"They do have, I think they do it in the airport though because you have to, you have to cover a good amount of distance in such a short amount of time. It makes sense there, but you walk on them. You're not supposed to just stand on the course. Escalators, same thing. The sidewalks started like having a trevail boat over them and they go. I forgot all about that kind of stuff, yeah, but I mean, yeah, we got shit, man. We really, I mean, we got nothing that we were promised. When I was a kid growing up and they were like, oh, half life three. We don't have we have rockets that land on their butts. The first time I saw a rocket land vertically, I was legit like that. Yes. In fact, issues with Elon aside, nor. That was awesome. Elon is like pushing, you know, and these companies beneath the device. Well, so we don't need to get in that direction, but multiple fronts. Yeah, go ahead. So they did basically buy Twitter now, didn't they? He did. What was that about 5% 12%? 9% of so he's now the biggest shareholder of Twitter. Well, I think it was around 9%, but dude. Here's the thing. I am occasionally I'll have a really good idea. An idea that I feel is ahead of its time. Occasionally, we're talking three in my life where I'm like, wow, I'm ahead of and they never work out because I'm also lazy. So I'll be like, wow, that sounds awesome. I'll fall asleep. Is the guy that will buy Twitter and he will do something on it that will not that will be like, why the fuck did I not think of that? And that's what I'm actually hoping for. That's the mark before he bought the shares. He posted like a poll from what I know. Do you want an edit button? Yeah. And it was announced that he bought the shares. Yeah, I mean, you got that too. But just the news that he bought the shares already sent his shares up 22%. 22%. If you have a little bit of money, if you just follow Elon and his and his investments, you know, go ahead. And what's crazy, he'd be very vocal about what he'd be investing into. Like he does not care. No, no, no. Well, he's got in trouble too by saying that he doesn't care. His own stock sometimes where he's like, I don't think it's worth buying ourselves. That's what I like. Here's the thing. You know you have fuck it money when your own stocks, you don't give a shit and you're just like, yeah. It's probably not worth buying our stock right now and you're like Jesus. You know the board behind the scenes is like, what is he doing? I could just see the board just like a finding out their Twitter. Like, he said, what? Dude, but that's a thing. He is smoking weed with Joe Joe. Like you said, edit, there will be something that we and other people can do this too. I don't think anybody thought Amazon selling books was going to turn into what it did. Even though people have very valid issues with a lot of these things. But I just think it's amazing when people are able to come up with these ideas where I'm like, wow, not NFTs. They have fucking socks, right? Some ideas are bad. But when you see some of these ideas and you're just like, holy shit, that's a rocket landed on its ass. And he's just like, we'll go to Mars. And you start to believe them.

"There are issues, but the FPS especially on consoles was radon, not releasable. Like if I was the developer for that, it would have been like, no way, guys. Like, we can't. Especially when the game, here's the problem. If you hinge on something, then it needs to be good. So if I go to like the combine for the NFL, as a sprinter, and like a receiver, and I'm slow, people will be like, what the fuck are you here for for that? You should be a center. You fatty. But what happens in games is they'll be like destruction. You can destroy anything. At 5 FPS. And you're like, the fuck does that? That makes no sense. Fix your shit before you're release it and control had terrible FPS. It was just had issues everywhere. Cyberpunk got released. And then DLSS fixed it. Control really picked up for me when you got the levitation spell ability. I felt like I got it. I like control. I thought it was unique enough, enjoyable enough to play. I like their worlds too. I like the mix of Alan Wake. I mean, I'm a sucker for their X files, I guess, right? Isn't that what you'd call there? They do it well. They do. Supernatural paranormal paranormal weird shit. Low fantasy. And in the mixture, well, this is why I like weird west. Is the mixing of the different games. In weird west it mixes characters you've been. But that mixing of narratives where you're like, wait, that's called AE, like Alan Wake experience, AWE, what the fuck is that? And then you start like meta everything. And then the things that probably aren't real, you start thinking. You start thinking about how a fallout is actually in the oblivion universe. Oh my God, we talked about this. Dude. So fallout and oblivion, right, is one. And then the other one that silver was arguing with me with. I'm going to stand by it and just say, no. But which is warhammer and warhammer RPG..

