yeah, but there's a lot of growth left, especially with OG who is just starting to blossom. In 3 years, these guys will be awesome together, Giannis or not. 2021 Giannis/OG/Siakam is just unfair to the league.


Yeah, seriously. Lebron and AD won't be as potent anymore, and George will be too old by that point to be a super B to Kawhi. Only philly would pose a threat (other than other super teams forming in the meantime).

Nice close out by siakam. He’s scary and nearly unstoppable against anyone not named giannis. Can’t wait to see kawhi guard siakam 


it will be pretty much the same result as when Giannis guarding him. Even though kawhi is a better defender, Giannis is probably better at defending pascal with his length. Still, don't expect siakam to score 30 or more against the clippers, not this season at least 🙂

the schedule makers did us no favours either, for us it will be the 3rd game in 4 nights, on a b2b, for LA it will be a 4 days rest time before the game. If there ever was a schedule loss, that's probably it.

I saw only the last six minutes of the game. OG splashing threes and Siakam dominating. Then OG made that pass to Boucher and I was done. Two stars. And then I see the boxscore and BOY OH BOY! We should call boxscore the BOYOHBOYSCORE!

Seems like Norm had a good game as well. NICE!

Too bad for Lowry and Ibaka, hopefully they'll be alright soon and it is nothing major.

Pelicans continue to suck but what else is new. All that summer hype for nothing. Didn't last a week. At least they have Zion.

31 fast break points in the first half! Woooosh! And another great job with transition d. That has been a big chunk of the pie of success so far. And it has tended to bring one supercharged quarter that gives them a nice cushion. A pretty damn fun style of basketball.

Nurse is going to be lying awake thinking about how he could have had a successful challenge. Not sure how the refs missed such an obvious goaltending call. But then i’m not sure what planet they were on that whole second half. I thought the whistle was really good in the first half, even though it looked like the Raptors could have had a lot more calls. They let them play and it worked out evenly enough.

Nurse saying that Ibaka has a severely sprained ankle. 🤦‍♂️

ouch, two starters down for a while looks like - right during the toughest stretch of the season. Hopefully lowry is a short time injury, we can probably survive ibaka ...

oh well, either way, we'll get more of siakam and og and some development time for the young guys, which may pay off later on in the season when the schedule turns lighter.

Lowry's played a lot of ball already, he can use the break
