The Jay Graves Report

Paul George disappears down the stretch and CJ Miles had every right to take the shot! “C’mon Bruh”

Y’all know the drill bruh…I sat in the cut to find out what the reaction was goin’ to be after the Pacers/Cavs Game 1 to see what boyz were thinkin’, even the players themselves. The Pacers ran up to North East Ohio on Saturday to check the temperature of the Cavs and found out that they were simply luke warm and beatable. However, the team with the Philistine who’s heart was pumpin’ for 48 minutes escaped with a 109-108 advantage.

Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! In order for the Pacers to win games in this series the main horse has to play like a monster for 48 minutes not for 27!! If you looked at the box score at the end of the game you’d say, “Paul George went to work on these boyz because it shows that ole boy put up 29 points, 7 rebounds and threw 5 dimes!! That’s a monster game right?

Sure, it would be if the dun had balled for the entire game to get the 29 points bruh! However, he didn’t have but one field goal in the final 21 minutes of the freakin’ game!! That’s called doin’ what a boyz typically does in big ball games!! Don’t act like you don’t remember Game 5 in Toronto last year when the dun had 37 points after three quarters and finished the game with 39?  He scored two freakin’ points down the stretch as the Pacers watched the ice cream melt.

So it blows my mind when ole boy gets into the post-game presser and says that he needs to take the last shot. Well…don’t get me to lyin’, here’s what he said playa,  “I talked to CJ about it. In situations like that, I gotta get the last shot. CJ took it upon himself. I’m confident with all of my guys taking shots. That’s not the issue. In that situation, I need the ball.”

Here’s my problem with a boy sayin’ that. I’ve covered this team all season and as a matter of fact, I’ve covered every stitch of Paul George’s career. He’s a helluva ball player that can’t ever get the last shot. For some reason he gets jammed up and can’t get the shot off on most occasions. So if the Cavs new that from watchin’ film and understandin’ his tendencies then why wouldn’t C.J. Miles already know that?

I’ve got no problem with C.J. takin’ the shot after the dun passes it to him with 4 seconds left. Why would he try to get it back to him when Paul rarely ever gets the last shot off. Miles is a shooter and he had a good look at the basket. He just missed the shot.

But hold on a second playboy, we wouldn’t be talkin’ about this foolishness this mornin’ if Paul George hadn’t disappeared for 21 minutes down the stretch!! One field goal in the final 21 minutes in the playoffs on the road bruh? Stop with this foolishness! There’s nothin’ else to say!!

In order to win playoff games the top dawg has to show up every night and play the ENTIRE game! Not 27 minutes of it. Especially, when you’re the 7th seed playin’ the defendin’ champs with the best player in the world gettin’ buckets any kind of way he wants to. Stop me when I start lyin’!

Playas Thesaurus: 

1) Dun: noun – the person in question, dude, guy, etc. It’s whoever I’m talkin’ about and its non-gender specific.

The G is excluded from the endings of all words because the G is near and dear to my heart because I’m from “The G” which is Gary, Indiana. So I only use the G when I’m talkin’ about “The G!”
