    With the exception of perhaps "the block," this now has to be one of my all-time favorite blocks:

    Nate's body control and timing was very good on that. He got all ball.

    Nate has been amazing during this series. If the Bulls weren't so depleted, I think they could take this series from the Heat.

    I doubt it. Deng and Hinrich don't change this series.

    The Heat are still playing in 2nd gear. They haven't had to ramp it up yet.

    How about with a healthy Deng, Hinrich, and Rose?

    I'm not such a big Rose fan. I certainly don't think he swings a series in the first few games he is back.

    THIS was awesome.

    I really don't get caught up in rooting for individual players but Joakim Noah is a dude who I really enjoy watching.
    As a Pistons fan, I sorta view him as a combination of Laimbeer and Rodman.

    Just plain bad scouting and player evaluation there....of course it happen a few years earlier in 2001 when the Pistons took Rodney White at the 8th spot and the Celtics drafted Joe Johnson at # 9....Zebo and Tony Parker were chosen a few picks later....so you never know what you getting unless your scout has lived with the player the past couple of years prior to the draft. No one in the Pistons Org probably saw Darko prior to 2003...it was all hype...

    Tonight's Spurs-Warriors game just might end up being the best game of the postseason so far. Must watch TV.

    After a poor first round of playoffs, this second round is amazing me.

    I didn't expect the Warriors to win 2 games against the Spurs, however they seem to be running out of fuel (Curry and Thompson), but Barnes is raising up but it's not enough to beat the old man Spurs.

    Memphis playing is great, Of course we all know that with Russell Westbrook running the show it may be 3-1 in OKC way, but Durant was missing every shot the last game and Memphis took over. But Durant is known for not quitting. He can lift up a 1-3 series.

    The East is getting boring.. After games 1 and 2 Chicago ran out of fuel too. They just have a lot.. A LOT of Heart, man.. I Love seeing Noah fighting everybody.. I wish I could listening what he said the entire game. Jimmy Butler and Nate Robinson are also great players, but they can't match the Heat. Too bad Deng, Hinrich and Rose are out.. it could have been a GREAT Playoffs series.

    And New York is getting hammered by Indiana... Paul George is rising to the ocation and defending Carmelo with great results.

    I don't see them beating them in the Madison Square Garden, so, they will have to take them in game 6 or the Pacers will be screwed.

    Anyway, I don't see New York giving too much problems to Miami. I even dare to say they can sweep them in 4.
    But I do see the Pacers maybe winning 1 or 2 games before Lebron and company take over.

    Miami are the Eastern champions, we all knew that in february.
    But what about the West? San Antonio vs Memphis is a possibility? .. How far can the Spurs go?

    Spurs vs Heat in the finals?? Of course, Miami will have the odds on their side, but San Antonio will have a good shot at them, they have depth, they have skills, they have experience...

    No way the Spurs beat Miami in a 7 game series. The one team that I have as the big time dark horse is Memphis. They are straight up schooling OKC at the moment. Forcing them to grind and pound and they cant do it.
