GAME 3 Western semis - 6 p.m. TNT - McNuggets get fried

Game 2 was just what these guys needed - a reminder they cannot coast against anybody. Team completely healthy, Jokic questionable with wrist, another player out with knee. Vegas believes - 7.5-9 point favorites tonight.

Clippers in a romp.

Oh, and here is respect to Ms. McNuggets:

I doubt we're done learning how to "handle adversity," as Kawhi puts it. As somebody on Cowherd said today, the break might have affected the Clippers more than any other team.

Just as we FINALLY had the team in place in March, the COVID plug got pulled. Then the restart: With Trezz missing and Lou out at tittybars and Shamet dinged up--our bench is still a mess, so when Kawhi got double-teamed and PG couldn't carry us, there was no Plan C. And the starters aren't a well-oiled machine either with all the time Bev has missed.

The Bubble isn't Disney World, my brothers--it's Valley Forge.

I just hope the clippers themselves don't share the same mood.

Not going to lie, I'm nervous. I just see giving a playoff game away with zero effort and a too-cool-for-school attitude coming back to bite this team in the ass.

Denver is a better team than this tweet gives them credit for.

They deserve respect.

I'll believe it when I see it. I just hope the clippers don't share my mindset and that guys mindset. Who cares what we think it's the players that have to play. I hope the players and coaches are not underestimating the nuggets

Kawhi needs to read the defense a little better. To give the ball up and reposition. While all this is happening our shooters have to be ready.

Jokic and this flopping is ridiculous and why I don't respect his game. Too damn big for all this flopping

Dude snaps his head back like he's Harden. Him and Embiid both get ridiculously soft calls all the time.

Went aren't we "testing" Jokic's wrist? Why aren't we trying to "Block" his shots. It's playoff BB. Let's see how bad that wrist is.

The referees are not officiating Jokic fairly.

He can't pick up a personal foul on us every time he feels like dribbling and jerking his head back.

Jokic's normally one of my favorite players in the league, but I hate him right now because of all the flopping he's doing.

At some point, the refs have to say....no, I'm not just gonna rack up fouls on the Clippers cuz youre on the wing jerking your head back.

If they don't do it, he has no incentive to not do it all the damn time.

I think it's safe to say that Kawhi is back.

This lineup should never see the court in a playoff game.
