Can Denver win ? Yes they can. Are they likely to? I don’t think so.

The 3 wins they got especially the last 2 were more the clippers fault: it is one thing to win because you are better, it is another to win because your opponent underperforms. When you see the huge leads in both games one needs not be Einstein to understand that it was the clippers undoing.
If it happened once, we can say it's an aberration, but when it happens consistently then you have to wonder if it's just the Clippers fault. The best team doesn't always win in the playoffs. And let's not act like Kawhi is MJ or LeBron that automatically makes their team the favourite. He'll score his usual 30-35 points, but can he score 50 if his team are playing badly?

Are you saying Morey forced D'Antoni to play small ball? I highly doubt that.

What I meant is the Clippers need the other players including their second unit to do their bit especially in the 3rd and 4th quarters. Their over reliance on Kawhi and PG in games 5 and 6 cost them both games in my opinion.

Oh okay.. Now I understand.
Re: The NBA Begins by benji93: 8:51pm On Sep 15
It's about time we start meting out the same treatment to some of these super stars as we do Lebron. Kawhi's place in history is on the line today. cheesy

So D'Antoni has no right to ask for a Center?

mattfeuter:


With just one game? Lol

No mind me jare! I have huge amounts of respect for Brady. He has earned the argument but I would also like to see him have a winning season with the Bucs. I see you are nother hater of the GOAT Rodgers? hmmmm..

Watching out for the bam vs theis/Williams battle.
I think this series will expose the need for bam to develop a post game to take him to the next level.
Bam must be dominant for the heats to stand a chance against the Celtics
Re: The NBA Begins by SmooshCHN: 2:04am On Sep 16
This Celtics - Miami shocked game. Damn!!
Re: The NBA Begins by SmooshCHN: 2:09am On Sep 16
Butler.

At this point, I don't even want the West to win.

Dude is legit!

OT! Game on!
Re: The NBA Begins by DeeMain(m): 2:30am On Sep 16
The Heat wins!

Oh that clutch block by Adebayo!
Re: The NBA Begins by steady986(m): 2:31am On Sep 16
Jason Tatum though, smh. He should have played that ball off the glass instead of going for a dunk there with Adebayo breeding down his neck. Youthful exuberance maybe?
Re: The NBA Begins by SIRcumalot: 2:31am On Sep 16
I can't stand this Miami culture shite..(act like they have a monopoly on hardwork)
But they are legit, butler and the rest.
Those doubles they threw at Kemba messed him up a bit but he came up big in that fourth quarter/OT...

We can’t keep the Heat close like we did the Raptors. We have got to ensure we have good separation mid 4th quarter because these cats play hard and have a closer in Butler.

On to game 2..

You're still questioning the toughness of a team that has come back from 2 3-1 deficits? Ok oh

How many Clipper leads do they have to come from? With what I'm seeing from these Clippers I'm not even sure I want to see them face the Lakers. Doc's rotation is all over the place rn. Baba don confuse

Jokic in foul trouble...the only thing that can make Denver lose this game.
Re: The NBA Begins by Afr0mentalist: 4:09am On Sep 16
Kawhi you legacy is on the line baba. It is now or you will be disrespected for a long time. You have been sitting out one night out of 3 during The regular season for this time. Now the time has come oo

And forget about next year, KD will be back Curry will be back with klay Giannis lebron it will be harder.

The time is now! You have 12 minutes to show up or get shown the way out of the pantheon

Game wey dem don lose since Game 6. From 3rd quarter of Game 6 na him e dawn on me say Clippers go lose this series.

To be frank they could have lost to the Mavs if Porzingis was healthy.

This team's lack of discipline is biting it's behind big time
