Hit the showers, boys. Kawhi and Lowry saved you three hundred times and the rest of you choked it right back each and every time. ****'s sakes.

Gasol just beyond useless. Can't rebound can't hit a shot from in close can't hit a 3. Not sure why Nurse didn't put Ibaka in.

This is definitely not the game of Lopez's life, he's been a multi-time All-Star. But Lowry was the only one who stepped up, Siakam has had a great year but he looks a bit weary now.

Coaching and settling guys down to not panic and turn it over is what lost them the game. I’ve not been a fan of the coaching this playoffs.

Missed opportunity this game. It was theirs for the taking. Super frustrating to watch that.

And is it that hard to draw a foul? I mean come on, Giannis gets anywhere near the rim and the refs are already starting to blow their whistle. Its ridiculous.

You can see their collapses coming a mile away when they're up more than 6 points, but instead of settling down they try to shoot their way out of trouble with predictable results.

Whoever predicted Bucks in 5 is likely right. I think they'll take one in Toronto and that's it. We have the top end talent to compete with them, but no support.

You're not advancing to the finals without competent support, not even close.

That Danny Green turnover was a killer along with Gasols trash 3 point attempt

I'm thinking it at least goes 6. Gasol needs to do something about his shot. There's no way he can continue to be so bad from 3. Green too. Defensively they played well. Rebounding and some key shots cost them.

And back to back misses by VanVleet on very makeable shots.

And Kawhi didn't really do anything that quarter either.

Aside from Lowry, the Raptors were 0 for 15 in the fourth. Thats brutal.

It's even worse than that. In the second half Kawhi and Lowry were 12/24, everyone else was 1/23. It's been a really shocking dropoff in the playoffs for the entire team save Kawhi, and reinforces that the East isn't really that good if one top 5 player can carry a team to maybe the Finals.

Fred Vanvleet has been beyond terrible, probably Masaiís biggest blunder was falling in love with him after one season. Slow, small, bad shooter, average passer, nothing on D. Just a brutal bench right now and Nurse continues to not try other options. Every time FVV is on the court in the playoffs the other team goes on a run. Itís been like clockwork.

If the raptors lose this series itís because their bench is atrocious, the difference between George Hill and FVV is massive.

I did, but I predicted the Raptors would win this game and then the Bucks would take four straight. I thought in this one they'd ride the high of game 7 and catch the Bucks napping a bit after a long layoff. They nearly did just that. But given that they blew it I would not be surprised at all if this was a sweep, especially since I can't imagine you'll see a better Lowry performance than this in games 2/3/4, and I expect Giannis will just get better.

he's been an all star once in 2013

his ppg with the bucks was 12.5 with 4.9 rebounds; he had 29 and 11 last night

he just set a career playoff high in the ECC... that's the definition of the game of his life...

This is what’s crazy about just how good the Warriors should have been this year...no Durant, no Cousins and they still get out to a 2-0 lead in the Western Conference finals.

Most teams don’t even have two USA Dream Team members on the team, the Warriors can be missing two Dream team members (and the two guys who got criticized for joining the team) and they can still roll out Curry, Thompson, Iguodala, Green, and Bogut as a starting lineup.

What I think annoys me about Durant joining the Warriors is that I think this team could have been a dynasty without him but now because he joined it kind of feels hollow.

He's not in the prime of his career, but you're acting like he's some scrub who just had the night of his life. No, if he isn't defended well he could average 20 a game, as he did basically the first 10 years of his career. He's a role player now, but he used to be one of the better offensive centers in the league.
