Was a fan of Edwards when he was coming out of Pepperdine. Thought he was a good fit as a scoring 3. Saw him play with the Nets once and was sufficiently impressed but not blown away.
But with this extended run with the Kings, I’ve really like what I’ve seen. His defense and rebounding is way ahead of where I thought it was, and he’s a reliable spot up shooter. He’s got great length and works really hard. He’s in great condition.

I think there’s a reason why Brown is giving him some run early when guys like Dozier can’t get off the bench. Monte may have picked up a nice rotation piece for free.

Miller’s, I didn’t see it or I don’t understand the definition of reckless, which I may not in terms of a basketball definition. It may just be the league doesn’t want shooters to be landing on a foot and that is all it takes to be reckless.

Yep. A shooter lands on a closing players foot that is a foul. Must also be reckless by definition.

Was HB closing? He did jump, but it looked to me that he landed where he had started.

Suppose a defender simply stands just inside the three point line and the shooter jumps into him. Is that a defensive foul?

Yep. That said, if Barnes and Edwards make all of their FT’s we aren’t really talking about Fox’s clutch shot.

I’d rather they have hit the FT’s.

If you look close Barnes’ hand moves a bit as Derozan is going up. Ticky tack but a foul.

Mike’s point is all I had to say….I am looking at it again on DVR. You have to be right that if it happened at all it was on the way up and not as he was shooting. Derozan acted a bit to make it look like HB came under him again

I did the same thing and could see wher that might be a touch but when they show it from another angle, it seems clear that he doesn’t touch him., and Demar traveled, and that should’ve been called at least we won…

I didn’t see it on the TV plays unless there was a tiny tiny touch as Derozan went up before the shot.

The best part of that Fox shot was the despair in the Bulls commentators’ voices when he crossed half court and was 1-on-1. They pretty much called it before he even attempted the shot.

Stacey King all but roasted Patrick Williams for not closing out on a hard double team on Fox. I was like, dayummmm.

You could also tell he was disappointed that the Bulls took so many 3’s given that the Kings don’t have rim protection given that he mentioned it at least 20 times in the 4th qtr. LOL

Cuban is trying to convince himself the Mavs still did the right thing in acquiring Kyrie. His skill set and Luka’s game overlap quite a bit particularly late in close games.
