And it baffles me even more why anyone w/the personality of KD, Kyrie & Kahwi would even give playing in front of the NY media even half a thought. The irony is that those 3, apparently, want to leave what are probably the most functional organizations in the assoc., w/the exception of the Spurs. Meanwhile, the Lakers & Knicks are among the NBA's most dysfunctional. If I didn't know better, I'd say the media is reporting what they wish, not what they know. They'd rather report from NYC & LA instead of Milwaukee & Portland.

Bucks and Raptors get it on in 20 minutes. Toronto looked like they might get steamrolled after the first two in Milwaukee. Kudos to the Raptors for not folding like a house of cards and making this series interesting. I've no doubt Toronto could take down the Warriors, but Milwaukee could crush them and that's the matchup I'd like to see in the NBA finals. Golden State hasn't been a great team since 2017 with their decline on the defensive end and downgrade in the quality of the bench being major factors. Also, Curry is a sieve on defense.

Milwaukee is the best team in the NBA with the best player so they best get it done tonight in game 5 at home.

Kristaps threatened to go back to Europe if he wasn't traded?!?!
If this is true or just a red herring this is alarming for the Knicks organization. Why would you even want to leak this in the first place

Who can blame Porzingis for wanting to get away from James Dolan and his cabal of incompetents as soon as possible?

Didn't see that coming. Bravo, Raptors! It's yours for the taking. Kawhi has been sublime and Giannis not so much of late.

Diff 2nite? The benches. 3 Raptors off the bench scored 35 in 80 minutes. Bucks 5 off the pine scored 15 in 65 minutes. And 12 pts & 29 minutes came from George Hill.

Not until this season. Drafted by Cleveland and waived. Spurs signed him as an FA and that's where his career blossomed over the previous 8 years.

Green sees to be focusing his energies on D. He's a 40% shooter from behind the arc in 117 career playoff games. The shot will come and go, even with a top marksman, but defense is pure effort.

Danny Green's net rating is third best among all Raptors trailing only Kawhi and Kyle. There's a reason two of the best organizations in the NBA have employed him for the past 9 seasons.

https://stats.nba.com/team/161061276...T_RATING&dir=1

Edit: Green also lead all Raptors in net rating during the regular season.

It will be interesting to see if Porzingis can stay healthy and team up with Luka Doncic to bring some magic back to the Mavericks. The Knicks are hopeless until Dolan is gone.

Milwaukee has put themselves in a pickle with last night's loss at home, but even after 3 consecutive defeats I wouldn't be surprised if the NBA's best team snaps out of it and sends it to a game 7 back in Milwaukee. Giannis needs to find an extra gear and start knocking down his free throws. Those two tasks are well within the ability of the league's top talent.

In last year's NBA finals, the Warriors were matched up against the 14th best team in the NBA (as rated by SRS) and the 29th best defensive unit in the Cleveland Cavaliers. What a joke! Unfortunately for Golden State (rated 13th on defense), Milwaukee (1st) and Toronto (5th) don't suffer from that critical deficiency and have a real chance of exposing the Warriors continuing "greatness" as a fraud.

Don't get me wrong, when Golden State was a powerhouse they excelled on both ends of the court. Those days are over.

Milwaukee blows another big lead and gets stomped on in the 4th quarter. Toronto with a hard earned ticket to the Finals. I hope they kick the crap out of the Warriors.
