    That was a great game. I really enjoyed the two LeBron passes at the end. Mike Miller is so fragile now he injures himself shooting a wide open jumper? I never thought Indiana could come back from that first loss.

    I'm definitely on the Brian Shaw bandwagon now. That was cool, him over there yelling 'Ball Don't Lie'. And it was the TRUTH. But I didn't hear our man Sheed gettin any credit......

    Grizzlies led 29-11 just before the end of the qtr, and a quick bucket in closing seconds rolled over to a 9-0 run to get the Spurs back in the game. They chipped away and took the lead midway thru the 4th and the game went into OT where Duncan dominated and the Grizz find themselves down 3-0. As we all know, no team in the NBA playoffs history has ever come back from an 0-3 deficit. Teams up 3-0 are 107-0.....

    Looks like no second ring for Tay this season.

    I was rooting for the Grizzlies at the start of the series, because I wanted to see Tay make it to the Finals once again, but now I want the Spurs, because they are the only ones who I believe that have a legitimate shot at knocking off the Heat if they make it to the Finals! I want anyone to win it all, except Miami! I hate the Heat!

    The drop off in quality of play between Spurs/Grizz and the ECF is dramatic to me. Gasol is having a terrible series.

    I think Spurs got a decent chance of beating the Heat. They remind me of the '11 Mavs.

    Will the Heat put LeBron on Tony Parker if they play each other in the Finals?

    The only thing more exciting I can think of than a Pacers - Spurs finals is a Hawks - Spurs finals. Lets hope the Grizz makes it 107-1.

    Maybe they can make the Heat sit in the stands of all the games to boost ratings?

    Or, they could have a big, live show the day before each game where LeBron announces his decision on where that game will be played.

    I love watching these Spurs. The look of determination on their faces reminds me of the original Bad Boys. I haven't seen Duncan play like this in a long time. And, Leonard is legit. I can't wait to watch him guard James. He's got the poise of a champion. Great talent, and it feels like he's been playing for the Spurs forever. If we called SAS and offered a Moose for Leonard deal, Pops might have a heart attack for laughing too hard.

    I really really hope that Spurs end up playing Miami and kicking their butts. Not because I don't like the Heat, but because that would be the ultimate slap in David Stern's miserable face.

    I don't think Stern would be to turribly upset if the Spurs whipped the Heat. I mean yeah he was critical of Pop shipping his key players back home, but even the reserves came within a couple of buckets of beating the Heat in Miami earlier in the season.

    As good as we all thought the Grizzlies were, they fell short in every aspect of the series with Parker out playing Conley and Duncan and Splitter out playing both Zebo and Mark Gasoft the so called DPOY ( give me a break...):bs:.

    It was one of those series that once it got to game 3 and the Grizz couldn't hold on to their double digit lead, we knew the series belonged to the Spurs, the only question was it 4 or 5 games. Tay who played a key role in getting W's for the Grizz over the Clippers and Thunder was a non-factor in this series.

    The so called older Spurs will now have to rest a week before the finals start, but I am thinking they can beat Heat and since is is an odd year, (the previous Spurs victories have a been in odd years 99. 03, 05, 07,) the karma is with them. Plus Pop and Duncan have never lost in a NBA finals matchup.

    Kind of stunned by the Grizz loss. I guess I never really expected them to win, but I sure didn't expect them never to actually get into their game. Pretty perfect game plan pretty perfectly executed.

    I'm left with cheering for Indy for a few more games.
