Just all nba defensive player of the year


True but he can't guard the whole team... Isn't even guarding one of the "big 3"

The jazz starters playing really great imagine if Hayward stayed :eek:

Rest in piss Thunder (and Kiiing)

I like Westbrook but not when he plays the Dumbbrook role. Adams is also a winner but the rest of these idiots don't deserve to win. I guess Corey Brewer is cool too.

PG can spend his whole off season taking more d1ck pics.

He basically does guard the whole team especially when they try to get in the paint. Westbrook can't get to the rim as usually. Paul George dribbled in there and changed his mind. He allows them to guard the 3 point line agressively and for Rubio to play a Matador and go for steals all the time

Thunder just don't have good chemistry or ball movement. Gotta be bad coaching because it seems like everything is iso ball (especially down the stretch)

Melo is obviously in Father Time mode. Dude can't shoot for nothing right now.

Westbrook was out of control today and I think he was too focused on shutting down Rubio.

This team just won't work too many egos.
Nobody is really going to call out Melo and tell him to wake up. And he definitely has too much pride to come off the bench.
Jazz in 6.

Raptors
Healthy Celtics
76ers

Would eliminate them.....


You can make a argument for a healthy Wizards team, Pacers and Cavs as well....

I want to see Sixers vs Jazz finals but I doubt it...I can see the Sixers making the Finals(Round 2 a injured Celtics or Bucks will be easier than the physical Heat) but I can't see the Jazz beating Houston and Golden State

Donovan's college team played the complete opposite of OKC, with tons of movement. Donovan even said in January the team needs to play pass and move much more than they are.

Celtics are not healthy, and you can't rely on choke artists like Raptors to beat them either. The only team is Sixers, and even that's debatable.

Not much doubt the lack of ball movement is because of the roster they have.

Of course everyone is healthy in this scenario

And I think it's fair to say Pacers, Cavs and Wizards beating the Jazz isnt a crazy statement although I'd bet on the Jazz in these scenarios.

16 points 13 rebounds 6 assists 3 steals and 3 blocks and a Win w.o Embiid even on a lousy 7-22 shooting is not bad for a guy playing his 10th professional NBA game at the time... And he's gotten much better since.

Not even trying to shit talk but Gobert was -20 in that game and both Simmons and Rudy played 36 minutes that night.

7-22 from the field with 6 TO's. I wasn't impressed at all with him.

Could we pleases stop using +/-? Gobert had a great game as he usually does. He got little help from his teammates if you look at the box score.

Embiid in my opinion is the 2nd best defensive C after Gobert so it's not like Mitchell would have a cake walk to the rim either. What happens when Embiid gets Gobert into foul trouble and he sits? Sixers can win games w.o Embiid the same can't be said for Jazz w.o Gobert.

Number one Option Donovan Mitchell vs the Sixers

Game 1
8 points 3 rebounds 2 assists in 31 minutes
3-21 14% FG
2-11 18% 3P

Game 2
17 points 4 rebounds 5 assists 3 TO in 37 minutes
6-19 31.6% FG
1-7 14.3% 3P

Overall stats VS 76ers
12.5 PPG
4.5-20 FGA 22.5%
1.5-9 3PG 16.7%
66.7% FT
3.5 RPG
3 APG
2 TOPG
1 SPG
1 BPG

By far the worst stats Mitchell has against any team.

76ers 2-0 vs Jazz
Jazz game 1 shot 30.3% against sixers (w.o Embiid) and got out rebounded 56-45
Jazz game 2 (w.o Gobert) shot 35% against sixers and got out rebounded 55-34 in a 21 point loss...

Both teams got alot better since and I think Mitchell would struggle more than Simmons in a PHI-UTAH series. As the number one option I personally hope Mitchell would take 20-25 shots per game in that series I believe it would help us win. Simmons on the other hand will pick his spots on offense and will continue to contribute all over the court. He is currently .25 APG shy of avg a triple double in the playoffs and playing great defense on both perimeter and post. I think a struggling Mitchell would hurt his team more than a struggling Simmons since Mitchell is the go to guy leading scorer. Simmons can go out there and avg 16 PPG vs Jazz and win where Mitchell needs to get 27+ for jazz to have a shot.

