The Sixers -if healthy - scare the crap out of the Raptors, Cavs and Celtics. They'll be duking it out next year for the lead in the East. And for years to come.

I certainly havenít noticed the story line being that Kevin Love is a stud over the last 3 years. Bosh was also criticized A LOT. Based on his Miami play, a lot of people were saying Bosh was a role player and not even in the discussion as a top 20 player (essentially downplaying the idea of the Heat being stacked).

Quinn Cook had a career night with 30 points, but he was the only bright spot for the Warriors tonight. Kevin Durant got ejected right before the end of the first half over a no-call. There should've been a foul call. Sometimes I question the ability of refs to make calls when there is CLEARLY contact.

Nonetheless, I've accepted that I can't do anything about the refs system. On to the next game.

That no-call was definitely ridiculous, and they seem to be a common theme with the Warriors' stars, but Durant did call him a b---h-a-- m----------r, so I'm not surprised he got tossed. Cook is looking great, but I'm done with Nick Young.

Games like last night's Bucks/Warriors games is proof that the NBA regular season outside of a couple of dates is completely meaningless.

The people who criticized Bosh--like the people who are criticizing Love--were morons.

The officials have been pretty bad this year. Of course, KD could show some desire to play regular season games instead of stopping during play and getting himself ejected.

What I want to know is what that official was saying to Draymond later on during a Free Throw. Dray repeatedly told the official not to talk to him that way, and had an extended conversation with Kerr when he was next subbed out.

Of course he got tossed. Nick Young is still going to win a playoff game with a ridiculous hot streak. Then he will lose the next one going 1/12 with 5 turnovers in 10 minutes.

Cook is looking critical for Round 1 and maybe Round 2. Without Curry, the Warriors need a Point who can shoot, pass, and handle.

The Warriors are toast this post season!

I'm rooting for Houston all the way.

Houston vs Boston would be an extremely high quality series.
I always find Golden State vs Cleveland to be very messy, often streaky.
I mean Cleveland always look messy, and Golden State were high quality last year but very streaky in 2015 and 2016 Finals when Curry played far below his best.
Houston and Boston are both very precise and well-coached.

That is exactly what I thought when GS signed him last year.
