    Brick and Love the best two players in this series even if they havent played like it.

    Everyone wrote off Boston after the injuries, everyone!

    Why? Because you got 5 mediocre players on the court who so far have looked better than they are.

    Why? A lot to do with coaching but to me they seem to want it more. Hustling instead of hanging back to cry to officials.

    One old guy leading a bunch of young guys with very little playoff experience....?

    Cavs in 7.

    4 of the Top 6 Players in Boston's Rotation are 1st Year, 2nd Year, 3rd Year, and 4th Year Players.

    Tatum, Brown, Rozier, and Smart.

    Who Won more Games during the Season ?

    Or is that a Bad Indicator to use ?

    Considering Cle was 3 different teams in one season, I don't think it is a bad indicator, just not entirely accurate.

    Why did the Market price Cle as Odds-on for the series if Bos is so much better? You want to know why? If they priced Bos as chalk, they would have had massive liabilities; that's why. I'm talking Going Out of Business Liabilties; the entities that offered such pricing would have got absolutely pounded. If they started this series again with what we know now, Cle would still be priced as favorites.

    Stop Resulting.
    Men are born for games. Nothing else... the worth or merit of a game is not inherent in the game itself but rather in the value of that which is put at hazard. Games of chance require a wager to have meaning at all. Games of sport involve the pride of victory & the humiliation of defeat; which are themselves sufficient stake... But trial of chance or worth, all games aspire to the condition of war, for here, that which is wagered swallows up game, player, all.

    Having to watch what you do and say about trying to acquire Future Free Agents, because of the N.B.A. Tampering Rules, there have been a few small Local Media Leaks, about what Danny Ainge's Ultimate Game Plan is for the Celtics.

    And that is to try to eventually acquire Anthony Davis from New Orleans.
    He's a Free Agent after next season.
    But Danny could approach New Orleans about a Trade, where New Orleans would then Not lose him for Nothing.

    When the Eastern Conference got down to the Final Four, Boston was a Longshot against Cleveland, Toronto, and Philly.

    Only because Irving and Haywood were in Street Clothes.

    Otherwise, The Favorite.

    OK. So what are you disagreeing with me about?

    Probably not a better indicator of a coaching mismatch than the line discrepancy for game 3. Don't remember seeing this before for an NBA game.

    Cle -6.5
    Cle 1st 1/2 - 5.5

    The market loves Stevens, and he didn't get 1 vote for Coach of the Year.

    he didn't get any votes from the other jealous coaches, but Stevens is a finalist for COY along with Dwane Casey (LOL) and Quin Snyder

    Bill Walsh said i was a genius last year when i won it all. This year we're 5-5, im doing everything exactly the same and im a dumbass.

    Im not doubting Stevens is a good coach, his record supports that, but i believe there are other factors into why Celtics are playing so well.

    Maybe im wrong but doubt he will dominate the NBA the next 3 decades. Agree with Ray in that coaches might be hardest to quantify.

    That's an 0-2 coming home for game 3 bias not a coaching bias though I do agree that this is a coaching mismatch.

    David vs. Goliath..... And David flung a stone and the Philistine fell

    I gave Brad "Sampson" Stevens a buzz cut in another thread earlier so I think the Cavs are good regardless of whether or not the stone is on time and on target.

    I have no idea how you could say such things
