Nah. Clips/Spurs is the most exciting. They actually score and play defense in that series. Tongue

Spurs end it tonight for sure. Another disappointing playoffs for LA but they landed the tough draw.

Bucks-Bulls should be good. Chicago is going to come out balls to the wall. Bucks will have to come out strong too otherwise I see them getting down by 10-15 early and struggling to come back.

Any series w/ Lob City will be exciting... Spurs benefit by default. Snicker

Exactly what I was afraid of. They are playing like they are just happy to have taken it 6. As has often been the case this series the Bucks are struggling bad on defense

Horrible quarter and that should put this one to bed. Lack of intensity and they're making Gasol look like Wilt Chamberlain

Greek freak takes out that pasty bastad Dunleavy. Only good play of the half for Milwaukee.

Didn't come out with the proper intensity. Even if they had it wouldn't have mattered tonight, I think everyone knew Chicago would come out strong.

Looking forward to the future for the Bucks. Need Parker to come back healthy and Giannis to develop more and this team will be good next season and for years to come

There has to be some sort of record the Bucks might be breaking tonight.

Just kind of tuning in. It's been 34 minutes and they have a total of 44 points! WTH?

Maybe record for worst playoff loss at home but I even doubt that. Just dreadful play but I figured getting it to 6 was the best they'd do at the start. I was actually expecting game 5 effort to be this flat but they surprised in a big way on Monday.

OKC gets Gators coach Donovan. What do you guys think?
Me, I do not believe Donovan would be my first choice. Those guys need more of an experienced coach I think. I mean NBA experience by the way... There has to be a learning curve now for Donovan for sure. He IS a great coach, but will it translate? I hope it does but I am not sure.

The coaching transition from college to pros hasn't been a good record in the NBA. We'll have to wait and see.

48 min and they could only muster 66 points? That's pretty deflating even for a young team. I wasn't expecting a win, but thought they would have played a little better.

Jury is out for Donovan. KS is spot on regarding the transition between college and pro's for basketball. One thing of note though is the exact same thing seemed to be true for college football coaches going to the NFL but that trend has swung in a big way recently

I hear that the GM didn't consult Westbrook or Durant, that's hard to believe, Billy has the keys to the Ferrari, let's see if he is more than just a good college basketball coach.

Did Clippers live to die another Day or is it the end of the Spurs , I hope it's the latter , I am tired of them and coach Pop

I'd bet on the Spurs in game 7. LA Clips have a history of choking when they are in winning positions. Looking back at this series it should be long over with the Clips winning, it's tied at 3 but LA has been the better team for the most part. It's a tough matchup for the Spurs as Griffin and Jordan are too athletic for the old timers and they don't really have an answer for CP3 either.
