    If you thought the Bucks-Bulls series was chippy, I expect tonight's game to be on par with last nights GoT

    Warriors in 5 vs Memphis. After watching the Memphis/Portland series I just could not get over how both of those teams looked bad against one another.

    coming in late (again), but that game 7 was a classic. it had everything -- two incredibly evenly matched teams, great plays, chess match strategically -- but in the end the thing that impressed me the most was how damned classy the spurs were even losing a close, emotional game. Pop and Duncan are everything that is good about the NBA.

    This cavs Bulls game is wildly entertaining so far. Dirty ass dunleavy is mvp and I'm sitting here cackling at these ridiculous kyrie lay ups. They're astounding.

    Cle started mike miller, which thoroughly did not work. James jones is also not hitting 3s, which means his only use on the floor is to goad Joachim Noah into isoing against him. Chicagos bigs looks pretty bad so far. Pau gasol is a mid range shooting sieve on D, Noah can't do much, taj is invisible, mirotic barely played. Rose looks shifty, butler is good, prob underused. Noah is guarding shumpert, which is fantastic. Shumpert took 10 shots in the first half (and can't hit a jumper). Bron looks pretty damn good on offense and on the boards, but he's spacey on D.

    Cleveland started awfully while the Bulls hit all their 3s and went up 16. Kyrie went nuts and now Cleveland is down 5 at half.

    - When Mike Miller made his 3 early in the first half, I feared him going 2012 Heat mode.
    - Pau is proving to be the X-factor for the Bulls right now. He went 5 for 5 at one point with his mid-range.
    - Thibs went with Kirk instead of Snell again. He wasn't his usual horrible self though surprisingly
    - And yes, agree with BroSport. Dunleavy low-key Bulls MVP haha

    not really that impressed w/ chicago, esp if they're gonna keep playing noah. they hit a ton of jumpers, contested and not. cleveland's gonna play mike miller less for sure. dude was -20 in 16 minutes haha.

    anyways rose was pretty good, but he had a lot of rest and he's played shitty w/ only 1 day rest in the playoffs. i still think cleveland is gonna win the series.

    jimmy butler is phenomenal. lol he played 44 min and said he was exhausted at halftime. thibs makes no sense to me. butler plays giant minutes, hinrich plays 18, mirotic plays 2. snell plays 0.

    clippers-rockets is UHMAZING so far. through one q houston has 9 TOs, 4 by harden, and i swear just about all of them were live-ball. i think houston has missed 10 uncontested or lightly contested point-blank layups, and there have been multiple fast break --> turnover --> opposing fast break --> turnover sequences. also, austin rivers.

    16 turnovers at 9:32 of second quarter.

    Sloppy basketball on both sides.

    Bulls were better than the Cavs. They had to win or it was hopeless. Lots of holes exposed on both teams. The Bulls rebounded extremely well, that was the most important difference I saw. Great to see Butler v James in the playoffs again.

    The HOU - LAC game seems to rest on Ariza and Terrence Jones. If Jones can slow Blake down and Ariza can take advantage of no natural matchup, then Houston has a chance. Uff, it was vomit inducing wishing Houston will win. Also vomit inducing watching Olajuwon cheer them on. Not a series I can invest in.

    Great win by the Clips and I am happy to see others step it up especially in the fourth. If I were Doc, i'd sit CP3 again if he isn't even close to 100% then again you also want to finish the series as fast as possible so I could see him going out there but it'll be risky.

    As we ponder Tim Duncan's future, here's a truly remarkable statistic: No Spurs team with Duncan has ever won fewer than fifty games in a season (excluding the 1998-99 lockout-shortened season when only fifty regular-season games were played), and until this year, had ever finished lower than second place in its division. Talk about consistency.
