There's a reason why the games are played.

The Heat need to worry about the pacers at full strength they can beat the Heat. And yes the Heat did beat us twice but the first game was at the start of the season and the other was a BTB game the Bucks got to Miami like at 3 am any team would have beat the bucks that game lol

These are Vegas predictions too buddy. Bucks and Lakers are the clear favorites



Everyone knows the Raps are a regular season team. The defense is legit but who is gonna score when the games get tight? Siakam doesnt have that in him. We already know Lowry **** the bed. U trusting Fvv and Og Anunoby? :lol: :lol:

Raps have no chance against the Bucks anyways


Have you watched basketball in the past few years or do you just listen to Stephen A Smith Hot Takes?? :lol: smh


Lowry was great against the Bucks and Warriors which shocked me but he was his same choking self against the Magic and Sixers but Kawhi bailed him out. He started the playoffs with 0pts :lol: :lol: . Lets see if he will have the same performance this playoffs without the Kawhi cushion taking defensive attention away from him this time b/c history isnt on his side at all


you mean like the year before Kawhi joined the team when Lowry shot 51/44/81 with 8.5 ast and 4.5 rbs in the playoffs?

in fact the past 3 years in 42 playoff games Kyle has shot 47/38/81 with superb defense. you have a problem with that? Those are good but not stellar shooting numbers for the regular season but considering how much shooting percentages come down in the playoffs those are in fact elite numbers.

by way of comparison the best shooting PG in the history of the game Steph Curry in the past 3 seasons (54 playoff games and 2 titles) is shooting 46/41/93.

Lowry being a choker is a myth. Has has bad games here and there like every player, and he was hurt for 2 different playoff runs. he also played on a team that was coached by the worst playoff coach i have ever seen (Dwayne Casey) who never understood the concept of putting guys in a position to succeed. he only understood telling them to play harder. let's just say that never went well and everybody on the team looked bad.

i think the top 3-4 teams in each conference are all viable, Lakers definitely took a hit to their depth with their bubble roster

As A Celtics fan I was really looking forward to the Lakers in the playoffs to see Avery Bradley and Rajon Rondo playing together again in big games. Now Rondo is hurt and Bradley didn't go to Orlando. I would still bet on LBJ but I really wanted to see the ex Celtics play in the finals again.

This thread is really backfiring. There is no obvious finals. This isn't like 2017 where it was obviously going to be the Warriors/Cavs.

I still think the Bucks will get out of the East, but it won't be a cake-walk.

The West is between the Clippers/Lakers with the Rockets as a scary dark-horse.

Giannis didn't play against the Suns. Go ahead and look at the boxscore for the Nuggets game while you're at it. We're missing our starting point guard.

But I guess Boston lost 5 out of their last 8, including a loss to Milwaukee who's obviously collapsing in front of our eyes so they must also be in big big trouble.

Nobody is saying they’re collapsing in front of our eyes but good one? No need to get defensive.

Tell me, if you're going to post what you did, without context, what exactly were you trying to imply? I'd love to know.
