Fell asleep with Denver up huge in the 3rd. What a kick in the balls that they blew that game

I actually liked this particular Knicks team and how they managed to keep pushing on despite having so many injuries. But man it sure was fun watching everyone at ESPN have a meltdown when they realized they weren’t going to get their NY vs Boston conference final. And that it came on the heels of ESPN not getting a NY vs Boston NHL conference final either was the icing on the cake.

Yeah, if they weren't wearing Knicks jerseys I'd probably root for them.  But for the reasons you sited and all the celebrity "superfans", I cannot.

Plus they play in NY so screw them.  Glad they lost.

Pacers really just blew this game with a complete lack of composure down the stretch.

According to ESPN the Pacers had a 97.4% win probability with 10 seconds left in regulation. They were set to steal one and gave it away. Not gonna pull an upset that way.

Wolves drop a heartbreaker at home to go down 2-0 to Dallas. Call me crazy, and I'm not saying Minnesota will ultimately win, but I still think they are going to make this a tight series. Having just won three games in Denver they are no strangers to doing work on the road.

 

Add: Why Gobert was out guarding Luka 1-on-1 at the 3-pt line at the end will go down as one of life's great mysteries.

With their defense, they have the opportunity.  Hope they do, because I'm not a Kyrie fan, and for as talented as he is, I dislike watching Luka.

The Pacers gave another one away. oof.

 

But at least they had the most interesting inbounds play for a last second heave I think I've ever seen. Almost looked like they were playing football.

Guess I'm crazy. Stick a fork in the Wolves.

So because the conference finals ended so quickly we literally have to wait an entire week before the Finals begin. I get why the NBA schedules the Finals for specific dates well ahead of time, but it doesn't seem beneficial to be invisible for a week like this. It's not like the NFL where they manage to hold your attention for two weeks leading up to the Super Bowl.

The effort the Wolves put out in an elimination game last night was embarrassing.
