Seth Curry will be played off the floor against the Nets/Bucks and any potential finals opponent but he's turned out to be a pretty useful piece against average to worse teams like the Wizards. He should be useful against the Hawks too.

Guys stepped up. Proud of 25, Tobi and Seth. We have something with Maxey.

Can't count on the NYK to do **** right. Absolutely cooked.

Maxey has improved at about the same rate as Shake has regressed

I worry about the Hawks match up without Joel.

Dwigh is gonna get murder by Young/Cappela Picks and Ben is unplayable at the 5 with Cappela out there. They have a lot of shooting, i would not like to be Doc and having to solve that.

Defensively we match up fine with them. Offensively, I have my reservations on if we can keep up with Trae.

I think Trae needs to see Matisse and/or Ben exclusively. No switching.

Knicks has Reggie Bullock on Young. Bullock is like a little better than Korkmaz. Simmons, Thybulle, Hill will be a whole different level. Key is Bogdan though, he's really good.

We need to target Trae on every offensive possesion. Ben and Tobi should take turns bullying him

Glad it's not just me ... Some of the hot takes are rediculous. It's the same posters who all said Maxey was trash after a few bad games mid season lolz

The only watchable game this series.
Great game by our guys!

It was a blowout in the end, but I didn't think we looked good until mid 3rd quarter. First half was very hectic. Rookie putting us on his back.
If Joel isn't ready to play we're in trouble, unfortunately.
