Never thought biyombo would be this good with great shooters around him. Always thought he played awesome defense., but this was a little unexpected

i'm hoping they can take a game or two at home

happy they finally get to go eastern conference finals. they should've signed vince carter or something to a one or two year deal. and tmac to like assistant coach. that would've been awesome

I don't think it's that big. Raptors took six out of the twelve in games against them this season, and finished the season just one game behind them.

Huh? No team plays another 12 times in one season. It's 4 games at most.

Is this how Bogut got a groin injury?




also this video on how allowing zone defense was more impactful on the game than hand checking

Someone did that to Ginobili this year, he required surgery and was out for a month.

Ouch.

Okc vs oak is one of those paquaio vs maywather level hype series, that'll end up being just that, ending 4-1 with WB KD and co frustrated and dejected.

I actually thought Warriors - Spurs was more like Pacquiao - Mayweather, in terms of hype and storyline

I want okc oak to be awesome, don't get me wrong, but home court advantage and probable away loss by okc could make this a quick assed series.

I feel like tonight is really the series swing game. Seems like the only away game okc can steal.

When they made handchecking illegal and allowed less and less contact they had to give some tools for the defense and remove illegal defense completely, it's not euro zone anyway because they made 3s defensive rule so the defense doesn't stay so strong, after all these defense heavy games of late 90s and early 00s were some of the most poorly televised periods of NBA. I guess it was made to make games more entertaining more like they wre in 80s.
post #25633 of 27247
Yeah but it was a little surprising to see how many current and former star players said they would rather get rid of zone than allow hand checking.

Not a flagrant, just bad luck.

Depends on whether you thought he could've stopped his follow through. He wasn't getting the ball by the time the arm hit the face. But yeah, hard to adjust in real time.
