Re: The NBA Thread

wow wow wow can’t believe this Ish Smith lineup is +14 in the fourth. Lopez played Charlotte best small ball defenders Washington and McDaniels off the floor and that’s been the difference.

    The Knicks finished the season with more wins than the Heat, Celtics, Pacers, Raptors, Warriors, Grizzlies, Spurs and Pelicans amongst others. Projected to win 22 games. What a season.

    Re: The NBA Thread

    Charlotte is the better playoff defense, but Washington the better playoff horses. big time fourth by Westbrook and Lopez. and frankly Scott Brooks stuck with his best lineup (which is normally asinine) and it worked. amazing start to the day

    CHARLOTTE COVERS!

    Think those are the best matchups to see. Boston/Indy would be a bore of a game

    ^agreed

    Golden State starts off in a conventional defense, could be a rough start for them

    Re: The NBA Thread

    Both east games are Tuesday so potentially the Warriors/Lakers could host their game at like 4:00pm western time

    Edit: if the Warriors lose today

    shoutout to Poole and Mulder, they found a non-Curry lineup last month that wasn’t a disaster and haven’t looked back

    Memphis defense falling out of position now, Clarke and Melton unable to keep up the intensity

    yeah i think they grouped the games so that no team had the advantage of knowing the result of other games that affected them . pretty clever

    Re: The NBA Thread

    Portland has the tie breaker over the Mavs right? If Mavs lose and Portland wins, it would be Portland at the 5 seed and Dallas 6th. Which means that both Denver and Clippers need to lose in order for Dallas to play Denver? Did I get that right? I just really don’t want the Clippers in 1st round...

    Dallas has the tiebreaker as division champ, they’re locked into 5 unless they lose somehow

    edit i think they’re 5th no matter what

    Clippers have successfully tanked lol Patrick Patterson with 41 minutes

    we have some matchups set! and they’re spicy

    Clippers vs Dallas again on Utah side of the bracket
    Denver vs Portland again on Phoenix side of the bracket

    will be surprised if either goes past 5 games but I love it

    not really, they struggle against midrange heavy teams that stretch Gobert out. Phoenix and Clippers have been able to get any shot they want on them

    on offense they are easily stopped by switching defenses, and the Clippers are probably the best in the league 1-5 at the switch

    Clippers sought them out, as evidenced by yesterday, the funniest tank game in history


    not to mention, the Lakers could still fall to 8th and draw Utah

    i’ve seen a lot of Ariza, Dedmon, and Iguodala this year. which is nice and all...but yeah. and Herro has had a decent month but overall he is def not the same guy. Robinson has been okay. Adebayo and Butler will do a lot of heavy lifting


    i think Milwaukee definitely could have made it easier on themselves but i’d be very surprised if this series goes past 6. that said, it’s Spoelstra so the games will be competitive
