    Re: Your NBA Playoffs.....Blazers Win!!! Blazers Win!!!

    I can't say I've ever seen a team just give up the way the Cavs did. Down by 9 with about 50 seconds left, the straits are dire, but not hopeless. Its the NBA, weird things can happen. Get a steal, hit a couple 3 pointers, I've seen it happen.

    But they just ..... gave up. Its a deciding game. If you lose your season is over. You had the best record in the NBA, you're the #1 seed. Do anything, try everything, battle to the buzzer. But no. Bizarre.

    Pay attention to the open sky

    Isn't that a result of having no game 7's?

    I'd imagine for the conference finals and NBA finals they would need to schedule each game to hit on an exact day. So the fact that the series all finished early leaves a break.

    Exactly. This series ended a game early. I don't know what's so unusual about the next series starting on Sunday. They had to account for a game 7 in Cleveland

    That really surprised me. As a Celtics fan I was feeling comfortable with that lead with a minute left but I've seen enough NBA games to realize that a lead like that could disappear in that little time. Like that Reggie Miller game against the Knicks. But CLE just stood there and let BOS run the clock out. It was a bit disappointing to me.

    His playoff numbers are exceeding his already impressive regular season numbers by a good bit.
    Who is 1? Nash? Or Deron Williams?

    As for Rondo, he is still the 4th best point guard in my book. But he is closing fast. It still goes Paul, Williams, Nash (sentimental maybe, but the guy can still play) then Rondo.

    Can we "unthank?" First, I didn't know you were a Celtic fan and then you have to bring up the Reggie Miller game? Why not add in the Charles Smith missing 8 tips against Chicago too?

    Jerk.

    That's OK, Puffy. You still have the Willis Reed game to hang your hat on. Or were you even born yet? :

    Ok, so maybe I overreacted. It's not the first time and won't be the last, so deal with it, jerks.

    Remember Reggie Miller vs. the Knicks ... I do. The Cavs flat out quit in the last couple minutes of the game.

    Looks like Mike Brown's going to get the boot at around 2:30 today.

    I'd say Nash, though most of that is because I see the Suns and C's play more than the Jazz or Hornets. And also because both Nash and Rondo have better dudes to play with.

    It is starting to look like Boston can win it all. Their defense has been stifling. They would be a very difficult match-up for LA. Rondo would absolutely destroy them (w/ Fisher guarding him).

    Fisher wouldn't guard him, Kobe would.
