    Yea, epic choke job by the Clippers and the Thunder got lucky as hell. I don't like the OKC matchup for the Spurs even though I think the Spurs are by far the better team so I'm curious to see how that series will play out, I'm thinking Durant will need to average about 30 a night for them to win.
    OKC would beat the Spurs in 6. The Spurs have no one capable of stopping the OKC point guards. Reggie Jackson destroyed the Spurs this year.

    He probably averaged over 20 a game vs. the Spurs.

    Plus OKC has the length and athleticism to cover and bother the Spurs perimeter shooters.

      If he passes to KD or Westbrook it's an easy layup.
      I said the same thing.

      Everyone in the house was sleep and I yelled out, "WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING!"

      He has the league MVP and a red hot Russell Westbrook wide open for an easy bucket and he wants to play hero. That SOB is lucky the Thunder pulled it out or he'd be getting destroyed right now.

        Yea I don't like how the Spurs matchup with OKC, on the other hand I think Miami would beat OKC relatively easily, just like a few years ago.

          Sadly, I concur.

          We play too much ISO and Scott Brooks is a mental midget when it comes to offensive play calling.

          Take a look at this video from game 4 of the OKC-LAC series. It's about 15 minutes of OKC running the same ineffective offensive set over and over again, allowing the Clippers to come back and steal a win.



          This is a huge indictment of Scott Brook's coaching ability.

          • The Pacers should be embarrassed. In an elimination game, in Indiana, how the hell do you get beat that badly?

            Also, they were outrebounded 62-23. That's how you know there was just a total lack of effort.

            I get that your shots might not fall some nights but effort has a lot to do with rebounding, and you don't get outrebounded by 40 unless you just don't give a damn. And apparently they didn't give damn.

            • Nice choke by the Nets tonight.

              • Damn, Steve Kerr is turning down the Knicks to take the Warriors job.

                Everyone is walking away from that organization. Carmelo is probably next.

                  I went to read an article about the game after seeing this.

                  The first sentence:

                  MIAMI (AP) -- This trip to the Eastern Conference finals did not come easily for Miami.

                  Uh, what?

                  A complete routing of the Bobcats in four games, and then the underachieving Nets who they burned through in five games. A real murderer's row.

                  • I wonder if this is it for Garnett.

                    I think Pierce is a year or two younger than KG so I can see him making another run at it.

                      After signing with the Bulls for the veteran minimum. Good idea.

                        It's gonna be nice spending those Nets first rounders in the next few years. This may have been a one year window for them with Garnett on his last leg, Pierce's inevitable major decline, Deron Williams looking like no more than an above average player right now and their big man's foot problem.

                          GS is a much better job, the Knicks are fucked for years.

                            Yup.

                            Got a nice young star to build around and a pretty solid team as a whole.

                            After Melo's certain departure in the next few months, the Knicks will have absolutely nothing to work with.

                              Knicks were also supposedly hesitant to give him a 5 yr/$5M per yr deal.

                              Cant blame them them for that with his next to no coaching experience.

                              • Feh. The Knicks have all the money in the world...they could have paid it without blinking. He just did not want to go to a lesser job.
