This is a surprisingly compelling silent film. Should almost be in black and white.

He's not far outside the top 20, mostly a product of his shooting percentages being down in the seeding games.

I don't think Utah wants to face the Clippers, so at some point they may have to get more serious about winning.

That ranking was in part on the logic that the Suns probably would be cautious with Booker's minutes because they were such a long shot to make the playoffs. Obviously, that's not how they approached things.

Keeping their top-20 protected pick might also tilt the equation.

The other Phoenix players have combined for 2.2 WARP. The other Washington players have combined for -0.6.

Those specific wins, yes. I think he deserves a lot of credit for the way this group has overachieved so far after losing so many rotation players.

Obviously there's some important context here with these teams resting players in the last two games, but under Jacque Vaughn the Nets have now beaten the Lakers, the Clippers and the Bucks.
