The Sharks have officially entered Japanese Waters. 

 

They’ve officially turned into a basketball team. Told you they were a bunch of losers.

That was one of the ugliest games I've ever seen in the NBA playoffs. 2 Raptors fouled out, Giannis fouled out, and it had to go to double overtime.

But the Raptors got the win.

Bring the buckshot next time. #eatthebucks (Not a typo.)

After all the bitching and whining about how Durant going to the Warriors "broke the NBA" if Golden State won the championship with KD out it would be the funniest friggin thing ever.

 

If anything, it would validate what they've been saying. The Warriors were already a potential dynasty that won 73 games in a single season and then added a former MVP in his prime. The fact that they were the best team and got that much better is what irks people.

Raptors aren’t done yet. Let’s tie it up and send it back to Milwaukee.

So, are watching Draymond Green start to grow up a little bit? He had this to say after the game last night, which is about as self aware as I’ve ever seen from him: 

 

Quote

“I got to a point when I was doing more crying than playing,” he told reporters. “I am sure it was disgusting to watch because I felt disgusting playing that way. I just wanted to lock back in on the game. I understand that officials are not perfect and I still have conversations with them now when they miss a call but it is a completely different conversation.”

 

He’s been kind of noticeably more level headed this round, and it’s reflecting in his game. It’s almost like something finally clicked with him. I LOVE Draymond (I get why others don’t, though), but there are simply points where he’s just been so self destructive that it hurts everything else the Warriors are trying to do. You could say that a big part of why they fell apart in 2016 is because of the suspension he took in the Finals. He’s amazing, but has always been a head case. 

 

If he’s truly realized this, which I think he has (or at least, is starting to), the rest of the league should be absolutely TERRIFIED. His talent and value to the Warriors is absolutely underrated.

Honestly, I expected the Raptors to win one of their home games.  So enjoy the Raps' last victory of the season.

Or just shows that he further imbalanced the NBA by going to a team that didn’t need a top 2 player in the world to win a championship

We already knew that because they won it all in 2015 and won 73 games in 2016 without him. 

 

I think I've said this every year, but I'll say it again - I understand his decision from a personal and financial standpoint, but from a competitor's point of view, it'll never not be lame that he went to the Warriors. I think the only way he'll ever live it down is if he leaves, goes to the Knicks, and is able to bring a championship to New York.

I was watching with the volume off, but it looked like the refs just gave Portland points at the end of the first half?

Doesn't matter as Steph's last 90 seconds just set Portland up for the Warriors 3rd quarter barrage.

I think it's too early to call off the sweep.

Why doesn't Terry Stotts call timeouts?

Damn, Blazers. Three games in a row they’ve blown at least a 17 point lead in the second half. Unreal.

Didn't want to give Curry a rest since he's played the whole 2nd Half.