"If all that's true, halo not only doesn't have that, it doesn't even have the Staples halo is known for. As well as co op. And what halo could have done is something that other companies couldn't do, which is make a popular multiplayer without needing to be free to play. If there's any company out there that's got the money, they bought fucking Activision. They bought a continent. I mean, that's fucking more than a lot of entire nations are worth. So if they can do that and now they're just saying, oh shit, we gotta hire for halo or whatever red was saying what fucking they ate the potato. They didn't just use it as a bong. They fucking swallowed it afterward. Like a potato factory. Yeah. How do you get to that point? And they're the only I agree with, I see what you're saying, like the current competition. But here's the thing, halo is now watching where everybody goes and then says, let me get to the front so I can lead them. And that makes, that's not a leader. They try to jump the line. Exactly. Halo could have said is remember EA single player games are dead and then what happens? A bunch of fucking single players are like fuck you and they go out and they do amazing titles. And EA is like, hey, we were wrong. Microsoft doesn't need to have not only not delivered all of the shit that they're known for, but also separated two things that could keep you playing. For example, when I'm playing multiplayer, let's say I was waiting for a game for you. And it's all contained in one spot. I might say, I'm going to do a level of halo single player or co op. And then I'm going to jump into multiplayer with you guys. Everything's just sort of contained. Now it's fucking everywhere. It just, I don't know, man. I do have a hate boner for those guys. It's now come to this point to where whatever happened with Master Chief collection feels like it's now happening. Or has continued to happen, I guess. Here's how I think that they should have done. I don't know how to developer. I can only look off the trends that I see that goes on through the years. I feel like you can't like, I can't really go out and say that free to play what in the right move when they didn't do it right. Like, I felt like they put the money before the free to play. Like, they're like, okay, you're not going to, you're not going to pay for this game, but you're going to give us money. Like having the bundles outpacing else. I think that's the catalyst, though, because they had such a unique thing going with their multiplayer that was different than other multiplayer. Exactly. They always had that unique thing and unique progression and everything through gameplay you can earn and mix and match between single player and multiplayer and all that stuff..

"And it has been since day one, so the expectation is that it was already in the game that you buy. So to me, I was like, free to play. It doesn't really mean as much, I guess, is it did to everybody else? Because I was like, I was already getting it when I bought the single player game. But what bothered me is I was trying to tell people what's going to happen is you're going to have two separate style games to separate development cycles to completely different things where even you guys have worked in offices where somebody working on a completely separate thing bumps into somebody else and they talk and suddenly an idea between the two comes up, this genesis of information, right? And I got shit on a lot for saying that was going to happen. And that's where we are. It is, it is exactly where we are. And one of the reasons why I think with halo, even if you like the multiplayer, guys, you can't say it's awesome. That multiplayer is when their own developers step down. Hey, we know you guys are out of patience. That's the developer. So if you have an issue with what I'm saying, talk to the developer because they agree. They have an issue. And I do feel that because it's not combined with the single player game, the single player game just came and went. And now you have people on Twitter going, well, I hope the multiplayer. Well, there's no call. Right. All this stuff, if it had succeeded, all that momentum would have gone into the continuation of the single player, the continuation of the co op, and the continuation of the multiplayer. What we have now is we don't even know what we're getting. For the single player. Like, are you getting an expansion? Are they doing, is there going to be new chapters? And I'm sure somebody probably has been watching something. Maybe they've mentioned this. But what I mean is it's not in the zeitgeist at all. And then is not even, it just keeps getting pushed back. And multiplayer is sort of a mess. And I firmly do believe that this was a huge misstep. And guys, I got to say, man, they haven't done well with halo. Master Chief collection was a fucking turd. Of unbelievable proportions that, by the way, again, if you disagree with me, talk to Microsoft because they actually abandoned for years. It was abandoned for years. And we get the same thing now. I liked the single player of infinite. Yeah..

"Like that play with. I WANNA like thirty seconds to go where he has crowder isolated on the right wing can't shake him with the hesitation and then gets the shot blocked and it's a shot clock violation. That is completely inexcusable and not like anything that I've seen from the Celtics in a a late game spot in any type of spot that type of fence just can't happen and I don't think it will going forward my other my I think my bigger issue is just defensively. So in my opinion, the biggest play of the game was celtics up five after Kemba hits a step back from the left elbow over I think Jimmy Butler on a switch and Celtics up five minute left and they come down Kemba Walker has guarding tyler hero. There's a little screen action at the top of the key and he thinks that Marcus smart is switching and markets like no. I'm just staying with my dude because this wasn't even a hard screen and Kemba is just like it's one of those rare miss communications that the celtics rarely ever make chemical just leave styler hero for no reason tyler hero who is twenty years old but his actually Mike Miller like in his prime, you cannot leave that dude open I don't care what the situation is. He's deadly he knocks down the three. It's a two point game. I. Thought that that possession was everything right there when I was watching the game live. I was like that is the type of mistake that will really come back to haunt you i. just think there's mistakes like that can get cleaned up and then I mean you gotTa give credit always to the opposition and Jimmy Butler. Had to like the the corner three to go up one which incredible I. Mean. You can say that it's a wide open corner three I. Don't I think that the stakes there were a little bit more than a wide open corner three and then the finish and won. Over tatum, which if you watch the replay, it's just physically impossible I still have no idea how he put up on the basket tatum played great defense there. So gotta give credit where it's due and then obviously at the end of the game. Bam, who might be my fate Mike Mike, my two favorite non Celtics in the whole league. I think are Jimmy Butler and Bama Bio. So for Bam to make that play at my heart was melting inside my chest I. Really did not want to see that happen but if anyone's going to make a play like that I, both expect Bam to be the one who does it and I'm happy for him for making it happen it's An unbelievable play and I thought tatum was was going to catch him for sure because he came around that needs to so hard and what have I been telling you I just wanted him to go to the basket a little bit more late in games shaken up don't settle for those Kobe Jumpers don't always settle for this step bag three. We know he can hit that shot. He was shooting awesome..

