2016 NBA Playoffs

They don't start until the 2nd round. All the first round series are either mismatches or irrelevant IMO.

Agree, they should change it back to a 5 game series, but they won't because of money.

Here's a great site for NBA analytics. Want to know how the Celtics perform with Avery Bradley on the court, and with him not playing?

http://www.basketball-reference.com/...1/on-off/2016/

The Celtics offensive efficiency is a 109.8 with Bradley on the court, but falls to 101.0 with him off the court. Defensively, however, the opponent is actually stronger (105.3) with him playing than not playing (99.8).

In the 6 games Bradley missed this past season, all 6 went under the total.

Agree this is a great site for fans and especially gamblers. Another one I like which I know some serious gamblers use, seems to slice and dice the stats even more finely.

Is there anything more ridiculous than hearing Rockets fans shouting "MVP" while James "I play zero defense" Harden shoots free throws? Are they all brain dead down there?

That was an ugly game for one that was close and went down to the wire, not good basketball at all.

I figured as much with the exclamation point.

Nothing better than seeing the Blues fans on their feet throughout OT, stressing out big time!

Solid win tonight by the Thunder, and the Orioles!

Taking Dallas +9. This series has been a zig zag series, and think Dallas will bring an improved defensive effort today.

The 3 games Kevin Love has played are the best 3 consecutive games he's played as a Cav. If he can play like that in the finals the Cavs have a chance.

He won't be playing the Pistons in the Finals.
