  • It's crunch time here on the jump.

  • Karl Anthony Towns made two threes in a win last night to become the Wolves franchise leader in threes made surpassing Andrew Wiggins.

  • Minnesota has snapped a four game losing streak with their win over the Raptors yesterday.

  • So, Matt, are you surprised that Town's already has this franchise record at 25?

  • Obviously, congrats to towns, Um, because later, because we're in a three ball era.

  • But it's not saying much when your center is their all time leading three point shooter.

  • Thank you.

  • Our shocked at this news.

  • Okay, can I get a guard somewhere in this discussion?

  • Where's my man, Gugliotta?

  • On this list?

  • I was blown away by this by a lot of Wow.

  • Congrats.

  • The cattle for Wally Szczerbiak.

  • Where are you?

  • I know you're on the Knicks broadcast somewhere, but anyway, all right, according to our agent Ward Yanovsky, Knicks center.

  • Speaking of the Knicks, Mitchell Robinson will undergo surgery on his fractured right hand and expected to miss 4 to 6 weeks.

  • So Clinton The Knicks are hovering around that 7 to 10 area in the East standings.

  • Can they stay afloat there without Robinson Nerlens know how come on down.

  • I think they have a pretty good shot.

  • I like the fact that they're in the rial playoff discussion.

  • Not like the extended one.

  • All I hear from New York fans is the Knicks I this year, so I'm gonna continue to believe them to be high.

  • At this point.

  • I really like Mitchell Robinson in the dynamic dynamic he brings to that team.

  • Hopefully, they could stay afloat, and I would love to see them make the playoffs this year.

  • So let's hope for the best.

  • Alright, Next fourth quarter of the Grizzlies Kings game last night, she Maisie met to dunked on Jonas Valanciunas here, wrapped his legs around him afterwards, which JV clearly didn't like.

  • A minute later, Valanciunas goes up in dunks and wraps his legs around Cory Joseph.

  • Now, after the game, John Moran said he told JV to do what he just did there.

  • What, you saw him do there because he said met, uh, met whose dunk was disrespectful.

  • So Matt was the initial dunk by committee met to disrespectful the initial Doug was a good Doug.

  • I think the fact that the ladies got wrapped around Valanciunas happens, But the fact that Valanciunas tried to take him off the rent of throwing down back in the day, that would have been a fight.

  • But obviously the league is a lot different today.

  • Yeah, and that's exactly why I think this is just dangerous.

  • More so than it is disrespectful.

  • You don't wanna get tangled up like that because somebody could end up getting hurt over something that wasn't even meant to be all that I want to say this I want to give Matt Barnes a U C l A Bruin props for giving a USC Trojan props on this show.

  • We clap it up for this man.

  • Alright?

  • Rivalry or not, he still knows how to respect the game.

  • You know what I mean?

  • Hey, toe my credit.

  • With all due respect, I didn't I didn't know he went to S C s o.

  • Now you change your opinion.

  • E still like the duck like All right, fair enough.

  • Alright.

  • It's time for our league pass game of the night.

  • Seven games on the slate with two of those on NBA TV And after careful deliberation, our producers went with Sixers Jazz the best record in the East meets the best record in the West and down in the block.

  • M V P candidate Joel and Be will go toe to toe with two time defensive player of the year.

  • The Deep point.

  • Rudy Gobert.

  • So, Matt, what is the most intriguing part of this matchup tonight?

  • The barbecue chicken, as shock would say, a zoo good as defender is go Bear is there's not a person in the world that can stop and be when he wants to be and beat.

  • And this season, Doc Rivers has been playing at M V P caliber level.

  • So I expect this to be no different tonight.

  • Great team matchup.

  • But I expect and be to dominate uh, tonight.

  • I agree.

  • This is one of those games where we talked about whether or not Joel can keep focus against the best opponents in the league.

  • This is a game where that has to happen.

  • Speaking of shock controls and all those guys, So go Bury might be out here posterized other dudes.

  • I don't think so.

  • Well, is gonna want that to happen to him today, you know, I know the Sixers have lost a couple of games here on the West Coast swing.

  • But that should be expected, right?

  • Like you go out west, you're gonna lose some games.

  • I've just been really impressed, Matt with Ben Simmons and joy and beads chemistry like I saw Joel Embiid on the block.

  • You know, find a cutting Ben Simmons to the basket against Portland the other night on Thursday night.

  • That chemistry between those two guys has got even better, Which is impressive to see.

  • Well, I think you know, a lot of credit goes to Doc Rivers.

  • We had him on all the smoke a few weeks ago and we spoke to that exactly.

  • You know, he encourages guys to be the best of what they are.

  • He didn't come in telling Ben you need to start shooting threes.

  • He said, Been continue to do what you're good at.

  • He wanted to put him be down on the block and let that team know that he is the go to guy, which that team knows now.

  • But he's also getting better at passing out of double teams and and and really passing period out of the blocks, so their chemistry continuing to grow is important.

  • Tobias Harris is important to that team.

  • And I really liked what Doc has these guys doing out there.

  • Better coaching means Benson is a better basketball player, which makes that team a better squad.

  • Yeah, no doubt about it.

  • Now, how What's their ceiling Real quick.

  • We got 30 seconds here.

  • What is their ceiling?

  • Matt Barnes.

  • I think the East is open.

  • To be honest with you, I think the East is open.

  • I'm looking for Brooklyn to kick their chemistry and and and possibly make it.

  • But I think that Eastern Conference wide open, they could possibly make it to the finals If you thought you could get to the Eastern Conference finals already, The reason why you want Doc Rivers is that he get out, Coach.

  • A guy like Steve Nash, I think the finals a realistic for the stickers.

  • Yeah, I do, too.

  • Man, I I really feel like this team.

  • Look, I still feel like they may be one player short, and I mean, like a role player, right?

  • Every team is one player short to you, George.

  • Come on.

  • Just 33 and give me another three.

  • And he got to go with Danny with Danny Green out there.

  • I would feel good about Trevor.

  • Trevor Rees a sitting at home in l A.

  • Waiting on somebody a great three and D guy.

  • There you go.
