So, is it just me or does Luka look fat? 

He’s always had conditioning issues. I was actually thinking he looks really slow - and that’s probably exacerbated by his injury - but can still get to the spot he wants for his shot.

Tough loss for Dallas. Could have won this and finished it off Monday at home. Now this feels like a seven game series. Dallas had no answer for Gobert on the boards.

I can't believe this Nets- Celtics series. The Nets play with no urgency.

I hope the Jokic brothers go into the Golden State locker room after the game.  The Warriors are fucking dirty pieces of shit.

Ben Simmons is such a vagina. He needs to be cut and go away already.

They just play so dirty and chippy. Then they whine when anyone pushes back

Nothing about the 3 by Curry was a foul….he shot it floating to the side and just fell in coordinated fashion. Great skill, no foul. 

One of the main reasons I struggle to watch.

Be like a baseball hitter taking an elongated swing before contact and drawing contact with the catcher to get on base…..only worse because the shooter flailing doesn’t even get touched.

Trae Young and KD have had a bad 2 weeks for their image. KD running out of time to prove his all time status. Trae trying to be a villain and all nba type…but folding.

So recapping the weekend and putting the next couple days into play:

Miami back at home up 3-1 on Tuesday, probably puts the series away. As Lalely said, Trae has had a miserable series. Jimmy Butler has been outstanding.

Boston win tomorrow at Brooklyn and be the only sweep of the playoffs. Idk why, I just could see Brooklyn winning and Kyrie going off. 

Chicago looks done. Milwaukee can finish them off at home on Wednesday. Milwaukee won games three and four - both in Chicago - by 30 and 24 points. Woof.

Philadelphia could finish off Toronto Monday night at home. Embiid has a torn thumb ligament that will require offseason surgery, but for now he's playing through it. Something to watch.

The west has gotten very interesting. 

Despite losing today, Golden State IMO has looked the best, in part because they remain healthy. Denver eeked one out today, and claim they think Golden State is beatable. I'm not convinced. Golden State can put them away at home Wednesday. 

Game 5 of Utah - Dallas Monday night in Dallas, series tied at two. I thought Dallas really let that one go the other day and might regret it. They have got some great performances out of players not named Doncic. 

Memphis and Minnesota has been a roller coaster. Ja Morant has looked very pedastrian the last two games. You know who hasn't and has been sneaky fun to watch? 30th overall pick Desmond Bane averaging 23 points on 44% 3pg through this series. That series, tied at 2, will resume Tuesday in Memphis.

New Orleans and Phoenix is crazy. Is New Orleans really going to pull this upset off? Series tied at two, goes back to Phoenix Tuesday night. Chris Paul had a miserable game tonight. A game seven of this series would be a lot of fun and I think we get it.

These refs are fucking trash. Every call goes to the Nets. The foul out on Tatum was crazy.


The shit they call a foul is senseless.


Big monster whiny babies out there.



Boston was up 8….I would’ve left Tatum out longer. Oh well, hope Celtics win game 5 by 60

It’s a good thing Kyrie went ham for 3 games in June 2016…

I’ve hardly watched and grew up in the 80’s loving the Lakers and despising (yet respecting) the Celtics….I’ve never rooted for the Celtics but the Durant/Kyrie team I irrationally hate, like they still had Harden.

I kinda like this Celtics team. Tatum may go on to become the greatest Duke product (I know he was there like 20 min but still)

I heard Netflix is making a documentary on the Tim Dohaghy scandal. After listening to the podcast and reading the book the NBA is fucked when this becomes mainstream.

So who does Utah keep? Anyone? Gotta think Mitchell is the only one worth it, but he may not be in the mood for a rebuild — and Utah is assuredly tearing it all down.
