Let's see I hit the opponent score on the knob, 86.
Yeah, I'll take some lovin' for that.
You are the score picking man...
With my diseases I'm also a sore pickin' man.

one thing i was really impressed with (if this was by design): at one point in the 2nd or 3rd quarter lebron was bringing the ball up halfcourt, we only had 1 or 2 team fouls, rip didn't have many.
he basically hounded lebron up to halfcourt and played real tight and physical on him, knowing he was going to get a foul called. i thought that was a great play because they could afford to have the foul called, and it kept lebron out of any comfort zone he might have had, and forced the cavs to inbound and play halfcourt on the next possession.
I'm not sure if it's the same play you're talking about, wart, but on a play like the one you described, the announcers even commented on it and praised rip, citing it as an example of the sort of little thing an intelligent, veteran team thinks to do in the playoffs. like you said, it keeps him out of his comfort zone. it might seem like one play, but with a player like Lyndon Baines Johnson, one tough hoop (or a three point play) can easily lead to 10 straight.
Couple things noone has talked about:
Rip's heart ~ I think they picked the wrong person for the "D-Wade picking himself up again" commercial.
Delfino looks lost ~ Man, has his stock dropped. His confidence appears to be at all-time low.
Rip circus shot in the first quarter ~ So pretty. Dribble, step, cradle, scoop layup. NICE!!
Delk and Rip's man to man Defense ~ We really don't have any weaknesses in our lineup on D now. (Sorry Arroyo) Delk was very effective and I'm convinced that Rip deserves 2nd team all-defense honors.
94% from three point land up to the middle of the third quarter. Incredible shooting display. One shy of three point record for the half. I'm sure TheeFD was elated.
Yeah Delfino looked lost. He showed great performances against Pierce and other good forwards and should of got more pt earlier. Evans is doing well right now so I'm hoping he gets in the rotation next season.
I say we break the record for made 3s. Why not?
