Embiid's never going to win...


Jokic put up stats on a shit team, a 6th seed in a weak conference. Embiid put up stats on an unexpectedly good team that had the joint 2nd best record in a stronger conference. Bizarre decision.

Liz Cambage has long been a problem with team harmony.

If she'd played an individual sport (tennis etc) she'd have been fine. But it's hard to be 'yourself' in a team sport when you're as wild as she can be.

Massive, series defining win for the Celtics. Horford and Tatum were huge in the final quarter.
Everyone played well/did their job especially the bench.

Great series for neutrals, but nerve wrecking for me

Just on her comments, her father is Nigerian and she went on and lived with her mum after they split. Very poor comments but could be some underlying family issues there.

Really not seeing how that's relevant though? Even if she has had a terrible relationship with her Dad, it doesn't give her the right (or excuse) to vilify them based on her family experience.

What was reportedly said was utterly disgusting.

Bucks really missing Middleton, I think if he's healthy the Bucks might have this series wrapped up. But without him, the Celtics are a chance to win this.

That's ridiculous? Isnt that more money for commentating than he would get for playing?!?

Makes sense for absolutely every party in that deal.

Who chooses games based on the commentator?

Fox Sports probably won't exist in 10 years.

Not going to lie, that was a very bitter loss to swallow.

Damn U Marcus Smart.

Just an choke/4th quarter meltdown of epic proportions.

Woeful from Boston in that last 1/4. Just no excuse to lose from there. Hard to see them coming back from that.

Yeah that's a bottle job. Expect Bucks to finish it off in 6.

Well we won in Milwaukee before, so never say never, but for the most part, the Bucks have looked the better team this series, even without Middleton.

I disagree. I think the Celtics have looked like the better "team".

The Bucks just have the best player in the world and elite guard defense in Holiday. I still think the Celtics can win in Milwaukee, they don't seem like the Celtics of old that would drop their heads after this Game 5 loss.

Next game wins the series IMO, no chance Bucks win a 3rd in Boston.

Yeah Bucks gotta close it out at home in Game 6 because if they go back to Boston I think they lose the series. This would have been over in 5 if Middleton was healthy though.

Going well in Philly for the Sixers right now.

So happy to see them have one quarter left in their season. Philly fans generally are amongst the most toxic and intolerable fan bases in all of US sports, and it gives me so much happiness to see those punks bow out
