Hey now, this is all a part of LeBron's plan....he's just scouting Boston out some more. Can't wait to hear what Shannon Sharpe has to say.

Should the Celtics win the series, I think it'll become suddenly possible that LeBron leaves the Cavs a second time. Nonetheless, Cleveland is not quite out of the series yet. There have been teams who have come back down two games to none. The Cavs are capable of doing so. Hopefully Boston can win Game 3 to take a 3-0 lead in the series, as no one has recovered from that hole in the history of the NBA.

Golden State can easily get lax in game two, fall behind by 20 points in first quarter and then give up thinking they can turn it back on at home.

In my eyes game two is more important to Golden State than Houston. This series is far from over for now.
They cannot relax against Houston, regardless of how much they're leading by. The Rockets have enough firepower to get back into a game in a flash.

Utah is not nearly as good as Golden State.

The series will only be far from over should Golden State fail to win Game 2. The Warriors win Game 2, it's over.

He's clearly been the best player for the Warriors in the playoffs this year. If he's the second best, then who's the first?

I'm worried now...

And I'm starting to think that if Boston somehow wins the whole thing, Stevens is the greatest coach ever, period...

The Celtics will get a lot of respect should they even reach the Finals. When they get Irving and Hayward back, they'll be downright scary.

That being said, I honestly think there's no way Boston could beat Golden State. Not without Kyrie to counter everything Steph does.

first off, I don't have a favorite NBA team, I simply love basketball. Here are my observations:

Rockets are horrific against the Warriors. I don't care if Houston wins tonight. They are done already. I agree with Chuck, Warriors win the series 3-0.

Cavs are in trouble. Down 2-0 and they are fighting each other, not good.

Celtics - Warriors series? I think the Celtics won the season series? I know, I know the regular and playoffs are 2 separate seasons.

Funny I thought the Celtics won that series so I guess the Bucks "didn't come back"

No team has ever come back against the Celtics down 0-2 as in never ever

This isn't the Cavs of 2-3 years ago the Celtics are younger,faster and more talented across the board they are making the Cavs look old and tired....which they are.

Celtics just took Lebron's best shot and still won by double digits

The basketball media is easily the worst in sports. If the Cavs lose this series, the stories and those stupid shows where people yell at each other will claim that LeBron cannot do it by himself, he needs help, he got worn down, etc. But if the Cavs win, they will fall over themselves talking about how it is all because of LeBron.

James is an amazing player and easily one of the best ever, but the way the media handles him is just absurd sometimes.
