Tell it to the league, tough guy.

Nice rebuttal! Tatum got hit in the back of the head and kept on playing.

Kevin Love is soft, and I'm not talking about the concussion, though I question his heart and want to play through it. There is a list of in-game incidents in which you can watch how he reacts to things, and how his play can deflate if it's physical. He's a good player, he looked better in Minnesota, but he's a soft player...

And I've been a defender of Love in the past. Even watching him this series though, he's an extremely soft basketball player...

Glass Love.

Cavs play better without Love so as long as the Cavs make shots:

What does this mean? Well, it should mean that the Cavaliers are better equipped to switch at all five positions defensively, something they’ve done a much better job at doing. It also allows them to rotate more quickly when they show Al Horford a hard double, something he’s struggled to deal with in spots as a passer.

It also means that their spacing is going to be a disaster if George Hill, J.R. Smith, and probably LeBron James aren’t hitting their shots. The problem? Nobody on the Cavaliers has shot well from three in Boston in this series.

He's still the same player we saw in Minnesota. He just doesn't get as many opportunities to pad stats like he did with the Wolves. For a big man, he's never been an efficient scorer, which is why Minnesota sucked so bad even with those monster lines he used to post.

The refs swallowed their whistles when the GSW fouled in the 2nd half. James Hardin who I believe led the league in FT attempts got zero attempts in the 2nd half. But hey, Silver, TNT, and ESPN want that 7th game. $$$$$$$$$$$$. Fix was in, gents.
Harden leads the league in FTs because he's a notorious flopper. He's perfected the illusion of being fouled in many different ways, but his strategy relies on the refs buying into it, which sometimes they do not:

Meh. They're all floppers these days. Harden and his antics. Durant and his punching the defender with the ball, then throwing it 50 feet in the completely wrong direction. Of course you could be James, get punched in the jaw every night, and no foul.

Game 7's just tend to be different. They tend to be low scoring and more physical. Cleveland vs. Oakland 2016 and Los Angeles vs. Boston 2010 come to mind.

Well, LeBron obviously came to play, but someone else on the Cavs better start picking up the slack if they hope to win tonite!
