NBA Update:

  • Instead of being even Steven after 6, this series is a done deal in favor of the C’s after Boston works the Stevens spread (5 behind the arc) to near perfection. #Celtics #Bulls
  • Wall may be small, but keeping him in your sights (particularly when he’s behind) is quite a tall order; just ask disappointed Dennis. #Wizards #Hawks
  • Yes the Clippers have a checkered playoff history, but they are still proud, and if want to put them away you had better give them an ice pick through the heart.  Utah made way too many turnovers, and made a big mistake by not calling timeout for the final, 3-point shot.  They’ll need way more poise and precision to win a game 7 in LA. #Clippers #Jazz

NBA Update:

  • Spurs do the rational thing and kill off the Grizzlies in 6; Parker had better get his rest, because Patrick Beverley is licking his chops, and it’s a good thing for SA’s old bones that they have the weekend to recuperate. #Spurs #Grizzlies
  • Milwaukee falls into the notorious deep hole trap, falling just short of the finish line with a furious rally that nearly takes down the Raptors. #Raptors #Bucks

NBA Update:

  • SA gets a needed spark from Patty and Parker, but they’d be well-advised to finish the spunky Grizzlies off in Game 6, as round 1 was not supposed to be this much of a tussle. Grizzlies can take heart that they were in this game for the long haul, and when they get back to the Grindhouse they’ll be ready to really brawl. #Grizzlies #Spurs
  • A not very bubbly Westbrook runs outta gas in the 4th, and surprise surprise Rockets barely digest the near triple double. With a highly effective Lou Williams and the multi-functional Patrick Beverly, this Houston team has more character and weapons than last year’s group and should give the Spurs a real run for their money. #Thunder #Rockets
  • Slightly Cinderella Jazz wear the magic slippers against the klutzy Clippers. Utah softens LAC up with a steady dose of Gordo, George and Gobert and then goes for the jugular with the silent killer on the road, Joe Johnson. #Jazz #Clippers

NBA Update:

  • Toronto yells “Cheers” to heretofore unassuming Norm, and Kidd yells for Engelbert to sing him to sleep “after the drubbing”. #Bucks #Raptors
  • Too bad the Blazers don’t still play in the Rose Garden; tonight, in their next home, they were clearly Men Without Love from the basketball gods. #Trailblazers #Warriors
  • If you took offense to the way the washed up Wizards played defense tonight, you were completely excused from Washing your mouth out. #Wizards #Hawks
  • Please release me from Westbrook’s overprotective outburst.  Yeah, Russ, you’re are definitely right there’s no “i” in team, but don’t forget there also an i in idiot. #Warriors #Rockets

NBA Update:

  • Clipper fortitude and grit turns to @#$%#$ as Crawford jacks up a bunch of hope/panic shots in crunchtime, and the old, reliable Chris Paul crutch breaks down; meanwhile, Joe Johnson gives Utah more than a puncher’s chance of taking the air out of Ballmer’s ballers. #Clippers #Jazz
  • Don’t bank on Chicago making it to the promised land with Canaan, as a replacement for Rondo. On the other hand, with their confidence back the Celtics seem to believe in their changes with the prophet Isaiah. #Celtics #Bulls
  • Does Billy D. remember how to coach, let alone design plays? There is no way Houston should have been as close as it was at halftime, and the OKC offense continues to provide a lovely platform for Westy’s bloated personal stats, but does nothing but encourage his entourage to be nothing more than helpless dependents. The Rockets are now set up for a 5-game series win, and some needed rest, in advance of taking on the winner of Mephis-SA. #Rockets #Spurs
  • Pacers are a totaled disappointment yet again, as Paul George gets his wish for the last shot… right after he almost commits the game’s last turnover. This is a team with some great parts, but without a big toe, which is of course a fatal flaw. #Cavaliers #Pacers

NBA Update:

  • Spurs find coming from behind to be a real grind at the Grindhouse, as younger brother Gasol’s runner with time running out evens the series. Pop can’t be happy knowing this first rounder is sapping precious fuel from an aging assault vehicle. #Spurs #Grizzlies
  • According to Morris, Millsap is just a whiny sap; according to today’s scoreboard, he was nothing more than a total hero. #Wizards #Hawks
  • Not much clapping in Bucksville as Raptors buck up just in time. #Bucks #Raptors
  • Warriors take offense at being called shorthanded, and with a very cold blooded efficiency, reach right in to Rip City’s chest, and rip the heart right out.  #TrailBlazers #Warriors

NBA Update:

