54 rebounds, maybe I was wrong about a sweep.

Looks like Denver may be the second best team out there this year.

I love how all of a sudden Doc is a bad coach.
Doc has always been an alright coach that gets more praise because he won a title. Should've had more with Boston, but isn't a great coach, hence the one title. Has blown not one, not two, but three 3-1 series leads and hasn't been to the conference finals in 8 years with some pretty good teams to boot.

Man, injuries have really f'd with the Finals the last two years. Didn't think the Heat win win but thought they could maybe win a couple and make it at least interesting. Now it is just going to be ugly.

The Heat were already somewhat screwed. The LA Refs were gonna see to that. But with Dragic out, Bam and Butler banged up, I really don't see how this doesn't end in a sweep. Lebron gets to coast to another title. Even though this is actually AD's team now

According to MGM, the outcome likelihood, from most likely to least likely:

Lakers in 5
Lakers in 6
Lakers in 4
Lakers in 7
Heat in 7
Heat in 6
Heat in 5
Heat in 4
Not too unsurprisingly, the most likely outcome of the series is now a Lakers sweep according to MGM betting odds.

Tell me how the refs influenced the game last night.

I think it will be a sweep. I think there will be one close game, probably game 2 or game 3, the rest will be like last night

I still have doubts that the role players for the Lakers can continue to shoot as well as they did last night. The first half of the first quarter seemed more like their norm.

They didn't really have to. I mean lebron and the Lakers got the typical majority of 50/50 calls to go their way, but the Heat took themselves out of it with all the injuries and the Lakers role players going unconscious from 3 in the 2nd and 3rd qtr. Refs played minimal part last night.

I did think it was funny how lebron has no issues with admitting to fouls or agreeing with calls against him when his team is up 25 though. I saw him raise his hand for a foul and even applaud a call when a ball bounced out of bounds off his noggin. The refs become infallible once the other team is dead to rights i guess.

The second foul on Adebayo was a really bad call. But refs didn't impact the game, injuries and Lakers role players shooting at a ridiculous clip put the game away. No way this series is close now with the three best players from the Heat hobbled.

I watched a lot of the playoffs, but it does seem like the Lakers are going to coast to a title at this point. Probably not going to be glued to every remaining game.
