Jaren Jackson, Jr hits an improbable three he heaves from the corner... and it goes in to tie the Spurs with 10 seconds left. To tie the game.

Incredible shot.

Spurs come down and Dillon Brooks gets baited into fouling DeRozan and he hits both free throws with 1 second left.

ugh... killer foul

Wasnt just Zion....it was good defense start to finish. Jrue handles Morant like nobody else

And that was a quiet 24 from BI. It's ridiculous how many of his shots have gone halfway in and popped out in these 3 games

I’m glad everyone has remained so patient over the first three games... /sarcasm.. in any case, now Zion’s fully in the mix- expect the Pels to make it into the playoff, and the Pels to go deep.. okay , maybe not- but in any case i think it was wise to ease Zion in over the first few games.. Now the sky‘s the limit!

Who’s got a handle on the 8th seed scenarios?
Well its really the 9th seed the Pelicans looking at. They are currently 2.5 games out of the 8th seed and 0.5 games out if the 9th. You make the 9th seed you make the play-in game.

The thing is the Pelicans have an "easy" schedule the rest of the way while the teams in front of them have to run a gauntlet.

Opposing team fans already think the NBA has a conspiracy to get the Pelicans into the playoffs.

Wasn’t sure which thread to put this in

Good article on Rudy Gobert
======================

KISSIMMEE, Fla. — Rudy Gobert sat alone in a Disney World ballroom, putting the finishing touches on a rice bowl after practice.


The Utah Jazz’s all-star center set up a folding chair as his makeshift table, his 7-foot-1 frame hunched over as he dined in silence. When he finished, he grabbed a disinfecting wipe, the signature product of the NBA bubble, and methodically cleaned the surface.


When he finished, he nodded that he was ready to detail his emergence as the face of the novel coronavirus in American sports, a physically and emotionally taxing stretch during which he fought off the coronavirus and faced intense criticism for careless behavior leading up to his positive test.


“The media portrayed it like I caused the NBA to shut down,” the soft-spoken Gobert told The Washington Post in an extended interview Friday, “instead of saying that it’s a pandemic and Rudy Gobert tested positive. For a lot of people who don’t think further than what’s put in their faces, they really thought I brought the coronavirus to the United States.”


Gobert, a self-described jokester, smirked at the thought, but he wasn’t kidding............

Nah, screw him
Sure I don’t want to be part of a negative media crush - that must suck
But he seems to hand wave his ‘joking’ - did not see one word of concern about the reporters he put in danger
Just a concern about teammates and how unfair it is to be judged off one video (even though he was a complete jack*** in that video)

Well the pels had the easiest schedule remaining on the regular season after having the hardest schedule in the NBA to this point. One could also point out that if their schedule had been easier they likely would have had the 8th seed locked up or at least been the ones 3 or 4 games ahead.

Also, the tough teams will likely be resting players so those games wont be as difficult as they look on paper

Down 77-70 at the HALF. Lot of points here. Sacramento couldn’t miss in the first quarter and put up 49 points. Pretty good game.

That’s a lot of Grizzlies. Does it take into account their loss of JJJ for the season?

it says “adjustments for injuries” but that’s still a big loss.
