I think it might be best if we just had one post for the series. Then we could react as we go. We've done similarly (round-by-round) for the baseball playoffs and the World Cup, so big sporting events definitely go here.

Yeah, I tried to get basketball threads going a few years ago and there just wasn't a critical mass, but fanfare seems to have picked up since then so maybe we have enough basketball fans.

I love to watch the Warriors when they're going full steam, it's just amazing basketball, but I'm thrilled to see Toronto win game 1 and hopefully make this a series. I was rooting for them in the Eastern conference but didn't really think they'd make it past the Bucks.

I wasn't shocked after the first half but usually when a team goes up on the Warriors there's a morale-destroying third-quarter rally and that just....didn't happen. Good for Toronto, that's how you've got to deal with the champs.

I only started watching from the end of the 2nd quarter and yeah that 10 point lead felt precarious the entire time. Basketball is streaky in general but against a great team like the Warriors that lead could disappear in seconds.

I am ready for the East to be Unleashed.
