72-10 not looking so good for the Warriors, although I see Pop monkeying with his bench both games, and the Spurs dropping both.

Woot! Proud of the Celtics. Can't believe what happened that first half :slayer:

Thank god Thomas put on his Kobes

Celtics took it to the Ws last night and deserved the win. They were able to take the Ws out of their game and got them to turn the ball over and commit way too many fouls. Ironically, when Draymond basically threw down that dude at the end of the game there was no foul call. Really hope Iggy comes back soon and is 95% or better throughout the playoffs because we will need him for a chance at a championship run. Warriors are certainly scuffling right now and look pretty tired for a team where no one plays more than 35 minutes per game but perhaps it's the toll of being the team everyone is gunning for plus all the wear and tear from dealing with the media. Putting on my optimist hat, when this team has had bad losses where they don't play Warriors ball they react pretty well so would be nice to see them use this for motivation over the next couple of weeks. Ultimately they're going to need to beat SA in the playoffs and thankfully will have home court.

Without Iggy the second unit just isn't as competitive as they've been in the past and would be nice to have Ezeli back as well for some energy from the 5 spot. We went from being the healthiest team in the league last season to a pretty banged up one this season (10th most injured).

They're still a relatively young team and still getting used to success unlike the record-setting Bulls team. As a Warriors fan I just hope they have enough left in the tank for a good shot at the championship. Although the loss last night was disappointing, it's really hard to complain about a 71 or 72 win season which has had so many magical moments and they're far and away the most entertaining team in the league right now.

I also just realized last night one of my former clients is a partial owner so I wish I was closer to him.

Man, I don't watch a lot of warriors or Celtics games, but after seeing Portland Boston the night before I knew Boston had a real shot against Golden State, so I watch the game. Avery Bradley is an amazing defender .

Amazing defence on Klay and some plays on Curry. Bradley really deserves to be called one of the best perimeter defenders.

Steph Curry quintuple-teamed tonight

Credit to Ed Davis, guy puts in a lotta effort at the rim.

Grizzlies continue their losing streak with a forgettable effort against Orlando.  Portland's in the 5th seed and the Mavs/Jazz are only 2 games back of Memphis for 6th place.  Can we possibly slide into the 8th seed with only 5 games left?

 

edit: didn't realize Portland played GSW tonight.  Only delays the inevitable for Memphis.

Congrats CB. Nice win in fantasy.

CB kicked my ass this week.

I hate Hassan Whiteside. When did he learn to hit free throws?
post #24898 of 27250
Thanks guys + well played Akeem - looked like it actually could've gone either way up until yesterday.

If the Blazers can survive the first round, a Steph/Klay vs Dame/CJ shootout series would be fun to watch.

Don't think it'll be close imo, Steph and Dame will be fun but Klay/others will greatly outshoot CJ/others.
