Thread: NBA Snoozefest 2016-2017

    Well I didn't want to say anything after Game 3, but Gerald fucking Green is apparently the answer to the Celtics catching up in the second chance points department. Amir Johnson getting perma-benched because he couldn't do anything against Lopez. Without that, he was a net negative and didn't have a place on the court. I actually like Amir but whatever it takes to win I can get behind. Horford doesn't do much better on Lopez but part of the reason why Horford didn't start the series guarding Lopez is because Brad didn't want him getting into foul trouble wrestling in the paint. When you're down 2-0 to hell with that logic. Tell Horford to man up and box out. And he did just that in Game 4.

    I don't like when teams aren't healthy but the Celtics needed a win in a bad way and Rondo is being appreciated in the basketball world again. I think without the ACL tear he could've been on his way to a HoF career but it's good to see that he's raised his level of play again.






    Loved this. I'll never not like reporters getting shit on.

    I never realized til that press conference how high Westbrook's voice is.

    We better not lose the series now. Little Fred's reaction is too good.

    Woo! The Wizards put me through a bit of a scare there, but they advanced!

    Nate, what do you think their chances will be against either the Celtics or the Bulls?

    Pssssh, the Wizards game finished 30 minutes before the Celtics one. And we were blowing them out at the time.

    I should be worried about Wall/Beal but I think it's more important to make sure the other starters don't get confident. Porter and Morris give us problems on the glass despite not being the biggest players. Gortat is always an issue to deal with being one of the few actual centers in the league.

    Looks like we're starting Green for this series.....expect that to change by Game 3 or 4 lol. I have a feeling he'll be a liability against the Wizards. We'll probably have a Jaylen Brown sighting.

    I'm not a huge fan of how both teams played Friday night and now have to play Sunday afternoon. At least make it Sunday night.

    I'm wondering what's next for Chris Paul and the Clippers after another playoff exit.

    Another starter hurt facing the Celtics, yikes. I was looking forward to Morris and Olynyk battle each other at 100% That's just a fight waiting to happen. Morris says he'll come back next game but it doesn't seem like something he can fully recover from very quickly. He might actually hurt the Wizards a bit depending on when the Celtics decide to play small ball.

    It'd be interesting if CP3 changed teams but I'm sure he loves being in LA. Everyone and their mom is predicting Griffin won't be there any longer. His stock has fell pretty far and hasn't made the last 2 All Star teams so LA just might not be interested in retaining him. Griffin, wouldn't voluntarily leave unless there's a situation like Wade's last offseason.


    Got 2/8 predictions right last round. Incoming Round 2 predictions without write ups because itsasnoozefest I'm lazy.

    GS in 5
    SA in 5
    BOS in 7
    CLE in 6


    Can the same San Antonio team that needed 6 games to beat Memphis end the Rockets' season in just 5? Yeah, that's my long shot pick.

    Isaiah Thomas dropping 53 on his sister's birthday. Can't make this up.

    Assuming both teams keep it up, CLE vs CEL in the eastern finals will be a sight to behold.

    On the other end, I feel like the Rockets' 3-point-mania might just be too much for the Spurs.

    Welcome to the blowout round of the playoffs....


    Cavaliers and Warriors getting a week off in the playoffs? Well the Celtics are in the middle of their week off too. There hasn't been a game since the 2nd and they play again on the 10th.
    Spoiler:
    The Celtics did their very best to throw away the momentum from one of the all time best playoff performances by going consecutive games in which they gave up 20+ point runs. Even with homecourt advantage, I don't feel good about the series at all.

    Thank god for the NHL playoffs, at least that's not totally predictable.

    Spurs-Rockets has also been predictable, but in the "this is going to be a back and forth affair" sort of way. If Kawhi is out for more than a game though...

    Poor D'Antoni...getting beat by Pop yet again. I was surprised the Rockets got hot enough to win 2 games though. That series teased us in Game 5 but we're back to our normally scheduled blowouts. I wouldn't mind the Celtics blowing out the Wizards again though....we could even get a 40 point win by sitting Isaiah if tonight was any indication

    I want a game 7 so bad from this series. Not a fan of either. Just want to see more competition. Neither Wiz nor BOS seem ready for Cavs.

    Some lucky shots at the end from Horford and Wall. But 3 is greater than 2. Now the pressure flips back to the Celtics in Game 7. I wish I could just hibernate until Monday.

    I don't care what the Cavaliers might end up doing to us, I just want a Washington team to make it past the second round for once...

    That was a great win and overall a good series despite the blowouts of Games 3-5. Contract year Kelly Olynyk took about 6 months to show up but I'm glad he could get us to the ECF.

    Celtics in 4. Isaiah gets a growth spurt from 5'9" to 9'5" and Jaylen Brown averages a quintuple double.




    As for the other series, my Warriors hate is at an all-time high. I'm pretty pissed off that the Spurs were robbed off a win and their best player. If Kawhi can't suit up, I'm considering not even watching the series at all. KD with the hardest road....
