    Zero points for Curry on first half????
    Game is tied though.
    wow, impressive comeback from the warriors and curry. Thought Houston was finally gonna take them down this year.
    Rockets=90's Jazz
    How so? That team made back to back NBA Finals. This team can't get out of the second round and plays boring-ass basketball.

    I was going to make the same reply but I then I thought he may not be talking about what round they make it to. He may be talking about how, try as they might, they just can't beat the best team (Warriors in the case of the Rockets, Jordan's Bulls in the case of the 90's Jazz). And I think you saying that the Rockets play boring-ass basketball (which they do) strengthens the comparison to the super-boring Malone/Stockton Jazz.

    Thats how i took it too.  They’ll never get over the hump especially with Chris Paul’s salary climbing to 43m in three years. 

    These Rockets would probably take those Jazz in a series tho.  Late 90s NBA teams were pretty awful.

    Where are the 76er fans?

    So that was one hell of a weekend for basketball.

    Lakers hire Jason Kidd as a head coach(cough cough), two great game 7's!

    All those years of the Raptors exiting early in the playoffs all changed because why?  No Lebron in the east?  The addition of Kawhi? Change the head coach?  Getting rid of DeRozan?

    This whole year further cemented my feelings that Kawhi is one of the best players in the NBA.

    76ers, this was yours to lose and you did just that.  Hopefully you guys can learn from it.  I noticed Gasol speaking to Embiid at the end of the game.  Hope he had some good wisdom for him.  The sixers are still missing a piece.  If they find it they'll be great.

    Portland vs Denver.  What a great game this was too.  Shooting sucked but what a great game.  Both Curry brothers play against each other.  Shouldn't be much of a series but if Durant is out for a game or two and Green gets another T this could be a series in the making but I won't ever count out the Warriors because of Curry and Thompson.

    Highlights from everyone else?

    It doesn't help the Sixers that they play a guard that can't shoot. Spacing is everything. Never seen a center that spaces better than the guard.

    Lets not ignore that Kawhi decided to rip off the ending of Teen Wolf with that shot....

    OMG that is so funny!

    I also wanted to bring up the great play of Siakm.  This guy turned it up and found out that he was a project.  Good for him.

    McCollum went off too and forgot to mention him. 

    Not sure what the injury to Hood is but he was another player that turned it up.

    Still upset about that?
    Actually, I'd love Donovan Mitchell on the Sixers. He's be the perfect 6 man off the bench.

    Nothing to be ashamed of Philly...it too a great shot and 3 bounces for Toronto to eliminate you.  And after game 1, Milwaukee barely broke a sweat against Boston.

    I'm at tankathon.com and the best the Knicks got after 10 tries was 3rd. All the other times they got 4th

    The only robbing will be Kawhi stealing the ball from Giannis lol
