    I hate the Celtics but they’re far and away the champ favorites with their defense and current injury situation elsewhere.

    He should have probably played 82 games like everyone he’s facing instead of being an idiot

    Kyrie is kind of like this, though. What Boston is doing to Durant is one of the most shocking things I've ever seen in a series. He's considered the best player in the league by many, and he's got nothing for them right now.

    They’re running so many people at KD that something has to be open for Kyrie….:crickets:

    idk about that . Brooklyn’s ‘cook them’ iso offense plays into their hands . Other teams that actually move and cut may have more team success & field better team defense than BK

    GM KD making a great choice hitching his remaining prime to Kyrie and a bunch of role players that don’t play defense.

    Breen is trying harder than the Nets to keep them in this game. Appreciate the effort, but the Nets quit 5 minutes ago, Mike.

    the media chorus will be even worse but i don't think KD tonight is anything close to as bad as KD in Boston. it was clear the adjustment was facilitating around him rather than forcing shots through doubles/swarming pressure and i thought he did that well enough. there were some bad turnovers but i thought he played within the framework of the offense. in game 2, it was those turnovers plus a ton of terrible forced shots.

    now, you could argue the adjustments of having KD distribute is bad (and they probably are because Nash sucks) but i don't think KD played shockingly bad. i was legit shocked with his performance in Boston.

    Especially weird cuz last year with less help KD was balling out every game and nearly beat the eventual champs by himself. Just seems like this year after the Kyrie vax fiasco and Harden trade he just decided it wasn’t the year

    All this talk about how no one wanted to play Brooklyn first round and here Boston is the only team with a chance to sweep in the first round in the East

    I’ll give you credit you said you’d rather play the Nets and I thought you were crazy but who knew you had a direct line to the bookies who have KD’s family tied up in a basement somewhere

    I like how they were talking about Griffin being way past his prime at 33, completely ignoring his injuries, when he’s 6 months younger than Durant

    Kyrie went nuts in game one and since then he has nearly as many fouls (8) as made field goals (10-30). Hadn't made a three since game one either.

    KD is 19-52 thru the three game and has 17 turnovers

    Kyrie didn't make a 3 pointer in games 2 and 3 and is averaging 13 points on 33% shooting. People will focus on KD but Kyrie has been abysmal too

    At this point they don't have a choice unless they just want to throw the white flag and quit like everyone not named Patty Mills did at the end of game 3

    I agree. Play him. Even if you lose oh well, it’s not on him. But you’ve gotta give it a shot and see if anything changes. Doubtful but it’s the last game. Why the fuck not?

    If he can play good defense, it could play some big dividends. But short of some major injury to Boston, the Nets still aren't going to win 4 games unless Simmons is all of a sudden some major scoring weapon outside the paint that is capable of playing 35+ minutes right away.
