    Turn back the clock game for ZBo. we just need Vinsanity dunking over LaMarcus like Fredric Weiss to complete the throwback.

    Probable All NBA guard DeRozen has shot 0/8 from the field tonight.

    Raptors probably have the most overrated back court in the league.

    Beal & Wall are both solid
    Dame & CJ are both solid
    Curry & Thompson are both solid
    DeRozan & Lowry overrated

    They're good in season, bad in playoffs.

    I bet there were a lot of Grizzlies fans who thought the series was over after dropping 2 in SA. Now they are handling business on their home court. Teams are expected to win on their home court in the playoffs, especially in a 1-8, or 2-7 matchup, that is why it is called home court advantage.

    • Mike Conley is a very underated PG.

    If Lamarcus keeps up his post season efforts he'll approach Robin Lopez numbers!

    Bucks are going to knock the Raptors out.

    I may become a Bucks fan for the playoffs IF we get knocked out.

    The Greek freak is fun to watch.

    The very definition of overrated. Drive you to the dance, then stand by the wall playing Magic The Gathering instead of dancing with you.

    I've been saying the same thing in my podcast. Bucks and Antetokoumnpo are my favorite non-Blazer team and non-Blazer player. I invite you to hear more on my podcast. It's on iTunes, Stitcher, and PocketCasts. It's called Speeding Through the NBA Playoffs with Eric Millegan. If you go to iTunes, please take the time to rate and review it. You can also hear it by simply going to NBASpeed.com. I think you'll enjoy it and I speak highly of the Bucks in it.

    And Dame/Stotts is 10-14. Btw, did you know that John Wall is 10-1 all time in the first round? I also address that in my podcast.

    Must be nice always having home court in the Leastern conference.