Like I said it would be a great series and Mitchell is a star in the making but 76ers would ultimately win the series. The sixers match up very well vs Jazz, I can see Dario(who led the NBA in 3s for a 6'10 or taller player) and Ersan stretching the floor forcing Favors to the bench and forcing the Jazz to use a new starting 5. This would force Gobert and Favors to split time at center since no one else on the roster can guard Embiid. Rubio can't guard Simmons(I kinda wish Rubio plays that matador defense, Simmons will burn him every time). Mitchell will have his hands full on defense chasing JJ and Bellineli around. Covington is a perfect 3 and D guy and we can throw multiple body's (Covington, Simmons, Anderson, TLC) at Mitchell which was successful during the season.

This is my take on things I'm not trying to discredit anything the Jazz or Mitchell have done. Simmons in my opinion would avg a triple double or at least close to it in this series.

Gobert's pretty good about staying out of foul trouble.

Mitchell didn't even start the first game! November was his worst month by far.

OKC was 3-1 against the Jazz. Jazz were a different team in November especially without Gobert!

Mitchell averages 2o pts a game. He hasn't needed to score 27 for them to win many games

Can Dario and Illasova defend Favors at the other end. Maybe he forces them to the bench? The Jazz best line-up is with Crowder not Favors anyway. Favors would start regardless

Udoh is one of the best rim protectors in the league. Much better than Favors

They'll have a lot tougher time trying to stay in front of Mitchell than he will them. They can always put Ingles on Redick. He took him completely out of the Clippers series last year. You do realize match-ups go both ways right?

Westbrook is averaging close to a triple double this series. They are down 3-1!

Wait untill Gobert defends the process than we will see about foul trouble

Mitchell played 31 minutes off the bench first game let's not act like he didn't get playing time... Both Simmons and Mitchell have improved from November. So if you think Simmons will struggle vs Gobert due to you not being "impressed" with him in his 10th career game I have the right to bring up Mitchells games against Philly as well. What the excuse for the 2nd game he shit the bed as a starter where JJ lit him up for 20 on 9 shots and Simmons dropped 27 and 10.

PHI is a different beast than OKC they play team ball much like the jazz and don't rely on iso and hero ball like OKC. We are one of the top teams when it comes to moving the ball and getting assists

I guarantee you for the Jazz to keep up and score with PHI Mitchell would need to score in the high 20s. Sixers kept the jazz to 97 and 86 points in the two games. With the leading scorers being Hood 19 in game one and Mitchell 17 on 31% shooting in game 2

If you remember watching the sixer jazz games the first game the Saric matchup forced Favors to the bench with Saric hitting 5 threes..Favors only played 19 minutes due to the mismatch. 2nd game Favors played C shot 3-8 with 3 TOs and played 26min due to foul trouble guarding Embiid.

Sorry but Udoh can't guard Embiid I think we can both agree on that. Bigger and better big man have tried and failed.

Neither Reddick nor Bellineli would be guarding Mitchell... It will be any of Covington/Simmons/Anderson/TLC/McConnell

Again Philly is a different beast than OKC a much deeper team with different offensive options, they don't need to depend on a Simmons triple double to win like OKC does.

Jazz avg 33% from the field overall and got out rebounded by double digits both games to philly. Jazz avg 91ppg vs phi and got outscored by 30points combined in two loses.

Wait until Embiid is actually on the floor against Gobert. That's been a rare sight indeed!

The difference is that Simmons was already pegged as rookie of the year and nobody was even talking about Mitchell yet. Hood was still the so called go to guy! Mitchell hadn't put it all together quite yet being an actual first year rookie not a redshirt one. :lol

Philly is better than OKC. Not saying much.

