    I think it took so much out of him to make sure it went as planned in conference playoffs, he forgot longer series are better failed to make Finals go 6-7 instead of 4-5 last 2 years.

    I didn’t say anywhere that the Raptors should have gone to the finals, and they shouldn’t have because their roster and coaching was flawed. And Cleveland was absolutely not the best team in the east for all 4 of those years. In fact it was a joke around the league that it was Lebron and a bunch of scrubs after Kyrie was traded.

    Even if you believe this, Kyrie was only gone 1 of the 4 years. Never mind one of those scrubs was a 5X all star and they still had that Lebron fellow who was pretty good. This team was far better than the 2007 team he dragged there. Let me guess, Cleveland/SA was the "dream matchup" in 2007?

    And since length of series is most important care to explain why they allowed the Cavs to sweep Toronto then get swept by GS (and lose 4-1 the previous season)?

    I guarantee the league would rather 4-5 games of Lebron vs Curry than 6-7 games of DeRozan vs Curry.

    We’re not gonna agree on this, not sure why you decided to quote me instead of the poster who made the original statement that the league favours certain teams.

    Not exactly. You see they have the current MIP, a multi year all star/former DPY (Gasol) and another perennial all star (Lowry). But carry on with your nonsense.

    Prolly make very little difference..... GSW will either take this game off and finish it in 5 or..... welp, broom handles will be broken at a high clip in frustration....

    Doesn't this game feel like at some point GS is going to get a double digit lead and Portland is going fold like a chair.

    Steph is just absurd. Not only the off the ball movement that Mark Jackson alluded to. But the shot fake, and adjustment in the release point to keep Dame from blocking it from behind is absurd hand/eye coordination.

    3RD will be a Portland swan song.

    Prolly.... though, this is a game GS doesn't have to win.... if they run into any trouble, they can shut it down and end the series on their home floor.... 3-0 is a helluva place to be.....

    Even though GS leads 3-0, the series has been very enjoyable to watch.

    GS is playing loose like a team playing with house money.

    Want to wager on he doesn't make it to 50?

    How about two coupons to Popeye's chicken and a 40oz of OE 800?

    Either way they look set with 3 good BIGs for next year. Should be fresh and wear teams down with that rotation. As to getting past the Warriors is another story but they should be a better team next year with this experience

    Never saw this come back happening.

    Totally kidding. It would be interesting to see if any team has lost three straight games after being up double digits in the conference finals.

    Both teams look exhausted and Draymond just keeps flying all over the court.

    Great experience for Portland going against the best will serve them well. Should be hungrier and better from this to make another run

    Warriors start Jordan Bell and Alfonso McKinnie—an undrafted guy who was in the G league last year—and still win on the road for the sweep.

    That’s how good Steph, Dray, and Klay are as a big 3.

    The warriors just swept the toughest conference in the league without their best player (and another all star/top 15 player that is also out)

    Let that sink in for a minute
