8-)

Admittedly this is as far as they are likely to go, but second overall is a pretty decent performance.


Oooh...maybe I was doing the Raptors a disservice. :lol:

Durant is practicing with the team today and Kerr says he's more optimistic about his return than he had been earlier in the week. GS sure needs him if they are going to dig themselves out of this hole.

Ouch. That injury changes everything.

Indeed. I think GS can win at home Thursday but if they do I wouldn't bet money on Sunday's game. It's been an exciting series regardless and I've enjoyed watching the games. I hope KD hasn't hurt his chances of playing next year.

I don't know. I feel the finals are still open but it will take a lot for the Warriors to come back from 3-1. My worry for them was always that they lacked depth and were an injury away from being in real trouble.
Also there was always so much speculation about Durant's future and it's not going away with his injury now.

Indeed. Although the Warriors came close but it was gonna be tough after Klay went down in the third. It will be interesting to see what Golden State will look like next season: KD possibly gone and Klay out for anything between 6 months to a year, you have to think they need to reload.

Still, lovely to see after St. Louis wins their first Stanley Cup, the Raptors break their duck as well. Great series!

It was not to be for GS. Too many injuries and Toronto was too tough. It was an exciting series down to the last seconds. I watched the second half with no sound as I was at a pub quiz. I guess I'll be attending my drum session on Sunday instead of watching game 7.

The Lakers got their man. Anthony Davis is traded by the Pelicans for Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram, Josh Hart and three first round picks....
Rather strange Caesar's Sports Book has now installed LA as the favorites for the 2020-title. Personally I would have loved for a Davis-Zion attack on the season but not to be....
