NBA Update (Playoffs, Round 2):

  • Celtics had better find their smelling salts good and quick, as it’s now or never time. What went wrong? They got schooled by Milwaukee’s bench, and didn’t get enough from their own. There’s also a noticeable problem with chemistry, and you’ve got to direct some attention in the direction of Kyree. In many ways, things seemed rosier last year with Rozier making at least a tangible contribution. All is not lost, but does Boston realize believe it has the ability to go on the road against this No.1 seed and impose its will? #Bucks #Celtics
  • Houston wins and thanks to another inspiring performance by Harden will be riding on the coattails of The Red Eye back to The Oracle tied 2-2. As usual, when they started playing not to lose, they very nearly gave it away, and that’ll be no way to survive in Game 5 … . #Warriors #Rockets

NBA Update (Playoffs, Round 2):
  • They couldn’t be faulted for tiring after the 4 OT marathon on Saturday night, but the Nuggets and Millsap weren’t about to be sapped of their strength of fortitude.  Denver and its never-say-die attitude are now sitting pretty for Game 5 in Mile High.  #Nuggets #TrailBlazers
  • It wasn’t easy, but the Raptors finally rolled up their sleeves and did some dirty work down in the trenches. Rebounds were even, and the visitors penetrated the paint, while holding Embiid largely at bay. #Raptors #Sixers

NBA Update (Playoffs, Round 2):

  • Just when many were justifiably resolved to write the Rockets off, they buck up and slap down the stubborn Warriors, who’ve been harder to get rid of than a recurring google pop up add. Drama is alive and well in this series, as Houston now has new life. #Warriors #Rockets

NBA Update (Playoffs, Round 2):

  • Milwaukee steps up, with a monster win in Boston, punctuated by complete domination in the paint. The Celtics were hitting threes in the first half, but when that reservoir of points dried up, trouble followed. They’ll need to figure out how to penetrate that Buck defense (like they did in Game 1) if they are to have any chance in a truly do or die Game 4. It can be done, but it will take willpower, fortitude … and faith…. not to mention their big men playing bigger. And seeing more from Hayward, Rozier and Baynes off the bench would also help.. #Bucks #Celtics
  • Down by two and time draining away in the 4th OT, the home crowd pleaded “All we need is one three, Rodney”, and the only Blazer on the floor with anything left in the tank hoodwinked Barton with a nice head fake and then delivered to their pleasure.  #Trailblazers #Nuggets

NBA Update (Playoffs, Round 2):

  • Prime time el foldo job by the NBA’s poster-boy pretenders … the fragile Raptors. Where were the happy feet of little Lowry and take-a-seat Van Vleet (a combined 2-17)? If Toronto’s backcourt keeps this up, there’s simply nothing that lionhearted Leonard can do about it. #Raptors #Sixers

NBA Update (Playoffs, Round 2):

  • Jokic didn’t have the usual spring in his step when doing the Baby Huey shuffle, and that hurt Denver a lot more than Damian’s overcast mood and off target antics hurt the Blazers. Advantage to bow tie Terry and hisBlazers, as the series moves North by Northwest. #TrailBlazers #Nuggets

NBA Update (Playoffs, Round 2):

  • Mason forgot about his bricks tonight, and instead slams with conviction; Denver wears down a very dangerous Portland team with poise and precision on offense and a relentless, hounding defense. #Nuggets #Trailblazers
  • Toronto surrenders home court advantage good and pronto, with a rather weakling effort on the boards in Game 2; only a superb effort by Leonard and some loose custodianship of the ball by the Sixers kept this close. #Sixers #Raptors

NBA Update (Playoffs, Round 2):

  • Abortive blast off and turbulent finish doom Houston, as it blows a juicy chance to steal Game 1. Even with Harden off target and Paul having difficulty holding on to the ball (5 TOs), the Rockets were in position to win, but could never get their half court offense untracked. Particularly disappointing was the play of Capella, who was a complete and total non-factor, and an overall inability to control the boards and/or get things going with the three point shot. Overall, it was a sloppy game from GSW as well, which also got helped out by various missed foul calls on Houston threes. Bottom line is Houston needs to a better job limiting Golden State possessions and running their offense if they hope to even do as well as the Clipper and take 2-3 games. #Rockets #Warriors
  • Milwaukee has the freak, but Boston has the offensive firepower, and that, combined with a crowding, suffocating defense resulted in a laugher for the Celtics today against the favored Bucks. After watching this, it’s not exactly clear what adjustments the No. 1 seed can actually make to make themselves more competitive. #Celtics #Bucks

Random NBA ChabDognostications:
1) Boston wins more than a few for No. 17, and moves on in its quest for No. 17 + 1;
2) Toronto creams Philly;
3) Houston finally learns how to stick the knife in, and twist it; in a fit of rage, Durant gives in, going with the full on Barkley bald look
4) Baby Huey’s all grows’d up, and takes up too much space to be pushed out of the Rose Garden. Denver in 6.