"Commend you before we went on the air because before our last episode I, specifically pointed out to you that we should probably cover the nuggets they've been playing great their incredible story and you were just like we're not. We're not doing that screw Mike and I was like that. It's not really a very nice thing to say so I'm very I'm I'm proud of you for reading that email Djing your and letting us get into. Talking about a very good basketball team I need to acknowledge one other mistake that was actually from Jake. We got almost the exact same email verbatim from a guy named Brendan. So they're coming in from all over the Rocky Mountain time we appreciate it look in my defense we covered the bigger stories I know the nuggets fans are real touchy. There sounded a lot like Jamal Murray right now a getting enough love or not giving enough credit and I knew we were going to have this podcast today to shower them with praise if did pull it off and frankly completely ignore them if they lost to the clippers. Okay. Those are those are the rules we only have so much time, Michael? I also WanNa read just to kick off our nuggets discussion I. WanNa read a question from thaddeus. He says in a League where bigs routinely get played off the court Yokich playoff killer he was a monster last year and a pair of game seven series, and even better this year guest the clippers team that had an elite defense. He saves his best games for the end of series with a triple double in game seven, any manipulated the clippers all over the court it doesn't work without Murray he Murray played the two best perimeter defenders and saved A. Game for when it was necessary. So my question is. Is Yokich Verse Lebron the best matchup of master manipulator sense Dot Dot Dot? So Michael First of all tell me what you thought about Yokich is closing efforts everything. was supposed to be. We could say Yokich was definitely I mean easily the best player in the series especially late. Dominated everything control the control the action, what did you any any new takeaways from Yokich is closing efforts there in that series and then did the Yokich versus Lebron. Matchup. In terms of who controls the game gets you thinking back to any comparisons throughout NBA his. I mean comparing anyone to Yokich is like just a fool's errand I mean he's dislike seven foot three hundred however many pounds pillow who has is like six is back of his head side of his head he just like that over the head passing through after game seven was basically decided just like totally insane. And also one of the most disrespectful things that I've ever seen. Disrespectful but I love it. I mean, you gotta if it's there, take it. No, it's so funny because he's the only superstar who does it have an instagram but that pass he did.

"Yeah I mean they the clippers look I think a part of this is whenever a favorite because that's would the the clippers were like all season long really I think that there weren't there wasn't like anyone who is in our business who was like you know the clippers just like aren't that good this team that has the second best offense in the fifth best defense in the second best point differential like they're not. They're. They're so fradulent like no one was saying that so. I think that a lot of people in our industry. Ben. Hope this isn't too inside baseball, but I feel like a lot of people get really upset when they're wrong about predictions and including me that's why I'm. Here I picked the clippers hallway they let me down I made a classic mistake Michael I judge them at their best day not their baseline. I always say judge a team or player not I. Don't judge them on their best day or they're were state but by that baseline and I talked myself into their ceiling all year long because when co I did have it going when he was taken over fourth quarters at certain points in the regular season, they looked phenomenal. They did look unstoppable their perimeter defenses flying around and you're thinking these guys are going. To swallow up a player, like Jamal, Murray, he's got no chance but their baseline was much shakier because of some of the circumstances that we've described and if wasn't playing at an area plus their ceiling wasn't nearly as high. So absolutely part of my frustration is for me making a violating, what am I own commandments here in terms of how we evaluate players, I can own that and I. Think you're dead right that there's a lot of other people out there who are feeling let down by their own view, their own viewpoints on the clippers. Yeah. My thing about that is like, okay this is, may I picked the rockets three years in a row so like I am completely like I'm comfortable being wrong I am used to it by now and that's that's a cool thing. So you're the Damian Lillard of predictions where like you're just going out there and shooting it with no conscience you're not even worried about what might happen is that it Exactly like predictions or.

