Milwaukee looks pretty good
I couldn't stay awake for game one. I don't think I'm especially tired or sleepy, so I'm thinking maybe just a boring @$$ game?
Exciting finish to a not-so-great game. Those Bucks players are huge and Lopez was shooting like Durant. I doubt that happens again. If/when the Warriors get passed Portland, they will need larger bodies like Durant and Cousins. I think that the last time the teams played Durant didn't score that well but his defense/rim protection was one of the keys to the game. During the regular season the Warriors' defense was average, middle of the pack. I guess the switch flipped because their defense has turned into a buzz saw.
The Warriors have proven you don't need larger bodies, you just run the big ones off of the floor. It's been successful enough that it's changed the entire NBA. Besides, they do have a few larger guys they could throw out there to absorb some minutes, if need be.
This offseason should be a whole lot of fun...almost can't wait for the Finals to be over, with all this drama that will surely ensue!
They got too big. It was fun for awhile though.
Portland really blew it tonight. At least they gave it a great shot......but the 2nd half where they guarded the Arc and double-teamed Curry leaving the paint wide open was bad. They should have rotated coverage like the Rockets did to try to counteract that......but no. And how ironic that a great defenive play shuts the door on game 2. Wow.
One of my wife’s outside counsel firms is taking her to the game on Saturday, courtside seats. She’s never been to a playoff game before. Would’ve been nice if it was tied up, but it will still crazy at Moda. Blazers should be playing with desperation.
That was a bad loss for the Blazers. They needed a spilt .. Blazers will be fortunate to get one win at home.
Yeah, I thought before the series that they’d get one at home. But Lillard is clearly hurt so now I’m not so sure. It could easily be a sweep.
They will be on Saturday.
True.. but I think / hope that Portland gets a win at home. They have overcome a lot this year, with injuries and such.
I see a split in Portland...and the close out game in Oakland in Game 5. Great win tonight for the Warriors...Portland had the game and let it go.
Lillard is injured?
There's talk that he hasn't been the same since the 4 OT game in round 1.
yep. you can see that he's not been right for a few games and that crash last night didn't do him any favors.
The NBA playoffs currently has more compelling later rounds than the NHL playoffs this year, and that....is an anomaly
The opening round, the NHL had the better of the two, IMO.
He was landed on last night, and hurt his ribs. Don't know how much impact that will have, hope he's good to go.
Steph Curry has not missed a FT in the fourth quarter of the playoffs since 2015. Let that sink in.
He's freaking amazing.
