We're the most battle tested team that's left. We beat a surging hot Blazers team and we beat a team that mainly shoots 3 pointers which was said to be our kryptonite. I think we're really prepared for the Clippers or Nuggets.

What’s great is we get to rest a little, who knows maybe the Denver Clipper series goes to 7 games.
Yeah you have 17 titles....but winning the majority of them over 40 years ago is meh.

Now it’s time for the real nba finals. Kawhi vs Lebron is the greatest playoff matchup we’ve seen and will see in a long time

I would not bank on them winning game 6. Expectations are a bitch and Lou/PG aren’t know for that. Denver could force game 7 short of Kawhi dominating to make sure they don’t prolong it

Almost like the kobe/shaq days.

Difference is AD is grateful to be winning and here in this spot. He suffered many Ls before. Kobe and Shaw both had not won and took their lumps mainly together from Utah and the Spurs, so there was no big brother vibe there really

So hey can KCP get some love? He was the primary defender on Dame in round 1 and averaged double digits in the role Bradley was supposed to have. Shot 40% from 3 in round 1 and 47% in round 2. Dude quietly just playing the Derek Fisher or Mario Chalmers role so damn good

We're only halfway there. The big mountain is still left to scale.
LeBron can you do it? Are you capable of even winning one game from the hobos?

Show us bron.

This next series is for all the marbles (no offense to whoever is left in the East).

This is what we got Lebron, and traded away all our youth for. I'm pretty confident we'll get a good series out of Lebron. I am curious to see how AD does. Lebron can dominate, but he's gonna need big-time play out of AD if they are gonna get it done. Gonna need good play out of everyone.

I honestly think Lebron and AD are the better 1-2 punch. Not VASTLY....but it's a clear advantage IMO. But AD has to show he can do his thing once nerves get tight, and pressure starts to suffocate. This is really his first rodeo. I'm worried about him.

And after the 1-2 punch, I think we are significantly out-matched. Too many guys are just way too spotty. Dunno...wanna say we got this, but guys have to step up. Most of all...AD. The guy has to stand and be counted now.

Job isn't finished. And that's exactly what he'd tell them.

I agree after our 1-2 we are significantly outmatched.
BATTLE TESTED PLAYOFF LOU AND HARREL AND BEVERLY AND ZUBAC AND the rest are way TOO much to handle for our team.
Also they are saying everywhere that kawai is the best in the nation and can do no wrong.
So that itself should make our 1-2s evenly ranked. If not out ranked honestly.

Vegas has them winning the championship. I know a few have already mortgaged their homes and sold their children's college funds for letting it ride on these championship hearted Clippers as it would be an easy money gamble.

I would if I had the money.

Markieff Morris has been a pleasant surprise. If him and Rondo can contribute the way they are doing right now, I feel a lot more confident facing the Clippers' reserves. The starters with LeBron/AD might come out a slight positive but the bench has to protect those leads.
