Tonight, on only 76 shots & 23 FTAs, Cleveland scored 117 points. That is a .66 TS% -- unreal!

For me those west first rounds are boring as hell except Jazz - Clippers.
As for today's games Cavs again lost huge adv in last quarter and won only by 6. I hope other teams are noticed it that everything is possible against this years Cavs

Dave Fizzdale stuck up for his Grizzlies not getting any free throws. Terribly officiated game

Kawhi was 19-19 in FTs

Yeah, Paul George is crossing the line from "leader" to "jerk".

I'll be interested to hear from all the Paul George boosters here when he moves to a different team next year & they don't get better.

That said, he did have a very good game last night. In fact, except for Turner, the Pacers played pretty well. They put up numbers on offense that would usually lead to a win. But Cleveland's shooting was incredible; it was impossible to overcome. They got 97 points out of 76 shots -- a .64 efg%.

Malcolm Brogdon would be a terrific 3rd guard for us. He's a good enough shooter to play SG alongside Wall, and he's enough of a PG to run the offense alongside Beal. And he's a good defender who can guard the opposition's best guard to conserve the energy of either Wall or Beal.

Bucks are sticking with the Raptors. If Toronto loses tonight, it'll be tough to come back and win 4 out of 5 games, three of them on Milwaukee's home court.

Crossing...or completely jumped over the line then looked back and pissed on the line. He is out of control. Its not leadership if no one is following you. Paul George is basically roasting everyone and sounding like a jerk doing it.

I didnt think about this before because the media didnt "remind me", but Rondo is returning to Boston and is thus...inspired.

Its obvious that Thomas tries to goad refs into getting calls. Zach Lowe was talking about this (in general terms) on his podcast with JVG. JVG was saying he hoped refs would never call fouls that were obvious attempts to trick them.

I would take him...but of the 3s that I would want...I would take Gordon Hayward before him. I know he is a lot more talented than Gordon but i think Gordon would mesh better with us because he wouldn't try to usurp Walls leadership with crazy comments like..."i gotta take the last shot"...while shooting 0-15 within the last 15 seconds of a game ending...which makes him delusional and unclutch

I was just thinking that having Butler, Lebron, Wall, and Giannis all advancing to the 2nd round isn't that surprising since those 4 are almost certainly the 4 best players in the East at the moment.

Yes Wiz needs guys who plays team basketball and accept Wall's lidership. Gordon would be my pick too but he won't leave Utah
