    Rondo has a fractured thumb, so don't expect to see him back any time soon.

    Poor Bulls. Poor Dwyane. How sad.

    Finally...after all these years of rooting for my Bucks...after ALL these years...their is finally...FINALLY a break in the clouds. My goodness, I haven't been feeling this good since the days of Ray Allen back in the early 2000s.

    Honestly, it's about time, and I feel that I deserve it considering I've never had anything to really root for in terms of basketball pertaining to the Bucks but now, I'm good. If Jabari does not get injured anymore (admitting it that I'm super worried that he may be another Penny or whatever) then our future is going to be bright. Please...just let me see in the future One Championship ring with my Bucks...Lord knows how long we people in Wisconsin have waited.

    I hope we beat Toronto and go on to put a number on the Cavs, would love to see that match up.

    That's a bad injury news for the Bulls. Good news for us. Rondo and Jimmy has been tearing us up.

    Some boston fans getting cocky again and thanking the basketball gods that rondo got injured. Really desperate there.

    Thought the playoffs didn't matter for boston because they are in rebuild mode?

    What better time than now.....

    Boston isn't rebuilding. They spent all that money on Horford and were the 1st seed, this is who they are. Whoever they draft will be the last piece of the puzzle.

    As expected boston going in hard but it was unacceptable on the awful performance from butler. Team has no hustle no effort plus 0 assist in a quarter.

    Thomas starts smirking again. It will be erased on the next games. Still calling this bulls in 6.

    Man for all that talk about Harden having snipers and shooters they are sucking eggs at the three in this series, funny how that has not been mentioned so far.

    Harden had to go for the three at that point Robertson knows how to give Harden trouble so he could have gotten a deflection if tried to go to the rack.

    I think a step back 2 was the best option cause he was overplaying the perimeter shot so a fake drive into step back was my to go move there. He kinda did the same from 3 but he didn't sell the drive. Had he taken a few more steps into the hoop he coulda had a more open shot imo

    I still got the Bulls winning in 5. I figured we'd win at least 1 game after dropping both games at home and then Bulls would finish burying us. However, if we're somehow able to beat the Bulls on both road games then I can see this turning into a 7 game series.

    Sounds good but if they did tie it he was fucked, he was sitting on five and Bev had already fouled out so Anderson would be forced to guard WB the rest of the way meanwhile Harden would have probably picked up his six on lazy defense like he did most of the other ones (outside of #5 the offensive one.)

    You got more faith in them than I do lol. I just never know with them. It could be over in 5, or go a full 7.
    The only consistent thing in our favor will be Lopez controlling the boards.

    Yeah no way the Clippers bring him back after this, they're blowing it up after this year so it wouldn't of mattered anyway.

    Harden shouldn't get MVP because he's a flopping phaget. If your entire offense is based around flopping you don't deserve MVP.

    I remember a year ago around this time I said DeRozan wasn't ready to be a number one offensive option. Definitely not the case now. He is almost single-handedly keeping the Raptors alive in this game.

    Lowry on the other hand.....

  • just_primejust_prime Most Definitely. Joined: Posts: 1,661
    More Raptors stepped up in the second half to support DeRozan, especially Norman Powell. He is a fan favorite for so many reasons. Hopefully Carroll and Patterson can get it going somehow and this group can send these Bucks home in six. It won't be easy, but it is possible.

    Bradley Beal is trash.

    Also I would be shocked if Griffin or Millsap don't end up down here. PF is wide open for the Heat.
  • DarkGeneralDarkGeneral Joined: Posts: 4,274
    I'm definitely not rooting for Blake to end up with the heat. I think his peak will be over in another year since he's already lost some of his athleticism due to recurring injuries. Millsap on the other hand would be a nice fit however. I wouldn't put it past Pat to land a big free agent like Jimmy Butler or Paul George to pair up with Whiteside.

    Millsap is a max player so you do have to consider who you might lose.

    That block on the layup was huge. Then the one-two punch of Marc and Conley.

    Big Spain FTW... Grizz found a way to still steal this one besides being horrible with the ball tonight. Too many turnovers but I'll take the series tie

    Great game. Feel bad for Leonard because he was playing out of his mind.

    Memphis earned that win. Great shot by Marc Gasol

    Kerr's health hasn't been good for awhile, he really didn't want Luke to leave as he thought eventually Luke would have to take over. Honestly you do wonder if Luke should have waited it out.

    watching indiana makes me sad. there's a lot of talent on this team, and they are underdelivering because they just aren't organized. this could actually be a series if they knew what the hell they were doing on both ends of the floor.

    would they be able to beat the cavs? maybe not. but cavs aren't playing clean at all and are still going to sweep the pacers.

    literally every possession for the pacers you can't believe they are getting the shot that they want (but somehow are going in), and defensively, you can't believe pacers are trying to force the type of shots the cavs are getting... its all open 3s and layups and the pacers have no scheme to prevent them.

    Nah Luke is his own man and L.A. was prudent to snatch him up early before he could get any real offers. Any self respecting man wants to captain his own ship.
