Annoying as hell that they tell us the first game AFTER the tickets go on sale. Whose dumb idea was that?

I coulda bought tickets to home game 2 knowing it was likely on the weekend if I'd have known that.

I think we make it to at least the Western Conference Finals. I really don't see LAC or OKC taking us out.

first world problem: wanting to know the time of game 1, and the dates for the rest of the series...

If Kawhi is "hurt" that improves my outlook considerably. That guy is a problem.

OKC hasn't really concerned me.

We obviously need both Gafford and Lively healthy to make a deep run.

Kawhi isn't hurt. That's a ruse you don't fall for.

They're being very quiet on Kawhi...him and Lively's health are fairly important to this series. I honestly can't get a good read on this version of the Clips.

One thing is for certain, Luka will get his. I also think Kyrie should be able to put pressure on their defense to prevent them from selling out on Luka.

It's about to be Lob City alright...Gafford and PJ about to feast, hopefully Lively, too. DJJ will have a couple of big dunks, as well.

in the past, we had supporting guys go off, im expecting westbrook to turn on his defense, and maybe normal powell/terrence mann are good for one game each offensively.

its hard like saclare said to get a read on this team. it feels pretty even if all are healthy. i hope lively can go, part of me thinks kawhi will give it a go, but i dont think he'll be fully healthy.

A fair concern is the fact that Lue out-coached Rick by a good margin in both series.

I can't see Kidd fairing much better although he does have a better roster than Rick did.

Grant Afseth is the best guy covering the Mavs right now. And it's not close.

I personally credit him with making kyrie feel comfortable in dallas. along with others of course but he always gives him great questions to pull insight from kyrie

Ty Lue says Kawhi is participating in a quarter of practice, and the Clippers will ramp him up with the hope of playing in Game 1 Sunday.

We still dont have defenders for Kawhi and PG, especially KLs mid game. But we are definitely set up better than we have been overall and at least have rim protection.

An hour after Mavs Practice was supposed to end they?re still going.

At least they?re not taking the series too Lightly

Wow, I guess it is kidna serious. But even a hobbled Leonard is a nightmare to deal with.

Best news I've heard since Mavs escaped the play-in.

Mavs don't have a lot of playoff experience, but we don't have any old people either. Hope that youth can be an advantage. They will have to grow up fast.

I think PJ is going to be a much better option on him. We have played them tight in the playoffs with Maxi guarding him the majority of the minutes.

PJ is our best bet at slowing down Kawhi.
