The first game is the only remotely interesting one to me, especially now that the East is a log jam at the moment. Expect that to change when Irving gets back and re-acclimatized. When is that gonna happen by the way?

Watching Cavs/Celtics right now and it helps put into perspective what a showcase Warriors games were on that road trip. That game had the crowd feel of the NBA Finals - truly - and this is... just a game. So quiet for what it possibly the two best teams in the East facing off. Bradley was Tony Allen on roids last game, now he's just lumbering around.

I semi take it back actually, Bradley's dominating on the offensive end. That 1st half last game though, he was like a gun for hire seeing red. Never seen him play like that.

How is Kyrie not playing in this game? He's been sprinting for over a month and practicing in full for over 10 days. What are they waiting for? Makes me wonder if there are setbacks that we are not hearing about. There's no reason to sit him at this point.

Cavs have been doing this with Irving his whole career. I'm hearing he'll be back Thursday against the Thunder or the following game against the 76ers.

Celtics trying to start this extremely physical nonsense again. They were unbelievably dirty in last year's playoffs. For that I hope we don't see them in this year's playoffs.

I swear playing us is Jae Crowder's championship.

Sullinger is money on that long range jumper. Don't know why he's always open.

Yeah, I've noticed that with Irving. Seems strange though with him being healthy for so long. I suppose they don't have much to play for in the East but still.

Celtics are the most physical team in the league right now. And this is without Smart. I actually think that will be your ECF opponent. And I'm hoping so tbj. They will break a team down over 5+ games, and if the Warriors make it through the West it will be through OKC and/or the Spurs, which will both be incredibly tall orders. The Clippers will thrash in the playoffs as well. WCF sleeper once they get it going.

I don't think Tommy Heinsohn likes LeBron very much.

I forget his coworkers name but Tommy was jocking Curry in that matchup for the first 10 minutes and he sort of stood quiet. Then Curry got a questionable call in his favor and he "welcomed Tommy back" to the broadcast after he lashed out in a tirade. I was cracking up. Heinsohn is salty personified. Cracks me up.

Celtics don't lack confidence that's for sure. If they reached the ECF I would be terrified. Very well coached team. Just need one legit star.

Yep. Even a guy like Draymond Green or Drummond would put them over the edge imo. Very, very well ran squad and indeed a task to take on in a series. I don't envy their matchup(s).

Annnnd Shumpert leaves the game with an injury.

We'll never be healthy enough to win a ring. :(

Rubio is so underrated. May be the best passer in the NBA. His playmaking is other-worldly sometimes.

Rockets game just started. 10:10 P.M. tip off. I'm on the East coast and with the Rockets playing out West, this game won't end until around 12:30-1:00 in the morning. Why am I doing this to myself. This team does not play defense at all. Why am I staying up watching this joke of a team. This team better start waking up. Last thing I want to do is go to bed annoyed.

Cousins and Howard going at it tonight lol

Yeah, did you see Cousins just start swatting at Howard when he was posting Cousins up?

Plus ...Cousins has a technical already.

I feel sorry for the Bucks against a rested GSW later this week. They are going to punish them for that L.

I think the Lakers challenge them tonight also.

Between those two, they have an iq of a 6 year old.

Refs just let them go.

Hang in there bud. It's late on the east. I'm dying here in the H and it's only 9:40.

Help is coming. I expect some trades by January 15th. (Need better defense though)

Brewer and Jones probably.

Lakers up 9 over the Bucks at the half. Not surprised. Wish I was downtown, I'd have bet on them to cover pretty big.

Kobe has been slowly improving all season. Let's go bucks!

Howard and Cousins are both pathetic in the post. Cousins waits around for the help and then chucks a pitiful shot anyway, and Howard just still has zero touch. The whole game is a clinic in dumb turnovers, chucking 3s, and hoping your zone can bail you out defensively.

Lakers blew out the Bucks. Up 20 with 6 to go in the 4th. I rest my point.

Russell is starting to gain confidence. Never wanted him tbh, wanted Okafor. I have to admit tho, his recent play has giving me hope. Really want him to prove me wrong.

Just horrible defense by the bucks. They were actually looking pretty good on that end the last few games, but today it was terrible.

Keep in mind, the Bucks were without Greg Monroe tonight. The Lakers killed them on the boards which is surprising considering our leading rebounder in on the ****ing bench.

Out of the two I'd rather have Russell. I'm sort of indifferent on him, but if I had to predict, I think he'll be very good. He has a nice touch and a super sharp eye for passing.

Kobe slowly becoming more efficient and effective. Would love to see him finish out the season with a bang.
