Manage episode 326205080 series 2862024
On today's episode, Jason gets the party started by sharing his thoughts on the Boston Celtics' impressive come-from-behind victory over the Brooklyn Nets to take a 2-0 series lead. Kevin Durant had arguably the worst playoff game of his NBA career, and it's got our fearless leader wondering aloud whether or not this is the beginning of the end for KD. Either way, it's hard to envision the Nets winning 4 of the next 5 games going up against a defensive juggernaut like the Celtics. Speaking of the NBA, Milwaukee Bucks All-Star Khris Middleton became the latest player to succumb to injury during this postseason. Is it possible that a summer of Olympic basketball is the biggest reason behind this sudden rash of injuries? Lest we forget, Middleton, Devin Booker and Luka Doncic all played in the Olympics before the start of the NBA season. Later, 95.7 The Game San Francisco radio host Mark Willard swings by to discuss Deebo Samuel’s trade demand, how the exploding wide receiver market has shaped the ongoing negotiations between Samuel and San Francisco, the emergence of Jordan Poole as a third offensive star for the Golden State Warriors, whether or not the young guys like Poole and Jonathan Kuminga could extend the Warriors’ championship window beyond the prime windows of Steph Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green, and much more! Finally, Jason closes the show with a Thursday night NBA Playoffs edition of the Best Bet.
