billy.pilgrim, you missed your calling. ;)

Report: Rockets have research that shows Warriors get favorable officiating
I don't watch pro., so no comment, but it's obvious that you don't watch Alabama's close football games and didn't see the Auburn vs NCS basketball game.

:D Easy Tiger (get it?), I'm lauding your ability to rate officiating and passion for it, and saying you could have had a career doing the research.

Maybe coulda gotten some zebras fired now and then.
:---P
Can't say that you wouldn't have enjoyed that.

"NCS"? Who's that? I figured you'd still be pissed off about Virginia.

Denver lead series 1-0, oh well

Toronto (#2) > Philadelphia (#3) and then win the Eastern Conference
Philadelphia 94, Toronto 89
Ut-oh, lost the homecourt edge
Series Tied 1-1
I'm 2-3 in the Semis, my 1st time in the hole this year. :(

    Warriors rally to beat Rockets after Kevin Durant injury

    ... In a performance reminiscent of 2015 and 2016 before Durant joined them, Curry took over, Thompson came up big in support and Draymond Green threw his body all over the court as Golden State beat the Rockets 104-99 in Game 5 Wednesday.

    The Warriors take a 3-2 series lead into Houston for Game 6 Friday. Teams with home-court advantage and a 3-2 lead in a best-of-seven series entering a road Game 6 have won Game 6 51% of the time and the series 91% of the time.

    This has been an especially tight series with games decided by four, six, five, four and now five points. The first five games of a series have each been decided by six or fewer points only three times previously....

    Durant’s injury could give the Rockets an edge. The Warriors are still determining whether he’ll even travel to Houston....
    I'm 12-8 games, 1-0 series in the Semis.

    Report: Kevin Durant out rest of Warriors-Rockets series

    Ut-oh. Or not, great team either way.

    Toronto and Denver, both on the road, could end their series tonight, or not.

    Good game. Golden State wins series 4-2 :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:
    Steph Curry scoreless in the 1st half, but game was tied at halftime. Can't count on him to stay bad, finishes with 33 in the game, 23 in the 4th!
    Has knocked Houston out 4 of the last 5 years.
    Will have 2 days more rest than the Portland (#3) - Denver (#2) winner, Kevin Durant back?

    Not just a Toronto buzzer beater, but it bounced 4 or 5 times on the rim before dropping in! Wow.

    Portland (#3) is the de facto Cinderella team. Otherwise, two #1s and a #2. This ain't March Madness.

    I'm 16-9 games, 4-0 series in the Semis. :thumbup:

    I'm a total 40-17 games, 10-0 for series picks.

    Toronto had it, then collapsed in the 4th quarter. Gotta wonder if it was fatigue.
    Milwaukee 1-0. It's my least favorite of the 4 remaining, but I don't hate it. That's a bennie of winning every series, the unliked teams are gone.
