NBA Playoffs 2019: End of Lebrongelion | OT | Cus Crisis (Space Jam 2 Now Hiring, Apply Inside!)

Lol some of the takes on here, jeez. Both teams played incredibly well, Raps started out strong but lots of mistakes along the way allowed the Bucks to get their footing. Particularly Green and Gasol need to step their game up. Lowry had a heck of a game. This is going to be a fun series.

So what are the chances the raps get swept after this? 50%? 75%?

I think they might steal one at home to push it to 5 but wouldn't be surprised in the least if this was the closest game in the entire series.
You guys are so ridiculous. Every fucking game you do this shit. It's game 1. You have been wrong every single time this post season.

There is so much series left to play. This game was close entire time. There is no reason to assume a conclusion at this point.

Just wait and see. Maybe the Raps win. Maybe they lose. The major thing is you obviously have 0 knowledge of how its going to turn out.
 
I mean you can have a fun series that ends in 4.

Danny's been a monster in the Finals before and Gasol has been in the playoffs forever and isn't typically shook. FVV might have congenital Raptors shookness though.
Danny Green ain't been shit in this entire playoff run, fam. And it's been a long time since he's been a relevant post-season player in general.

Just finished watching. wtf did i see.

That was like Shaun Livingston carrying the warriors with 30 points, 8 boards, 4 steals and 2 blocks where he is clearly the best player on the floor. Just not something you see every day.
 
Dude not again

It's going 6 minimum

Eh. Just what I'm observing. No one on the Bucks played particularly well except for Lopez hilariously, not even Giannis. They were clearly still rusty as shit from their break and they still pulled it out and won by 8 points. In that sense I wouldn't be surprised at all if they completely blow us out by 20 in the next few games. No one with a brain expects the Raps to win this series.

Honestly I'm oddly totally at peace right now. Never thought the Raps would beat Philly after that disastrous game 6 so this is all borrowed time in my opinion. Maybe I used up all my emotion in game 7 of the last round. Either way no matter how well or poorly they do in this series Kawhi is gone next season and the team is gonna fade into pre - 2013 irrelevance again. Either way this is gonna be the last year I follow the team. It feels very freeing in a way and I look forward to not giving a shit about the raps for probably the next several decades.

You should be, Bucks ain't shooting 39% from the field and 25% from three again in this series. Some how the Bucks still won. Nah this ain't going longer than 5 games.
Kawhi wasn't himself and Raps shot poorly outside of Lowry.

Lowry is to have another good game than Lopez having one himself.

Not worried because NBA Era takes usually the opposite of real life outcome.

this man understands.

If the anomalies we saw tonight correct themselves, Kyle goes back to a 15ppg contributor on poor % and just about every Buck other than Lopez plays significantly better...and the Bucks should win game 2 by about 17 points. I expect them to win all games going forward by at least 10 points. Better team, better players playing better basketball right now.
Kawhi wasn't himself
he had 30+ and shot well. The Raps got 30+ from their 2 best players while the Bucks' best players were only okay today. It didn't matter in the end.

Future games feel unlikely to be super close. But we'll see.
