    Jazz are for real this year.  They have been my pick to go to the finals after everyone got hurt in the first round.  I am still amazed how well they are playing.  Congrats to Gobert for his 3rd DPOTY.
    Clippers look off.  Like really off.

    Nets/Bucks game was a fun one to watch.  A security guard ran onto the court to break up the players from fighting.  Never saw that before?  I think he gets fired, lol?

    Very low scoring game but it was definitely fun.  I don't think the Bucks win another game though.
    Yeah the Bucks look like they are spent after that one. I thought it was a tough one to watch. Bad offense and horrible officiating yet again.

    So you've finally come around the Jazz? They're one of the better shooting teams you'll ever see. 
    Every year, like the Bucks, they were great during the season then get destroyed and have an early exit or just can't make it past that one team.

    Watching them this year they are playing so much better.  It passes the eye test.  
    The Jazz? Nah, @wobbie can correct me if I am wrong, but I doubt they've been nearly as good as they've been this year since the Stockton and Malone era....

    Despite Milwaukee winning game 3, it's obvious what any elite team like the Nets should do from a strategic standpoint, let Giannis get his, limit him in the paint when possible and send various defensive schemes on Middleton and Holiday.

    Maybe since AK47.  Don't have to go that far back as Malone/Stockton era?  Since Snyder has been coach and Gobert has been on the team they average 45 wins or so a year.  That's not bad. 3 of the years have been 50 win seasons. This is their 5th year in the playoffs.

    To me they were good in the regular season but couldn't hang in the playoffs.  I've watched it, same as the Bucks.

    I'll praise them this year though.  They look damn good.

    Yeah but they only played 72 games this year. Would've had 60 in a normal year. It's their best winning percentage since '98.

    Yeah, definitely have to go back to Stockton/Malone for a Jazz team this good.
    AK-47 teams were never a one seed I imagine.

    Not arguing that.  They had good teams though under Sloan and AK.  They were 3rd seeds.

    Looking back at those Stockton Malone teams they were beasts only to come up against the mighty Bulls.

    That was the biggest bullshit F2 I’ve ever seen.  He wound up on the damn ball.  His bicep hit him.

    Yep.  I gave the Bucks no chance in this series.  Kyrie out gives them a great chance.

    It also gives KD a chance to show people if he can carry a team on his back or not, which I know he can't.
