NBA Pick'Em 05/03: Playoffs
Thanks for dealing with the NBA. What a game this is, am I right? Amirite!? Last night I pick the celtics to win it all and they need a last second bucket to force overtime and them win by double-digits. Did I predict that? Nope. Do I care? Kind of. But predicting OT, and then the winner of OT is really hard. I don't think anyone ever rests their cap on that.

Toronto Raptors @ Cleveland Cavaliers
Dwane Casey seemed to figure out Valanciunas couldn't play against the Cavs, to the tune of only 21 minutes in Game 1. The team played pretty well overall, but the Cavs played a lot better. In fact, the Cavs played really well. Neither team will play as well in Game 2. Games like this are hard to repeat. It'd be scary if they repeated. Unless you're the Cavs, they might repeat. They're playing really well, getting a lot of money at the box office. They're making more Fast & Furious movies as a franchise. So yeah, maybe in Game 2 you seem more Lebron and Kyrie driving fast cars and fighting nuclear submarines.
Houston Rockets @ San Antonio Spurs
Oh my god, rinse and repeat. No. Rinse and continuing rinsing until the flowing water makes you forget the atrocity. Maybe even open your mouth and let the water flow in, cut off your breathing until you embrace what the fringes of death feels like, then spit it out and cough, enjoy those seconds you're incapable of thinking. Ok, champ, get off the shower floor and dry yourself up. You've got a game to win.
