Getting underway today!

Watching Leonard is going to be a treat. Even though the Raptors have had a decent run the last few years, I haven't gone into a post-season quite this excited. Gasol has been a difference maker, too.

The emergency appendectomy for OG Anunoby is scary and not sure where his minutes go. Lin, maybe?

Regardless, really excited for this run.

that game was just.... too much. I lost my voice, lost my mind. I can't imagine what it would have been like to be in the building. There haven't been many shots like that, under those circumstances, with that sort of bouncing drama, that I've ever seen.

That ball had no business going in.

The only reason it did was because Kawhi had to put it up so high to get it over Embiid that it wasn't as flat as his 3-pointers usually are. And he got the bounce.

#4bounces

Even watching replays, I was surprised when it went in.

Their defense was incredible all game, except a single stretch. The shots weren't falling.

And I've no real expectation to take down Milwaukee. But if I don't come away with a series win vs. the Bucks and I get a conference finals and *that* shot, I'll take it.

as for Dwayne Casey... I was not a fan of his. This is a new team and while there are similarities to the old regime, it's a very different team and pace. There is no Valenciunas standing there, trying to back his way in to another bad shot - where offensive sets go to die. There was no Demar putting his head down and trying to kill teams from midrange. Or Demar and JV going 2-man while the rest of the team tries to find a place on the floor to go.

It was stale, old basketball. I was watching the game pass by the Raptors.

I think Nurse is a decent coach, not great. Not in the top tier in the NBA at all. But I'll also take him over what Casey trotted out there 7 days out of the week.

what a night....
Sorry........but every time I read, “that ball had no business going in” it cracks me up & I have a great laugh 😂 👍🍺

Great semis.

Can't wait for these conference finals! Not sure who I am pulling for yet but Giannis vs. Durant might be one for the ages....too bad they'll put Green on him.

Love this shot of Jurassic Park outside the stadium... you hear the "awww..." as it bounces - most thinking out - and then it drops...

That was cool Oye. Hope the Mavs can get back in the playoffs next year. Luka and Porzingas should play well together. Mavs have lots of money to spend as well. Maybe add Klay? Middleton from the Bucks? Vucevic from Orlando as well. Same agent as Luka. Rumors out there Mavs going after Kemba Walker as well but not sure how he and Luka would work together.

Of course, Mavs have a 6% chance tonight get #1 pick but it isn't going to happen. Mavs have the worst luck in lottery history. They have never improved their slot in Draft History. Meaning if they had 7th before the lottery, they got worse or stayed the same after the lottery.

Also, they just had the dress rehearsal for the draft. Now Mavs have 0 shot since they got lucky during rehearsal.

So am I the only one who doesn't hate the Warriors? I guess I get the being tired of them winning and the KD signing was annoying, but they play really good basketball (I prefer them without KD). Especially compared to the Rockets who just pretty much let Harden dominate the ball.
The warriors almost always have a high number of assists because of their ball movement. Curry and Thompson are constantly running around off ball screens to get open shots. Screen and rolls, give and goes, I think they're fun to watch.
Unless they're playing the Pels, of course.

I love watching the Dubs play and I agree with your post
