Apricot's In-Game Notes
These were a bit more incoherent than usual thanks to the wild nature of the ending. Not sorry.
That Looney tip in was like a delicate pool shot
It’s helpful/painful to remember how bad Looney looked in his first couple of years
After all this time watching Steph, I still involuntarily blurt out stuff like “oh man that’s ridiculous!!”
Yeah I personally think that Harden 30+ PTS streak looks amazing out of context but will look worse and worse over time. Sorry, I still believe FG% counts for something. Also, not constantly cheating and ruining the game.
We are all ants in a meaningless cosmos
PHI beautifully countered our 2-3 zone, then the surprise double on Embiid. Kind of amazing that Steph can walk down court and chuck in a long one to claw back everything
Q4.3.45. Oooh, Looney and Steph are getting a bit smoother on the pitch back play. Steph had an impossible layup to make but got bailed out with a foul
I count any game that’s within one possession with 2:00 left as a Random Ending. We are very on track for that.
Okay we’re ahead enough that it would really hurt to blow this
I just blurted out OH MY GOD after the last 3. It still hasn’t gotten old and I hope it never will.
I think the angle I saw showed it was off Looney’s hand last
STILL MATHEMATICALLY BLOWABLE
Apricot post-Steph move noises update: that last one from the logo I just let out a huge groan and smiled at the sky
If Steph is not high on your MVP ballot, I consider you a complete ignoramus
Obviously the lack of a butt pad has been holding back Steph all these years. The gauntlet is complete
