Um, the link is in the bio of the finish line podcast.
It's the grand page finish line.
Podcast is is bringing you a little bit of a sports recap of the Wizards and Heats game.
This is your famous in the carpool, and I watched the full game and I wanted to kind of go through and ****yze some of the parts of the game, Um, and highlight some of the things that I think that you might end up seeing going forward with this heat organization and this team is all.
I'm a huge fan, so I gotta always right from the boys.
And last night we played a really, really good first half um, appreciate your money.
The first half, we actually ended the first half winning up by 19 points.
Now, if you're here that you always know that that kind of is a scary situation.
Because at that point time that means we've got really hot in that first half.
And, you know, the other team is gonna come out and have ready to play.
And that's exactly what the Wizards did.
They ended up coming back out on almost 20 to 6. Run.
They, uh they took the lead at one point in time and eventually in the third quarter, it was like, All right, Erik Spoelstra ended up taking out all of our starters, putting a brand new five in.
And we ended up ending the third quarter on, like, 18 to 6 run, which we really need it.
But we shouldn't have been in that position anyway, um, I say all of us to say it is.
We were up 21 points twice yesterday and we had to go to overtime.
We've gotta figure out a way to consistently play well, even a, um you more up big And I think the Miami Heat, I think we're a team that way like to play when, when It's tough, when we actually have to continue to compete throughout the entire game.
And I think this next game I think we have the Clippers coming up front and I think that's gonna be a game to kind of test us.
I see where we are mentally, Uh, because our team we have really solid team.
There's no one player that's gonna beat you.
It's gonna be a team effort and I think with a lot of teams don't know how to guard is way.
Do start for a lot of people with that 23 zone.
But Bradley Bill obviously was not concerned.
He had 38 points last night.
Excuse me, I had a career high against the Heat because of that.
There's a lot of things that you can do to really damage and we get that zone defense.
However, we played pretty well and it allows us to kind of get out in transition.
Um, it does make the shooter shoot, so we have, you know, there was a lot of big shots from I think his name is Breeches and Isaiah Thomas.
They had to make big shots in the clutch in order to keep them in the game, and they did that here and there.
But there was a lot of times where they weren't able to kind of keep up.
What is because of the fact that they didn't have that great of three point shooters on the team.
Now, also, I want to talk about the six man of war.
Um, now I know he's not going to get.
I don't think he's going to win it, but I think he should definitely be in the compensation for Warren drives it.
Um, last night, he scored 22 points off ***** and tell.
Hero had 25 points off the big shots.
It's highly hero, man.
He's been playing phenomenal.
He had 73 pointers.
Um, it's amazing.
He was He was not going to have everything, but Gord Rajic has been one of those guys who has consistently play well this season, especially coming off the bench and that six man roll.
I don't think that he's going to get highlighted as much as like a Lou Williams is or I can't who's more.
Whoever Ondas simply because of the market that we're playing in now.
I think that if the voters look at it, you can see that Goran Dragic has been averaging almost 18 points off the *****.
And with that being said, that's something that's that's incredible.
You know what I'm saying? He's been allowing us to actually stay in game, compete at a high level because our entire ***** starts to play well and he's out there on the floor.
Last night, he was flirting with a triple double.
He had about 10 rebounds and our 10 assists and seven rebounds.
Like he, he is a guy that works, wants to need to play well, especially going deep into the playoffs and orphans to compete for a championship.
And I think it doesn't look like it like, you know, when you look at the roster, you're like, Oh, this roster probably would not make promises But I think we can.
I think this Miami team has a big, um, huge opportunity right now to take lead by storm and end up winning and going to the finals.
I don't know if we will win it.
Dependent on what we play in the West, however, you know basketball games arrest and it's a seven game series.
I think if we can get home court advantage more through the playoffs, um, at least through the Eastern Conference would be fun.
The only issue is the Milwaukee Bucks have not slowed down yet.
They're they're first in the East. I think they have.
Ah, seven game uh, lied orders.
Oh, but we have beat Milwaukee Bucks this year.
I think that's something that goes down to coach him.
Coaching really allow allows us to play even better than what our roster says we are.
Our coaching is allowing us tohave all stars of Jimmy Butler and Bam on a bio wouldn't likely will make the All Star team and ma'am on a bio.
Honestly, it could be a candidate for the league's most improved player.
Uh, he's out here averaging the double double this year, and I think that all goes down to the coaching.
The willpower as well as him just being able to play it as he's been playing.
Appreciate our thumbs up, makes you follow me hockey mom.
And when you think about the Wizards team that we had to play last night, they're not no scrubs.
You know that Thomas wasn't it all started one playing time in his career due to injuries, and others feel things are off court days.
He's had some struggles here on the court, but I think he'll come back.
I don't know if it'll be with this with this team.
I think it's which team is just really just trying to find anybody to kind of fill in for this John Ward.
So John Wall comes back.
But Bradley Bill is a monster, man.
It was extremely hard to guard him last night when he dies.
Well, rhythm, because in that third quarter, he really started to turn it up.
Um, rarely Bill is it is a great score, a phenomenal passer.
He is somebody who I think will be in this league for a long time as long as he stays healthy.
Um, I hate that he's kind of like wasting his time in in in the Washington Wizards organization because, honestly, they're not doing much with some other than painting.
