Correct me if I'm wrong, Smart isn't playing? They haven't resurrected him from the dead for the 2nd game in a row?

3 game of the series where it is over within the fist quarter.
Add to that the skill levels at times is mind blowing bad, the Celtics are a great defensive team but the Heat missed so many bunnies in that first quarter.

Stephen A Smith says Miami should seek permission to be allowed back into the state. They are pathetic, despite the lopsided FT and foul count

If you think this has been bad, wait until GS win the finals in a sweep.
I doubt they will, not even convinced they win the finals although I hope they do.

Besides at least the Warriors are fun to watch, probably the most fun team to watch even in blow outs.

You just know if it's Boston and GSW in the finals it's bombs away.

There needs to be 2-3 days break between each game, IMO.

Whoever makes the Finals from the East is going to be seriously exhausted. GSW having a more cruisy time.
I do agree somewhat but that’s the reward they get for winning in less games I suppose

Is Bam the biggest flat track bully in the NBA? Goes off when Embiid and Timelord are out but barely even attempts a shot when they come back in?

Legit terrified of elite bigs
