I think Toronto needed to go up 2-0 to have any chance of winning this series. They aren't going to win in Oakland, and if KD comes back, they aren't going to win at either place...




I don’t think Durant is coming back. He is no Willis Reed.

I think it depends on how the series goes. If GS goes down 3-1 (which I don't see happening), I think KD plays...otherwise, you're probably right...

Not watching. I'll only watch if it gets to the point GS could lose the Championship. In other words, I will only watch AFTER TOR wins 3 games. LOL

This series isn't looking good for GS. They have too many key players hurt, and they have no depth on the bench...and Curry can't do it all by himself...when Curry scores 40 points and the team's point total for the game is only 109, that tells me the rest of the team isn't pulling their weight. It's time they get KD in the next game...how long does it take to heal a calf injury?

What kind of odds you offering for a bet on Toronto to win? If you are as certain as you say, 25-1 odds right now would not be out of the question. If you are game, so am I, let me know.

This series may be one where it truly IS not over til it's over and hinges on who comes back, who does or doesn't contribute, or who's flat. It's starting to remind me of the 2016 finals but that might be a little premature.

I'm going out on a limb and betting even money that Durant and Thompson are both back in on Friday...and based on that likelihood, you can then resume the discussion about Toronto winning the series. The narrative's probably on hold at this point.

LeGroin didn’t say that. It was Rudy Tomjanovich.

Durant is out for the next game.

Personally, I think the moving parts of uncertainty in this series that makes the sportswriters crazy is a good thing. One of these writers got so upset that they basically went off on Durant for being out and effing with the writing formula helped by all the other uncertainties. On that count, this final is probably more exciting than it's given credit for...it seems the countdown of game eligibility that KD has left is more important to them than what actually happens in the game. Obviously, they have to win tonight or the calculus changes for both the series AND the writing.

You apparently didn't see my post after that. I think GS has too many key players out with injuries now to win this thing. Had they been 100% healthy, I think GS would've won this series in 5 games...

IMO, once a college player leaves for the NBA it’s like they fall into a black hole, never to be seen again!