You're assuming that the Jazz wouldn't keep the pace down. They have OKC playing at their pace. It's been one of the keys to the series

Why are you talking about games that were against one of the worst teams in the league? They've been one of the best the past couple of months?


Yes Saric hit 3's like he never had before. He was shooting around 30% or something going into that game. He had a big night. The Favors/Gobert/Rubio experiment was horrible at that time too. It's gotten better since than though Ricky is still a joke!

Udoh can give Embiid more problems than about anyone not named Gobert. He is an elite rim protector.

OKC depending on a triple double from Westbrook is their problem along with Carmelo

The Jazz were a horrible team at that time. Those stats you are using are useless. Thunder were 3-1 against the Jazz early in the year too. Clippers won the season series against the Jazz last year. The playoffs are a different animal and the Jazz are built for it because of Gobert's dominance.

Both missed one game against each other this season:rolleyes:

Simmons 9 games into his career was pegged run away rookie of the year?:facepalm
You do realize that Simmons is only 2 months older than Mitchell right? When Mitchell was actually playing and getting better in college Simmons was in a boot recovering what a advantage. Bu- bu- but he had a NBA diet:lol

76ers can play either on the break or half court and would beat the jazz in a series at either pace:sleeping

76ers weren't a good team at that time either. Embiid came in with 31 games in 3 years...Simmons a rookie....Saric 1 year under his belt and Reddick a new addition to the team. We got players who were part of the rotation at the time that don't even see the floor now..Philly like the Jazz also picked up the pace around New years and only got better with the additions of Bellineli and Ersan. Only reason I bring these games up is because you brought up Simmons from the first game they played with only 9 games experience. Not impressed with Simmons at the time? Neither was I with Mitchell in those game either.

Saric started slow in the season just like last year but he finished the season at 40% from 3 and that % has only gone up since the playoffs started. Not one player 6'10 or taller hit more 3s than Saric. Did it occur to you that he hit 5 threes against Favors because Favors can't run out and play perimeter D?

Embiid would eat Udoh for breakfast in the low post. I think everyone would agree.

I wouldn't bring up those games if you didn't bring up Simmons vs the Jazz. It works both ways buddy....

Utah and Philly are both teams that improved as the season went on. Philly has a better starting 5 and a much deeper team and like the Jazz we play team ball. It's no fluke we finished with a top 5 record in the NBA.

I was impressed with Mitchell from the get go. There was no doubt he was a player. Hard to predict he'd be this good so fast though

Favors does fine on the perimeter. That's one reason the Jazz can get away with playing big.

Embiid eats everyone for lunch the rare times he actually is on the floor. Udoh would make him work for it though assuming Embiid wasn't in the training room.

It's highly debatable if they have a better starting 5 especially since their best player isn't always a part of it They might because Rubio sucks though.

The ball wasn't moving when their coach insisted on Hood getting 30 minutes a night and that Johnson was on the floor for big minutes instead of Jerebko/Thabo.

The Jazz success is all about Rudy. They are a horrible basketball team without him. They get away with the joke that is Rubio and no shooting outside of Ingles because he is that good. He's completely taken the paint away from Westbrook and co.

Watch this video of Saric vs Favors and Gobert... And than when the jazz made adjustments same result
https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://m.youtube.com/watch%3Fv%3D0qUJgJyMTuc&ved=0ahUKEwi45ZO5ptPaAhWPuVMKHQSCCPIQwqsBCC0wAg&usg=AOvVaw2u5Pl1L81eWvwf-_xgb4up

Embiid played more games than Gobert this year. Yes he had the injury bug earlier in his career but he's past it. Embiid man handles bulky big man let alone a twig like Udoh. He's a good post defender but he can't bang bodies with Embiid or stop that sweet J.