"Nuggets series he's tasked with like he's chasing around Jamal Murray for a good chunk of that series and doing a pretty good job, and if you look at like a lot of our criticism right now, we're not giving credit to the Denver Nuggets who by the way we'll just so happen to. Know but just but like. If you look at like the second spectrum has the the the quality statistic and ranking near the top in in these playoffs, and in particular in the second round joe-marie Nicola Yokich hitting shots that were basically like grated as impossible routinely consistently hitting these shots and they were tough floaters contested follow as from the mid range I mean some of the defense. That both Kawai and other players on the clippers had against Marine Yokich could not have been played better. They just hit amazing shots. That's what the playoffs is about So I don't know if like at the end of the day. Yes he coined Leonard Certainly deserves criticism for how he played in game seven he if you WanNa be a unquestionably the wearer. Of the crown in the NBA in in a an era right now or I feel like that that crown is up for grabs or the bottle I. still think it's go I but it's up for grabs. It's debatable. You have to come through in a in a situation like that as the favorite your team has been was up through up. Three Games to one But I just don't I think that they were more issues here with the clippers than just coalisland reportedly and a game seven for sure there are. But I think Kawhi skates on criticism a lot because he does such a good job of keeping his head down and never saying anything and I do think it's important to Kinda. Point. Yeah. We'll definitely compared to the rest of his team absolutely but I just think if you're going to be viewed as the best player in basketball, don't you need to be one of the six best players on the court and a game seven I mean come on like I'll take Gary Harris over co Leonard in game seven I mean don't even get me started on Murray and yeah. Okay. Would you rather have Jeremy Grant? Would you have Jeremy Grant Leonard and gave seven I mean. No No. No you're right like I in two thousand eleven I mean the argument I was positing that JJ Beret was a basketball player Lebron. James I mean that's that's totally where was at in my head. So I'm with, you know I'm not going to do a top one hundred I've got Jerry grant about. I'm just saying if you're trying to parse these things and and comparing to you know Janas, his performance honest was better against the heat even though he was not good against the heat than Kawhi Leonard was late against the nuggets and I hear your point, he had a pretty good playoff run. But I also think there was It was kind of fact, checking Leonard's reputation. He built this myth last Last year that he was just like completely flawless in clutch situations he it's the Ford balance of shoddy has a couple of other big shots late in game all of a sudden he's Mr Cluj never screws up and I've been over at time and time again but the switch on dodgers's game winner that lack of a double team on Booker's game winner you know thinking twice in passing out against the Lakers in the first game of the bubble, there was a lot of moments..

"Of the players all mentioned that the nuggets just knew they wanted to go with the basketball late they were more comfortable even though their core is younger, they are more shared experience in those kinds of big moments in part because all they do is play big games because they get down three one and then have to fight with their backs against. The, Wall for half the series, every single round, and somehow they come out on top. So they were just more prepared more focused more efficient, olive it late in those games and the clippers just sort of dazed and confused I do want to put a lot of this on Kawhi, Leonard though Michael and I know you always defend him. So I'm hoping we can get into a screaming match about it because. You know his way has proven to work right. But I also think that you have to look at his two titles and finals MVP's and say you know the Spurs way worked the raptors away work not necessarily quite Leonard's way worked because the clippers built everything around Kawhi Leonard they cater to him they let them take an hour and a half after. Every game before he's talking to the media getting all this treatment, they did the load management thing you know they they go out of their way to support his charity efforts by a million backpacks for kids in the city of La. They put them on the front of every billboard they hype them up as as a face and all that all the things that teams do. And in the most important moments that he had been load managed for that, he had been kind of prepared for in the tough moments where you know guys who are not certified, you know like Lebron, James Type players on the Denver Nuggets are pushing them really hard. He just didn't push back. He could get to the basket in game seven. He wasn't doing a lot of stuff around the paint he had zero free throw attempts in forty four minutes in a game seven with the season on the line he's not rallying the troops..

"Questions. All right. I've got one do you what is it? Okay, sir. I just lost it it flew past. Oh, no, that's okay. Let's let's go with with this one. Let's go with this was a talking point on the broadcast a cash from YouTube says is coach Vogel shoving his worth. Okay a cash from YouTube you get the last license plate frame of the night again, shoot me a DM to my Twitter handle and give me your address and I will make sure we took one out to you so is coach Vogel proving his worth and Jeff Van Gundy on the broadcast tonight mentioned that one of the challenges of being the coach LeBron James is that just like being a teammate for LeBron James. There's a decent chance that you're not going to get any credit. And if you lose you're going to take the blame and that's that could be difficult for a coach for other players to deal with birth.

