More Hardwood + Round Holes = Lots of Scoring in Basketball 2K19

I am surprised the Nets are out in the 2nd round, but I guess that shows how the most important ability for a team is availability. It's a pretty bizarre batch of teams left.

Has Kyrie always been that skinny? I feel like he used to be less Billy Halleck

Weight works differently on a flat Earth. ;)

I'm happy to see the Suns take game 1. If they play every other day, I can't see CP3 back any sooner than game 5 or 6. Hopefully Devin Booker & Co. can hold the fort until then.

E: the Bucks just don't have it. Too soft.

E2: Congrats to the Bucks but I still think they don't have it. 

Like a third of the time, it looks like they have it and could go the distance; one of the other thirds they look like they're an 8th seed that only just barely qualified off of a play-in game; the last third they don't even look like a professional basketball team. I don't know exactly what I'm watching, but it surely does not inspire confidence.

Never believe that anti-Semites are completely unaware of the absurdity of their replies. They know that their remarks are frivolous, open to challenge. But they are amusing themselves, for it is their adversary who is obliged to use words responsibly, since he believes in words. They even like to play with discourse for, by giving ridiculous reasons, they discredit the seriousness of their interlocutors. They delight in acting in bad faith, since they seek not to persuade by sound argument but to intimidate and disconcert. If you press them too closely, they will abruptly fall silent, loftily indicating by some phrase that the time for argument is past.

I don't know what's wrong with me but I found myself cheering for the Clips more than once tonight.

Honestly, I wouldn't be too upset with any of the four remaining teams winning. The Clippers are the most "constructed"/non-homegrown team, but they're not exactly a superteam; of the four teams, the Bucks have been the most recent to win it already, which was 50 years ago in 1971. It's a good field of teams left.

Have the Milwaukee Police filed a missing persons report on Khris Middleton? My man disappeared in the second half last night. Where was the dude that rescued the Bucks against the Nets?

Atlanta last won it when they weren't in Atlanta but St. Louis in '58.  Clippers and Suns never won it but they also both started as teams a year or three before the time the Bucks won the championship...

Preference is the home team of course, but I'd also be cool with any of the remaining teams.

Okay, Bucks, now look at me - look deep into my eyes, directly into my soul, and take heed of my words: please keep playing like a team that isn't completely pants. Thank you. This may surprise you, but you don't have to play like...well, like you don't how to play basketball.

It's absolutely wild how different of a team the Bucks look from game to game depending on whether they have their heads screwed-on right on that particular day.

Suns won a hard fought defensive struggle to take a 3-1 lead. Deandre Ayton came up big with a monstrous 22 rebound game.

Methinks the East champion is going to have trouble overcoming this Suns team...

I think the Bucks are the most talented team remaining (especially since I don't see Kawhi returning this postseason) but their performances are all over the place; they look unbeatable one night and super garbage the next. The Suns are playing the most consistently good basketball.

I'd rather be the team that's consistently good for 6 or 7 games than the team that's great for three, MAYBE FOUR games. Particularly at this level of the playoffs, where if you're an inconsistent team, you're more likely to be bad than good since you're playing against other top tier teams...

This Bucks team can do anything. They could sweep the Suns given some luck and playing consistently; they could also lose the next three games to the Hawks, :shrugz:.

Won the game, but still played kind of dumb, but I guess not as dumb as some of the games in the Brooklyn series. Middleton saved them that game after having decided to just not miss at all in the 4th quarter.

Um...now Trae Young is out for game 4 against the Bucks after having apparently suffered a "deep bone bruise" in his right foot from stepping on that ref's foot two nights ago. If the Bucks end up winning the NBA Super Bowl (whatever the heck it's actually called), it's going to be one of the flukiest wins thanks to literally every other team having suffered horrible injuries on their way there.
