At half time this Warriors/76ers game looked like it was going to be competitive lol


They're not even trying right now. They got the championship locked up for this year and potentially next year as well.

Dang it. Boston almost had their winning streak snapped. They called an offensive foul on Tatum as they were trying to foul him and he cleared space with his elbow. (Boston up 1, with the ball, shot clock ended).

Stupid Toronto couldn't take advantage. They were hyping up their ball movement during the offseason, but they still fall into the same o' iso offense that they're famous for. Disappointing.

The Knicks are killing the Cavs. LeBron made a remark, one I thought was taken out of context. I also thought the comment was intended for Phil Jackson. I won't count them out until I see how Isaiah Thomas pans out.

I don't get why LeBron would think Kanter would be afraid of him the same dude who's currently feuding with the President of Turkey.

Cavs need a new coach. They are getting beat down because they run no offense just ISO.

Kanter wasn't scaaard. LBJ did push him out of his way though.

Simmons has 5 dunks at the half, Philly doesn't take it weak to the hole often. Wonder where that fire is on the Lakers.

Of course but I was more thinking that he knows his isn't the best laying it up and instead goes with the higher percentage shot. BI and others on this team would rather try to use the glass at every opportunity.

I looked at the Wolves box score. Laughed at the minutes distribution.

Embid complaining about a lack of calls is hilarious, he might be the most created superstar in the league

We could have used Lou this year. Especially since Magic traded down #28 we got for him.

No thanks. 28 and not having Lou to pound the ball to end the season was more than enough for him. Trading him was a tank move that also nabbed us a pick which was leveraged into Hart and Bryant. More than happy with that. Lou can score, but hes a sieve on D and he tends to disappear when teams actually focus on him, like when he disappears in the playoffs basically every year.

that two handed slam after blowing by Dirk was ridiculous. He explodes like D Rose used to, except he is a bit smaller and seems to land much better. He reminds me of Steve Francis a bit.

I'm not a believer in conspiracy but the way this game is being officiated is ridiculous. The refs are trying to give this one to the Celtics
