Draymond Green getting ejected then coming back into the game is a Buffalo Wild Wings commercial in real life

Draymond Green: ""We've got a golden opportunity to go & close this thing out at home."

Draymond Green: "You've got to give them credit, they were very aggressive. But when everyone has 2 fouls, it's hard to match the physicality."

Draymond Green on Technical Foul-Up: "I don't pay that much attention to anybody in Cleveland, honestly. Don't seem to be the sharpest people around."

Draymond Green: "I don't pay attention to people in Cleveland honestly. Don't seem to be the sharpest people."

 


I don't think Draymond deserved either technical foul, and this is not a believable explanation:
 


It was also a very poorly officiated game. Refs completely lost control.
All the above being said......take away refs and I think Cavs still win this one. Hell of a performance from almost all the Cavs!!!
 


And we have more stripes:

Golden State is the better team and I expect them to close it out tomorrow night (Monday) in Oakland. I've never been to Cleveland and have no comparison. My Brother-in-law lives there and loves it......the winters are brutal.

Guys, I'm flying out to Vegas in a couple of hours and I'll be betting Game 5 (and 6 if needed - Thursday) at the sportsbook. SO, I may have some stat updates, but nothing with pictures or anything like this unless we reach a Game 7 next Sunday.

Plus, no offense to anyone who lives in Cleveland, but ... Cleveland is the lamest city in the U.S. Contrary to pop culture narrative, Cleveland does not rock, and is super lame.

Seattle, NYC, Boston, San Francisco, Chicago, Austin, even fucking Portland... these cities rock. Cleveland is exactly like it's depicted on that episode of 30 Rock that's pretty much entirely devoted to making fun of Cleveland.

Basically, Golden State cruised their way to another Championship, losing just one game in the postseason!

Best Record in Single Postseason
2017 Warriors 16-1
2001 Lakers 15-1
1983 76ers 12-1

Warriors have won their fifth NBA Championship in franchise history, including two in the last three years:
 


 


 


The Sports Book at the Mirage was packed Monday night. We arrived in time to watch the 4th Quarter and it was standing room only. The crowd was 90% Warrior fans......Golden State jerseys were 10 for every one Cavs jersey.


Best Odds to Win 2017-18 NBA Title
Warriors 1-2
Cavaliers 3-1
Spurs 12-1

Source: Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook

LeBron James was the first player to lead both teams in points, rebounds, assists, steals and blocks in a playoff series of any length.

Phil Jackson worked for the Knicks for 1,200 days. He was paid $60 million for it or $50,000 a day.

Now the Rockets have two point guards and lose their best defender (beverly). Will they move Harden to the shooting guard?

I loved CP3 and Blake Griffin together, wonder what he will be doing now.

Not only was Beverly the Rockets best defender, Patrick was also the heart of the franchise! Based on ESPN’s Real Plus-Minus, Chris Paul was NBA’s second-most productive player on a per-minute basis last season, behind LeBron James. Speculation by those "in the know" say George Paul will sign with the Rockets once Free Agency starts on July 1st. If this happens, look out because Paul George is one of the best shooters in the league.

Harden greatly increased his number of assist this season which was part of the reason many considered him MVP. Alas, James still resorted to dribbling the clock out and firing it up at the buzzer......if Paul can help prevent that, I'm all for it!

There was a big headline in Dutch biggest newspaper:

Nederlander ontwerpt nieuw logo NBA



that big it was. Dutchman designs new NBA logo.
Then I check US press, his name is hardly even mentioned. He co-designed the font which is still very cool.

* Bump *

wake up everyone! The play-offs are starting soon! Who's going to win it this year? I'm pretty much clueless, both Cleveland and Golden State are not excelling as they used to this season, and Curry is out for at least the first round. And to be honest I don't know much about the other teams. I used to be a fan of the Clippers, because of CP3 and Griffin, but since they left elsewhere, I have no fav team anymore :-(

I guess I'll be watching out for OKC because of Westbrook's smashing average scores all over this season. He deserves to get far this time

Ive tried to keep up with the Rockets......mostly by way of the radio call via the NBA app on my phone. Also through twitter and Houston sports radio. We currently don’t have cable / DirectTV, so ABC broadcast are the only time I get to watch on TV. I was in attendance two months ago when CP3 & the Rockets best down Golden State.

