Damian Lillard's impossible series ending shot 23 4 19


Recommended Posts

PG13 got the assignment to defend that shot and he called it a bad shot post game interview. Lmfao. Just shut up and face your defeat and go back to the gym and practice to get better like a man. Serious, I swear these NBA players showing their ignorance every time they open their mouth. 

 

Dame is a beast. Best PG in the NBA right now. Period.

He is a beast - I agree with that.  But best PG?  He needs to win something first beyond just beating an overrated Thunder team in the first round (after getting swept last year) with an even more overrated stat-chasing shot jacking PG before putting him ahead of a two-time MVP and three-time champ PG.

He’s not better than Curry. There’s no debate. Absolutely none.

Epic shot, but PG isn't wrong.  It was a bad shot lol.  We all know the idiom about good processes and bad results and bad processes and good results.

He is 4-6 on 30 ft + shots in post season (and one was a half court heave), how is that a bad shot?

Because with 12 seconds left in the game, you can get a way higher percentage shot than a 30 footer. Has he made those shots; yes. But anybody can tell you unless you have 3 seconds left on the shot, there could of been a pass or two and an actual play ran, to get a better look. If he doesn’t make that shot, the topic if they lost would be why not run a play.

You answered your own question: it was a 30 ft + shot in the postseason.  Unless you think he's normally a 66% shooter from there.  If that's the case, why would he shoot anything BUT those?

He shot almost 40% from 30-40 feet during the regular season. A step back 40 footer definitely isn’t a great shot, but he was hot that game I don’t think it was possible for him to take a bad shot

If that was a bad shot, was this one a bad shot as well?

 

I understand what PG is getting as by calling the Dame one a "bad shot" but come on dude. Phrase it in a better way, e.g. "a shot from that distance we can live with" or "we didnt let them get an open look and he hit a miracle shot" etc etc. The way he did it in the presser was just bad form.  Between him and Westy, OKC took all type of L's in that series.

He shot so far from deep because any attempt to penetrate would result in a non-zero (albeit low) chance of a turnover which could lead to a transition play.  Instead he opted for a route which meant basically a zero chance of a turnover and maybe a 35% chance to win the game.  This seems rational given the game was tied.  Also, lmao at OKC being the favorites.  Westbrook is the worst kind of trash talker-the one who doesn't back it up.
