Idk, it's hard to let cousins just walk away but at the same time they are playing better without him I think. And have been for a while imo. They started rough after his injury and went 1-5 then went 20-8 and have rolled through the blazers now.

Sure Mirotic is a better fit for Davis...hell, they can keep all three and create a kickass front court rotation where Mirotic plays around 20-24min a game the stretch four with Davis or Cousins at center.

But would Mirotic be happy with such a role? And then they still have that glaring hole at the wing...

People said from the start that Boogie and Brow would take away too much from each other and I guess they were right. Not really missing anything without Cousins.

Kinda unfortunate that they have to go against GSW in the second round. I think Houston is the much better matchup for them and they would have a shot there.

Jabari Parker finally becoming the X factor in their series. Boston looks to be in big touble if he keeps at it.

Bledsoe has been garbage this series. They might be better off playing Deladova at this point.

One of the cool things about playing in a small market. Love that he was just chillin' at a local restaurant without paparazzi or his "crew" around him. The fact that he didn't explode into some social media meltdown over it says a lot about his character.

See, you just can't be a traditionally sized center in today's NBA and NOT play defense. He just doesn't have a clue on that end. That's very strange considering who the coach is.

Game was close when Harden couldn't make a shot. Things changed after halftime.

Wolves shot selection is abysmal at best after the half as well. Combine that with missed ft's, no defense, and missing easy bunny shots close and you get a -18 half so far.

It's puzzling how someone with his skill set and athletic abilities can be so god awful. Sometimes he doesn't even try on defense... something you hear a little about with Ayton which is the only thing that scares me about him.

Well that and Harden scoring 22 points. I'm curious what Wiggins does well? I thought he was a good defender, but feel like he's gotten roasted all series.

He's just like KAT. Has the tools to be a great defender but is shit. KAT at least is great offensively though, Wiggins hasn't improved one bit imo during his 4 years.

This game should count as 2 losses for the Wolves honestly.

Houston just had a 50(!) point 3rd quarter. Think you can throw in the towel on this series.

OKC needs this game or Russ is going to average 45 PPG next season when he shoots the ball 50 times/game because nobody wants to play with him.

And Ayton is a top 3 prospect according to most. It's a weird disconnect

Which is why I don't get how lots of Mavs fans rate Bamba as low as they do. Bamba blocks shots without fouling which is almost unheard of.

I've luckily have had the time to watch almost every playoff game, and I think a defensive big and wing are as crucial as ever despite all of the talk that they no longer have a place in this league.

Bamba may be the definition of the kind of guy who you want a middle-first to get.

With high lottery, you go for Michael Jordans and LeBron Jameses-- ultimate offense guys, but Bamba may make a similar impact defensively.
