They are winning but the game is actually pretty ugly. They are shooting 38% and are 3 of 17 from 3

Knicks are down 2 and shooting 33% from the field. If they win though we can credit the great movement that was created by melo getting ejected. I mean who cares about what actually happened

Tonights knick game was the worst officiated game I have seen all year. I'd say that if the Knicks won too bc they were awful both ways. The refs definitely were more impactful then anyone else on the court. I don't understand when it seems like these guys are looking to get noticed

Torrid start early, but DeRozan won't be quiet for long.

Big point guards are the new thing. I mean Lebron somewhat is. Giannis. Denver has Jokic. Kidding kind of.

lol, please

Outstanding defense thus far. And 42 in a quarter lol.

Fitz is right, won't happen often against this team lol, we need to capitalize and maintain the lead all game.

DeRozan is like Curry in that he just does flat out spectacular stuff as he navigates to the rim.

BOOYA T-Rizzle!!

It's just without LeBron, the East don't intimate me for some reason. It's like if an elite Eastern conference team defeats my Rockets, it feels like an upset. I don't know why, just a personal opinion or feeling.

Toronto needs to add that extra gear on the defensive end. It looks way too easy for the Warriors.

oh man what a dagger from Klay

raptors in 7, hard to compare them since we don't see each other much but we did give them a pounding last time out :D

Rockets of course!

1. I'm a homer and bet with my heart
2. I honestly think any of the current top 5 teams in the West will win a series against any team in the East except the Cavs.

Very entertaining game but I'm really unimpressed with the defense from both teams.

Curry with a TERRIBLE turnover

12-29-2016, 01:49 AM
Warriors can't be this bad in late game execution? Durant is nowhere to be found yet again.

lol, please
12-29-2016, 01:49 AM
Huge block by Durantula!!!

First 10pt loss for Raptors. I love the fight despite lacking the elite talent. GS is just too good

No, but I don't like our chances much when Lowry's trying to guard Durant

Missed the game. Did they do that? I remember in the playoffs cp3 got the call to check kd in a pressure scheme and it worked like a charm. Sometimes the best way to slow down a great scorer is to get under him.

I dont recall Durant scoring against Lowry, so yea, it was effective in small sample size.

Raps made their runs going really small and yeah it actually worked. It was interesting hearing Casey after the game. He said that they run a lot of "trick plays", but the Raps actually were able to switch quickly and read those back door cuts better in the 4th when going really small. You can't have bigs in the game. Unless they have lateral quickness. That's where they hurt you.

I wanna ask Celtics fans something... do you guys think the Celtics play with more passion and intensity against the Cavs?

Admittedly I haven't seen much of the Celtics this year but it feels like they always play us with so much anger. Like it's personal. I always feel like if you guys played other teams the way you played us you would be a 60 win team.

I don't think so.

I feel like they play every team hard. They pride themselves on that. They're gritty and tough. Starting with guys like Smart and Crowder, it's the teams culture.

They generally do, they have a top 5 offense (Celts D is also pretty bad this year... tho' they've improved from their terrible start).

i am more worried about russ.... i thought he would be the next magic but i am not sure anyone plays worse defense... its like he only cares about scoring.... it pisses me off because there isnt a player i liked more outside of embiid coming out of the draft

that is what bothers me... its not even a stretch saying he gives 0 effort on defense... he literally does nothing and has no emotion... if he didnt understand defense and got burned i could deal with it which that is the case as well but its also effort... he has no effort or energy on defense and its a joke... on top of that he has become a lazy passer so quite literally all he does is shoot/score and because of that every once in a while he will have a game where he drops 11-15 for like 30 points and a few assists but most of the time its 3/12 or something and he his -10 plus because of his pis poor defense... all that talent going to waste because of effort and it annoys the **** out of me.

i watched this dude like i did embiid... loved this dude and thought he would be the next magic.... he is so far away its sad. I am not sure he is even a starter at this point... towns/porz are going to run away with this draft while oka/russ are going to be looked at as massive busts if they dont figure **** out.
