The amount of damage they do in isolation is just silly, even without KD on the floor. It's just one momentum killing shot after another, especially in the 4th quarter when they start protecting the ball.

Are they seriously gonna hold a full strength Clippers to 100?

I'm not enjoying this.

Everyone thought Kyrie and Harden will have a hard time playing together... But they been the opposite of that. Both their efficiency has improved a lot since Harden joining. Both posting 50%fg / 40%3fg for the season.

In Febuary so far
Harden - 52% fg and 42% 3fg
Kyrie - 53% fg and 44% 3fg

yeah pretty shocked how good they are even without KD. but I also think they like playing with each other and are willing tp pick their spots. Chemistry is looking great. maybe they struggle when things get a little tough? but they are also great iso players that they can just get points on command.

Its sickening to watch since i cant stand all three of those clowns lol

The big question is, can they continue with this efficiency all season long. When later in the season legs get tired and playing heavier minutes in the playoffs. But they have the luxury to sit those guys as long as they want. Specially if they can continue to win games with just 1 or 2 of the big 3.

Is that really saying much? Kyrie and KD are both max players.

That so easily would've been an and one by Kawhi to win it. Instead the game is decided by a flop. Incredible

Either way, (bleep) both those teams.

Can they compete with this?


PG.KCP
SG.Kuzma
SF.LeBron
PF.Harrell
C.Davis

in a fourth Q?

That team would terrorize them in the paint. If deandre guards Davis, he pulls him out of the paint, then you have KYRIE and HARDEN and a skinny Durant to block out Bron, Kuz, Harrell, GL

The game will be mugged down. LeBron will kill that team man. Kyrie, Harden and even Durant at this point are not good defenders. The only guy I hope has an off series is joe harris and his 50+ shooting from 3.

Makes sense in theory, but have you watched our offense over the last 20 games?

If Drummond goes to the Nets they will win it all unless Irving pulls some BS crap that throws the team off, a lot of pressure is on Pelinka to make moves, let’s see what he does.

Plays like that should be automatic challenged... Harden was allowed to ride Kawhi then get called for offensive foul?

Bro...do you even watch games anymore? Players are dragging it.

LeBron has been complaining about playing even at the allstar game, he has said he hates playing without people in the stands and I understand it.

We are not pumped up. We know everyteam will go 100% at us.

You know last game Jimmy said "It will be great to beat the champions"....

This is their motivation every night. We don't have one in regular season.

We are too good. Hell we are 2nd in the west at 22-9.

We lost the last few games because we didn't have Dennis or AD.

We are too damn good. At the begining of the season i stopped watching because I knew the result of every game...Davis and Bron are just too impossing. Remember shaq and kobe? These 2 do the same thing. They are just too big and too skilled for anyone.


It is a whole different story dealing with Bron when things matter. Pretty much every play he makes comes off with some physical pain since he attacks the basket every play then kicks it out, it also takes alot of energy to run P&R every play. But when you tell bron okay bron you gotta beat this team 4 times to move up on the playoffs is a different animal.

"We built different"

so AD on KD and Lebron on Harden and KCP on Irving? I think we would have issues stopping them, mainly Irving and KD.

I like this lineup more

DS
Wes
Lebron
Kuz
AD

shooters and DS vs Kyrie, Wes vs Harden and Kuz, Lebron, AD can take turns on KD?

Cavs needed Draymond to be suspended, Curry to not be 100% and Bogut to get injured on top of the monster effort by LeBron and Kyrie to win that Finals.

Don't count on all those variables against the Nets, and don't count on LeBron to bring that kind of performance ever again.

It's hard to imagine KD not being needed to win this game. I'd say the Clippers suffered not having PG's length late in the game (minute restriction), but he was a TO machine in the 2nd half.

No, Lebron won't be leading both team in all counting stats again.

6 TO vs 16. That was the game.

Nets are the favorites currently.
