myself because I gotTa do the recovery of I want to be able to perform. We do every night with that. Being said coming off the knee injury there were reports that he was learning how to walk differently. How to run differently? I mean when they're watching him and they're monitoring and what are they looking for his indicators of his health very funny to me because I think George Sodano said that I think on ESPN broadcast and it just kind of blew up. He's learning how to walk and anybody who's been through physical therapy at any point that I for any sort of knee. Injuries foot injury. Whatever it is can tell you. They will relearn how to walk in physical therapy. The learning how to walk and run differently was more about little things in his gate that they wanted to fix. The biggest thing that they really wanted to correct at that time was how he landed when you go back and watch how he landed at. Duke with these huge one handed slam traffic. He's landing on one foot one of the big things you see. Now when he goes up for a dunk whether it's an alley whether he's just throwing it down to hands. He tries to land on two feet as much as possible. Zeile yeah that the to hand flush and a great entry fee for Lonzo Ball over Kunst buck to finish that would KUPA gotta be thinking. What in the world so. It's little things that maybe you don't know at nineteen years old that the Pelicans are trying to instill in him so they can take a little bit of stress off of his knees. The biggest thing you just said is nineteen if you listen to Zion. He'll make sure he tells you. He's nineteen in just about every other interview. I feel like I mean but doesn't right like we are so busy trying to make him either the savior of a lead. That doesn't need to be saved or the reason that we're over. Hyping somebody to the point that people ridicule how much we talk about it but you look at it at some point. Say this is a nineteen year old kid. We're talking about that is absolutely crushing in a limited sample size. So let's turn the tone positive here for a second you're looking at a nineteen year old kid. What he's doing is unprecedented right. It's absolutely unprecedented. Feel like every other night we were finding ways to start a sentence with Zion Williamson. Doing something and we ended it with Michael Jordan or Shaquille O'Neill or Tim Duncan or wilt. Chamberlain the goes on and on and on. And you're like that doesn't make sense.

The bucks made it sort of a furious. Finish to make it into a close game but it was just has porzingas and seth curry who carried the maps. What do you think about this big win over the bus for the it's a great win for the mass and for me it was a confidence boost for KRISTAPS Porzingis?
