My Overview:

Joel Embiid playing exclusively in the post exposed one of Atlanta’s major weaknesses! This is the second time this year were the opposing center had a career night against y’all. 👇🏽

NIKOLA JOKIC VS ATLANTA HAWKS (1-6-20)

The Philadelphia 76ers unleashed their beast. Atlanta started double teaming Joel Embiid. But that didn’t work. He would kick it out to shooters. Also players were able to slash to the rim because of clear driving lanes created by Joel Embiid. Or they would pass the ball back to Embiid for a repost. I believe that was the game plan going into last night’s game. A formula for success in my opinion! Now play like this against a good team.

For the Sixers going forward, will they continue with this formula of using Joel Embiid more in the post?

Injury:

Ben Simmons (Out indefinitely)

NBA (bballscholar) Terminology :

Repost– This is when a player in the post passes it out to a wing player. Then the post player can now establish a deeper post position. The wing player then passes it back to the post player as he has deeper post position with a 1 on 1 match up.

Did you know that Chris Paul has a great chance to make an all defensive team for the 10th time in his career?

How many more years will Chris Paul play?

He is currently 34 and will be 35 before this season is over. I believe before he retires he has to accomplish these milestones.

Play in the NBA finals or score over 20,000 points & dish out 10,000 assists.

Bballscholar Calculations:

20,000 points

18, 537 currently

= 1, 463 away

10, 000 assists

9,542 currently

= 458 away

Conclusion:

I would say he would play at least 2 or 3 more seasons. Unless his body breaks down completely.

Toronto Raptors – 15 Straight Wins!

The Toronto Raptors are one of the best defensive teams in the league: They rank 2nd in defense ratings.

Toronto Raptors Record:

40-14 (3rd best record in the league)

Toronto Raptors Last Lost:

San Antonio Spurs on

1-12-20

105 Spurs

104 Raptors

In their last 20 games the Toronto Raptors have gone 16-4.

During their 15 game winning streak they have been decimating opponents with smothering defense.

The defending champs are playing playoff basketball. I am very impressed with their focus. I believe Nick Nurse is an highly intelligent coach. He is solely driven on team’s success. He strives off of it!

I believe they will end up with the 2nd seed in the east.

How far can the Toronto Raptors go?

They have the experience and talent to make it back to at least the Eastern Conference Finals.

Let me know your opinion.

UTAH JAZZ – 10 GAME WINNING STREAK

UTAH JAZZ – 10 GAME WINNING STREAK

THE LAST TIME THE UTAH JAZZ LOST WAS ON DECEMBER 23 , 2019. THE JAZZ LOST AGAINST THE MIAMI HEAT IN A CLOSE NAIL-BITER. SINCE THAT DAY THE JAZZ MADE A TRADE WITH CLEVELAND FOR JORDAN CLARKSON. CLARKSON’S ROLE IS TO HELP IMPROVE THEIR DEPTH AND SCORING OFF THE BENCH.

WITH THIS STREAK:

ON A SCALE 1-10 HOW IMPRESSED ARE YOU WITH THIS WINNING STREAK?

I WOULD RATE THEIR STREAK AT A 6.

THEY ARE TAKING CARE OF BUSINESS AGAINST WEAKER OPPONENTS. IF THEY KEEP THIS STREAK ALIVE WHEN THEY PLAY AGAINST PLAYOFF TEAMS THEN I WILL CHANGE MY MIND. HOW LONG CAN THIS WINNING STREAK LAST?

THE UTAH JAZZ ARE CURRENTLY IN 3RD PLACE IN THE WEST WITH A RECORD OF 28-12.

ALSO THE UTAH JAZZ ARE TIED FOR THE THIRD BEST RECORD IN THE LEAGUE!

THIS CHART SHOWS THEIR WINNING STREAK AND THEIR OPPONENTS OVER THE LAST 10 GAMES.

HOW LONG CAN THE UTAH JAZZ KEEP THIS WINNING STREAK?

SHOULD DONOVAN MITCHELL BE IN THE MVP DISCUSSION IF THE UTAH JAZZ KEEP WINNING AT A HIGH CLIP?

HE’LL REMAIN IN THE TOP 10 OF MVP VOTING DEPENDING OF TEAM’S SUCCESS.

CAN THE JAZZ FINISH IN THE TOP 3 IN THE WEST?

I AM DOUBTFUL.
