    Good day. I thought this would be the boring day but lot of interesting games. Missed the ist game but very close 2nd game with GS winning. Then the major upset in Indy - I think ATL just may knock them out, we are about due for a ist seed to lose. And one of my adopted teams , OKC, is looking good.

    Hate me is you want but I am rooting for Miami to win their 3rd straight. I think its going to be OKC vs Miami.

    I'm not against Miami winning this year.

    Tony Allen is ridiculous when he's on defensively. He is everywhere.

    The Pacers are stacked with talent. It doesn't really make sense but it looks like they may fall to an 8 seed. I liked that Pero dude getting into it with West.

    Given the 30 for 30 Bad Boys as a backdrop the question becomes what do you do to the team if the Pacers lose?

    Pistons, pacers, and nets are the teams that I think of as being tough during my life.

    I'm not sure I can take another round of the Hawkzzz. Gimme the Heat, Bulls, Pacers and whoever in the Nets/Raps series in the next round. Heat vs Bulls would be the ECF I prefer (if that's possible).

    In the West my boys are the Clips, Griz, Spurs and Rockets. If possible, a WCF between Clips and Griz.

    A Clips-Heat finals could be entertaining. A threepeat or a ring for Paul would both be nice outcomes.

    I've not fallen off the "I hate Heat" bandwagon. They will probably sweep Charlotte without breaking too much of a sweat. I'd be surprised if they don't make it to at least ECF. I'm still rooting for the Pacers to come out of the east. Don't sleep on those guys. Hawks may have stolen game 1, but that series won't go to 6 games. Pacers will take it 4-1.

    For the record, that Korver block on Hibbert was sick.

    That's disgraceful, he should be suspended for the rest of the playoffs! He's lucky another Malice didn't break out.

    Just about every guard I'm seeing is miles better than anyone on the Pistons.

    Lilliard = wow!!!

    Aldridge broke the Portland franchise record for a playoff game with 46 points. But Lilliard was the one who won the game in the end. Wow. It was an amazing game. I doubt Rockets can get past the Blazers. McHale completely got outcoached in this game.

    On the Rockets side, Chandler Parsons is my new favorite player. That kid can score.

    Lillard is clutch but him and Harden are really about equal for their complete lack of defensive ability. At least Lillard tries - it looks like I could blow past Harden he is so poor effort wise on defense.

    I got to watch most of this game before I had to study but LMA has really made the leap. McHale and the Rockets are just at a loss about how to defend a PF who can rebound, bully in the paint, pass and score from anywhere on the court.

    Chandler Parsons is a free agent next year. He is going to get paid.

    The Rockets are Rockets of usual and it was their typical way to lose a game.
    DH won't came to any CF game until he improve his FT.
    I love to watch Harris Barnes play and would rather say his age was false.

    Let me get this right:
    Wizz is in the POs........with a win for the first time since 1980
    Bobcats are in the POs
    Raptors are in the POs
    Did JD help Raps get in POs ?

    Great post. This truly emphasizes just how HORRIBLE this Pistons season has been. You truly had to suck to not make the Eastern Conference playoffs.

    Looks like Mike Woodson might need a job.

    he did an excellent job as Larry Brown's assistant during that championship season.....

    ...it's just a question with going with the old Piston DNA or something new. I would prefer Laims if we go with the old and Lionel Hollins for new.... If either wants to add Woodson as an assistant, I got no problem with that.

    Looks like (former) Jazz coach Ty Corbin is free to look for a new job too.
