:laugh2: So I completely forgot to put my picks over the past coupled days... my bad!

I know everyone's watching the Celts-Warriors game... but I feel bad for the Pacers :(... The Oladipo injury probably killed their season... but if he can come back fully, then it might be a small blessing in disguise as it means guys like Turner will have more of a presence in their plays. Also, after this season, there might be a bit of a fall back from some of the East teams so they could move up (E.g. If Toronto/Boston/Milwaukee loses Kawhi/Irving/Middleton, it could have a significant impact)

it was the smart play by us though.. we needed embiid to rest... now he gets like 6 days of rest. We basically forfeited a game we might have lost anyway without butler.

Impressed by the Celtics staying with GS. The pace is definitely in GS favor and they withstood a classic Curry barrage. Thatís when GS normally blows peoples doors off. Celtics are definitely hitting harder shots. The Celtic are so concerned with Curry they are giving up more easy looks. Good game so far

The refs are fine

They are, but the contact seem to be going more the Celtics way because they are being more aggressive and are creating more contact on every play. It's the way it's always been though, particularly for big games, the more aggressive/physical team tends to get an advantage with the refs. It's up to the Warriors to respond and play the same way, it's just that they don't do it as often as the Celtics so they may not be able to step that up quickly.

And Ewing, the Celtics are snake biting the Warriors shooters and not getting the calls while Celtics bump into Warriors defenders and do get the call. It's not terrible, but the Celtics are taking advantage of the refs.

LOL, not saying that. It's a good game. The Warriors are shooting below their normal level because the Celtics are playing aggressive good playoff D and they are getting playoff calls. The Warriors are playing softer and paying the price.

Yeah it was an ugly end to a very good game. I think Klay got away with a total mugging leading up to that last Irving fade-away but overall your guys did a great job on him. I think the Warriors ability to brother Irving without giving up easy looks was the difference, they did a very good job

The Warriors players were trying to throw it away too.

Their offense in the last 2 mins was awful. All he had to do was call a time out and rest everyone. All they did was basically go full hero ball on every possession after having a relatively good offensive performance living the ball all game.

Overall, the Cs bench lost them the game. Awful performances from Rozier and Hayward. Brown had a strong game imo, continuing his strong play. But they need to figure that situation off. Just an average game from those guys and the game swings the other way. Personally, Rozier needs to go for a 3/D guard and playmaking duties go to Hayward to run that bench unit. Right now it feels like they are trying to fit mismatching pieces. It stinks because the starters basically went toe to toe with the GS starters.

But still, the hero ball was probably the players not running the plays Brad wanted them to run. And the Warriors didn't have a great game either. Better to credit both to good defense on both sides. It was a good game ... it almost seems like the top 4 teams in the east are going to get a bye in the first round, then it's going to get rough. I'm looking forward to the playoffs already.

Morey tweeted a picture of him and Brewer in August or September with a heading akin to ďSomethingís about to go downĒ.........and then nothing. No idea what that was about. I liked Brewer when he was in Houston but he canít shoot threes very well and thatís what was needed. Heís got some great hussle but he makes bonehead plays sometimes. Gerald Green basically is in that spot now and when Green gets hot, itís a game changer.

But I remember the first few weeks of Brewer in Houston when he was killing it. Letís see if he falls off a cliff in Philadelphia the way he did with the Rockets.

Teams plan to double and triple Curry, but they can't, not because of fear of KD and Klay but because the offense has them all moving and setting screens for each other. The offense is why they get wide open shots ... and of course Curry is the engine of the offense.

That said, Harden's role with the Rockets is more critical to them than Curry's is to the Warriors no question.
