AD misses the game winning 3, he's having a stinker. That was a wide open look

Poor Suns.

Trailing all game Bledsoe gives them a 2 pt lead with 1.1 seconds to go and then Portland tie it up with a drawn up play out of the timeout. It was just so inevitable.

Bledsoe with a step back three buzzer beater over Lillard after they blew a 6 pt OT lead. Suns finally get a win under their belt.

I was watching the World Series so will have to catch the replay.

And it means bugger all but it's good to see OKC with a strong start to the season.

EDIT: Saw it on Instagram. The steal and dunk? Pretty timely.

I haven't seen any of the game, but I like the look of that Devon Booker kid. He looks like he'll be an all star level player in a few years.

This is not fun to watch...

Kids against All Stars. Kids on the second night of a road B2B.

Man...

I've never wanted a team to lose as much as I do these Warriors. LeBron, please beat these smug plums.

If the Warriors play the Clippers in a Western Conference final, would you prefer the Clippers to win?

Yes.

And you know how much I love the Clippers! :lol:

KD left the Thunder high and dry. This was a roster built around him. It's a big rebuild ahead now...

Hopefully the Spurs can best them - but that is a big ask...

The Cavs are every chance of course.

Simmon's HBO show axed already.

I didn't particularly enjoy it but feel sorry for him, that's a killer. He had spread himself too thin so focussing on the pods and writing will be for the best.

Kerr, the dumb fudge, was piling up the score last night when his starters could have been resting.

Back-to-backs are tough... unlike this Warriors side - they are soft as fudge. If they played the Cavs or Spurs in a series now they'd get creamed.

And Klay has turned into a total scrub! He's been horrific this season.

Hammy, MRI tomorrow

He reckons he is fine and will play this weekend (televised on Sat against the Cavs)

John Wall isn't playing in any back-to-backs until further notice so they need all hands on deck (or at least more performances like today's from Otto Porter :thumbup: )

I am really enjoying this season so far, a pleasant surprise.

Hope it comes together for the clips in the post-season, so much fun to watch.

:lol: Wizards one of a select few I just can't watch.

Lakers, Nets, Wolves all watchable this year, it's brilliant.

A few teams I'm struggling for a read on. Have no feel for the Spurs' ceilng, Pau was such an awful signing for them, as I could have told them he would be.
