As I wrote, at the very least the relevant paragraph. If they are adamant that we cant even put a paragraph or two here, just ban them outright because its not contributing to a good discussion when 95% of people cant read it. -4

Sure, but if we cant even have the relevant paragraph its useless specifically here, on r/nba. If we cant have access to it, then have the hard paywall sites banned. 0

This is a live table. It updates by the end of every game. Of course it doesnt account for % minute-by-minute. Once this game ends (its still going...) then it will update. -2

I dont think people understood what I meant by "live" table. Live doesnt mean updates in real time, it means not static. But it makes a lot of sense for the update interval to be at the end of each game. 3

Westbrook doesnt qualify because hes not shooting enough 3s (this is actually a good thing, considering he shoots 30%). But comparing him to them doesnt do them right. When it comes to TS% Westbrook is #180 out of 185, with an astonishingly low 44.9 TS% 6

You need 82 threes to qualify, didnt shoot that many yet. [or more correctly, hasnt shot enough so you can assume hell make 82 this season. Its automatic, I dont make up the qualification rules] 3

I love Luka so I really dont mind. Thats also why I bothered putting TS% there to begin with, to give it context. However, Ill just take the L on this one lol 1

Serious Why didnt the Nets just foul as soon as the Cavs inbounded With just 5 2 seconds to go and up 3 the Cavs with no TO and with Sexton just missing a number of free throws this would have effectively iced the game 10:17 am Thu Jan 21 EDTRemoved

You can tell the red "were going to foul" and in that case they dont give a shooting foul, they do this quite often. 1

After theyve copied our genius "dunks and 3 pointers" strategy, it only makes sense to go all the way. 1

The Cavs have just intentionally fouled them a couple of times in a row, making them take free throws... Its the same strategy. 1

Lonzo stock is abysmally low, hes almost out of the NBA-500 with how low its traded (when you are out, you are valued as a trash stock - or in NBA terms, the G league). I think actually BUY on Lonzo, he still has more in him and maybe last years shooting 3
