Wow, Adams and Jordan were all over the boards! It's amazing Allen was able to grab 12 of his own.

I've noticed several players grabbing 15+ rebounds in games this season. I'm not sure why though, because I haven't really been playing any differently.

Adams 20 vs Gobert 15
Capela 22

Adams actually got some MVP chants late in the game whilst shooting free throws. I like to think it was the game acknowledging his great recent form.

Great finish! I've said it before, but gamewinners in games are almost as exciting as in real life, in part because the AI has a tendency to screw you over in those situations.

It's actually pretty crazy that we were even in that position after that terrible first quarter.

I had planned to pass to Melo for a potential game-winner, but then the defense split and opened the lane right up. So I just drove straight in and hoped that they wouldn't block the shot. Luckily CP3 still has some speed in those old legs :wink:

I have a habit of trying to go for gamewinning layups in general. It's a throwback to a time when jumpshots weren't nearly reliable enough in video games.

I'm enjoying these battles between old school bigs. A shame you couldn't come out on top, but the rebounding numbers are still insane.

What a crazy game! They jumped us in the first half with insane shooting from outside (11/15 3pt).

We fought back in the third and then got our noses in front late in the fourth. Trae Young missed a three on the buzzer that would have taken it to overtime.


They shot 11/15 from 3pt in first half, but only 3/15 in the second half.

I think I've figured out why the rebounding numbers are so high this season, although it doesn't really make sense to me.

Basically instead of controlling a perimeter player on defense, I'm controlling Adams in order to position him for rebounds. But I don't know where the opposition players are getting all these extra rebounds from.

And at the same time Noel is having some big rebounding games, but I'm not doing anything to try to pad his numbers in the same way as Adams :?

That is weird. Makes for an interesting story for the season, though.

Also, great comeback against the Hawks! Another example of why you should never ragequit.

Curry did pretty well considering he sat out the majority of the first quarter with 2 fouls. Weirdly he was also on the bench for the final minute of the game, when it was up for grabs.

Has to feel different playing them without Thompson and Durant. A little more manageable, judging by those quarter-by-quarter scores.

Oh yeah, they are definitely easier to play against now. But Curry is playing insanely well this season now that he has to carry the offensive burden all by himself. I think he is mid-thirties for PPG right now.

They haven't fallen down the standings as I thought they would. I guess their role players are doing enough to support Curry.

I think it's around 18 ppg and 14.5 rpg, which are comfortably career-highs for him.

Giannis, Gobert, Whiteside and DeAndre Jordan are all averaging more rebounds than Adams, somehow. The crazy rebounding numbers seem to be league-wide.

The best part about these two wins over the Nuggets is that we own their 2020 first round pick. Those two losses could move it an extra spot or two higher up the draft order at the end of the season (Y)

He almost got a triple-double with blocks, but I think 20 assists is probably beyond his capabilities. Even in stat-padding mode :wink:
