Topics include: Whether Harden and the Rockets were playing with a purpose Sunday, why this is bad for the NBA, Harden's continued struggles in the playoffs, Kevin Durant's brilliance, and why the next few weeks of the Warriors could be fascinating. Then (38:00): Picking up the pieces after the Celtics shocked the Bucks in Game 1, including thoughts on Giannis struggles, Bud adjustments, Horford going superhuman, Brogdon's absence, and the next steps for both teams. At the end (55:00): Toronto is still cold in late-April and Canadians are liars, the Sixers look lost, and Kawhi Leonard looks unbelievable.A special thanks to our sponsors at Pro Flowers and Mattress Firm.
