Here’s to hoping that the basketball gods reward the team with broken noses, hurt legs, injured shoulders, and arms that look like they were attacked with a lawnmower and have managed not to tweet at the NBA and whine about it.

We use these threads to discuss the game as it’s happening; post your comments, observations, cats gifs, and thoughts below. If we get significantly more than 500 comments, we’ll create a new thread to ensure that everything keeps running smoothly. Let’s keep the discussion on topic and respectful.
