City Thunder or Warriors?
Raptors or Cavs?

I have to weigh in on this one too as a big time Raps fan...

Unfortunately though, I think Cavs in 5...Valanciunas would've made it more competitive, but it doesn't look like he's coming back for the rest of the playoffs. (High ankle sprain) Derozan's terrible, Lowry's a gritty competitor but he can be inconsistent. They have great role players, but just not enough yet...


Thunder in 6. Maybe Durant and Westbrook's last ride together. (There's a strong argument that they're the best 2 players in the NBA...and I agree. Westbrook's an absolute beast, and Durant's an assassin.)

Looks like I'm going to game 3 on Saturday night. Looking forward to losing my shit!!!

sounds good. in the last game vs. miami they said that Valanciunas might get going in the mid of the series? true or false?

i hope for the raptors, but see cavs as a much stronger contestant due to love, irving, james and smith. way more key players than the raptors. but i hope it will be exciting.

warriors vs. thunders is more a tight one. durant and westbrook have bad days, while warriors have a couple more key players able to have a great game to step in. i am really not sure about this series. i think the warriors will take it.. but my dream finals would be

raptors vs thunders ;)

In his most recent interview, Coach Casey said that he hasn't stepped on the floor yet...(just shooting free throws). It's really too bad because he has been fantastic...almost dominant.

The team still doesn't use him well enough though. They iso-DeRozan far too much...he wastes so many possessions with long contested jumpers. I really hope the Raps don't re-sign him to a max deal in the off season...

Ya, Thunder/Warriors is a great series. Dynamic players. Curry's a superhero. Best shooter ever...already.

We will see...

Definitely didn't see THAT coming!! I feel like a horrible fan...

Best of 3 series now...anything can happen. Raptors got some confidence back. Sounds like Jonas will be back for game 5...

Biyombo has been a monster!

Aw ya!
