That was an amazing comeback by the Blazers and a ridiculous shot by Lillard. He was so fun to watch in this whole series and especially last night.

I also have to admit that I loved how much the Blazers rubbed it in and made it about Westbrook's disrespectful comments. They were talking trash at the podium and even wearing shirts mocking Westbrook. Russell Westbrook is my least favorite NBA player so I got a huge kick out of that.

The best part wan't that shot, it was Westbrook missing 20 shots on a night when his teammates were on fire. The rest of the team shot a combined 65%, and Russel "My only friend on the court is the ball" Westbrook just kept shooting and missing.

Blazer v Nuggets is going to be a show with all the shooters on both of those teams.

Russell Westbrook has single handedly made me reevaluate the triple double.

Watching that last play I was like "PG better press up cuz Dame gonna pull from....GAME OVER!!!"

So good, so easy to root for. Probably my favorite player in the league.

I understand more why oldtimers don't respect Wilt and Oscar as much as the number seem to merit.

Montrezl Harrell has more heart than the entire Suns organization.

Y'all know I'm a Warriors fan, but I am really enjoying seeing the Clippers hustle and outwork them and give them a series. I love Harrell and love Lou Williams. I don't like watching Beverley push and shove and claw and flop and talk endless trash, but oh well. The series has been fun and surprisingly testy. I think the Ws end it in 6 but nobody would have thought the Clips would take them this far. It's a good recruiting pitch for Kawhi to come to LAC this offseason.

He’s a FA target I’ve been in favor of for us. 11/19 from 3 in the series as well.

Good take.

I've seen some say that the Clippers plan was to almost let Durant have a big night, because it's more damaging if Curry does instead. I thought this was an interesting idea and kind of the out of the box thinking it might take to take down the Warriors.

Are you saying he's a target for the Suns at center or do you see him as a possibility at pf?

PF...he brings shooting next to Ayton and is a solid rebounder.

At this point, I'm not dismissing anything, as you could almost accidentally luck into making this team better without trying next year.

Haha, true.

I did just check though, and Green does not fare well in some advanced metrics. RPM for one is not too fond of him. Especially defensively.

I don't want to take away from how well the Clippers have been playing as individuals, but I think Doc Rivers deserves a ton of credit. I don't think a lot of these guys would be playing at this level under a lesser coach.
