Steph Curry at 35 dropping 50 in game 7! He was taking tough shots and making it. Incredible!
Most of it was the kings leaving him WIDE open 😂 relax
@KevinG On a night where the rest of his team shot .441 from 2 and .286 from 3 on the other 62 possessions, Steph shot .650 from 2 and .389 from 3 on his 38 possessions to claw back those 50 points. Despite the Sacramento focusing all their attention on Steph and even starting to leave Klay loosely guarded at times when he went cold, Steph put up that kind of efficiency.
Shooting efficiency on volume is impressive because the quality of shots you generate are based to a large degree on finding the best shot a defense allows on a given possession.
Think of it this way: if you’re shooting, say, 40% from 3 and 50% from 2, why don’t you take 38 shots every night?
Because you can’t. what differentiates a 50 point night on a good percentage, is that somehow on 38 possessions, you were able to find shots good enough to shoot high percentage. And if he had shot 40 times, I guarantee you the extra 2 shots would have been among the more difficult shots he took that night.
@Jakub Kosibaevery opponent in their 4 championship runs had “size and Length” over the Warriors.
@Brian Keegan Exactly. It was obvious how dirty Sac played throughout the series and were being enabled to keep doing it. In my opinion Sacramento were pampered through the series which always shifted the momentum and got frustrated and emotional when it wouldn’t go their way. “They couldn’t finish”
He is peaking the 2nd time
Steph actually is an elite athlete….some people can jump incredibly high, some are incredibly quick…….Steph’s cardio is God Tier…..
@steven g bro we can fucking walk in football….. messi literally walks 70% of the game basketball cardio cannot be compared to football ik because ive played both professionally in england…
Not only that, Steph has high level basketball and sports IQ
@steven g You’ve never done “suicides” and it shows..
@steven g soccer players stand around for half the game! What a joke!
@Coy Shuffles yeah I was a defensive midfielder and left full back at times and there is tons of resting in soccer/football lol
JT is the best. I feel like other hosts tell me what happened (box score breakdown, and the highlights), but JT gives me the why and the how. He covers matchups, strategy, player skills and weaknesses, tendencies, situational breakdowns, etc. I feel like every time I tune in to his content I learn something and I become a better more insightful basketball fan. Just great work guys. Keep it up 👍👍
@Anthony Hutchinson Jason Timpf, the guy Colin is speaking with on this clip.
Who is JT
@Richard Bensonthis amount of copium should be illegal
He’s my favorite analyst. It’s always thorough and fair.
JT dumbs it down when he has to collab with Collin. When he’s on his own, he’s the best.
Love the actual analysis from Jason, not just opinionist
He was spot on bro! I agree
Colin is the master of talking in hindsight and making people think he knew all along 😅
@Sean ODay Lebron and Tristian Thompson the oldest players lol 😂. Lakers got way younger post trade deadline moving Westbrook, Pat Bev contract
Same was saying the warriors were done
Can’t double talk a triple talker 😂
Colin just gaslight us every show 😂😂😂
If you watch the highlights on Steph for this 50 pt game, you’ll see about 2 shots coming off screens. They gave Steph the ball, cleared the area, and allowed him to operate 1 on 1. He was like prime Harden but with more efficient shooting. He could have demanded to play this way his entire career but buys into team ball. Most underrated superstar in history, he’s held by the fans to a different standard than every other all time great
nah Steph isn’t as durable as harden used to be
@M E Vanderbilt? You think a PF is going to have success against him? Always that hater who wants to pick apart an all time great performance.
@Ved Patel🤣🤣 your mad I’ll be back here after warriors expose lakers in game 1 👉🤡
@Will Johnwick don’t ever talk basketball you little baby
Jason is absolutely amazing doing this by himself but Jason + Colin is always next level shit. You guys have something special going here please keep it going 🙏
Colin has a great eye for talent. Love what you’re doing Jason.
@Steven🇵🇷 Torres Tim cool too
Jason is one of the best analysts if not the best in the business
@Arnold Palmer ever watched Tim legler?
@Solomon’s Tech I think bringing actual basketball analysis was a a major shortfall of traditional media. The way he breaks down the game and provides context is a great breath of fresh air
Jason is incredible
Jason deserves all the credit in the world. I watch everything he puts up, he’s fantastic.
Colin owns this podcast. He’s made a lot of money throughout his career, yet he’s here staying up doing his job. I respect him. This man. 👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾
If you take a shot of whiskey every time he says “It’s interesting” on his show, you would probably have to be hospitalized. I watch the first hour plus of his show every day. He alternates between very good and infuriating. He cherry picks data. He makes false generalizations about data he show on-screen that the radio audience can’t pick up on. He’s a horrible interviewer, using the first full minute of every question to rehash what he already told you so that the person can react to it, typically someone who will act as a yes-man (other than Klatt and Wright) and never asks follow-ups based on what they say.
@Edward Sudler so?
@Edward Sudler but you still watch. Cope harder next time.
@Missouri Skinwalker Oh you’ve gone off topic now when did it get personal honey oh forget it I could CARE LESS
