No games being played tonight.

Doesn’t matter, this is the last one of the season for us in all likelihood. Rest Luka, KP, Burke, and DFS.

I hate to be an excuses guy, but how the refs and the NBA could throw Porzingis out of game 1, but then Montrezl and Morris both avoid any sort of punishments is beyond me. Seems pretty shady

The NBA spent so much cash getting the bubble going. With no ticket sales to boost the revenue, the only way to earn will be viewership + ads. Advertisers and sponsors want an LA vs LA conference finals. Adds to the narrative. Makes them some cash.

It looks like Sunday. Hopefully, KP will be back because Luka needs help.

The Meniscus tear does mean he's not going to play for awhile, but it depends on the severity as to how long. It's safe to rule him out for the Clippers for sure.

The prognosis for a light tear (which is what it sounds like) is simply rest. Hard to know how severe it is though.

Correct.

Sorry if I made it sound terrible, but unless Luka pulls off a miracle he's done for the playoffs. He did play 2 games with the injury.

I wouldn't mind one more Luca miracle.

Is that wrong?

He won't be playing for several months. Nobody will risk anything with him.

Is it the same injury Amare had? I also doubt it is light. Word is possibly surgery is required.

Brad Townsend: Tim Hardaway Jr. has popped up on the injury report (in this case the Mavs’ media notes) as questionable for tomorrow’s Game 6 with a cervical strain.

seems like KPs body regenerates slowly and not enough to keep up with playoff pace.

I say keep them all out. KP, DFS, Hardaway, Luka... let them rest. This season was already an overwhelming success

Clippers are favored to win by 10.5 points tonight.
All of the previous games they had been favored by 6.5 points.

Win or lose, the season has been exciting for us, and we can improve this off-season.
