    3 of the series were so short, nothing to watch now. Can anyone guess who will win the SAN/Memphis series? I have no idea. I would go with Memphis if pressed to pick one but its going to be pretty close.

    I think it will be close too. I'm pulling for Memphis.

    If you want MIA to lose, I'd back Memphis. I think they are one of the few teams in the league which could concievably upset the Heat. I don't see the Spurs beating them in 7.

    Terrible game from the Griz tonight. I think they will recover, because I can't see them playing any worse. The spurs had an unbelievable shooting night against one of the best defensive teams in the league.

    They lost the first game to the Clippers and Thunder and came back to win those series, so lets not panic until they are down 3-0...

    If the Spurs are going to shoot 48% from three you can pack up the Grizz, Heat and/or Pacers right now and send them home. If they return to a level closer to their season average (around 37%), then someone else, including the Grizz, has a chance. This has now become a coaching battle and it will be interested to see how the Grizz adjust.

    This is the best WCF matchup I could've hoped for. I'd be very happy with either one of these teams winning the West. It would be great to see Tay at the Finals again. It would also be great to see the old farts of San Antonio battle the glamorous Miami boys.

    Well they won't shoot like that on the road, dBA.
    I'm kinda happy for the Pace. They have toed the line for years and finally have something to show for it.
    It's over now but they can fine tune.

    It's impressive all the options to score that San Antonio has... I think they can stop the Heat..

    Grizz come back from 18 down at the end of three to send the game in OT. But Duncan playing with 5 fouls going into OT scores 6 of the Spurs 8 points and they prevail in OT 93-89.

    Both teams suck air in the last two minutes of regulation as the Grizz blew ample opportunities to win in regulation as the Spurs missed their last 7 shots and Grizz grab the tie with flagrant 1, but both Gasol and Zebo miss plenty of bunnies and allow Spurs to hold serve on their home court.

    I see Spurs losing game 3, but winning game 4 in Memphis.

    That would ice it for the Spurs, something no one else could do.

    If the Pacers lose this series 4-3, the coach will be second guessed on why he had Roy Hibbert sitting on the bench the last 40 seconds of OT, allowing King James to first go ahead at 10.8 seconds in the game 101-99, and then after Paul George hits three FT's with 2.2 seconds left, Hibbert is sitting on the bench as the Kings goes straight to the hoop for mini contested layup. The play and non-coaching event by Vogel was scrutinized on TNT, ESPN, NBA TV Facebook and Twitter as soon as James made the winning layup as those fans still up around the USA yelled a collective cheer and OMG!!.

    Heat took back what look like a certain improbable steal by the Pacers beating them on James layup 103-102.

    Great game and the Pacers proved that despite the loss, they may have been a better team...but its all about who leading when the clock runs out.

    I love Eastern Conference playoff ball. The slug outs.

    Indy lost a winnable game, but they did a lot of stupid things outside of Hibbert sitting.

    I liked Vogel in the Sounds of the Game bits,

    Great game!

    Hibbert must have been in foul trouble. Smart coaching move - you don't want your starting center at risk of fouling out of the game in the last 40 seconds. Better to keep him out of there entirely.

    I have a hard time coming up with a list of 5 guys that I wouldn't trade for Paul George.
