The refs are way too involved and this ending, they are just looking for whistles.

Pacers are really getting the shaft here.

The refs were looking for calls at the end there and got like 80% of them wrong. Horrible ending to a good game.

Twolves are going to win this series.

Their defense is reeking havoc.

Both teams play tough defense and have every player confident to shoot the ball without the Suns type of big-3 vs role players discrimination. None of our rotation players match any of Ind/NY players' defensive intensity, not in regular season games nor in the playoffs. Only Okogie may contain Brunson a bit who was however out of rotation.

They really, really are forcing Denver into bad shots.

It seems like suns offense looked better than this in terms of shot quality.

Around 10' in the 2nd qrt, Murray stopped dribble just past the midline, the double teaming by McD and Alex-Walker gave him no chance to pass out for like 10 sec; ending in 24" violation. I recall we also got Ant doubled similarly but failed to be tight and aggressive enough to achieve the same effect, ending several times to Ant's assists.

Denver is so frustrated with the D the bench is throwing stuff on the court and the refs didn’t even call a tech because they felt sympathy for them.

Remember how we blew out the Wolves twice late in the season?


Yeah, no one else does either.

If the Denver Nuggets are going to cry about calls in this game they ought to go look at what Minnesota got away with in the first two games of our series. This tonight was like the average game in the first round with us except maybe the last game.

Turns out length and the best defense does indeed cause problems to good teams. We looked more competitive than these Nuggets right now…

The NBA has to make sure that either New York or Boston is in the finals since all of the marquee western teams are already out of the playoffs
