Definitely have the look of one these past 20+, even without their best player in the last 2. It's hard to believe they were 11-27 at one point.

Raps are the first team to officially clinch a playoff spot. 

 

So who do they choke against this year?

D-Rose just got signed to the Wolves and just in time for the Celtics game. with him, Butler, Aaron Brooks, Taj Gibson and Coach Thibodeau. The Wolves are like a sanctuary for ex-Bulls

Holy :censored: that was a scary fall for Jaylen Brown. 

 

Thankfully he was able to at least walk off the court. 

No doubt a concussion. Could have been worse (like Hayward). 

 

The NBA should scrap "hanging onto the rim" technicals. They should be teaching hanging onto it.

HOLY CRAP that fall looks terrifying. At least he is alright but, they should try to exercise more caution when hanging onto the rims

I'm just happy he can move after that. My fear watching it live was that he broke his neck. His body was perpendicular to the ground and his hands just slipped off the rim, it looked like he landed right on his neck/upper back. Not good.

Oh yay, Steph’s ankle issue is rearing it’s ugly head again :(

 

Hopefully it’s early enough for him to recover in time for the playoffs, ala KD’s Zaza-induced knee issue last year. 

 

Honestly, if I’m the Warriors, I start sitting their stars the remainder of the season. Houston going super saiyan isn’t making that an easier proposition, though.

The Warriors were bound to break down sooner or later. The one-seed isn’t totally necessary, and I’m sure they’ll be fine without it. Still, I’m not looking forward to Houston in May/June, maybe.

 

I’m just glad I can keep up my Dragon Ball Z Abridged .gif habit in this thread.

Just saw the Jaylen Brown fall.... glad it isn't a worse injury, that fall looked awful.

Houston/New Orleans could be a doozy in round 1. AD is on a tear.

 

These will probably be the most competitive Western playoffs in some time. Everyone is really good.

It didn't take long for Pistons fans to turn on Blake Griffin. Stan van Gundy's going to get fired and the whole situation is in disarray. Kinda feel bad for everyone there.

Jordan Clarkson decided it'd be fun to shoot the Cavs out of tonight's game. What a mess.

 

IT is having one of his good games. Lakers looking good.

So are people still peddling the delusion that Lebron & The Cavs are just in "cruise control" and will tear through the playoffs again because Lebron? 

 

Hell, even The Dubs look mortal now.

Calm down, Julius!

 

And that Cavs D is atrocious.

Yes, actually that's exactly what's gonna happen.

 

The Celtics are too reliant on Brown and Tatum not getting big stage jitters, and the Raptors are the NBA Bengals; the Fighting LeBrons play this game every year with fans and they still end up in the Finals.

I too am going to enjoy seeing the Cavs get bounced in the 1st round.

Celtics are doubly cooked if Marcus Smart's newest injury keeps him out of the playoffs. Meanwhile the Pacers snuck up to the 3-seed and while that's probably their ceiling, you could imagine some momentum carrying them in the playoffs. At any rate I think the Raps are actually legit this year!

Nate McMillan has won only one playoff series in his career and that was 13 years ago when the Sonics still existed. He's lost five in a row.
