Luka seems like kind of a shitty teammate. He just threw his arms up at other people’s D After running back halfass and standing around.

Harlan is a top 3 announcer in all of US sports.
Wow, disagree completely. It could be partly Reggie’s fault, but I never get the sense he’s really seeing or thinking the game well (unlike Breen). He does have a nice voice, tho.

I actually like SVG, so maybe I’m just weird.

Hard to come back when refs call a bunch of Mickey Mouse fouls and put Dallas in the bonus with 9 min left. Now they can’t play physically.

I like how the refs out of that commercial seem to have decided that the Wolves can now just hit people in the face. And coincidentally Ant wakes up.

Typical Harlan: Ant brings down the house with the dunk of the series … like a full three seconds later, “WHAT A PLAY BY EDWARDS!” He couldn’t have prepared himself when Ant was in mid flight?

Minnesota can hang with Dallas if one of their two stars stinks, if both stink they lose, if both are good (we'll never know because... KAT).

Lively being out is a problem for Dallas. He might be the OG Anunoby holding that defense together.

Wanted Minnesota to win until they looked like the nineteen thousand and nothing to two thousand and right fucking now Harlem Globetrotteers

I'm not sure why minny doesn't push the pace more. Wear out Luka, and Ant is better in transition than in the half court.

Draymond is such a shitheel that I am now rooting for Gobert and against Kyle Anderson

Can Boston handle Kyrie better than Minny? (and Doncic while I’m asking)
Jrue/White will give him fits, but he’s a the best ball handler ever in my opinion. You don’t stop him, but I think we can frustrate him enough to win a 4 out of 7.

The Celtics have the best defensive backcourt in the game, and (if he plays), an elite rim protector in Porzingis.

Sadly, the Celtics' amazing defensive backcourt has been abused at times by McConnell and Nembhard, neither of whom are even in the same universe as Kyrie and Doncic. And Boston doesn't have *quick* defensive guards. Kyrie should have no problem scoring. But I don't know that Dallas has enough overall to beat Boston, should that be the matchup.
