"Murray drops 50 to force game 7" is a hell of an outcome. Go Nugs!

I wonder if Doncic's Mavs being eliminated by the Clips this year will be kind of like the 2014 Dubs' elimination by the Chris Paul-era Clips? In the sense that it kicks off a lasting rivalry and a pause before the changing of the guard. I hope it does and the inevitably even-more-ascendant Doncic goes out of his way to obliterate LAC every time they meet for the next 5 seasons.

It's looking like Boston may be an exceptionally tough matchup for the Raptors. I'm guessing they'll do better in some of the upcoming games, but without as many transition points to count on they're going to have a tough time.

Anytime else hoping the Thunder can push the Rockets to a game 7 just out of spite for both teams? I'm super ready for the Annual Playoff Harden Collapse to kick in, but I hope they can knock off Oklahoma first.

Actually, we got side tracked. Will be running the Rockets treatise as it's own thing soon.

I don't think I'll be able to catch any of the early game, but that Rockets/OKC game is going to be mandatory viewing. It's been such a fun series, made more fun by all the interpersonal dynamics

hahaa stay tuned, we got a bunch of stuff coming up on these exact points!

But yeah, Luka seemed straight up mad at the Clippers. I don't know how stable that roster is in LA, but if Luka keeps improving it may not matter one way or another.

And that Raps game was weird - their entire team is weird. As much love as I have for Siakam (who is legit approaching star player level) they NEED those transition buckets. Assuming Boston keeps doing a good job of slowing that whole scene down, I am really not sure that the Raptors have the halfcourt set firepower to hang with them.

Aw shucks, no comments yet? Ok I’ll start it off by copying a tweet I just made: Ibaka has so many warts lol. If he somehow ends up with the Warriors for 2021, he could be #DubNation’s most hated lol.
