Round 2 is in full swing

NBA: Playoffs-Oklahoma City Thunder at Houston Rockets Thomas B. Shea-USA TODAY Sports

We’re fully into round two of the NBA Playoffs. Farewell, Clippers.

Toronto Raptors at Cleveland Cavaliers | Game 1

4 PM PT

The Raptors survived their scare with Milwaukee, and rewarded with the Cavs and LeBron James. I mean, it’s really not fair. Both of these teams limped into the playoffs, but it’s hard to see a way that the Raptors take this series. Crazier things have happened though.

Houston Rockets at San Antonio Spurs | Game 1

6:30 PM PT

This should be such a fun series. Two great teams, two great superstars, two colliding styles of play. I’m going to be watching to see which team dictates the pace. Will the Spurs have Kawhi Leonard guard James Harden the whole time? Or will the try to save him for his offense? Should be fun.

Bonus discussion topic: With the Clippers knocked out, what will they do? Do they blow up the whole thing? Try to rebuild around Chris Paul? Lots of tough decisions coming for LA. Luckily they have such a savvy GM who has shown hahahahahahahahaha sorry I couldn’t get through that whole thought.
