I agree, Warriors are done, especially with no Bogut.

Someone explain to me playoff matchups. I kind of talked about this in the last thread. Why doesn't the highest seeds play the lowest seed possible after the 1st round?

The NBA has never done that. The bracket is like the NCAA tournament. No re-seeding.

I always thought the NHL does it right with the re-seeding (or at least they used to do it right, they've bastardized their format now).

Clutchest are LeBron, Harden, Parker, and Conley. Least clutch are DeRozan, Wall, Aldridge, and Johnson.

DeRozan as soft as expected in his first playoff game. Raptors will have to rely on Lowry and Valanciunas to even keep these games close.

KC_Connection 04-19-2014 01:41 PM

The Nets somehow weren't called for a foul in the 4th quarter, but that can't be any surprise considering who their players are. And really, calls or not, Nets were the better team on the day and got the win they deserved. Raptors have to play much better than that.

Lowry was fine and Valanciunas played great for his first playoff game (17 and 18), but the rest were far too soft (as I expected they might be). They'll be in tough to pick up 2 games now in this series, especially as the refereeing won't get any better going forward.

Two terrible charge calls. Come on, refs

Fun game

I can't stand every NBA player whining about not getting a foul called when they drive to the hoop.
