Gasol so much better than Baynes

Celts could have traded for him
He's like if Baynes had guard skills on offence and stayed out of foul trouble

Gasol also getting paid 4x as much as Baynes.
Any odd typos are because I suck at typing on an iPhone :D

I'd like to see Toronto put Ibaka back in the starting lineup for this series. I think they need Ibaka's quickness as a team defender off of Milwaukee's perimeter orientated big men. Marc Gasol is too slow on help & recovery and was causing a lot of open shots for Milwaukee's shooters last night.

Best part about this round is both series have games every other day.

I think they'll have no choice but to do that.

Yes, Nate Duncan also said this, and I agree. Gasol was huge against Embiid, maybe less so this series.

Collins made back to back defensive lapses which Warriors capitalized.

Great adjustment by Kerr to start Looney in the 3rd.  Their blitzing of Lillard and McCollum in the pick and roll has destroyed Portland's offense.  Sucks to see though.  I'm sick of Golden State.  Come on Blazers!

Ibaka needs to step up if they play him more, I thought he was worse than Gasol in game 1. Just a lot of mistakes and passive play.

Jordan Bell has really responded to the call these last three games.

The heart of this Blazers team is just incredible.

McCollum's offense down the stretch not getting it done.  How is the ball not in Lillard's hands at this point of the game?

He's getting trapped every time he touches the ball.
