    GS is better without KD...

    They’re definitely a more enjoyable watch. With KD they go through periods of iso ball. But without, they move better without the basketball and the ball moves better. It’s a thing of beauty when they’re hitting on all cylinders.

    GS flows better minus KD. Stay out of my corner.

    Quoted you after you replied to one of the comments as you were the poster to whom I replied.

    League doesn't care, it's the networks. And they'd take the longer series every time.

    Anyone willing to be rational cannot see the GS-Portland series and think games are fixed. If they were, would have been so easy to make sure Portland won at least one of the last 2 games to avoid a sweep.

    So far a solid effort by both teams.

    It sounds like Marv Albert is calling this game from an office in Century City.

    I've been told on here that gives no advantage to a team though. Apparently only in football that works.

    It all depends on if they will give you your hat back after you toss it on the ice...

    Makes for good season salt.....

    If the Raps stay away from the teen quarters in the 2nd, they may very well take this one with ease....

    I'm low right now. I just want the Buss family to sell the team. They're messing up 60 years of greatness.

    Everytime Milwaukee goes on a run the Raptors stop it with freethrows.

    Stay aggressive

    Yup, they are gonna bleed them by coming down the lane and wait for the fouls to add up.

    That allows for more rest for Kawhi and makes Milwaukee play against a set defense.

    Yep and it's gonna give them favorable matchups in the late third and fourth quarters.

    Sad to think, the NBA will be gone in a few weeks. MLB is just warming up, Dodgers leading the west by 6 games feels good.

    Soon you will be hearing that LeBron could play 1B and pitch..... so, it won't be all bad....

    Raps avoid that crucial low scoring quarter..... Bucks better step up or this series is all tied up and anyone's to take....

    You can see the future of the league is Giannis. Who else is going to be the next it guy?

    Please, don't throw me out the window, but I'm not sold on Zion yet. I just don't see that instant NBA star others see.

    I think the Bucks saw what happened to Portland and they don't want any part of that broom. :D

    They avoided that in game 3..... right now, they are shifting from "Let's just stay in this" to, "Hell, I think we can win the East!"

    Do you see the next Lebron type player? Some people swear he's all that and a bag of chips.

    I think the college ranks were down. Thus the reason people are saying the first three picks of the NBA draft is about it. Obviously, there will be some guys who become big stars who are selected late. Happens every year.

    9 days rest for GS is ridiculous. They should be ready to roll. Hopefully Iggy and Durant will be full strength.

    It's difficult to say because, as you said, college is such a lower division from the pros..... but, he has shown that he can play both O and D on a high level.... we'll see if it translates to the NBA and if he can stay consistent....

    I think what gets me about Zion is his weight for his height. He's 6'7" and played at 285 to 295. He wasn't exactly chubby, but add 75 million and a ton of pssy and partying and things can get out of hand. Memories of Shawn Kemp lol
