You can see why the NBA implemented the No Leaving the Bench rule, to limit brawl participation.  But later over-enforcement of that really screwed the Nash Suns.

It screwed the Knicks before that.  PJ Brown bodyslams Charlie Ward.  Ewing steps over the line. David Stern gives series to the HEAT the Knicks had in hand.

The NBA gets too rule-bound and caught up in literal interps of rules.

You can see that these days in silly breakaway foul calls (2 FT's and the ball), where there's nothing dangerous, or the ballhandler is half a step ahead etc.

If you got no one to root for for the next hopefully 3-4 weeks, I can get you a pass for the Celts bandwagon-always looking for good basketball fans

Thank you Bank, I appreciate it, but I get just enough Celtics here. See, I like you, and I wish we had a team like yours, but at the end of the day the Celts are still one of the enemies.

Best I can do is remember when I traded Melo for Jaylen and Rozier (when both of them were on the bench, before Celts went all in for Hayward).

The Celtics just did something no team in NBA history has ever done.

They beat a team coached by Nick Nurse.

The Raptors were also undefeated in the bubble against every team but the Celtics.



For the first time ever the Easter Conference Finals will not feature a #1 or a #2 seed.



If LeBron was a franchise he would be 10th all time in playoff wins.

FWIW, I’ll root for you against Riley.

What happened to the Clippers in the second half?

I thought they had the game at the half and switched to watching baseball. Can never tell!

They started fouling a ton 3Q.
They were lucky Nugs were missing FT's
(I cringed when down 16, Milsap missed a pair; then next poss, Jokic missed the 1st FT).

PaulGeorge started missing and taking questionable shots.
With Zubac out, LAC D died.  PA Bev fouled out.
Only LouWill looked confident and willing to shoot.
Shamet a total nonentity; finally got replaced by RegJax.

Gary Harris played with a lot of energy and got steals and mad hustle plays, really helped turn things around 3Q.  4Q, Murray made his midrangers; Kawhi missed his.
CLips got stagnant.

Clips killed Nugs on the boards to get a big lead 2Q.
Then 2nd half, DEN controlled the boards and hustled up extra possessions with o-boards and steals.

Malone is a hell of a coach. Game 7 should be fun.

D’Antoni and Houston part ways.

Along with Shamet, Morris was also a no-show.  And he joined in on the 3Q foulathon.
