    What are you even talking about? It was a turnaround, fadeaway jumper with Nurk challenging with a hand in his face. Fuckin ridiculous.

    It's a well paid Job, but a job non the less. He obviously doesn't feel any pressure to contend or finish strong this year?
    And even if he struggles next year and they fire him he's the type that would take it in stride, after all he's made some big bucks.

    Well he should. Anyone who has been paying attention would realize he hasn’t exactly been dealt a great hand of cards.

    good grief are you Nurk's Mom? Joel got exactly the clean look he wanted, but atta boy Jojo, you tried. OneSport3 still has your back even after missing all those Free Throws that would have put the game out of reach.

    Good grief! Even if that’s the “clean look” Embiid wanted, that was a difficult shot. The Second Spectrum data showed that Embiid’s shot only had a 32% make probability. You blaming Nurk for his defense is complete idiocy. Outside of actually blocking the shot, he couldn’t have played that any better. It was just an amazing shot by a potential MVP candidate.

    And even if he did make those free throws, that wouldn’t have put the game out of reach as you claim. Four points with 2 minutes remaining is hardly putting the game out of reach.

    Of course it was a difficult shot, but this is the NBA not rec league. Thats the sort of shot thats made throughout most games and the Sixers knew the matchup they wanted. You want to hand out more participation awards to the guy that choked the game away on one end and gave up 39 on the other? Great effort on D Jojo, you held him to only 6 points over his average

    With 24.5 seconds left in the game, the Blazers are ahead by 1 point. Jerami Grant is open on the right side and ready for a pass to him.

    This possession ended up being a turnover when Lillard dribbled down the right side of the lane and had his last-second pass to Nurkic blocked from behind by Melton, which then bounces off Nurkic's hands.

    Grant is a 40% 3-point shooter. Does Dame not "trust" him or what the hell is going on here?

    Also, when this sad possession ended, there were still 8 seconds left on the shot clock.

    Can someone explain this bullshit?

    Sad ending to the possession.

    It was a fun 1st half. Everyone involved, the ball moving around, active on defense. Best half in a long time.

    I’m not seeing a clean look by Embiid at the end, but it could’ve been defended a lot better. Nothing to argue over.

    Nonetheless, the TANK keeps rolling along…

    I've noticed that in just about every game thread you find some reason to criticize Dame. If you were to make a list of reasons why Portland lost, Dame's performance would be pretty low on the list
