    The Clippers actually have a chance to beat the Lakers. Not that I like them very much either, but **** Lebron. Nuggets would lose in 2, 3 games max.

    Does the league even want a all LA finals? 90% of LA are Lakers fans. If Denver makes it they will get more Denver fans.

    I think the conspiracy theories are too much. In general the game 7 in these playoffs have been very good. Wish every series went 7.

    It's like 2015 all over again. Clippers possibly losing a game 7 after being up 3-1. And the premature end of an all-LA conference finals is the icing on the cake.

    They are in the drivers' seat but they need major production from 4 players.

    KL, PG13, Lou and Trezl.

    I'm rooting for Bev, Trez and Lou to win a chip.

    They were good Rockets.

    This is what really pisses me off about the league.
    You got Stephen a Smith calling out kawhi Leonard, just similar to what happened when the grizzlies had the Oklahoma City thunder down 3-2 and The league came out with the mr unreliable b*******.
    they know that if they call out kawhi Leonard like he ain't doing nothing that is going to give him extra motivation.
    I just wish for once that it wouldn't work and that the nuggets take them out.

    I quit watching basketball after our loss, but I'm going to have to at least watch the 4th quarter of this game. I'd laugh my ass off if the dirty Clippers lost after being up 3-1. But, I know the NBA wants their LA teams Western Conference Finals, so my bet is on the refs to help ensure that happens.

    Raptors and Spurs fans will tune in for Kawhi (and probably Warriors fans since Kawhi beat them),
    Thunder and Pacers fans will tune in for PG
    and Lebron vs Kawhi is a big draw for casuals

    The Clippers will probably win handily, but if Denver wins I'll root them on further.

    The best sports show going, Speak for Yourself, made it a point to lay some of the blame on Doc. Turns out that his teams have blown 9 series leads. 4 of them with the Clippers. At least 3 3-1 leads that I remember. And the 2008 Celtics played 26 out of a maximum 28 games when they won their championship.

    A lot of the players share some blame, with Kawhi being the one who would shoulder the most, lose the most, because his reputation is that of a champion. Champions don't go out like this.

    lol. The Nuggets must be pretty bad if they can lose a 7 game series in 2 or 3 games.

    So you “quit watching basketball” for two whole days?

    Adam Silver and Lebron would conspire to have every single nuggets player booted from the bubble for a "violation." Somehow hordes of women would get through multiple security checkpoints without being stopped.

    No, I have no interest in any of the other games. I'll just watch the Clippers 4th quarter in hopes to see them lose after being up 3-1. If Clippers win I'm done. If Denver wins I'll only watch the last quarter of the last game against the Lakers if they have a chance of winning.

    The only other quarter I'll watch is for the Finals. I'll watch the last quarter of the possible Championship game only if the Lakers aren't ahead in the series, or if Denver is ahead and they are in it.

    I just don't want to watch the dirty Clippers or the pompous LeBron is all. I honestly don't care about watching games unless it's my team, the Rockets.

    I don't know refs, but one that allows physical play would be helpful to the Clippers.
