    I don't find time to watch a wide array of games but I watch the extended highlights for my adopted team the nuggets. Let's go nuggs!

    Dont think hell sign the extension if we cannot give him a team ...and I we couldn't get Dirk a 2nd star, not sure how well get Luca one ...

    Gsw may have been underrated defensively, but cannot compare them with the great defensive teams if years gone by, and also dont think nba rules allow for more physical, tougher defense

    Suns sweep the Nuggets. Chris Paul turning back the clock with an utterly masterful series.

    At this rate, it's a race of who hobbles to the title.

    Kawhi with a suspected ACL tear.

    Chris Paul with Covid.

    Harden and Kyrie with their continuing injury issues.

    Embiid with his dodgy knee.

    Mike Conley with his hamstring.

    True story. Playoff-P is maybe for real? :D
    I guess that was Uthas big chance. Do not see them win one of the two remaining games when Khawi is back.

    Classical Doc game. I mean I really do not get it why someone like him (or Budenholzer) still are managers for a team that want to win the championship - I guess the past showed already that they can not make the right decisions in important games (at least not always)...

    There was no pressure on the Clips in this game - they were meant to lose.  Now they have to win game 6 or 7 as they want "first conference final in our history" ... pressure is on ... Let's see how they do - and I hope, for his sake, the Klaw is healthy - but the rumors are ACL ...

    I wonder where Doc lands on all time great NBA coaches?  I just think he's overrated ... he's had so many great teams and just can never get over the hump, bar that one time.

    That is true and a valid point. I missed that with the ACL but without Khawi I think you are right. There is a higher chance that George is becoming Playoff-p again than that he will lead them to an other victory. On the other hand, if Khawi can play I do not see that Utah will win two games in a row.

    I also think that he is overrated and you are absolutely right about that. In my view he isn't able to improve a real good team.
    But NBA just works like every other league where "bad" managers/coaches (or lets say managers/coaches which already had their peak) get employed again and again by good teams. I really don't understand that.

    Great game 7 there. KD with another monster game, but the Bucks came through.

    @LeTallecWiz who is this Valar Morghulis fellow creating all the trouble with the Mavs?

    Game 1 of the WCF today. Kawhi out for the Clippers and Chris Paul out for the Suns.

    Clips have gone from strength to strength through these playoffs after a terrible start. They're the team that gave us the most trouble in regular season too.

    Now I don't know how they'll be without Kawhi for an entire series (though he may come back), but they've done pretty well without him over the last couple of games. Interesting if that small ball lineup that Lue has gone with will work that well with the Suns. Suns are incredibly balanced and adaptable.

    That said, this Chris Paul Covid situation is a serious bummer for us. Cam Payne has been great in a backup role for us so far, but he can't replicate Paul's incredible game management and overall IQ. Really hoping Paul tests negative soon and doesn't miss more than Game 1.

    I think you spelled his name wrong.
    He's some gambler from Vegas that Cuban made "shadow GM" because "vegas is normally winning" or whatever logic is used.
    Seems like his presence pissed off Nelson, pissed off Doncic, and kinda gave Carlilse his way out (I think he goes back 'home' - either Boston or Indiana).

    Suns romp, but to be expected ... Clippers have started every series slow until they figure out how to slow down the other team.  Let's see if they can do it here.

    Hawks surprise again, beating Sixers in 7.
    Ben SImmons took 3 shots in the 4th quarter of the entire series.  HE passed up a dunk to pass yesterday ... and even Embiid called it the turning point of the game.
    Doc's tone even changed about him.  He needs a fresh start, just like FUltz did, because I don't think he can continue there.  He's their weakest link ... just not sure where else he can go.  What team team needs a PG that's scared to shoot, can't hit FTs but is a great defender and will create great opportunities for teammates?
