    Clippers get back on track. It appeared that Steph Curry played with less passion than Sunday.

    Thunder in trouble....with the next game in Memphis

    Not ready to call the Wizards the cinderella team yet, but let them get to the ECF....then let's talk

    What a grind fest in Chicago. Blurgh.

    If the thunder could barely beat our tank squad, there must be something wrong with them.

    How awesome is the MEM-OKC series! Wow, the game goes into OT when Z-Bo's layup is too late for the buzzer, and then MEM steals the game when Ibaka's layup is too late at the end of OT. Wow. 4 games in a row decided in overtime, apparently a playoff record.

    Scott Brooks is actually clueless. He has about 3 plays that he runs. The rest is just high post PnR with Durant and iso's above the line with either Westbrook or Durant.

    He really is. Not to mention playing Fossil Fisher 25 mins a game! They should make him hand back his COY award from a few years ago. Phil Jackson has exactly one of those trophies...

    Yup. Here was the conversation he had with the team during that last time out.

    "See this board guys. I'm drawing a big turd on it because you are all going to run around and set lots of free throw line screens but only so you can inbound to big KD over here near the wing"
    "Uh coach what is someone else gets free"
    "Here is the really beauty of my plan. If someone gets free Memphis will have to scramble to cover him and Durant will get free and splash 3 point buckets over all the fans"

    This reminds me of scott brooks

    All three games tonight, the team facing elimination survived. Three game 7 on Saturday to make the NBA very happy. A 1, 2 and 3 seed will have to prove that home court is the advantage and win out.

    #1 seed Pacers took over in the last 2 minutes to beat the Hawks by 7.
    # 2 seed Thunder basically ended their game at halftime and coasted home vs the Grizzlies'
    #3 seed Clippers were the victims of their own shooting and failure to get in the paint even with Lee and O'Neal on the bench. This one went down to the wire as the Warriors edge the Clips by one point (the diff of a earlier FT tech by Curry). If the Clips lose the series, this will be the game that they will remember ..and game one.

    Paul Pierce is abusing Amir Johnson. He is blowing by him every time he has the ball. Brooklyn up 27-14 to start the game. The Raptors will need to adjust on that matchup.

    Z Randolph suspended for G7.

    The NBA has been good about staying out of its' own way so far, but this puts a damper on the game.

    Great game by Dallas....Blair and Ellis... to force another game 7. I've never seen an opening round like this.

    NBA almost got six game 7's, but last years rookie of the year Damian Lillard hits a game winning walk off three with less than 0.9 seconds left on the clock to win what appeared to be a Rocket stave off elimination win as Chandler Parsons threw in a put back deflection for them with 0.9 seconds. First playoff win for the Trailblazers in 14 years.

    There will be three game 7's on Saturday and two on Sunday as the Nets and the Mavs take care of business at home tonight and will try to win game 7 on the road on Sunday in Toronto and San Antonio.

    NBA Action.....FAN-tastic...

    Wow, I'm only sorry it didn't go to 7. I watched every game in that series and loved every minute. But it spoiled me from watching any of the East series. I tried to watch some Nets-Raps today but its just so inferior quality-wise even though its going 7 games.

    Was James Harden responsible for the defensive switch that allowed Lillard an open shot?

    Lillard and Aldridge were absolute beasts throughout the series, but Robin Lopez deserves a lot of credit as well. What an amazing series.

    Speaking of amazing performances, Blake Griffin is playing out of his mind. His defense is still not very amazing, but he is unstoppable on the offensive end.
