2017 Conference Finals: 1 Boston vs. 2 Cleveland

Postby Lamrock on Wed May 17, 2017 3:26 am

So much hype for this conference finals match-up that I could wait until the morning after to make a thread. :P

No upsets, even in the inconsequential series, as the Wizards were K.O.'d by the Celtics. Al Horford, 0-12 against LeBron's Cavs in his playoff career, will hope to avoid the sweep if nothing else... But the Cavs managed to sweep a 60 win Hawks team without Kevin Love, and for a couple games, Kyrie Irving. I think Cleveland goes into the finals 12-0. Sorry Isaiah.

I don't like the cavs but I think and hope they will wreck the warriors, assuming the warriors hire a hitman to take kawhi out of the picture.

Kinda odd to see #1 seed being treated as a huge underdog. Rightfully so though. Cavs in 5.

i'd love to see IT go bonkers on this cavs team. maybe the Celtics spread offense will make the Cavs play some real defense.

would Lue subject playoff lebron to guard IT?

Going 4-0 for the Cavs. Shouldn't be a difficult series for them. Some stretches of offense during the WSH-BOS series were a pain to watch.

They don't need to hire one. They already have Zaza on their payroll.

I can see the Celtics taking one game. But honestly I hope there aren't too many blowouts in this series.

What's the deal with crowder? He seems like he's the ideal guy to guard ljames but he got eaten up and spit out like he was demarre Carroll

Forgot about this forum's great poll choices come playoff time.

Lebron looks so comfortable out there. He is levels above anybody he is going against. He owns the game of basketball right now.

Didn't go to bed to watch the game (2.30 am) - after 1.5 quarters I'm sure that I do not have to watch it till the end :(

It's kinda amusing to see #1 seed getting raped by #2, not even close.

Despite there being record parity with conferences, clearly big gap exists in talent pool. Who is the second best player in East, Isaiah who struggled to get a starter role in West? Or is it Paul George who hasn't even made All NBA team? Perhaps Butler, DeRozan, or Lowry? LoL, kid me not. Look at Western conference now. Chris Paul is better Paul than George, always has been. Not to mention Leonard, KD, Curry, Westbrook, unibrow, Gobert.
