It's Been a while since I have seen a player make such significant leap in FT % from regular season to playoffs (admittedly on a much smaller sample size)

He is a gem, our Jaylen (esp with regards to speaking up on Social matters)

Good to see Timelord have an influence off the bench today. He has an influence/presence everytime he steps out on court. Could be the difference we’re looking for to take the next step!

It looked like a really even contribution from the team and to get that number of points from the bench is a bonus.

It's a shame Wanamaker is already 31.

His steady play would be awesome from a player that's in their mid 20's going forward off the bench.

I am sure Cobra has played better games for us, but I am not sure if he ever put in such a clutch performance in such an important game.

I am going to rewatch that final quarter quite a few times on Kayo. I am still a bit shook tbh (in a great way :D)

Our defense is phenomenal. The amount of times we didn’t even allow them to get a shot off down the stretch was remarkable.

Just feel as though we can win from any position atm. We are legit champion contenders this year imo.
Doing this without hayward too.

What a group we have, f*cking love this team.

2-0 Lets get another sweep!

Oh hard to say that was one of his best performances especially in the 4th when it matters.

Remarkable stat for such a historical/GOAT worldwide sporting team (not just US)

Tatum's scoring numbers would be higher if we didn't also have a number of other versatile wing players and contributors off the bench who add to the scoring (case in point Donovan Mitchell can easily drop a time of 50 or so every now and then, Cause HE has no other potent offensive teammate really)

I'm excited

This could be the best opportunity we get in a while to win a championship. The whole bubble situation, no KD & Kyrie in Brooklyn, Giannis could be on the move, no home court advantage, both LA teams can be had... It will be infinitely harder next season.

I'm more worried about the heat than the bucks tbh.
We simply can’t stop Giannis. Theis? No. Time Lord? Probably not. We’ve tried Semi with minimal success.

I think our many wings match up well defensively with the Heat but that’s just me. Either way we have a massive shot of getting to the Finals. Exciting.

Look at what Miami are doing to him clogging the paint making him pass and shoot less, then their shooters aren't shooting well.

I'm not. Our achilles heel all year have been dominant bigs. Crowder, Adebayo and Olynyk aren't in the same weight division as Lopez and Giannis.
This is where i think differently we have 5 guys they have to stop (when haywards healthy) they only have giannis.

I thought theis did a decent job on embiid.

Embiid was the only reason they got close in a couple of games. Giannis is better and has Lopez to support him in the paint.

And how is that any different to Miami having players to stop as well? Their second best isn't exactly Khris Middleton level

Because Miami have 3 or 4 players as well that can explode.
