Jimmy Butler delivers an all-timer to will the Heat to a 3-3 tie in the series. We discuss how he did it, what the strategic fulcrums of the game were, how Boston failed in the final minutes, and the outlook for Game 7. Plus where Butler’s game ranks in recent history.

Plus, some analysis on the Lakers’ hiring of Darvin Ham as head coach.

Dunc'd On: DAL/GSW Game 5; DAL Offseason; Free Agency Rumors

May 28, 2022 12:06 PM

An appreciation of what it took for Golden State to get back to the Finals, and where Dallas fell short.  Then, a look at the Mavs’ offseason, including where they most need to upgrade, the Jalen Brunson question and the tax issues it causes, and more.

Finally, worrying news regarding the Nets, Zach LaVine may not be a lock to return to the Bulls, Tim Connelly moving to the Wolves, the effect of the All-NBA teams, Russell Westbrook potentially remaining a Laker next year, and congratulations to one of our favorite colleagues.

Dunc'd On: PHX, PHI, and MIL Offseasons

May 28, 2022 12:04 PM

Three vanquished second-round teams with high expectations are the subject of our first offseason outlooks.

Phoenix has the complicated restricted free agency of Deandre Ayton, but also needs in the backcourt and on the wing.

Philly has the complicated free agency of James Harden, but also needs in the backcourt and on the wing.

Milwaukee has the complicated free agencies of Pat Connaughton and Bobby Portis (work with me here) but also need in the backcourt and on the wing.

Dunc'd On: MIL/BOS Game 7 and DAL/PHX Game 7; DAL/GSW Series Outlook

May 16, 2022 1:32 PM

In perhaps the most surprising individual game result in NBA history, the Dallas Mavericks throttle the Suns and “arrive” in the Conference Finals.

What will that series look like, as the Warriors try to guard Luka Doncic and the Mavs try to guard the Warriors’ dynamic guards?

The Celtics outlasted the Bucks behind the biggest 3-point shooting disparity in NBA playoff history.

The Bucks and Celtics submit another classic, as Milwaukee rallies from down 14 in the 4th to stun the Celtics. How did they do it, and how big of favorites are they in the series going forward?

The Memphis Grizzlies served notice that this series is not over, running Golden State out of the gym before halftime and flirting with the largest victory in NBA playoff history. Do they have a chance to make history in this series?

Dunc'd On: Free Agent SGs and SFs 2022

Zach LaVine, Bradley Beal, and James Harden highlight a star-studded free agent shooting guard class. How much will they get, and where might they get it?

There is also decent depth at the shooting guard position, but small forward has very few options at all for arguably the most important position in the league.

Dunc'd On: GSW/MEM and MIL/BOS Game 1; DAL/PHX and PHI/MIA Outlooks

How Golden State stole one on the road, and who actually played better in Game 1 in Memphis. We go long on a classic Game 1 and discuss whether the Grizz can recover.

Milwaukee throttled Boston in Game 1, but Nate thinks they actually weren’t outplayed that badly.

A look ahead to what we think could be a classic Dallas/Phoenix series, and an injury-marred and confusing matchup between Miami and Philly.
