Playoff Thread 2018

Thought we could all congregate here to discuss playoffs, even though none of us is on the bench or in huddle.

Cavs getting beaten up, looking really slow, a step behind the whole game, wasn’t expecting this....

Last night Rondo and the brow were very impressive.

Surprised that Philly killed the Heat.  The Heat barely played Whiteside

Toronto looked like they have all year.  They execute at both ends down the stretch.

Stick a fork in the Cavs.  They played ghastly.

The dubs are balling.

Okc too much experience for Utah. Now watching Rockets/Twolves.   Real close game

Thibs is a terrible coach, this game was very close and competitive and the Wolves offense had no identity, other than a Derek Rose flashback, that offense was bland and pathetic. How do you only get Towns 9 FGA in 40 minutes? It wasn’t the defense, it was nobody feeding him the ball for the whole game....ridiculous!!! A winnable game too for Wolves.

Wow Wade just exploded past Belillini this time to end the half!! Vintage Wade, Heat up 14, now we’ll see how young 76ers respond to adversity.

I was thinking same. When is Towns going to get a touch? He’s their best player and Thibs got the Bulls back Taj, Butler and Rose. Rose did have a good game and Butler was Butler but there were way too many trips where Towns never sniffed the ball. I have always thought Thibs (who always looks as though he has an upset stomach and hates his job) was a good coach but this is not the first time ive seen him go away from Towns. I dont get it.

I think the game has passed by Thibs, the whole year I didn’t notice anything in that defense that resembled a Thibs defense, Wiggins looks like he’s just going thru the motions, no passion or intensity. If ever you see the look of players tuning out a coach, it’s on this team, I don’t think he comes back next year and don’t see him landing another head coaching job again.

The Celtics might not have watched the game but I'm sure they'll see the final score and realize that could happen to them tomorrow if they don't focus and take care of business.  Milwaukee only needs a split.  It didn't have to be game 1.

Go Miami!!

True bob, we have to also learn how to finish games, you have to put teams away, go for the jugular when you have a 10 point lead with 4-5 minutes left, not turn it into a struggle....in other words play together, move the ball, get into the offense fast.

Donovan Mitchell is looking like a rookie tonight. Making some bad decisions and looking rattled.

Forget what I said about Mitchell, he's killing them in the final minutes.

I dont know about the game having passed him by but his decisions and strategy has been wack. Top that off by him responding to the media that its up to Towns to be aggressive and go get the ball is telling. It appears that he doesnt consult his assistants during the game because hes always halfway down the court “coaching”. He never sits down. They shouldve kept Sam Mitchell. These guys at least listened to him and hes pretty knowledgeable. You are spot on about his players tuning him out. Could you imagine playing for him and  listening to him hollaring and screaming throughout the game? Poor guy needs to sit...elsewhere.

Damn 76ers looking scary good, they really move/share the ball on offense.

Greg Anthony talking about playoff Rondo as he drills a 3, Pelicans way too much for Portland....didn’t see this level of beatdown coming.

The Process is working. Who would have guessed?

Embid and Simmons are HoF talent players if they can stay healthy. Simmons is a bigger faster version of Magic....

Two players I feel sorry for are Lebron and Jabari Parker, Lebron needs to score 40 for his team to even have a chance in playoff basketball, we are gonna see how long he can keep that up at 33 and Parker is just shot after being the 2nd pick in the draft.

They (76ers) didn't make the rules so i cant really blame them but the way they went about getting to this point and beyond is pathetic. The players and the fans that had to be a part of this were to be pitied. How many players careers were directly affected in a negative way as a result of the "process"?
How many fans (in a great basketball city) had to put up with that NBA nonsense for so many years because of the "process"?
So now they have arrived but the "process" stunk to high heaven.

I am just in awe of Anthony Davis, I’ve already admitted to my son he’s better than Kevin McHale ever was....now I’m thinking he’s even better than Kevin Garnett and Tim Duncan were, more skilled and athletic than all 3, so fluid, makes it look so easy. Does everything and more, puts up way more 40 point games than those 3, he’s got to be best player in NBA right now. I’d easily take him over Lebron or Harden.
