    Great game though! You see... I think, even though (my) Celtics won, the Sixers would have been better placed to beat the Cavs. Though, ironically, if Cavs lose the finals, LeBron'll be going to the Sixers anyway (I predict). It's going to be an interesting Eastern final, but in the great scheme of things I wish there was more competition - if it ends up being Cavs vs GSW then that's pretty much what everybody predicted going into the season. What is undoubtedly true is that we've got to witness BOS & PHIL showing what their teams are going to be capable of. Especially when you factor in Irving & Haywood being out for these playoffs. Gutted not to see LeBron vs Irving though :-(

    So GSW won one game by a decent distance - why is everyone claiming the series is theirs? It's one game of seven! It's far from over. KD will probably take Finals MVP at this rate if they win the Championship though.

    I imagine Warriors will go through in 5 games now. Can't see Rockets winning either of game 3 or 4 in Oakland and would expect GSW to take either game 2 or 5. Hopefully it's the Celtics they end up playing though.

    Shows what I know ^^^

    Cracking last couple of games. Warriors killed themselves with turnovers tonight and Quinn Cook missed a huge chance at the end.

    Rooting for the Warriors but not sure they can come back from this. Tough ask. If Houston do take make the Finals, I hope Boston make it through and win the whole thing.

    Another finals appearance for LeBron. Celtics blowing a huge chance with Cavs not even shooting that well. Rozierís shooting has been dreadful.

    James lay up there to make it 84 was unbelievable

    I definitely didnít call that before the Playoffs given their regular season performances. Hope the Warriors get through to spank them. Iím still a bit salty Indiana didnít get the calls in the first round.

    Cavs - GSW! Fourth year in a row - that's pretty crazy.

    Yep, that's what I would assume. Toughest test for them was last night and the Rocket's completely bricked it. I'm pretty sure I wouldn't miss 27 3 point shots in a row.

    Curry has to be the most fun player to watch in the league when he's on form. Much prefer his dribbling and insanely deep shots than LeBron's power (not to discount LeBron's skill, he's unreal I just find Steph so much more aesthetically pleasing).

    Agreed on Curry.. apart from those stupid jigs he does. CP3 told him. :)

    I saw a video the other day calling Curry one of the most influential players from the NBA ever and it's really hard to argue with that. He's fundamentally changed the game. A beautiful 3 will always trump a dunk for me.

    As for his shimmy and CP3 - well we saw what happened to CP3 when he did the shimmy - hamstring couldn't cope! :p

    The guy in charge of 2K said Curry basically made it impossible for them to accurately depict him in the game, as it would just be game breaking.

    Haha, was my exact thought as well. Looked such a nasty twist on the replay. Real pity since Klay seems like a nice humble dude.

    My kid woke me up at about 3/4 so I was awake to follow the game on text commentary. Saw Warriors were up by 6 early in the 4th and thought ďprobably keep trading now and GSW will winĒ, so went back to sleep. Woke up again a minute or two later to find them down by 4! Thought it was game over at that point but stunning ending proved me wrong. Score line flatters them. Very fortunate in several respects. Be good to see how Cleveland bounce back from this though. LBJ should move to GSW. That would be a great troll move :).

    Not watched the whole thing yet but you've got to feel for Lebron.

    Watched the highlights, never seen a game before lol. Good watch. No idea what's happening, but good watch. Curry is ridiculous.

    My favourite JR Smith meme so far.
