Nuggets are most vulnerable to dynamic guards. Clippers don't have one. Neither do the Lakers.

Jamal Murray is so insanely clutch. With Jokic, PG, and Kawhi on the floor he's been the best player.

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.

on the other hand, kemba was bad and miami got huge games from crowder, herro and dragic

Amazing how Nuggs reflect the toughness of their coach.

With that said it seems like Craig from MIA would be that guy. Maybe it’s Unseld from DEN though.

Still nuts to me that the Nuggets beat this Clippers team 3 times in a row.

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

speaking of which, the whole kawhi vs PG vs jimmy debate just got reheated



Well, I never got the PG versus Jimmy debate. Jimmy was always superior in my view.
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.

Dyamic playmakers and shot makers was the big difference. Clippers had too many one dimensional playಈrs against a dynamic set of offensively talented players. Looks like the Lakers will have the same issues.

Man we have the same mastermind that build this Denver team that's in the WCF.

Man how **** awesome is that? I remember the years we would just pray and pray for GarPax to be fired. Now look at us.

The Clippers tried to load-manage their way to the title and failed.

Maybe the RS isn't irrelevant after all.

Tim Connelly might have a word about that. :lol:

Believe Karnisovas was a big reason for the drafting of Jokic.

Want the Nuggs to take down the Lakers so bad.

Jimmy eating Lebron’s soul would be satisfying too.

Anyone else thinking right now, "at least we aren't Clippers fans"?

I feel bad for them, but I also have to laugh at how you couldn't even script this level of disappointment for them.
I'm DONE doubting Jimmy Butler.

And you should be too.

I never understood why Kawhi wanted to leave the Raptors. It was just a great situation for him. Made no sense.
