Bertans did record 2 rebounds and attempt 4 threes in his 23 minutes of cardio.
The Latvian Laser, who actually didn't look terrible last game (14 points on 5-10 shooting, 4-8 from three), didn't have his finest outing. He fouled out at the beginning of the fourth quarter.
Last offseason, the Wizards signed Bertans to a 5-year, $80 million extension.
He also hit two game tying shots to send it to overtime and then double overtime. He also set a playoff record for threes hit.
This is one of the greatest playoff performances ever seen, cannot believe they lost. He drilled clutch shot after clutch shot, everyone knew it was going in when he shot during Dame Time. Absolutely unbelievable.
On the 2nd game of a back-to-back, on a night where Steph Curry struggled mightily, Andrew Wiggins put on a show. He was lights out from 2, had a big first half and also scored 13 in the 4th. He showed up huge tonight.
He looked like his usual self tonight. He also happened to end up being the Suns leading scorer in this game. Who do u think ends up winning this series ?
3 assists w/ 6 turnovers versus the Lakers
5 assists w/ 7 turnovers versus the Grizzlies
Undoubtedly one of the greatest offensive players in the history of the game, but those double teams seem to affect him more than guys like LeBron/Harden because of his limited size.
Of course he still averaged 38.0 PPG lol
#Edit: Video of turnovers here
Butler also had 2 steals and 2 blocks and went 2-10 from three, including hitting a game-tying layup to send the game to OT.
The Boston Celtics entered tonight's game 3 down 2-0 against the Brooklyn Nets. In what was essentially a must-win game, they quickly found themselves in a 19-4 hole.
That's when Jayson Tatum woke up, scoring 13 points in the final eight minutes of the opening frame. He added 8 points in the 2nd, a whipping 19 in the third and 10 in the fourth, giving him 50 for the game. He put up 50, while committing just one turnover. When his team needed him the most, he put them on his back.
edit: He had one turnover. I missed it when it happened and I sincerely apologise to those I have misled.
Russell Westbrook continues his ridiculous streak of playmaking against the Cleveland Cavaliers. This is his 183rd career triple double and his 37th of the season.
He has been insane since the All-Star break. With this win, the Wizards have just locked in a spot in the play-in tournament.
“Thybulle defended him for the next most possessions, 10 of them, he held him to 2 points on 1-2 shooting, blocking the one miss, and forcing two turnovers.”
Beal still got his buckets no doubt, and really impressively so in the 3rd quarter, but these two did as well as you could hope for in making it hard for him
Bam Adebayo making a push for that DPOY late in the season. Held Embiid to a poor night of shooting while going 18/12/8 on the offensive end.
Heat looking like a spooky matchup in the playoffs after a slow start of the season
He scored 14 points in the fourth quarter. He was a big part of their win tonight. What a masterclass performance by CP3.
Playoffs Jrue comes up big again in the Bucks' slaughter of the culture-ful Miami Heat. He scored 19 points on 7/10 FG, and 2/4 3PT to go along with a game high +41 (7th all time in the playoffs). And he did it with 12 assists and only 2 turnovers.
Last game, Jrue had +37.
The Bucks and Nets are going to be quite a treat to watch with their big 3s battling it out.
He nearly brought the Wizards back from a 16 point deficit, mans was absolutely electric in the quarter and along with Bertans and Rui absolutely put the team on his back. Incredible performance.
From this piece by Marcus Thompson in the Athletic:
> “I think it’s very important when being a facilitator,” Green said, “you have to be willing to get that turnover — sometimes to teach or sometimes to show guys what’s there and what you need from them. Earlier this year, I would get the ball in the pocket and I keep telling guys, ‘Cut! Cut! Back door!’ It took a while. It took some botched lob attempts. It took some turnovers. They finally got it. They finally see, ‘Oh, when this happens, if I cut I can get a dunk.’ But if I stopped making that pass earlier, we’re possibly taking six to eight points a game away from ourselves. And six to eight points in the NBA, that’s all the difference in the game.”
Mountain Mike has been locked in so far during the playoffs and playing brilliant basketball to lead the Jazz to a 2-1 lead. It must be bittersweet for Grizzlies fans to see their franchise legend hurting them but I'm sure that at the same time they're thrilled to see him play so well.
The Clippers had every opportunity to win that game and take control of this series. And they upchucked again and again and again. So many inexplicably careless turnovers. So many missed open shots. So little backbone. They are done.
Skip with a rare W
The Heat only stayed in the game because of their role players stepping up and carrying the offensive load. Bam looked invisible in the game, Jimmy was shooting up bricks but did tie the game to go to OT, and Herro was not good at all today. The big two need to step up and Herro needs to become a sniper again if the Heat want a chance to compete.
So far this might be the worst game of Luka's playoff career. Just didn't look good, and if Luka doesn't look good the Mavs don't look good.
Kawhi Leonard today:
10-15 FG He is the 2nd player with a 25/10/5 game on 0 turnovers in a Game 7 since 1983. The other was Kobe Bryant in 2002.
Russell Westbrook put up his 30th triple-double this season tonight (and his 13th this month) in a solid win over the defending champions.
This continues the Wizards hot streak, winning 9 out of their last 10 games.
This puts him at 176 career triple-doubles, 6 short of overtaking the Big O's league record of 181. There are ten games left in the season.
He was so important in this win yesterday and without him taking on a scoring role we wouldn't have stood a chance yesterday. It's probably time to start him over Facu.
