    i'm sorry, but i'm watching this utah/clips game, and the state of the league bothers me. the clips throw a junk zone at utah, and they give up an 8-0 run before having to call a timeout. they didn't once run one of their playmakers to the center of the zone. just passed around the edge until someone shot over the top like a jv team. cool way to lose a lead in a must-win playoff game, fellas.

    Can you imagine if it ends up being a Jazz vs Hawks Finals? It will get lower ratings than a WNBA game.

    they're just killing gobert. for all the accolades, dude is nearly unplayable as you advance in the playoffs. the clippers whole offensive strategy is to get him moving the wrong way and just capitalize over and over. defensively, they're ignoring him entirely.

    without conley, the jazz don't have the ability to just match small and beat them at their own game.

    Jazz suck. Gobert sucks. How is this guy DPOY 3x? Simply Bc he’s tall right?

    so do we want suns or clippers to make nba finals? Ugh…sickening

    Rudy Yogurt is softer than wet, one ply s*** wipers. Utah and Suns are the two weakest 1 and 2 seeds i have ever seen.

    2021 is the year of the Injuries. Whomever makes it to the end without and injury, will win it all. OR, the least injured team will win. Maybe.

    Every Jazz loss is a win for basketball . Do they think they are going to fall under the floor if they get inside the 3pt line ?

    Gobert looked absolutely trash out there. Jazz are about to blow the best shot they are going to get at a title run.

    All these west teams are GARBAGE. Our healthy squad would demolish anyone except the Nets. That would be an epic, 6-7 games series with us winning.

    right? it was embarrassing. never trust utah and milwaukee. both teams in their current iterations have just failed in sad ways every postseason.

    i can't believe the clippers or nets are going to win a title even after losing a star (or two) each!



    and what's philly doing?!!

    Biggest choke job of a coach in the NBA. Wherever he goes, he finds a way...

    It was wild to watch. So many supposed great players and teams completely failing to live up to the moment. I've never liked Utah but definitely thought they would pull this out with Kawhi gone.

    These playoffs are ultimately why I never feel sorry for certain teams specifically small market ones. They like to complain about not being able to compete with the larger markets but time and time again when the moment comes and they've got their chance to get a title they fall flat.

    If Philly loses to the Hawks its time to just go ahead and break up the team.

    I think Gobert inability to punish the opponent small lineup on the offensive end is worse for Utah than his defensive limitations on the perimeter

    i mean, they're both really bad.

    how many dpoy awards are we going to give to a guy who's a repeated defensive liability in the playoffs, though? are the voters going to forget again?

    When does the stink start to stick to Doc Rivers? He had a ton of talent with the Clippers and couldn’t get out of the first round. Now the 76’s are choking. He can’t ride his one championship in Boston with 3 all stars forever.

    He had 4 future hall of famers on the floor and then they added Thibs to the bench (took their D to middle of the pack to beat in the league). I think any the awful coaches we've had the past 20 years--MDA, Brown, Scott, or Luke would've won with that team. Right place right time that nearly rivals Darko being the first from the 03 draft to get a ring.
