I can't speculate what could happen in Spurs v Rockets series, but one thing I'm noticing is that Rockets are battle-tested. In regular season they were able to grind out narrow wins with or without Harden's scoring. In such a tough matchup against Thunder, 8-man unit was the star and narrative continues. This is all D'Antoni. A team not afraid of shooting 50 threes in a game, and ballsy enough to make 22 of them. If they make it here in 2nd round, it is gonna be an interesting playoffs rest of the way.

They've been a very pleasant surprise thus far, especially with how they completely trampled the Spurs tonight.

With that being said, The Warriors will get past them with EASE in my opinion.  I think they'd only scratch a single win against the Warriors if they are to make it to the Conference Finals.

Maybe time to give warriors credit as being one of the very best teams of the last 50 years.

 

Think i heard they did over the last 3 years what no team has ever done over a 3 consecutive season period.

Which when you think about laker teams and bulls teams and celtics teams and spurs teams, is actually scratch your head amazing

Praying for  1. Some Cohesion (Ill fitting parts with young bucks, new guys, and those playing for next contracts may muck things up all season) 2. Better Coaching, No More Tanking (Last season was more of the latter but not sure how much of the former we can count on. Walton with something to prove this season as much as any Laker player) 3. Rookie Watch (Hoping Lonzo outshines his daddy (ROTY??), and Kuzma finds minutes and makes a push for all rook 2nd team)

READY FOR SEASON!!!

I have a confession to make....I have not even watched one full playoff game this season. Caught bits and pieces of a couple of series here and there and that's it.

 

Basically have no ffs to give.

Man John Wall has been otherworldly in these playoffs, he was coming out a couple years back before hurting his wrist in the playoffs. This postseason he has been playing at a level that's been scary, he's even knocking down jumpshots now.

IT with one of the all time greatest playoff performances ever... 53 points with 29 coming in the fourth and OT. Might be the greatest in Celtic history

I gotta say tho, how do you let a guy continually dominate you especially on a team like Boston with no other all star? I mean even in the regular season you'd start seeing traps and double teams, just unfathomable.

That was unreal.

How many 50 point playoff games did kobe even get?


Praying for  1. Some Cohesion (Ill fitting parts with young bucks, new guys, and those playing for next contracts may muck things up all season) 2. Better Coaching, No More Tanking (Last season was more of the latter but not sure how much of the former we can count on. Walton with something to prove this season as much as any Laker player) 3. Rookie Watch (Hoping Lonzo outshines his daddy (ROTY??), and Kuzma finds minutes and makes a push for all rook 2nd team)

The Mighty IT. 

 

He is fun to watch. Amazing to watch a guy my height drop 50+ in a playoff game. Sucks that he is on the Celtics, but I do like to watch him do his thing.
