I'm really looking forward to this.

I'm pulling for the Blazers to get in that play in game. The new Skinny Melo is looking like young Melo in that 15 jersey playing SF. Love watching Damian Lillard ball. 

Anyone else got a team they're rooting for to win and/or fail in these upcoming NBA PLAYOFFS?

Much respect to the Nets...they had me on the edge of my seat tonight. Levert is a great one in the making. They got some good players who can straight up shoot. Toronto is going to have their hands full playing these Brooklyn Nets. 

As for Damian Lillard, he is without a doubt my MVP. He's putting a good Blazers team on his back and taking them to the next level. They're as much a threat in the West as anyone. Lakers gonna get eliminated in the first round. Book it.

Porzingis needs to be smarter and not let his emotions cost his team like that.

This is what he is.  He’s a mentally weak loser.  Marcus Morris got into him and Luka’s heads he played really well against them when the Knicks beat the Mavericks twice this year

#1 excuse for Lakers fans after Blazers advance will be there's no homecourt advantage without fans.

Don’t worry Silver will figure out a way to get the Lakers Giannis or Booker next year

I'm assuming you're a Magic fan. That Nikola is a beast. He reminds me a tad of Pau Gasol from his early days in Memphis before getting traded to the Lakers. I don't think the Bucks go down 0-2 today, but with no fans/homecourt there is a lot better chance of Magic happening.

NBA is the only league I have 2 teams.  Knicks and Magic. Moved form NY to Orlando and sad there for the inaugural season, etc.  

The Bucks I’m sure will won but it was fun to watch the upset game 1.

I'm a Knicks fan too. I started following the Blazers games when they signed Carmelo Anthony due to the Syracuse Orange connection. I just think they have a terrific team right now and I really like their coach Terry Stotts - once an assistant with George Karl. I think the Lakers/Blazers game tonight is going to be a good one. If you got the time watch the game.

Blazers stunk it up tonight. Don't get me wrong I give credit to the Lakers for stepping up and winning a must win game. Personally I've never seen the Blazers shoot that bad, and they had good looks. The "other guys" for the Lakers stepped up and Anthony Davis brought his A game. As for Dame's digit, he'll be fine. It's just a finger dislocation on his non-shooting hand . At the end of the game I was shocked at a stat espn threw on the bottom of the screen that read: "Lakers first playoff win since May 18, 2012. That's 3,016 days." Wow!

 Mavs had a shot at pushing the Clippers to 7, but with Luka injured they're done in 5. I cannot see Luka being effective the rest of this series after a high ankle sprain last night.

Luka’s done this season and has no business trying to come back.  This ankle has been an issue for him the entire year.  Serious leg injuries can end young pgs just look at Derrick Rose

Celtics and Raptors are advancing to the 2nd rd today as they put the 76ers and the Nets out their misery. 

Macs have no chance without Luka. This series is over in 5. 

I believe the Nuggets will even the series with the Jazz tonight. Nuggets will win in 7 like last year vs Spurs in the 1st round of the 2019 playoffs.
