WOW. PACERS WIN!!!

I almost had a heart attack when JR hoisted that up. He usually hits those crazy kind of threes.

I feel like Cleveland have forgotten that Love is actually good

Minnesota Love was great...he is a shell of himself now. Just a spot up shooter.
Disagree. If he played on a functional offence he could easily score 20+ nightly. He still hovers between 16-18, which is pretty elite for “just a spot up shooter”


Compared to what he did in Minnesota...he is just a spot up shooter now. Used to be a monster in the paint as well as a good shooter.

Meanwhile, Beal and Wall are actually having great games tonight.

Could be a high scoring affair. 77-69 Wiz with 8 minutes left in the 3rd.

way too close for comfort .....should have been easier with 9 point lead

Cavs are a millon miles from GS as constructed ......i don't think anything short of adding Leonard and PG could push them back to a contender .   

Lue sucks as a head coach ...he is at best a college coach at a small school.

Jordan didn’t even get the number of calls James gets. 6’8 250 and he never gets called for anything

Seriously?

Seriously.

I think that we'll just have to agree to disagree, here, which is fine :).

But he's right though.  No player in the history of the NBA has benefited more from calls/non-calls than Lebron.  A legit argument can be made than he wouldn't have any rings without the refs help.

I don't know where their defense has been all year (17th in DRtg), but the Bucks clamped down tonight.

All dogs won today.

I was only able to watch the 4th quarter when it was already out of hand.  Were the calls one-sided all night?  Milwaukee had 27 fouls vs. 15 for Boston, so I'm guessing there were a lot of late make-up calls?

A heap of those fouls came early in the game, when Milwaukee were hacking us at every opportunity. Then they put their whistles away even though Milwaukee were playing exactly the same rough basketball. Don’t get it

Cavs should've been down 0-3 if it weren't for Game 2's debacle.
