    yeah i agree generally with all your points, but even with kevin love's defense and his being the third wheel he's still top 20 in plus minus (cavs are like 6 points better when he's on the floor)

    yes bulls to finals is not a sure thing, bulls past cavs is not a sure thing but definitely quite possible maybe even probable. still rooting for hawks

    Diehard Grizz fan checking in. I know there are a lot of GSW fans on SF, I am looking forward to a good series. If not for the Grizz, I am pulling for the Warrior this year. I am just hoping we can get Conley back in time for the series. He is a trooper, which gives me hope. He will play through it if it is at all possible.

    Regardless, looking forward to watching some good basketball.

    Unstoppable force meets immovable object kind of dichotomy.

    Vintage D-Will came to play tonight. He's got 33 points. This crossover on DeMarre Carroll was just filthy.

    This game is going to OT in Brooklyn, by the way.

    EDIT: Ok, how are the lowly Nets giving Atlanta so much trouble? The Hawks are not looking like championship contenders right now...

    Yes it's amazing… good for him he actually remembers how to play basketball. That's $100M well spent for sure.

    Hey so I finally saw MCW play in a game that actually mattered. Bucks won the game but MCW must be the shakiest PG for a playoff team this year. Guy seems like he's got some skills but it's clear that he has no idea what he's doing out there

    I guess the league figured Love needed the rest anyway.

    What Olynick did was intentional, both he and JR Smith deserved 10 game suspension.



    I'd go one step further, he's just downright awful on offense. His shooting is just atrocious, I just don't understand how these guys get in the NBA under this obsession with upside. If this is what upside looks like, stay in college, kid. Learn to shoot. Watch more game tape.

    Trading Knight for this guy was a big mistake. I understand what Kidd wants to do by having a sea of long arms on defense, but if the guy can't run your point, what good is he?

    This aside, Impressive comeback from the Bucks in the series. It's become the most fun series of the playoffs.

    seconds before the Kevin Love Injury:

    [​IMG]


    although Kelly held on to Kevin's arm causing dislocation of Kevin's shoulder, you can see that its standard practice for expert rebounders to do these kind of things like locking arms while jostling for a rebound. just as Love locked arms with Kelly while jostling for the rebound before Kevin's unfortunate injury occurred.

    Really? I didn't get to watch the game, so I don't know if he passes my eye test or not, but his stat line looked pretty decent last night -- 22 points, eight rebounds, nine assists and three blocks, while shooting 10-for-15. The consensus today among sports columnists was that he roundly outplayed D-Rose, at least for one game.

    Or were you talking about Game 4 and not Game 5?

    Dude also rolled his ankle, taped it up, and came back in the game. Props. Pesky, pesky Bucks
