Boston would be better off losing to the Pacers today just to ensure Porzingis plays at least one game before the NBA finals.

The more games he gets in before the finals, the better for him and the team.

This makes sense strategically - obviously you canā€™t flirt with form to make it happen thoughā€¦can come back to bite you šŸ‘

You seem to have forgotten about a certain Unicorn who will be getting most of those Horford minutes, and who defends the PnR just fine;

I always liked KP but I watched him play some absolute stinkers in a mavs jersey. Wonder if that gets in his head at all, playing his old team. Same would apply to Kyrie.

I think both players have matured and come a long way from their previous stints though so I hope we see the best of both.
Funny when they go to Javie before a call is made he actually says something different to the eventual ruling. Whenever they go to him after a call is pointless as he just backs it up.

Absolutely nothing but respect for the Pacers in that series. A 4-0 sweep doesn't do justice for how competitive and gritty they were, especially after Haliburton went down.
