Boston has a very easy path.  Their theme should be Five-Five-Five-Five. They will be rested.  If KP comes back think it’s their year.

Wanna guess which series will draw more fans watching? Knicks / Celtics or the NBA Finals?

Which reminds me of the slog that they now make the NBA finals as far as the length of time between games.

Yeah, I saw they were tied at nine early and that the hurricanes were up 3-1 going into the third. Unexpected results since.

Bet on Minny but really have no idea who wins this game seven. Nice to see the Knicks lose although the injury to Brunson was unfortunate.

No Knicks and Celtics.  Indy not as banged up but the Cs should breeze.

Pretty epic collapse by Denver tonight. I only caught the last five minutes but their shooting was awful.

Mavs are going to punish the Wolves.   Luka will eat that defense alive.   Wolves offense doesn’t have the firepower to keep up

heck of a finish last night in Boston. I thought Indy had them with about 20 seconds left, but alas, it wasn't meant to be.

Luka a cold blooded killer.   He is easily the best player in the league

I was wrong, Mavs are going to win. Luka and Tatum are polar opposites in the last 5 minutes of a game

I've got a ritual with a friend of mine where he texts me at the start of the 4th quarter and blasts Tatum for disappearing, hogging the ball, and taking poor shots. More often than not, either Tatum explodes or Brown / White take over. The one thing the Celts have is so many guys who can carry a team, including Holliday and, of course, Porzingis if healthy. But their easiest path is when Tatum and Brown do show up.

It seems like every time I watch the Celtics trying to comeback or close out a close game, it’s Tatum taking a terrible step back jumper and missing badly

Does he disappear and hog the ball at the same time?

disappearing in terms of hitting shots and generating offense, hogging the ball in terms of staying outside, dribbling, not looking to pass.

He’s not Michael Jordan. He’s still just 26.

I actually like Tatum. He took a step back this year to integrate Porzingis and Holliday, and White has stepped up. this is a balanced team, but  the NBA seems to be a league where a star takes over more than a balanced team beating a star.

It's Kyrie I don't want to see win. Ever again.
