Lou Williams brought them back from early deficit.

He didn’t hook up too much on the pick and roll with Harrell but Lakers let him get good looks on pull ups off left hand dribble, which he prefers.

Warriors couldn’t really stop this combo in the first round and tonite he was rolling.

Then Kawhi got hot. He looks fully healthy now, got some good lift on a dunk or two.

Lou Williams is a streaky scorer..if he shoots enough his efficiency will drop. in the first round he avg 22 pg on 53%TS.. If we let Lou Williams to beat us thats the best we could ask for.

Siakam is just a beast. He and Doncic are going to be my two favorite watches on League Pass.

Thybulle on the 76ers is very nice defensively. Gambles a lot but already comfortable defending stars.

Ja Morant is the real deal.

Jabaro Parker needs to get in shape and lose weight.

It's way early but the Net's are 1-3, same as Warriors.

Despite Kyrie's hero ball numbers.

Of course Nets have been way more competitive than the Warriors even in losses.

Would be funny if the Nets didn't even make the playoffs in the East this year and the main change is Kyrie for Dlo.

Philly is the real deal in the east. They have 3 bigs!! Embiid, Horford, & O’Quinn. After the blazer game they def have what it takes to battle the LA teams.

Plus they added Deandre Jordan.

I went and saw the Pacers v Nets in Brooklyn the other night, and a few things stood out for me.

1. The Pacers are good defensively, and Brogdan is way better than I thought he was. He’s a lead guard now and plays so under control.

2. Kyrie looked like he didn’t want to speak to his teammates and just wanted to go 1 on 1 every time he had the ball. He’s great at it, but not a fan.

3. Lavert was great, but Dinwiddie sucked ass. Spencer looks lost out there especially when he is playing next to Irving.

Dion Waiters doing edibles and freaking out on the team plane is hilarious.

Portland doesn't have Harkless, Aminu, Meyers Leonard, and Turner anymore. That's a lot of length they no longer have contesting shots.

None of those guys are great, but 5hey all have size or length.

If the Lakers stay healthy, they will win the title this season. They look scary good.

I got the Clips winning it all, when it actually counts. Hands down. Can't wait to see them ruin LeBron.

Their rim protection is like nothing I've seen really. With Davis, Javale and Dwight, they have teams just chucking up nonsense around the rim. Add in Lebron, Danny Green and Rondo on defense, and they are just scary good. Even Kuzma is long and is getting better at closing out.

The West playoffs will be a belter this season. Hoping the Jazz or Nuggets come out of the West somehow.
