    I'm pretty convinced we would have taken Boston out in the first round given the chance.

    Too bad we played Cleveland round 1

    And three point shooting is King in the NBA. May have to keep CJ despite his flaws.

    If both teams sweep, there will be NINE days between the end of the conference finals and the beginning of the NBA finals. NINE.
    What do you mean "if?"

    Cleveland and Golden State look like Team USA compared to everyone else.

    Don't forget the disclaimer. The Spurs are wounded.


    Remember when we could have gotten 1-2 solid players and a possible Top 3 draft pick in the 2017 NBA Draft by trading away Paul George?

    Because the Pacers barely made the playoffs after a dreadful season.

    BTW, Boston beat Indiana 3-1 this year.

    Playoffs are a whole different animal, Boston is figuring that out right now....

    Not saying the Pacers would win, but wow this is embarrassing.

    I don't think this is a particularly hot take, but Boston looks really small.

    Boston needs a player better than Isaiah Thomas...dude is a great regular season player but can be taken out of the game with a decent plan. Cavs aren't giving him the lane and playing with size to make him shoot over the top.
    "It's just unfortunate that we've been penalized so much this year and nothing has happened to the Pistons, the Palace or the city of Detroit," he said. "It's almost like it's always our fault. The league knows it. They should be ashamed of themselves to let the security be as lax as it is around here."

    Wow. It would be sad to see no more Lebron vs PG. About the only real threat to Lebron in the east.
    Only way to get better is to play the best.
    A threat usually means they have won against you in a series that mattered. PG hasn't done that so no the only real threat to LeBron is an injury to Kyrie Irving.

    The Cavs may join the Pacers tonight in being the only NBA team ever to outscore an opponent by at least double.

    There's no way that Paul George is watching this game and not thinking to himself "They need me.".

    Name one person in america who picked anybody but the Cavs to win the East? Name someone who said Boston was a contender?

    CLE swept Indy
    CLE swept Tor
    CLE sweeps Boston

    In order to be a "pretender" you have to be a "contender"
