Boston would outplay the Heat, then the Heat would play REALLY HARD to catch up, then Boston would outplay them again. I don't know what to make of that. Great game, at any rate.

I still think BOS will win the series though- MIA had to shoot 44% from 3 to win this one, plus have things go their way in the last minute. Boston looks like a little better team. But we'll see....


Miami was rusty. They have played the least amount of games in the bubble. They are going to be much more in rhythm in the 2nd game. .

Jimmy is clutch and let's see if Smart can shoot again like he did tonight.

What does everyone think of Malone and Nuggs if they pull this off?

We're about 9 minutes away from an Arturas Karnisovas built team reaching the WCF.

So, who's gonna be the Clippers scapegoat? PG or doc?
I don't know anything about college basketball. I would rather trade down/out. My Bulls big board for the 2020 Draft (as of September 4th):
1-Edwards; 2-Hayes; 3-Ball; 4-Avdija; 5-Haliburton; 6-Nesmith; 7-Vassel; 8-Okongwu; 9-Williams; 10-Pokusevski.

Murray is a closer!!!

Can’t help thinking about Coby with what AK will do with him. KC reporter he gushed over Coby.

Doc would be a really good candidate for that Sixers job...

I keep thinking that Wes Unseld Jr. is the guy who ends up on our bench. If Denver pulls this off, it only raises his stock IMO.

The Clippers' body language is terrible. They look defeated.

Yep. Kawhi can only lead with his game too. He’s off and everyone now playing tight.

Nuggs game to lose now. Who would have thought?

If Clippers lose, Kawhi will be thinking why the hell he recruited George?...

Well, he tried a superior player first, but just couldn't fetch him

Doc. All day.

this will be the third time that a doc-coached team has blown a 3-1 lead. it's never happened to anyone else more than once. of course, you have to be up 3-1 in order for that to happen...

he's also blown three 3-2 leads. and an additional game 7 loss at home

that's 7 different playoff series that have ended very badly for doc rivers
