Blazers could still pull this out, but I kind of feel bad for them. They played a near perfect game for about 2 and a half quarters, then the Warriors got hot for, like, 2 or 3 minutes and their lead disappeared.

 

The margin for error is so small in this series for the them to have a chance.

The refs didn't want to give the Blazers the same calls down the stretch. Lillard got pushed into Curry when he was taking the 3 but they called the foul on Lillard.

GS is so good we sometimes forget that they're also the most playoff tested team in the league now.

 

We've seen them win with overwhelming talent, then two of their all stars went down. We saw them win and prove their core is still better then maybe any other team in the league. What we saw tonight was them eeking out a win against a young and hungry team by making winning plays at the right time.

Can Portland play 48 better minutes than those? Maybe, but GS player poorly for most of the game, until they didn’t. No lead is safe against a team that can score on 10-12 straight possession at any time.

If McCollum makes a few of those great looks he had at the end of the game, the Blazers win.  The Blazers role players did their job, but their stars weren't good enough.

 

But yeah, it is frightening how a half of good basketball can be wiped out by a 2-3 minute Warriors blitz.

Boy, the NBA has really backslid on not calling fouls when a shooter contorts themselves into a pretzel to force contact on some poor defender that went for a ball fake, but is 3 goddamn feet away from them.

 

We all like it when "our" team gets that call, but the league as a whole is better off when they are consistently no calling, or even calling offensive fouls on that.

That first quarter I had pretty much written off the Raptors from even getting close, but WOW that end of the 3rd and all that 4th quarter. They found their winning groove and Leonard hit that special gear of his

So 538 has the Raptors as the favorites for the championship now.

 

Vegas says "LOL, fuck your analytics..."

 

 

I give them about a 10% chance of winning 2. Most likely 4-1 for GS.