And I know he wanted that paycheck, but I really would have wanted him to go to a different team to compete at a high level for championships, or at least for the playoffs.
I mean, there's a few teams that I thought he could have been going to.
I honestly want him at Miami.
I know we wouldn't have been able to afford him.
Nor do we have the, uh, I guess, the personnel to fit for Bradley Room.
But I mean, he he's a phenomenal player, man.
Him coupled with Jimmy Butler and Kendrick, none of those guys would have been amazing.
And I think, uh, that's something that we're gonna see.
Um, in the future.
I mean, we never know what what rather build my end of Don't know what we might end up me.
And it was, uh, support in the Miami organization.
Um, I do think that this this Miami organization has eight has a few weaknesses.
And I think one of those is like I said, it's hard for us to keep a lead if we can't keep the lead and go into the fourth quarter confident that we can sustain this lead.
That's gonna be a problem.
Especially we get to the playoffs and we're starting to play better teams on a consistent basis.
That's when the issue.
Like I said, I think this Friday when we play the Clippers, that's gonna be a testament to see what's gonna happen.
We don't know that Paul, George and Colin will both be planned, but if they are playing, that's gonna be one defensive one hell of a defensive game.
What we're going to be have to make open shots and make big shots, but also defend with the world.
One guy that I'm really excited for this can't that, you know, starting to come off the bench and playing very, very valuable minutes again.
I know he was dealing with some injuries at one point in time, but since he's been in a lot of, I mean, he's been one of those guys who has just been a big plate threat.
Last night when we had to go to overtime, he was the one who hit him.
Big three Thio get us to overtime.
It was like 1 15 1 18 He had a big 43 splash 1 18 1 18 He's doing a really good job coming off that ***** and playing well for this he organization and I do think that the more that we go into.
The more that we go into the red end of this regular season, you're going to see James Johnson playing a big role with us, and I used to kid and joke.
But I really feel like James Johnson is like a poor man's LeBron James.
Like he's a good player, man.
Like he he may not be as explosive as LeBron are, you know, as agile and everything, but he makes plays.
He can back you down and you could shoot the ball pretty well.
Um, and he's a facilitator, man.
When he gets the ball going down the court on a fast break, he knows what to do it, and he knows how to get guys open.
Sometimes he does make a few mistakes.
Were turning the ball over or Officer 1000 stuff like that.
But nothing That's something that he continued working on his game.
Um, And then, you know, I think the acquisition over the, you know, with the trade that we have for her sign Meyers.
Leonard is playing well for us, and I think him, Duncan Robertson and those guys like we have ah, really solid team in order to really make some noise in the East.
I think we might need to make a trade.
And I feel like we might end up having to trade justise Winslow.
I think I think we need another big I'm somebody who who is, uh, maybe like a taller power forward that can guard guys like Johannes and letter and also maybe a baby I love ma'am on a bio man.
He can pretty he's a good defender, but it gets it gets a little tough for him when he's going up against taller and more, uh, aggressive centers like oil.
And be joking, you know, because they're guys that can just shoot over the top of, uh, shoot over the top of man Bam! You know, I think he's one of those guys who he does get settled on defense and because of the 23 zone, it allows him to play defense a lot better on a lot of those bigs.
And I do think that he will concede to be one of the great, uh, centers that we've had in the league.
As long as he concedes to play well, he does have to start finding his shot a little more last night.
I think he struggled with his shot a lot.
Um, in the first half your heads, you points.
You know, he had about five rebounds, but I would like to see him be a more aggressive going to the basket and go on to the room.
There's a lot of times where you know, the big giving them open shots.
You gotta be a little more aggressive about taking no size and taking it to the rim.
He is good, withdrawn contact.
He gets a lot of foul calls and is able to, you know, complete those at the free throw line way.
One thing that we definitely need to work on, which we did do really well last night.
It's free throw line. Um, free throws.
Mr. Classman last night.
And I'm like, Jimmy, come on way.
Gotta hit those.
We've got to get better at the free throw line there.
You're free shots.
All you have to do is just sit there and just shoot open shot.
I just need you to make sure that you guys hit those because we're gonna need those down the stretch, especially going into the playoffs.
Although I'm so excited about this Miami team, I think it's time for us to get back to the way that we were way had the weight and his will is Maybe had LeBron.
We may not be as good as the T 2012 2030 you know, But we've got a really, really solid team, and I think we have a team that is going to be able to compete at a high level every night, day in and day out.
And we have, Ah, nice little stretch at home were 21 and right now we're undefeated in overtime games this season.
I just don't want us to have to keep going to overtime games because there's there's more toe the record season than just all overtime games.
Um, overall, man, I mean, I'm excited about this.
They want to mention this with this team one more time.
I think the it's what comes up, I think the Wizards really need to figure out organizationally what they're going to do with Jimmy living with John Wall and rather do I do like the tandem.
They haven't been on the court together in almost two years.
I think it's time to go home from John Wall.
I know you're still paying him all this money off his contract, but I think it's time to move on.
I think that war would be a great asset in a different team.
Um, I just don't know if that will be the Washington Wizards, as long as you guys keep paying them.
Could probably stay there and not be at the games or rehabbing.
But hopefully he comes back strong next season.
We'll see the hot water that I love enough, um, other than that man, make sure you follow us.
