Re: OKC: Part III - Adams has a big night in Utah

It's been an adjustment from how I was playing with Westbrook. Paul is short and slow, so getting to the rim to score isn't really an option.

I wouldn't be surprised to see him average more assists than points this season.

As far as gameplay is concerned, being an underdog seems to suit you!

What a crazy finish. I think the lead changed hands at least 5 times in the final two minutes.

Part of me would have been okay if we had lost (because of the draft), but I'm glad that the shot fell at the end (Y)

Gamewinners are always satisfying, especially if you remember the days when jumpshots were barely viable in games.

It's funny how the whole 'tanking' plan goes out of the window when there is a chance to win the game in the dying seconds.

We play Houston again next up. Hopefully I can find a way to stop Capela from dominating this time.

For some reason my starters were super fatigued during this game. It felt like they barely got on the court before they needed another rest.

Maybe I need to adjust some sliders or something.

Isn't there progressive fatigue in MyLEAGUE? Might've just been a once-off. Rockets will have you running all over the place, too.

Yeah, I think there is.

I guess having two 34-year-olds in my starting line-up means that fatigue will be an issue at times this season. I could always rotate my starters every few games and give some younger guys more playing time. That would play into the tanking narrative and would give me a better chance to see how many of the younger guys are worth keeping long-term.

Definitely might have to manage their minutes a little more and try to use them in spurts. Melo has a lot of mileage.

Boston Celtics [10-5] vs Oklahoma City Thunder [6-9]

Adams leads Thunder to dramatic overtime victory in Boston

Image


BOS | 35 | 24 | 33 | 23 | 21 | 136 |
OKC | 23 | 33 | 29 | 30 | 25 | 140 |

Player of the Game: Steven Adams
(33pts, 20reb, 2ast, 2stl, 2blk)

(14-18 FG, 5-11 FT)

Simmed Game

NYK | 23 | 23 | 32 | 16 | 94 |
OKC | 26 | 21 | 18 | 26 | 91 |

POTG: Bobby Portis (17pts, 14reb, 2blk)


Record: 7-9



We found ourselves in a 30-15 hole late in the first quarter, but Nerlens Noel dug us out of it. He went 9/9 and had 18 points in the first half. Got us back to within 3 points by half time.

Chris Paul picked up 4 fouls in the first half and thus spent a lot of time on the bench. Him ending up with 11 assists is actually pretty impressive.


We basically trailed for the entire game until the fourth quarter. We had the lead in the final minute, but Boston tied it up. A last second Gallinari heave missed and it went to overtime.

As much as I want a high draft pick, it's just too hard to turn off my competitiveness during close games. Happy with the win (Y)

Another satisfying win there. I get what you mean about fighting the urge to tank, but I don't think that makes for a very fun gameplay experience. Tanking is better left to seasons where you're heavily simming, in my opinion.

Meanwhile, Adams is putting together an All-Star year. Great performance in that comeback victory!

I hope his stats will be enough to put him in over the bigger names. Right now he is averaging 17 points, 14 rebounds and 2 blocks per game.

Even if he misses out on all-star selection, at least he'll be one of the favourites to win Most Improved Player.
