nuggets still havent beaten a 50 win team in the playoffs

While technically true, the Clippers in 2020 were on pace for 56 wins before COVID and the Jazz were on pace for 50. That was pre AG too.

I went with Wolves in 6 and it took 7. I will be surprised if this next series does not go 7.

Iím going Mavs in 7. But itís possible Wolves in 6. This is the most fun Iíve had watching basketball since 2017.

I think Minne wins it all... they just look above and beyond any team left including the celts imo. But we'll see. I think this series favors Minne for sure...


I'd love a Minnesota Indy finals. Seems like a random matchup I'd get in 2k9 back in the day lol

Ant said he wanted Kyrie and I think he regretted that. Luka waiting for Ant to come to him so he could shoot a 3 on him was cold. Canít wait to see how Minnesota adjusts.

Go Mavs!

Pacers got whooped in Game 2 and I am here for it, fuck them as usual.
Halliburton left the game in third quarter with a strained hamstring and if he ends up pulling an OG Anuoby and not being able to play the next few games they are absolutely fucked, Indy has no chance without him, like zero.

Rudy Gobert may be a 4x DPOY but having him guard, or should I say attempt to guard Luka on that last shot knowing he was going to take a three for the win is insane, someone else should have been out there getting scorched.

Serious though this series is so much fun and by that I mean itís fun watching the Wolves blow huge leads and choke down the stretch and seeing just how ice cold Luka and Kyrie are, like they are seriously some real deal finishers and are both balling out of control right now, two games coming up in Dallas up 2-0, letís see if they can handle business at home now.

Forreal. I need to rewatch the shot, but would've thought gobert at least got a finger on it.

After seeing it again, a perfectly executed switch. Had gobert on skates lol. Was probably anticipating a drive to the rack...

I do hope these go the distance. Pretty entertaining so far.

After watching the playoffs this year I am confused by the rules of basketball I thought I understood. Take Lukaís last shot. The only reason Gobert was guarding Luka was because a Mavs player grabbed the Wolves guard and physically removed him from the play. Basically marched him away from Luka. I understand officials donít want foul calls at the end of the game to dictate the results but come on. That illegal hold allowed for a mismatch which won the games for the Mavs.

NO LEAD IS SAFE itís been proven by both the Pacers and the Wolves with both choking away huge double digit leads multiple times.

Celts almost came back from 0-3 down last year so Indy should just use that as fuel but teams up 3-0 in the NBA playoffs are like 154-0 combined and the Celtics themselves are 17-0 when up 3-0 so it ainít looking good for the Pacers.

Minnesota can stop the bleeding if they win tomorrow they will be right back in the series but going on the road might prove to be a bit too much to overcome and if Dallas wins tomorrow the Wolves are cooked obviously.

Man, Boston is clearly an exceptionally good team this year, but this moving on against one heavily hobbled opponent after another is getting a bit boring

Can't believe I have to root for a team from Texas but here we are.  I am 100% on the god damn Mavs train now that they're playing that evil green team. 
Ran into Bill Walton a few times at ASR and Agenda over the years, he was always coming to trade shows randomly.  He was truly an awesome individual.

The fact that Shammgod is on the Mavs coaching staff is enough for me.

I also love that the 3 Dallas teams not the Cowboys are up right now.

go Mavs I guess.

I like a lot of things about the Mavs actually, I just despise "Texas sports fans" for the most part.  But Cuban is a super solid owner, if you haven't listened to his All The Smoke episode, it's really good and he comes across as one of the best owners of all time.  I like Luka's game and Kyrie seems to really have found his gear in that system.  Kidd has always been likeable to me as a coach as well, wish the Lakers kept him when he was an assitant in the bubble for us.

I'm a Cowboy hater to the core, but I love the Mavs roster and organization.

I especially loved the Michael Finley - Dirk Nowitzki - Steve Nash Mavericks. They were the NBA Street cheat code.

Youíre right, Celtics could have lost every game in that series because the Pacers were up and at times they were up on them big, but what does it say about the Pacers that they couldnít hold a lead in any of those games on the big stage?
Theyíre fucking trash and theyíre gonna be remembered as such.

 Boston may or may not win the championship this year but they SWEPT Indiana so it isnít like it was close, Indy couldnít muster a single fucking win thatís how lame they turned out to be.

At least Minnesota didnít go out like that, I mean hopefully they still lose the next game but they are similar to Indy in the fact that they canít hold a lead down the stretch when it counts, minus that last game where they hung on to barely win and extend the series.
