  • alright crunch time here on the jump.

  • Kristaps Porzingis dropping 27 Onley missed three shots last night as the Mavs picked up a quality win over the Pacers.

  • Zack was that performance last night, a blip on the radar, radar or start of a trend.

  • No start of a trend.

  • And I think the most interesting thing is it happened with Porzingis.

  • Is Dallas is starting center.

  • That's where their ceiling is highest.

  • That's where his ceiling is highest.

  • That's what they're most dangerous.

  • So it be interesting to see how fast Rick Carlisle just leans all the way in that direction because that is the apex version of the Mavericks.

  • I agree with you.

  • This is a trend.

  • Rachel.

  • We remember back in the bubble, Luca and Pro Zynga's both was averaging about 30 points a game.

  • They will, arguably the best duo pro Zynga's get back in shape.

  • He got a few games under his belt.

  • I see him having a couple of 30 point nights in the near future.

  • Zach is right.

  • That center position is good for him, especially with Luca and the way he's capable of stretching the floor and mixing it up and rolling to the basket.

  • I wanna move on to the Atlanta dream, guys, because the saga it may be over soon.

  • They're close to being sold.

  • A W MBA spokesperson confirmed to our Ramona Shelburne.

  • This was first reported by The Atlanta Journal Constitution.

  • We all remember right former Senator Kelly Loeffler, part of the ownership group, and the league's players, including those on her own team openly opposing her.

  • Perk.

  • Is this the best resolution for all parties involved?

  • Yes, yes, and one thing I've learned is to not miss with the W MBA.

  • Those women do not play any games.

  • They stand on the front line, and if they believe in something, they go in full force and kudos to them.

  • Once again, let me give them their flowers for always standing up for what they believe in their standing up for was right.

  • Shout out to the W N B A.

  • What the short answer is, Yes, this is the best solution for everyone involved, and perk is right.

  • The W N b a change history.

  • Just think about that for a minute.

  • W MBA players changed history, period.

  • End of sentence.

  • It's really amazing.

  • It really is.

  • You know, when they started wearing those shirts that said Vote Warnock, his name recognizability, they pull for that.

  • Of course, is you guys know was super low.

  • They started wearing the shirts, The conversation started on national television and, of course, um, tireless work from Reverend Warnock himself and all of the people in Georgia supporting him.

  • Stacey Abrams, Get out!

  • The vote initiative really made a huge difference and now is changing the balance of the Senate.

  • I do want to get back to the Atlanta Dream.

  • Specifically, though, there has been some consternation of this over this over the past year.

  • The MBA, the W MBA.

  • There's not room in the bylaws for forcing an owner to sell unless you have this crazy majority vote of rest of ownership, which is tough to get because owners will say, Well, next time it could be me with Donald Sterling.

  • There was eventually a deal worked out with Donald Sterling's wife, Shelly Andi.

  • In this case, there was a lot of pressure put on by the MBA, the W N B.

  • A and people around the team, and that seems to be doing the trick here, so it is complicated.

  • It is nuanced.

  • It's not something that the league can just snap its fingers and do.

  • And yet here is the resolution that so many people wanted so again shouts to the W N B A players.

  • All right, let's get back to the MBA.

  • Issuing a memo yesterday reaffirming the rules that require teams to remain on their half of the court in pregame and halftime warmups.

  • Limits physical contact.

  • Toe Onley include elbows or fist bumps, especially between opposing teams.

  • High fives, hugs, handshakes not allowed.

  • Nor are extended postgame conversations.

  • And the league is now going to Sickert, using security at mid court to enforce this, which I mean, I can't I don't even know what to think about a security guard getting in the way of some of these players.

  • Perk.

  • What do you think of the league taking this step?

  • Well, look, I understand the league trying to protect the players, but listen, this is ridiculous, because basketball is a physical contact sport.

  • Guys, they're gonna be rubbing and touching each other all throughout the game.

  • By the way, you make your question, Rachel.

  • Are they sanitizing the basketballs?

  • Because the basketballs are exchanging hands, you know, throughout the game and then the layer blind.

  • But I'm saying I understand you're trying to protect it, but this is Yeah, right.

  • But this is not gonna change anything.

  • God, it's a natural reaction.

  • I think what it shows is, frankly, the idea that we thought maybe we knew or someone MBA was confident that you couldn't transmit the virus on the court that players aren't within 15 players are within 6 ft of each other for 15 cumulative minutes in the game.

  • I mean it, Z, we just don't know.

  • We don't know that.

  • And some of these actions that the n b A is taking is saying, Hey, we don't know exactly how it's transmitted in these arenas, how it's transmitted with these aerosol particles all in there, we don't know.

  • So we're gonna just try and limit any interaction that we can limit.

  • That's not the game.

  • And I get that.

  • It looks silly, and it is it is kind of silly, and, you know, if we're going to this length, I think you have to consider what did we really sign on for here?

  • But I don't blame them for trying toe limit.

  • Whatever they can limit.

  • That's not basketball.

  • Alright, our league, past game of the night guys tonight.

  • Easy choice.

  • Given the fact our producers are not allowed to pick a national TV game, that only leaves them one game eligible on the slate.

  • So Knicks Warriors, come on down your our choice for lead pass game of the night.

  • Golden State fit that West New York eighth out.

  • Eso Zach Lowe.

  • Which of these teams is more likely to make the playoffs this season?

  • Give us your quick pig warriors.

  • Even in the West, I'm picking warriors even with the play in possibilities in the East on picking warriors.

  • Good pig.

  • Zack.

  • I'm going with the Warriors to thanks for watching ESPN on YouTube.

  • For live streaming sports and premium content.
