    Hawks tie it up 2-2. After that first half it did not look good

    And not once during that game did the MIL coach think "hey, maybe we should double that guy and make a hobbled James Harden beat us"

    Injuries suck but missing games due to Covid protocols is even worse. What a way to manipulate the odds and the game and series itself.

    Yeah even if you are vaccinated, NBA still requires cautionary quarantine, but not as long as a nonvaccinated individual as long as the person vaccinated does not have symptoms. Quarantine for vaccinated in entertainment will probably end soon as more evidence comes in regarding transmission rate for tested positive vaccinated individuals, probably next season I will see the end to that if the reports of positive vaccinated individuals keep showing no transmission. So far no reports of any spreading for anyone fully vaccinated anywhere who tests positive for Pfizer and Moderna. Paul should defiantly be ready by the first game of the next series if the NBA lets him. Right now they do not have a timeline of when exactly he will play.

    For Kawhi, looks like the Clippers are doomed unless another player steps up and plays at the same exact level as Kawhi. The coach is not that great and is not playing Cousins like he should be, which when cousins played he played only 6 minutes 2 games and got around 10 points both games. If the coach lets him play more, he will get more points. Morris is playing good right now so hopefully he continues. The coach did not let Cousins play the last 2 games. I think he is a better player than Zubac. Speaking of sportsbook, looks like a lot of people are going to go for the Jazz. Also Clippers has struggled big time in Utah and only has been able to win at home. Also Utah I think all season has only lost 6 games at home.

    2021 NBA Playoffs: Clippers vs. Jazz odds, line, picks, Game 5 predictions from model on 100-66 roll (msn.com) 2 hours ago article so its recent...Jazz as seven-point home favorites, while the over-under for total points scored is 220.5

    Jazz should win tonight , they are a good home team , don't forget they have played without Conley . IMO they win tonight and we shall see , if Kawhi can come back ??? I always thought Utah should win series , with Mitchell healthy.

    He is right though. He was saying all off season that it was too short and people were gonna get hurt without the normal rest between the end of last season and this one. Not to mentioned a condensed schedule this season so that they can try and and get NEXT season started on time. So there will be two short off seasons, as far as I know.

    Watching James Harden flop on every shot is infuriating. What's worse is that the NBA refs still call 90% of them as a foul on the defense, even when there is no one within 2-3 ft of Harden when he falls down.

    Anybody that doesn't like Giannis is a straight up asshole.

    I’ve watched Giannis more these playoffs than I ever have before. I HATE the Nets and KD (now that he left the Warriors). Giannis is NO KD, but then who is?

    I thought the Nets defended Giannis well collapsing in the paint, yet Giannis still had close to 40 pt. games. I wish he’d get his FT shit together and get off the 3 pt. line. His game seems better suited to regular season than the playoffs. Seems like a great teammate and a positive “face of the franchise.”

    I was probably happier to see the Nets lose than the Bucks win, but I LOVED those TV shots of all the fans in Milwaukee going nuts throughout the game. You folks have some great sports fans in Wisconsin… the Bucks May well just win it all. I’m 63 now and was in 5th or 6th grade when the Bucks last won the title. You’ve waited long enough.
