I actually think they lose this one. It fits the playoff template.

The SAS/Memphis game was the best NBA game I've watched this year, hands down. Leonard was MJ-esque in the 4th.

I'm a tad biased but I think Draymond is the best player on the Warriors. He's their MVP.

Really disappointing that despite losing handily for most of the game (save for one stretch) Hoiberg won't put Zel in. They need another playmaker on the floor. Not sure what the issue is.

If MVP just went to the best player in the NBA every year, he'd certainly have a lot more of them. Even when advanced numbers say somebody else is having/has had a better season than LeBron, everyone knows that he's been the best player in the league since probably his 3rd year or so (that's totally off the top of my head so I could be off by a season or two), and he will probably continue to be the best for at least another 2-3 years.

I remember when Deron Williams vs. Chris Paul was an actual debate. I suspect Deron is not as dedicated to maintaining his physical conditioning as many other top tier players are. Or perhaps he had an injury I'm forgetting.

Semi surprised at tonight's results.

I thought for sure Toronto would give Cleveland a game. And certainly expected Houston to be more competitive.

Dead on collision course for GSW and Cleveland. I look forward to that. I still think Dubs in 5 max.

If LeBron can push this GS team to even six, it would be impressive as hell. I don't know that much about NBA history, so my opinion doesn't mean very much, but I think this GS team is the best team of all time. If they sweep the whole playoffs, which they definitely could do, that won't be a hot take.

I don't see them sweeping the whole playoffs. I also don't think we can call them the best of all time. Lots of alphas on that team. They still haven't been healthy enough to learn to play together properly.

That said I don't think there's a team in the league that can challenge them, even firing at 70%. 95 Bulls? sure. 86 Celts? maybe. 89 Pistons? Maybe. Lebron and Kyrie show? Nah.

Wasn't Golden State the greatest team ever last year?

I don't really pay attention to the NBA until the playoffs, but it seems the Cavs struggles were greatly exaggerated.

These playoffs have still been hard to pay attention to because they lack luster. GS is just blowing teams out and penciled in for the finals and won't face teams the caliber of past Spurs and Thunder. Cavs are doing the same on the other side. Perhaps the Celtics will give them a test, otherwise this year a fan could skip not only the entire regular season but all the playoffs as well and start with the finals we knew was going to happen before the season started.

The current state of the NBA explained succinctly. Not much drama.....on the court.
Haven't seen much of GS yet, but Lebron, love him or hate him, is on a mission since the playoffs started and has his team following along.
Far cry from when he played Robin to Dwade's Batman.

I'm enjoying it. I wish some of the guys hadn't gotten hurt - Lowry, Griffin, Parker, etc. The East is not very competitive though I think if the Wizards can beat Boston they might be able to take Cleveland to 6.

If GSW is going to lose a game in this series it will be tonight.

Also imagine if Curry was healthy.

Also imagine if they weren't spent from chasing a meaningless regular season record.

Also imagine if their best all around player wasn't suspended for a pivotal game in the series.

Cavs sweep, looking awesome right now.

Wizards go on a 26-0 run in the 3rd quarter, crush Boston to tie the series at 2-2.

Houston responds and the series with the Spurs is now 2-2. I think Houston is gonna pull off the upset.

I bet we're going to see Wizards-Cavs and Rockets-Dubs.
