    cavs made the run with him on the bench, no reason to mess up chemistry. lebron was basically dominating the whole second half - no need to take his mojo away by inserting love/kyrie back in.

    there's a difference between saying that CJ Miles shouldn't have taken the last shot and saying that Harden should give him the rock on the last possession

    Harden>>>PG

    PG>>>>>>Miles

    i would root for houston. but i wouldn't be devastated if cleveland won. although once the series played out, i would be devastated if houston lost. probably resent cleveland quite a bit after that if they won. speaking of root, if ROOT Sports had ever been on my cable provider, i might have watched the rockets more and been into the team more instead of lebron's teams.

    and cleveland stupidly passes it back to lebron to be fouled. what are they doing?

    LeBron should not be shooting these free throws lmfao.

    Yeah you're the star, but be smart bruh you only shoot 67% from the free throw line lol. 50% tonight.

    no kidding. lebron supposedly always makes the right basketball play, even if it means passing up the last shot and going to a teammate. the right basketball play is to let someone else shoot the free throws. these role players can handle it. now maybe finals game 7 you have to take the pressure free throws.

    why do people always seem to make the craziest shots while you're holding onto a lead with a few seconds to go?

    insane comeback. wow.

    lebron keeps an ultimiately meaningless first round win streak going.

    another more important streak he keeps going is his record of straight playoff series with a win on the road. i think he's up to 30. and i think jordan had the record at 24 so he's way ahead of it.

    Pacers are done, up 26 in the third with the Cavs playing like crap and in 5 minutes they lose all the gap which leads to a loss...terrible.

    No doubt, he's just a top 3-5 player of all time. I don't understand people who hate watching great players achieve great things. I feel like I'm fortunate to be able to watch this level of greatness. Just like with Harden.

    Only thing better would be to have the Cleveland James be a Houston James.

    But 74% is a significant difference from 67%, especially for a perimeter player.

    But you are correct that his 3P% this year is surprisingly good at over 36%

    That's better than Harden, lol

    From what I can tell, PG will not go to or accept being #2 on any team.
