Jaylen Brown is much, much better than I thought he was.

Legit two way player who has a variety of tricks in his bag that he uses at the right times.

Was interesting seeing Toronto trying to go small and Boston using bully ball to get whatever they wanted over the final 10 mins of the game.

If the Celtics and Lakers make the finals I won’t have a team to cheer for. I really don’t want either team to win anything. These playoffs have not been my friend so far.

I don't like Boston (mostly because of Pierce and too many of their fans + their homer broadcaster), but among the ringless nba's best players, he is undoubtedly one of the most deserving one. Hard not to root for him

I'm enjoying Houston's misery by piling on the Westbrook hate on the general board.

Currently arguing how Fat Lever was the better player.

Jokic went alright today for a guy who plays a worthless position.

Having 6"5 guys at center is not going to get it done in the play-offs. I thought that's been pretty obvious until this season happened.

Harrell has been hugely disappointing so far, can’t believe he compared himself to Rodman

It all depends on whomever's bias you're trying to confirm

unbelievable that an energy guy who gets his numbers from exploiting bad regular season defense is useless in the playoffs :o

just hoping we don't make up a reason to overpay the guy at this point

Houston is a hot mess. They are stuck with 2 guys who are stat padders that don't play defence and will be getting paid over $40 million each into their mid 30's.

They have Eric Gordon on another massive overpay. They sold the farm for Westbrook and have almost no chance of picking up any promising/cheap players for the next 5 years via the draft. They also have the most unbalanced roster in the league. They are screwed, I'd genuinely prefer our current situation to theirs.

Kemba is **** brutal in this game. 4-17 in what is now a very close game.

Celtics fans learning the perils of clutch Kemba that we have experienced the last 5 years

Just can't get it done in big games

You hate to see it

Dodged a huge bullet not paying him the super max

How funny would a Nuggets Vs Heat finals series be?

With LA #1 and LA #2 and Boston being billed as the teams to beat, having two smaller market teams steal the limelight would be hilarious.

And probably worst case scent for the NBA!!

Doc Rivers deserves serious pressure. When a team keeps losing series like this, the coach is a big part

Indeed. Rivers playing Zubac only 14 minutes in game 7 is inexcusable. He gave Jokic a much harder time in previous games than Harrell did. All in all, what a choke by the Clippers man. Gotta give Denver a ton of credit, they've shown tremendous grit in these playoffs.

Also, gotta love that the Clippers still have the longest conference finals drought in all of sports, keeping our beloved Hornets in 2nd place for that ugly record.

I love when cocky fanbases get their **** kicked in. Milwaukee, Boston, Toronto, Clippers, Lakers fans are absolutely horrible. Denver and Miami fans are great. Here's hoping for that finals.

Us not signing Kemba to the max is looking good so far. He has played poorly and I doubt will improve given he is ageing ad would have to all of a sudden become a STAR again. I just wish we would have gotten SOMETHING even a 2nd rounder thrown in for him

I like Doc Rivers but he's gotta go. It's a shame we won't get LA vs LA.
