That sideline inbound camera angle makes it look like NBA 2K30. :o

Kawhi is such a beast. I really wish he would've just ran it back for 1 season

You do realize they are missing Lou Will and Montrez right? Lou Will is a 20ppg safety valve for PG and Kawhi while Harell has historically owned AD in head to head matchups.

Both these teams have ballstopping tendencies. A lot of one-on-one, a lot of overdribbling. I guess this is a danger of having two clear superstars on each team, but it spreads to everyone else on the court as well. A really good defence like Milwaukee or Toronto would have a chance against these guys.

Well the lakers and clippers play a lot of iso ball. I think playoff defense can slow these guys down. It be fun. Out defense is better imo.

This bubble is not too shabby. I like the video wall with gifs of fans. I was expecting a boring G league look/feel.

What a terrible call after the review on the out of bounds. Looked pretty obvious that Davis was going to come up with the rebound until Green knocked it out of his hand.

No, after the first glance at replay I thought it's off ad. Green made him lose control but ad had the last touch.

Where did you find this information? Head to head AD averages 29 points and 10 rebounds. His team has won once more too.

This isn't meant to be a reaction to this game, but I think Kawhi needs to defer to PG more. Or at the very least the offence needs to run through PG more, even if Kawhi gets the shot. Both dudes are killer in the playoffs, but PG needs to feel comfortable out there. Great game but if he had 5 more shots I think the Clips get it.

0-2 so far with my predictions.

Today's games:
Magic over Nets
Trail Blazers over Grizzlies
Wizards over Suns
Bucks over Celtics
Spurs over Kings
Mavericks over Rockets
