Bucks vs Celtics second-round series voted most likely to reach seven games

SB Nation

Please forgive the typo in the chart. I did not create it. But the interesting thing about this year’s second-round playoff is that all four have played at least six games, which means parity in the league. It’s something that has made the playoffs this season very exciting, even if the Washington Wizards are not in it.

Fans also figured out the Celtics vs. Bucks series would be seven games after Jayson Tatum’s 46-point performance last night.

Most voters don’t think dirty gambling is a bigger problem today than in the past

This question arose, in part, because of a flagrant foul by Warriors forward Draymond Green on Grizzlies post Brandon Clarke in Game 1 of their second-round series. You can see the game below.

Hard fouls are part of the game, but I don’t think the game is any harder today than it was in the 1980s and 1990s.

The fans want the refereeing to be consistent!

Like players and coaches, NBA fans want referees to be consistent in calling fouls or not. The flop was second with 21%.

Just improve the reviews or train them more, or maybe add another reference!

Again, sorry for the typo in the graphic above. Our graphics team is desperate to get the ball rolling in the NBA Draft Lottery poll (hopefully?) when the Wizards return to the spotlight.

But in our last national question, there was no runaway winner on how to improve refereeing.g consistency. First, they wanted better reviews (43%), but that can make games longer. More training was the second most selected choice with 34 percent. And 24% wanted a fourth official on the pitch. Currently, NBA games have three officials.
