How the hell did we get here? If the Sixers lose, then somebody who bet on any of the other three teams left before the beginning of the season to win it all is it going to make a lot of money.

Clippers - O NBA Final appearances

Suns - 0 Finals wins; last appearance 1993

Bucks - Last title 1971; Last Finals 1974

Sixers - Last title 1983; Last Finals 2001

Hawks - Last title 1958; Last appearance 1961

At minimum, a 30-year title drought will end.

° 38 year drought, I mean

Yup.  And I'm pretty sure the Hawks were in St. Louis when that title happened.  I think the Atlanta Hawks have never even won the EC.  They have, however, won the passionate cheers of at least 30 people in Atlanta.

Go Clippers

Happy to see both teams playing hard without flopping & biatching all the time

Agreed. This may be a good series. Just wish my Nuggets could have skipped the Suns and gone directly to the Clippers.

Not the first time Reggie Jackson was involved with a moving screen.

His most recent one was supposed to cover Enrico Pallazzo

You know, for years I've been predicting that someday PG would be seen as standing for Playoff Gamer!  Years, I say.  Ask anyone.
 
2021-06-20 5:44:01 PM  
The Suns are really fun to watch, enjoying the game overall too.
 
2021-06-20 5:44:36 PM  
I think suns are better no paul than clips no kawhi
 
2021-06-20 5:44:54 PM  
That being said this seems very evenly matched
 
2021-06-20 5:48:53 PM  
Wow! After like four tries Clippers get the three. 2 point game.
 
2021-06-20 5:51:22 PM  
Clippers lose. They have the Suns right where they want them
 
2021-06-20 5:56:50 PM  
Suns 6 players in double figures vs 3 a little bit better balance

And the allowed Kaminsky to get another game of rest before he unleashes hell
 
2021-06-20 6:54:28 PM  
Which team would the Bucks want to play against next?

The Pistons.

Crazy shiat happens in a Game 7. Some random role player like Ben Simmons might hit a three.

Hawks titles were ABA too.

Finally found a way to pay attention.

Sixers fans booing all game so far. They learned nothing from the Knicks.
 
2021-06-20 8:11:35 PM  
The hawks have exceeded my every expectation this season so I shouldn't care how this game goes. But I ain't gonna lie it would suck to go home after they've gotten this close. That's good I guess.
 
2021-06-20 8:14:14 PM  
Embiid moves like someone half his size.
 
2021-06-20 8:30:21 PM  
So, go Hawks I guess. Give the Bucks home court.

Except I'm so tired I can't keep my eyes open.

Yeah, it would be hard to fault them at this point.

Having said that, I know they're very young, but every title shot could be your only one, and this thing is wide open.  They could be chasing titles for the next decade *or* this could be the only decent chance they ever get.

/no pressure

Pat McAfee talked about that on his show. His rookie season was when the colts lost to the saints in the super bowl iirc. He said at the time everyone was bummed and he was like: "It's fine we'll be back here all the time, we'll win next time." They never got back.
 
2021-06-20 8:56:19 PM  
Is Joel Embiid always this whiny? Always looking to the ref like "WTF?" Is this normal for him?
 
2021-06-20 8:58:30 PM  
What's with the constant whistles?
 
2021-06-20 9:01:59 PM  
I want the Hawks to win because if Burt Gummer is angry that means nobody wins.
 
2021-06-20 9:04:09 PM  
Hold on now, Nate farking McMillan is a coach? Jesus.

WoodyHayes: Hold on now, Nate farking McMillan is a coach? Jesus.


Not only that, the team did a 180 when he took over.  Next to Trae Young, he's getting the most credit for the Hawks being here.
 
2021-06-20 9:07:41 PM  
26 combined fouls called so far in the first half... that's insane.

Bootysama: 26 combined fouls called so far in the first half... that's insane.


Yeah.  They weren't perfect but last night's refs seemed to err on the side of watching them play, and it was a lot of fun.
 
2021-06-20 9:11:31 PM  
Well I'd like to feel good about this but leads have been utterly meaningless in this series. It beats the alternative though.
 
2021-06-20 9:34:44 PM  
Trae and Embiid's stat lines would've convinced me that the Hawks were down 20

This. I've been following the score on my phone but not paying attention to anything else. Few minutes ago looked at the box score and saw Trae was 1-9 and did a damn double take. What's really going on in this game?

I almost feel like I was in a coma for an unspecified amount of time because I feel lost. Nate McMillan stopped playing yesterday but now he is a coach and Dwight Howard is with the 76'ers?

Good on McMillan, those Sonics teams were fun to watch.
 
2021-06-20 9:51:46 PM  
this score has a very yesterday feel to it
 
2021-06-20 9:52:20 PM  
embiid should have shot that 3
 
2021-06-20 9:54:38 PM  

medius: embiid should have shot that 3


I didn't see the play, but it seems like a recurring theme. I still like their chances, though.
 
2021-06-20 10:07:56 PM  
Given the size of the fight in the dog, I think Trae would kick Ben's ass
 
2021-06-20 10:09:21 PM  
These teams are starting to tense up.
 
2021-06-20 10:10:18 PM  
I'd be satisfied watching the Bucks beat either of these teams.
 
2021-06-20 10:10:28 PM  
Interestingly officialiated game.

This.
