There's a big difference between informed, educated opinions (with some partisan passion thrown in) and hot takes.

    That's my hot take...
    I both resent and dispute the characterization, Crazy. Stephen A Smith is a guy I can't stand to listen to, and I'm sure as heck not the guy that walks into a bar and blathers on about my team winning, wanna make a bet, and you are all wimps. I'm the guy that would probably get thrown out of the bar because I'd belt the idiot that came in saying that stuff. So please don't compare me to Stephen A. Smith. It's beyond insulting and just not true.

    Nice to see Kennard get a chance to contribute. I hope at some time in the not so distant future he gets a chance to expand on the playmaking skills he was beginning to show. As a non-star player, Kennard's success will largely depend on fit with the team is on.
    And after a nice contribution (29 minutes) Tuesday night, Luke barely gets on the court last night (10 minutes; hitting his only shot attempt) - both against the Jazz so same match-ups. What's that all about?

    Maybe the Clips wanted more defense on the court.

    And even with that, Mitchell scorched them again. I find it interesting that the Clips MO was supposed to be this lock-down defense, especially on the wings with all-world defenders PG, Beverly and Leonard, and yet now for the second series in a row they can't stop the opposing team's guard. Something is definitely amiss in Clipper world.

    Kawhi can opt out this summer if he wants... maybe he will go to Brooklyn too
    I don't know what you are doing right now, but if you aren't listening to the DBR Podcast, you're doing it wrong.

    When is Lebron free? Can't he go too?

    That would be a hoot, wouldn't it. Talk about heads exploding everywhere. Kyrie could tell LeBron he could be the fifth option at crunch time.

    Anyone placing any fun wagers on the playoffs? I got lucky last night after taking Brooklyn at +3.5, won by a half point. I couldnít make a decision on the Atlanta-Philly game line (Sixers minus 1.5), so I took a fun prop bet: Trae Young to make over 2.5 three point attempts. I think he gets hot at home and hits several in a row. FYI, I put in $100 for the playoffs and thatís my limit, usually $10-$20 bets. If Iím up by the Finals, I take a larger wager and try to boost my profit. Anyone got any action going, Iíd love to hear thoughts...

    Huh?

    Even though Trae Young had 28 points, the Sixers shut him down as far as momentum and big plays. You could see his frustration.
    If your referring to close calls on Embiid, he's expert at drawing contact from the defenders and then making his free throws.
    Simmons was aggressive and the Hawks had no answer for him. The Sixers are averaging 55% from the field in the series.
    Curry had 12 on 5-10 shooting. Danny Green went out in the 1Q with a calf injury but the Philly bench contributed 48 points.

    Yea putting Simmons on Young has changed the series.

    Super impressed with the Suns. Favorites in the West, even over the Jazz or Clippers? I wouldnít bet against them at this point.

    If only they had a Dukie playing for them...

    That was my takeaway as well- extremely impressive performance by Simmons on defense.

    Luke needs to follow JJ Redick around like Daniel-san until he agrees to train him. In spurts heís as deadly an offensive weapon as there is in the league. His defense is basically non-existent, though. Heís going to have to transform his game like JJ did to stay in the league long term. Thereís a lot more to his offensive abilities than JJís so he could have an even better career. Right now thereís not much room on the court for an undersized, ball-dominate 2 who takes 3-4 possessions to get going and canít guard anyone.

    I think LA knows this and loosens his leash when they need offense but not otherwise.
