1. Deserves got nothing to do with it.

 

2. Do we really deserve to watch the Warriors bludgeon a different team to death? 

 

Yes it does. NBA fans deserve avoiding the same Finals matchup for the 4th year in a row. The Celtics have a better chance of beating GS than the Cavs anyway, imo. They've had their number more than most teams during their stretch of dominance.

This is what worries me about the Cavs chances of a 2-0 comeback:

Are we sure this team is better than what Boston already went up against in these playoffs?

I think Milwaukee and Philly  are better rosters  man for man than Cleveland.

I tried telling people before, like 07 this Cavs team is just Lebron James.

 

Philly, Bucks, Celtics, their whole team & gameplan does not revolve around 1 guy like The Cavs. 

Lebron doesn't have a guy like Kyrie (Thanks Danny:P) to pick up the slack when he has a bad game, or to put the foot on the throat when he has +40 points & a Triple-Double. 

Not to mention almost no one on that team knows how to play defence. 

 

That being said, Being perfectly honest, I still thought The Cavs were making it AGAIN when He beat Indiana & Toronto.

I am sympathetic to the idea that the NBA is a bit too predictable but I don’t know that I saw any predictions of a 2-0 Celtics lead here.

For what feels like the first time in a while, lottery-type teams win the lottery:

 

1. Phoenix

2. Sacramento

3. Atlanta

4. Memphis

5. Dallas

 

The Kyrie trade netted (get it?) the Cavs #8. The Lakers pick turned into #10 for Philly.

 

So that happened!

 

Fun Fact: Atlanta was the #1 seed in the East just three years ago.

If it's Warriors vs. Celtics don't we lose out either way. Warriors win the title again or the obnoxious Boston fan base doesn't shut up if the Celtics win. :D

I don’t believe they will, this team is scrappy enough to play way above their talents should be. They got brad Stevens who can neutralize their game plan and has in the past. I’m not saying I expect them to win, but I do see it going to atleast 6 games

 

I’m not so sure about that. Golden State and Boston are somewhat similar in their approach to the game as they both use strong coaching strategy and teamwork to move the ball (It’s not identical obviously, but the theme is the same compared to heavy-iso teams like Houston). The problem with that though is that Golden State is similar, but legitimately WAY better at each and every position than Boston. And in some spots, they’re so much better that it’s going to expose some gaping holes that most didn’t even notice vs lesser opponents. This was seen last night vs Houston, too. They have some issues with their role players that are coming to the surface that they’re good enough to cover vs just about anyone else other than Golden State. 

 

 

Also, and I know this is SUPER against the stream, but I’d still take Kerr over Stevens at this point...

From a pure coaching stand point I can’t support that, when Steve Kerr was out for the majority of last year, and some of the playoffs Luke Walton of all people was still able to have the team finish as the No1 seed and win a championship. That shows to me it’s more the team than Kerr any day. No way Kerr could have the same success as Stevens has done if they switched teams. On the other hand if Stevens had Golden State you would probably see better numbers outside of the 9-73 season, but they probably still would have that championship instead of losing.

The Celtics have won a regular season game against Golden State in each of the last three seasons, and in 14-15 they took a 30 point lead on them before crapping themselves and handing it back. Of course it's a pretty small sample size, but it shows that the Celtics - Brad Stevens in particular - at least has an idea of how to play them.

 

This series isn't over, though. Quicken Loans will be the most hostile environment this Celtics team has walked into this season. Cleveland's role players will show up at home. If the Celtics can get one game in Cleveland it will (obviously) really help, but if the Cavs get both I still favor them to win the series. And you know Scott Foster and Tony Brothers will resurface in one of these Cleveland games and pull the same horse**** they pulled in Philly.

Sometimes I feel like I hallucinated that season, so thank you.

Rockets hitting everything tonight.

Rockets will tie this series tonight but could lose both in Oakland unless Scott Foster shows up. Chris Paul's brother heckling Durant all night. :D

So Curry said he "tweaked" something tonight.

 

He's what 80-85% coming in to the series? In the two games he's 13/21 in 2PT attempts but just 2/13 in 3PT shots.

Can someone lock Skip Bayless in a basement somewhere until the Finals start?

Fixed it for you... Can't stand him and his constant need to blow LeBron at every single moment.
