Re: Playoff time... where Lebron at?

Nets and Indiana definitely have the potential to pull off the upset wins in the 1st round, for the East. DRuss has been absolutely killing it this year, they're a fun team to watch.

Well just like that, @KING SANTA ;, LUKE WALTON gets a job in Sacramento. Should have just said yesterday that I thought he would attain that job because I did. It's a nearly perfect fit.

Well... Embiid looks banged up all to hell, and Ben Simmons still cannot hit free throws; he cannot shoot. Jimmy Butler carrying the Sixers and they still had a terrible overall game against Brooklyn. Have to give the Nets credit: they lack for star power but they run their offense smoothly and the Sixers had major problems covering with rotations. Expecting at least some sort of bounce-back game from Philly because some of it was explainable due to poor shooting from generally reliable shooters but they also have players whose flaws remain glaring, namely Simmons.





Was watching much of the game and so many jeers from Philly fans toward the Sixers and particularly Simmons... whose shooting remains... Will not even go there right now, actually.





You hate to hear fans boo their own team and their own team's players specifically... But it is Philadelphia... And then you see this... What the hell?




Anyway, more importantly:

GO WARRIORS

DJ Augustin is the MAN.

Kawhi Leonard on the other hand isn't with that airball.

True. It doesn't help that Lowry was outplayed by the other team's starting and backup PG.

I think the Raptors will win this series, but they don't have any stars besides Kawhi.

Patrick Beverley's goal is to get KD ejected and suspended and it's working. Like I said to Deso, KD needs to chill the fuck out before he gets suspended from a must win game, like against the Rockets.

This is true. All the more reason to take on the Rockets or Jazz in Round 2 rather than Round 3. That is a bit of a joke. Seriously. Someone sew his mouth shut. Although the first pair of techs on both players seemed weak, which is a shame. A little bit of jawing, 85% of which was from Pat Bev... It's the playoffs. Just let it go.



15 huge rebounds while amassing 38 points and 7 assists. Superlative!

was a huge protagonist in the biggest runs, including that crazed 14-3 run to close out the first half.

I understand why the Clippers were frustrated with the refs for a few moments in the game near the end of that first half; they thought the Warriors got away with a foul, and then they were called for one against which they believed was wrongful. But you cannot let such a sequence of questionable reffing on both ends of the floor over the course of about 20 seconds send you out of your game while ROARACLE is screaming and the Warriors' Death Lineup is out there looking to send you reeling back to the locker room. It is like trying to deal with a "Five Alarm Fire" by helicoptering in gallons upon gallons of gasoline to drop on it. One perspicuous non-call to me seemed that Kevon Looney got away with what looked like a moving screen for Curry (clearly having learned from the master Andrew Bogut). was definitely fouled on the one made three-pointer where he spent a good second or two complaining on the floor. Refs seemed largely fair, though, but a little tight with some technical calls. Clippers approached one rough little sequence to them in just about the worst possible way.

Speaking of LOONEY:



Let us spend a moment discussing how magnificent Kevon Looney is. I took a 15-minute walk during halftime but almost all I could think is of how much he has progressed and developed since he joined the Golden State Warriors. Turnaround jumpers now?!?

(Looney was +29 for his first 12 minutes.)

Meanwhile, Andre Iguodala remains The Master of Stripping.

Hope that is not misinterpreted.



80 fewer games.

So two things to clean up aside from turning a new leaf on not receiving any technical fouls until the NBA Finals, let's say...

1. Turnovers. Clean it the hell up, fellas. A lot of exuberance out there, but even with that, there were some that were inexplicably awful. Stay focused. Or else needs to go R. Lee Ermey on these dudes and have them march around with the ball in place of their rifles (which would metaphorically stand as surrogates for something else). 20+ TOs is far too many. Even with the 31 assists, which were of course sweet.

2. So yeah we saw what makes this Clippers team this Clippers team. Their high pick-and-roll action with Montrezl Harrel and Lou Williams is potent and the Warriors struggled against it at times, such as in that woeful first half of the second quarter where the bench truly laid an egg. Love them all but a lineup of Quinn Cook, D. Cousins (he doesn't want to be called "Boogie" so I'm trying to change my ways even if by the time I have retrained myself he will be on some other team in the midsummer) and Shaun Livingston is a lineup that is going to be roughed up by that Clippers P&R action. And Williams deserves credit: some view him as something of a Poor Man's James Harden, in that he is arguably more about drawing fouls by initiating contact than scoring via field goal but he was demonstrating his considerable play-making abilities Saturday night. He also scored quite a bit, and did indeed draw some key fouls which all helped keep the Clippers in the game for lengthy stretches.

deserves final big mention because the Warriors--who played almost impeccable defense, particularly the starters and/or Hampton Five as they are called with Iguodala in and the Center out--struggled offensively in those first six minutes of regulation. This was chiefly due to turnovers but even on a bunch of other possessions that led to field goal attempts the offense was but was often sputtering. Curry would end up having a terrific first quarter--just check out the points and assists totals--but it was Green, who the Clippers consciously and sagaciously sagged off of, who was in many ways the offensive star of the first quarter for the Warriors. This is mainly because no one expects him to be that in 2019 but the man is feeling healthier than he has in a long time and his three-point averaged has steadily climbed since the All-Star break. He amassed 13 points in that first quarter, which was a huge contribution. The Warriors knew that Curry and Durant would be swarmed on so they set up a host of plays with Green as the finisher, and they mostly worked out flawlessly, with the Warriors using Curry and Green's shared play-making ability from split action and penetration from the elbow, and it seemed to stun the Clippers, but to give the Clippers credit they stuck with it and lived with the consequences. Green would finally wrap up the game with 17 points, and goes to show you, the Warriors won by 17. Coincidence? Ask Rod Serling. @Donnie ;

One final small point: is the greatest human being alive outside of LC/my mother/other residents of Croftville, blah blah blah I ruined this shtick by being too serious.

So this post is long and the servers are acting a bit suspect, so this is it. Goodnight, or good morning, or good afternoon, wherever you are.

Can't believe the Clippers came back from down 31 and won.

That was one nasty collapse for GSW and that was one great comeback for LAC.
