So the Warriors just beat the Spurs by 30 points. Wow, that is impressive. Wasn't expecting a blowout in that game.

Not really a surprise to me to be honest. The Warriors win was painfully predictable. For them to win by 30 points isn't too surprising either as they've already done it against some of the top teams this season.

Hornets @ Kings was the game of the day, 3 point buzzer beater at the end of the second period of overtime to give Charlotte the 129-128 win. Was waiting on the Kings for a 6-fold acca, so weren't best pleased, great viewing for the neutral though.

Thought this was pretty funny from the Knicks game last night. Felt strange to hear such loud cheers for the opposition team at Madison Square Garden.

The Warriors are on course to break the record for most games won in a single NBA season, fair play to them.

Warriors destroying the Cavs in the first two games. Hopefully Cleveland can regain some ground in the home ties but I can see GS sweeping them here.

OKC cavs would have been a much better finals, Cleveland can't get anywhere near Golden State it looks like.

After the first two games I am genuinely surprised the Cavs have pulled it back, though obviously delighted. Gonna make an effort to watch tonights game and hope they take it to the wire.

Fantastic start here by the Cavs. LeBron making highlight plays for fun in the process. Warriors just haven't gotten into gear at all and took 5 minutes to register their first points plus they're committing needless fouls left, right and centre. Fingers crossed this is going to a game 7 decider.

Curry came out on fire in the second quarter but is on the verge of being fouled out too so a bit of a mixed bag for him. Tristan Thompson is having the game of his life for the Cavs.

Did anyone see this going the distance? Great effort from the Cavs. Hope they win but still can't see it. It was improbable that Golden State would lose 2 in a row, surely impossible for them to lose 3 in a row?

Fell asleep half way through the 3rd. Didn't expect a 7 game series even before the Cavs were battered in the first two games. Will definitely be watching the final game. Warriors obvious favourites with home advantage but the momentum is with the Cavs at the moment and it would be great to witness the Cleveland curse lifted.

Big Knicks fan here, went to a game at MSG earlier in the year which was an amazing experience. Should be pretty exciting to see how we get on this coming season.

So, an absolutely batshit summer for the Celtics concludes with retaining just 4 of last season's team, few of their assets remaining and in an absolute unknown as to whether they're even any better. Kyrie is obviously fantastic but it feels like such an overpay to give up the Nets pick along with Isaiah, who statistically pretty much matched Kyrie last season.

Have sadly also had to change my avatar with Bradley being traded too...
