Allen did hit the huge 3 in the Finals against the Spurs in that game 6 near miracle win. Of course the Spurs had a chance to ice it at the FT line prior. And, Lebron knocked Manu Ginobili into the 2nd row (no call) on a "blocked" shot that was a likely 4 point swing in the final minute too. But, in the NBA, the stars/ favorites get control of the golden whistle. I watched a little bit of the Warrior/ Rockets game 7 to see if that had changed at all. I think I watched 8 possessions in the 2nd quarter. On 2 of them James Harden of the Rockets was hammered while attempting 3 point shots. One was so bad that the ball ended up clanking off the side of the backboard. No call. The "WWE fix" was in. I'd be more interested if the NBA would just admit they are theatrical entertainment instead of fake competition.
And be had 9 points that game. Maybe if he were better then and hadn't shot 30% that game that one 3 he made all game wouldn't need that 3 pointer
Rays talent level at 38 years old is nothing, absolutely nothing compared to Pippens talent in the bulls days. Allen wouldn't even see 5 minuets if he at 38 were on the Bulls
Very interested to see how both teams come out and plays game 2.
Part of me thinks Golden State will roll past Cleveland with ease tonight and the series is already over. Golden State was better to begin with. They saw Cleveland can give them a game and now will be even more focused. Cleveland had their window. It closed. Done.
Part of me thinks Cleveland will use the game 1 stuff as a way to focus even more, and sneak past in Game 2 with a hard fought victory. Then the series heads back to the Midwest with a lot of intrigue.
60 percent of me thinks Scenario A will happen. 15 percent scenario B and 20 percent says Cleveland loses another close one. 5 percent Cleveland rolls big.
