    I'm old enough to remember when Bill Laimbeer's Mom would light his cigarettes at halftime.

    If you haven't been watching, now it the time to tune in. 4th Q, the game is within 5 pts.

    I think it is over. I stopped watching. GS is like a flood, once they start rolling, it's disaster for the opponent.

    Haven't left my TV since it 30-25 Cavs....best finals game in a long time....but unless Lebron stops the Warriors last 8 possession and he scores on the next 6, it may be over....for the Cavs

    I actually thought it was kind of boring. Having a "super team" takes all of the suspense out of the playoffs. ZZZZzzzzzz.......

    Those key threes coming from Iggy and JR, , Just when it seem that Warriors were going to run away with it, the Cavs would make a comeback. They didn't fold even when the Warriors had that 30-2 run.

    Cavs definitely have the best shot of beating the warriors of any team. But they need a little more help. They are close.

    Bench scoring was 35 to 7 tonight.

    Golden State's roster is 2x as talented as Cleveland.

    Tough battle for Cleveland, they were totally outgunned.

    They will have an interesting summer I imagine.

    For sure, and Detroit needs to move on Millsap before Cleveland does.

    Where would you go if you were Millsap?

    Regarding the Cavs, LeBron will demand changes. I don't think Cavs fans have any "Love" for Kevin anymore.

    If he prevents Hawaii from being nuked, then that's a good thing. I don't care how he does it. He can be giving Kim footrubs, while in full geisha makeup for all I care.

    I was really disappointed in Love. His game is too slow for 2017. It is depressing because our entire roster plays at his speed.

    The problem is that I am not sure there is much of a market for him, and his contract may be a millstone.

    16 out of 17 for GS. What other major sport does the top team dominate the next best team? Worse. The Cavs played well and by today's watered-down league standards, are a very good team. The Cavs themselves are far ahead of the almost all the rest of the teams. Team NBA 1 and Team NBA 2.

    Nobody can stop anybody. 129 to 120. In a finals? You see either threes or easy lay ups or free throws. No mid-range game.

    Small ball. You see Thompson or Le Bron bully their way to the basket. Le Bron maybe but Thompson? And Le Bron can score any time he wants going to the hoop. Only fatigue prevents him from doing it more. Uncontested lay ups.

    Whose the next Team NBA to challenge? This Cav team can't beat GS so what does Le Bron do? Bring in somebody or leave? The players will all be talking to each other this summer...

    I agree with Sheed. The Pistons would beat GS and so would some of the other past champions. Agree with Stephen A. Smith who calls out the mismatch of a playoffs for what it is. Just like in politics most of the announcers will tow the party line and say how great the playoffs were. I blame the league owners and the commissioner for allowing this imbalance of talent to occur and continue on.

    The rubber game has been played and it's time for new faces in the finals. Even LeBron should be tired of it. Eight finals for him, three vs the Warriors and three vs the Spurs and one each vs the Mavs and Thunder. 3 and 5 in the finals....not the worst of all time, but bad for the those too young to remember that other HOF's have worst final % such as Baylor, West and Wilt.....and other HOF's who have no rings such as Ewing, Barkley, Malone and Stockton.

    If you can't beat them join them....that means join the west ....I heard a disturbing rumor from Jaylen Rose that LeBron may sign with the Lakers in for the 18-19 season....please say it ain't so.

    At least Moog doesn't need to flip-flop to get on the correct bandwagon.

    Haha opened this expecting Tim Donaghy.

    And got Tim Donaghy.

    No idea why people listen to this annoying douche. He got caught out playing the spread from behind a whistle and has spent countless years trying to explain it away as some big conspiracy of the NBA controlling who wins and loses. It's just a play on peoples emotional bias against referees.

    I'm pretty sure there is a meta-study on refereeing in football (soccer) for offside calls. People had been whingeing about linesman getting it wrong all the time for years. The result? 98+% accuracy by the linesman.

    This kind of nonsense rarely stands up to scrutiny and this guy is a loser of the highest order.
