I think so...

I mean... maybe Phoenix?  I'm probably drinking too much of Wilbon's Kool-Aid.

As a Suns fan, only Utah and Brooklyn scare me. Go Bucks.

I'd like to say my Nuggets have a chance but the Suns worry me.

C'mon Bucks. Crush the balls of everybody at ESPN who has already blown their load over the Nets.

We know Nets vs Clippers is the matchup the networks wants, but think of the story..

.. a meeting of the two franchises that, no matter what success they achieve, were (and likely will always be) in the shadow of their marquee crosstown rivals.

Holy crap, the tip is actually at 6:30.

The Bucks and Jazz are the only two NBA teams in their respective cities. So....

when you're a Net you're a Net all the way! 

I never doubted them!

huh, if KD doesn't foul there the shot doesn't count

So, Grant Hill seems to be in the bag for the Nets. So far he's claimed that they controlled and dominated the 1st half, and now they're cruising.

"Who says the Nets don't play defense?"

I bet even Nash says it

Even if the Nets lose this series, we should keep having games on their court.  Coolest ever.

Giannis.

Stop. Taking. Threes.

TAKE THE DAMN BALL INTO THE PAINT.

If you're playing key playoff games, do you really want Harden on the court?  Hasn't worked out in the past

No foul on Durant somehow to end the 3rd. uhh....

Blake has found the fountain of youth

The Bestest: Blake has found the fountain of youth


Seriously. If he keeps this up past this game, I don't know how the Bucks could win. He's been the difference maker tonight.

/I don't think he'll keep it up

Bron's brother Mike hasn't been too shabby

Well, just let Brooklyn hit all the 3s tonight. The Bucks will come back and hit all of theirs next game.

I swear I'm gonna wake up tomorrow and find out the last two years have been a hoax and Kobe is actually now a Nets backup.

I lived right by the Nets arena.

(Just a year or two before they bothered to build it* and moved there.)

And I'm in NJ now, so I have a double-connection to them. 

*rusty UFO on blocks looking POS. should have kept the original design they used to extort money from us residents.

It isn't terrible. But I wanted a Gehry!

It used to stain the sidewalks brown so I always enjoyed calling it a giant dog turd.

Does grow on you.
