And the Clips are ousted by Denver as Boston loses a classic game one duel to Miami. BOS / LA still possible, but now far from certain!

Not surprised to see Doc Rivers out as head coach. He
has good players, but couldn't do anything with them.

I think Mark Jackson would be a good replacement.

Considering Jackson was crucial in assembling the Warriors club and got fired right as they were on the verge of championship greatness, there'd be some symmetry if he got the shot to push the supremely talented but underachieving Clips over the edge. Jackson and Rivers were even teammates on the Knicks in the early 90s. Totally agree Rivers had plenty of bites at the apple but underachieved consistently.

D'Antoni is another one in the rumor mill; I think he'd be a bad choice as he's an equal underachiever who was particularly poor during his stint in LA with the Lakers. He also has a rep for too much emphasis on threes (the Clips are a middling three point shooting team) and not much interest in defense.

Lakers / Heat finals starts Wednesday. Lakers are rightly the favorites but the questions for me: can Davis contain Bam Adebayo? Can rookie Tyler Herro get red hot the way he did vs. Boston? Herro was a huge problem from the outside who not only scored 37 points in one game (only Magic has done that at his age) but also created opportunities for Butler and Adebayo on the inside with his credible threat from three. Dragic also needs to continue his good shooting and driving (those four are averaging nearly 80 PPG combined).
