    One All-Star Denver vs Jimmy Butler’s undrafted players. Who needs a super team besides KD?

    That shot was absolutely filthy!
    Look at Davis after that shot.

    No. They were swept by Jazz in 1998 WCF. That was the famous “1-2-3 Cancun!” series.

    Boston decided to start playing now? Totally different team in the second half of the close out game.

    The Euro's are taught very sound basketball fundamentals, thats why guys like Joker & Doncic are so effective even if they are not real quick or athletically gifted jumpers. Their ball handling, shooting, passing and post positioning are superb, even if they can't jump.

    If Brown is actually a possibility for us, we really need this series to end quickly. But I think they win 5 game as well. Then all the pressure will be on the Heat not to choke in game 6 at home.

    Yeah I think the Heat being the lower seed without HCA made their 3-0 lead less dominant then is normally the case with the higher seed.

    Boston probably will be favored at home in game 5. If they pull off that win then suddenly its an enormous amount of pressure on the Heat.

    Ultimately if Boston offers Brown 5 years $295 million supermax I think he stays. There is talk Boston might not offer that, as then when Tatum also gets the same extension they will have a lot of trouble filling out the roster with two players on supermax deals with the new luxury tax limits.

    If Boston doesn't offer $295 - I can see Brown willing to force his way to other teams for their $250 million max, even if Boston is offering a bit more such as $270. Plus the bad blood from Brown being offered in trades for Durant. If Boston makes this series competitive yeah probably increases the chance they offer the supermax $295.
