The Golden State Warriors and Utah Jazz kick off their Western Conference Semifinals series on Tuesday in a matchup airing at 10:30 p.m. ET on TNT and available for live stream on TNT Drama.
The Raptors revamped their wing rotation specifically to compete with James in the playoffs. They signed DeMarre Carroll, a physical defender with the “junkyard dog” tag, two summers ago. He got bullied by James in the playoffs last season.
The Raptors went ahead and added another physical defender in P.J. Tucker at the trade deadline this season. That hasn’t worked either.
The Cavaliers, on the other hand, have had DeRozan’s number. In Game 2, he Cheap Epl Jerseys only scored one point in the first three quarters and finished with five points on 2-of-11 shooting. He shouldn’t feel bad. Few teams have been able to stop The King when he’s on a mission.
As for DeRozan’s bet, good luck. Only a few teams out West have had Cheap Eagles Jerseys success stopping James, who is on pace to make his seventh straight NBA Finals appearance.
Who knows, maybe Kevin Durant or Draymond Green can use an extra hundred bucks. I don’t want to give Markkanen to the Timberwolves in every mock draft, but no one else really fills a need here. Minnesota isn’t taking De’Aaron Fox after picking Kris Dunn at No. 5 last season and Monk seems redundant with Zach LaVine already on the roster. Markkanen makes sense as an elite shooter in the frontcourt who can add some instant offense around Andrew Wiggins and Karl-Anthony Towns.
