Heat and Spurs shouldn't be in the playoffs.

they should have been replaced by the Pistons and Nuggets.

If we advance, let's not sleep on the Sixers.  They're a very solid team.  Will be a difficult out for any team in the East.

Nah.

The Heat are mediocre.  The Pistons are terrible.

Key is to control their supporting cast.

A friend told me he heard some speculating that GSW tanked the last game to give Curry more time to recover.  Do we believe that?

And the Pistons lost all 4 regular season games to the Sixers and Embiid dominated Drummond.

No, or else KD35 would not have recorded 40 minutes with 34pts and 13 rebounds, much less Klay Thompson and Draymond Green minutes.

They just got handily beat that night, in San Antonio. But tonight shall be the Spurs' end.

That's it for the Spurs' "dynasty", if they still had any.

Manu Ginobili may have played his final NBA game tonight.
Dwyane Wade may have played his final NBA game tonight.

An end of another era.
