    Good game

    Portland starting to get contributions elsewhere.

    Portlands supporting cast finally shows up just in time for Lillard and McCollum to go ice cold

    Funny how that works

    Portland hanging in there still. Lillard and McCollum need to have video game like numbers to compete in this series.

    Portland might be a good landing spot for Melo.

    Probably part with Crabbe, one or two of their first rounders this year, and whatever other marginal player they have making too much money

    It's remarkable how Giannis got T'd up for pumping his fist after stuffing DeRozan yet Draymond Green hasn't been ejected or even T'd up in this game.

    Not that I think he should but one guy showed a hint of competitive emotion and got ringed up...Draymond Green is acting like a bad guy wrestler with a theatric for every little thing and I guess it's dray being dray

    Mr. S£im Citrus That's right, I said it! Staff Member Contributor

    Yeah, but Green has #Character and #Culture, though.

    Oh boy! It gets worse! Leave it to the most boring run n gun team ever in the 2016-2017 Rockets to sport black road uniforms at home in game 1

    OKC are also wearing their crappy alternates but atleast they didn't wear their home uniforms. That would've been too much.


    Just Bush league IMO

    Clippers/Jazz , Warriors/Blazers, and Cavs/Pacers only ones taking this seriously

    Steven Adams just did a Brad Miller on Devin Harris-esque hit job on Patrick Beverley.

    Now that's playoff basketball

    I now see why Boogie felt that Patrick Beverley needed a punch in the stomach.

    Beverley is the perfect example of a player you hate playing against but would take him anytime of the day on your team. That Adams screen was a thing of beauty.

    Lowry+DeRozan
    or
    Westbrook+Oladipo

    Textbook example of what a screen is all about when you're playing with the big dogs.

    Really? For me it's a foul. Even a nasty one. Lowering the shoulder is not sport. That makes all the difference.

    Not going to lie, I enjoyed watching the Celtics lose. Is there anyone in the East who can challenge GS or SA or even Houston?

    Brad Miller's screen? That's the go-to reference, these days? People don't remember Webber's "We ****ing mean business!" screen on John Stockton, anymore? :(

    Kevin Love has the combo meter charged all the way up right now.

    Is Kristen Ledlow taller than Tyronn Lue?

    Of course I remember that...but Brad Miller laid out Devin Harris twice for extra reference.

    Boy! How about that forehead on Kyle Anderson?

    ......and he was moving.

    It should have been a foul.

    Grizz looking like they don't even belong in the first two games. Maybe things change once they get to the Grind House.

    Listening to popovich ... He is by far the best coach in the league.

    Well, someone chucked them clean out of that game...
  27. That's why he is called fathead around the Spurs fans. :)

    To be honest, I give Spurs a shot to beat Warriors in the playoffs, they have the depth to adjust gameplan every single half/game, they can go big with Lee/Gasol/Aldridge rotation, they can get some guys who stretch the floor and help Kawhi to get a free lane to the hoop, so he can make his layup or if double team comes kick out to really dangerous three-point shooters in Bertans/Gasol. Big question mark for their success for me is the play of Danny Green and Tony Parker, if Green can hit his few three-pointers it's big for them because defensively he can lock down Klay or Steph, or Tony Parker is playing in the series vs Dubs, like he is right now for the last few games playing watch out, he still can do whatever he wants in the paint, because other than Javale McGee Warriors have no Rim Protection.

    It would be interesting to see if Jazz can beat Clippers in the 1st round, then maybe Jazz can at least make it a 6 game series vs Warriors, because Clippers will easily be beaten if they play the Warriors in the 2nd round, they are in their heads. :D

    Paul George toying with the Cavs, 19 points in the second quarter. Indiana scores 72 points at the half.

    Did Milwaukee change their court design for the playoffs? I don't remember it looking like that