Are we to point now where we should be looking at coach Vogel a little bit differently than we were say six seven months ago when the season was really kind of still just getting going. What would you look at what we did defensively to the Houston Rockets and how well it worked how well it worked trapping art and how well it were trapping Gordon. I would say yes, and I'd like to Vogel all year really. So I mean my my opinion really hasn't changed on him. I just find it remarkable that he was are I think are maybe a second or third choice and it's just took so well and the team is really responded to my feel like they've bought into him and like there hasn't been I think it was maybe they're maybe be one or two games this whole season where we were kind of frustrated with Volvo. I think Vogel got a Master Lock actually of the night this series but I mean he bounced back strong. It's like maybe he was watching the show and you know, he didn't want to get master lunch or something because I you know, he's just unlike D'antoni, you know what I mean? He he adjusts, you know, he makes adjustments. He you know, and he just really I think he's done a great job. I mean D'antoni didn't even have the option to add..

"And so I don't want that possibility. So that's kind of in the back of my mind, but I would say that I know I shouldn't even put that evil out in the world. So the there's a there's a game 6 coming up quadruple overtime would be ideal Nuggets win back to game seven again. I want to see quadruple overtime. So by the time whichever team gets through is playing the Lakers two days later after game seven. I want them to be beaten bloodied and exhausted. I want that to be the scenario. So that's that's what I'm looking for in these next two games between the demo. It's not since you Trevor. I've been thinking that the whole time I've been telling anybody who listened like I want that series to go seven games game seven people overtime Thriller, whereas, you know, just I want the Clippers to have to work as hard as possible before going into this match up against us, which makes this Victory even sweeter wage. Because now the Lakers get to just pick up their feet relax and you know, hopefully the Clippers lose tomorrow. Yeah. Absolutely. I mean and you know what that's like we could say that any day but like we're really hoping they would lose tomorrow. I think collectively myself you everybody here off Lakers nation in the chat everything. I think it's a Clippers did face the Celtics in finals that we might have to just boycott the NBA Finals. Unfortunately, we might the basketball season would be over for us. I think we should all we should all just not watch the finals. I think in fact happy, it would be the least watched NBA finals in quite a while. I would be fairly confident in that if it was Clippers Celtics found it would really make 20 20 20 20 is already been pretty rough. Yeah. Could you imagine if we had to face that finals like it would that really just be the exclamation point on twenty-twenty at least for us all off. You know die-hard purple and gold fans. It's so gross think about that. All right here let's let's spin around. Let's go positive here. Robert Gonzales says, hey Trevor, do you watch to see the Lakers beat the Clippers and then the Celtics if it happens, of course, yes like that that that's the flip side to this. Imagine if the Lakers beat the Clippers and then claim Championship number 17 by beating the Celtics. Well, that's why I'm sharing for the salt extra. That's the only reason why I know you've been giving cheering for this you don't cheer for that Celtics go. Well not sure about touring but when I see them Advanced it gives me the hopes and dreams of a Lakers Celtics just for the match up, you know, just for the matchup itself not because I want the Celtics to be successful or anything right one-hundred-per-cent John side from YouTube said put Trev in the master lock for mentioning the Clippers Celtics finals. That's that's fair. That's fair wage. That is fair. Okay, let's get into a few more of these and then we're going to and then we're going to move on to the Master Lock of the night.

"And and I've Loved what Dion Waiters has provided Jordan Talen Horton Tucker has only made this decision more difficult for Frank Vogel. And that is a amazing and wonderful thing to see from a guy who is nineteen years old. He still has two more months of break nineteen that that is absolutely incredible that he is producing in the playoffs right now, you know, I started in WWE right around I got signed at 18,000 much started at nineteen but like for me, even when I watched this kid out here on this, you know in this arena in the playoffs and performed the way is it's just it's unbelievable man like to be nineteen years old and be in games of this relevance, right and to do a great job like he has been and I just I think you covered this which I thought was quite odd. The way the team is kind of, you know, got his back and told him bed cover up for him if he makes any mistakes and you know, just cuz it's a lot of pressure on a kid that age and you know, like it's going to be helpful for him to hear those type of things. It's going to help his performance and help them realize that like, yeah, he you know, you might make make mistakes but it's okay. We got your back type of thing now again, I just I don't think it makes me a little nervous with the Clippers. It's a lot of responsibility as for 19 year old but like it's you said he hasn't been anything to unlearn these minutes and I thought you were asking me between JR Smith and tht I'm going to say tht I think yeah. No, I agree. I would go tht over JR Smith. I don't know that would go tht over over a healthy. Dion wage know is Dion Waiters healthy that's going to be a big big factor in this for the Lakers see Del from YouTube to Trevor. Do you think we should use tht more for defensive purposes. Cuz I think you would not be pushed back more complain compared to like a c p or D on again. I go back to him being nineteen. I don't know that I like you're not putting Talen Horton Tucker on say Paul George and say here go shut him down..

