So Eastern Conference play-in games tomorrow night, Western on Wednesday. Guessing the follow up games for 8th seed would be Thursday/Friday night.

Warriors almost managed to pull it out against the Lakers, but they gave the game away in the 3rd and then Lebron hits that crazy go ahead 3 to win it. Not that I think the Grizzlies could beat the Lakers but that would've been an interesting scenario to entertain. Alas

I was sooo mad about the Warriors for blowing this one!

If they only had Klay back!

And watching Draymond reminded me how we chose Marquis Teague over him and Khris Middleton in the 2012 draft... -.-

I remember someone on realgm saying that the only "skill" Teague had was that he knew if he threw the ball up real high AD would catch and dunk it.

there was certainly some questionable calls down the stretch of it. And not to mention LeFlop doing what he does best

Not going to lie, I don't mind the Warriors not being in the playoffs. I wouldn't mind seeing the Lakers lose either.

I want them to lose, I just don't think they will. Just seems to be that stupid usual thing of "Oh, Lebron is in the playoffs? He's automatically going to the Finals."

Suns are a good team, but vastly inexperienced, just seems like something the Lakers could expose. The Nuggets are missing one of their stars, the Blazers, if they upset Denver, aren't going to beat the Lakers. The Clippers are good on paper, but haven't really shown it in the playoffs. The Jazz have an injury to their best player. Just seems like, if the Lakers get past the Suns, they'll have an easy path to the Finals.

We'll see though.

Yeah, it's not that I'm some Lebron-hater, but there is that just that fatigue in seeing him there so often. In my ideal world Dame or a returning Donovan Mitchell make it to the Finals.

I can't see Portland getting to the Finals.

Jazz certainly can if Mitchell returns to form.. Phoenix has a very good chance if they get past LA, and Chris Paul doesn't suffer his usual playoff ending injury, which I have high doubts on, as Paul already got hurt yesterday.

Oh, I'd also enjoy the Suns getting to the Finals as well.

Philly from the East as well.

MSG was rockin' for Game 1 vs. ATL which is fun to see. But man, I can't root for the Knicks. just can't do it.

I can’t believe I am watching Cam Payne getting big playoff minutes for one of the best teams in the league. It’s honestly crazy how much better he got. He didn’t look like an NBA guy at all on the Bulls.
