    Again, fucking BOX-OUT DRILLS!

    Curry is cold blooded though.

    Can anyone tell me why New Orleans did not intentionally foul Golden State before Curry buried the 3 (I'm talking about the first one he made,, not the buzzer beater)? NO were up at least two possessions with less than 24 seconds on the clock. Why not play the foul game at that point?

    Probably just a brain fart. Couple chances to foul and they didn't.

    I mean, I understand letting a sub-par offensive team milk the clock but this is GSW we're talking about. Concede the two free throws, you're still up 2, and GSW will have no choice but to foul you back when you get the ball.

    What a come back. I'm sure people will be real salty about Draymond's flop. Killed the Pels with second chance points. I don't think the Pels will have the morale to put up a fight for game 4.

    Ryan Anderson was looking like Dirk out there tonight. And they stopped giving him the ball completely.

    The reality is, they were going to lose this series anyway. Just would have been nice for them to steal one.


    It's funny because Bulls-Bucks game tonight was kinda similar with Chicago making a come back 20 points down.



    Is the first round awesomeness back??

    yesssssss indessertyum complains about the quality of the 1st round and we immediately get one decent game, a 2OT game where rose scores 34 and looks like a former mvp, and an OT game w/ a historic comeback and a shot for steph curry's hof highlight reel.

    i didn't watch the cavs celtics game, but damn i was pretty happy with the games today.

    i think pelicans will take the next one and bucks might take it too. kidd can make the adjustments but his players might not be able to execute whereas monty williams can't make the adjustments but his players might be able to talent their way out of it

    So far we've had 4 overtimes (one of them going 2 OT). But I think last year's feeling isn't quite there because the records are lopsided (3-0 for Cavs, GSW, Bulls). :laugh:


    Fortunately, we still have Spurs-Clips coming up!

    Great night of games. I DVR'd the first 2 so I wouldn't need to sit thru endless commercials, so I couldn't stay awake for the last one but it sounds like a roller coaster.

    That Celtics team doesn't have a chance in hell but they're scrappy and make a game of it every time out. Reminds me of the Bulls - Heat series 2 years ago with Nate Robinson.

    The Bulls - Bucks game was fantastic. Giannis was at sea the first 2 games but he came alive, the kid is so impressive to watch. You look at him standing next to John Henson (a center) and Giannis is taller! I actually found myself pulling for them. I know they don't have a chance in the series, but they deserve to be rewarded with a win.

    This first round has been a shadow of last year, no doubt.

    My guess is that Monty Williams (like many coaches) thinks that it is somehow unmanly to play strategically rather than straight-up. When arguably the best three-point shooter in NBA history is on the other team, you have to foul in that situation.

    It looked like Curry had his foot on the line on his first game-tying attempt. And that he was fouled on the game-tying basket.
