HIS PERFORMANCE ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿฝ

BY DESIGN:

DOMANTAS SABONIS WAS EXCLUSIVE USED ON THE LEFT SIDE OF THE FLOOR. HE WASN’T USED AS A SCORER BUT AS A DECOY FOR HIS TEAMMATES TO GET THEIR ONE ON ONE MATCHUPS. SABONIS WAS ALSO EFFICIENT IN LAST NIGHT’S GAME BESIDES THE 5 TURNOVERS.

STYLE OF PLAY:

THE INDIANA PACERS RAN A LOT OF DESIGN PICK AND ROLL HAND OFF’S THROUGH HIM. FORTUNATELY ENOUGH THIS STYLE OF PLAY WORKED AS HIS TEAMMATES WERE ABLE TO KNOCK DOWN THEIR SHOTS! THE DENVER NUGGETS TRIED TO SWITCH UP THEIR DEFENSE MANY TIMES BY DOUBLING AND TRAPPING. BUT SABONIS WOULD HIT HIS TEAMMATES WITH A SMOOTH BOUNCE /TOUCH PASS. (SIMILAR TO HIS DAD) OR HE WOULD CRASH THE BOARDS ON A MISS SHOT. HE WAS BUSY ON THE OFFENSE GLASS PULLING DOWN 7 OFFENSE REBOUNDS!

OVERALL THE INDIANA PACERS HAD A GREAT OFFENSE GAME-PLAN. WORKING THEIR MISMATCHES.

GAME SCORE:

INDIANA PACERS -115

(28-15)

DENVER NUGGETS – 107

(29-13)

FUN FACT:

DOMANTAS SABONIS IS THIRD OVERALL IN THE LEAGUE WITH DOUBLE DOUBLES. HE CURRENTLY HAS 32!

IS DOMANTAS SABONIS AN ALL-STAR?

YES. I HOPE HE MAKES IT!

SGA JOINS THIS INCREDIBLE LIST OF PLAYERS TO PULL THIS OFF:

HE HAS ADDED A LOT OF BALL FAKES LIKE HIS TEAMMATE (CHRIS PAUL) TO HIS GAME. HIS SHOOTING HAS DRASTICALLY IMPROVE ALONG WITH HIS DECISION MAKING WITH THE BALL. SGA IS NOW IN HIS 2ND YEAR. ONLY TIME WILL TELL HOW GREAT HE WANTS TO BE.

FOR JAMES HARDEN THIS WAS HIS FIRST TRIPLE DOUBLE OF THIS SEASON. MAYBE THE BRAIDS ARE BRINGING HIM DIFFERENT ENERGY. BUT HE IS STARTING OFF THE NEW YEAR WHERE HE LEFT OFF LAST YEAR. DROPPING 40POINTS ON OPPONENTS LIKE IT IS NOTHING….

HE IS THE MOST COMPLETE OFFENSE PLAYER IN TODAYS GAME.

GIANNIS SNATCHED THE CROWN (12-19-19)

THE TORCHED WAS NOT PASSED LAST NIGHT. IT WAS SNATCHED!

IN MY OPINION GIANNIS ANTETOKOUNMPO TOOK THE TORCH FROM LEBRON JAMES ESPECIALLY DOWN THE STRETCH OF THE 4TH QUARTER. THIS WAS AN IMPORTANT GAME FOR HIS CAREER.

TO ME GIANNIS SHOWED A LOT OF GROWTH FROM LAST YEARS PREVIOUS MATCH UP. AND THE CRAZY THING GIANNIS WON MVP! BUT I BELIEVE HE GOT EVEN BETTER. HIS GROWING PAINS OF LOSING LAST YEAR TO KAWHI IN THE PLAYOFFS DEFINITELY SPARKED SOMETHING DEEP WITHIN. THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HIM THEN AND NOW IS WIDELY DRASTIC. NOW HE HAS REFLEXED ON ALL OF THAT PAIN. EACH AND EVERY GAME NO MATTER WHO THE OPPONENT IS WILL BE GETTING HIS VERY BEST!

BREWING WITH CONFIDENCE:

GAME SCORE:

LOS ANGELES LAKERS – 104 (24-5)

MILWAUKEE BUCKS – 111 (25-4)

AT THIS POINT HE IS RUNNING AWAY WITH WINNING BACK TO BACK MVP’S. WHAT DO YOU THINK?

HE OUTPLAYED BOTH LEBRON JAMES AND ANTHONY DAVIS. SOMETIMES STATS CAN BE MISLEADING IF YOU DON’T WATCH HOW THE PLAYERS ARE PLAYING.

THE FUNNY THING IS I STILL THINK THE MILWAUKEE BUCKS ARE MISSING A KEY PLAYER TO HELP GIANNIS WIN HIS FIRST NBA CHAMPIONSHIP THIS YEAR.

I HOPE THEY CAN MAKE A MOVE BEFORE THE TRADE DEADLINE!

PORZINGIS VS ANTETOKOUNMPO (12-16-19) – WINNING STEAK SNAPPED!

THE DALLAS MAVERICKS CAME TO COMPETE AND THEY HAD THEMSELVES A GREAT NIGHT. THEY REALLY WANTED TO GET THIS VICTORY AND END THE BUCKS WINNING STEAK. DALLAS SHOWED THEIR HUNGER IN THE FIRST QUARTER BY SCORING 36POINTS ON THE BUCKS!

NO STAR/NO PROBLEM:

THEY DID NOT HAVE THEIR MVP CANDIDATE IN LUKA DONCIC. HE IS STILL RECOVERING FROM HIS ANKLE INJURY. I THINK HE WILL BE OUT FOR A FEW WEEKS.

KRISTAPTS PORZINGIS HAD HIS BEST GAME AS A DALLAS MAVERICKS.

THE MAVERICKS HANDED THE MILWAUKEE BUCKS THEIR FIRST LOSS SINCE NOVEMBER 8 WHICH WAS AGAINST THE UTAH JAZZ.

ALIVE IN THE 4TH:

KRISTAPTS PORZINGIS SEALED THE GAME IN THE 4TH BY KNOCKING DOWN 2 DEEP 3’S IN GIANNIS FACE! THOSE BACK TO BACK 3’S CHANGED THE COMPLEXITY OF THE GAME.

ALMOST ONLY COUNTS WITH HORSESHOES:

GIANNIS ANTETOKOUNMPO MADE A FURIOUS COMEBACK LATE. BUT IT WAS NOT ENOUGH! HE SCORED IN BUNCHES AND YOU CAN FEEL HIS DETERMINATION TO LEAD HIS TEAM BACK AND TO CONTINUE THE WINNING STEAK.

GAME SCORE:

120- DALLAS MAVERICKS (18-8)
