I think this image tells it all.
2 of the top 10 players? Harden and.... Paul? Chris Paul is good, but not top 10We're obviously not as good as them. They won what 64 games and own 2 of the top 10 players in the league. We need Rubio back, and some luck, to win this series.
When Joe reads the defense correctly, he can make those lobs. My complaint, which you refuse to acknowledge has any validity, is that sometimes Joe appears to be going through the motions. He makes the lobs at the rim when Gobert/Favors/Mitchell are being heavily defended and, all too often, these end up being TOs or offensive fouls. This was very apparent in Game 3.Did you miss game 2 where we had about 7 or 8 lob dunks to Gobert/Favors?
