Only watched a couple possessions, but Kawhi seems to be making a point to go directly at Lebron. Not trying to lose him on screens or anything, just drove right past him a couple times in a row. Interesting.

If the Lakers get one game away from the title, I'm breaking into that bubble and coughing on EVERYONE.

Kuzma, Smith, Howard, Waiters and James. What a line up lol if this team wins a championship just give LeBron the GOAT title and be done with it.

Kawhi doesn't look right. Doesn't seem to have enough lift on those legs. Missing short on most shots. PG looks good. Can't gauge this Clips team vs. these bubble Lakers without LouWill and Trez.

The officiating, I'm afraid, looks like it is heavily tilted in favor of Lebron and the Lakers.

Broadcasters may need to consider piping in fake crowd noise for the viewers or something during the playoff games like they did with football in Europe.

This is actually a decent game and yet it feels kind of flat.

Call me crazy, but, Anthony Davis would have looked pretty good in green.

He has the best big man in the league on his team.

Got to admit I like how badly both teams want a game that doesn't count a lick. It's only a good thing for us if the Clips are a credible and fierce rival for the Lakers moving forward.


Edit: wait, this was a real game? LoL. That would have been an entirely different viewing experience had I known. :banghead:

Lebron might play until he's 80. And still be really good. Annoying.

That was a great sequence by Lebron to end the game. Kawhi looks so slow I don’t even know how he scored 28 points in this game. I don’t think the Clippers have enough to fit all the pieces and beat the Lakers.

Yeah but the drop after him is immense. Idk who the third best guy on that team is, but its gotta be the worst out of every playoff team. I just don't buy that team as a champion unless LeBron and AD dominate on a level we have never seen a duo reach before.

Still have faith in Clippers over a 7 game series. They are way more deep. Didn’t even have Montrez or Lou Will out there today.

Anyone but Lakers.

Why is everyone thinking Zion needs to play more? He didn’t even give one ounce of effort on defense. Didn’t grab a single rebound while he was in the game either.

And just ilke that, the Magic are now the 7th seed and the Nets the 8th seed. Can you say Bucks in 3?

At this point, I'm just expecting we stay as the 3rd seed. Raptors also faced Orlando in the 1st round last postseason, dispatching them in 5.