Tonight my coworker told me the Spurs really put up a fight in Coach Greg Popovich absence due to the death of his wife......but Golden State still won by 12 taking a 3-0 lead. Even with Curry out, I see Golden State sweeping their way to the Western Conference Finals, where they should face the Number One seed Rockets. CP3 & Harden may not be enough for the Rockets to beat Golden State.

Tonight (Friday, April 20) The Indiana Pacers have a great shot at home to go up 2-1 on Cleveland.
Philly & Toronto have a fighters chance in the East if Cleveland makes a First Round exit.

The above statement was Oh-So-Wrong! Golden State has lost two games so far, but are still just one win away from the Western Conference Finals......as are the Rockets!

Tonight, Boston and Cleveland look to sweep their second round series. After a tough Seven game series against Indiana......and with the Toronto series being played every-other-day, I thought the team with the best regular season record for the East might actually have a chance. Could Dwane Casey be the first Coach Of The Year fired for losing in the second round of the playoffs?

The Boston Celtics make an easy go of it easily beating Cleveland to take a 2-0 Eastern Conference lead......with Kyrie Irving wearing street clothes on the bench!!

Kevin Durant was in FULL Beast mode in Game One of the Western Conference Finals, scoring 37 as the Warriors won 119-106

WOW - what a Game Two! The Rockets tie the Series winning 127-105. It was the first time this post season that Golden State faced a deficit greater than 18......Rockets won it by 22.

Stephen Curry: Games w/ 1 or fewer three-pointers
2015 playoffs: 0 out of 21 games
2016 playoffs: 1 out of 16 games
2017 playoffs: 1 out of 17 games
2018 West Finals: 2 out of 2 games

Eric Gordon outscored the the Splash Brothers by himself in Game 2

Game 2 was the 4th-worst playoff loss for the Warriors under Steve Kerr.
However, Golden State won the next game after 4 of their 5 worst losses under Kerr

Western Conference Game 3
Houston 85
Golden State 126

The below quote is from May 17, 2017
Quote:

......368 days later, the Houston Rockets are now the Golden State Warriors victim for largest playoff win = 41 points

The Rockets' 41-point defeat is their worst playoff loss in franchise history. It's also their worst loss in any game since 1986, when Houston fell 136-80 to Seattle.

Percentage of Houston 3-point-attempts classified as catch-and-shoot, via NBA-dot-com:

Regular-season: 61.2%
Playoffs: 49.7%
Conference finals so far: 41.6%

Golden States Defense is soooo good, especially at home......last night was the Rockets first time to NOT REACH 100 POINTS this playoffs!

Being blown out by 41 points, the taste is very reminiscent of when Harden shut it down last year in the elimination game against the Spurs. Harden was decent in Game 3, but Trevor Ariza flat out shut it down......and Chris Paul made ZERO IMPACT for the second time in three games.

Do Believe Steph Curry Has It Fixed

Steph Curry says winning by 41 in game 3 has no bearing on game 4: "I wish it was a cumulative score. It'd be nice. Doesn't work that way..Like golf. Zero-zero come game 4."

Kevin Durant on whether Warriors like when Stephen Curry swears because it’s so out of character: “F—- yeah.”

Mike D'Antoni: "They get it. They know. There are things we need to correct that are very correctable. But these are professionals. They’ve been in every situation; down, up, kicked around, been on top. They know. They’re ready to go. We’ll see if we can get it done."

More MDA: “To me, Golden State has all the pressure. They got to win tomorrow. We should come in with a little bit of swagger and giddyup in our game and see if we can get it."

Andre Iguodala's left knee contusion worsened overnight. Didn't practice today. Unlikely he plays, which likely means a Looney start, more Nick Young possibly, maybe a Quinn Cook appearance.



Boston at Cleveland Game 4 about to tip:

Cavaliers are 7-0 over the last 10 postseasons when Bill Kennedy officiates.

Eastern Conference Game 4
Boston 102
Cleveland 111

Last night was the first game of the Conference Finals (West & East) to finish in single digits (9 points) = no close games!

44 points on 28 shots for LeBron

Was Stevens was outcoached in Cleveland?
Boston has only won one playoff game on the road this post season.

