Episode details

Today, TrueHoop’s Jarod Hector and David Thorpe discuss the adjustments teams make as their opponents change in the playoffs:

  • The Grizzlies and Warriors went down to the wire in an exciting game one. The final play went to Ja Morant for a layup he missed. Very good play call. Was there an option to pass it to Jaren Jackson Jr. for a three?

  • Draymond Green was assessed a Flagrant 2 foul and ejected, was that the right call by the officials?

  • In the Celtics vs. Bucks series it seemed like it took the Celtics a while to get used to the physicality. Going forward David thinks they will adjust just fine, but the Bucks can’t be counted out.

  • Injuries will most likely decide the NBA champion. In the Heat vs. 76ers series both teams are dealing with significant injuries. Could Philly advance with a limited Embiid?
