I have a feeling the Nuggets will win.

The series begins when it's 3-1 Lakers.

Wadded Beef: The series begins when it's 3-1 Lakers.


Or the general playoff rule:  it's not a series until someone loses at home

/I don't think it's going to be much of a series unfortunately

Jokic came out aggressive as hell, seriously beat up javelle he lucky he didn't pick up a couple fouls

That Chris Webber footage looks like he played in the Middle Ages. How did we ever watch sports in SD?

Drove AD back a couple of feet by flexing his ass.  Been quite a while since I've seen anyone do that to AD (2012-2014 AD used to get that treatment all the time

If you ever see Pitino on the sideline again, you'll wish we'd never been cursed with HD

/closeup of him is what made me curse HD a few years ago

Great, with like 3 minutes left in the half, I thought, "If the Lakers get this inside 10 before halftime, it's a game. If the Nuggets keep it over 10, it's over." So of course it's at 10 going into the break.

/might fall asleep anyway
//No more of this 9pm et BS

So an odd observation and I may be wrong, sadly I don't have dvr, when jokic hits that shot he is pivoting with his left foot, the steps and shoots off his right, shouldn't that be a travel?

I think it's allowed because the pivot foot doesn't come back down. Just has to take it one-legged, Dirk-like.

He wrong legs it, its odd, it's once he lifts his left he switches his pivot, i want to see it again

I'll let it go 'cause it's still a terrible shot coontil it goes in).

Looked really intentional
 
2020-09-22 10:37:43 PM  
Definitely intentional, but LeBron sold the contact a little bit.
 
2020-09-22 10:42:28 PM  
Well, the Lakers' offense look horrific. Maybe, just maybe, try getting to the rim.

They do this all the time, so much size and settle for shots

Insane, lakers amazing run then settle for jump shots

Feels like an extension of AD.  No one can stop him inside, but he's allergic to the 5.
 
2020-09-22 11:43:24 PM  
I'm just glad we've got a series
 
2020-09-22 11:46:46 PM  
Just looked at box score:  AD had 2 rebounds.  Howard, McGee and Kuzma all had 1 each

It's crazy, all this size, I think they need to reel in howard he is going too far crazy

Lakers in 5, it's not a series.  You wanna see a series then keep watching the East finals because that one is going 7

I mean...the Lakers have finished every series in 5 and their opponents have played 7 in the round prior every time so far.

For some reason I thought miami was up 3-0 when I commented that.

I did a dumb.

Not as big a dumb as saying miami/Boston goes 7 though.

Oh and I don't have a horse in this race, I literally said to my roommate the other day "where the fark did miami come from? Why are they good?"

They just are.

I mean...those first two games could've gone either way, really. It's definitely not crazy to suggest the series will go 7.

It's as crazy to think miami/Boston goes 7 as it is to give 25:1 odds the lions hire Jim Caldwell again.

/I made that bet, on the other side
//Also made a 50:1 bet the jets go 0-16, with the same person
