    Just seems funny to publicly state you are taking the 2 seed verses the 6 seed.

    sixers are only a 6 because “jojo” missed so much time. if he can drag his big ass up and down the court, sixers are a problem.

    I HATE BETTING! it’s a fucking cancer. commercials try to make it look like good clean fun and then cover their asses with the “gambling problem?” fine print. it’s the lure of making money money by doing nothing (cue dire straits) and I’m really tired of EVERY FUCKING LEAGUE flashing in game props. rant over.

    you don't recall how much shit I talked about the Knicks in the past?  This year they're actually good! Anywho...

    I think the Sixers are a horrible matchup for the Knicks but I also think Embiid is toast.

    Lets actually get some picks here.

    Oh and I trust the Celtics up until the conference finals...

    Correct. If Jo is healthy they are the second best team in the whole league besides the stupid Celtics.

    Lakers collapse after half or Denver surge?  Jokic and company remind me of the GS warriors at their peak and when the third came they killed w a barrage of treys and turned tables.

    Lakers need to stop that or it's another sweep.  They looked lost for buckets after the half.  TAKE A FUKKIN LAYUP.  It's ok NOT to shoot a three.

    Nice shot Vincenzo!  He is a local fav of the Knicks fans.  Way to show up!!!

    No playoff Jimmy means no 2nd round for the Heat.

    Well...I mean did you see the last 40 seconds? Ignoring the blatant foul on Maxey, it's frustrating when a ref completely ignores a coach's plea for a timeout--multiple times. That was just an egregious officiating performance. Literally have the timeout granted and they win the game. Incredibly frustrating.

    Nurse doesn't actually signal for the timeout until after the ball is inbounded and Maxey has lost control of it.
    He's standing there with his hands close together ready to call a TO but didn't do so until t was too late. And there was a lot of pushing and grabbing by both sides in those final scrums, playoff basketball, the refs let them play more than in the regular season.

    Nurse and/or Lowry should have called timeout as soon as Brunson's 3 went in so the Sixers could move the ball to the front court, that's something they teach on day 1 of Coaching for Dummies. That was an epic fail by Nurse late in that game and by most of your players as well. A lot of standing around aside from Maxey.

    Maxey clearly has control and two refs are within Nurse's view as he's clearly calling a timeout. They totally blew this one. How else are you supposed to get a timeout? Lol.

    Yeah Lowry should've called timeout at inbounds (and Maxey himself should've called one when this pic was taken)....but Nurse tried for one before it was inbounded too and was ignored as well--granted he wasn't as emphatic as he was in the picture below. But in those situations refs are supposed to look in the coach's direction as a timeout is usually expected there. Horrendous officiating at the worst possible time.

    No doubt the Sixers fucked up the sequence but a coach should not have to beg for a timeout. He called for one, twice. And was ignored.

    From the L2R:

    Hart (NYK) cleanly steals the ball from Maxey (PHI). An attempt to call a timeout by Coach Nurse (PHI) during this play is neither recognized nor granted by the officials; the timeout request is simultaneous to Hart making contact with the ball and PHI not having possession.

    That still shot doesn't tell the whole story on Maxey there he was bobbling the ball while falling to the ground (if he had possession prior then he should have been called for a travel but wasn't as he never had clear possession).

    It's a tough game to lose for sure, and it was a frenetic sequence, but the Knicks showed far more poise in that sequence than the Sixers.
    Just call the timeout and don't even try and inbound that ball.

    You're talking about the second attempt. NBA says they should have granted the first one a few seconds earlier.

    • With 27.2 seconds left (after the Brunson make), Brunson should have been called for a foul for pulling on Tyrese Maxey's jersey as he tried to get free to get the inbounds pass.

    • During this time, "An attempt to call a timeout by Coach Nurse during this play is neither recognized nor granted by the officials" but should have been, according to the report.

    I think I heard the NBA didn't allow it. Probably because they know they fucked it up so badly.

    It will not happen but the Sixers have 48 hours to protest the game. If successful, they'd actually have to replay those last 45 seconds. But there have only been 6 successful protests out of 44 in league history. Actually think they would have a strong case but there is no way in hell Adam Silver would let that happen.


    Can you imagine replaying the last 45 seconds of a playoff game though? haha
