Wasn’t he initiating the offense pretty much every time down?

A couple of times he did not and it cost them.  Know the pecking order.

They're both great young players. They have completely different games, so I won't compare them. I'd take them both on my team.

Yes.  I really hope Minny shocks the world tonight and Edwards goes off.

Just as OKC wasn't quite ready to "shock the world," I'm feeling that it isn't quite the Timberwolves' turn yet.

As a fan, I'd be fine with either Minnesota or Denver. I really like watching both teams play. I just think Jokic, Murray and the Nuggets will do what's necessary to win tonight.

Ya....that seems most likely. 

Doncic kind of annoys me.  The constant complaining has more than gotten old.  I will be rooting for either Denver or Minny to win WCF and ultimately the chip.

The expected happened

Championship team showed up.

Up and comers have zero clue on offense.

Gobert and Conley helped steer the development. But wow was that first half a flashing light as to why those two have never won anything.

Your hostility towards manatees is totally inexcusable.  They're a wonderful species and have graced our planet for 50 million years.

Edwards clearly fouled on that drive.  Then they call a moving screen?  Bcrape.

50 million years ago we were monkeys. No we we've got the internet, AI and space travel.
What have manatees done with their time?

The list is long.  They're highly influential in protecting a number of our marine species.   They're also kind and gentle.  Leave them alone and stop disparaging them.

Wow … I didn’t see that coming. Good for the Wolves! Fun, talented, hard-working team.

Winning with Ant going 6-24 is very impressive.

NBA is about to have its 6th different champion in 6 years.  In fact, no champ has made it back to the finals the following year since Golden State in 2019.

Why the uptick in parity?  Is it good or is it bad?  Is there a dynasty among the 4 teams remaining?

I don’t think any champion has made it past the 2nd round since 2019 either.

The supermax is causing some parity. It used to be the true superstars got stupid money. Now guys like Jaylen Brown are a no doubt, no questions asked, pay him as much as he is eligible for for as long as he is eligible to sign. And to win a title, you need 2 players better than Jaylen Brown. So you’re going to be paying 3 players way too much money to give yourself a complete roster, especially now with the aprons.

Zach Lowe was talking about the Thunder and how windows close quickly, they’re going to have to pay Chet and Williams super maxes. Don’t get me wrong, those are nice young players. But it just being a foregone conclusion that guys like that get super max money is wild.

Teams are also losing depth pieces. The Nuggets never were able to replace Bruce Brown off the bench this year. Even Jeff Green had a veteran, defensive role that was valuable last year and nowhere this year. So starters are playing larger minutes.
