    I know you scared..
    Nope.  Cavs play "playoff" basketball.  Anything during the regular season doesn't matter.

    The Celtics defend the perimeter better than just about every team in the league...

    As much as I would love Celtics in 5, or even better 4...  Chris is right, the Cavs aren't going away lightly.  Lebron plays playoff basketball.  Remember the Cavs also got squashed in game 1 against the Pacers, at home.  Game 1 - one game - means nothing.

    GO CELTS!

    Sure, one game means nothing but looks like the greens wanted it more..

    I was kidding about five games. I think they can win the series though.

    Warriors get the first game in Rockets house. That has to have them as favourites now to close this out in 6

    I'm amazed how predictable the Rockets offense is. As a lifelong Warriors fan I thought we'd win this in 6 but after watching last night I see this as a 5 game series, possible sweep. People want to claim the Warriors are ruining basketball with their free flowing motion offense where everyone gets involved? No it's actually the Rockets offense that could ruin basketball, 4 guys standing around doing nothing while Harden or Paul dribble for 20 seconds. It's the style of offense that for me nearly ruined the NBA in the late 90's and early 2000's. Not that it's happening but a Rockets vs Cavs Finals would be grotesque. It would essentially be 3 guys involved and the other 7 standing in one spot. I miss the 80's and early 90's style of basketball, post players, guys that functioned in the mid mid range and wings that could play off the ball. Cool to see the Warriors dominating these playoffs with mid range shooting, total throwback in that regard.

    And the Rockets don't even attempt to play defense.  That was a painful game to watch last night.  I thought Houston might have a chance, but it doesn't look like it after that game last night.

    I know it's tough for athletes to lose games, but can the Knicks just fucking tank the right way for one season? Don't even know who can make an immediate impact at 9th pick.

    The Cavs' mid season acquisitions tonight:


    Hill: 3 points

    Hood: 2 points

    Nance: 0 points

    Clarkson: DNP CD

    That's some fine GM work.

    The have certainly not performed, but I question the Cavs system as more of the problem. For the most part, it's LBJ bouncing a ball with 4 guys standing around waiting for a pass, similar to what Houston referred back to in Game 1 of their series (Harden /Paul with ball and everyone else watching).
     A good team (Boston) will beat that. Cavs should win the next game at home, but Boston's confidence has probably never been higher. Can't see them losing this series now being up 2-0

    I agree with this.  

    When the Cavs have actually played like a team they are lights out but that isn't often... 

    The Celts are playing hungry and as a team and deserve to win against the Cavs.

    Game 2 was over after Lebron got belted.  They would have won that game.  The rest of his team should have stepped up because LBJ was clearly out of it.
