It's mind-boggling to me how these teams can be so sh1tty on the road. It's the same length of court, same height of the basket

 

The refs get caught up in the crowd, so you get more calls as home. 

 

You also have to remember that the backdrop of the basket is different on the road.  Home teams are used to seeing the basket on their home court more than on the road. 

 

It probably helps when you sleep in your own bed the night before the game, too.  :dunno:

Cavs/Celtics recap:

Game 1: LeBron was feeling them out.
Game 2: LeBron cant do it all.
Game 3: LeBron can do it all.
Game 4: LeBron will never be tired.
Game 5: LeBron is tired.
Game 6: LeBron is no longer tired.
Game 7: LeBron is tired...of Cleveland. He gone.

Good Post.  Add in teams going more and more to the 3 point shot.   When a team gets hot from 3 and the other team isn't, things escalate quickly.

I get the home court advantage. I think most people do.

But the closest margin of victory in this series has been 9 points.

As I said before, home court is probably worth 3-5 pts tops.

There is something different going on here.

Hasn't really been a competitive game yet. Sad

Not a Rockets fan. Not a Harden fan. No clue how this series ends up, but watching him dunk on Draymond and put Steph in the spin cycle gives me so much pleasure.

Now that everyone is so sure the road teams have no chance, it's time to fade the public. Celtics win.

Gordon throws himself into Durant in a shooting motion with the clock running down and gets gift wrapped three free throws.

I hate that cheap ###### ass call in a tie game.

If Durant could figure out how to score over his left shoulder in the post, Golden State might win this game.

That fade away is too easy to defend from that angle. He's putting the ball in the defender's face.

I guess he's used to just shooting over everyone.

Jumps into a defender who's on the ground.

It's embarrassing that a ref thinks that's a foul on the defender.

Surprised by how low scoring this series has been. Pathetic job on the boards by the Warriors. Curry was so lazy getting to that loose ball.

Second chance points by Paul. Harden just blocked Durant's shot.

Another post up fade away blocked. All they need to do is put him on the other block. That fade away will work.

That's not what happened, if the player is in the air you would be correct. Durant was on the ground.

And there is that stupid ###### call yet again. Of course Klay hits all three free throws that he shouldn't have had in the first place. Let the players decide the game on the court. Stop calling these soft pansy fouls behind the three point line. NBA use to be so great.

Draymond blows the game twice. Doesn't call timeout on the rebound with 10 seconds left and then shows off the butter fingers.

Wow. James Harden wasnt even a factor and Rockets still won. Never would have guessed that.

That was a great game.

I was judging by the look on his face. He looked way too pissed off. I think he knows he's done. I'm sure Kenny Smith will say it in the post game show and then everyone will be like, "oh. Gee whiz."

I was thinking more because he had to miss that last 30 seconds. Not long term. :dunno:

Definitely choked. They had a chance but he blew it.

Good game.