NBA Update (Playoffs, Rounds 1 and 2):

  • Nuggets fight their way into the next round, on the strength of a whopper of a game from Baby Huey Nikola and just-in-time infusion of offense from Jamal.  And what was up with that weird decision by SA to let Denver just drain 85% of the last 20 seconds off the clock….Did Pop forget how to add? #Spurs #Nuggets
  • Fitness and speed win out over size/Embiid. Toronto imposes itself in rare measure for a playoff opener, … a by product of high achievement by Kawhi. This is just a very bad match up for the Sixers. #Sixers #Raptors

NBA (Playoffs, Round 1):

  • The rain delay is over, the Slim Reaper’s hood can come off, and the real battle can now be waged; bully Durant ruthlessly rains a deluge of threes down on the heads of the drenched Clippers and the reigning champs prepare to meet a team they eclipsed last year by the thinnest of margins. Time for the Clippers to go fishing. #Warriors #Clippers

NBA Update (Playoffs, Round 1):

  • Prideful San Antonio feeds off the crowd on its side to put away the Nuggets and force a 7th game decider. It was a bit of a puzzler, for the Nuggets, who owned the paint but got killed further out (where was the usual support from Murray and Harris). This sets up a winner-take-all pressure cooker at high altitude. Maybe a pep talk from the Skywalker is in order (or how about Dan Issel). #Nuggets #Spurs.
  • “Hondo”, the Celtic legend who was always around the ball, always in the middle of everything, passes for the last time. Not only did he “steal the ball”, he re-wrote the record book, presided over the very heart of Celtic greatness (8-0 in the Championship Finals), created a new position (did he go in as a guard or a forward, and did he go in as a sixth man or a starter), and was equally lethal on both sides of the ball.And he was a playing paradox, how could someone so effective, look at times slightly uncoordinated. I remember the tapes of him dribbling the ball, seemingly looking at the ball while dribbling. And he didn’t really have a signature move. But despite some awkwardness, you knew you could trust him at the end, when it really mattered. The 1974 Championship Series, was case in point. Thank you for that high arching shot over Jabbar (I think it was near the endline) to win Game 6 (I think memory serves). Yes, John Havlicek, you deserved the MVP, and you deserve permanent enshrinement in the mind of any real basketball fan, whatever the position.

NBA Update (Playoffs, Round 1):

  • Clippers close the deficit with a most impressive, hard earned victory over the disbelieving defending champs. For whatever reason, all those threes that usually find the bottom of the net, rimmed, bounced and clanked out, and it was the other team that kept its composure. #Clippers #Warriors
  • Jazz quintet goes down without a 2nd win, but not without a very captivating fight in enemy territory. Rockets could be ready to take an all important next step. #Jazz #Rockets

NBA Update (Playoffs, Round 1):

  • Surreal scene in Rip City, as Damian Stone Cold Killer Lillard squelches OKC with a 50 point night, including a Curryesque parking lot three as time expires. Maybe Barkley is right?! #Thunder #Blazers
  • Murray dances for over 30, Jokic plays his prototypical balanced, and unintentionally awe-inspiring, all-court game. #Spurs #Nuggets
  • Let’s give Head Nurse some credit for stabilizing a somewhat wobbly Toronto team after Game 1; Raptors have gotten over their jitters, and getting big contributions up and down the line up (but when have we seen this before … and before spectacular meltdowns). #Raptors #Magic
  • Awful chilly reception in Philly for the poor Nets … who get completed manhandled in the paint by jive talkin Joel. This sets up what should be a terrific Round 2 battle with Toronto. #Nets #Sixers

NBA Update (Playoffs, Round 1):

  • Unfortunately for Detroit, they have 1/2 man, 1/2 mummy Blake Griffin and Reggie Jackson, but they don’t have a straw man to stir their drink. Milwaukee advances with ease. #Bucks #Pistons
  • Crowder, Rubio and Favors kept the home crowd into it long enough for Donovan to shoot himself out of a bad stretch; better offense, combined with a swiss cheese Houston defense send this Series back to Houston for what should be a Game 5 filled with major melodrama. #Rockets #Jazz
