It would be something if Tristan Thompson was the catalyst for a Laker comeback in this series. That thing would likely be Thompson family fanfic but you never know.

Amazing that lebron drew two charges on plays for which he has never been called for an offensive foul.

You guys are crazy if you think that Joker is better than Tatum.
Sign me up for that insanity. Tatum may have more pure talent and physical gifts. But Joker sees the game differently.

And that thing about the greatest players making those around them better? Yeah, Jokic does that better than anyone currently in the league. I’ve watched a ton of Nuggets basketball this year (thank you NBA League Pass), and he’s turned everyone on that team into better passers.

I have to say, love watching this guy.
the biggest thing for me, aside from his massive skills, is that I'm not sure he's ever really protested a call to the officials. He's rolled his eyes harder at some than others, but compared to every other all-NBA player out there, except for maybe SGA, he's pretty much the most respectful of the officials. Just makes it so much easier to root for him as a neutral.

They need to do something about letting the ball roll up the floor already. That was ridiculous

That dime to Gordon - only one person in the world can do that. Well, a lot more than one. But nobody as good as that dude.

Yeah, it’s not insane at all to think Jokic is better than Tatum. I think it’s actually the reverse (it’s insane to think Tatum is better than Jokic)

I mean whatever your opinion on Jokic v Tatum, it’s not “crazy” to think Jokic is better. (In other words, don’t feed the troll).

The one thing from watching all of these other teams play offense is how easily they can manipulate the other team to get the match up they want. Every time down it’s a pick to get into a favorable match up….
I don’t know how the Celtics seemingly are never able to do that
