Which is exactly what I predicted about 11 posts prior.

There won't be a good game in this series because Boston's gonna smoke them in Game 6.

Boston Golden State could be very good. They matchup well.

just because you can't stay awake until midnight anymore grandpa, doesn't mean the rest of us can't. so far it's been the best NHL playoff series in years.

And the best series in years?
Its 3-1. no game decided by 1 goal, let alone any OT.
Just because you got a 15 goal game doesn't make it a great series.
There were several better series this season in the first round.

it might just be one of those "you can't really feel the rivalry unless you live here" things. every canadian NHL fan has picked a side. i'm all oilers in this series but rooting for the avalanche to win the cup because nate mackinnon is from halifax and there's a long shot that i might be invited to his stanley cup party via my cousin.

anyways, wrong thread. go heat go.

NBA 2021-22: Ben Simmons and Kyrie Walk Into A Bar While Talking About The Lakers

It’s a good series irrespective of the 15 goals scored in one game.

Here’s to winnin for McKinnon

Turns out if Al Horford and Rob Williams are both available, Miami cannot do shit against this Boston team.

Those who accused Jimmy Butler of being the "Bubble fraud" overlooked Bam Adebayo.

Miami will be fine: the weather is good there and their front office for now is better than most. But the team as currently constructed is flawed. It's deep, but deep in the way that a team has a bunch of plausible role players.

Agree.

It's all fine and good when they run up against teams that don't guard at a high level like they did in rounds one and two, but that's not Boston. Their #1 advantage is negated by Boston's equally good, if not better, defense.

They're also good at negating teams that focus too much on isolation. Which Boston used to be, but Ime got a switch to flip on Tatum sometime around January and they haven't looked back.

Boston has elite defense and elite offense.

Miami has elite defense and... Jimmy Butler. They need someone else who can score.

And with apologies to Dave, Kyle Lowry should just retire. He's had a damn good career, but looks like the tank is on E. Can't imagine Godfather Pat is pleased to have him under contract for 2 more years at nearly $30Mil per.

He's the only player to ever join the Heat and end the season in worse shape #HeatCulture

Guy's cooked.

no apology necessary. i agree, he's washed now. it happens to everyone eventually. he promised to retire as a raptor though so i dunno how that'll work out if he still has 2 years left on his miami contract.

As I was saying, Miami clearly has enough fire power and this series is far from over.

Reports of Kyle Lowry's demise were a tad premature.
Philly must enjoy watching Jimmy Butler in games like this.

Bang!

Honestly disappointed in how Boston played. So many turnovers in the first half... again. Obviously Miami has a terrific defense but they just didn't look like they had that killer instinct the entire game.

They're the better team, and they've gone and lost two games on their home court. And now need to win on the road again. Winning three games in Miami is going to be really really tough.
