sno man: LETS GO RAP TORS!!!!


I wanted to see them play the Bucks because I thought there were some good, interesting matchups.  But it looks like the Bucks have run into a good enough matchup already

Gee, no one has ever pointed something like this out in a basketball thread before.  Food for thought, I guess

Looks like the Raps just like getting down 2-0 in a series for sport.

Sorry this was my first time ever in a basketball thread.  I didn't know any better.  I'ii stick to hockey from now on where the snark level is not as high.

Hmmm as someone rooting for the Lakers I'm glad that the Clips series seems to be following the same pattern as last round. Hopefully the Lakers series works out similarly to last round as well.

/Also, go Heat/Raps in the East
//The Raps going back-to-back would be delightful

No!  You're fine!  I'm sorry, I thought it was funny to see.

People who note that are usually making fun of us, and calling the NBA fake (and that one generally comes from a wrestling fan, which is great)

Taking home court away really is making things harder to predict.  The Raptors would've had home court against the Celtics, and I think a scenario where the Raptors drop the first 2 at home, then win 2 in Boston, would've been pretty unlikely.

And I just got home to turn on this game and I'm pretty surprised at how it's going.  I felt going into the playoffs that they *might* matchup *OK* with the Clippers.  But then they spent most of the first round being more of a one man gang than a team.  I don't know if what they've done tonight looks repeatable or not, having just gotten here

Yeah I have to watch streams on my phone, which burns the battery up quickly, so I mostly check in on scores until the 4th quarter and, if it's close, I pop in.

I'm going with just pretending they are playing on the road and the Raps/Celtics series has just been all road victories. Who can defend home court?

Denver better not blow this, joker has been off second half, hasn't shot a three 4 or 4 first half

I almost wish that were happening, so I could watch people in Boston and especially Toronto lose their minds over it.  (Sorry, Boston fans ain't what they used to be; too much success and not enough angst anymore)

I submitted a story about this yesterday:  Malone rightfully went off yesterday because players can bring their families in now but coaches can't.  I have to wonder how all the sexual frustration the coaches are going through will affect their judgment
 
2020-09-05 11:36:07 PM  
Jokic with 26 points and 18 boards; that's more like it
 
2020-09-05 11:45:17 PM  
Well I started watching and saw Beverley kicked out. Good riddance. Also, lol @ Paul George down the stretch, although apparently he was the Clips' top performer on the night.

All in all, a great NBA day.