Fortunately for Lakers in the immediate vicinity of LeBron James in the locker room, the Lakers beat Steph Curry and the Warriors in the play-in tournament game for the seventh seed in the Western Conference. Here are some of my observations.
#1) SHIT-TIER LAKERS SPACING
For some unknown reason (possibly to avoid Andre Drummond's whining), the Lakers did not start their best lineup (Davis at C) for a game that would put them two losses from missing the playoffs. What makes the already sub-par two big spacing worse is the fact that the Lakers really lack shooting from the point guard position as well. Caruso shot 40% from three this season but on a measly 2.4 attempts. Schroder has regressed to almost exactly his career average from three (3.4 3PA, 33.7%) after posting career highs in both attempts and percentage last season. THT is super young and not a good shooter whatsoever.
In Exhibit A, LeBron is posting up the guy he traded to Minnesota in favour of the guy who averaged 8.5 PPG in the 2016 Finals. The spacing is disgusting and Green can help off of Davis to bother LeBron, who promptly gets absolutely stuffed by Wiggins.
[KCP turns it over after sending a pass into a tangle of limbs](https://www.nba.com/stats/events/?GameEventID=281&GameID=0052000121&Season=2020-21&flag=1&title=Caldwell-Pope%20Bad%20Pass%20Turnover%20(P1.T7), two of which were added by Draymond Green, who was guarding Drummond in the dunker's spot and was able to make the very short rotation to stifle Davis' roll.
THT is not a good shooter at all, so Juan Toscano-Anderson shows zero hesitation in helping all the way off him on the weak side and ends up stuffing James under the rim.
At a certain point, Vogel must've checked Twitter or Reddit and seen that Lakers fans were wishing plagues upon his house. The Lakers introduced more spacing-friendly lineups in the third and the difference was palpable:
I better not see my boy getting hate for today, he was very good and got let down by Randle and the rest of the team today. His strongest game of the series so far
If you don't respect him at his Worstbrook you don't deserve him at his Bestbrook when he tries to drag the Wizards to the play-in game. I hope to god we get the Nets-Wizards series of destiny, the Wizards look scary with Westbrook/Beal/Gafford and could surprise people
shoutout to /u/MITWestbrook for believing in this man and this team when few people did
LeBron’s struggled to score for much of the game, but his playmaking was on point. Comparing this to Dray’s 8 AST on 6 TOV and Steph’s 3 AST on 6 TOV, I thought LeBron’s passing performance was super impressive in a defense-oriented game.
Not just the stats, too. Eye test showed the difficult passes he was making to set up teammates.
The team’s gonna need him to do more scoring-wise but for the time being, great passing performance from Bron.
His one turnover is here. Shoutout Dray, generational defensive talent
Not the absolute worst stats but for a max contract and a supposed “Second Option” than Khris Middleton has actually been super disappointing in the playoffs
Big Game Tae is the best backup point guard in the nba and he is going to be crucial for us in this upcoming series. Want 38+ minutes from Tae. Nugs in 6
Luka Doncic checks out tonight: 12 points on 4-16 shooting, 0-4 from 3, 5 boards, 5 assists, and 5 turnovers in 25 minutes
Some of the three-pointers were clutch. The third highest scorer on the Golden State Warriors Tonight. Jordan Poole tonight: 20 points on 6/10 shooting, 4 rebounds, and only 1 turnover in 20 minutes
My first DD on GME! And yes of course I'll add the obligatory "this is not investment advice but rather my own opinion based on publicly available information. Carefully consider your own investment objectives and risk factors before investing."
TLDR: Nearly the entire float of available GME shares trades hands EVERY SINGLE TRADING DAY. Stocks with extremely high Turnover Ratio like this are subject to VOLATILE and sometimes VIOLENT changes in price, depending on which side of the demand/supply equation you’re on. With 2x-5x float likely in short and naked-short synthetic positions the MOASS is not a question of if, but when.
I don’t know about you folks, but I guess after a few down days and a $224/share avg I needed some additional reassurance that our GME will indeed take off one day. So, I dug deep into the memory banks and recalled one important supply-demand ratio from my investment finance classes, namely the Turnover Ratio (TRO).
Do you ever notice how some stocks seem to soar suddenly, often with little or no news? While other stocks can receive ongoing great news and hardly move higher at all? Well, my smooth brained apes…as you can imagine it’s all about supply and demand.
At the end of the day what makes a stock rise in value? If you answered “more buyers than sellers” then you win a banana! So how do we compare one stock to another and determine how changes in demand can affect the upward (or downward movement) of the price?
A quick definition check:
10-D AVG VOL (10-day average volume): Reflects more current trading activity, expressed as average daily volume over the last 10 trading days
FL (Float): We’re all well versed on this one, but just in case float is “the number of shares outstanding, or all the shares there are for that company, minus what is owned by insiders and what the company is holding back (treasury stock). In a nutshell, associate the float with the supply of shares available to be traded at any given time by the public.”
So with those definitions in mind, I decided to pull Yahoo Finance’s Top 25 most active stocks for today, March 16th and dive right in. Most active stocks are listed in order of today’s volume. I then added additional columns for, you guessed it, 10-D AVG VOL and FL.
This now sets us up for the simple TURNOVER RATIO (TRO) calculation, which is 10-D AVG VOL / FL.
If the float is very large relative to the average volume (lots of shares ou... keep reading on reddit ➡