"And right now the Dodgers are perhaps going to beat the Houston Astros that looks like it's a really close one top of the page right now and the Astros. Do you have a runner in scoring position? But the Dodgers are up 5 to 4. So we'll see if the Dodgers can hang in there but it would be great to see two wins over Houston on the same night by to La team. So let's go home. How about that? Let's get this thing done, especially after you know, the Astros and the cheating scandal and all that. Let's get the Lakers did have twenty turnovers on the night. Can you so the Rockets only had 12 turnovers wage. That was the worst part of the Lakers night was the turnovers. They give up 16 points off 20 turnovers. Can you imagine what this game would have been like if the Lakers had given up on more normal number of turnovers this this game would have been over even like they would have probably won by forty. I mean, we're up pretty much by Thirty and when you factor in the terminals you're talking about. Yeah like that. It's almost shocking because if you have they took care of them. A little more. I mean it could have been a 40-point lead that just goes to show you how in control we were of this game really, you know what I mean? Like it just it was a stress-free night for us all around it, you know just walk more thing on that on that balanced approach we had tonight. I love you. In fact that everybody got involved because that's much more heart. You know what I mean? Like it's easy to focus in easier to focus in when you're just focusing on cruise or somebody else. That's hot but man when everybody's doing their thing goodness gracious. Yeah. It's definitely a lot more difficult to defend on the night the Lakers shoot 53% from the field The Rock to 37% the Lakers shoot 51% from Deep the rocket shoot 27% How about that about that? I was yeah, like we beat them at their own game, you know, and the Houston got more points at the at rim side. They got to the basket much more but you know, a lot of that actually might have been transitioned now that you mention it from those turnovers to take a job. Yeah, if you're looking at this the fast break points Houston had 36 the Lakers at thirty-four. So Houston was getting some buckets in transition in the paint there. And so that adds up pretty quick. But yeah, I mean to shoot that way against jackets team, I think was pretty clear the Rockets were ready to go home the rebounding battle 5231 in favor of the Lakers. Let's go. All right.

"Danny Green is a plus 35 on the night how ridiculous is that plus 35 and it's Danny Green. Everyone's favorite 29 Points for LeBron James along board 7 assists two steals one block on nine of 18 shooting Danny Green 14 points 446 from Deep. We knew he had it in him. In fact every shot. He took was a 3-pointer Ford birds that we had Anthony Davis came in with just 13 points didn't have to do as much tonight 11:00 boards for assist for of nine shooting Markieff Morris boy. What a stand out tonight 16 points three boards name is Chris you talked about toughness. I think Markieff Morris gives you some of that six or seven shooting forward for from deep and then the boy who lived Kyle kuzma the sole survivor 549 Shooting three of six from Deep for boards one block 17 points and let's not forget playoff Rondo had a bit more of a quiet night three points five boards five assists looking over in Rocketts. Oh, wow. That's all kinds of ugly. Their PJ Tucker was a -38 - 38 LG Tucker hurting James Harden did go for thirty six thousand five. The only other rocket starter in double-figures was Russell Westbrook and he did it just barely with ten points. Every other rocket starter was in single digits while as well. Every Lakers star year was in double figures plus the Lakers six man with the most minutes on night Kyle kuzma also in double figures that is balanced balanced scoring Chris anything jump out to you from those stats. I just said you with world. Just what you just mentioned. Cuz when I'm looking at all these numbers what stands out to me and even from watching the game is that the the cool thing about tonight is wage. One particular guy stood out like everybody contributed to everybody like you can't I don't think there's anybody on the team that you could really dog tonight, you know ku's came through green came through Thursday, they all came through and and some fashion and you know, the scoring reflects that but like, you know, even Rondo. Yeah, he had a more quiet night, but he was he contributed, you know, I don't know what his plus-minus is. I didn't have that. In fact, you know it just everybody kind of did their thing tonight. Nobody really stood out besides, you know, of course LeBron and AD always stand out and they be of course was gobbling up rebounds. But you know, it was just like everybody did the thing and it was awesome tonight, you know, we didn't even need a third man. Everybody was third man the Chris, you know, you were with this on the last show. This is a very similar feel in terms of the scoring balance to last game where the Lakers they didn't have and it wasn't like hey LeBron went there for 35 Anthony Davis went for $33. And then the next best was, you know, kcpt put-up job. Or something like that..

