Giannis finishes with 27 points and a career high 21 boards. One of these dudes is going to get the MVP hardware if they keep this up. Bucks win the game 116-109. Harden finishes with 42 points on 13-30 shooting with 10 boards, six assists and nine turnovers. He also survived this...Giannis is probably the only player that could get to the line more than Harden in a game.
Milwaukee’s plan against the left-handed Harden was to take away the left side of the court, even if it meant giving him a lane to the basket on the right. Whoever was responsible for guarding last season’s MVP would set up on his left side, with a big man stationed not too far from the basket whose eyes were focused on Harden in case he bolted to the rim. Everyone else stood between their man and Harden. It was bizarre, but it looked like pure art
I love Brogdan, he's the kind of guy that could fit in seamlessly with any NBA team. He's the perfect kind of guard to have when you have a wing that is going to be the primary creator; he doesn't need the ball in his hands to be effective, but he can create for others. He's at 15-4-3 on great shooting 52/42/98 and plays great defense, with the size and length to guard wing players. I don't know if there is another player that would be a more seamless fit on all 30 teams with the possible exception of Klay.Malcolm "Humble Moses" Brogdon went 6-6 from the stripe in the Rockets game and is now 77-78 (.987) on the season.
Westbrook made the right call there. I never understand the Russ slander. He is inefficient and makes some crazy decisions. But the guy is typically the most electric player in any game in which he plays.Westbrook just passed up a wide open three to get it to the hot shooter (Ferguson) who ties the game with a three for his 20th assist. White follows with a three of his own. Just a great, well played game.
He'd get a lot less slander if he made the right call more often at the end of games, instead of calling his own pretty terrible number.Westbrook made the right call there.
