Looks like Ganny is still celebrating the Sixers’ trouncing of Toronto last night.

Wake-up call for the Raptors. Black Canadians in 6. 8-)

It was a great night - still plenty of work to do. Game 4 is huge in this series for the Sixers, time to step on the neck and keep the Raptors down. Starting to really see the impact of that incredible starting 5 - things changed in the series once the Sixers starting extending the minutes of Simmons/Butler/Harris. You'll never get 40 minutes out of Embiid, but you don't need it if he plays that well in the limited minutes he does. Still a long way to go though.

First 4OT game in the playoffs since 1953, Blazers outlast Denver, 140-137. Big story is the minutes played. Jokic logged 65 minutes, McCollum tallied 60. Teams meet again Sunday, 4pm PDT.

Embiid disappears for most of Game 4, but shows up in the last five minutes with a slew of missed free throws, a travel violation, a turnover, poor defense, and a critical missed three-footer in the lane. Dude just isn't built for a deep playoff run. Simmons was a joke as well. Not counting his uncontested layup with a second left, he was good for a whopping eight points. Only Butler and Redick did anything when it counted.

Sixers hand home court advantage back to Toronto. It was all right there for them, and they couldn't get it done.

Agreed, you picked the Nets to beat the Sixers in the last series. In this actual thread.
Ivytalk wrote:Nets in five.
It's a 3 game series now, with the Sixers having to win at least one in Toronto again. We'll see, it's going to be pretty close one way or the other. Sixers stunk in Game 1 and Game 4, gutted out a win in Game 2 and looked great in Game 3. The joy is watching whatever will happen actually happen. Enjoy the games.

The sad thing is the Sixers are the better team but The Process failed miserably yesterday - as both Embiid & Simmons had clunker games. Need to take one more north of the border now. Put up or shut up time. Oh yea, Ben Simmons, check your sanity card if you think he's worth a max deal.

Can't get anymore brutal than that. Simmons had as many turnovers as shots attempted. It ain't over yet, it just feels like it is. Maybe they get to a Game 7 and hope something breaks their way. Brown may not be employed at the end of the week if they repeat last night's performance in Game 6.

Welp, the Bucks just dispatched a good Celtics team in 5 games. The Raptors series should be interesting.

Timberwolves thought Shabazz Muhammad was a better pick at #14, than Giannis Antetokounmpo, in the 2013 NBA Draft.

"Good"? One of the storylines all year have been how the Celtics really didn't mesh for most of the year and looked dysfunctional at times. It just wasn't in the cards for the Celtics this year and now they likely lose Kyrie and probably aren't in the market for AD. Big questions for the Celtics for the year ahead as to how they at least stay where they are and not regress further.

The top of the East is all in flux, will be interesting to see how it all falls out.

The top 8 teams in the NBA are all pretty good.

I don't see a single prediction in anything you quoted. Did you misread something? Come on dude, you're reaching. The top 8 have been fun to watch, quality basketball. Although I am glad to know I have you watching basketball now.

I can't possibly outreach you on this one. You keep saying the top teams could lose, but they don't. All of the results back my narrative and NONE back yours. :king:

And as far as "watch"... yeah, I check the scores on my phone so I can see how much more I know about the NBA than you who actually does watch. :lol:

Blazers tie up the series, going back to Denver for Game 7.

I was going to watch the NHL playoffs the other night. Couldn't find the station covering it so I did the next best thing - I flipped a coin over and over again to see who'd win - heads or tails. Believe you me, there is nothing more exciting in sports than a Game 7 coin flip.
Spoiler: show
Heads won, 4 flips to 3. Couldn't figure out how to have them shake hands after the series, but then I realized most teams shake hands after games anyway (for the most part, except in baseball because baseball people are weird sometimes) so I thought it wasn't really that big of a deal.
