That was a 7-game war. With an intensity level that was off the charts.

Tatum is a super-star but Smart is the soul of the Celts

what a stupendous player

A winner

Smart just locked down whoever he was on.
And had a pretty key block when Normative Powell tried to force a fast break against a few Celts.

Just caught a replay of the last 5 minutes of the 4Q and OT.

Butler struggled and couldn't make a thing in OT after his big 3 to end the 4Q.
But then muscled in a tough drive over Tatum with the and 1.
Butler came through twice in the dead clutch (last 30 secs of reg and OT).

That Adebayo block was ridiculous to end an OT playoff game.  Great play.

OT was pretty ragged with a bunch of fouls, turnovers, missed shots.  I imagine some players were tired.


I saw MIA 3x in bubble play and what stood out: Dragic was spry zooming all over the place, Herro was very poised, Crowder was solid.  And you figure with Bam and Butler, plus Duncan Rob's wildcard shooting, Heat were gonna be a tough out.
I think Dragic's renaissance was the key to unlocking their potential.  With Bam and Bulter's playmaking allowing Dragic to be more of a free agent out there, without having to be the playmaker.

Guess I wasnt loud enough

How much of Clips loss falls on Rivers?

PG ineffective - Lou 4-27 for series from 3, Zubac low minutes - lack of effective sets - seemingly a playground ball O mentality and no defensive scheme answer to Nuggets effective play.

DWIGHT is RIGHT


Howard essentially was a star in his role, playing at a high level, seemingly driven by just being able to provide the Lakers a lift in the Western Conference finals against a Nuggets team playing with big centers.

He played 16 impactful minutes during the Lakersí 126-114 victory over Denver on Friday night, more than he did in the entire second-round series against the Houston Rockets

Game 2 Celts-Heat was really enjoyable.
Nice chess match.

A bit odd how BOS was relying on its PG's -- Kemba and Wanamaker -- for so much scoring.  Butler made a number of terrific plays, especially on D. 

Jaylen made two late key 3's but then missed a wide open corner 3 at the end.
They got it to the hot hand and open, just didn't go down.
Fine game.

G3 I just caught a replay of 2Q & 4Q.
MIA upped their intensity too late.
Missed 15 straight 3's ... yikes.

Consensus is Lakers got a good whistle yesterday after flooding the league with emails

In particular the Milsapp foul on the AD jumper and the no call with about 2 minutes left as Murray drove on Bron.

2 do or die Game 5s hopefully leading to Game Sixes

True. And they also won the game where you say he "deferred."
