(ESPN)   The first East Semifinals between the Celtics and Raptors begin at 1:00 PM ET at ESPN. The Clippers and Jazz have opportunities to finish off their opponents at 3:30 PM and 8:30 PM. This will certainly be a Sunday Funday in the NBA   (espn.com) divider line

Have been hoping to see a Bucks-Raptors series, but mostly just rooting for good basketball in this one

If there is a sprotsgod, it'll be Raptors/Clippers in the Finals
Whatever else happens, Kawhi vs. Raps is the story that must be settled before the Raps will actually be taken seriously.

I don't know.  Anybody who takes out these Bucks or Lakers out is pretty serious, imho.  But yeah, that's definitely the best story.  And you'd have Kawhi winning titles (and probably Finals MVP) with three different teams on the line.

May not be the right thread, but any of you middle-upper class types with comfortable jobs prepared to put down three years' salary for this bad boy?

Note that the auction describes this as an "investment piece" for the "investment community" and you socialists may be turned off by the idea that this is an INVESTMENT, and one that can be had for the low price of a quarter-million dollars.

But anyone who is not convinced should read the back of the card.  Not only is he the second teenager to start a season opener with the Mavericks, behind Dennis Smith Jr., but Luka is following in the footsteps of Sasha Vujacic, who I think got tried for war crimes after his performance as a Knick.

Nevermind that, though, I hope all of you have committed enough crimes in order to put your money in the pot for this INVESTMENT PIECE.

Raptors had a sustained period of great play that should've been their full comeback, and missed shot after shot after shot.  Frustrating

Their lack of first quarter defense didn't help a whole lot either.

Lowry and Theis both win the "most whining faces at officials" award.

I got curious about Raptors playoff history with about 6 minutes left, went here:

They had today's game down as an L with 6 minutes left

The raptors looked like they lost their rhythm.

Boston Looks like they could have the team the rockets want, that would fit Dantonis system with the ability to play defense

Morris needs to go

WillofJ2: Morris needs to go


Yeah, that was a lazy late hit to the neck, no attempt to go for the ball.  Would have been fine in 1980 of course.

Makes his move with the shoe look more intentional, to me.

I dont think harrell went for the ball on that last donic play

For whatever reason with boban on court dallas is plus 25, he needs to be in the game

Was about to post:  surely Mitchell and Murray can give us a good game.  Random thing:  weren't Mitchell and Murray the guys that Alec Baldwin said sent him down to talk to all the non-closers in Glengarry Glen Ross?  Too lazy to look it up, but sounds right

It's Mitch and Murray; this has been your Glengarry Glen Ross threadjack

Hope the Nuggets win, just so I can see another game between these two.

Incredible step back 3 by Murray over Gobert with the shot click expiring.  It's a shame, we finally got a great game today and I doubt if anyone's watching

Dammit Murray.  Holy hell

And I still don't have a good idea of which team would be better against the clippers, cant imagine Murray or Mitchell going off like this, Utah seems deeper but Denver seems so much better at times
