Well, I had a commitment AND a cable box outage so I couldn't watch OR record this. I'm hoping to find a replay or at least Monte's highlights on Youtube later. A buddy of mine texted me that Monte was "getting buckets" so I tried to steal a look at my phone. As has been the case in many of the playoff games, Monte provided a huge spark in the first half, with 12 of his 14 points and led them to a 10-point lead at half. Hard to believe that they'd be up 2-1 without AD's buzzer-beater in Game 2. Don't count out these Nuggets. Great coast-to-coast bucket here by Tae:Impactful night for Monte in Game 3 win over the Lakers for the Nuggets. 14 points on 5/7 shooting, 2/4 from 3.
Yeah, I've been wondering about the extension. On one hand, there's so much uncertainty about the cap etc. for next season. On the other, they're certainly not going to find a more consistent role player. If he were a consistent threat to knock down 3's, he's definitely be getting an immediate extension. But Malone loves the guy so I'm interested to know what they'll do.I wonder if they will extend Monte this offseason with 1 year left on his deal. It is interesting to me that he makes his living off of mid-range jump shots in the pick and roll. He would be crucified by this meYeahssage board with shot selection after the Hoiball era.

That was so clutch. M. Morris (Iowa State) over M. Morris (Kansas / douche).
I was watching with the wife and son and I said, watch this, he's the smallest guy on the court and he's going to get a rebound here. Sure enough he did.Game 4 - Lakers up 5 @ halftime. Good contribution by Monte, with 4 points on a drive (took his buddy Kuzma to the hole) and a rebound and put back on a free throw (probably the smallest guy on the court). He also had 3 assists. C'mon, Nuggets!
Frankly it's disgusting. But having been a fan of the NBA for over 20 years, not surprising. I know the outcome and I still watch anywayI was watching with the wife and son and I said, watch this, he's the smallest guy on the court and he's going to get a rebound here. Sure enough he did.
I just don't think the Nuggets have much of a chance. LeBron is a great player but he becomes unstoppable when he gets the star treatment that he does. He knows it too, that is why he switched to guarding Murray when he was making unbelievable shot after shot. He knew that they wouldn't call most of the fouls he would commit trying to slow Murray down. The way he was playing last night Murray deserved a W but it just wasn't to be.
