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
  • LeBronshanks looks good in Cavalier colors, doesn’t he?

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…

NBA Playoffs Update:

  • Rockets never got out of their booster chairs for this debacle at The Oracle, standing around while GSW controlled the boards, drained threes and took advantage of their accidents (20 turnovers shows a real lack of attention to detail and poor coordination). Time to cry for mommy because Sweet Baby James is not going to bail you out of this one by himself, and Paul is too short. #Warriors #Rockets

NBA Playoffs Update:

  • Cavs have no problem dwarfing Celts on the scoreboard, as this game proves once again that you snooze, you lose.  Shoddy defense and more than a spree of off-target threes by Boston, along the comforts of home mean this game was definitely a cure for insomnia, no matter who you were rooting for. #Cavaliers #Celtics

NBA Playoffs Update:
  • Boston teams up to overwhelm Cleveland, with a well balanced diet of double digit contributors. As for the Cavs, LeBron put up some gaudy numbers, but the most telling stat was his 6 turnovers… an indicator that he was trying too hard to be the beast of burden. It’s hard to see him succeeding for much longer with this supporting cast, including JR Puffinstuff Smith, who did most of his damage with his mouth, not his shot. #Cavaliers #Celtics

NBA Playoffs Update:

  • Houston tries the same tried and true formula that worked pretty well against the rest of the league tonight, but funny how that doesn’t really cut the mustard against the Dubs in the Conference Finals. One-on-one showcasing Harden and sprinkling of Paul plays right into the hands of the Warrior defense and left the two Rocket stars pretty much out of fuel by game’s end. Point a finger at Mikey D for not coming up with something a little more imaginative when the circumstances warrant; we heard you were an offensive mastermind … so where’s the evidence. On the defensive end, short, plump midgets just can’t cover Durant, and that’s the way D’Antoni wanted to go when Trevor Ariza became afflicted with a foul disease. Perhaps it sounds hilarious, but maybe they should’ve played Nene, instead of letting him rot on on the bench until the end of the third quarter.  #Rockets #Warriors
  • Listening to Mike, it sounds like all the Rockets needs is more mental toughness. But an overdose of Focus Factor won’t do the trick; they’ll need to run some plays, set some picks, move the ball around, set up scoring opportunities (besides 3’s) to Gordon, Ariza and PJ … and pray. #Rockets #Warriors

NBA Playoffs Update:

  • One team was ready from the start and eagerly playing the part of dragon slayer, while the other team was waiting for a kick in the rump and a jump … which never happened. Hounded by Morris, Brown and a few other tenacious defenders, James looked relatively detached and disinterested, and with that attitude and his uninspiring supporting cast, Cleveland was going nowhere … fast. #Celtics #Cavaliers

NBA Playoffs Update:

  • Celtics continue to be perfect at home, with a very imperfect performance featuring plenty of missed shot, a poor effort on the boards, and bad timing for misses and makes from the foul line. The Sixers will definitely be sick when they think about all the missed chances tonight, including weird, wide open misses by Redick, point black misfires by Embiid and more ridiculously off target passes. Boston dodged a bullet, but had better be more ready for battle on Sunday when Cleveland comes to town. #Sixers #Celtics

NBA Playoffs Update:

  • It was a clear case of a bunch of jackals taking down the brave, but hopelessly vulnerable, water buffalo. Such was the plight of the biggest Pelican of them all, who just didn’t have the answer for all of the weapons unleashed by the diabolical Dubs. NO’s only chance was to slow the game down to a crawl and rely on their big guy in the post; curiously, we never even saw a whiff of that strategy, and come the 3rd quarter, KD, DG and the Splash Brothers just had to make that dam burst. #Warriors #Pelicans
  • On a night when Harden was having a hard time keeping his mojo going, Chris Paul did it all, and with a little help from PJ and the gang, that was plenty good to muffle the Jazz. Now the Rockets enter the gauntlet that is waging war with the Warriors. They’ll need to be more than a little bit sharper to even take that series to 6 or 7. Possible, but not likely. #Jazz #Rockets

NBA Playoffs Update:

  • Raptor detractors were completely correct, while LeBronto mourns another ghastly post-season flame-out. Hey DeMar, stop leading us on during the regular year because eclipsing Cleveland is just a bridge too far. Spacey Casey didn’t have a clue what to do, while all Tyronn had to do was sit back and be a passive Lue. #Cavaliers #Raptors
  • Sixers finally find the right mixer, which includes more than a few shots of McConnell. #Celtics #Sixers

NBA Playoffs Update:

  • The Beard, Capella and CP “I’m not even 6 ft 3” simply bullied their way to a convincing road victory over Utah in all-important Game 4. Houston got the shots it wanted, had the edge on the boards, and generally snuffed out and repelled what was a pretty dicey Jazz attack. Lots of bricks were thrown up by Mitchell and friends, in addition to way too many turnovers. Get ready for a terrific conference finals between the top two teams in either league. #Rockets #Jazz
  • KD gets back on track, with nobody around to push him off the gravy train, and New Orleans musters little in response, including a relatively pedestrian game from AD and a dud from Rondo and Mirotic. Yes, anything can happen here to extend the series to 6 or 7, but don’t count on it… the odds tell us that the Pelicants won’t be up to the task. #Warriors #Pelicans

NBA Playoffs Update:

  • Sixer fan’s ready to throw up after seeing his team throw away a chance to tighten this series with some unforgivable bonehead passes. You can’t chalk this up to youth and inexperience, as one of the culprits was veteran JJ Redick. As usual, Boston gains the upper hand at the end (and coming out of a time out) by running an ingenious seal play, designed to free up veteran Al Horford under the basket. Coaching still matters in the NBA, and with Brad Stevens, the men in green have a huge advantage. #Celtics #Sixers
  • LeBron applies Le Massive Facial to the Raptors in a close shave Game 3; hey, Toronto, you fall behind by 17, miss too many foul shots and let the King get the ball at the end, you know how it’s gonna end.  Time to let the Celtics try and stop this guy… unless Casey’s chumps have more fight in them for Game 4.

NBA Playoffs Update:

  • Jazz shoot themselves in the foot and get seriously licked in the vicinity of the Great Salt Lick by The Beard and his Houston cohorts. Utah looked flat and confused on offense, and now has one more chance to pull a rabbit out of their collective hat before this things gets completely hopeless. It would help if they had something resembling a post up player (no Favors doesn’t qualify) .. but then again, name a real post up player left in the playoffs (Embiid? Horford?). #Rockets #Jazz
  • PS — Perhaps the Rockets were particularly riled up after looking at those butt ugly Jazz home unis, which bear a definite resemblance to the rainbow themed garb worn by that other Houston team… the Stros
  • For those of us dreaming of a comeuppance for the Dubs, tonight’s sound beating administered by the Pels was definitely a step in the right direction. GSW’s bench was completely squelched, and Draymond Green did lots more posturing and posing than actual substantive work. The question becomes, how much longer will Kerr permit Rondo to deal and dish to his unfettered delight? Why on earth would you not just let this guy shoot (he was something like 2-14), and just focus on covering AD and the rest of the targets. #Warriors #Pelicans

NBA Playoffs Update:

  • Tatum assassinates the visiting Sixers with an assortment of jumpers, stylish drives and great defense, and the rest of the C’s look well caffeinated after a sluggish start. Time to sweat, Brett … whatever your game plan is … it isn’t working in this series. #Sixers #Celtics
  • Feeling absolutely no pressure, Cleveland torches Toronto with near 60% shooting, and this latest bit of misery just adds to the storm of playoff excrement raining down on the Raptors. #Cavaliers #Raptors
