    2019 NBA Playoffs

    It's that time of year again!

    I'm currently watching Game 2 of the 76ers-Nets series (Philly vs Brooklyn), and it is EXCELLENT. Great contrast of styles.

    Do we have to asterisk a series without King James?

    A Finals series? No. It's valid whether or not LeBron's there.

    He may not even be the best basketball player on Earth anymore. Giannis and Harden have both had absolutely insane seasons this year.

    Warriors... EPIC collapse vs the Clippers in Game 2. Had a 31-point lead (!!!) in the 3rd quarter and still lost.

    How do you even DO that? Mind blown.

    Video of the Clippers last night, just as the fourth quarter gets underway:

    More Americans wanted Hillary Clinton to be President than wanted Donald Trump.

    Donald Trump has never had a wife he didn't cheat on.

    Which is why my money's not on the Clippers.

    Most of the eight first-round playoff series are pretty much decided at this point... one team is up either 3-0 or 3-1, or has won it outright already (Boston). Only series in real doubt is San Antonio vs Denver.

    So, barring some incredible comeback(s), the second round looks like this:

    Milwaukee vs Boston
    Toronto vs Philly
    Houston vs Golden State
    Portland vs SA or Denver

    These should all be good/competitive series, esp. Houston vs GS.

    Sidenote: Some smartass sportscaster said the other day that the second-round series of Houston vs Golden State would be the NBA Championship.

    I think that's a bit overstated, now that the East finally has some very good non-LeBron teams. Any of the top four East teams (Bucks, Raptors, Sixers, and Celtics) playing at their best will be far from pushovers in the Finals. Though okay, maybe I'd still bet on the Rockets or Warriors (cautiously).

    Thoughts?

    I think well be in for a great finals; likely Warriors-Bucks. Id like to see Houston break through but Warriors look to have clicked the past couple of games and Harden has shown some vulnerability - horrible shooting game 2 games ago and the end of the the last game, he did not look sharp. Ive been working a lot though and havent been able to follow real closely.

    Good lawd... Damian Lillard beats Oklahoma City (and ends the series!) with a 37-foot buzzer-beater!! All while dropping 50 points on trash-talking Russell Westbrick's head.

    Portland is fo' REAL, man.

    LOVE the shot as a fan, but as a coach, I'd be wondering about having twelve seconds to set up, and THAT'S the shot you take?!?

    All good when they go in, though.

    He hasn't taken a lot, but he has some insanely high % on 30+' shots this season. At least I think I saw that on the highlights this morning, when I wasn't paying much attention.

    Still, I doubt that was the play any coach would call, or hope for, in that situation.

    It's a bad shot for everyone except him and Steph Curry, pretty much.
