stumping intensifies

imo nuggets should win, but miami winning would make their run one of the very greatest of all time (especially relative to their abysmal talent level, honestly makes zero sense that they made it past the first round, never mind to the finals)

The Nugs smoked the Lakers.

I'll say this for the Lakers, they competed in all 4 games, they tried. They just didn't have the legs down the stretch of each game and the Nugs are flat out better.Β 

On the other hand, the Celtics looked like they straight up quit in game 3. Will they show up for game 4?

The Celtics finally showed up for the conference finals. I'd say better late than never, but their chances of winning 4 in a row are rather slim.

Holy ****! The finish to game 6 was crazy. That was as buzzer beater as buzzer beater gets. Dust off your stumping shoes @Bartimaeus, you've got some serious stumping to do to prevent the first 0-3 comeback in NBA history... Ugh, I just realized, we're going to get bombarded with comparisons to the 2004 Sawx for the next couple days. *sigh* Note to self: Avoid sports media like the plague for a few days.

what happened is that i clearly made an out loud assumption that miami would win after game 3 here, and now the universe is personally punishing me for it

I'm predicting Nugs in 5. I don't think Miami has the firepower to beat Denver, plus they're worn down from a grueling series while the Nugs will be rested. I don't think they can handle Jokic, that dude is on some next level ****.

Jokic drops a casual 32-21-10 in game 3. No big deal, just a garden variety 32-21-10. Standard stuff.

It was a great run by the Heat, but they either had to play perfectly or hope that Denver suddenly stopped playing like how they've been playing this entire post-season, and so Denver gets its first championship. Jokic will undoubtedly (and deservedly) be heralded as the best player in the NBA, I think. Thank god that I don't watch or listen to any sports media, because I'm sure the whole lot of them will be just as obnoxious as they always are.

The Nugs rolled up the Heat, sparked 'em up, and smoked 'em.

So in a big upset the USA lost to Lithuania, which makes us losing to Italy actually lucky. We get the easier side of the bracket. Still have to beat Lithuania which is easier said than done.

The unequivocal star of the U.S. team, ANT aka Anthony Edwards, said "we're not really worried about those guys" with regards to Lithuania and Montenegro leading up to the game, :yes:.

I doubt it will happen twice. The US is still the favorite by far. The biggest surprise for me was Spain, who knew Canada had it in them.

Won against Lithuania convincingly, although the last quarter was atrocious and the game was low scoring. All of which has me concerned. The whole time we were leading by 20 I had the feeling it was by 2, I guess one you get burned on milk, you will blow even on yogurt.

On to the finals. Again our second half is not good, but I think that it's not impossible to beat the US team (if they win against Germany). We have a good bench, we just need to play with more confidence and concentration in the second half.

Ah thanks to Serbia for beating Canada, media can now stop bombarding me with news about the team.

Germany showed up, but that last bad pass cost you the game. Well at least the "EU" can handle a B-C US team.

Such a disappointment of a game, the worst way to lose... That 3/4 lost us the game and it was completely on us that we were scared to shoot. Sadly we were missing the Dobric who got injured at the start of the game.
