    We're going to do this again this year. Discuss the first round of the playoffs here: if any one series generates enough discussion, it will be splintered off into its own thread, but we're not going to start from the premise that every first-round series needs its own thread, only to end up with 4-6 three-post threads.

    dang, Indiana could of had one on their home court. Good game to watch. Hope they are more to come in a similar fashion.

    Why don't they put the playoffs logo on the court anymore?

    I guess it's not important but I've noticed it since Stern left and for whatever reason, it takes away.

    4 points and 5 assists from Lowry isn't going to hack it against any team in the playoffs

    Milwaukee has looked impressive to me; I wish that people weren't so terrible, so that they (Antetokuonmpo, in particular) could get the love they deserve.

    Please, John Hammond, pretty please build a championship contender around Giannis Antetokuonmpo. I will be heartbroken if he ends up leaving Milwaukee to chase a ring.

    Look at the way Milwaukee won. Giannis is an absolute monster, but when you look at everyone else, you realize that they don't have the best players. They're all just a bunch of high IQ players with great coaching. This continues to reflect back on the Cousins tenure for me.

    You don't need elite players. You just need great coaching, leadership, and players buying in. Exactly what we saw from the Bucks in round 1.

    Because Cousins played with so many "high IQ players with great coaching," like...? And that reflects on Cousins, how?

    If I could somehow get Spurs/Bucks in the Finals, I would be quite pleased. I know that #CasualSportsFan wouldn't watch, but I would be here for it.

    This is the first time that the Gasol brothers have faced each other in the playoffs, isn't it?

    can they fast forward to the Clippers/Jazz game all ready? This game turned ugly real quick.

    Funny how these relatively healthy most of the season Grizzlies only finished 1 game better than Joergers patch up job last year.

    This is going to sound ****ed up, but I hope that Favors is injured... Otherwise, if he lost his starting job to Boris Diaw? o_O

    EDIT - Holy ****! Gobert just went out, on the first play of the game!
  19. Kingz19

    Kingz19 New Member

    Diaw fits in better with the lineup.

    Knee sprain on Gobert.

    That sucks

    This, plus Favors is just coming back from injury.

    Redick getting worked by Ingles

    Ingles has been great all year.
  25. Kingz19

    Kingz19 New Member

    Jazz play great D. George Hill is making life hard on Paul. Ingles and Hood sticking to Redick like glue.

    They can't match up with Blake though and losing Gobert turns Jordan into an issue

    Good game so far.

    I am sick to my stomach.

    The Bucks are building a monster, length at every position enough to bog down any ball movement, a sight to behold.

    Did Oliver Miller get shorter?

    Hayward turning it on

    Game of the day so far
