Look at the scoring efficiency of Russ/Beal compared to Durant/Kyrie and it’s pretty bizarre that Washington won.

Finally the Wizards defensive strategy of "leave good shooters wide open" worked!

This is also his general defensive philosophy. He’s just consistent.

No he would've got the third rebound and almost missed an easy putback layup for the win

Despite Russ' best efforts, Washington still won
Why does Russell keep shooting 3s in crunch time when he knows he will miss
[–]legendariusss 37 指標 1小時前
Westbrook in that 4th was like quintessential Russ. Dude was big volume like 15 points and 3 assists, but just about threw the game with a brain dead dumb ass play
[–]papapapapapokerface 65 指標 1小時前
Westbrook is just hilarious, i admire his confidence so much
7-25, Beal just hit a layup and he take a deep three and doesn't give a fuck about running back

Passed well but still pretty poor shot selection.
[–]3WritesToLeft 6 指標 2小時前
Beal had an off shooting night, but late when he knew his shot wasn't falling he drove to the rim for a finish, and then fed Bryant the ball deep after drawing in the defense. Russ just continued to chuck or stand around at the top of the key when he doesn't have the ball in his hands.

Got a huge steal and assist down the stretch too. And was a beast early in the 4th.

Westbrook will make a horrific basketball play and nearly cost his team a big win, and OKC fans will still be stanning him in the comments. I respect the dedication.

When Beal went to the bench at the end of the third and going into the 4th, Russ kept them in the game

No lmao of course no one watched the game. Everyone knows the real fun in the NBA isn’t watching the sport it’s running to the game thread and opening the box score in the next tab and firing off your opinion.

I'm far from being a Westbrook stan, but I'm so fucking tired of this Westbrook slander.
He was huge for the wizards in the 4th quarter.
I do agree that he needs to fix his shot selection, but he definitely didn't cost the wizards the game.

This is KD's second attempt at a game-winning shot from a pretty doable range, and he's missed both. Glad Kyrie is playing for the first time in his career with someone he's trusted to take shots in the clutch. Phew.

Meanwhile a close game for 3 quarters just got secured by LeBron scoring 10 in the first 5-6 mins of the 4th to create a comfortable lead to win it.

9/16 FGs 3/6 from 3 and 1/3 from the line. Scored 15 in the last 14 minutes of the game.
Don't need to say who put up those numbers but you already know it's LeBron

Fuck yes, god damn we got lucky. What an entertaining game, if the Nets let Allen finish the game at center instead of Jeff Green it might have been a different ending.

even when both missed, the offense isn't the problem. Nets are not a good team on defense so far. Washington has a good offense, but Nets should still beat them and slow them down. Congrats to Wizards though. Quality win.

[–]young_whipsnap 11 指標 1小時前
It's not even defense really. It's rebounding. They never secure the possession which is just as crucial as the initial defense. The wiz only shot 41% but had 23 more shots than the nets which is a shit ton of more shots
[–]LMAOOOOOOOOOOOO101 182 指標 1小時前*
Levert is not ready to run that bench on his own either. Dinwiddie is a huge loss and Nash needs to adjust by eliminating any lineup where both KD and Kyrie are off the floor. They’re contenders but people crowning them as coming out of the east already are premature. I don’t see how this team as constructed slows down Giannis like how Toronto and Miami did. They don’t have the personnel for that. Would be a fascinating series to watch
[–]Heat Shiny_metal_ass 19 指標 44 分鐘前
I've never thought about it but I would love to see that series.
[–]Raptors SleptInAgain 10 指標 39 分鐘前
What bench, I'm still waiting for anyone besides Levert or Allen to have a good game, and since Deandre is really really terrible, Allen gets cancelled out
[–]Celtics carefullywasnt 127 指標 1小時前
Literally after 2 games people were calling the Nets the deepest team in the league. They did lose Dinwiddie though

CP3 and even Pat Bev. Quick, small guys with active hands make him really uncomfortable on the dribble and if the refs let them play into his jersey then it starts fucking with his shot just cause he’s not in rhythm or comfortable.
