Doesn't look either series will go past 5 games. That means a long layoff before the Finals starts.

I think it's time we seriously consider the NBA doesn't want Toronto ever in the finals because it's in Canada and that's not good for America media

They want Milwaukee??

They got the Green Bay Packers, and Aaron Rodgers (the supposed GOAT conversation) to help sponsor for their league next to Giannis.

Too early to tell. Raptors are a very good home team so atleast they should win one if not both.. Same goes to the Blazers Warriors when the Blazers were up by a large margin in the 2nd half.. Atleast both series should go 6..

If both away teams win G3 though, it definitely would be curtains as no team in NBA history has come back from 3 games down.

I'll be a believer of Milwaukee if they win Game 3 in Toronto.

I think Toronto is closer to getting swept than winning both games.

Logic and facts say you are correct because the Bucks are currently up 2-0.

Good point. Every time I see that stat line, I always think of our 2012-13 Celtics which *almost* pulled off forcing a Game 7 against the Knicks. I really wish we could have been the first to come back and win a series like that.

the NBA and the broadcast partners think we are all idiots. They have these retired referees as broadcast experts to explain calls but have you noticed that they time it so that the studio expert does not commit to a call UNTIL after the review call as been made by the game officials.

That foul by Jerebko was a flagrant 2 and Steve Jarvi just hedged and hedged until the officials made their call, then he agreed with them. LOL !!!

I still think about the last few minutes of Game 6 sometimes. That near comeback was some of the most exciting basketball I've ever seen, I literally couldn't sit down for most of it
I'm bitter.

Draymond is in incredible shape.  He's expending tons of energy with these aggressive drives.

Pierce: "I called game."

Who would have thought that Myers Leonard will provide impact Blazers needed?
