    i thought the Celtics would sweep Miami seeing as Jimmy Butler is out, but i was wrong. the heat are a tough-minded team though. they are one of the better coached teams in the league.

    the sixers and lakers both suffered devastating losses in game 2. it'll be interesting to see if they can bounce back tonight.

    the last few games you guys won in convincing fashion. that's how i thought the entire series would be. although i think the heat are a very well coached team, i also think their talent level (even with jimmy butler) is underwhelming. i'm still in shock about how far they made it in the playoffs last year.

    i think you guys can beat whoever your second-round opponent will be without porzingins. but i definitely think you'll need him to win it all. the good news he doesn't have a long-term injury :)

    Ya no KP is tough, but they’re like 20-4 without him or something like that. I think they pretty easily get out the East. Denver is a whole different story lol

    ^ i agree with you--i also see the Celtics winning the East easily--it won't get interesting for the Celtics until the NBA Finals

    the timberwolves have stepped up their game. i can't believe they're up 2-0 going back to minnesota. i wasn't worried about the nuggets after game 1, but i'm concerned now. it'll be interesting to see if denver can bounce back.

    OKC will probably beat Dallas, but i definitely think the Mavs can hang in there with them

    lol. Celtics live by the 3. Blown out by the Cavs. Lost to one guy Jimmy Butler last east finals. They can’t clutch big series. Idk if Celtics can take Brunson.

    Timberwolves costing me 200, thought Denver was going to the finals and winning it fairly easy. Timberwolves looking real good.

    He was injured 3rd quarter. One player can’t win your team a championship these days. Knicks need a star level player Brunson can pass to and accurately s---t. If Brunson had help, they would have easily beat the pacers.

    Boston would get slaughtered by the timberwolves and lucky Denver gave up. Or Denver would have easily swept the Celtics. But Boston is known to choke, they’ll blow a few games to the pacers when one guy, Jimmy Butler beat them last year.

    well, the series isn't over yet, but the mavericks are up 2-0 and if they do win the series, that's obviously a huge surprise. i don't even think mavs fans thought the mavs could win the west. luka has played a lot better in these last 3-4 games. for the majority of the playoffs, he's struggled shooting the ball.

    Fell asleep last night but watching Luka the games before, in the 4th he was clutch as h--- at getting a shot or a assist. If him or Kyrie can play hot to finish a game, they’re going to be tough to beat. No other 2 stars together are a better backcourt. Only Kobe and Shaq were comparable in analysts arguments. And most people said Kyrie will be a disaster on the mavs and was the most hated player, over a vaccine shot that did cause blood clots in some people that got the shots.

    The Celtics will get slapped in the face when they finally play a worthy top 4 team. Pacers blew game one and momentum. Kind of embarrassing that’s a eastern finals team. Tatum way too inconsistent. Ruined my parlay with under 2.5 3s, lmfao. In any street game, under 5 3s is bad for me. Not winning the finals with one 3 from a key player.

    There were a lot of analysts picking mavs before the series and when they explained why it convinced me to bet on the mavs when they were under dogs game 1. You have to stop Kyrie, and Luka. Hard to double letting the other with an easier matchup.

    Timberwolves are younger and some of their top players having bad games until the 4th is killing them. Luka and Kyrie are too much for them to handle.

    To say the pacers aren't a real team frightens me. They were too young to close out games yes but a team that had a over 92% chance to win 3 games in the late 4th shows something. Once they fire dumb rick Carlisle and pick up a couple of role players I expect them to be the 3 seed next year. ‍♂️

    Got swept by the Celtics, Jimmy Butler beat them himself last year lol
    I mean pacers lost to the lakers in that pointless in season tournament champ game, yikes! Pacers would get crushed in the west and you know it. Knicks get Brunson some help, no way pacers beat them in a 7 game series. Heard Durant might be coming to the Cavs or Knicks.

    Yes they lost to the lakers and blew 3 games they should have won, they were young and inexperienced. I still think they will be a problem for the east now that they got a taste of it all, and once they get in the finals vs the west anything can happen. This is a team that shot 67% in a game and averaged 50% shooting in the conference finals if they learned how to offensive rebound we are talking dallas indy battle instead
