    Wiggins blew it. And KAT totally traveled. That was amazing. He almost handed the ball to the ref and Chris Paul is yelling TRAVEL TRAVEL!! LOL.

    Towns first playoff game and it shows. Harden, now that’s the real MVP.

    Yeah. Stupid play. They should have put a big white 7 footer in to go for a quick two going towards the rim. Now THAT is a championship caliber play call.

    You literally just said 15 minutes earlier that they were going to sweep the Thunder. How do you do this? Where does it come from?

    OKC did what I expected. Too much for the young inexperienced Jazz. Utah put up a good fight, but Playoff ball is what the Thunder were built for I believe. Russ was ridiculous today.

    PG with 36/7 was damn good for sure. Russ with 29/13/8 was ridiculous. Set the tone for their offense all night, and put great pressure on the Jazz' D.
    PG was 8/11 on 3s today and would have to go look, but I remember Russ drawing in the defense and kicking to him for an open 3. Quality win for them.

    It was only game 1, Utah still have every chance to get back into this for sure.

    I didn’t think Rockets v Timberwolves would be so close but it was mainly that because of how poorly Houston shot. If they don’t have this slump in the upcoming games they should be winning this series comfortably.

    Indiana did well last night and I reckon they have a solid chance to win the series. Cleveland are a complete mess.

    Minnesota looked pretty good; I guess as a #8 seed they can be loose. No expectations. I doubt they win the series but they are not lying down like dogs (sorry).

    Spurs, Cavs awful. Celtics found their East Coast Dame Time.

    My sister, not even a fan, has a friend who scored a pair of tix to tonight's Warriors/Spurs and invited her. Why don't I have friends like that?
    (answer, she is a caterer with a professional clientele, the kind who get comped tickets)
