    Bucks and Clippers would have clowned this Rockets team in the playoffs. Don't get it twisted.

    Funny they lost another 3-1 lead I guess it’s a clippers thing.

    My thoughts exactly. I don’t want any part of that Clipper staff. I didn’t see anything impressive about their offense or defense. They never adjusted defensively throughout the last 3 games and didn’t have an answer when Malone started running his triangle set. The double team on Jokic played right into their hands.

    My other thought is that I’d love to see the Rockets hire a coach that runs a more balanced attack with a low post defender. Denver is balanced on both sides of the ball unlike the Rockets. We saw tonight that regardless of the talent on the Clippers rosters, the lack of inside threat between Zubac and Harrell made it easy for zDenver to defend. The Clippers also had trouble driving the lanes knowing a 7’ Jokic was standing in the way.

    It's a Doc thing. He blew his first 3-1 lead with the Magic.

    Kawhis physical break down and his decline on defense is obvious from his best years in San Antonio and even last year in Toronto .His quad issues seem to be degenerative and will probably never get better. At 28 you hate to see a great talent start to decline physically

    Media awfully silent their golden boy humble kawhi **** the bed...

    Harden and lebron would get eviscersted for years for the joke of a performance he showed tonight.

    Anyone who wants to claim this fraud is in the same stratosphere as bron better get their brain examined

    dude is a product of the spurs system and Kyle mother****ing Lowry.

    Otherwise he’s a slightly better Harrison Barnes

    Oh it does matter. You win rings and people ignore context. I've been saying for years that Kawhi plays in a different league than other superstars. Tons of rest, great coaches, and amazing supporting casts. He lost that this year and suddenly he's a choker. The reality is it's incredibly hard to carry a team for 7 games. He had 2 bad games this series and his team lost both. That's the story of Harden's entire career. But one guy is an all time great and the other is choker.

    Does that mean Harden is just a bit better than OJ Mayo

    Kawhi was trash tonight couldn’t score on mismatches against Jokic or Murray . Even on hardens worst nights he creates shots for teammates.

    Technically Clippers won more games in the 2nd round.

    they choked a 3-1 lead again tho..that sounds a lot worse than the gentle man sweep we had.

    Give props to Denver though.

    They did it without having altitude.

    All I know is this makes our loss hurt less. Would not want to be a Bucks or Clippers fan right about now, they were destined to be in their conference championship series for sure. The only thing that does hurt is that the Nuggets of all teams come back not once but twice 1-3. This is the team that everyone was laughing at them and not taking them serious at all. Mad props to them for what they have achieved.

    I think the finals gonna be either Lakers vs Celtics or Nuggets vs. Heat

    what a weird playoffs this has been, so without fans or home court advantage, can we say these are the truly best teams in the NBA?

    Just listen to playoffs pansies post game comments.This guy thinks this wasn’t a championship or bust season. It’s unbelievable how delusional this guy is and it’s that complacency that finally derailed them.
