  1. Wisconsin Badgers Thread | Thank you, JT23

    Coan was basically competent but unspectacular against USF. ANY/A of 7.62. Biggest thing is he is going to have to hit those shots down the field (if he hits just one of them, his numbers look great). He was very successful in the intermediate area, so it wasn't just a checkdown fest either. He played better than I thought he would, but there's still some clear shortcomings.

    Last year, the "Air Raid" attack made sense (skipping the midfield entirely when possible because Spurs didn't have a midfield), but Spurs should be quite good this season when you look at who they have. I do have to wonder how much the contract issues with a good chunk of the squad is playing into some of the squad selection decisions, but once they have a healthy Dele and Ndombele, the midfield will be plenty good enough to warrant a return to more "traditional" Poch set-ups. Whether or not that'll happen remains to be seen, but the player quality is certainly there, which it really wasn't last season.

    Eh. His slash line looks great, but when you adjust it for park and league it's a 97 wRC+. AAA offense this year is nuts.

    It's not really a secret in the hitting world that the Brewers organization needs a massive overhaul of their entire hitting development structure and have needed to do so for close to a decade. The mechanics they teach are....outdated to say the least.

    Corey Ray's swing has always been pretty gross and it doesn't look like he's gonna be anything more than maybe a 5th OF.

    oh god no DDV is more of a combo guard and Sterling has basically been benched in the playoffs due to decision making errors.
  7. Bucks shot 25% from 3 (season average: 35.3%), Raptors shot 36% from 3 (season average: 36.6%). TOR shot basically as you'd expect from 3, MIL was -12 points from expected, and MIL still won by 8. That is not good news for Toronto... at all. More rigorous analysis than my back-of-the-napkin math says the Bucks should have been expected to win by 15 if not for the slumpy shooting: https://twitter.com/JacobEGoldstein/status/1128857197041991680

    Bucks won and covered the spread despite being shooting below expected numbers. MIL was -12 points from 3 from where we'd expect and still won by 8. TOR shot basically as you'd expect (36%) from 3. With season average 3-point shooting, it's a blowout win. Not good news for TOR that they couldn't take advantage of the bad shooting game from MIL. EDIT: More rigorous analysis shows a 15 point Bucks win if not for slumpy shooting: https://twitter.com/JacobEGoldstein/status/1128857197041991680

    There are rumors that Liverpool want Ajax's Matthjias de Ligt, which would make sense given their transfer history.

    After further research, my assertion here just didn't make sense.

    Khris Middleton monthly splits (triple slash, TS%, and per 36 stats) October (7 games) .495/.549/.871, 69%, 24.4 points, 6.6 rebounds, 4.6 assists November (14 games) .431/.350/.932, 57%, 20.4 points, 6.6 rebounds, 4.8 assists December (12 games) .385/.299/.811, 49%, 18.2 points, 7.2 rebounds, 4.6 assists January (15 games) .473/.385/.756, 56%, 19 points, 6.4 rebounds, 5.1 assists February (10 games) .413/.389/.795, 53%, 20.6 points, 8.1 rebounds, 5.1 assists March (15 games) .449/.375/.846, 56%, 22.8 points, 7.6 rebounds, 5.3 assists April pre-playoffs (4 games) .478/.357/.857, 58.5%, 32.8 points, 4.9 rebounds, 5.7 assists Playoffs (9 games) .422/.467/.923, 59.2%, 21 points, 6.6 rebounds, 5 assists So he had a bad December? Every other month is pretty minimal in terms of his volatility. If you can show me with any meaningful sample that he's any more volatile than any other player that relies on 3-point shooting I would love to see it. Tack on that he is a switchable defender able to play at the highest level, has added the PU3 to his game with great success, and can be the primary ball handler in non-Giannis post-season lineups? I will take that, yes please.

    Wild that the Bucks got to use an elimination game as a "knock the rust off" game for Malcolm Brogdon.

    This week of Champions League was unbelievable. Awesome from a neutral perspective.
