    Bode, Spurs probably won't make the finals because of GS and their own (Spurs) injuries, but for a team that is consistently solid and also makes the playoffs, there aren't many teams with fewer superstars than they have. But keep acting like an ass it's what you do best. The Spurs are one of the few teams that have consistency all the way from ownership to the bottom level of the management.

    Hoping Washington can win game 7. Wall and Beal are fun to watch

    It would be different but it won't happen.

    Cavs will walk into the finals without losing a game.

    Mike Clown is a joke. I know the Cavs didn't have great pieces around LeBreezy in his first Cavs run, but he was badly out-coached in the playoffs time after time. Warriors fans are finding out the hard reality having this guy as your head coach.

    Spurs have whizzed away a massive lead and are now in danger of losing this one after leading by 23 or something like that here in the second half.

    The Spurs have come back from worse losses than that one, but still that has to be demoralizing. Huge lead, on the road and a big chance to put Steph Curry's cocky ass on the ropes and they let them up.

    Pretty simple really: Lost Kawhi, @GSW, and GSW is just an amazing team. Still demoralizing for SAS with the lead at the half, yes. But the Spurs don't strike me as a team that will get too up or down with the outcome of one game.

    You're forgetting one key factor.

    Zaza Pachulia - Dirty player or lumbering oaf?

    I think it's a little bit of both. He has a well- deserved reputation around the league already. But I don't think he was doing anything dirty on this particular play. I don't think he's agile enough to pull off something like that intentionally. He closed out hard and momentum took over. Sucks for the Spurs, and basketball fans in general. Kawhi was amazing prior to the injury yesterday.

    Ugh, I quickly remembered why I dont watch the halftime show for NBA games, Shaq has zero sense of humor and doesnt know what a joke is, its either that or he just isnt bright enough to get the concept of humor.

    GSW SAS and CLE BOS is what I expected. Game 2 is tonight and then the WCF has a 3 day break to let the ECF get 2 games in. Do they typically schedule like this? Couldn't recall how they've done it recently but thought the WCF winner may get more rest before the Finals over the ECF winner than a day (depending on how long these series go).

    I got the Warriors in five and the Cavs in four. I think the Wizards would have provided a tougher challenge to Cleveland in the ECF. The Cavs are a bad matchup for Boston. They can throw multiple defenders at Isaiah Thomas, hide Kyrie somewhere else defensively, and beat Boston to death on the boards. Oh, and that Lebron guy is pretty good too.

    The draft lottery is tonight at 7:30 CST. Big night for the Lakers, who will either get a top three pick in 2017 or lose their 2017 and 2019 first rounders.

    If Kawhi comes back I could see the Spurs taking 2 games. The Celtics have no chance against the cavs who have had 10 days of rest.
    I really hope the lakers pick ends up being #4+ so it goes back to the 76ers just because I hate LaVar Ball. If boston gets a top 3 pick do they trade the pick?

    As a huge Celtics fan, I hope not.

    Hopefully get Fultz or Jackson and still have cap space I believe to go after a big fish in FA.
