You and the media and everyone else too and it is showing its effect on the refs too...It was bad man...The thing is, Cavs are sweeping both teams anyways. Raps might take a game at home, maybe.

Wow...Raps destroyed the Heat in game 7 ! Lowry showed up, Demar showed up and in the absence of Valanciunas, Biyombo more than stepped up .

Now LeBron...

I'm very happy for your boys. I was hoping for this result in game 6, but 7 will have to do. They don't get much rest and they'll need to come down emotionally to get ready for the LeBrons.

Hey buddy. I was Wrong.. The Raps stepped up and handled their business. Congrats..they deserve it. I hope that they are able to push LBJ to the brink.. I am tired of LBJ.. he had numerous opportunites to win titles.. I would rather see some new young blood get a shot

GSW vs OKC . First to defend a bit will win I guess? 60-47 for GSW at the half.


Raps got it done against Miami without Valanciunas because they lost Whiteside and there is no other big there. Cavs have plenty. It will be very tough for the Raps.

OKC could totally steal one here but Durant has gone ice cold...

But they steal it anyways...Good job OKC.

I did pick GSW to win the series but at this time of year a lot comes down to form. OKC has played better basketball in the playoffs than GSW and against a far better team than the Warriors have had to face. Golden State didn't finish the year too strong and with injuries in the playoffs they've been up against it. After the game tonight OKC now has a good chance at pulling the upset.

Unlike Mon night. KD is on fire. GSW cannot distance themselves from OKC on the scoreboard. We're in the 2nd Q. Let's see if halftime cools him off any. If he's still hot in the 2nd half, GSW could be down 0-2.

Curry scored 15 points in around two minutes and that was that...Has to be a record of some sort, no?

And KD did the opposite. Went completely cold in the 2nd half and nobody else on OKC seemed interested in putting up any points. GSW blows the doors off and OKC must hold home court if they stand any chance of getting to the finals.

Great comeback game by Step and the boys.. I still have the DUBS in 6 or 7(This is a fanscinating serries(the Splash Brothers, Draymon and 6-7 and up 3 point shooting crew vs KD, Russell and the boys)) the ratings have to be CRAZY .. Finaly I got the DUBS beating Kang James and his crew(I am not impressed by the Cavs wins vs the Pistons, the Hawks or the Raps) in 6 or 7 games..

That was a big time rebound game by the Warriors. With the way they lost game 1 and the fact that Bogut is banged up (which figures to be big due to OKC's size) I honestly thought OKC may be able to take game 2 which would have probably ended the series. Instead the Warriors looked tremendous last night and now the pressure is on OKC to hold the homecourt advantage. Once OKC won game 4 of the last series I figured they would find a way to win one more in SA and win the series. This time I don't think that happens, so OKC needs both games at home or they probably don't win.

I disagree with you regarding Cleveland. 9-0 in the playoffs with most being blowouts is extremely impressive even if the teams aren't great. OKC lost a game to the weak Mavs, Golden State lost a game to the weak Rockets and Blazers (granted injury was a factor there). Cleveland is playing with a major chip on their shoulders and Lebron's sidekicks and role players are playing lights out. I think Cleveland would beat OKC if that's the matchup. If it's the Dubs you got to favor Golden State but that could be an incredible series.

One thing about the Cavs, they can really turn on the D and suffocate you for 5-6 minutes and there goes the game. They remind me of the old Bulls like that a bit...where they used to turn the D up at will...

Raps put up 60 1st half points. Did have an 18 point lead, but that's down to about 10 early in the 3rd.

LBJ is such a whining flop drama queen, I hope he gets fined for his over dramatic flips during the lost to the Raptors

my point was that the pistons and the hawks both had their chances to win maybe two games but didn't hold their composure late in the game. Yesterday, the Raptors had a big lead and the Cavs made their run. The Raps held their composure

The Cavs finally lost

It was a great game. Demar, Lowry and Biyombo were on fire. Love and Kyrie had a combined 16 pts. No way they can win a game w/ that low production from starters.

Casey roasts the refs

Casey is correct. His team is getting no calls. I get it, it is a respect issue but a little consistency would not hurt.
They played Kyrie the correct way first time in this series. Easier said than done but they did it so kudos to Raps. They have been at the butt end of many jokes in the US media but those guys did not get the 2nd spot in the East by chance. They can play some ball. They ARE overmatched but they are trying.

RE: 2015-2016 NBA Playoffs
The Canucks have definitely surprised this season. I figured the ugly playoff losses the last couple years would have more of an effect. I've rooted against them all playoffs, wanted Paul George and the Pacers to advance and then was hoping for the Heat and Cavs ECF. Hopefully they don't spoil what figures to be a decent NBA finals by somehow beating the Cavs. Games like last night are one of those where Lebron needs to say F it and shoot 30 times. It's not his comfort zone but when the supporting cast is that cold he has to take over more.
