    Cavs are pussies. There’s a chink that the Celtics armor, why did they get blown out 1 game by that pussy Cavs team? Knicks are a different level

    I still like a Knicks - Mavs final

    I can definitely see that if OG comes back. OKC is young and inexperienced, they were destined to get knocked out early. Denver might be gone in game 7. Mavs are hot right now, they can beat the Nuggets or T-wolves.

    I've seen it happen a ton in the NBA playoffs. Once a team gets behind a certain point players start sitting with injuries. Any sport, most players are banged up to some degree once playoffs come around.

    The Knicks are so banged up. Game 7 will be fun to watch.

    I know this doesn't belong here but i searched the other forums I couldn't see a Knicks thread.

    I wanted to see what the fans were saying about the Knicks DISGUSTING no show first half against the Pacers at home.

    In game 7.

    :(

    Somehow they've gotten the deficit back to single digits.

    Defense just hasn't been good today.

    Everything looks so hard for Brunson now. He has to work so hard for every shot looks like.

    Pacers have him figured out?

    I hope the Knicks can come back.

    New York loves this Knicks team.

    They had us believing.

    To be fair. Pacers shot unbelievably. Best FG pct team during regular season. They got hot back half of this series, the line up with Turner and Pascal on floor destroyed the Knicks.

    Especially with OG out and Hart injury.

    MAYBE Thibs learned something about short rotations. The Knicks left it all on the court today. Unfortunately, they didn't have enough bodies to get the victory. Oh well, on to baseball..

    Even smart Coaches make bad decisions. Or self-serving ones if Thibs was only thinking about getting rehired or a better contract.

    Maybe he was told he had to show as many wins as possible for him to keep his job?

    Nope. This is how Thibs playes. This is his head coaching style for over a decade.

    I thought the Knicks were legit in December. I suppose you can say more minutes more chance for injury. But I don't fully blame the rotation for injuries.

    Epic game 7 collapse by the Nuggets at home. Biggest game 7 comeback and biggest blown halftime lead in game 7 history.

    The NBA will crown a new champion this year. Im personally hoping the Mavericks win it all but I would take the Timberwolves as well.

    I don’t think Thibs is the problem. Knicks were shit without him

    im disappointed but its not the rotation. What made the Knicks good was that when other teams were resting and relaxing, they were balls out all the time.

    Live by the sword, die by the sword.... it was a fun run, and the heart of this team made me like basketball again, but it was shame it ended the way it did....

    It would be poetic for the Knicks to get stronger and overachieve into the finals next year just to get crushed by the new dynasty the Spurs are building.

    The Knicks were toast due to all the injuries. In terms of winning a championship losing Randall was probably going to do them in sooner or later regardless.

    Then you add the others dropping like flies and the reality is that it was a monstrous tribute to this team that they even got to a game 7 in the second round. Never saw a team deal with SOOOOOOOOOOO many injuries.

    At the end they had ONE starter left.

    Nuff said - I was really proud of those guys.
