Man. If I was an OKC fan Melo would drive me insane. So many bad shots, bricks. Especially down the stretch.

Might be seeing a couple of upsets in the first round.

Then again, the Western Conference's 3-8 seed are practically just 2 games apart.

0/6 fg in the 4th quarter for "Playoff P" ::). Sigh.

Ugly game in Houston.  Both teams shooting ~33%.  Gerald Green is ballin' out though.

Those two terrible 3’s early in the shotclock in the last 90 seconds would’ve had me screaming

Jimmy Butler doesn't look as good as Jaylen Brown looks in these playoffs...

I truly can't stand watching Harden play.  He's a glorified streetball player with a J.  And for Antoni to say he's the best offensive player he's ever seen proves he should be committed.  He gets away with an insane amount of travels, palming, flopping, shoving, and anything else illegal to be gifted those points.  Sure he can shoot but all that other garbage makes it painful to look at.

Donovan Mitchell is so good! Can't believe he's a rookie.

That's why he's probably going to win ROY.

For as great of a season as he has had, Simmons will take it home.  He has a greater overall impact on the game, Philly will probably have a better playoff run, and he's an advanced stats darling.  For example, he has nearly double the win shares of Mitchell.

Lol, even Reggie doesn't want them to go to the monitor.

Could not agree more. One of the NBA's golden children gets knocked over on a basketball play and they automatically look at it.

James Harden—or as I like to call him, Duh-wayne Wade 2.0.

While I agree with all of the above, what's interesting to me about Harden is how, despite his ball handling ability, he can't create space the vast majority of the time, unless, of course, he does that side-step travel move. I mean, sure, he'll drop guys on crossovers, but he's actually not particularly adept at creating his own shot, imo. It's either he shoots a three or drives into the paint, throws his arms out, screams that someone has attempted to shave his beard, and gets to the line ::).

Sidebar - if he were to braid dat beard, he'd legimitately look like Edward Teach ;), lol ;D:

He is just a shell of the player he was out of college.  Not much left to him as an NBA player .
