This series of game endings is exhausting. Are we not due for a blowout???

 

I think the close games are showing that home court is real and a lot of the teams may be more evenly matched than we thought. There's so much skill that it makes sense it comes down to the end the further in the playoffs you go.

It's incredible to see what this Clippers team is capable of when they're all healthy and playing together. Marcus Morris will be missed when he leaves the bubble.

A bit of a defensive lapse on a play that the Celtics usually do well, with that zone, but that was so well executed by the Raptors. Can't really complain, being down 0-3 would have been really harsh on Toronto given how close all these games have been.

Stick a fork in Milwaukee. The team has no heart and that might be it for Budenholzer. Or at least maybe it should be.

This Celtics-Raptors series is going 7 isn't it? 😒

Between Game 3 the other night  & Game 7 against Philly last year, Raptors have to have a fossilized horseshoe up their ass when it comes to making last second FG.

Keep counting out the DEFENDING NBA champs, ESPN/US media in general. We'll gladly 'surprise' you again. Series all tied up, in spite of biased reffing, and big surprise, dirty play by a Boston sports team. #stillthechamps #screwboston #NBAPlayoffs2020

Toronto has no chance against either LA team, but that can definitely make it back to the Finals. Nurse is an excellent coach and those players believe in each other.

 

Milwaukee, on the other hand... Yikes.

 

Miami/Toronto would be a really exciting ECF matchup. And what I expect we'll see.

Gonna have to disagree with you there, DG. I think they can handle the Lakers should they both get there. Clippers might be too much.

Fine I'll be the one to say it. 

Balls on the table here, Miami is going to be the first NBA team to blow a 3-0 series lead. 

Uh huh... one overtime loss means they’ll lose the next 3, when the other team doesn’t have their best player and likely league MVP.

Rockets put up a solid fight, but that was an excellent fourth quarter on both ends by the Lakers 

 

When a team hits so many 3s like Houston did, there's really not much you can do. Credit to Vogel and the Lakers for not freaking out and closing out in the fourth. Really impressive win for LA.

Watching Nick Nurse makes me a nervous wreck. Not that he doesn't deserve his coaching plaudits, but his melodramatic sideline act makes Jurgen Klopp looks statuesque. Take a drink of water, buddy.
