    ok back to the game… why in the world are they playing norman powell? its cramping their offense completely

    What game are you watching? Powell has played great and is the primary reason Toronto is winning.

    In fairness, haven’t past generations been criticizing travel calls as long as anyone can remember?? My dad has literally been hammering that point for 40 years..

    yes… the nba gets more egregious every year… its sorta a rite of passage that when you get in your late 30s / early 40s you just get annoyed watching the nba because of the rigged refereeing and random crap…

    its ok I still love the nba… just think they’ve allowed this eurostep thing to become a total mockery… I mean its just a gross thing to try to justify IMO… because it takes defense out of the sport

    I don’t disagree with you- in face I have started to come around on this whole thing as I get older.. At some level we will all become Clint Eastwood telling these young NBA punks to get off our lawn

    they’re saying Kawhi is hurt but playing through it

    doing a lot more than Green or Giannis

    well in all fairness I missed the 1st quarter where it seems like he must have been pretty good.. hes been awful in the 2nd half when ive been really watching the game

    Danny green has to be the worst non 7 foot ballhandler in the league… id rather have bismayck biyombo put the ball on the floor than danny green

    He pulled something in the first half.

    I think the NBA has gotten worse in most respects when you compare it to the game in the ’80s and ’90s

    more lying, more tanking, softer players

  • mtdurham

    almost seems like Toronto is trying to lose running their offense thru norman powelll (WHILE DEFENDED BY GIANNIS) for most of the 2nd half…

    this is pure insanity

  • yisman

    I don’t know how you airball a free throw

    c’mon now

    my personal gripe this post season has been the interactions between players and officials. As fans, we all dislike officials to some degree but when teams and players are looking for calls before the shot is taken… I am just hating that players have to mean-mug an official just one second after they slap a wrist as if to say “you cant call that”.. Sorry, but that is my “get off my lawn” issue right now- makes me nostalgic for the ‘no blood- no foul’ 80’s

    Ugh. I dont agree with that. Try watching those games from the 90s and they are dreadful. The players were a lot less skilled back then because it was all about size/strength. The rule changes in 2001 made it a skill game. It just took teams about a decade to figure that out.

  • mtdurham

    that lowry foul out killed the raps chances man…they’ve got nothing on offense without him.

    yeah but that’s been going on for a LONG time… Draymond green is terrible… but he isn’t anymore annoying that tim Duncan or Rasheed Wallace were about that type of stuff

    id like to see a rule instituted where if you complain about the right call its a technical… but if the ref makes a bad call you’re allowed to berate the crap out of him for 5 seconds and he’s not allowed to call a technical. that be fair and less annoying…. nothing worse than a ref blowing a call then calling a technical to double down on his error and its ridiculous to see the complaining on correct calls

  • mtdurham

    I got $100 on tor -2.5…. pelase just close this out jeez

  • mtdurham

    another awful call against Toronto… brutal refs for a home game

  • mtdurham

    they just let middleton get away with a lane violation on a FT unreal…. I mean I get not wanting to end the game on a lane violation but maybe don’t commit a lane violation oni the game winning free throw?

    refs have really kept the bucks in it all night.

  • rocketman828

    I’m so sick of the refs this entire postseason!

  • jcotdl

    ruh roh

  • mtdurham

    OMG! middleton commits an offensive foul with the most obvious HOOK ever and no call.. this is laughable

      RG Overall Ranking

    Do the 2H and 4Q showdown slates end at the end of regulation, or is OT included?

  • rocketman828

    Of course its OT and my 2 guys out of my 6 fouled out Lowry and Powell

  • mtdurham

    Yes included in all 2nd half bets

  • jcotdl

    the league has just been notified that ABC has five fouls; he has been issued a ‘double-0’ status and a license to kill any Raptor in or near the painted area without repercussions

  • mtdurham

    I know kawhi is tired but he’s been taking nothing but bad shots all 2nd half.

  • jcotdl

    feels like a danny green moment

    edit: or kawhi will short a contested elbow fadeaway lol
