Re: 2016 NBA Playoffs Thread

27 pts down at Half, what do you talk about in the locker room?

"Anyone know a good place for dinner?"

I'm sure they will close the gap as the Warriors might just go into cruise control in the second half but I don't see them coming all the way back.

We (Rockets fans) didn't believe we had a chance. This team sucks.

Wow Harden didn't shoot a single foul shot? He's toast if he's not getting the calls.

And how did the Hawks only win by one point? I couldn't take the commentating anymore and shut it off in the third but the Celtics couldn't hit the broadside of a barn.

If Curry's ankle is a lingering issue, you can forget about the Warriors repeating.

Well if he's not hurt now just give Beverley a couple more games...

Re: 2016 NBA Playoffs Thread

Frustrating to see the Celtics fight back from that far down and then lose it on a few key possessions. Stealing game 1 would've been huge.

Marcus Smart's foul at the end was baffling and stupid. They are down 3 with over 35 seconds left. Why foul? Just play defense and hope for the best.

Maybe he lost track of the math since it looked pretty bleak in the last couple minutes. A sloppy turnover, two missed FTs by Isaiah--little things that might've made a difference.

And now Avery Bradley is out for the series. Another one-and-done for Boston.

Cleveland.

It's time to LeBron prove what he can do with ball.

Re: 2016 NBA Playoffs Thread

Games have been a little more interesting tonight.

Curious to see how the Warriors look without Curry (for an entire game )

Wow, that was close, think it's good.

Edit: Ooh, maybe not, lights are on with his hands on ball, Dallas wins.

Both games so far swing tonight.

GS so far looking like they would not have too much trouble sweeping the Rockets even without Curry. Don't think they could get away with that in R2 though.

I can see them having difficulties against the Clippers with a hobbled Curry.

Re: 2016 NBA Playoffs Thread

The Rockets almost threw the game away last night on their last 2 inbounds. The last inbound was close to being a steal that would have resulted in a wide open layup...

What was up with Harden pushing the big guy away who was coming over to congratulate him after the shot?

What's the point of the NBA reviewing calls like the end of the Rockets game?