  • LAC shows surprising staying power, offsetting the loss of Griffin when Paul does it all and Mbah a Moute emerges from obscurity to scrape together a much appreciated 15. Jazz will be kicking themselves for letting this one slip away. #Clippers #Jazz
  • Rockets taken down in OKC town by Thunderous outburst, signaling what we all that would happen … an intense battle to the death that seems destined for 7. #Rockets #Thunder
  • C’s perk up in Chicago, when Al Horford shows a pulse and Rondo’s departure puts the Bulls out to pasture. Hope springs eternal in Boston for the all-but-written-off Celtics. #Celtics #Bulls

NBA Update, Recap and Perspectives: Thursday, 4-20

NBA Update:

  • How fitting that on 4-20 day, Pacers space out with a 25 pt lead, and end up shorting out their pacemakers. Yes, when you’re playing LeBron anything is possible, but please, this loss is a pathetic testament to Indiana’s utter lack of heart and poise under fire. Larry Bird just expressed another painful cringe. #Cavaliers #Pacers
  • Griz looked focused and sharp, while the Spurs seemed oddly sloppy, if not detached. Nothing for Fizdale to throw a fit about, and the Popateer is reduced to pulling the strings on his starters and waiving the white flag a bit early. #Spurs #Grizzlies
  • In a town that hasn’t seen this much basketball buzz since the days of Ray Allen, the very blue collar Bucks are building the foundation for something truly impressive. #Raptors #Bucks

NBA Update:

  • Rockets’ superior balance throws OKC off the teeter totter, despite another swollen stat sheet line for prodigious producer Westbrook. #Thunder #Rockets
  • Washington hits the jackpot when it spins the Beal of Fortune, leaving Hawks decidedly behind the 8-ball, down two and heading home to like their wounds. #Hawks #Wizards
  • Who cares if Durant can’t be found … Warriors assail the Blazers with a sudden jolt of Javail and turn Oracle into Waste Management Arena by the beginning of the 4th … can you say garbage time?

NBA Update:

  • Garden party for disgruntled and forgotten Bulls is orchestrated by the sweet music of conductor and ex-Celtic Rajan Rondo. #Bulls #Celtics
  • Toronto saves face by battling back to 1-1 against young Bucks. Whether the rest of the Raptors can continue to pitch in like they did tonight is anyone’s best guess, which makes the future uncertain for Air Canada’s soaring dinosaurs. #Bucks #Raptors
  • Clippers impose their will on a Jazz team that frankly looked a bit spent, setting up a big showdown in SLC. #Clippers #Jazz

NBA Update:

  • Yes, their offense was indeed woeful, but Griz struggles are directly attributable to the fact that Tony Allen’s not back, and there’s nobody to cover Kawhi. Hoping Vince Carter can pick up the defensive slack…. get real…. #Grizzlies #Spurs
  • Cleveland leaves Pacers for dead a little too early, but lives to tell about it anyway. #Pacers #Cavaliers

NBA Update:

  • More experienced Bulls take control underneath and in the series with a impressive road win. If Boston wants to win, they’ll need to do a much better job under the boards. #Bulls #Celtics
  • With KD taking off the kid gloves, a huge game from Portland’s star guards isn’t nearly enough, particularly with the absence of big man Jusuf. #TrailBlazers #Warriors
  • Wiz kids’ offensive rush overwhelms obstinate Hawks. #Hawks #Wizards
  • Unfortunately tonight for OKC, the Beard looked more like Russell Athletic (6 for 23), and vice a versa. #Thunder #Rockets

NBA Update:

  • Look out behind you, Jo Jo’s got his gun; he wouldn’t mean to…. You know he likes his fun, and with a money move as time expires, Utah takes Game 1. #Jazz #Clippers
  • If this continues, the aged Grizzlies will look like survivors of the Battle of Antietam, as they trudge home 0-2. Whew, this one got ugly quickly in the 2nd half, and in a major way. #Grizzlies #Spurs
  • Cavs continue to have a tough time focusing, both on defense and from the charity stripe, and when it comes to gripes, put Paul George first on the list after CJ’s off target, last second leaner. #Pacers #Cavaliers
  • Bucks up the ante in game 1 with Antetokounmpo, along with lots of missing ingredients from 2 for 11 Kyle Lowry. #Bucks #Raptors

MLB Update:

  • Southpaw Sale carves up the Rays like he was cutting up a jersey. #RedSox #Rays
  • Marlins measure up deGrom in startling display of 2nd inning power. #Marlins #Mets
  • Giant bats weren’t too noisy against Chatwood. #Rockies #Giants
  • Cutch finds the wind a very useful crutch in C-town. #Cubs #Pirates
  • Chisox sent home with no milk and cookies thanks to Santana’s near no-no. #WhiteSox #Twins
  • Hard to remember when winning and the Reds went together like a wink and a smile …. wonderful things happen when Winker makes his first major league connection. #Brewers #Reds
  • Cesar found Blanton’s bland offerings much to his liking. #Phillies #Nationals
  • Who are these imposters in Cardinal unis? #Cardinals #Yankees
