    Re: 2018-19 NBA Basketball Season Thread

    I kind of feel like this is a mild epidemic these days:

    http://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/2...ey-beal-travel

    That one is ridiculously egregious (the official league response is completely insane and basically condoned self-passing, which would basically mean nothing is a travel).

    in general though I feel like the popularity of the Eurostep (which, when done right, is almost a travel) has basically added a free step to all drives to the basket.

    The only traveling calls I ever see are 1) shuffling feet too quickly after receiving a pass or 2) post guy making too many frantic pivots

    One second round matchup is set and it's in the East.

    The East's top seed Milwaukee Bucks and the fourth seed Boston Celtics will clash in Round 2 after the Bucks and Celtics swept the Detroit Pistons and Indiana Pacers in four-game sweeps.

    Don't forget the Toronto Maple Leafs' so-called "Little Brother" and AHL affiliate, the Toronto Marlies.

    Re: 2018-19 NBA Basketball Season Thread

    You don't see an NBA playoff game lasted at least three overtimes often.

    The Portland Trail Blazers go up 2-1 in their Best-of-Seven Western Conference Semifinals series against the Denver Nuggets after a thrilling 140-137 victory in four overtimes.

    It is the second fourth overtime playoff NBA history since the 1953 Eastern Division Semifinal between the Boston Celtics and the then Syracuse Nationals.

    For the first time since 2001, the Milwaukee Bucks are in the Eastern Conference Finals.

    The Bucks eliminate the Boston Celtics in five games.

    Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Bucks will await the winner of the Toronto Raptors-Philadelphia 76ers series.

    Thank you Milwaukee for ending the threat of all 4 Boston teams winning this year.

    I never heard of him until this year, but that Giannis Antetokounmpo is pretty good.

    If you havenít heard of The Greek Freak before now you donít follow basketball at all. He should be MVP over the Beard this year but I suspect writers will go with Hardens iso ball step back travel over Antetokounmpo and his inside dominance.

    Yeah, I don't care a lick about the NBA. I didn't even know the Bucks were good until the playoffs started. I heard on a podcast about how great Giannis is and I assumed he was a doofy white guy.

    Via Adrian Wojnarowski twitter
    Kevin Durant suffered a mild strain in his right calf and is out for the rest of the series against the Houston Rockets. KD is expected to be re-evaluated next week.
