    Sixers decision won't be to sit him for game 5 but to sit him for the series and beyond. That tear isn't getting better with one days rest and will probably get worse but they'll need him for the Nets series. NY Times carried a story on the front page with this headline.

    Kevin Durant and (possibly) the greatest basketball team of all time.

    With Cuban and Balmer sitting courtside, late 4th, Game 5, Timmy Jr and KP drain huge 3s to beat LAC.

    Holy Cow!

    But wait... the comeback... could it be?

    What a series.

    Can Luka get any better? Timmy hitting big shots for them and has been better than KP.

    Can you imagine how scary Dallas would be if they replaced KP with a max salary big man who actually plays like a max salary big man (Anthony Davis, Towns, etc)?

    They don't even double KP or put the best defender on him, his production should be off the charts with the attention Luka draws. If DAL doesn't get to the second round Cuban may try to trade KP this off season.

    Lakers are losing 45 to 18 in the 2nd quarter. Yikes.

    Suns close out Lakers. Lebron plays 40+ minutes with a near triple double. After AD went out early with injury, Lakers showed how little they had on the roster.

    What happens with Lebron and the Lakers will be huge storyline this off-season.

    LBJ isn't going anywhere. He's at an age where playing with his son will be a bigger goal than winning another ring. His son turned 16 last year so realistically he may enter the league in 2023. Hope he's good enough, I haven't heard the hype about him that you heard about LBJ coming out of high school but I would love to see him on the court guarding his dad in an NBA game.

    Alright, here we go, Lillard with the cryptic tweet.

    Please donít let this guy end up somewhere else in the East like Miami.

Dame was disappointed in the post game, maybe he goes AD and asks out of POR. I'd give up JR for sure for a shot at Dame.

    Said it after his postgame in that disappointing loss in which he scored 50. He sounded disappointed, they're not going to give him away, probably ask for JR RJ and picks.

    I donít see how that helps us or him. Unless heís bringing 2 stars with him, weíre not winning anything if we lose all that to get him.

    Clippers force a game 7. Kawhi lethal with 45 points on 25 shots. Hit clutch shot after clutch shot in the 4th.

    First time away team has ever won first 6 games in an NBA playoff series.

    KP with 7 points and 5 boards in 31 minutes. Cuban going to be under a lot of pressure to move that 30+ million dollar a year contract if Mavs lose game 7 on Sunday.

    KP with 3 years and over 100 million left on his contract after this season (including his player option).

    Cuban is a businessman, always looking for whether a player has been a good return on investment. You want a guy you're paying max money for to be more than the role player he's been in the playoffs. I think game 7 is going to be huge for KPs future, he needs to turn in an AS performance and help the Mavs advance, 7 pts and 5 RBS isn't going to cut it.

    Lillard wants Kidd as head coach but Kidd says heís not interested. Awkward.

    Philly seems less equipped to handle Atlanta than we were. Atlanta has opened up a 20 point 1st half lead.