When comparing starting 5
Embiid > Gobert...if basketball was just defense It would be Gobert but it's not
Saric > Favors.. Stats, age, today's game and versitlity proves it
Covington = Ingles...debatable the closest matchup could go either way
Reddick < Mitchell.... Obviously
Simmons > Rubio.... Obviously
PHI Bench > Utah Bench

Westbrook is the most naturally gifted, most athletic point guard in the nba, but he is also by far the dumbest.

Carmelo used to be a great scorer. He is less than average now. Phil Jackson completely ruined him.

Paul George only takes bad shots. He is sometimes good at making them, but there is no consistency to his game.

All in all the worst trio of all stars ever assembled. Utah will take them down in game 5 and we can all be freed from watching this mess of a team forever, because there is no way OKC can bring back those 3 guys next year.

And I was impressed with Simmons from the get go as well.

Watch this video of Saric vs Favors and Gobert... And than when the jazz made adjustments same result

Embiid didn't play in a back to back until when? April? His minutes are still limited. Barely played more minutes than Rudy despite the game difference. Just came back from his second broken face bone. He's yet to show he is durable. Gobert has has had basically 3, 1 month injury's now in his career.

Favors is 26. Yet to hit his prime. He's over the hill? Favors plays both ends of the floor. Haven't heard about Saric being a defensive wiz. Favors is also pretty versatile. Inside and out at both ends. Two positions. He's done whatever the Jazz have needed him to do.

Oh yeah, hey Xiao, remember when you swore to me that Patterson and Abrines were legit threats from deep?

L.O.L.

Wrong.

Patterson = .5 3pg

Abrines = 1.25 3pg

Like I said, high percentages are meaningless on low volume, unless its a game winning shot, making a single three or less doesn't help at all.

Surprisingly they are only separated by a one in the totals but Pushoff-P is responsible for most of them, while the Jazz have 3 players with at least 2 makes per game so far, that level of predictability is working against OKC.

There is no way around this. This is a legacy hurting series so far on Russ. He's been terrible.

I agree with this, to an extent...but all that means is that Rubio is their best option and has had a great series so far.

You make it sound like I'm arguing Rubio is the best player.

He's clearly, in my opinion, not even in the top 3 players on this team.

Gobert / Mitchell / Ingles are all clearly better and more valuable players to me.

But...he has played a great series overall given everything involved. I really don't know how anyone could deny this.

Crowder was shooting 25% in the playoffs entering tonight's game. He shot 39% in the RS as a Jazz.

In other words, he's a putrid offensive player. Brad Stevens is a GOD for making him look competent all those years.

I thought he sucked in Dallas. Then he looks great in Boston and I think he's good.

Then watch him in every other situation and he's just nothing of note.

This team would be considerably better with just Jae Crowder instead of Melo.

Melo is not solely at fault for the struggles, but he's easily the biggest factor. No impact on either end and everyone has to pretend he's good.

I still think the Jazz will win, if Gobert and Rubio didn't get into early foul trouble that lead stands, and their losses have come at the hands of stellar indivual performances, OKC ball movement is still trash and they give up weakside corner threes all game long, but that performance showed how quickly the tides can turn (when the refs are calling series extending garbage)

I feel bad for Xiao that he actually think his teams gonna win, or even be competitive with OKC

This is a 5 game series fellas, 6 absolute max
Yea, probably 6 with Utah winning..... IF it goes 7, I don't see Utah being able to win. My money is on a Utah closeout game 6 though..

Rubio played 36 horrid minutes? How many minutes of suckage does he need for them to win? :confusedshrug:
"36 horrid minutes" ? dude,,, just stop exaggerating everything about Rubio in a negative light. He shot poorly, but he ran the offense well, Nothing was working in the 4th, but that was not just on him.

Melo should keep attacking Gobert. He's prob one of the few ppl that can score on him, I'm sure Rudy doesn't wanna pick up some cheap fouls after last game

Snyder with some garbage coaching. Why is your PG playing only 7 minutes in the first quarter, you saving him for 1, 2, 3, Cancoon?
