Back on the court.


#1644

Another big win for the Celtics, Cavs in big trouble.


#1645

Maybe Cavs in 6 ?


#1646

Don’t think so. Celtics are a better side and this time Lebron can’t do it all himself. He had 42 points and another triple double last night and they were still beaten by 13.


#1647

If JR has an uptick of form, it’s a completely different team


#1648

In Korver, Smith and Love the Cavs have 3 usually outstanding perimeter shooters. That they have all gone cold is amazing. I would expect the Cavs to win their home games and I would not put it past Lebron to put on one more show in Boston before heading for LA or back to Miami in the Summer.


#1649

Korver and love were both ok points wise last night though. They just have no D and are letting Boston walk in. Their attitude is wrong and Stevens has a plan to shackle Lebron. Can’t do it all the time but enough. He’ll be gone, LA for the sunshine Id guess


#1650

Korver was 2 from 5
Love was 2 from 6
Smith 0 from 4.
All 3 have been elite 3pt shooters in the past. Now they are average. I still expect them to up their game at home.


#1651

40% and 33% are average, anything above would be exceptional


#1652

Ben Simmons, Donovan Mitchell & Jayson Tatum are this season’s finalists for Rookie of the Year. It looks very much like Simmons will get it but by any other year’s standard the other two guys have been sensational and would have got it most times. It’s been a really sensational year for the young guys. The Boston back office are truly something else the way they elected to trade away the no. 1 pick in last year’s draft to take Tatum at no. 3. And of course the year before snagging Jaylen Brown at no. 3 another master selection.


#1653

Warriors getting slaughtered here in the third. Missing a bunch of threes.


#1654

They are definitely the coming team.


#1655

Lock the doors.


#1656

Rockets defense was awesome tonight.


#1657

If Boston win the East with such a young core and all the while missing Irving and Hayward it will go down as one of the best coaching performances in the past few decades.


#1658

Coaching maybe. Danny Ainge acquisition policy definitely


#1659

Doncic really is a walking bust. Even for a cracker he is slow as sin. Fat too. Would make a decent junior b full forward.


#1660

Eastern Finals Game 3 tonight. Cavs have to win this at home to have any hope.
LETS GO CELTICS!


#1661

Celtics getting smoked here, 61 - 41 to the Cavs at the half.


#1662

Cavs in 6