"Cuz there's a lot of Pride here, you know being in its cage match up and you know, got basically the two best players in the game scoring up and Kauai and LeBron James and I say that cuz Kevin Durant's hurt obviously, so there's just so many interesting things about this and then even when you look at Paul George and AD like these are two guys have been so criticized for kind of their postseason performance and you know, can they step up in the big moments? So, you know, there's just a lot of that's going to be going on in this series, but you know again, I just like the way we're looking right now. It's giving me a lot of confidence that you know, no matter how the Clippers broke or how up, they are for the matchup that we can offer them. Yeah. I think that's that's a good call going with toughness. I I do have confidence in the way. The Lakers are playing right now. I think for me it's the other guys on the Clippers. That's that's my biggest challenge. It's I know kawaii's yep. Is points and by the way guys if you haven't watched the Clippers lately watch How often Kauai is flopping if you guys thought you were frustrated with James Harden wait until you start dealing with Kawhi Leonard. These guys were doing the head flavor. It's like to rid of James Harden in a row, right? It's the same sort of style. Paul. George is doing the same thing. But anyway, it's it's the other guys though. It's can you stop Lou Williams from having a game where he goes from 4:20 or keep Montrezl Harrell off the offensive glass visas Jubitz has been playing very well. Which hurts right here. It's those other guys keeping them from getting going. I think that's going to be part of the challenge. All right, let's get into Lakers stats and first segment of the night. Here we go, and we do still have more license plate frames to give out. So stick with us. bath Lakers stats.

"It was the edge of my seat living and dining with every shot which you know, how long I've done watching the Lakers playoffs game 7 2 2010 that was probably one of the most stressful experiences in my life, but it ended up great after game three. That was it. It didn't feel I am stressed anymore this game. It felt like the Lakers were in complete control. This reminded me. It's not the exact duplicate, but it reminded me of game five against the Blazers. Well where it felt like, okay whenever the Lakers Walsh To this game's over. Yeah, and I will get into the specifics of all of it. But I mean to me what's so great about this is how good do they look and it's just the most opportune time because now we're looking at the matchup like this next matchup is basically I know it's not technically the finals but this is the matchup. And again, that's assuming Clippers make it down past the Nuggets which you know granted they probably will but hey, you know, can always hope I guess but they're they look primed and ready man, you know, I mean the Lakers look as good as they've looked awful defensively or offensively just the Synergy of the team. It's just like this is the time and I couldn't be more static about us looking like this at this point now going into the Western Conference Finals one hundred percent. Yeah, they they are peaking at this point. And so you gotta love that. I will say this. I think this is a great indicator of how just perfect wage. Right. This was I'm getting positive comments and the chat that are popping up about Danny Green. David grade is getting low in our chat right now. And I think that is a that's a great sign what we gotta give them some I think he went to hit like for 3 tonight. He might have actually been 4444 actually. I don't know pull up the numbers but now like I was that was funny. It's one of the notes I took tonight. I was happy to see how my oh cool Danny Green's having a good night tonight. So he's not going to get butchered on Lakers nation. And I mean and like this is the thing with the angry man. Like, you know, he comes he does come through and some big moments and he came back to big time and like again, I think he was for four four, but I might be wrong maybe missed one of them from the arc. Well tell you what what Chris I am super excited for tonight. Just because of the Lakers won but also because I'm not running the back if you watch last show you knew that we gave out three Lakers license plate frames. They say Lakers nation and they say and they say Mamba Forever on them. Let me see if I still have a job. Loaded on here. Nope. I don't have the image to load it on there, but they are very awesome license plate frames and it's a we're going to do that again tonight. And so before we get into our first segment, I'm going off the first question here. All you got to do is ask a question. And if we pick your question then all you need to do is go to my Twitter handle right here. Shoot me a DM. I'm at Trevor underscore Lane. Give me your birth name.

