Review of Giddey by Hashtag Basketball

A very comprehensive breakdown of Josh Giddey's skill-set for the NBA. This seems to have been written before he was drafted so his actual performances have not been taken into account.

IMO, Giddey is performing better than this review suggested, but I am no expert.

I have not seen any of his games. I do have Kayo now, but no OKC games there(?), it seems.

How can I catch some of his games without another subscription?

As of Nov 4 Giddey moved from #7 to #5 on the NBA Rookie ladder. He is not ranked 1

When will he be handed the keys to run the Boomers' offense?

SBS Viceland and On demand - Dallas Mavericks vs OKC - Monday 03 January 2022 is the only OKC game at this stage.

Thanks for that.

Hate to say it but I think today was his poorest game yet. Didn't seem comfortable. He had 4 turnovers but had at least 2 more that somehow the Spurs coughed up so Giddey probably didn't get credited with.
His defence was also a bit poor. He seems a tad slow off the mark and got beaten twice (that I noticed) by his man on backdoor cuts. I'm hoping the hype isn't getting to him.

I'm really rooting for him though. Such a relief to have a tall Aussie point guard that everyone is talking about for the right reasons.....

Tough ask for such a young player that's used to one game per week, plus all the travel between games, yes not his best today but they got the win.

Hey RobT. Guaranteed method to watch every OKC game is to have an account with a betting site. Suggest Sportbet. Go to BetLive and Watch Game Live. You usually miss the first couple of minutes and have to watch the game while it is on but works a treat. Fxxk Kayo!!

Thank you too, Perthworld. That's exactly what I want to avoid. Will have to be satisfied with 'news' ATM. Maybe a 'contribution' bet, where I put in say, $10, leave it there, and watch to my heart's content?

I'll look in to it. Thanks to you both, again.

Dropped to 4th. Ouch!

"It wasn't Josh Giddey’s best game, but he scored 7 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists, but he continues to gain praise from the NBA world for his unique skill set and excellent playmaking abilities."

[and only 75+ games left. We do this all season long and we'll be round the bend by finals]!

You can try using a VPN connection to India and then check the cost of NBA League Pass.
Pretty sure it is 1/20th if the Aust cost.

AUD 19 via India.

It would be the easiest and cheapest way, although as someone else mentioned above you can only watch live games via Sportsbet (and other bookmakers such as TAB) which means no replays.

That game against the Spurs was easily his worst so far. Hopefully it doesn't impact his confidence. He looked like he was without his usual mojo.

2023 World Cup I'd imagine. Delly wont be starting then (or necessarily on the team, who knows). Not too mamy other options unless Simmons pops up

" I'm hoping the hype isn't getting to him."

A 19 year old rookie is going to have some sort of learning curve. He'll be just fine.

@RobT

I also have a good site for all NBA games, but I don't think that I am allowed to post the link. I think it violates the rules. The site also has access to Euro league games, CBA games, PBA games, FIBA games, you name it! The only downside is that it is a bit delayed, 1-2 min but nevertheless great HD quality!

Total Sportek is good for that sort of thing.
