    Overwhelming with size and shooting. All of their supporting cast are shooting 3s like Ray Allen!

    Hard to lose playing like that.

    We are just bitching like bitter old men. Lol

    NBA will be hyping up a GS-LA WCF for next year...the Clippers will get tossed into the bushes as a storyline

    The Rockets never got behind by 29! Or, did they? ;)

    Whichever team lost the least badly to LA is the second best team. Count the point differentials.

    Lakers in 3

    Harden’s gonna need to team up and form a super squad if he doesn’t want to retire ringless

    no way a new coach and some MLE role player will be enough

    Terrible matchup for the heat. The looks of a sweep tbh

    It's only one game but Spo gonna have to pull a rabbit out of his ass to get back into this series. LA is confident and determined.

    But if LA is just going to steamroll to the title then the bubble was pointless. Laker dominance and ref rigging is not entertaining for anyone except Adam Silver and the bandwagoners wearing Kobe's shoes.

    To add insult to injury, Dragic, Butler, Adebayo all get a big dinged up.

    Might turn out to be the easiest Finals ever, for LeBron.

    I’ll bitch, but I ain’t bitter. Life isn’t fair! LA shouldn’t be there! I wish I could get some of whatever drug LeBron takes, dammit. The dude isn’t getting older and it’s unnatural. Maybe he’s a replicant! I would investigate, but I’m retired.

    Seriously, Miami seems to be falling apart in front of us.

    the only drama in this series is if AD might actually win FMVP over Bron...the impact of a 4th ring on his legacy will be diminished if he doesn’t win FMVP in the process

    imagine if a fully healthy Rockets squad had met the Cavs in the 2018 finals...it would’ve been a 5 game series max

    sigh

    I'd like to see Dwight sing "Redemption Song" when he has his ring and put it on social media. If he could play the solo guitar along with it, then that would be awesome. :)

    I envision a repeat of Shaq struggling to give Wade his FMVP trophy. Didn't watch, but basic stats say that Davis has an early lead.

    I’ve seen enough for tonight...will probably just glance at the box score from time to time for game 2, and if the Heat lose, I won’t watch the rest of the series

    I wonder how the NBA will conduct the following season. The bubble worked out very well.

    The Heat have got to start chucking 3s now.

    I'd like to see the Lakers rest all of their starters for the entire 4th quarter.
