NBA Playoffs Update:

  • Durable Durant won’t let the Dubs run out of power, as he rises to the challenge posed by an invigorated band of Cavaliers with an unending orgy of points, including a deep, deep three that completely sucked the life out of The Quicken Quack Factory. Now, a few questions that Ty Lue needs to respond to. First, what we he thinking sticking with stinking JR Smith (5-14, plus the usual miscues), when he could have put his trust in Rodney “I just came out of the closet” Hood. Also, was there any consideration given to doubling KD or doing something more to avoid the consistent (and ridiculous) mismatches in terms of over-matched, single defenders. Maybe these questions should more appropriately posed to the real commander-in-chief, LBJ? #Cavaliers #Warriors
  • If the Caps don’t hurry up with it, the unthinkable may happen … they give away the Larry O’Brien Trophy before someone hoists up the Cup…

NBA Playoffs Update:

  • Whatever defensive scheme the Cavs were running, it wasn’t too well conceived, as Curry delivers a record no. of threes, and secondary Warrior options McGee and Livingston were making a living getting exactly the shots they wanted. On a night when LeBron looked a bit subdued and barely held his own against KD, Game 2 was a forgone conclusion, and all Cleveland can do is pin its hopes on Game 3. #Cavaliers #Warriors

NBA Playoffs Update:

  • GSW survives a big scare in Game 1, which was utterly winnable for the Cavs. The pace of this game was perfect for LeBron, and Durant was a total observer in the 2nd half. JR can say what he wants about what he knew or didn’t know, but his lips and his actions at the time tell the story. You give the Warriors an opening, and you will pay. #Cavaliers #Warriors

NBA Playoffs Update:

  • Same formula as Game 6 for the most part, with a little more drama, and it’s deja vu all over again; Houston never gets the obvious hint, particularly in Quarter 3, that maybe the strategy of jacking up 3s is not forever fruitful. Most likely, GSW would’ve won anyway, but this was an ugly and painful descent for the team with the NBA’s best record. Next victim: Cleveland…#Warriors #Rockets

NBA Playoffs Update:

  • LeBron haters (yours included) now must place their faith on the scrawny shoulders of Kevin Durant, unless Houston can come up with some magical, emergency repairs at the Toyota Center. Congrats to the Celtics for a fine season under the circumstances, but if you want to be a championship contender you usually can’t do it with panic threes. The young Boston talent was just not up for the challenge today, with the exception of Tatum. It was also a bit surprising that Stevens lost control of his offense by the middle of the fourth quarter, when misguided long range bombs were flying free and easy.

    One thing’s clear — nobody takes control of a huge game with more authority than the King, wherever he plays. #Celtics #Cavaliers

NBA Playoffs Update:

  • Rockettes get scared in the 2nd half, and there was nobody around to assure them that all was, or could be, well. No Kevin Bacon, no Chris Paul, and without the latter, it will all be the same in game 7. Better pray something loosens up that hammy. #Rockets #Warriors PS…. Mike, you should realize it isn’t lucky to rigidly implement a 7-man system if you want to win a title.
  • Time for some people to stand up and step up … if they can…

NBA Playoffs Update:

  • Houston puts the clamps on the defending champs with a god awful, gut check victory. And the win may have been too costly, depending on how bad Paul’s pulled hammy really is. For whatever reason, Kerr insisted on a pure “no center policy”, keeping McGee and Pachulia out of the game completely, and abandoning any concerted effort to establish even a hint of offense down low against the pushy, aggressive, but comparatively diminutive, Houston defenders.
  •  Yes, the Rockets won … by playing intense defense, causing turnovers and getting to the line … but they’ll probably need a bit more structure on offense to get this done in 7, as sooner or later they’ll run out of success with running down the shot clock, and there won’t be scant Durant in the fourth quarter forever. In the meantime, they’re high fiving each other in Clutch City after a very important win in Game 5. #Rockets #Warriors

NBA Playoffs Update:

  • Poor exhausted LeBron probably should have never put his jersey on for tonight’s throw away game in the Garden. Cleveland tried to fake it, but tonight their leader just wasn’t bringing it, and the James master plan appears to be to get a shot of adrenaline for Game 6, and then lay it all on the line in Game 7. This strategy usually works in the Eastern Conference, but based on what we saw tonight, don’t count on it. Boston is just coming at the King from too many angles, resulting in mental and physical fatigue, missed shots, and … turnovers. And if Houston can get by GSW, this team in green can, indeed, win it all. #Cavaliers #Celtics

NBA Playoffs Update:

  • Surprisingly scrappy Rockets recover from morbid first and third quarters to give the self-assured Dubs some serious electro shock therapy. It looks like they found a formula that worked, including in-you-face defense, getting to the line, and working hard (even smiling) while Draymond and the rest of the cry baby Warriors whine. Go get’m Rockets! #Rockets #Warriors

NBA Playoffs Update:

  • Another moment of truth looms for the Celtics, as Cleveland holds up their end with a workmanlike, grind-it-out win on their own floor. After getting blown up in yet another pathetic 1st quarter, Boston hung around (sort of), while LeBrontosaurus picked off the low hanging fruit and fed his teammates whenever possible. Now the scene shifts back to the garden, where meals haven’t been so plentiful for the Cavaliers. Boston hopes its fragile psyche is suitably propped up; lord knows tonight’s showing was not that of a conference champ (barely 40% shooting and getting thrashed on the boards, in blocks and in terms of losing the battle for loose balls). #Celtics #Cavaliers
  • I agree with the ref — this is painful to watch…
