I think the forgotten hero of these playoffs is the crowd. The Utah game was awesome the crowd was so much fun.




I agree. It's been nice to watch sporting events with the passion from the crowds, baseball regionals as well. I would have to think the players would rather play games like this on the road with the crowd hating them than play another game in an empty stadium.

I don't think most people realize how miserable this year had to be for NBA players, getting tested literally every day, all the stupid protocols, playing in empty stadiums, not allowed to do anything outside the game. Yeah they are millionaires, but this year sucked donkey dick for them. I'm surprised you didn't hear more complaining and issues b/c of it.

re: Random Playoff Observations Thread
I could see the Hawks getting rid of Reddish, but Huerter is shooting like 60% from 3 in the playoffs. So I’m not seeing it. But Maybe with a first I suppose. But I don’t see them having much of a reason to Trade for Zo and pay him 20mil. That’s a backwards move for ATL imo.

We blew it trading with the Hawks when they appeared down and out. To be fair, the entire league did.

if there's a realistic possibility if a guy like NAW or Kira improves enough during the season that we could get one of Bogdanovich/Huerter in a trade.


bogdanovic won mvp of his euro league.
he won a euro championship.
hes strong and can take the big shot.

on what planet do the hawks prefer kira pg to a stud in his prime?
hawks pg is handled by trae.
ok. then trade naw.
if kira or naw gets good enough by 2022 trade deadline to make this trade with a lakers #1 thrown in into a win win fair trade do you still think it's a good idea?

re: Random Playoff Observations Thread
Donovan Mitchell is a stud and one of the best closers in the league. It's why Utah has been a 50 win team the last 3 years.
Until BI can be that closer, we aren't winning 50 games a year either b/c i don't think Zion can be that kind of closer without a jump shot.
And if BI hadn't become that guy yet, i have a hard time believing he ever will, and that's not to say he isnt' a great player.
multiple guys can score 25 a night. Some guys score 20 of them in the first 3 quarters regularly. some guys score 10-12 of them in the last 8 minutes of a game, and are closers. We need the latter.

Yup and not only is he a closer he is a real leader that amps his entire team and arena up. Mitchell is special. I’m not even sure Utah would or should trade him straight up for Zion in today’s NBA, let alone BI.

NBA pregame show on TNT is just awesome television. If you missed what just happened, I won't spoil it -- describing a joke isn't as funny as what happened.

But I could watch those guys even without a game coming up.

Jrue has been a trainwreck this brooklyn series offensively and defensively. We did good Sons

Just a few days ago, LE was arguing he wasn't any better than Ingram.

Jrue came up with a clutch go ahead bucket with about 15 seconds left. He still played pretty badly overall though (4-14 fg). Giannis and Middleton combined for 68 out of the Bucks 86 points lol.

He played good defense on Kyrie tonight

It was better. Kyrie still got the better of him. Lopez and Tucker were the 2 guys that played all nba level defense tonight. Games 1 and 2 were atrocious though. His effort level and overall competitive spirit was just really bad. To be fair, Kyrie and Durant are 2 guys Jrue has never been able to guard that well. He fares much better on Harden, but he isn’t playing. Brooklyn is a tough matchup even for Jrue, but you’d think he’d be able to score a bit better on Kyrie than he has up to this point.

Kyrie went 9-for-22, that's good defense

whole damn thing is great.

1. zion must learn a real jumper.
2. ingrams pee pee shrinks as t approaches zero.
3. yes by god I would deal both zo and Ingram and Pels #10ish first for mitchell.

Mitch is untouchable tbh. He’s a star. He’s a good looking face of the franchise (no homo). He leads the best team in the west. And most importantly he wants to be in Utah. Not many players want to be there. Would be very low upside for Utah to trade him for almost any player or any asset in the league.

Snyder is more important than Mitch at Pels...Snyder is a very good coach.

Kyrie is injured and back in the locker room. Didn't look good the way he was acting when he went down.
