Podcast: NBA Report - The Amazing Luka Doncic, Giannis gets 50 (11-26-19)

November 26th, 2019 · Comments

2019-11-26-nbareport.jpg

On this week's DITCOW "NBA Report", Chris and Dave run down some of the hottest peformances of the week.  First we look at the NBA's proposed schedule changes, a mid-season tournament, re-seeding in the playoffs, and a play in tournament at the end of the regular season.  Later we check on Luka Doncic, Western Conference Player of the Week, who averaged 37 points a game over the last seven days.  Spencer Dinwiddie gets the Player of the Week honor for the East, and meanwhile, Giannis gets his best performance of the season in an exciting win over the Utah Jazz on Monday night.  Giannis goes for 50 points with some crucial shots near the end of the Bucks' thriller in Milwaukee.  Later, we look at teams on the rebound: the surging Pelicans, the suddenly interesting Wizards, and even the Bucks themselves who overcame a slow start with an eight game winning streak.

On this edition of the "report," we added a bonus College Football segment to supplement the football audience.  Chris and Dave run down the authenticity of Ohio State's standing at Number 1 atop the CFP rankings, plus a look at whether LSU can beat Georgia in the forthcoming SEC Championship game.  We also speculate as to whether Michigan could indeed pull the big upset in Ann Arbor over said Ohio State this weekend.

Podcast: NBA Report - Kawhi’s Load of Management, Surprise Starts (11-12-19)

November 12th, 2019 · Comments

2019-11-12-nbareport.jpg

DITCOW presents our first NBA Report of the 2019-20 Season with Chris in Georgia.  This week, we share some perspective on Kawhi Leonard's recent "load management" in key national television games vs the Bucks and Jazz, and how the Clippers still came out ahead in the games thereafter.  Is the Load Management part of a trend or is it a unique situation for Kawhi.  Chris and Dave explain why there might be a little of both realms in play - it isn't a huge trend, but Kawhi has engaged in it perhaps more than others.  Later, we look at some remarkable surprise starts for seemingly bad teams in the NBA and cover why the league as a whole is much more competitive than past years.  Then, a recap of this year's rookie class after three weeks of play, and a recap of second year player Trae Young's fantastic start for the Hawks on this action-packed NBA Report.
