    I am lillard fanboy from now on , that shot was craaaaazzzyy, the guts to just shot fron 40 feet on last possesion. If portland play like that I think they should win with Denver/spurs in semis.

    I think I still favor Nuggets over Portland provided they can dispatch the Spurs. I expect Jokic to make Kanter unplayable with his versatile offense and if so, I see Portland having massive problems without a suitable center as Nurkic is injured. OKC didn't have that same as they don't really have a versatile offensive big on their roster to abuse the glaring flaws in Kanter's game.

    But well, I would be happy either way, as I like these 2 teams more than the other remaining teams in the West.

    Goddamn this Blazers-Nuggets series is going to be badass. Jokic and Dame are unconscious right now

    Yes and people forget about this series, the east and warriors-rockets(with refs and calls) are all the talk. McCollum needs to wake up if portland wants to win some games, lillard alone is not enough.

    I am really disappointed in Bucks I hope they win tonight and keep the series going, the first game was very bad if you look at this, that they are first seed.

    Giannis is going to have to step-up to Hero-Tier for the Bucks to take this Celtics team (+/-, of course, isn't a be-all, end-all statistic and it's skewed by playing time... but your personal-team GOAT can't be playing a -24). Khris Middleton is gonna have to play better too.

    Pat Connaughton on the second team not taking every fucking shot and missing them will help the Bucks...

    What a weird game. Don’t think I’ve ever seen Kyrie not break 10 points in a playoff game.

    Oh well Celtics did what they had to, hopefully they’ll play better at home.

    They'll definitely play better at home. I expect a big game from Kyrie after this stinker.

    The thing is, where do we go now? Kyrie's gone now. We don't have enough talent without him to do anything. We're fucked.

    Need this Sac pick to be 2 or 3 or its over for this iteration of Celtic's basketball.

    Build around Smart and the two Jays, let them blossom hopefully into stars. Maybe Hayward comes back as his 2017/18 self after a full off season of recovery and strengthening. Honestly I could still see Kyrie signing back but who knows.

    Long shot dream is resign Kyrie and trade Hayward for Durant (Durant has to want it). Never resign Rozier, let Morris walk. Draft young role players.

    Who knows tbh, I don’t want AD tho. Feels like even more drama waiting to happen.

    0:3 for Boston from when P. Pierce told on ESPN that series is done and Celtics have it in the bag, etc :) I liked him when he played but on television he is a joke, first the Wade comments now this, I won't comment on I.Thomas video even. He is so not objective, he shouldn't be on national TV.

    So about this. Gloops
    --- Post automerged ---
    Is this the worst basketball Steph Curry has ever played in his life? Is he hurt?

    If I remember correctly, he has a dislocated finger in his shooting hand. Must affect him a bit. Still playing way below his high standards overall though.

    If someone doesn’t know about game of zones I recommend to catch it up, but if someone watches it check the newest episode it’s super lit one of the best after some mediocre last ones.
    Link:
    About other topic with KD injury it’s the best chance for rockets to win the series and maybe even the title. Also both other series going for 7 games, this year playoffs are one of the most entertaining one with a lot of stories, drama and even matches and surprises because maybe the old saying that you play 82 games and warriors win the title won’t happen this year.

    EDIT:
    And it's over, Dubs shows that they can win without KD, Curry and Klay shows that they are two splash brother and they won title, 73 games and conference final(1-3 never forget) and lost nba final (3-1 never forget). It's somehow makes me happy, it shows if KD leaves offseason they are still favorites/one of the candidate to win whole thing. Also can't wait for Sunday two games 7 baby - game 7 baby :)

    Well that Kawhi buzzer-beater was a very fitting ending to the Raptors-Sixers series. Kawhi absolutely carried the Raptors in that series. Rest of that team really didn't deserve to win, but well, having a top 3 player in your team really makes it all easier.

    Yet both game 7 where interesting and kawhaii was monster as was cj and joker in other one. The buzzer beater was epic especially this bounces had me on the edge of my seat. Both teams where criticezed for choking in the polayoffs yet somehow this season they did not choke. Conferences finals look nice whatever will happen we will have curry in the final, we just have to see if this is seth or steph.

    It was fixed, league is giving pelicans no 1 pick because AD is leaving - it's funny how Zion is furious that he has to go to pelicans - team that had 7 years to make a team around AD and didn't now will be try the same with him (few years of carrier wasted), Knicks probably would be the same as is a another organization that is trash, I was hoping for Hawks and duo Zion - Young. AD will leave them anyway I think. Team that tanked mid season - after AD trade request and didn't play their star to tank more and so he won't get injured and his value lowers, is awarded no 1 pick....
