NFT: NBA Playoffs- Round 2

dep026 : 4/28/2019 10:05 am
Started last night with Kawhi showing the ultimate beast he is. Sakiam not far behind. Embiid and Butler shit the bed.

Today the Western Conference starts (I know its the semifinals, but lets be realistic.)

Go KD, Steph, and Klay!!!!

The Bucks are an incredibly deep team

My main man Malcolm Brogdon with 12-3-3 on 4-5 shooting in the first half.....nice

Brogs is great. I know he's an RFA, but unless he has some red flag like injury, I would have loved NYK chasing after him. You'd think if they are paying all their guys, someone has to shake loose. He'd be a fantastic starting PG, but also would be great value to chase down a different max than Kyrie. I know KI is a pkg deal, just fantasizing
god damn  
santacruzom : 5/17/2019 10:43 pm : link
Giannis is just a frighteningly versatile and complete basketball player. I'm pretty pessimistic about the Warriors' chances against the Bucks, but then, the rest of these playoffs are just gravy to me after the way they beat the Rockets anyway.

They have an excellent coach too. I wanted him over Fiz. But Fiz may have been brought in partly to get the big guns here in FA.
I love watching Warriors games  
santacruzom : 5/18/2019 11:00 pm : link
In which Draymond Green is the best player on the floor at all times.
I mean  
santacruzom : 5/18/2019 11:02 pm : link
His box score in this game is going to tell a hell of a story, and yet, he's playing even better than it suggests.
Yeah he looks especially awesome today  
ChaChing : 5/18/2019 11:28 pm : link
I sometimes think he gets a little OOC but when he's executing like this have at it
I love all the trapping & ball denial  
ChaChing : 5/18/2019 11:29 pm : link
I was calling for that early rounds, but both series are using it well. It helps to have good players & defenders who are executing it really well, nor is it just 'easy' to do but I feel like it's rarely even attempted in today's NBA
Obviously the Warriors are the beneficiary  
santacruzom : 5/19/2019 12:06 am : link
But it still hurts a little to see Dame play so poorly this series.
Curry is reminding people who he is  
Osi Osi Osi OyOyOy : 5/19/2019 2:38 am : link
Clearly outplaying Lillard. Dray and Klay coming alive. These Warriors look dangerous again.

The Bucks are so good. They win without Brogdon who had a 50/40/90 season + defense and ball-handling. Giannis + depth + coaching = great squad. With Durant I’d go Warriors in the Finals, same against the Raptors. I’m not ready to count Toronto out.
Watxhing stephen vs the game  
nygiants16 : 5/19/2019 8:25 am : link
You see why this team plays so much better eith him on the court, just the way he talks about the game and the way he thinks and it goes back to high school
I don't know about "so much better"  
santacruzom : 5/19/2019 11:53 am : link
But I prefer watching the style of play.

With Durant out there though, I doubt game 2 or 3 are even close at the half
Bucks Raps in double OT  
ChaChing : 5/19/2019 9:54 pm : link
Siakim missed a couple FTs late regulation allowing Middleton to tie it up

Giannis has been held in check scoringwise, but Bucks have gotten help from elsewhere, esp Brogdon & Hill. But he also has 23 boards, 7 assists

Kawhi has been hurt since the 1st qtr, clearly is struggling but has 28 and continues to play. Lots of foul trouble. But Siakim & Powell have chipped in
Giannis just fouled out too  
ChaChing : 5/19/2019 9:54 pm : link
Lowry & Powell already have
Hell of an effort from  
SimpleMan : 5/19/2019 10:03 pm : link
Leonard. Playing hobbled and giving it all.
Yeah he's gone beast mode in 2OT here  
ChaChing : 5/19/2019 10:05 pm : link
helps w/ no Giannis but he really looked slowed by whatever he tweaked...until the last few min
George  
MookGiants : 5/19/2019 10:08 pm : link
Hill and Brogdon were the only ones who played well in OT.

Lopez, Bledsoe, Middleton and Giannis were absolutely atrocious
That should ice it...  
ChaChing : 5/19/2019 10:08 pm : link
Bucks panicked a bit on the last possession or 2. Great game, glad to see the series go 2-1
Bledsoe in particularly fell flat on his face last night  
Greg from LI : 5/20/2019 9:17 am : link
The Bucks have to hope Brogdon's conditioning is improving enough that he can start taking some of Bledsoe's minutes because he has frequently looked terrible in the playoffs.
Giannis.  
SFGFNCGiantsFan : 5/21/2019 8:36 pm : link
Good God.