They kept poor get onto the fourth quarter lead by sets older brother. Hurry weaves into the front court circles back to the right wing against his brother clear. It out looney comes out high to set the screen goes the other way in for the tunnel ram lay today Steph Tori with thirty four three Golden State up a dozen their largest lead of the game. Steph curry would finish with the game. I thirty six the warriors rally again to beat the blazers this time a one ten ninety nine final. Golden State of three nothing series lead now for a post game extra and Amine, PJ Carlesimo called the game on ESPN radio one to ninety nine Golden State over Portland in comeback fashion once again in game three they come back from eighteen down in the second quarter. They were down thirteen at half time. And just like in game two they come all the way back in other warriors have a commanding three OSA. His lead in the conference final. I mean, there's so many players playing well for this team. I really believe at Golden State doesn't get credit for how good a defensive team. They are what they didn't third quarter. They just refused to let Damian Lillard C, J McCollum get a good look at the basket. They double team. They trapped him. They harassed him. And then when they turn them over came up with the defensive rebound, Draymond green was leading the fast break as he did all night and just ran right back down to blazers throats seventeen eighteen point lead doesn't matter consecutive games. When you defend the way they defended in the second half. And when you share the ball the way they do and get the contributions. They got from their bench to good. Let's talk about two things. Let's start with dream on green. And then let's talk about that bench. Draymond green had a triple double with two minutes to go in the third quarter. That's what Golden State ended up taking its first lead of this game after trailing by eighteen dream on green is playing his best basketball of the season right now. And he continues to do it in the biggest game. Averaging double double in points, and rebounds becomes close in cysts every night tonight he got twelve assists on top of that, but four steals A-block shot, and he sets the tone for this team when they were struggling in the first half to stay in the game him, pushing the ball created all the fast break opportunities in the second half he got a lot of help at one point. It was twenty two eight bench points in favor of Portland wrote Golden State spent just in the second half just jumped all over them and it wasn't just with the offense combined looney was excellent McKay defensively Shaun Livingston as always Jordan bell Quinn. Cook Jonas Gerardo. I mean, Steve Kerr's keeps throwing fresh bodies at them and one after the other. They all contribute, there just weren't enough players even come close to matching that for the Portland trailblazers and for a fourth consecutive playoff game. Steph curry has thirty plus points head that huge performance in the second half against Houston in game six, and he's been rock solid. And beyond in this series.

Kerr calls Currys NBA royalty ahead of West finals

"Finals? We will see Kevin Durant to start the series. We will see Steph curry and the warriors facing off against Steph curry and the blazers Steve Kerr calling the curry family. NBA royalty quote, what a great story says their parents Dell and Sonya. Must be having the time of their lives. Although he says they'll certainly be conflicted over the next couple of weeks as for the series, and what we can expect ESPN analyst Legler, Golden State has more guys that can jump out and guard switch and guard little McCollum, then Portland has to guard their key. And that's what it comes down through for me. So I give the edge to Golden State. But absolutely think that Portland's going to be in this series. They're going to be in these games. How long it lasts? I don't know. And if Portland steal one out of two they're so good at home. Maybe this becomes a different story if they can get one of those first two games. There's no question in my mind, they can play with them for their super confident right now that they can battle in the way they're backwards. Play many believed the rockets were the big test for the warriors in this postseason. But it's the blazers out standing in the way of Golden State, the guys PTI, I look at Portland as legitimate team. Kevin is not gonna play game on. I don't wanna play games. I'll be does the series. Here's if even strength. This is what I would say to you that what Portland is very good at Golden State is great at and that's the difference. But if Kevin Durant does not not one game. Now play the whole deal Portland can win are different Charles Barkley on this show and his show and other shows. Charleston goes. I said what? Now. I'm sorry. Did you hear me Portas coming out of the west? State how compelling series, and we're gonna talk about Golden State gonna pick Golden State because of what I just saw him to Portland Tony is an irresistible team. They're so likeable. I know you're going to underestimate them because. Yeah. Spent the whole spring telling people you've never seen them. Interesting Denver and get your I ninety five dollar and to underestimate them. I'm going status cheddar, that's respect. Now. What spec them specked on your name? And whether or not you respect them. There are those roar projecting forward to a warriors bucks match, the NBA finals or max Kellerman on first takes us, perhaps we should pump the breaks out K D still favorites. I think they're gonna win the series, but without K D. It's it's tipped much more into a balanced series. This series is really this is the head like just as the east. It's now it's a wide versus the freak. Who's the best player in the world? This is which team has the best back court. Right. The champion Houston. We saw that. Sorry with chips on the line. That's not the best backward. They got out plead by the back court the reigning champs. Golden State Warriors. Splash brothers. Stephan. Clay over we got a new number one contender Stephen and the new number one contender is the Portland Trail Blazers Damian Lillard and CJ McComb. That's the number one contender to the throne. That is not so lopsided. You said Damian Lillard deserves to be all NBA overstep this year. Just saw this performance. CJ put on that's a worthy adversary for Klay Thompson bad man that let's look where the where the vulnerable without K do their best defender nowadays, by the way. What are they? You have a big who can play while. They don't have. Turkish hold on timeout. A second house Kanter on offense. And he wants it house Zach Collins, and he wants it wherever you look on Portland. Not only do you have a guy who can play. But you have a guy who plays with heart. We see the difference. These guys play with heart. They match up decently in many respects with Golden State. They can kind of do if not neutralize Golden State does do things some of the same things that Golden State does. One of the Western Conference finals here on ESPN radio.
