Here are the top 4 clutches players.👇🏽

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.

HIS PERFORMANCE 👇🏽👇🏽

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!
