[Post Game Thread] The Spurs (57-16) eviscerate the Cleveland Cavaliers (47-26) in San Antonio, 103-74. Kawhi Leonard leads the Spurs with 25 points, 6 rebounds, 6 assists, 3 steals, and 1 blocknbaboxscoregenerator.com by /u/Obi-Wan_Ginobili
Damn, it really sucks to see the Cavs struggle this bad. I think they just need to regroup, get some guys healthy, review the playbook, and SHOVE IT UP THEIR BUTT.
Lmao the cavs only scored 4 points more than booker did vs the Celtics
Basketball is fun -stoned faced Kawhi
The Boston Celtics are now the number one team in the East
At 48-26 they are now half a game ahead of the Cavaliers following their loss to the Spurs tonight. Although it might not matter in the end if they have home court it's interesting none the less.
typing for character limit
1st place in East
Most likely shot at number one pick
Have cap space for a max guy in offseason
People need to put RESPECK on Danny Ainge's name
you are welcome, celtics
Just over two weeks ago, the Atlanta Hawks were 37-29, and 5th in the East. They've lost 7 straight games and are now 37-36, still 5th in the East.
(We're not as bad as we've looked during this losing streak though, as we're actually like 0-10 without Millsap this year, including all the games in this streak. Other starters like Bazemore and Sefolosha have also missed games due to injury.)
Don't let this distract you from the fact that Leo should be our backup point guard.
We started our 7 game win streak as 6th in the East, we ended it at 6th in the East, then immediately after we started our 6 game loss streak as 6th in the East, and ended our 6 game loss streak as 6th in the East. Our whole alternating win loss streak we were 6th in the East, until the last game of that streak to now where we are technically 7th because we don't own any tiebreakers, but we still are "tied" for 5th-7th seed. Average that out and it's 6th seed.
Who tf is Leo?
The Boston Celtics are now tied with the Cleveland Cavaliers for the number 1 seed in the Eastern Conference
Celtics have played 2 more games, but as of tonight they are tied for the lead in the East
Link? I haven't heard LeBron say anything.
I'm a simple man, I see "CELTICS 1ST SEED" in the same sentence, I upvote
CELTICS 1ST SEED Hitler did nothing wrong
Maybe /sub/torontoraptors was right? Maybe we are a fake 2 seed.
Henry Cavill (SuperMan) missed the call about him getting the Job as Superman, because he was playing WoW
Duncan is definitely a tank right
Why can't my friends be nba players who want to game until early in the morning?
And his character name was definitely TDuncan
Imagine being the guy in the cable company call center that had to respond to Kobe calling to get an NBA package.
You would totally think someone was screwing with you.
I made a few calls after that
Kobe using /sub/nbastreams confirmed
Michael B. Jordan, the actor, said growing up it was hard having the same name as a famous basketball player because he'd call in for a pizza and they would "yeah who is this for?". He'd reply "Michael Jordan" and they would just laugh and hang up after.
Not even KOBE FUCKING BRYANT could watch the NBA TV games on League Pass.
C'mon /u/nba, it's not "national" coverage. Put your own games on your own app instead of requiring a hugely expensive cable package for them. I can handle ABC, ESPN and TNT, but host your games on your app. It's ludicrous not to.
This guy is a very legit player
And Sacramento won - this wasn't just empty calories, it kept them in the game and they ended up getting a win.
Shitting on the Clippers
Just Steph Buddy things
22-3 run in the last 4 minutes
PopCare? You sign when you are young and you become a great player, sign when you are a veteran, and your career is revived.
Pop is aware of the politics ban on /sub/nba. Now trying to sneak in politics when answering basketball related questions. Checkmate mods.
Nobody knew that resting players could be so complicated.
Kings go on a 22-3 run to come back and beat the Clippers
A 22-3 run in the last 3 minutes of the game.
Buddy Hield came CLUTCH to make a crazy comeback against the Clippers
I still have no idea how the kings won that game
Vlade wins fools
Chokers gonna choke.
Damn we doubted Vivek but he knew all along
Devin Booker Finishes with 70 Points, 2nd Most Ever in a Loss in NBA History
Most ever was David Thompson with 73 against Detroit in '78. Dude was out of his mind.
Edit: Finished 21-40 FG, 24-26 FT, 4-11 from 3 with 8 boards and 6 assists. Just incredible.
Edit 2: Wilt apparently had 78, 72 and 70 in losses, making Booker tied for 4th all time, my bad. Thanks to u/22every-day for pointing that out.
TD Garden was cheering for him LOUD! Hopefully Crowder doesn't mind
Shoulda missed the last FT for the sex number.
and only 4 3s. what the fuck
they were fouling the celtics at the end just so they could keep giving him looks
