NBA ratings are down. One could assume NBA execs REALLY want a Celtics/Lakers final... and one could also assume they might influence the conference finals.

^ With Boston's victory tonight, I see their Tiger Blood has already started. Only time will tell if we get the revival of a Lakers vs Celtics showdown in the finals. Fingers crossed.

Boston won last night because it's not their destiny to be the first team to come back from a 3-0 conference finals. Money still on the Heat. They were just really cold last night with the shooting and sloppy on the passing. Seriously speaking though, Bosotn played very well last night. Playing through Jaylen was a much better game plan. He won them that game.

TV Ratings: Game 2 of Eastern Conference Finals sinks to 17-year low

"Television ratings for Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals continued a trend downward for the NBA this season, with the Miami Heat's win over the Boston Celtics averaging just 3.48 million viewers.

As noted by Jon Lewis of Sports Media Watch, that was a 21 percent drop from last season's East finals Game 2 between the Toronto Raptors and Milwaukee Bucks -- and the least-watched East finals Game 2 since 2003."

Curious how these low ratings will affect the salary cap in years to come.

Gordon Hayward is a key reason why Jalen Brown had a better game, he's another point of attack Miami can't leave open so he creates more space for Brown and Tatum to operate, even if Smart hits 0 3's like last night. Hayward also defends well, makes good passes, he allows Stephens to avoid playing bench guys who are bound to have more turnovers.

Holy smokes. AD. Plumlee failed miserably on that. Didn't even try to fight over top LeBron. Jokic did the best he could running over from the inbounder.

Edit: Upon replay, Plumlee ran to LeBron instead of going with AD. WTF.

As long as Boston wins tomorrow night. I can almost taste the Lakers vs Celtics resurgence for the NBA Finals for 2020.

Celtics/Heat next game is Wednesday. I guess they want to have the ECF and WCF in-sync with each other.
