A buzzer beater if I ever saw one!!! Raps came close to going down 0-3, but pulled off a fantastic win!

The inbounds pass was just as amazing as the shot.

Raptors aren't out of the woods yet....they HAVE to win Game 4. The difference between 3-1 and 2-2 is huge.

Game 4 is a must win for sure. I hope game 3 gives them the boost they need to keep winning. They all looked exhausted in the last 2 mins of the game. I thought Gasol was going to fall down, he looked so wiped.

Once again, Giannis gets exposed in the playoffs when the defenses are much tighter. He needs to look at Kawhi and develop a deadly mid-range game.

Both western conference series are going seven games.

Have to give credit to Pat Riley and the culture he's established in Miami over the years. It's all about winning, buying in and holding each other accountable. Jimmy B felt he didn't have that in Philly. Miami's doing it with cats like Bam Adebayo, Tyler Herro and Kendrick Nunn.....that says something about their scouting and player developement. They're a threat to either Toronto or Boston.

As a Knicks fan, looking back, Dave Checketts should have given Riley the power he wanted.

Giannis is what he is (same with Ben Simmons)..he's never gonna be a good shooter... even though over the years Magic and Jason Kidd, and Dennis Rodman developed somewhat average 3pt set shots, they never developed a midrange game or reliable jumpers either... cant teach old dogs new tricks...Giannis just cant hit open shots consistently...and over the course of a series, teams are game planning for that, and he just doesnt have the shooters on his team to mask his own shooting deficiencies... and yes, Riley should have been given whatever he wanted to stay in N.Y.

The Bucks and the Clippers have been the two big disappointments of the play-offs.

Not surprised at the Bucks - they're a paper tiger whose star player got exposed last year against the Raptors. Unlike the Heat, Bucks are not a gritty, mentally tough team.

What an epic fail by the Clippers...this was a championship or bust season and they committed one of biggest choke jobs I've ever seen. Everyone on that team deserves blame, including the coach. They had no answer for Jokic, NONE. Denver kept killing them with the pick & pop. LOL @ their excuses, especially Paul George. Hey PG, they traded draft picks to bring you to LA. You were expected to get it done THIS YEAR. Next year's not guaranteed, especially with a healthy Golden State squad.

this is exactly the matchup imlookin for. a BIG test for the young fella. Ive been following him since he was a HS senior. He was supposed to be better than Zion Williamson before he hurt his back. The size and talent are there. And he has that uncoachable "eye of the tiger" and supreme confidence the great ones have. He can start building his brand with a good showing against the Lakers.

What a fucking epic choke job by the paper Clips. eek

Are they cursed or what? They choked another series away up 3-1 too

during the Chris Paul, Blake Griffin, DeAndre Jordan era but this recent won

has to leave a bitter taste in the mouth of Paul George, Kawai Leonard, and Doc Rivers.

The team they were built to beat won't even get a shot at them this season.

Damn Miami. I see it but I don't believe it. I thought Boston would chew them up. Must be something

in the water down there because when I look at the team on paper I don't see any superstars outside of Butler and he has been an enigma throughout his career.

Don't laugh at my funk
This funk is a serious joint

The fountain of youth.

Now seriously, if Miami somehow make it to the final, the Lakers or the Nuggets will ram'em down.

Clippers? Nothing club without winning mentality.