Boston’s awesome at home

Boston’s coming off two REALLY bad performances (they were closer today but still sloppy)

Cavs are bad on the road but Cavs are probably better on road than Celtics.

So Game 5 tomorrow goes to......?


LeBron is now the All Time Playoff Record Holder for:
Points
Steals
Field Goals
Minutes
Buzzer Beaters
Game Winners (<5 secs)
PPG in Game 7s

40 point playoff games while shooting 60%+:

LeBron 2018 playoffs: 4
Kobe entire career: 1


40+ Point Playoff Games:

Jordan: 38
LeBron: 25
Shaq & Kobe combined: 25
Allen, Bird, Garnett, Hondo, Pierce, and Thomas combined: 17

Jerry West, who turns 80 next week, indeed had six 40-point games in the 1969 playoffs WITHOUT a 3-point line.

40-point games (while shooting above 50%) in the 2018 playoffs:

LeBron James: 6
All other NBA players combined: 5


LeBron James in his last 10 quarters:

91 Points
32-53 FG( 60%)
8-14 3PT (57%)

LeBron James

Against Boston, 32 PPG, 54%.

Against Toronto, 34 PPG, 55%.

Against Indiana, 34 PPG, 55%.

Has not mattered one bit who has been guarding him.

For those looking for s wee bit of Rockets hope tonight......the Rockets beat Golden State twice during the regular season. What did those two games in common? Andre Iguodala didn't play in either.

Tonight could be a career defining game for James Harden!

Western Conference Game 4
Houston 95
Golden State 92


Golden State started the game leading 12-0, there were just 6:00 minutes remaining in the 1st Q when the Rockets scored their first two points.

Rockets had a 53-46 lead at halftime.


This is the first time in the Steve Kerr era (regular season or playoffs), that the Warriors outscored their opponent by 15+ points in the 3rd quarter and lost.

They were 51-0 entering tonight when outscoring an opponent by 15+ points in the 3rd quarter.

Durant, Curry, Klay and Draymond all played the entire third quarter......were they too spent to play the 4th??

Golden State had a 82-70 with 11;00 minutes remaining in the game.

Rockets ended the game on a 25-10 run!!!

Rockets held the Golden State Warriors to 12 4th Q points and 92 points for the game!!!

This will be the first time the Warriors have had a series stretch to at least six games since signing Kevin Durant.

Steph Curry: "Now we have to fight and understand that this is a true playoff experience."



Rockets* committed 4 Turnovers in the 1st Q and had 6 the rest of the game.

Warriors were 51-0 entering tonight when outscoring an opponent by 15+ points in the 3rd quarter.

Rockets HAVE NOT LOSS back-2-back games in a row since January 6

Anyone else notice how it’s not even close how Oracle responds to Curry compared to KD. Durant might as well be Iguodala......it’s two steps from golf claps compared to Curry.

Trevor Ariza on Rockets' defense: "That was the last piece for us to get over the hump and becoming one of the best teams in the league. ... Tonight in the fourth quarter when it mattered, we got stops. It let us get back in the game, it let us take the lead and it let us win."

James Harden was the games leading scorer on ONLY 5 free throw attempts

Tonight could be a career defining game for James Harden!

Klay’s final shot was awkward and tough!
Golden State fans are now worried about Iggy's & Klay’s knees for game 5.

Klay airballed an 18-footer after returning from the knee issue. He just hasn’t looked comfortable since Game 1......Games 5-7 will be played every-other-day = no time for rest!

After Game 4, Klay Thompson said his knee issue is “nothing that will keep me out of Game 6.” Ummmmm, what about Game 5?????

Having a little more time to digest Rockets EPIC 4th Quarter and win at Goldenen State:

Warriors 0-6 from 3-point land in the 4th.

Warriors out rebounded Rockets 49-41 for the game.
Through 3 quarters, GS had out rebounded Rockets 41-25.
TURNING POING = Rockets doubles up Warriors out rebounding them 16-8 in 4th.

The Rockets have now turned the entire season into a Best of 3, vs the Warriors, with 2 of 3 games in Houston......who wouldn’t wish for that at the he beginning of the season?






For Celtic fans looking for another bit of hope tonight:

LeBron James is 0-3 in Game 5’s against Boston
