SB Nation Network NBA Playoffs Open Thread: Sunday Funday Edition

Welcome to the intergalactic communal game thread where NBA fans from all over the planet universe gather to discuss Sunday's four playoff games. Be nice.

Living the dream...
Living the dream...

Picture in your mind the bar scene from Star Wars. For those not with us in 1976, here's what I'm talking about as re-enacted by the Great Richard Pryor (and if you don't know who he is then we can't be friends).

That's what this Network-wide Open Playoff Thread Game is and forever shall be. It's a big bar scene with NBA freaks fans coming together to chat about Star Wars.

Be friendly to the alien life forms you might encounter here or the thread's bouncers might be forced to BLAST YOU with their laser blaster ban pistols.

"These are not the trolls you are looking for."

Sunday's Playoff Game Schedule:

GAME 1: New York Knicks vs. Boston Celtics at 1pm ET / 10am PT on ABC

The Knicks lead 3-0 and will go for the sweep over their big bros to the north but will be w/o the elbows of J.R. Smith who's serving a suspension for laying too much pipe. Seriously though, who among us hasn't dreamed of elbowing Jason Terry in the grill?

GAME 2: Miami Heat vs. Milwaukee Bucks at 3:30pm ET / 12:30pm PT on ABC

LeBron will sweep the Bucks. Game over. Open your beer now and pour one out for the Bucks.

GAME 3: San Antonio Spurs vs. Los Angeles Lakers at 7:00pm ET / 4:00pm PT on TNT

Beat LA! Mission about to be accomplished.

GAME 4: Golden State Warriors vs. Denver Nuggets at 9:30pm ET / 6:30pm PT on TNT

Chances are good the start of the best game of the day won't be shown on TV because Turner can't figure out how to use its dedicated NBA channel to handle situations where the early game runs late (as they always do). So, let me say in advance, GRRRRRRR!
