Celtics Lead Cleveland 61-35 At Halftime

I really thought Cleveland was going to clobber the Celtics and have a cakewalk to the finals.  The Celtics have lots of key players injured.  But, the Celtics pulled off the win in Game 1.  (unless they have a mega-choke in the 2nd half, doubtful)

I thought that Toronto, Philadelphia, and Indiana all had a shot to beat Cleveland.

Feels like game 1 in series 1.

538 now gives the Celtics a 60% chance to win the series (seems high), but Houston or GS are expected to win the NBA Finals easily.

The Knicks are going to suck for at least a few more years.

They gave a near-max contract to Joakim Noah, who isn't even playing replacement-level.  That's 20% of their cap room wasted for the next two years.  If they waive-and-stretch him, they're just prolonging the cap overhand for longer.  They're better off just soaking up the hit for 2 years (when they're going to suck anyway).

They're fighting with Porzingis, their alleged future superstar (who is injured now anyway).

At least the Knicks didn't trade away all their draft picks like the Nets.