Shine came off of that shit after game 1.

Kawhi just being Kawhi and taking his sheep with him to the finals.
Over/under, 955.

How many Drake camera shots Saturday night.

He has his own stage right now in Toronto, like a mancave on stage with his crew I assume outside Raps' arena and a crowd watching him watch the game. So fn weird
I don't see either of these teams beating GS likely even w/o Durant  
ChaChing : 5/23/2019 10:48 pm : link
The Bucks length might be a slight curveball. But they go cold for ages regardless of the defense. Raps outside of Kawhi are outmatched at every spot basically

Certainly either could get hot out of nowhere, but on a bad day GSW will outscore these guys and still has solid D to help on the other end
Entertaining game  
MookGiants : 5/23/2019 10:49 pm : link
but both Milwaukee and Toronto will get absolutely destroyed by the Warriors.

Those are 5 game max series.
Middleton  
MookGiants : 5/23/2019 10:50 pm : link
has been atrocious in pretty much every way
It hit the rim  
SFGFNCGiantsFan : 5/23/2019 10:52 pm : link
.
Watching Lopez trying to rebound is pathetic  
dep026 : 5/23/2019 10:53 pm : link
Always has been pathetic and always will be. Toronto got this.
Kawhi is the best player in the game  
Osi Osi Osi OyOyOy : 5/23/2019 10:53 pm : link
.

Kobe level or even better. He surpassed Pippen as the best person to pair with MJ tonight.
God Milwaukee knows how to fuck up things  
dep026 : 5/23/2019 10:55 pm : link
Jesus.
Brogdon  
MookGiants : 5/23/2019 10:56 pm : link
hasn't been much better than Middleton either. How did he not try to grab that ball before it went out?
GoldenState wouldn’t lose a game  
dep026 : 5/23/2019 10:59 pm : link
With a healthy Durant.
I still think this goes

I think Bucks in G6 will be the most heavily betted road playoff CF post-Game 4 in a long time. I’d be truly surprised if they lost.

Still got Toronto overall

Brogdon was much better than Middleton last night. Cmon.
This is an epic  
MookGiants : 5/25/2019 10:38 pm : link
meltdown by the Bucks.

The type of meltdown that gets a coach fired.

They were up 15 with like 4 minutes to go in the 3rd, now they're getting smoked.

Two games in a row with huge leads and blowing both of them
They’re in deep shit now

Kawhi posterizes Giannis.  
bceagle05 : 5/25/2019 10:40 pm : link
Can't believe Milwaukee is gonna drop four straight.
Kawhi posterizing Giannis...Bucks are on their last gasp  
ChaChing : 5/25/2019 10:41 pm : link
There's time and they aren't down too far, but it ain't looking good, esp in Toronto w/ everyone rabid for their first finals
Bucks bounce right back.  
bceagle05 : 5/25/2019 10:44 pm : link
Should be a fun finish.
Of course the moment I say that  
ChaChing : 5/25/2019 10:45 pm : link
it's a 7-0 Bucks run and a 1 pt game
Giannis looking a bit flustered on the O side  
ChaChing : 5/25/2019 10:55 pm : link
Last possession he had the ball in the paint with space, even had a G on him, but didn't even look at the rim

That was a great block tho
Kawhi is a legend  
Osi Osi Osi OyOyOy : 5/25/2019 11:04 pm : link
The Bucks blew it but they had a great season. Giannis can be even better.

Great series. Lowry and the Raps depth showed up when it mattered. Durant’s health matters, hope he can play. Kawhi is so great he can guard Giannis and Curry. Can’t have him chase Curry around but certain situations he can lock him up too.
Congrats Toronto. Kawhi is ridiculous  
ChaChing : 5/25/2019 11:20 pm : link
Giannis is a legit MVP candidate, but if I were him I'd be in the gym starting tonight / tomorrow working on my FTs & Js. It's not easy & would take time, but it's simple

He already pretty much unstoppable, but if he had even an avg or just below J, Bucks likely don't lose this series (not solely his fault but just as the star that's the expectation)

its been a rollercoaster 24 years of being a raptors fan so ecstatic that they’ve reached this stage. Leonard is indeed the no drama superstar
