They destroyed Phoenix on the glass 52-28. An extra 13 field goal attempts on better efficiency is insurmountable.

I'm obviously hoping we make it through but the Wolves look like the best shot at taking out Denver.

Booker and KD are getting theirs. Beal has to do a little more. The Wolves size is a huge advantage. Wolves is 6.

Happy for my boy Ant-man.

He and Jalen Green give me hope for USA basketball in the future.

Maxey is a blur. He's getting to the cup at will. Brunson's having a bad shooting game.

I'd be happy for 80% AD. He's been thru a lot too carrying the Lakers this far.

To be honest, I know everyone considers Denver our toughest opponents, but I'm not convinced that Minnesota would (or will ) be easier to beat.

Minnesota looks legitimate. Wouldn’t have been an easy first round win for us.

He seems like a big market guy. Need to get him in purple and gold.

For the record, the suns were favored to win the series against the wolves before today. They were 3-0 against the wolves this season, didn’t work so well for them

Who would have thought a team of Durant/Booker/Beal would end up as fodder?

If Bynum had never had knee problems, how good would he have been? Would he have been comparable to Embiid?

Better than Embiid. He had real skills, never relied on getting to the FT line.

Embiid is the beneficiary of an era that rewards flopping, flailing and foul-baiting. I'm no fan of his antics, but it's important to note he is merely taking advantage of the modern, broken rules, much in the same way guys like SGA and AR are.

I remember when Mike Brown benched Bynum for shooting a 3 when it wasn't the popular thing to do for bigs. The irony is that it was against the Curry-led warriors, the very same team that would go on to popularize the trend and gimmick in the following years.
